Wow, over a year since my last post. Guess it's time to blow off the dust and put this bad boy back to use. Blogging was fun for me. It was just me writing about whatever I wanted without caring about anything, until it became a competition. And that's when the fun was gone and I felt too bothered to keep up with it anymore. Because having a general "lifestyle" blog with no specific direction was laughable to other, more mainstream bloggers that considered themselves more successful. I had very few people in my family or social circle even supporting my blog. I had more responsibilities at work and was stretching myself too thin, so I stopped. I gave up.
But now, I'm ready to give it another shot. I'm not doing it for the page views (even if they are nice to see!) I'm doing it for my damn self. It's nice to get back in here and put my thoughts together. De-stress a little. Gather myself. Share silly things, important things, or just nothing. It will give me something to do. I'll re-structure my blog, give it a face lift, and decide on how I want to move forward with it.
I've been married a year and a half now. Shocking right? I can't believe I never mentioned this to you guys before I stopped posting. Still no kids, maybe in the next few years. Maybe. I'm just not ready yet. Well not just me, both of us. WE aren't ready yet.
I'm still travelling for work, part of the reason I stopped posting. I was only supposed to be out a few times a year, but then I (guess) proved myself to be competent enough that I started travelling more often. At least 1x a month, sometimes 2x. These trips are usually Wed-Sat or Sun, so that takes up a good chunk of my time. I can't even think about how many weekends I lost to my job. But then again I am gaining experience. That's more important than sitting around doing nothing. Travel experience, job experience, life experience, etc. There's no limit on learning new things is there?
I've had a traumatizing run in with bed bugs in Las Vegas at Caesar's Palace this summer. I almost wanted to blog about that and how I hated Vegas. BUT I will give Vegas another chance. I am bound to have to go there again for work at some point.
I turned into an even bigger shopaholic. Even more so on makeup and beauty. I wish I could post everything I've bought, but due to recent events, I will keep a lot under wraps. Also people are judgmental as fuck. Whatever I choose to do with my money is none of your damn business. Hence me never moving through with turning this into a swatch blog for similar skin tones. I find it hard to find swatches on skin tones similar to mine. And if I do, I always feel like they've been shopped. That idea is still an option. Maybe. But I'm deff not turning this into a full on beauty blog. There are too many of those. And for now, I don't think I will be doing many reviews either. We'll see.
So how have y'all been? Miss me at all? lol Kidding.
Until next time,
