Writing this post gives me chills. I can’t believe another year goes by and I also can’t believe it is my second Christmas in California. I really hope this year is better. Last year was kind of sad and lonely. By this time last year, I was moving to California, starting a new job and had no friends. I was missing my family and had nowhere to spend Christmas. But anyway, 2017 was a good one, full of emotions, growth and new beginnings. So, I am very excited for the new years and for the new goals to tackle.
I really love round-up posts in general, whether they’re monthly round-up posts, beauty round-up posts or anything personal. Just call me nosy AF. I know, sorry. So, this year I am very excited to write my own and share with you guys some of the most important dates and accomplishments of this year. I’ll divide it by months, only the relevant ones, and will mention what happened, did or accomplished during that month.
Hey, Dolls! On last week’s post, I talked about how to shop for beauty products and I also included a holiday shopping list. As of today, I wanted to write or share with you my holiday shopping list. Some of them are included in my gift guide, so you already know, and if you don’t make sure to download it for free. There are some great deals too, so grab a snack and continue reading.
Every time I tell someone I don’t like chocolate or coffee their immediate reaction is to cringe and ask where am I from. I mean, I get it but I also cringe at the smell of it or even worse, when you make those combinations of coffee and chocolate I get goosebumps and everything. You’ll flip out when you keep reading and find out what else I don’t like. Lol!
I started playing with makeup since I was thirteen because I belonged to a group of baton twirling. Like most people, or at least the ones I knew, I bought makeup from the drugstore, since clearly, I had no money to buy high-end makeup. Plus, I think a thirteen-year-old doesn’t need makeup that expensive, yet. I didn’t have anyone to teach me nor I knew the existence of YouTube. As time went by I learned a few things on my own, sadly, none of them were drawing my eyebrows, setting my concealer or drawing a cat eye.
