So guys, it’s time for me to come clean with you. In recent times, I have not been enjoying the beauty blogging world.
When I started this blog in 2013, I was SO excited about everything to do with beauty. I wanted every new release, every lipstick shade, and loved watching hours and hours of beauty gurus on YouTube. I would pore over makeup books, compare swatches to find the perfect dupe, and just go ham. Over time, and most recently, this year, I have grown disinterested in the beauty side of things. I’m not sure why, but I’ve just come to think that it’s just not me. I always have felt like a bit of a fraud in this world.
Don’t get me wrong, I am still interested in some aspects of the beauty world. At the moment I am exploring natural and DIY skincare, and I am experimenting with a few different things. I’ve got a few blog posts and projects in the works coming up that I am really excited about, but I thought I should be honest with you guys – my readers.
It’s also not to say that makeup and conventional beauty products will never appear on the blog again. I will still blog about things that I love when they come up. It’s just going to be a much smaller portion of my blog in the future.
I totally understand if this isn’t what you signed up for when you began reading my blog. Even a few months ago I was grabbing things at Priceline and Mecca Maxima, but it was just…habit. I don’t have a passion for this industry anymore, or at least, the larger part of the industry that I was focused on before.
So in short – I totally get if you want to unfollow, unsub, etc. But I can’t write about something that I’m not genuinely interested in. There will be a few posts here and there still about conventional makeup still, but it is no longer the main focus of this space. Sorry for the rawness of this blog post, but I wanted to get real with you guys before I do a big relaunch.
On a positive note, I am very excited to start blogging and sharing more about topics that I am exploring more now. You can expect more posts about veganism, minimalism, a journey into zero waste, organisation and mindfulness. I hope you stick around to read what I have to say <3
Peace and Love. x
