Look What You Made Me Do

Remember my last post where I said I was bidding the beauty blogosphere adieu…?

This blog was going to be wiped from cyberspace tomorrow but at the last minute…like erm, 5 minutes ago, I paid for another 3 years of website hosting to keep this blog up and running.  YEP, I GOT SUCKED IN!!!  AGAIN!!!

I had grand plans to merge this beauty blog and my personal lifestyle blog together but I got confused by all the techie jargon (301 redirect, htcaccess…WTFBBQ?!!) so here I am, almost a year later, and a few hundred dollars poorer….

Rambling aside, I have genuinely missed beauty blogging.  I miss writing my reviews but I also miss reading beauty blogs too.  Nobody beauty blogs anymore!!!  Everyone’s on Insta with their heavily curated grid hustling for likes *rolls my eyes*

Anyway, this is me dropping in to say hello…and sh*t, I’ve done it again after I said I wouldn’t…

But oh well, let’s see how I keep up with beauty blogging here and resurrecting the other blog whilst juggling part-time work and a preschooler and a baby.  YAY!!!

Drop me a comment to reassure me that someone is still reading.  Cheers!!!

Life Lately

bobbi brown newest collection

Life has been pretty full-on lately with a lot of “things” and I haven’t exactly been in my usual happy place because of these “things” hence the lack of blog posts { and lack of email replies / reader requests posts / all that jazz }.  Sorrreeeee!!!!

Apart from the “things”, I’m not gonna lie but it’s hard doing this blogging gig because I work 5 days a week in a physically demanding job and I’m a full-time wife and momma to a highly energetic toddler { with a recent visit to A&E!!! #anotherstoryforanotherday }!  Plus I have a highly committed relationship with Netflix!

Anyway, I’m in the process of training my beauty blogging minion protege, Bunty Boo, to take over but she’s still learning the ropes.  We’ll get there!  One day!

Amongst all the busyness, I have attended some bloggie events, trialled some awesome new beauty products, painted my nails, got my hair did and other beauty stuff so stay tuned for future blog posts 🙂

Thanks for reading, as always, even though I am not a consistent beauty blogger! x

P.S.  Photo features the soon-to-be-released Bobbi Brown Limited Edition Telluride Collection.  Deets soon!

Looking Back At 2014

2014 on the best beauty blog
My digital detox is almost over!  There’s a few hiccups (nothing interesting #boringadultstuff) I need to sort out before I get back into regular beauty blogging but meanwhile, I thought I’d reflect back on the year that was 2014 on The Best Beauty Blog

Merry Christmas To You & Your Loved Ones!

This is the last post from me this year.  I’ll be back in 2015 with new posts and a few exciting giveaways so don’t miss out 🙂

Due to recent tragic events around the world (Sydney siege and Peshawar attack – I don’t know how to properly articulate my feelings about these heartbreaking tragedies so I won’t) , I’ve decided to take my Christmas beauty blog break early and treasure every possible moment with my family (Mum, Dad and sister) who are visiting from overseas right now.  They came to celebrate Bunty’s first birthday with us!

I want to wish you and your loved ones a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

Peace out,

#HFMD

hand foot & mouth disease

In case you don’t follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you will be glad to miss out on hearing me whinge but I’m currently suffering from #HFMD – Hand, Foot & Mouth Disease…courtesy of baby girl Bunty who has a deadly attraction to all germs!  “I see germs.  Put it in my mouth!”
