Now onto the updates...
It's been the busiest summer on record for me, but that's all coming to an end very soon. Once my son is back in school I will be able to post every single day, sometimes more than once a day. Of course life happens and there may be days I don't post but I plan to make a post every day! I love blogging, and it's hard for me to not blog -- not so much because I feel like I let my readers down (which I do feel) but mainly because I have so much fun blogging. I get to play with beauty products and take pictures (I'm a former photographer), so it never feels like work; it's just a fun hobby!
About the blog sale:
The blog sale will launch in September at some point. I should complete putting together the blog sale within the first week my son is in school, but I can't really put an exact date on it just yet. Those that wanted to be the first to shop the blog sale will get the chance to before anyone else - a full 48 hours or more! Then I will make a formal blog sale post on this blog and link the blog sale from my website (which is where the blog sale will be hosted). Since I have a little more time to put together the blog sale I'm actually able to add even more items!
I'm getting closer and closer to 500 followers; once I reach 500 followers (or get pretty close) I'm going to put together a nice giveaway, as my thank-you to all my readers. I will likely have more than one prize to giveaway!
Upcoming blog posts:
I still have a bunch of Mally products to share with you; August has just been so busy that I haven't gotten around to taking photos of them all. I believe there are 11 more different Mally products I have to post about.
I will also have swatches, before & after pics and a review on Benefit's They're Real! Mascara - which is a mascara I've wanted to try since the first day it launched. I'm pretty hooked on Mally's Volumizing Mascara, but I'm really looking forward to trying something new and sharing my results with you.
With back to school season here, I plan to post some quick and easy morning makeup routines plus some back to school beauty tips.
I plan to continue with the Pink Wednesdays posts; I've really slacked on doing them. I did do a Pink Wednesday manicure this past Wednesday, but I wasn't at home to take photos of it and right now it's all chipped. I may do the same mani next Wednesday because I really like it (it was all about my love for my husband).
I'm going to Sephora next week sometime to exchange my DDF acne medication because I ordered it online - it costs $42 - and I found it at TJMaxx for just $16! I had found it the same day I ordered it online, so I just waited for it to arrive in the mail so I could exchange it. I don't know what I plan to exchange it for but I do have my eye on the Too Faced Smokey Eye boxed palette because I loved the Naked Eye boxed palette so much and really like the darker shades in the Smokey Eye version. Of course every time I walk into Sephora I go into total squee mode and jump from product to product to product, swatching my hand and arm until there is no room left. Either way, new products are coming soon! :)
That's all the updates for now. Don't forget to enter my giveaways and continue to check back to the blog for new posts coming very soon!!
