LATEST UPDATE: February 27, 2023

My doctor says I’m able to travel! Due to the return flight prices, I had to bump up my plans to mid March. I’ll be in Germany for two months and I estimate that posts from now until the beginning of June may be on an irregular schedule and cover topics other than reviews (could be swatchfests, ranking posts, anti-hauls, etc.). Having to fly earlier than expected leaves me very little room to prepare in advance, but I will still do my best to make sure the posts I make while away from home will be worthwhile.


PREVIOUS UPDATE: January 5, 2023

Post-surgery recovery has been going well. I shouldn’t have much longer to go until I’m finished with physical therapy. My nerve pain and mobility issues have improved tremendously, and that’s how I was able to post more consistently than I expected at the end of last year! My final check-up with my surgeon will take place at the end of February. It’s very likely that I will be returning to Germany in Spring and I might be there for 6-8 weeks. My aim for posting at least once a week hasn’t changed, but as they say, “The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.”
I’m writing this update in the event that I’m unable to post every Monday, or if there’s a significant gap between posts. Of course,
if you’re following via email, you won’t need to worry about missing any posts, including any potential bonus ones for the week. Thank you for understanding!


This page will remain here as a guide to the blog!

On the left side menu are the links to my ongoing Series posts (ex: Fude Series, Low-Buy Series, etc.) along with “Recent Posts.” Cell phone and tablet users can click where it says Navigation to open the drop-down menu for those Series posts, as well as scroll to the bottom to see the most Recent posts.

The “Table of Contents” section will help you find a particular category you may be looking for (eyeshadows, lipsticks, perfume, subscription services, beauty articles, etc.). There is also a search bar if there’s a particular product or topic you have in mind already!

My blog officially launched August 16th, 2015. I haven’t stopped testing things out, so if I make any changes to the format you’ll find them noted right here on the main page. I hope to see you again soon, beautiful! 😉
