Sooooo. Long time no post, eh? I wish I could say that I’ve been trying, but I really haven’t. I have had absolutely no motivation when it comes to the blog. But there’s nothing quite like talking about my favorite products of the month to help motivate me again! So at least for today, I have a new post!!! Whoo! ? As far as the rest of life, well…. The President-Elect is still making horrible decisions and making me question the viability of being American, and beyond horrible news seems to be hitting some of my friends, but things are going well enough on my part so at least there’s that! ? It’s been a roller coaster of a month so I’m glad to see it go, but I do wish I could relive Thanksgiving. It’s been so long since my little family has had a Thanksgiving with everyone in relatively good health. Fortunately this year everyone was healthy enough to enjoy it and we all did! ? If you’re curious, the “we” consists of just me, my Mom and my Dad. Basically the only family that’s ever been around me with any regularity and I love them dearly. If you remember, the past two Christmases have been delayed – last year until February! – due to health issues in the family so I’m hoping that this Christmas will be equally as enjoyable…and on time! ? But now we’re getting ahead of things and we have a lot of favorites to cover this month! So, on to my Cruelty Free November Favorites. ?
Ah, October! I feel like it’s been a weird month and, in case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been a bit MIA on the blog. I’ve been trying to plug away at posting regularly, but I just haven’t been able to keep it up. I’m not sure what the problem is. I could just be so wrapped up in the US election coverage (which I totally am ?) that I can’t pull myself away to write. It could be my general lack of motivation lately. Whatever it is, I’m feeling a bit uninspired, distracted and just have had a lot of trouble completing tasks. So here we are. Another favorites post and I really honestly have very little to discuss. I want to keep the tradition going – partly because I usually love these kinds of posts and partly just to prove that I still can write a post. I have very rarely applied any makeup this month and when I have, it’s been nothing new or noteworthy so I don’t have makeup favorites. However, I do have a couple of additions to my “beauty” routine that are worth mentioning, a few lifestyle favorites, and I even have a complete disappointment! I hope you’ll stay tuned, and I hope you will continue bearing with me through this weird rough blogging patch. ?
Not only am I shocked and horrified that it’s already October, but I managed to spot some Christmas merch at the grocery store today! ? Yes folks! September has come to a shockingly fast close, which means it’s time for another Cruelty Free Favorites post! I don’t feel like I have a ton of favorites to go over, but I’m sure this will be long as always despite that. ? Instead of me rambling about nothing, let’s get on to me rambling about the products I loved in the month of September! ?
Ok. August is over and I don’t know whether to feel slightly excited or rather sad. I love the summer months so much, but then there’s something kind of welcoming about autumn. So I’m torn between not wanting the warm, sunny weather to end – I hate the cold so so much! – and the new and exciting fall colors with enticing new beauty launches. But August is gone, so no use dwelling on that! Instead let’s wander back through my Cruelty Free Beauty Favorites of the month!
July has come and gone which means it is time for another Monthly Favorites post! It’s been a really hot and humid July and I’m guessing that August will bring even more of the sweat-drenched sunny days. 😀 I’m all for the sunshine, but I could do without the humid. 😉 Anyway, July’s been a decent month. I can’t say that I’ve really done much, but no complaints from this corner. I haven’t been wearing a ton of makeup, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t have some stand outs that I keep reaching for over and over and over again! Without further ado, I bring you my July Favorites for 2016!!!
I never managed to put together an annual favorites post in 2015 because the shit hit the fan around that time. It’s all good now and a lot of great products have entered my life since the clock struck midnight on New Year’s Eve! Because of that, and because we’ve kind of reached the half way point of the year (in blog favorites terms), I thought I would compile some of my top finds so far from 2016! Not all of these are brand new products, but I hadn’t tried them before. The one thing they all have in common is that they are fantastic! 🙂 No more suspense, let’s get to the good stuff!
