Dear Reader: I'm alive.

And still able to type, in case you were wondering.

The funniest thing about not having blogged in a whole month -- yes, a whole month -- is that it took my computer to dying to kick my butt back into gear.  Otherwise, god knows how long this lack of writing would have gone on.

To catch you up, I've started writing for a couple of publications.  Those articles will sneak around on here or on Twitter, but I probably won't go to huge lengths to promote them.  We're not that kind of blog.

Second, I've been streamlining my collection like crazy.  I've mentioned time and time again that I've wanted to get down to that point where I have one perfect full coverage foundation, one perfect brightener, one perfect red lip, one perfect nude lip, etc. but I'm happy to say...

I'm not nearly there yet.

I have, however, purged my collection and started attempting to purchase things that not only satisfy my purchase craving, but also add some substance to my round-up.  I've been trying so hard not to do that thing where a new drugstore cult item pops up *cough*RevlonKissableBalmStains*cough* and purchase every single colour I like.  I can't promise that won't happen from time to time, but here's hoping.

I'll leave you with a wish list/preview, so you know what there is to come.

Here's to healthy skin, fun looks and responsible purchasing.  Sort of.

  1. Of course you're not dead. I got that EL serum too, but won't start it any time soon it seems..
    Damn you Darphin & your new serum range.

  2. writing for publications? sounds so cool :)
    Hope that they go well~

  3. I will wait for more of your posts for sure! :)

  4. Thanks for your helpful comment on my blog about MUFE foundation :) Maybe the trick is to try it with more brushes. I have been using the Real Techniques stippling brush and it seems to work well.

    I have a small bottle of the Caudalie Beauty Elixir and I don't think it necessarily improves my skin, but it's refreshing to spritz on before applying my moisturiser. I have a 15ml bottle of Advanced Night Repair which I've been using on and off for the past couple of weeks, still deciding whether it works really well - but I think it does make a difference to the condition of my skin in the mornings on the nights that I put it on :)

    1. I've also used the RT Stippling brush -- it's great for light coverage! Glad you found a way to make it work =) Can't wait to fully review both the elixir and the serum. I'm loving both so far!
