In this post I want to give myself a tap on the back and share how I finally managed to find the right balance when it comes to blogging, being consistent with it and most importantly: being happy with it. I love writing, editing and scheduling posts but, without a solid plan, blogging quickly becomes a chore. I started off wanting to put as much content out there as possible, trying to top very successful bloggers by posting articles every weekday. Of course it started real sweet, but shortly after it became impossible. I would miss out on one post, be discouraged and end up being inconsistent.

Since a couple of Catrice Cosmetics eyeshadows recently made it into my favorites list, I decided to give the palettes from this brand a try and start off with their latest release: the Chocolate Nudes. My eyes opened up wide when I noticed that it had a variety of different finishes available: matte, satin and shimmer. I always have the impression that Catrice usually likes to go for only shimmery shades which, to be totally honest, makes it seem like their palettes shouldn't be purchased by a 25 year old (to put it nicely). Anyhow, I like the color selection of Chocolates Nudes, they are exactly the type of shades I like to combine for a daytime smoky eye nowadays.

To follow up on the post where I explained that I'm a person who washes her hair every day, sharing my favorite shampoos next only seemed an obvious step. The funny thing is: even though I have long hair that gets greasy easily I don't actually use shampoos catered for people who have oily hair and I don't have an irritated scalp from doing what I do! Here's why.

I spend an enormous amount of time online and I follow more people than I am actually followed by myself on all of my social media accounts combined. I follow creators because I genuinely like their content, I don't comment for a comment and I don't like for a like. If I ever made you think that way I can tell you I am very much allergic to bullshit and I consider my time precious. Have I ever attempted doing it? Absolutely! Funny enough it just got me extremely bored.

Anything marketed 'au naturel' that can give my looks just that little bit of extra oomph really speaks to me, so when I took a glance at the Essence Cosmetics makeup display yesterday my eye fell on three new no makeup look nail polish shades with a powdery finish. Even though the polishes of this brand are not so much my thing the concept was just too interesting to let it go! I picked up the darkest shade of them all, 03 Powdery Nude, not really knowing what to expect I started prepping my nails and added a base coat.

For some reason I always manage to surround myself with people who have great and interesting college degrees, there is not one person I know that doesn't have one or that is not studying at the moment. Even though I've learned to accept I don't have one and probably never will have that piece of paper in my hands, I still find it very frustrating and I need to remind myself every single day that there is more to life than academic skills.

I've been browsing through the rest of H&M Beauty's new makeup collection and since I am so enthusiastic about their new single eyeshadows I decided to pick up their Eye Fidelity Primer. The name of the product is real catchy and the style reminds me a bit of Urban Decay's Primer Potion. Let's see how faithful this primer actually is, and on top of that how it works combined with their shadows!
