I’m sorry! I know this was supposed to be up on Friday, but it has been a crazy past week! (No excuses though) My days have pretty much been looking all the same. Work from morning to evening, gym for a couple hours right after work, sleep, and do it all over again the next day. I haven’t really had time to do anything leisurely, like blog or work in my bullet journal at all this month, but to be fair, I have shifted my priorities a lot, and I have less time to do “fun” things at the moment. But I’ve finally been able to sit down and write a review on the Pixi Overnight Glow Serum for you guys! I’ve been using this product this entire month, and I know a lot of you have been curious as to whether or not I liked it, so read on to find out!
Another month has flown by! May was a really good month for me. ALBOE turned 1, I got the chance to spend a lot of quality time with people and through keeping up with consistent workouts, I’ve been feeling myself getting stronger and seeing those baby gainzzzz come in! Of course, I’m still beginning, but wow, I’ve been feeling really good lately. I think it also has a lot to do with the nice weather. But anyways. Here are all the things I’ve been loving this month. You’ll notice this list is pretty random and all over the place tbh, but I think that makes monthly favourites posts really fun.
Hey hey! It’s that time of the month again. Hehe. Here’s a sneak peek into my bullet journal for the month of May. Still trying to keep it minimal, so like last month, I used one colour and a black pen. I finally got Pilot pens, so this month looks so crisp and nice. Such basic words used to describe how pleased I am, but you’ll understand once you see it. If you want to see the layouts I created from past months, then click here!
One of my favourite songs on Future’s HNDRXX is his song with The Weeknd, called Coming Out Strong. This MOTD was inspired by that song, in particular by my favourite line in the song that says “They said I couldn’t reach Mars, so I turned to a star”. When I think of turning into a literal star, I think of a lot of glow and brightness, and I thought it would be fun to translate that into a makeup look. I also got a bunch of new Colourpop shadows, so I really wanted to incorporate them into this look. I haven’t done a MOTD in a while, and it was fun to use new products, as well as products I already own, but don’t use on an everyday basis. Kind of challenging, but I am so pleased with how this look turned out. If you’re curious to see how the look turned out, hit that read more!
I think the most frustrating, yet rewarding part of doing my makeup is creating the perfect wing. Most days, I miraculously get it right on the first try, and other days I’m struggling for ten minutes before I give up and leave the house with janky eyeliner (which I don’t recommend lol NEVER give up on your eyeliner if you can help it). So I’ve compiled a bunch of tips and tricks that I use to help me create my wing the way I like, and maybe it’ll help you too!
WOW! My blog is already a year old! Can you believe it? I can’t. When I think back to a year ago, I honestly never would have thought ALBOE would be where it is today. I’m not saying that I’m huge and successful by any means, but I never would have imagined that I would be getting constant positive feedback from a lot of people, that I would have people who always keep up to date with my posts and that I would be able to write posts on behalf of other brands!
