2016 Reflections and Goals for 2017 – Blog Stats, Social Media & Life

Happy New Year bellas, I know it has been a really long time since I posted so welcome back and I hope you’re doing well. I though I’d start off this year with a summary of how 2016 went and also what I have set for myself to achieve in the months to come. This post is gonna be a super long one so grab a drink, get comfy and tuck in. I’ve been reading a lot of reflection posts over the last couple of days and I’ve seen many people label 2016 as being a bad year. In some…

How I wash my Makeup Brushes

Surprisingly, this is one of the questions I get asked quite a lot. I’d have given you a different answer depending on when you asked. I decided to finally tackle this blog post because I have been using these products weekly and I don’t see myself changing it anytime soon. For most of you, like myself, cleaning makeup brushes is a laborious and tedious task. As much as I would rather be spending time with my kids or catching up on series, I know it needs to be done. I store my brushes upright in a brush holder and because it has no…
