I'm back! ... kind of ...
Feels so strange to type something on the blogger editor again...
I hope everybody has done well. I'm so thankful and am absolutely blown away by your support! I can't even believe that this blog still gets regular visits and new readers after all this time.
My hiatus ended up being over 3 months, I guess that's quite an era in the blogosphere.
As I have told you in my last posting, I lost interest in make up and making up sometime by the end of last year, which was partly the reason for me wanting a break. I think my product turn-over was much too fast so I couldn't even find some time to enjoy them.
Other than that I went through a very hard time emotionally because obstacles occured in my family which lead me having to shoulder responsibilities that I never had before (not the divorce kind of problems), I also needed to delay my final exams for one semester. At this time most dark clouds have gone away and I can see the day again.
Make-up-wise I went through some phases to get back to my blogger mojo in the last months, I had a month or so when I didn't even buy one thing make-up-related (which is most uncommon for me ;)) parallel to a (fruitless) period of "using up/sort of project 10 pan" - until I realized that it's just pointless for me to dictate myself to use up products I don't absolutely love while the money is already spent and the damage is already done and the nicer products are waiting in the drawers.
Well, after that I went through a serious skin care phase, Japanese and Korean skin care, that is. Succeeding it with a nice skin, I proceeded into a Korean make up phase with a new favourite: the ulzzang no-make-up-make-up. This closed the cycle and sparked my love for make up again, and I went back to be the make-up-aficionado I formerly was. I watched amazing videos and read super inspiring blogs, I played with lovely products, tried different techniques and enjoyed it so so much! Sometimes playing with make up is much more fun and relaxing if you're just doing it for yourself, without the "blogger-thought" of how a certain product would work on others etc.
Many many times I wanted to come back to rave about a recent find, share a special tip or trick, but by that time I already was wholly consumed by the preparations for the final exams again.
So last week the first, written, part of it finally ended (for me the hardest part due to the many times irrelevant contents and tricky questions) - and it went well. I still have to face the oral examinations by the begin of June, but I am quite relaxed and I trust my abilities as a physician.
But still, I have to revise a lot, so I'm just ...kinda...-back. But I'm too enthusiastic to stay away any longer, too ;)
Please await a GINORMOUS haul very soon. I have got a LOT of ... everything. Legit.
The beforementioned topics will be covered soon when time comes.
For now, it's just a not-so-quick "Hello!" and a big "Thank you!".
