My Current Tattoos & Future Plans

I love tattoos. I love the way we can cover ourselves in art, in whatever way we choose to and how much confidence they can bring. I personally only have four tattoos, but I plan to get many more.

I'm Feeling a Little Lost, Lately

I've been lacking motivation lately. I've been wanting to write this post for about two weeks now but I just haven't had the energy for it. As I touched upon in my Self Care post, I've not been feeling my best. Although, the same week I published that post, I made a point of trying to utilise everything I listed and by the end of the week, I felt incredible. Unfortunately, that didn't last.

But First, Lipstick | Arbonne Smoothed Over Lipstick Review

I don't have many lipsticks. I didn't really start to wear lipstick regularly until I was about 20, and I bought my first nude that soon became my favourite. I soon became a lipstick fiend and when my sister became a Younique rep, I bought a whole bunch of fun lip colours from her.

What Self Care Looks Like to Me

I have been feeling pretty miserable lately. I thrive on having some alone time and, as a single mother, I obviously don't get very much of that at all. There's always lots I need or want to do, and not being able to do these things really affects my mental state.

July Round Up & August Goals

July was very much up-and-down for me. I wasn't very happy a lot of the time, with some very good times inbetween. I didn't get much done, I certainly never got to create my habit trackers in my bullet journal, Gail came to stay for a week and my baby turned one. SOB!
