The Slow Comeback

Sixteen months ago I embarked on an adventure overseas with two friends and haven’t looked back. Call it the Eat Pray Love moment of my life but it was a necessary step I needed to take in order to refresh myself. It was time to start a new chapter. I wanted adventure. I wanted freedom. I wanted to live more. As I traveled through New Zealand and then settled in Australia, my cyber life was put on hold. Blogging took a backseat. My social media posts became few and far between.

Beauty Philosophy

Welcome to my first official post! There were so many different ways that I wanted to start this blog. But in the end I thought no better way than to start with a ‘foundation’ type of post. One to sort of explain how my views on skincare, green beauty, and worldly influences. I’d like to think that as I become older I grow wiser. Learning from daily mistakes and improving myself is essential in my personal growth. So here are a few beauty rules that I try to abide by. What are some of your beauty philosophies? You are imperfect; inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful.                                                                    -Amy Bloom Acceptance Knowing and accepting your skin are two completely different things. I’ve known my skin type for a long time. I tried to believe that my body and skin would eventually even out and …
