After a long absence


I'm back

I know it’s been over a year since I last posted and I feel I need to explain myself. The major reason behind my absence was several conflicts I had, which are somewhat resolved – at least for the present. During my absence, I continued to read blogs, but I kept a low profile. I never stopped enjoying what I read and I missed the blogging community. I’m really excited about a recent haul, and that has given the final push for me to come back to the blogosphere.

A little background on what has happened in the interim:

  1. I am no longer subscribed to any beauty boxes.
  2. I have moved back home, where it is impossible to find good lighting to take pictures. This was another reason why I stopped blogging – none of the pictures were true to colour and my room is darker as a windowless room. Incandescent desk lamps do not do justice to most of the things I want to take pictures of.
  3. I have gained a few pounds since moving back home, where my parents insisted I look too skinny and frail. I now have less control over what I eat. *shakes fist*
  4. I highlighted my hair red, the highlights have faded bronze and grown out, and I’ve grown out my bangs.
  5. I still love shopping, as much as I ever did.
  6. I love the new Pokemon X game. You can go shopping for outfits for yourself. How awesome is that?

So, my first order of business is to update some of my posts – it seems that the world has changed drastically over the past year. Then I can get started on that haul post. I can’t wait!

    • Whitney! I’ve been reading your blog, I see you’ve moved it from Wands and Pliers to Macarons and Mischief. I liked Wands and Pliers, I think it really reflected your personality 🙂 I can’t comment on your new blog though, are you using a different platform or something?
