So… Hi! Remember me? It’s been a while since I’ve posted on the blog (bad Karima) so I thought I’d pop in to let you know what’s going on in my life right now. The not-so-dramatic reason for my hiatus – I’ve been insanely busy with uni.
I want to preface this next bit with this: I love uni. I’ve been studying for 7 years and I love it. That said, I would liken the last few semesters to extracting my own teeth with a pair of pliers, sans anaesthetic. I’m on the home stretch now and I’M JUST TIRED, pair that with Youtube-ing and I’m jumping from lipstick to calculators and back again. But don’t listen to me, go to school kids.
I’m also a perfectionist, which I know sounds like a humble-brag reserved for job interviews but it’s not been a constructive trait. It goes like this…
Oh I’ll post a picture of this palette on the blog. I should probably add some swatches… but you gotta see how it looks on the eye, too? Maybe three looks? Comparison swatches?
And suddenly it’s a damn novel that takes a month to create. Typical. So I guess my question is: Do you want to see more frequent posts of the shorter variety? Quick blurbs of new products I’ve received? Does anyone read this blog anymore? LOL.
Aside from debilitating perfectionism, life is amazing. Without a doubt, I am happier now than I have ever been – primarily because of you. Your support is the reason that I can do what I love everyday and I’m forever grateful. So yeah, I just wanted to reassure you that I haven’t forgotten the blog and it is a priority. I feel a special connection with you guys because this was my first platform and I’ve always felt as though I could get personal here.
When I say ‘let’s chat in the comments‘, I genuinely want to chat! What’s going on in your life at the moment? Any makeup revelations? Yes, I still respond to every comment on the blog because I’m so happy that you’re here!
