    Mid Month Update

    Hi, Hey, Hello! So let’s just get straight to it with this one shall we? It’s the middle of the month. It’s the middle of THE month. And so I guess an update is due. It’s Day 15, it is not looking great. I’m supposed to be at 25,000 words by this point. I think I can quite confidently say that I have not broken 5,000 words. This has been for a few reasons. One, I had to tidy up some shit from the 12,000 odd words I had already written and also familiarise myself with what I had already put down. Two, I have not yet properly planned this…

    Final 2018 Update

    Hi, Hey, Hello! Did I not just do one of these? Has it really been two months since the last one? Is this year really having the audacity to move this quickly. This is the last one of these for 2018 and that just kind of feels ridiculous. This year just started. How is it all downhill towards Christmas now? Anyway, now that I have slowly come to terms with the fact that this is in fact actually happening I guess I should just get on with the update now shouldn’t I? Oh also, yes there have been some culls. This is a shorter update than the ones before: 1)…

Because I stand by the fact that these product have changed my damn skin’s life. My skin was slowly becoming a bigger and bigger oil slick and had just somehow became worse that it was when I was a teenager and it needed to catch a break. Glossier did that.…

    Maui Moisture

    Hi, Hey, Hello! And we’re out of the letters, which means normal (whatever the hell that means to me anymore) service will be resumed. I’m starting the month with a little bit of a beauty chat for the next few days. Then there will be some writing updates (because what up NaNo Month). And then because it’s been a hot minute the book reviews will be coming thick and fast. For now though let me swing back into this post. Which is hair based. I had to emergency buy some new styling products because I couldn’t find the Shea Moisture curl enhancing smoothie and my Only Curls styling creme kept…

    Letters to Autumn 4

    Dear Autumn, It is very easy for me to forget sometimes that I am a creature of habit. Don’t get me wrong a lot of the time I am very aware of it. You can swear by my food order in a lot of places (seriously, this one place that I go to lunch a lot at work I don’t even have to say anything. I just make small talk and pay while my lunch is already in the motion of being made), but there are some ways where I forget just how habitual I am. I say this because I’m currently not at work. I’m not even out of…
