June 2018 in Review

Happy Saturday!!

I know, I know.. I don’t post on weekends anymore and I’m currently on a road trip across Oregon to pick up my mom and sis.. BUT I felt like I needed this post to get out before the month starts because I have other content I want to publish this upcoming week.

Those of you who have been following me for a long time know how this post usually goes. To my new followers, feel free to browse each category and click on any blog post link you might be interested in reading. No pressure to read ALL of my posts this month. This is for those of you who are loyal readers who might have missed something. 🙂

P.S. ILY ALL! ❤

Photography — May Instagram Beauty Challenge: #SpringIntoSummer2018

Always Cleia & Super Nova Beauty hosted an IG beauty challenge and I just HAD to take part in it. My photography has improved a bit and I’m proud of that. I also love how my Instagram feed looks now. 🙂

Collabs:

I do need to address  the Palette BINGO collab:

Naomi decided that she needed a break from blogging, so she’s quitting for a while. Since it was such short notice I didn’t get to inform you guys about it last month and I’m still debating on whether it would be too much work to keep going by myself. But, I do enjoy creating looks with random shades so I may end up continuing that little project on my own and just re-starting it or renaming it since it’s no longer a collab.

Blogger’s Spotlight:

I have been reading your blog posts and I didn’t come across very many this month that I totally wanted to share.. So I’m starting to think that I want to broaden this specific section because I also feel like it serves as a shout-out / exposure for those who get featured. I don’t know. I’m open  to ideas. 🙂

  1. Various posts from Ingrid Madison AveThey’re all so very informative! 🙂
  2. Which Maybelline Mascara Is Made For You?| Maybelline Mascara Review by Ruth from Learning BeautIt was just so nicely laid out. She included reviews for each mascara and which one would suit you best based on what you’re looking for.
  3. Frozen Strawberry Cream Pie by Diane from In Diane’s KitchenI’m a new follower of hers but she posts so many recipes and they all look so good and I love that she includes the difficulty for each. 🙂 This one looks like it’s pretty easy to make and super delicious. 🙂
  4. How To Plan A Month Of Instagram Content | Hashtag Library by Sarah from https://vintagetearose.co.uk/ — She has so many good tips and I will be sure to use a few of them because currently I suck at IG 😀

Which post(s) was/were your favorite(s) this month?!

    I really enjoy Palette Bingo! It’d be fun if you brought it back to life & made it your own. 🙂
    Did you end up canceling your Play box or are you still working on the June unboxing?! I was actually really happy with my products this month but I haven’t gotten around to trying any of ’em yet!
    Lol we have to the opposite problem with the “bloggers spotlight” section. I find so many posts that I love and want to share that I’m going to do a whole separate post from now on lol.

      Thank you! I’m still thinking I want to bring it back, but I need to change it up a bit or maybe change an element or two to really make it my own lol.
      And no, I didn’t cancel it, I just didn’t have enough time to post it before this week. I put it up yesterday.
      Hahaha well that’s great! Definitely do that, it’s an amazing way to give back 😃
