I have a couple of eyeshadow palettes that I don’t use out of laziness. I say that I’m going to use them for special occasions but the reality of it is that those special occasions only come around like once a quarter. For that reason, I decided that this was the year that I would wear eyeshadow to work and I would rotate between the palettes that I have.
This month I decided to use Maybelline’s The City Mini Palette in Hi-Rise Sunset. I picked this up a couple of weeks ago (unbagging coming at some point) from Walgreens. I thought it was perfect for my preferred work eyelook – one color. It was also right up my alley in terms of color so I purchased it knowing that I really didn’t need any more palettes. My justification was that I was keeping up with my goal!
I’ve shared a 2021 recap that features some random moments of the year. Going back in my camera roll looking for pictures to include was like reliving all the good and bad moments that I experienced. It also gave me a chance to reflect on the current state of my life.
The last couple of months have been taxing on my mental health. This year I decided that I will just do things for myself. I’m not one for New Year’s Resolutions but this year I decided to give it a try.
In the first week of the year I have started to develop a routine that will allow me to stick to my goals. I’m not one to share my goals when it comes to doing new things but the couple of times I’ve mentioned new ideas, I’ve realized that some people just don’t get it. In the past, the opinions of others would deter me from trying new things but now I don’t care. I’m doing things for me. It is my solo adventure.
