New Year… New Blog?

Hi hello, I have sadly been neglecting this blog within the past few months and that is something that I would like to change, I guess we could call it one of my New Years goals.
I have a few posts that should be coming up soon from earlier this fall and a few new posts to be made, such as book hauls, new years goals list and a few other things. I also want to be able to post more of my outfit pictures so hopefully that will become a  regular thing.

So,  what I trying to say is please stay tuned because 2014 might be the year of the blog for me.

Sephora Haul – June 2013

Skincare Haul 

For a very long time I have been wanting to do an overhaul of my skincare, so I thought I would start off with a sample set of some REN products, an Origins cleanser and a fragrance free moisturizer. 
I have recently become obsessed with skin care after following blogs like Kate, Anna and Caroline  
I’m still very much new to the skincare world but I do however know that I have sensitive, acne-prone, dry and sometimes combination skin. But mostly, it is incredibly sensitive so I try to be careful with what I put on my skin and what is being put in my products. I hardly buy anything without looking at reviews first. 
I hope to be able to do reviews of these products, so far after two days there hasn’t been any negative reactions but it could still happen. I do plan on doing a skincare wish list as there is still so many things I want to try and get into, I am really into the idea of oils and serums. Let me know if you guys have any recommendations for skincare, haircare or beauty products!
