2014 Beauty Faves

It’s always tricky to narrow my beauty favorites into a top 10 list but I welcome the challenge.  The process of choosing 10 products really makes me think about and evaluate all the products I have used in the past year.  While looking through my beauty box, I soon realize that this year I really didn’t try a lot of new trendy products – this year it was all about quality not quantity.  Some of these items were on ‘must try’ lists of beauty products, but for the most part in 2014, I tried different products regardless of whether the product was on the so called ‘must have’ list or not for 2014.  Enjoy my little list – it’s a good one 🙂

Back to Blogging

Okay….I have to admit it…. I am a seasonal blogger.  My last blog post was in the summer of 2014 – yes – 6 months ago.  Were you counting?  I hope not.  In the blogging world that amount of time without a post is death by ‘not’ posting – if you don’t blog your readers have nothing to entertain them and off they go to get their fix somewhere else.  I know this, yet I find that our life gets a little busy with the arrival of the much anticipated warm weather in the summer which rolls into back to school and all the Mini’s activities which then rolls us right into the Christmas season and then uh-oh, I feel a little blogging guilt.

Over the Christmas holidays I have to say I was re-inspired by all my fellow bloggers out there who (unlike myself it seems) blog all year round.  Imagine that?!  Our family spent the Christmas holidays at home – while the Mini’s enjoyed their new Christmas treats, Mr. Modern and I stayed in our sweats, enjoyed our coffee, ate too much chocolate and caught up on a little relaxation and reading.  For me, this meant that I had the chance to re-visit my WordPress and Bloglovin feeds to finally catch up with all the fabulous, funny and insightful posts that were waiting for me.  What a treat.

Now that January has arrived I feel the ‘seasonal’ blogging bug biting me again.  Why now?  Well, the weather in Edmonton for the next 3-4 months is definitely nothing to blog about  (unless you want to hear me cry about how cold and snowy it is here for too many months to count), the Mini’s are back in school, and I have a little creative energy that needs an outlet.  I am now ready to ramble on…

So I will start the new year with this little question

The Year Is Yours

and we will see where it takes me.
