A blog/life update

Sometimes things get a little demanding around here. I have a full time job (that I fortunately love) that I give the bulk of my attention to, but I’m very grateful that it’s a flexible one and only about 50% needs to be done during business hours should I have other things that beg for attention. Which is why I can keep both up! I thought I’d update you on what’s going on around these parts lately.

I’ve been working on a collaboration with Red Square which I’ve enjoyed so very much, but it had to happen from start to finish within less than a week, so I was crunching like it’s nobody’s business. There’s a R1000 Red Square voucher up for grabs and time to enter is running out – see it here on their pageΒ and find my blog post and video here.

Aside from the usual things I’m trying to get my Youtube channel off the ground – things are a little slow in that department but I’m trying not to get impatient. My last two videos are my beauty/tv/music favourites for the month of November and the other is a fun tag video all about what I get up to when it’s me-time. If you have any suggestions/recommendations/feedback I’d love to hear it.

Also, in MOST exciting news I’m 90% done (ok, my tech guy is 90% done) with a blog redesign. When the current design launched I thought it was the best thing that has ever happened to me, but lately since I know there’s something new in the works I can barely look at it without cringing. Funny how that works. I’ve had quite a few readers saying the display on mobile is a bit kak – fear not, the new design is 100% responsive and works well on all platforms. I’m hoping I can launch the new design before the end of the year. Fingers crossed!

Lastly, I’m branching out ever so slightly to include other topics over here. I’ll still firmly remain mostly a beauty blog, but I’ve figured if I like reading about other topics, you probably do too. So expect little bits of decor/pretty things, some gadgety things, and I might even go crazy and include some fashion bits too. First up is a 4-part tablet review that kicks off tomorrow. Spoiler alert: You can win one for yourself too. Details to follow πŸ™‚
