    Beauty Hacks For Busy People

    It’s not always possible to look your best. Be it because of late working hours; juggling family, kids, home and work; lack of sleep or eating well; stress or just a simple lack of time. But we all like to look good (which automatically makes us feel better too) and well-presented, be it at the office or now, in Covid times, on a zoom call! Here are a few hacks and tips to cover up the late nights and tiring days and look like a million bucks (even if you’ve slept for just five hours last night).

    Bye (For Now!)

    My move to self-hosted is going to start soon so I don’t know when I’ll post next but I will post as soon as possible. I may take a few days off to just chill and take a break from blogging since it’s my mid-term break next week anyway. And I feel like I need a mental health break after everything that has happened with WP over the last few days. I also want to take some time to customize my blog after the move and just get everything perfect before I start posting again. I also have some SEO stuff I need to work on. BUT I have so…

    What Self-Hosting Means For You

    Self-Hosting And How This Will Effect You I just wanted to confirm that I will be self-hosting from here onwards. I contacted WP on multiple occasions asking them to unblock me but they completely ignored me and encouraged me to leave so that’s exactly what I will be doing. To be honest I no longer want to be on a platform that does not really care about its users. Here’s a great article on the basics of self-hosting: https://ellesunpopularopinions.com/the-basics-of-understanding-self-hosting/ I have received multiple emails and messages about the situation and what it will mean for my audience/followers. That’s why I wanted to post this as soon as possible to explain…

    E.L.F "Bitter" Lipliner Pencil Review

    The “Bitter” Lipliner Pencil E.L.F is a vegan and cruelty free makeup brand- all their products are vegan and cruelty-free. They are also quite affordable and tend to be very good quality for the price. The lipliner that I tried out in the shade Bitter is no longer available on the E.L.F Cosmetics official page but can be found on Amazon and other sites. I bought it quite a while back but hadn’t tried it till a few months ago. Pros The first pro for me was that E.L.F is vegan and cruelty free- I am trying to only buy cruelty free products at the moment and I love shopping…

    Fitting Necessary Appointments Into Your Schedule

    Edit: I’ve decided to start posting regularly again and I wanted to post about something totally random because I am kind of sick of thinking about WP lol. Thank you for your support and understanding and I hope you enjoy this post! Most of us live pretty busy lives.

    I'm Done With WordPress

    If you read yesterdays post you probably know that I was having trouble with my WordPress site. I was not surprised because that happens quite often because WordPress does have quite a few bugs it needs to work on. The problem was that I was not able to like or follow other blogs/posts. I contacted the Happiness Engineers and although they were very nice they were not able to fix the problem and I was told the team was working on it. I was busy yesterday so I just hoped for the best and moved on. Today I did a bit more research and from other peoples experience it says…

    How Healthy Is Our Soul?

    By Yemi Most people say I want change, but it does not resonate with their souls. You may be beautiful and physically fit on the outside, yet your soul may be broken and very fragile. If your external appearance is extremely attractive but your soul is weak you may not always be strong enough to resist the seducer who comes only to deceive. To generate successful change, we have to be holistically whole. This means being whole in mind, body, and soul. I am focusing on the strength of your Soul in this article as this sets the foundation for the other elements of mind and body. Do you believe…
