As you can see from my archive list, I have been blogging since 2010- so around 7 years now. I didn't really have a direction then with what I wanted this blog to focus on, and to be honest, the last 7 years have been just a mish mash of posts from fashion, beauty and recently, motherhood.
Having turned 30 this year, I really feel like I have a better understanding on who I am, and what I would like to share with my audience. In am very passionate about the makeup industry, being a freelance makeup artist, as well as a strong interest in fashion and trends. My life in general also revolves around my faith as a Christian, and also as a mother to a toddler. The thing that tends to drive me in most of those areas however, is finding affordable ways to live and indulge.
I blame this bargain hunting thrill on my mother. She would always sniff out a sale and proudly show off her incredible discounts, and this rubbed off on me in a major way.
I love to find affordable alternatives to almost anything. So whether it be finding cheaper dupes for higher end makeup products or shopping in thrift stores for clothing items; to me living in an affordable way allows our family to allocate our budget to other areas in our life such as eating out or going on holidays,
Do I sacrifice by shopping "cheaper" or more thrifty? Defintely not - and that's what I want to share with you on this blog.
So come along for the ride and join in the conversation!!
