• Hi. I’ve not been around I know. And I’ve had a few messages asking if I’m ok. All is very well but I’ve been focusing on me and my own personal growth. With this I have made the decision to take a break from my blog. It may be temporary or it may be forever. At this point I am unsure. I’ve made some major changes in my life that have brought me to a very different place. My passions have changed. I may be back with a different angle in the future but for now I need to take stock and evaluate what fits with me. My priorities have shifted. .
I have met some lovely people but have also experienced traits I dislike within this community, all is not always as it seems and in hindsight I wish I’d called a few more people out on their behaviour. .
Thank you to all my followers that have stuck around and truly engaged with my content. If you’d like to learn about the real me then you can catch me over on @louxlou1981 I’d love for some of the lovely people I have met to stay in contact. For now I will no longer be posting on this account. My blog will stay published. I will be back I am sure but in what capacity remains to be seen. Lots of love and good vibes only. Lou xx
  • I kinda like this eye look. This cool toned smokey eye was done using the @bhcosmetics desert oasis palette, which is also #crueltyfree 👌
.
It was nice to play with some makeup rather than all the adulting I’ve been doing lately. 🙋‍♀️
.
What do you think?

  • Have you ever wondered how you can have nail extensions without damaging your nails? Me too and I’ve finally found how!
.
Ever had your nails done to wake up the next day and they throb with pain? Me too! I used to get this all the time with acrylic extensions and the amount of damage they caused to my nails I decided was just not worth it. However, I’ve found a system that’s not only breathable for the nail plate but also contains vitamin A and E to nourish the natural nail. The system is also 100% #vegan
.
I’ll be sharing a full blog review on the system, my experience and the end result shortly.. but what I will say is I won’t be going back to acrylics. .
Thanks to @the_natural_beauty_lounge  and the lovely Arliah for creating a beautiful set of natural looking damage free extensions for me.
