FOTD: NYX Walkyrie
Hi! I’m just popping in to say hello! I’m sharing these ancient FOTD pictures as an excuse to get a post up on my blog. Seriously, these are a year old. I don’t even look like that anymore. (Should I even be admitting that?) I don’t even recall which products I wore on my face other than the NYX Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Walkyrie. (A safe guess would be that I’m wearing NARS Sheer Glow in Punjab and Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade, but don’t quote me on that.)
The purpose of this post is that I wanted to put out an update to say that, yes, I’m still working on getting this blog back on track. In case you missed it, I lost my job and had to give up my apartment during November of last year (2017) as a result of Hurricane María. I ended up moving to Boston to start over. And, needless to say, packing up and leaving so suddenly led to a lot of chaos in my life. I’ve tried to blog during the past few months as much as I could. A lot has happened. Between moving, searching for work, working two jobs to save up enough money to rent an apartment, and adjusting to a new life, blogging took an understandable backseat.
Plus, I did not have a personal computer of my own to work in. When I published my GoFundMe almost a year ago, I mentioned that I wanted to use some of the money I raised to buy a laptop so I could do freelance work. However, it took me a few months to get a job so I ended up using what was left over from that money for necessities– transportation and food.
There are good news, I swear! After leaving a job that was an HR manager’s nightmare, I am now working in an incredibly healthy and positive work environment doing something I love. Also, I recently got my own laptop. Yay! Not having my own computer was one of the biggest hurdles in getting my blog back on track.
Finally, please excuse the blog’s messed up appearance. I’ve been wanting to migrate my blog from Blogger to WordPress for years. And I finally did it! (To clarify: I didn’t do it myself, I paid someone to do it for me.) Again, because of everything that has been going on, I still haven’t finished fixing all the kinks and customizing the new look.
As a result of the move, I realize my blog is not showing up on certain listings and many of my old readers are not getting notifications when I publish a new post. I’m working on fixing that as well.
I will write a lengthier update once I officially relaunch the blog. Because I do have a lot to say about everything that has happened in the past year.
Thank you for your patience and support throughout the years! Currently, while I work on fixing up the blog and creating new content, I’ll be most active on Twitter. 🙂
