So as you can see…

There are too many amazing products that I’ve been dying to tell you about!!

Instead, I’ve allowed this task to turn into a daunting pile in my bedroom and bathroom.

And now it’s spilled into other crooks, crannies and surfaces of my life.

But I’ve decided to finally do something about this.

I’m gonna bust through this writer’s block and get my blogging mojo back!

The same excitement and passion that I used to always get whenever I would even just THINK about BEAUTY? I can actually feel myself getting it back again.

So expect some fresh new beauty writings and reviews in the days to come.

Maybe even another impromptu beauty video. Who knows? 😀

Baby steps first!


Hm, okay well…

Though I am inclined to agree with Confucius… I am also of the opinion that you gotta “strike while the iron’s hot” and “catch the giant waves before they break!”

So here we go!



* First Photo: All the products were gifted to me during the SF iFabbo Social Media Conference (which I STILL have to write about btw). BIG thanks to the SF iFabbo 2013 organizers & sponsors. Most were full-size!

** Second Photo: All the products were personally purchased by me, with the exception of the 3 Dermalogica products which were generously sent to me by the folks of Dermalogica.

    Wow, that is a great stash, but I’m kind of embarrassed to say that it is smaller then my stash! I think having beauty products in every nook and cranny is just the way it is for beauty bloggers!!! I look forward to reading all your reviews.

    1. Kareen

      I believe it! You must have a pretty killer beauty products stash. In my case, I was alarmed at the rate of how many products I’ve amassed compared to how often I’ve been writing about them. I’m impressed with how consistent you are at writing product reviews, Jo. I need to take some tips from you.

    1. Kareen

      Even if you don’t write everyday on your blog, it’s okay because the quality of your content is stellar! Also, this is probably the closest thing to a “beauty haul” that I’ll ever write on this blog, haha.

    Wow! Very generous of the iFabbo folks, but guess what? I’m more interested in photo two. Lots of lovely skin care in there! I know what you mean about blogging mojo. Mine goes up and down and I don’t worry about it.

      Hey Ali! While the contents of the iFabbo gift bag were amazing, I’m sooo glad your eye is on photo two! We are definitely on the same wavelength, sister! Did ya notice a recurring theme with the micellar waters? Lol. As for being a good blogger, I would say you do a great job of keeping up your blog regularly.

    Ohhhhh! I’m so giddy with excitement! I really must come over to San Fran. so we can have massive beauty sessions together! =)

    I spot the Becca Brush! PLEASE do a review on it. I can’t wait to see what your thoughts are of this ‘have-to-have’ brush right now.

    1. Kareen

      Note taken, Sun! I will do a review on the Becca Brush! It’s really fantastic! And yes, omg, it would be sooo nice to spend some time catching up together obsessing about our love for beauty and makeup–either here in SF or over there in Australia! I know it will happen 😀
