I just realised that I missed my blogaversary last year! But on the actual day, (august 18th) I was in Osaka buying records and going to cool vintage shops, so I was living my best life ;)

This past year or so has been a bit of a quiet one on the blog because I was at work and it's sometimes been a bit soul destroying and I kind of forgot how nice it is to be creative...

I love blogging- it's so nice to have your own little space on the internet with no stress about algorithms, likes etc. that comes with instagram or Youtube.
And yet, I really let it slip last year- here is a graph of numbers of posts/ year that I created bc I was procrastinating...

Don't get me wrong, I am fairly pleased with the stuff I did post- there just wasn't quiiite enough there! But without further ado, here are a couple of my favourite posts from year 7 (August 2018- July 2019) and 8 (September 2019- July 2020)of blogging!

Also a couple of more serious blog posts: 
a picture of blue sky and an electricity pylon with the words Black Lives Matter

I know me saying this on my little blog won't change the world, but I didn't want to *not* talk about it as it's so important. There are many super amazing resources on this though, so rather than reading my blog post, allow me to direct you to Black Lives Matter.

My makeup collection

But although I haven't been posting that much, I was taking looots of photos, so I have lots of juicy Japan content to come <3

My new job is in London, and I'm allowed to keep having my bleached hair, so look forward to more hair dye reviews too!

I also have sooo many photos I took in Japan, so I'll keep slowly posting those too :)

Thanks for reading, stay safe lads!!
