You probably wonder why I call you, my audience, “Wonderlanders”. Well, I’ll admit it’s a bit of a mouthful to say, and maybe not all that original. My blog and site is called “Allys in Wonderland” and I wanted to emphasize a philosophy of “looking at the world through eyes of wonder” for myself, and since you are reading my blog, I interpret it as you are taking a journey alongside me and living in our world of wonder. Yes, I know, that sentence was even worse with the number of times wonder and its variations show up. I apologize.
While I want to write uplifting things and convey it in the things I present and share, it does not always match my current frame of mind. This week has been a bit rough. I’m back at home for the holidays and my mom and I have been incessantly arguing on and off over family matters and my brother and my concerns over her and her health and triggers for me are going off left and right. What’s helped to keep me sane is writing and thinking of what I want to write for you guys and also obsessing over planners. More about planners will be coming soon. I want to reiterate my appreciation for you taking the time to stop and peruse my blog. It gives me motivation to keep on going and to write even when I’m super tired.
On another note…
Back in October, I spent almost $400 on new beauty products because I had been using the same make-up brushes and set since sophomore year of high school. Talk about a health hazard! It wasn’t on that many items, mainly more expensive items that I decided to invest my money into in hopes that I wouldn’t have horrendous breakouts or a badly pigmented face. I figured if it was something that helped me with my “loving me more” goal, I should really learn to use the stuff I bought, so I did a Make-Up week Challenge with my friend Vicky. Needless to say, we survived most of it…we may have skipped a day or two… But I’ll be sharing some of those stories in future posts.
That’s it for tonight!
