I bought these some time last spring out of curiosity to try a new brand and because each palette had a couple of shades that seemed like things I didn’t already have. Specifically, Venom, Alchemy 2.0, and Bucolic Baby were the shades that caught my eye from Wild Berry. Metropolitan didn’t call to me as much but in that one, Nothing Personal, and Alaska were the shades I thought would be unique to my collection. In this post I included comparison swatches for those shades in an effort to see if they were actually things I didn’t already have.
I’m starting what will probably be a long process of decluttering. I’ve been thinking of doing this for over a month now and haven’t made much progress because it can get overwhelming and can be difficult to make decisions. To start, I set aside items that I’m considering getting rid of. This is what is in the four boxes that are sitting in front of my cabinets. I think it can help to do this if you have the space to store stuff temporarily.
Can’t believe January is already behind me, considering how slow each day felt individually. I spent the first third of the month lost in a mix of seasonal depression and the fallout of my breakup, and I didn’t do much of anything that I would normally think of as productive. Around January 10th, I decided that I needed to find a “real” job ASAP and spent the next couple of weeks entirely focused on that. I found one and I start in a few days. It’s temporary but at least it’s something.
You may see that I haven’t updated the blog in a while. My life is a mess right now. Messier than it has ever been. I just got out of a 15 year relationship and moved into my parents basement. I don’t have any of the stuff I normally do to create beauty content so I’m trying to think of other things I can post in the meantime.
