I don’t know about you, but I'm feeling…twenty three? What a weird age to reach. I'm slowly approaching the dreaded quarter life crisis, yet I still look younger than most eighteen year olds. I used to equate age with various goals or life events. When I was a child, all of us girls would discuss our futures and how we would all be engaged by twenty five or twenty six and life would be magical because we would have our careers and future all planned out. For a lack of better expression… LOL. If anything this past year has taught me the complete opposite. My whole year of being twenty two has been anything but planned. There were some highlights like graduating from university, travelling, getting my new dog, etc. but if I really think about it there wasn’t anything substantial that changed in my life. What twenty two did bring were life lessons and a whole bunch of growth. Learning from my previous mistakes and choices pushed me to make major life decisions that I never imagined for myself. This post isn’t a scream for help or an existential crisis. If anything what I wanted to share with you were the lessons I have learned over the past 12 months of being twenty two.

My day to day beauty regimen is extremely minimal. No makeup, hair up in a messy bun, and my nails are most likely chipped. My daily schedule involves early mornings where I edit and work on blog posts followed by afternoon and evening training sessions for dance. Most days there isn't much time throughout the day to apply makeup to then only take it off after a hour or so (as I don’t like wearing makeup when I train or practice). When I do decide to get my glam on, my current beauty routine is extremely simple and basic. Since I spend most of my weekends dancing at competitions, I try not to wear heavy amounts of makeup in my everyday life. Currently the weather has been a mixture of sticky humidity or rain which leaves my makeup and hair looking like a mess after a few hours. Overall, I really haven’t played around with much makeup in the past few months, BUT I have found some of my favourite products that are on their way to becoming holy grail finds.
