I’ve been procrastinating on finishing off this entry since it will be my closure post. But, enough delay – it has to be done. This is going to be a rather self-indulgent post…
Initially I wasn’t planning on doing a post like this to conclude the blog, but your comments when I made my announcement mentioned that I should be proud of my achievements. And you know what? I am proud of what I’ve created! Let’s celebrate it. ⭐
I’ve had this post brewing for a least a year – originally it was titled “Blogging Etiquette” but what do I know about manners? 😛 I suppose it can be viewed as passive aggressive to post this now, as I am departing from the world of blogging. At the very least, I hope this will get you to think about blogging practices, and how it affects other people.
Let’s get the Don’ts out of the way first. Warning: I swear in this post. 😇
I will truly be unplugged so I won’t be updating the blog or posting social media for the duration of my trip. But I’ll be sure to share my experiences and photos once I’m back at the end of the month.
I saw this on Chanelle’s blog and I thought it was such a great idea that I decided to give it a whirl! This is quite a departure for me since it’s mostly non-beauty related discussion… here’s a glimpse into my everyday life. 🙂
Mon Aug 1 – Civic Holiday so a day off from work! I met with my friend from Newfoundland for lunch.
Wed Aug 3 – I had 5 meetings that spanned 7 hours, leaving me with 1 hour to do actual work – but the Happiness Highlight is that I got to eat my sushi lunch during a conference call.
Thurs Aug 4 – I got to pet 2 puppies in 2 separate puppy encounters. One was a French Bulldog, and the other was a poodle type and both tried to play with me by nipping at my hand with their sharp little teeth! 😛
Fri Aug 5 – went to MAC over lunch with coworker and she treated me to some eye shadows!
Sat Aug 6 – watched the new Jason Bourne movie, which was enjoyable (although the first one is still the best).
After a week of negative reviews, I thought for today I’d post something positive! 😉
I was nominated for the Miranda Sings Award by the lovely Kristy of HippyLip – if you’re not following her, you really should! Thanks for the nod. 🙂
• Announce your nomination with a post, including a link to the blogger who nominated you
• Include the featured image on your blog
• List seven things you love about yourself (e.g. your appearance, personality, achievements, etc.), but don’t use negative comparisons!
• Nominate ten other blogs and link the nominees in your post
Something different today instead of a review – I haven’t done a Tag in ages. I saw this on The Makeup Case and had to do my own spin on it. 😉
What is your middle name?
Hoarder. Stash Hoarder Matters is my name, don’t wear it out! 😛
What was your favorite subject in school?
In high school I really loved Industrial Arts or erm it used to be called “Shop” class. I made a wooden bowl on the lathe, and a wooden piggy bank. It was an awesome class!
What is your favorite drink? Source.
I’ve answered this before elsewhere so I’ll name another one I like: Jack fruit shake. I get this from our local Vietnamese restaurant and it is so refreshing. It tastes kind of like Neapolitan ice cream but lighter.
What is your favorite song at the moment?
I’ve had “Follow You Follow Me” in my head for a few weeks ever since I saw the animated short “Lily & the Snowman” from Cineplex!
