Drugstore Haul + Mini-Reviews

Let's Get Personal: My Writing Process Tour

This is way out of topic of what this beauty blog site is about, but I thought a break from all the beauty reviews and all beauty posts would be good, don't you think? Plus I have been invited to share with you all: 
"My Writing Process Tour" 
This is basically sharing with you how my blog-writing process is. 
By the way, I am no professional journalist or an award-winning writer (*I would like to think that way every time I am typing away on my laptop though!). This is just another tag post that my fellow beauty blogger have tagged me to do, for us to share each others writing ways and hopefully get some tips as well on how we all write for our blog.
Let's start with how my desk looks. Once I sit down to get on my laptop, Wins loves to get in between my laptop and I, and lay down on my notes that I needed to blog for that day. There's not enough space for him to stretch out to sleep, so after a few minutes of some rub, he will go find a better spot in the room and totally pass out there for the rest of the day.

4 Seasons of Fashion: Maxi Dresses

I used to avoid buying maxi dresses because I thought it would just make me look shorter than I am now. I don't have a petite frame either (big hips, love it!) and I thought it would just make me look bigger. I tried it on one day, and fell in-love with how comfy it is, and how cute I actually look in it! I seriously would wear this all year so here's a few ways how I'd style it for the different seasons!
