Dec 222017

Hello greenies! This is the last discounts and free organic beauty post of the year 2017! Quite unbelievable how this year has gone by! Time is what has been one big tricky thingy for me in the past 2 years… It’s been flying by with me not having a clue what’s going on, I’ve been in a dire need of more time… while always having a feeling like I’m running out of time…

This will be the second Christmas without her. It’s gonna be difficult, it’s gonna be full of memories and tears, but I am certain, as painful as it will be, it won’t be as devastating as the one last year was. It can’t be. This Christmas, I will try my best to bake the cake we always baked together for Christmas, and even though she taught me how to make it, no one could ever do it as best as she could. On one hand, it’s been so long ago, on the other – it’s like it was yesterday. As I said, I am having a hard time, pun intended, to get a hold of this concept called – time. And while I am doing better, I am still far away from being able to say I am OK – and while I am doing better, I am painfully aware I am in dire need of making some extreme changes in my life.

For one – I will train myself to say – that’s it, it’s enough for today. While I am grateful for many opportunities, I need to slow down. There’s another aspect of life where I have been quite successful – kicking out, not only out of my life, but as far away as possible – the narcissists; these pathetic, no self esteem having, hypocritical, lying, always wrong but never being aware of, infantile, maladjusted, soulless creatures. Last year, I was too weak to do it, but this year – this year I was on a major cleansing and cleansing spree.

Year 2018 will be huge for me, as I am embarking on another major change in my life, which will keep me busy, super busy, but will be worth it to finally do a check mark next to another plan I’ve been having in my life for a long long time. Aside from this one, my planner is also already full of other plans for 2018 – no, not promises, but plans. Including in regards to my blog – this year, I feel, like I’ve been catching up on my plans, but always falling short of everything I wanted to do. Changes will be made in regards to dealing with certain businesses as well – I about had it with some, who still, in this day and age, believe exposure is valid currency payment. Yes, I know, you can get away with it with those bloggers, who have no standards and are, much like you, basically frauds. Just don’t direct the same emails my way.

Green beauty community has been rather strange this year. The endless posts on beauty routines, day in and day out, posts about 50 expensive products used at once and tested and reviewed in a matter of days, newly popped up bloggers, who, just yesterday, were using your average conventional beauty products are now treated as some green beauty experts (stealing from those, who are sharing decades worth of experience as knowledge helps, too, doesn’t it?) – along with the bought and paid Instagram followers and likes (after all, after Twitter put a stop on this, and when you manage to get only 100 followers on Twitter, what better way to stand out on Instagram than to buy 4000 followers in one day, right?).

An honest blogger, who puts a lot of work into sharing experience with the readers, cannot keep up with all this – and no such a blogger should feel less than – because when all is said and done, quality, creativity, originality, knowledge, experience – it all prevails eventually. I’ve found myself following less and less green beauty bloggers – as I said, too much fakeness, too much pecking behind the scenes, too much stealing and copying. On a positive note, I am glad to see the always lovely, kind, beautiful lady – Liz from Smells Like the Green Spirit – being back and posting. As I said, the positive and quality prevails eventually.

What can you expect from my blog in 2018? There are certain things that won’t change: I will still give you my detailed and honest opinions on everything. I cannot tell for how long I’ve been planning on re-designing my blog – and – by golly! – I will find the time in 2018 to do just that. I’ve been through so many various designs in the past few years, and somehow, something always came up for me to drop it while in the middle. I’ve got a truckload of reviews waiting to be shared with you, so make sure you don’t forget about my lil’ blog and check back.

In case you’ve missed – I reviewed the beautiful eye shadows from Inika this week and posted my first impressions on this month’s Love Lula Beauty box.

I haven’t been up to date with all the comments and emails you’ve been so graciously sending my way – for that – I apologize and I will make sure to remedy this on my end; however, that does not mean I am not grateful for every email and comment you’ve sent my way – because I am, more than I could express.

Yes, it’s been an eventful year, it’s been a year of slow healing, it’s been a year full of pain, still, but it’s been a year full of gratefulness and thankfulness as well. Despite everything, I am still finding the meaning of life in all those small things and keep on recharging by escaping into the forest, being surrounded with nature and everything that is good and pure in this world. And by the grace and mercy of God – here I am – still standing, stronger than ever, more determined than ever that I will make it!

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and may you be blessed! See you all in 2018!
