I have been a little MIA from blogging and my social media for the past couple weeks because SO much has been happening in my life right now, and today I just wanted to share with you all why I have not been on my usual schedule of blogging and posting on social media, and share some exciting news!
I’ve been wanting to write this blog post for quite some time now but felt that I really just didn’t know what I would say to myself, although I knew there were things I wanted to. It took me some time to really gather my thoughts about this so I could say it how I wanted to. My high school years were definitely not so glam, nor were they the highlight of my life, and today I will be writing the things that I wish I knew or that someone would’ve told me during this time when you’re really just growing up and discovering who you really are.
Before I get started in sharing my current sunless tanning routine, I wanted to provide a little background. I first started sunless tanning under a year ago, in February of 2018!
As a Seattleite, I hardly ever see the sun, especially during the winter months, and was SO tired of having pale and pasty skin during the winter season. Last winter I decided I needed to make a change and was actually the first time I had ever tried sunless tanning. Since then, I have absolutely loved it! I love the way my skin looks with a nice base of color during the winter time and honestly have found some of my favorite self-tanning products I’ve ever used with Golden Star Beauty!
Happy Thursday! Today I wanted to share with you all the apps I use to edit my photos for my blog and Instagram since I’ve switched up my photo editing routine a couple different times. There are so many great apps out there available for editing photos that don’t have to cost you an arm and a leg like a lot of Lightroom presets do. For me personally, especially as a college student, I do not want to spend a large amount of money on a photo editing service and have come to love a variety of different free/low-cost photo editing apps.
One thing I love about the winter time in Washington is taking little day trips throughout the season to explore different parts of the state and to go out and have a fun day (especially where there is snow!). For the past two years, Josh and I have basically started our own little winter/Christmas season tradition of taking a day trip to Leavenworth to get in the holiday spirit and have some fun in the snow!
