Walking into TK Maxx and seeing the beauty aisle stocked full of Korean skincare was my ‘kid walking into a candy store’ reality. You’d be surprised how easy I am to please.
Having purchased a few items online earlier this year from brands such as Tony Moly and Laneige, I was overjoyed when I came across a range of Korean beauty products during my latest visit to TK Maxx. Now, I can’t pretend I’m an expert on the Korean beauty scene. If we’re being honest my unruly obsession of novelty packaging was probably what pushed me to buy these.
If you’ve been hanging around the blogosphere long enough, you’re sure to remember WIWT, or What I Wore Today. Back when it was still the daily outfit blog of Poppy Dinsey, I thought this was the coolest idea – sharing what you’re wearing with just a quick snap. In these more modern times of beautifully photographed blog posts that look as though they could’ve been taken from the pages of a magazine, it’s hard to keep up.
Have you ever told yourself something along the lines of: “I’ll be happy when XYZ happens”? I’ve often thought about the future – where I want to be career-wise, geographically, health-wise – and told myself that once I reach that point, then I’ll be happy. In doing so, I confirm to myself that whatever is happening in my life right now isn’t enough to make me happy, that happiness is an object lying further ahead, at a distant point along the road that I can’t yet reach. Viewing happiness in this way, seeing it as something you have to plan for or be in the right situation for, makes it unattainable. It makes us look at happiness as an answer to a question for which we don’t have the words to ask.
As it’s been a little while since I last wrote a blog post, I wanted to try and get something fresh out, partly to get some new content up but also for my own sanity. Work is good fun at the moment though long hours, and my blog keeps suffering and being neglected as a result. I truly love writing though, so I know I need to make time for blogging.
This is just a quick post on something I’ve wanted to talk about for a while, more or less since I started my new job. Perseverance.
