I realize it’s been quite some time since my last post, but that’s only because I’ve been so busy MOVING TO ANOTHER COUNTRY! I’ve been here for about a month now, which is how long it took me to settle into my new apartment, get a job, register with a doctor, and get my national insurance number (like social security). It has been a long and hectic journey, but I’m so happy to finally be living in Newcastle, the gem of the north-east, says no one… but I love it. It has all the amenities of a big city like London, but it’s small and can easily be explored over the course of a few days. I’m just happy to be back in a place where you don’t need a car! Public transportation in San Diego is practically non-existent and here it’s just the norm! And it’s not sketchy or full of bums like San Francisco, it’s really clean and respectable! In fact, I think I’ve only ever seen one bum since I moved here and he’s very friendly. A definite improvement from my time in San Francisco…
I have to admit that when it comes to makeup and beauty products, I’m pretty much clueless. I breeze through the drugstore straight to the products that I use, that I’ve been using for years, and I never really stop to look at anything else (which is why I have no idea what the heck BB cream is..). The only beauty product type thing that I’ve always collected is nail polish and I now have shelves and boxes full of it!
When I sat down to sort through my massive collection I realized that I have quite a few overlapping colors: 3 kinds of bright pink, 2 navy blues, 5 reds, etc. When I move to England next month, I won’t be able to bring along this collected that I’ve created , so I’ve been very gradually attempting to sift through and throw out the bad, give away the good, and keep just a small assortment of basic colors to bring with me overseas.
I’m sad to see the majority go, but I think I’ve kept a few good, basic colors to get me through this difficult time!
