Update | BLM & where I’ve been

Whew, it’s been a while since I posted something on here. Or actually it’s ”only” been about two months, but it feels like six! Honestly, I just didn’t know what to post the past months, and with everything that’s been going on the past week or so, I really don’t know what to post. Do I just post another beauty review and ”ignore” everything that’s happened? Do I post about what’s been going on, even though I’m not very educated on the subject? Do I post about how I’m trying to be more educated, but I don’t even know where to begin?

That last sentence, or rather: question, is where I’m at right now. I know Instagram is filled with ”How you can help/How to be an ally” posts, but there are so many posts/causes out there that I’m still confused. Obviously I want to contribute to as many different causes as possible, but I don’t know if that’s do-able for me at this point. So what I’m trying to focus on right now is just trying to educate myself more on what’s going on both in the U.S. and in my own country in terms of racism and discrimination, and in addition to that, trying to support black creators (whether they’re bloggers, youtubers, musicians, illustrators etc), and beauty and fashion brands ran by POC. I’m going to compile a list of black creators I really like, to share on here!

I was going to update you guys on how I’m doing as well, but honestly that’d be a bit boring for you guys. Long story short: in October last year I started seeing an orthomolecular doctor, and the crap ton of blood tests I had done there showed a combination of health problems, including hypothyroidism and a vitamin B12 deficiency. So now I’m on thyroid medication as well as B12 supplements. FUN TIMES. In addition to all those things, I’m still in therapy and just started EMDR treatment. Honestly sometimes I can’t keep up with all the different therapies and medications I have, but you gotta do what you gotta do right?

I can’t really promise you guys when and how often I’m going to post on here in the near future, because even though my energy levels are better (yay!), my life is still a mess haha! I’m either super busy (well, ”busy” according to my eh.. low standards lol), and forget to work on my blog, or I’m too tired to blog because I used up all my energy being busy. So let’s just see how everything goes. You can follow me on Instagram and Bloglovin to keep up with my upcoming posts! Anyway, I hope you’re all doing well despite these confusing times. I’ll see you soon! Thanks for reading and sticking around! ♥
