Best of Beauty 2021

This year, I barely wore any makeup save for some eye makeup every now and then, though I really miss wearing a full face.

Quick Review: Shiseido Tsubaki – Shampoo & Conditioner (Moist) + a quick trip down memory lane

People always seem to think that cropped pixie cuts such as mine are low maintenance, but honestly, I have never fiddled around more with my hair than when my hair was short.
