"Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves."

I have been contemplating if I should stop beauty blogging but I enjoy it too much although I have not been active in recent months. I am going through several changes in my life at the moment. Some are work related and some are,… well, personal.

My husband and I will be moving house soon and I have been very busy getting our new condo together and spending most of my precious weekends on the new house / move related stuff. If you didn’t know by now, I only have time during the weekends to write and take photos.

Also, my current house is a big ol’ mess and it kinda looks like a storeroom / junkyard now. I don’t have a good setup to take photos anymore and haven’t been able to catch proper daylight, which is why a few of my previous posts had rather poor lighting. I became rather frustrated with my photos as they didn’t really turn out the way I wanted them to.

Work has also taken over my life in the last few years. Both my husband and I work long hours. We have gotten used to it but it also means we don’t get to spend as much quality time together. Many times I thought about giving up my job, and one day, I will.

Anyway, rather than rambling on too much, I just wanted to say thank you for putting up with my lack of posts and for your support. I sincerely appreciate it. I promise I’ll return after we have moved and settled into our new home. So, do stick around and before you know it, beautycabby will be back and running again.

guerlain lingerie de peau bb cream

The Guerlain BB cream was honestly a very last minute purchase and I picked it up as I was leaving the duty-free section at the Haneda Airport. I have been very particular about BB creams lately and hardly bought any in recent years. I find myself preferring the fit and finish of liquid foundations although most BB creams will tout endless list of benefits if you wear them.

smashbox full exposure

Smashbox Full Exposure was probably one of the eye palettes I had my eye on (no pun intended) for a really long time. The palette looks promising, with a good mix of shimmery and matte shades all in one handy box. And man, the packaging is nice too with the sturdy black casing and holographic font across.

top monthly picks

I’ve been very quiet lately because of work and travel. I didn’t mean to not blog for so long but it’s been rather hectic and I haven’t really had time to sit down and think about what to write or photograph. I do have quite a few new things that I’d be sharing in the next posts but for now, let’s recap what I’ve been enjoying the last two months.

I haven’t been particularly active on social media and my blog lately because I’ve been sinking in a huge pile of work. I didn’t get time over the past weekends to compose my posts and take photos.

I hope to be back to my regular blogging schedule. There are quite a few exciting new products that I’m dying to share with you and I will get around to it :-)

See y’all soon and I hope you have a good week ahead!

Lotsa luv,
