FabFitFun Winter Box Review | 2018

It’s been literally an entire year since I reviewed a Fabfitfun box. I quit just about all subscription boxes this year. I was reviewing Boxycharm for a few months but I was overwhelmed receiving so many full sized beauty products each month. Lately I’ve missed reviewing subscription boxes though so I thought what better subscription to return to than Fabfitfun? Fabfitfun always sends a great…

Then Vs. Now | Makeup Progress

Last January I published my Then vs. Now Blogging Journey post. I wanted to document how far I had come in my blogging journey from learning to write a blog post to arranging better flatlays. In that post I documented the progression of what was then called “Classycatsbox” into the beauty blog “Always, Cleia”. I loved writing that blog post. In the current blogging…

October Beauty & Lifestyle Favourites 2018

Another month has come and gone. I am totally not ready for the onslaught of Christmas decorations that I’ve seen at every department store and online retailer I’ve visited in the past three weeks.

It’s incredible how many bloggers I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know through commenting on each others posts and instagram accounts, I feel like I truly know so many of you even though we’ve never met!

52 Lists Project Catch Up | May & June

It’s been about four months since I posted my last 52 lists project list. I’ve been so busy that I didn’t find much quiet time to sit and fill out my lists. The past week and a half I’ve been playing catch up. I don’t want to cram all four months of lists into one post so we’re going to do two months at…

Spring & Summer Favourites | Beauty & Lifestyle 2018

It’s hot out, the sun is shinning and I’ve been sipping Mojitos on my patio the past few weeks. It always feels like the hot months go by way to fast and winter drags on forever. I need to spend more time outside before it starts getting chilly again! I put favourites on hold these past few months because I wasn’t really using anything…
