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…

Hey everyone! I meant to update you on how my current project pan is going sooner but it kind of slipped through the cracks. It’s okay, we’ll talk about it now. I have all Fall & Winter to finish these products after all. I kept this project manageable and I’m glad I did. Large project pans are nice but I wanted some freedom to…

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. We just hop right along from one thing to another don’t we? Sephora already has tons of “holiday” releases, which I take with a grain of salt because they started…
