CLEAN BEAUTY // JANUARY 21, 2020
I am so behind on beauty post because I have been regaling y'all with year, decade and unemployment updates BUT I am trying to make more of an effort to post personal, beauty, and other topics better evenly and try not to heavy one topic over another.
So that being said, my Jiyubox for winter!
The theme for this box us staying hydrated and de-stressing. Please know that this box was gifted to me but all thoughts and opinions are my own! I am also under no obligation to post in exchange for product but I have always loved to share natural beauty brands.
PERSONAL // JANUARY 15, 2019
WOO! More posts I can't make money off of and are enjoyable to maybe half a dozen people. Apparently part 1 of this made my friend cry on NYE and in a weird way I'm really proud of that. I have always aimed to write in a way that makes people laugh, cry, and just think about heavy shit in general.
If you haven't read part 1 yet you can read it here, if you want something just for 2019 and more fluffy you can read that here, otherwise: welcome, hello, thank you for showing up.
Y'all don't need an intro though, because you read part 1... right?
BRAND FEATURE // JANUARY 6, 2020
At long last, a proper carry on luggage case for travelling. Up until very recently I was using a travel duffle bag for all my travels, no matter how much stuff I had to bring with me. Whether I was on a weekend getaway or a week-long trip all of my belongings had to fit in a duffle bag that my shoulder then had to hold the brunt of. I moved slowly through airports, had constant neck and back pain while travelling and had to completely unpack the entire bag to be able to find anything.
I had been interesting in buying a proper carry-on suitcase for quite some time but overwhelmed by the multitude of options available. Do I go budget friendly and opted for a soft shell or is hard shell the way to go? A house brand from a department store or one of the many Instagram-hyped brands? Do I need one of those fancy schmancy suitcases that also has a portable charger?
Because of who I am as a person, I naturally wanted something Instagramable aka: one of the stylish hard shell luggage carry-ons I had been seeing online. When Monos gifted me one of their carry-ons I was excited to take it with me to California to see if it was really worth all the hype.
OH HI THERE!
Vicki feels kind of ridiculous talking about herself in the third person as if she isn't the one writing this.
She already feels weird when people call her an influencer, please don't make her write her own bio too.
Sponsored posts or gifted items will always be noted. Some posts contain affiliate links but I always disclose when they do. This means that I receive a small commission if you purchase a product I've linked to.
All opinions are 100% my own which should be pretty obvious because I swear a fuckload. Brands love it. Probably. I've only ever gotten one cease and desist letter but it was fake anyways.
Also LOL about me disclosing about sponsored posts. At the time of me writing this little blurb I haven't done a single sponsored blog post and if anything this blog costs me my own sweet coin because I'm always buying my own products to review. Shout out to the first brand who wants to pay me for a review. Just not a fitness tea please.
Fuck those companies.
