Update..

Hey guys! I apologize for not writing in so long, I just haven’t been feeling my blog lately. I’m trying to spend less time on social media and more time on school and other stuff, making it hard to post. And on top of that I wasn’t so in love with the material I was posting. I do enjoy makeup, but I really want to make more posts on hair. The problem is, I just don’t know how to do it. Of course I’ll still write, but I don’t think I’ll be posting as frequent as before. I do plan on putting up a post by the end of this month, so look forward to that. I just thought I’d explain myself for those who care 😛
