Happy Friday, friends! It has been a hot minute since my last update. My 2018 Beauty Challenge is still in full swing and is going quite well! I have used up a ton of products and rediscovered old favorites. I’ve really been enjoying downsizing my makeup and skincare collection.
Hello, friends! Happy Saturday! I am so excited to be sharing today’s post, as it was a memorable experience for me. A few weeks ago I visited Juicy Beauty which is a beauty clinic here in Copenhagen.
Is it just me, or did January just fly right by? Usually the winter months tend to drag on, but I feel like it was just Christmas yesterday! An entire month has passed since I started my 2018 Beauty Challenge. If you’re not up to date, I am not going to purchase any beauty products until I use up everything I have. I explain my entire plan in the post, so I highly recommend checking it out!
For as long as I can remember, my skin has always been a topic of conversation. Some have been positive and some have been … not so positive. In one of my earliest memories of grade school, I can remember a classmate asking me, “Why is your skin so white?” Up until that point, I hadn’t even questioned that myself. Why WAS my skin so pale? I just shrugged my shoulders, and we carried on with our playtime.
A couple years later I can recall being at a swimming party for one of my good friends. Everyone was in their bathing suit getting ready to hop into the pool when one girl looked at me and shouted, “You look like a ghost! A real ghost!” Another one of my friends joined in on the conversation asking me, “Yeah, why don’t you tan? Don’t you EVER get a tan?” I can’t remember what my answer was, but I do remember that being the first time I was ever embarrassed of my complexion.
