A year on, it's time for me to reflect and decide whether or not this is a hobby I want to continue pursuing.

A friend once said to me that taking care of myself was more than just doing a face mask and it's a sentiment that rings true across the beauty community where self-care rarely extends past a new lipstick or a pamper evening. As our society becomes more and more tolerant and knowledgeable of mental illness, it makes sense that we also address our part in down-playing stigma and accepting difference in our community.

So let's jump into what I got!
