 Hello everyone!

    I wanted to announce a new series I'll be starting here and on my social media. Every Monday will be Mental Health Mondays where I share some tips that have helped me in maneuvering the world of social media. 

I have no degree in Psychology or any of the sort but I am a person whose dealt with maneuvering the fast changing, algorithm reigning world of social media (I'll get more into the all-seeing, domineering algorithm deity in another post.) I've also struggled with extremely toxic work environments in retail management that have brought me to the brink multiple times. Have I totally broken from the cracks and low self esteem that these entities poured on me? No. But I am here equipped with better knowledge and more defined boundaries to help me recover and prevent that level of distraught from conquering me again. Yea!

 Honestly as I type this now, it's difficult to realize I'm sharing this as I'm a particularly private person (Scorpio Moon AND sun) but I felt it was important to share my experience so that it can maybe reach others that are dealing with similar issues. 

I'm a content creator that has taken extended breaks throughout the last 10 years. From 2010 - 2015 I was heavily into vlogging, YouTube, blogging etc but from 2016 on I've paused due to the aforementioned toxic jobs, mental health and a vastly changing social media landscape. In 2021 I finally made a return to consistent content creation trying out platforms like TikTok for the first time. Honestly not much has changed other than qualifications being more strict and growing being more stagnant.

But for this first edition I wanted to focus on the side that content creators or just casual social media users deal with: the effects of being bombarded with images of celebrity/influencer lifestyles. 

Could this be a prequel to a BIGBANG return? We certainly hope so. 

King of Style G-Dragon has graced our presence as the new model for Korean hair care line The Trust TS. Multiple images have been released showcasing Mr. Kwon's tousled bob cut hair.

Being right at the end of summer and beginning of autumn makes August a strange month. We require sunscreen and serums for the penetrating sun but moisturizers for the chilly nights approaching: thus making transitioning skincare and beauty a hassle. According to Dr.Bailey.com using gentle cleansers, moisturizing daily and generously applying lip balm are a few ways to easily transition our skin routine. So here are 5 great transitional items to get your skin ready for autumn.
