Graduation & a busy week | Life

Hey all! Last week was very quiet here on the CGJ sadly, although I had a post planned, I couldn't get around to writing it. The exhaustion from working had me falling asleep at just about any time as long as I was home. I found the only way to avoid it, is to keep my brain stimulated with another person. If not, I'm out like a light. It's really funny, I've started shows and videos and within 10 mins... ZZZzzzz...


Anyway, This week is my university graduation. Yipee! After all my years of being a student, working my butt off and everything, it's over! For now...
I had to do some last minute dress shopping last week, which wasn't my initial plan of action, but at least I found something that I really like and I think looks good on me. My parents and I had scheduled for a pre-grad photoshoot last Saturday. It was actually quite nice and fun. It went very quickly too. I can't wait to see the prints!



I don't remember if I had stated what my job was now, but I'm teaching! Although it's a challenge to remember it all, deal with classroom discipline and plan out exercises and tests, it is an amazing and surprisingly fun experience. I'm learning not to put down something before your try it.

The other teachers are also very nice and helpful. I truly am enjoying it. Save for the exhaustion, haha. I've been able to do a bit of relaxing on the weekends, but I really want to have all of my stuff together for the following weeks. It's definitely better to be fully prepared. I really have to thank my family and friends for supporting me throughout this time. Especially Tyrell, who makes the effort to come see me at home, even if I happen to fall asleep when there's a lull in conversation haha.



The Falling for Beauty link-up was unfortunately postponed last minute, but will be up again this week. If you want to co-host next month, shoot me an email at chrisamoryt@gmail.com.

ORS HAIRepair Invigorating Shampoo | Review

Hey all! This  product lives in my shower and I only have 1 more wash left with it. Wanting to try a new shampoo, I picked this up early this year, or late last year and have used it for almost every wash day (every 1 or 2 weeks).

Falling for Beauty Link-up #1

I followed a number a blog hops during 2013, and one thing that rung out to me was the number of lifestyle blogs which help blog hops. Lots of great recipes, home-making tips, organisation tips,  and the occasional OOTD, nail or beauty posts. So I wanted to create a platform for us who are in love with Beauty and all things related to it, hence the Falling for Beauty blog hop. This link up will run every Friday with the linky widget open until the following Wednesday. If you have are into hair, makeup, nails or style then join us!

Happy Belated Birthday to the CGJ!

Last week Friday (26th September) my blog turned 4 years old! YAY!! *throws confetti* 

Honestly, I remembered everyday until to Friday where I was just way too busy and exhausted to post. You could say I subconsciously celebrated the blogaversary by going out to a new bar with a group of good friends. But I want to celebrate with you guys too!

September was a month of many celebrations. Birthdays, anniversaries, new job, it was a very busy month, especially the final days of it.

I'm very happy that I've been able to keep up this blog for such a long time. Any of you who also blog know how challenging it can be to always have new, interesting content. Please don't mind if I pat myself on the back.

Thank you to all of you who visit, comment or share my blog with others! It really does help with the motivation aspect of writing. For the persons behind the scenes (my bf, and closest friends) who also give my fabulous ideas for posts, thank you!

I will be having a link-up for those of you who love beauty as much as, or even more than me. So please check back tomorrow for it! Join, check out the other blogs, or request to co-host :). Also I will soon be doing bi-monthly newsletters, so please look out for those in November.

October is my birth month, and since my blogaversary just passed, keep checking for a 2 giveaways this month!

Thank you all for the support!

This has been a long time in coming. I’ve been wearing (and loving) these lipsticks since April when I purchased them. Smooth, creamy and pigmented lipsticks, for $12BDS you really can’t go wrong. there are also so many different colours available. It’s hard not to break yourself buying them all.

Panda Dream Magic lip crayon | Review

Almost every makeup brand has brought out a crayon lookalike lip product, and I'm between minds about which ones to try. The Revlon ones have a good reputation as well as the originals like Tarte and Clinique. So when I was asked to select some items to review, I decided to test the waters with this cute Panda Dream Lip crayon from the BornPretty Store.
