I'm Baaack!

Well hi there!

I'm baaaaaaack! I did a bad thing and completely abandoned this blog sometime last year. It wasn't because I didn't want to blog, I just had a lot going on. Second year of university kicked my ass and I had no time at all to post or update here. When summer rolled around, I had planned to get back into it but, as summer usually does, it carried me away and I forgot all about blog posts I had intended on writing. So, here I am and ready to blog!

What have I been up to? Well, I finished up second year of university with relatively good grades which I am proud of since it was the hardest year of my life thus far. I spent the majority of my summer working and travelling. I went to Toronto a couple of times, went to Montreal for Osheaga Music Festival, and went to the States for a couple of days. I've managed to keep my depression at bay which I am extremely proud of. I still struggle with anxiety on a daily basis but I have methods now that I use to keep it from getting the best of me. 

Currently, I am in my third year of university. I had a pretty rough first semester since it was all film courses but this semester is a little less heavy (hence why I'm back here!). I dyed my hair hot pink back in September and have had it ever since. I'm still working as a cosmetician and experienced my first Christmas in retail which was absolutely CRAZY. But I survived! 

As you may have noticed, I changed the title of my blog. I did this because I want this to be a place where I can write about anything and not just fashion and beauty. I will definitely be posting about those still but I wanted to add in more lifestyle bits like trips, concerts, and restaurants. I, also, wanted feminism to be an aspect of this blog. I feel that it's important for women and men to learn about gender equality in a number of different ways and I want to help others learn and understand that.

Anyways, that's all from me here! Thanks for sticking with me (and if you're new, thanks for reading!) and I promise I will try my hardest to post as often as I can. I have a few ideas for posts already and I just need to get them organized. Can't wait to start fresh!
