It was a dream of mine to start a blog for a really long time, and more than that I just wanted to help other expats who were going through the same thing I had just experienced. But it took a lot of courage to start this blog and share my writing with others because I was scared of what other people would say and of their reactions to my writing. But I am so happy that I decided to share my experiences on this blog, and your positive responses, messages, and comments have really made it all worth it.
Overall, I think that beauty just comes from who you are and nurturing what you already have. Not from covering up everything, and changing who you are. And that's one of the reasons I love Evolve Beauty, their products allow you to care for what you already have, without damaging your skin or changing who you are. As they promise, Evolve Beauty products are natural and organic, artisan made, they follow 'green science' which means they're free from synthetics, they're vegan, cruelty-free, and their packaging is recyclable. But most importantly, they celebrate your beauty and the beauty of nature.
I made the switch to using clean beauty products this year, and being more aware of what I'm putting on my skin and my body. I realised that I make such an effort to fill my body with nutritious and healthy food, when I cover it with products full of toxins and all kinds of chemicals, which is kind of hypocritical. And I know, clean beauty seems like it's all the rage right now, with more and more brands claiming to be 'organic' or 'natural', but if you find real clean beauty products, you will soon realise this whole clean beauty regime is not a fad, it really truly does work.
I think this month's posts have to be some of my favourite posts I've ever written. The 'Words From Inspirational Women' post is really meaningful makes you see a different perspective. The 'Finding Happiness' post that I wrote last week is also a post that is very close to my heart, and while I put my heart into all of my posts, this one is really special to me. Please do let me know what you think if you take a look at them.
Woah where did February go? I can not believe we're already 2 months into 2018, that's crazy!!! This month has been a quick one, and I think I've managed to keep my calm pretty well. From running in the MESAC Cross Country Competitions at the beginning of this month, to spontaneous Desert adventures on a Friday morning... #justDubaithings, and reaching 300 followers on Instagram, a lot has been happening.
