Beneath The Blog

Hello, it’s Lau.

For the most part of this year, I’ve been silent..very silent. I didn’t ever intend for this to happen.

Last year, I was posting weekly and devoting all my time and passion into creating a blog I was proud of..And I did that. I can look through all of my posts in 2018, and I can see passion..so much passion. I was determined to make Honestlylau something I’d do for a lifetime, but as 2018 was ending, I got side tracked with just life.

I felt like I had no time for blogging, but in actual fact.. I had all the time in the world. I lost the motivation to create content, I have endlessly created and deleted posts because every idea I came up with, just wasn’t good enough.

So, through 2019. I stopped. Without another thought, I left this behind and started being an adult. My whole life changed around and blogging was just not what I wanted to do anymore.

Till one day, I deleted the app. But I never wanted to delete my blog, that was my game over. Deleting it would of been hours of dedication thrown away just because I lost motivation. And who knows if I would of gained it back later on. Months down the line, I could of rekindled this motivation and have this blog going again.

And that’s what I’ve done today. Rekindled my motivation.

This time last year, I lost my motivation. But now, I have it back and I hope you will join me.

Thank you.

Lau.

We’ll Try This Again.

Hello. It’s Lau. And I again, disappeared from blogging without a trace. And I don’t have quite a reason why. I’d like to get back into it, and hopefully be more on top and not a post once every year.

If you hear from me in a few days, that means I’m trying and that’s almost successful.

See you soon?

Anyways, if you’d like to see how to have a Christmas Pamper Session then keep on reading.

Christmas Pamper Session

So, a pamper session is about feeling relaxed and just pampered. A sense of refreshment and tranquility.

The first step is a warm bubbly bath, it’s relaxing for everyone.

After the bath, it’s time to get into something comfortable.

And then it’s time for skincare. Cleanse, exfoliate, oils, moisturiser..ect. A face mask, anything to make you feel refreshed.

You could paint your nails, get a hot chocolate.

It’s about you that evening, so do anything you want.

That’s about it. Thank you for reading.

Get Ready With Me *Christmas Edition* – Blogmas #5

Hello!

It’s Lau. And welcome to Blogmas Day Five, today I wanted to do a get ready with me as I get ready for a little party I have to go to.. (I don’t, I just needed an excuse)

So, if you like to hear me talk about Christmas and see what products I’ve been using then keep on reading.

Get Ready With Me *Christmas Edition*

Hello, I am about to get ready and it will take me twice as long because I’m writing everything down to.

Okay, let’s get started. I need to start by washing my face because it just seems logical, I need to cleanse and exfoliate.

Anyways, whilst I’m doing this let’s talk about Christmas. So what are you all doing for Christmas this year? Are you spending it away from home? Are any of you throwing any parties or going to any? I’m not really.

I’ve just finished that, and now I’m onto moisturising and priming. I’m using the Nivea moisturiser and the Benefit Porefessional primer.

Anyways, this year I won’t be doing much, and not yet do I feel very Christmasy. I have only just started Christmas shopping, I still have more to do but I’m holding off for now.

Now onto foundation, I have been using the Rimmel Lasting Finish in Soft Beige because I’m quite tanned and it matches rather well.

The reason I’m holding it off is because I still haven’t got much of an idea what else to get. The person I’m shopping for is very picky so it’s not easy.

Onto makeup, let apply concealer. Which is the Revolution Conceal + Define in C3 and then I’m setting it with the MUA translucent setting powder.

I’m doing fairly well at shopping for them, but as I said it’s not easy. I ended up asking for help in the end.

Anyways, makeup. I then move onto bronzer, blush and highlight Which are all by Sleek just in different palettes.

I’m not as into makeup as I once was, so on a daily basis I do very simple makeup.

So, I ended up asking for help and it did help because I asked one of our friends to help. We ended up walking around multiple times, and into the same shops multiple times.

Anyways, next I need to do the eyes. I just applied a cookiedough colour into my crease and then added some mascara. I want the look to be more focused on the bold lips.

So, after looking around I found a few things that was just acceptable by my standards. I’m still not finished but I will continue it next week.

Okay, now onto the lips. When I think of Christmas makeup, usually red comes to mind. So I applied a red lipstick and that’s it.

Thank you for reading this rant/almost helpful Get Ready With Me.

I will see you tomorrow.

Best Way To Get That Warm Christmasy Feeling

Not very many people actually feel Christmasy around Christmas time, and there are a few things you can do.

1. Decorations and Music

Put up your decorations and listen to Christmas music, it’s just the start on being Christmasy.

2. Re-live Your Christmas Memories

This is probably the best way to feel Christmasy, but everyone has at least one good Christmas memory. Whether that being watching your mum bake cookies or going to watch a Christmas film with your siblings. Re-live those memories and see how fast you get that warm feeling.

3. Go and See Family

Christmas is very much about spending time with the ones you love. Go and see your family and when you’re walking or driving home look around you at the Christmas lights but don’t stare at them too long if you’re driving because that’s not safe.

Anyways, that’s a few way on how to get into the Christmas spirit. Thank you do much for reading and I will see you all tomorrow.
