If you read my previous post, Lazy Bones, you’ll know that I advised you all to get up and wash the makeup off of your face before going to bed (and after a long, hard day at work)… Well, you’ll be pleased to know that my post inspired one person and counting… Me.

Yes, guys, I inspired myself to get up and walk all the way to my bathroom (less than 5 steps) where I later (after not much deliberation) washed my face with MyChelle‘s White Cranberry facial cleanser (to be reviewed on Saturday afternoon).

There. Laziness will not win. Busy days will not get the better of me. Makeup wipes will not be used unnecessarily.

Now, all that’s left to do is crack the case of my insomnia… It’s about time I nipped it in the bud!

Night,

‪Dear diary,

Taking my makeup off with face wipes is now ‘the norm’ since returning to work after the Christmas period. I don’t understand why my face doesn’t do trips to the basin at night anymore!‬ I’m only 25 years of age… I should not be this lethargic and bedbound (or “room-bound” should I say).

It’s got to be said that I do frighten myself in the morning from time to time. I always look in the mirror and see a raccoon/panda hybrid with my face underneath. You know, if you work for World Wildlife Federation, or have a penchant for pandas and/or raccoons, you might think that could seem cute. I, myself, love pandas and raccoons but not when it’s merged with my face like some abnormal (and the epitome of failure) Snapchat face-swap attempt.

I’m writing this post to raise awareness for lazy derrières like mine in a hope that they’ll get up from the comfort of their beds and make the far-and-wide trip to their bathroom. It’ll all be worth it (like L’Orèal) in the end. As the saying doesn’t but should go: “if it’s not worth it, it’s not the end”. You’ll feel fresh as a daisy. 🙂

*I brush my teeth after eating my dinner at 6pm* so, in hindsight, washing my face then could work!

Love and light (not laziness),

Miamii

Do you guys use emojis? I absolutely love them. I can’t express myself without them. I mean, I even have an emoji mug (bought to me as part of a Secret Santa) which I take to work with me. I’ve also got a ‘lovestruck’ 😍 emoji pillow thar takes pride of place on my bed. I should’ve got the crying with laughter one instead to be fair! 😂

This post has nothing to do with ‘Beauty’ itself  – although – one could argue that emojis are beautiful things. Therefore, you know what? I take back my comment. It does. It has a lot to do with Beauty!

As you can see, I love emojis. A lot. While we’re on the subject, I think the best addition made  onto iOS’ 2016 emoji update was — bacon. Obviously it was nice sEwing the male and female worker and student emojis but let’s all cut to the chase… The only emoji anyone really needs when describing what they’re going through in life is: fried pork. 🥓

I’ve actually written sentences and played “Emojinary” with emojis as well. “What’s Emojinary?” I hear you cry… Well, it’s a game like Pictionary, only you use emojis to describe a film, song, word etc. instead of drawing.

For example,

Film: 🦁👑

Song: 💋🙋🏻📲

Word: 🤳🏼

Comment your ideas for what the answers could be below to (not) win a prize. C’mon guys and dolls, don’t forget the January Money …or the lack of it… Blues.

Love,

P.S. what is your favourite emoji? Do you even like emojis? Let’s start an emojified conversation!

Ooooh! 🚨  COOL IDEA ALERT 🚨

Comment using your Top 5 Top Emojis (found in your Most Used history). 😜 If you’re brave enough – you could even go as far as creating a sentence out of ’em!

I literally cannot wait to see what you come up with, lovers! ❤

Guys and dolls,

Beauty Bae has an extremely exciting and absolutely amazing announcement! I’m proud to reveal that this blog will soon be sponsored by Harmony Life. Get the party-poppers out, lovers!  🎉

That lovely lot over at Harmony Life are sending me products to try in exchange for an honest review! 😍

Harmony Life chose to sponsor Beauty Bae because it’s “interesting” and “has a large following”. They’ll be featuring my blog posts on their Instagram and Facebook pages to over 40,000 followers, whilst keeping me in their Bloggers Circle! 😭☺️👍👏

This is the moment I thank all of you for reading, for commenting, for LIKING and interacting. You’re all LEGENDS! You’re all FAMILY (until we do a DNA test and find out otherwise). 💔 We’ll still be sisters/brothers, regardless!

However, my first post as a sponsoree (if that’s even a word) of Harmony Life will be published in a few months because it’ll focus on ‘Hair Jazz‘ (a lengthening  haircare line). According to the website, we should allow three months of continuous and consistent use before seeing maximum results – so I’m going to do as they say.

I’m so excited to try Hair Jazz because, as you may know, I’ve started 2017 somewhat bald (and broke) after my hairdresser trimmed* 65% of my hair off because it had gotten damaged by bleach.

*CHOPPED OFF

At the moment, my hair is up to my shoulders in length but it was halfway down my back prior to getting it cut after Christmas… So, now is the time we put those party-poppers away and get those violins out, sweethearts… Let’s all play our best renditions of Für Elise as we mourn the loss of my luscious albeit spilt-ended locks! 🎻😭

Love & light,

Miamii xxx
