MondayMusings: Square One

A.K.A. It’s All About Experimentation

Hello and welcome!

Today will be the start of a series I’d originally considered calling MakeupMondays. However, since I know I’d be dabbling in various topics within the realms of health, beauty, lifestyle, and everything in between, I wanted to expand the title to reflect that.


In my last post, I’d mentioned that #makeuptherapy helped me get through difficult times. The application of makeup was a zen-like experience that helped me calm and center myself when things got complicated. It also forced me not to cry. Makeup is also a form of self-expression, an extension of one’s ensemble, and an accessory all its own to complete a look before going out into the world. It’s easy to switch it up, go bold, be classic, take risks and be creative.

I want this series to be fun and informative and also want to hear from you what tips and tricks you’ve picked up along the way. We’re all learning and discovering new products and techniques. It’s an adventure that I’m up for.

When it comes to health and lifestyle, we’ll be discussing nutrition, fitness, hobbies, and anything that contributes to our overall well-being. If there’s one thing I’ve learned through the chaos I’ve forged through is that we always need to find a balance in life.

I’ve enjoyed watching beauty bloggers and their reviews and tutorials of various products and techniques. There are various online communities and websites that to networking and sharing ideas on these topics.

So, today was just an overview of what I wanted to share with you each week. Let me know if you have any topic suggestions that you’d like me to write about. I’m always up for an investigative challenge.

I recently joined influenster, an online community where members can share reviews on various products and they can qualify to get free products in what is called a voxbox in exchange for an honest review. I think this is a great opportunity. Just like their tagline says: Discover. Review. Share.

I got my voxbox in the mail today and I’m excited to share my review on some John Frieda products. I’m going to use the products this week and give an in-depth week review next Monday.

Thanks for reading and joining me on my continuous adventure. Until next time…
