Week 4 of July 2021 – Shop My Stash

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your Saturday day/night going? Mine? Ehhh… I’ve been better. I’ve had a few really bad fibro days. No energy, high pain and barely sleeping.

I wanted to take time off to just ride this flair out but… today when I logged into my TikTok I found that I hit 1,000 followers!!!! I know that’s not that many, but to me it’s everything. I’m a shy person that has a huge case of social anxiety so doing videos and interacting with people can be challenging for me. My TikTok account is a platform that I can use to be a positive influence for others who are hurting, who are in a dark place, who just need to hear a kind word… and like I do with my blog… I also talk a heap about makeup. The fact that 1,000 people would take the chance and follow me on this little journey of self help, love, encouragement and mine obsession with all things makeup makes me so happy, and so grateful. So I jumped in the shower and set myself up in front of my vanity and did my makeup and did a thank you video as well as took pictures to do a face of the day blog post.

If you’re interested in TikTok I’d love it if you would follow my account GrumpyPixie . I do sneak peaks on makeup hauls and I do sneak peaks on the looks I’m doing for my Face of the Day… and I try to be a source of encouragement for the masses.

OK, shameless plug over….Now on to this week’s Makeup Stash Box….
