12 Search Terms That Led People To My Blog

So I just found out that with Jetpack site stats I can see search terms for the last week, last month, last quarter, last year and all time. I thought that sounded pretty fun so I’ve been going through them.. and oh. my. gosh. WHY do people search the things they do and more importantly WHY do they end up on my blog?! Here are some of my favorite (and some just clearly ridiculous) search terms that led people to my blog.

30-Pan MAC Eyeshadow Palette Giveaway

I have been delving a bit further into beauty lately on this blog as I had noticed a good response from my lovely readers when I had posted in the past a bit about beauty here and there. While I will never be a beauty blogger, I am making a more conscious effort to include a bit more beauty in my posts as it IS something that I really enjoy and have a lot of fun with!

you’re being challenged to look up

Being a blogger and a graphic/web designer, I am on the computer or my phone a LOT. It’s kind of inevitable. This definitely can take a toll on my sanity, though. I often will get up from my desk and go stand outside on the balcony for a few minutes just to take a little break, revitalize and enjoy the view. Sometimes I’ll go for a walk to a coffee shop or the grocery store simply because I want to get outside and enjoy the world outside my little office for a while. Living in a day and age of social media and tons of technology-based jobs, we often find ourselves glued to our computers, phones or even our TVs. Have you ever taken some time to put down the tech stuff, go outside and just look up? Even walking down the street we often have our heads down, looking at our phones, checking our Facebook or Twitter feeds to see what we’re missing out on. What we’re REALLY missing out on is the beauty of life and what is happening around us in that very moment. We need to stop more often and take a few minutes to look up.

Disclosure: this post contains my Ipsy affiliate link. Obviously, I would LOVE for you to sign up under me if you are interested!

It’s time for an Ipsy Glam Bag review! I finally got off the waitlist for Ipsy last month, but didn’t get last month’s bag in time to share everything without spamming the world with yet another Ipsy post. This month’s bag is late too but I don’t even care, I want to share for everyone who may not see reviews elsewhere! If you haven’t signed up for Ipsy, you definitely should. At only $10 a month (+ $4.95 shipping if you live in Canada which really isn’t that bad at all), I certainly look forward to this happy mail!

Neutrogena Triple Repair

Neutrogena Triple Repair #StrongerHair #adDisclosure: While this post has been sponsored by Single Edition Media on behalf of Neutrogena, all thoughts and opinions remain my own.

I recently got my hair done for the first time in what feels like forever. I don’t think I had anything done to it (professionally, I have box-dyed- don’t kill me hairdresser friends) other than a hair cut since I was in New Zealand and had a hair dresser I really liked. Since spontaneously chopping off my long hair back in April, I recently found myself with the dreaded “awkward length” going on. You know, when you cut your hair fairly short and it eventually hits that just past your shoulder length that isn’t short but isn’t long? The awkward length. I do NOT suit this length of hair in any way, shape or form. It does nothing for me. And because I want my hair to grow long again, I can’t just chop it off and be done with the awkward length. I have to work with it until it’s past this point.
