The importance of self-care | 12th blogiversary

Hello everyone, I'm back!! Finally, summer is almost over; I can't wait for the cooler weather to hit the island. Additionally, I am very much looking forward to  the spooky season .  These past few months have been very challenging for me. For personal reasons, I have been away from social media for quite some time and haven't written a blog post in a while. But today, I looked at the date and realised that this day marks  twelve (12) years since my first blog post .

Eleven is a lot of years to be writing a blog.  Eleven years ago... I was 25 years old. I started blogging because I wanted to help other people who were dealing with acne and adult acne. I loved experimenting with DIY beauty recipes. Initially, the blog was named  Skin Care Suggestions . The main focus of the blog was skincare. I used to write under the screen name Euphrasie85. It was common practice back then.   Social media was not really a thing . Many people close to me did not understand what I was doing; or why I was doing it. At first, I used my phone to take pictures for the blog.  Back then, cameras phones were nowhere near as good as they are today. I was not yet a vegan. I had not fully embraced my wavey/curly hair. Trivia: The 18th of September, 2010 was a Satur
