What Blogging Taught Me...Townhouse Palette's 4th Birthday

IMG_5546


I was sitting in my room yesterday (26th) around 11:50 at night when I remembered that Townhouse Palette's birthday was today (27th). Which was a really sweet surprise considering I was pretty sad that day because my car caught on fire and I had a week left of break :D

I always like taking this next week to reflect on the year and myself because that is important for self-growth. In the past, I always share a long heart to heart story which comes off slightly cheesy...lol. However, I thought I would share what blogging has taught me these past four years.

Le Nez

MY_NOSE

Cyrano De Bergerac was a cadet who worked for the French army. Even though he was real, his life was fictionalized in to a famous play by Edmond Rostand. He was known as a phenomenal fighter, lyrical poet, and a gifted musician. Using his gift of poetry, he would send anonymous letters to his cousin Roxanne, who he was in love with. However, he was never able to confess to his beautiful cousin because he thought he was ugly. 

"Cyrano de Bergerac est connu pour son grand nez." Cyrano de Bergerac is known for his big nose. He was never able to share his true feelings because he was self-conscious about his nose.

A couple weeks ago, I watched a video on this YouTuber who I have been watching since she started her channel. She is younger than me and she got a nose job. Which got me thinking about my past and my never-ending battle with my nose.

It started when I got into Asian Entertainment. A lot of people who wanted to be K-pop starts got something called the Kpop Combo. Which was getting double-eyelid surgery and a rhinoplasty.  It was really bizarre to me because I thought noses were not a big deal, but after looking at girls who were considered perfect, I began envying and comparing myself. I told myself I was going to get a nose job...I was 14.

Noses are apparently a HUGE deal when it comes to physical appearance. A ton of bloggers do it and they get criticized for it. So I took the liberty of editing three pictures of my nose and leaving one natural. Before you hit read more, guess which one it is. Then the answer will be below...

I am not a huge fan of beauty boxes because they tend to lure you in with the one or two full sized products and then add a bunch of samples. However, when I heard about the Limited Edition Allure Beauty Box, I knew I could not pass it up.

For $45 dollars, you get the best beauty products 2015. You get five popular full-sized products and two sample products. I was really excited to try all the products because everything was new to me, but I heard great things about.

Black Friday Haul

I am not a very big fan of Black Friday. The thought of waking up early after eating a 25 course meal, only to be fighting over 5 for $25 underwear with some middle aged woman, is not very thrilling. However, for introverts like me, online shopping is the way to go. Of course I have to leave the house to hit up those pre-sales and scavenge the left-overs after D-Day.

I know there has been a serious lack of makeup posts on the blog lately and I am truly sorry. I just have not been in the makeup wearing mood because of everything going on with school and life, in general. I also know, I have been doing an overwhelming amount of life posts this past year mostly regarding school. However, I do think a part of Townhouse Palette as my personal diary because I feel as if I can share my true feelings here.
