Hey there, it's been a while, huh? I took a long break for various personal reasons, but I'm slowly trying to make a comeback into the beauty blogging world. I've decided to keep this a hobby and strictly that. I need to remind myself to only update when I'm mentally and emotionally up for it. I never want to feel like working on mu-tokki is a fruitless chore. Also, I would like to start including both eyes/lips swatches in my posts, links to other bloggers I admire, along with the jewelry and outfits I wear. Starting up again feels fresh and in light of that, I've also committed myself to phasing out watermarks. I think it is the major factor as to why blogging felt so tedious for me. There are still a few backed up posts that already have watermarked photos, but we should be free of them soon. I want to note that, the absence of watermarks is not an invitation to steal my work and post it elsewhere, especially without permission and proper crediting. Overall, I'm happy with the decision and really hope I don't end up regretting it. So please, respect my work (as I am quite the novice photographer anyway), and if you would like to use my images, all you have to do is ask. Happier blogging days, here I come!
