I thought I posted this 4 days ago… but apparently not! So, here it is.
I have been doing fairly well lately! I have been keeping busy as always with my 50 projects I have going on. I have been posting on my makeup Instagram (@mckenziebaum) every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I have seen quite a bit of progress in the last month! My blending is getting better and I have been having so much fun creating new looks. I have also gotten into photography again. I mostly have been taking pictures of my makeup, birds at the feeders, and flowers. I also started doing volunteering at Shower Up. It is a truck that provides showers, snacks and clothing to homeless people. It has been such a positive experience for me! I has also gotten into gardening now that the sunshine is out again! I has been so fun watching the seeds sprout and get big and beautiful!
I also got a new tattoo, it is a pig with a flower headband. Yes you read that right. I have been obsessed with pigs my whole life. They are just the cutest things ever! I got it now because 2019 is the Chinese year of the pig. A pig represents luck, overall good fortune, wealth, honesty, general prosperity, symbolizing a hard working, a peace-loving person, a truthful, generous, indulgent, patient, reliable, trusting, sincere, giving, sociable person with a large sense of humour and understanding.
