There comes a time in every blogger's life when inspiration is a little lacking. It has been for a while, and we should talk about it because I value the Messy Wands community feedback. Holiday collections have been well covered by now and since I've moved to New York, I was made aware (and feel horrified about) the sheer amount of products I actually own. Because of that, I've been purchasing significantly less than I did a year ago, so new material is not something I consistently have anymore. On the flip side, my personal conscience and finances have been way better because of my newfound sensibilities.
That said, new products are the unofficial backbone of a successful makeup review blog. There are only so many times you can talk about the same lipstick or eyeshadow without repeating yourself, like how I can barely talk about Le Métier de Beauté products anymore because I can link to a dozen posts that share my sentiments clearly. As for the new stuff, let's just say something has to really blow my socks off for $95.
I'm saying this because I am quite stuck, dear readers. I would love to still consistently put up new content, but I would like to hear what you'd like to read about if it's not about new product/reviews. Makeup inspiration posts? Specific makeup tutorials? Skincare reviews? I would appreciate it if you give me suggestions or let me know what you've truly enjoyed reading throughout your time at Messy Wands, and I'm sure inspiration will hit again.
Also, I don't say this often enough but thank you to all of you for reading! I read every comment and love getting emails from readers. It floors me that you want and trust my opinion about beauty products and like the makeup looks that I messily cobble up. When I started the blog I steeled and prepared myself for hate because I know of so many of the nicest bloggers and friends who have been cyber-bullied for no reason whatsoever, but I am fortunate that I have not had to deal with this. Even people who disagree with me do so respectfully, and I have never felt more blessed that I am part of this community.
Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope you'll continue to visit Messy Wands as I figure out the direction of this blog.
