Sunday Stash Shopping #56: Mulberry and Smile

It’s that time again, when I have to pay for this site’s hosting. I just received an email from Hostgator, and they will be charging me US$107.40 for next year’s fees. That’s A LOT! I am not willing to pay so much and am willing to change host. I was recommended Hostnext, Bluehost and Hostmds. So far, Hostnext looks good, price wise. If you have your own domain, who’s hosting your site? Any recommendation?

I’m not sure where blogging will take me next year. If I decide to continue, I will be looking at making some videos (but still figuring out HOW), and quite possibly expanding the scope of this blog so it’s not just dedicated to beauty stuff. I hope I won’t be losing too many of you, but my interest in beauty stuff has dwindled off and there are other beautiful things in life too. Do let me know your thoughts.

Anyway, today’s look is a little bit of purple / burgundy on the eyes. I totally forgot to take the photo of products used, so I’ll just name them below. I’ve done reviews on most of them anyway.

  • I think Bluehost is more expensive than what you’re paying now (because there is plenty of fine print…) though they are good in terms of when you need help, etc. Gosh Lily I have to admit I think I’ll stop my beauty blog because I adore beauty products as a user, I work with them so I have to think about them all day long, but that extra step of writing about them in my free time I realise was becoming too much and time consuming when really I want to do other things, like play the piano, or when I’m inspired about life put that in Papaya Pieces… So my thoughts on your blogging: just lead it to what makes you inspired and happy!
    ANYWAY, I’ve been doing a purply burgundy eyeshadow a lot lately (with Dolce and Gabbana cream shadow in Dahlia) like in your look πŸ™‚ I love it!

      Hi Sofia, yes I had a look at Bluehost and it seems pricier. I’m going to miss your Potions 21 though. Such informative posts, chemistry made easy for us to understand. I haven’t tried anything from Dolce and Gabbana but a quick search online shows beautiful swatch! The lipstick in Dahlia looks good too πŸ™‚

  • Mulberry is so DARK on me-it looks like I got punched in the eyes haha. I think I gave it to Marky because she likes dark eyes. Your skin looks so GOOD dude! Flawless!!
    Yeah, I hear ya about blogging. I’m bored with blogging just about beauty as you know, so I’ve started writing about other stuff so I say DO IT. Write about what makes YOU happy! And we’ll keep reading!

    • Lily

      Thanks Tracy. I love dark eyes. You see, my hooded eyes kinda made this look more wearable I think. Hehe! Thank you so much for the support. I think I’ll be able to clear all my backlogs by end November so I’ll figure out what to do next. Saying no to many PR samples help too πŸ™‚

  • Yes, Tracy is right – your skin is ON POINT, LILY. Beautiful! And I will continue to read whatever fun stuff you are talking about πŸ˜‰

    • Lily

      Thanks Larie. The pores though πŸ™ And thanks for the support! We’ll see where the wind blows. Heh.

  • πŸ˜€ I love your look so much. The purple really makes everything look beautiful πŸ™‚

    I agree w/ya..there’s so much things in life that’s worth documenting, not just beatuty products. Do continue, and blog about anything that makes you happy =D

    • Lily

      Thank you! And yes blogging should be fun, not a job or an obligation. I guess I’ll just go where my heart leads me πŸ™‚

  • ohhh mulberry is pretty! 100000000% percent support you expanding your life outside of beauty — I plan to do the same! We read this blog not only for your lovely makeup reviews/looks, but also because we like you! What’s the saying? Come for the content, stay for the personality πŸ™‚

    • Lily

      Thank you so much for your kind words! Come for the content, stay for the personality. That touched my heart immensely. *muacks*

  • Yesss, like it! Especially the lip color.

    • Lily

      I’ve been enjoying lighter lip colours like this recently. But of course, my love for vampy lips hasn’t died down!
