Three important lessons I learned in 2020 & preparing for a successful new year! | 'CUTE, KIND OF' EPISODE #55


Hello everyone <3 Merry Christmas, welcome back to Cute Kind Of and to the final episode of 2020. I cannot believe it — seriously, since June, I have been counting down the hours till the year would end (as if COVID19 was somehow gonna expire on December 31st). 

Since I graduated in December 2019, I was excited that the year 2020 marked the start of a whole new chapter in my life. When my life picked up in February 2020, I was happy but I felt a little hesitant with the idea that a possible change was quickly approaching. It was not until March, when quarantine started, I had to get adjusted to the idea that change was not happening anytime soon. I did not know if it was a relief or self-sabotage. And obviously, if you are told "no" or denied something in your life, you want it more than ever lol. 

Anyways, in today's episode we are going over what I learned in 2020 and what will be happening in 2021. So I hope you enjoy and I want to know what you learned this year/goals for 2021.

Finally, the end of December marks a momentous occasion in my life — the anniversary since I started beauty blogging and when I started this podcast. Believe it or not, it has been nine years since I started blogging and one year since I started consistently beauty podcasting. So thank you! No, like seriously, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I owe a lot of who I am and how I turned out because of this blog and the readers/listeners. 

I am actually tearing up after writing that so I am gonna go. Merry Christmas and happy new year! I wish you all you a serendipitous week where we can maybe enjoy the rest of the year even though it was garbage for a lot of people.

the best beauty products of 2020 | 'CUTE, KIND OF' EPISODE #54


Hey friends, welcome back to another episode of Cute, Kind Of. Today, we will be wrapping up our 2020 beauty favorites. I have a lot of products to talk about but like I said in the episode, I was not extremely wowed by a ton of beauty products this year because of the circumstances. 

I got an update from Colourpop so that email response is written below. 

In other news, the Cute, Kind Of website got a facelift. Also, I redoing my Instagram feed (again) because I just want to learn how to do social media marketing right, so if you have any suggestions please let me know. 

There will be more photos of the products up on my Twitter and Instagram throughout the next several days.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the episode and have a great weekend ^_^

My At-Home Laser Hair Removal Experience | 'CUTE, KIND OF' EPISODE #52


Hello friends! Welcome back to another episode of Cute, Kind Of. Today, we are discussing hair removal. More specifically, laser hair removal. Even more specific than that, at-home laser hair removal. 

I have been doing at-home laser hair removal since February with an at-home IPL device and the results are great! I talk about how I use it and my results. I also touch on my laser hair removal journey and why I think if you are interested in laser hair removal or have even gotten it, it is beneficial to have this device. 

Also, I need to give a bit of clarification when it comes to exfoliation. When I exfoliate — which is probably the same day-to-day exfoliation you might do — I do it the day before I do the laser and wait seven days until my next hair removal session to do it again. I do not exfoliate the day of or the following few days after I do the laser. 

I am not getting paid to promote this device and none of the links in this post are affiliate links, I just love it!

Of course, if you have questions, I will be happy to help you to the best of my ability but the link to the Braun IPL device user manual is below and should answer a lot of your questions.
