I was honestly expecting to blog more this month, but September has passed by faster than expected. The thing about time is that it cannot be stopped or prolonged. One day passes by after another, and without notice the week is basically over. But is only the human that is consciously aware of time and the side effects of procrastination. We're constantly living our lives based on the amount of things getting done within the least possible amount of time. What ever happened to pausing and looking around for a while? What's the point of speeding if you're going on the wrong direction?
These are just ramblings, so you can ignore this post altogether. But I'm taking a course on Photography and Psychoanalysis which induces the participants to be constantly questioning things. That's when I came across a quote by a photographer, Todd Hido:
"I believe that all those signs from your past and all those feelings and memories certainly come together, often subconsciously, and form some kind of a fragmented narrative. Often you're telling your own story but you may not even know it."
Hi there! So I recently purchased a few makeup products. I tend not to splurge so much on makeup. Once I find products I like, I use them up and repurchase them. And in mi opinion, some drugstore brands are as good as some high end or department store brands. I was initially going to buy an Urban Decay palette (they finally arrived to Peru recently!), but then I came across this one that looked a bit similar and for a cheaper price.
So these are the products I purchased:
Hi there! It's been so long since the last time I posted a fashion haul. I usually forget to do these types of posts because the blog isn't really fashion oriented, but I guess it's okay to do so once in a while. Since winter is coming to an end (hopefully), many stores had sales and really good discounts on items from the upcoming season. I decided to buy four blouses and a pair of jeans. When I went to the mall, I initially wasn't really expecting to buy anything. But on some occasions I just come across certain items that I must buy --otherwise I know I'll regret it later. So here is what I bought:

Hello there! So on an unrelated subject, I came across this website called Human Metrics were you can take a personality test. According to Carl Jung’s and Isabel Briggs Myers’ theory, there are 16 personality types. It basically divides and categorizes the types of introverts and extroverts. It's possible to have a combination two personality types, but one always predominates. As a psychologist, it might be strange that I don't post much about psychology related subjects. That is because the intention of this blog was to write about other types of topics, such as product reviews and beauty DIYs.
Many online personality tests are not trustworthy. However, I found the accuracy of this test to be quite impressive --which is why I wanted to share it. My results were that I have the INFJ personality. It stands for Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Judging. It describes me really well. I think these types of test are interesting and insightful. You can get to know yourself a little better. It can also help you answer some doubts and questions you've had about yourself. There is always an explanation for your thoughts and feelings. And as weird as it may seem, there are many things we do not fully know about ourselves.
