Hello everyone!
Long time no blog.... or anything online!

It's a long story, but I've been dealing with health issues, career advancement, quarter-life crisis, new responsibilities and some soul seeking for the past 8 months or so. Amongst the compilation of problems/issues, my online life was lingering as a big question mark.  I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with my online life. Quit and disappear? Continue limping and produce mediocre crap? I couldn't make up my mind so I deliberately avoided any contact with the online beauty community until I sorted out my personal issues.  Now, I feel like I'm 95% there (in terms of sorting things out), and I'm concluding my long journey of confusion and frustration.

I was pondering really hard if I should even bother making videos and posting on my blog again, as I felt irrelevant to the community.  I had phased out and stopped, while the entire community had kept moving forward.  It would have been a big deal to me 8 months ago.  I would have been stressed out of not making videos, for not posting anything on the blog and not being able to keep up with my expectations I had set for myself.  During the past few months I've made peace with myself and started to loosen up a lot of things that had been holding me behind. I came to a realization that I had started with somewhat of a naive enthusiasm and that happiness was the biggest driving factor.  I had to step out, clear my head and figure out what really mattered to me.  Long story short, the conclusion was really clear - as long as I'm happy and not bothered, I shall keep doing!

Anyway, this is just a rambling post to tell you guys that cl2425 is back as v2.0 (cheesy, heh, but I even put a tiny v 2.0 next to my blog banner :p).
Nothing major is going to change, but my focus will probably shift heavily towards the 'career/working girl' realm as that is my reality for now (FOR NOW - I plan to change this situation too).
I still love makeup, fashion, hair, k-pop, any asian pop culture bits, celebrities and the fun stuff I used to like. It's just... you won't see me recommending blue eye shadow or circle lenses for work appropriate makeup.. or silly things like that.

:)

K, see ya guys in my next post-


Good to be back!
