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!
