Carol in a Page Turns 1 & My Current Crushes

Today’s my baby’s 1st birthday!!!

Hmm, no, I don’t have a child I’ve never told you about…

I’m talking about my blog!

You know, Carol in a Page kinda feels like a baby to be… I mean, I created it, I fed it new content to help it grow, I’ve had a few sleepless nights because of it, and it made me kinda proud when because of it I got the chance to work for the über talented Karen on her amazing Makeup and Beauty Blog.

To celebrate this little achievement, I’d like to share with you some of my favorite posts from the past year… You know, in case you need some (hopefully) giggle-inducing reading material over the weekend.

In other news, you may have noticed that I haven’t been very active on here over the past month. I’ve had a lot on my mind and wasn’t in the right mood to write the type of posts I like to write. I usually try to make my personality shine though my writing, and had I written more in June, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have liked what would have shined through.

I’m not sure that made any sense, but anyways, it’s a different month now and I hope I can make it a better one.

I don’t really have the usually monthly favorites to talk about, but I’d like to share with you an eye-lip combo I’ve been wearing a lot lately (which for me is pretty unusual, since I like to change my makeup on a daily basis).

NARS Duo Eyeshadow Isolde YSL Rouge Pur Couture The Mats 208 Fuchsia FeticheWearing the NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Isolde on my eyes and the YSL Rouge Pur Couture The Mats in 208 Fuchsia Fetiche on my lips. You may read how I got this natural sun-kissed look on Makeup and Beauty Blog

The NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Isolde and the YSL Rouge Pur Couture The Mats in 208 Fuchsia Fetiche are my all-time favorites in their respective product categories, and I absolutely adore how they look together, especially when paired with a sun-kissed complexion. This was definitely my favorite look in June, and if you follow me on Snapchat (carolinapage), you’ll probably have seen that I even wore it at my mom’s wedding (June’s biggest highlight – it was nice seeing her that happy!).

How was your June? And do you have anything exciting planned for July?

    The most exciting thing in July is the upcoming move, but not really fun-exciting, more stressful-exciting, I fear.
    Other than that: Happy blogoversary. I always feel like you have been around much longer, because your post and pictures are so professional. I guess you just skipped the whole awkward blogging phase.
    I hope your mind has cleared and everything came to a positive end, and I can´t wait for many more years of Carol in a Page.

    Happy blog anniversary and wow, has it only been a year? I thought you’ve been flogging for much longer! I do love that eye and lips combo, it’s easy to see why you wear the look a lot, you look radiant.

    On to the reason why you’re not as active here, I think that happens to the best of us, that we go through a creative dry spell and hopefully July will be much better for you. xx

    Happy Blogiversary Carol! You have accomplished so much for your blog and I couldn’t be any more proud of you 🙂 I am loving the lipstick. It reminds me of MAC’s “All Fired Up”. July for me will be eventful. I recently got my engagement photos done and will be seeing them in 2 weeks, and I work at the fair, which will open this Friday, so it’s going to be madness this whole month!

      Thank you, Hannah, you’re the sweetest!!! 🙂
      All Fired Up is another one of my all-time favorites. It is a little less bright and more matte than the YSL one, but they’re definitely in the same color family.
      I’m so curious about your engagements pictures, do you think you’re going to share them on your blog?
      Good luck with the fair!

    Happy Bloganniversary! Sometimes life takes over and it gets harder to focus on one thing, I hope you will be with us more in July and other months as well. Celebrate that you’ve made it this far, I remember your 6 months post where you said “most of the blogs don’t last that long” and here you are with your 1 year old baby 🙂

    And going through a phase where writing doesn’t come naturally is very understandable, especially if you’ve been going through things in your life. I hope you have an easier time this month!
