    Beauty Travel Essentials

    Beauty Travel Essentials |

    Over the past two months or so, I’ve done quite a bit of travelling and staying away from home (for more than I’m used to anyway). In mid-November, I went to Ottawa for a weekend. In early December, I went to California for a week. New Years Eve was spent in a hotel downtown, and I recently spent two days in Niagara Falls. One thing that I always pack with me is my makeup bag. Here are my beauty must haves whenever I go away.

    Hello Rebrand!

    Blog Rebrand |

    Announcing my new name change!

    As much as I wanted to stick with my old URL, I felt like it wasn’t really me. Hence I felt the need to rebrand. So I got to thinking about what I could use for my new name. I realize since I already have “KathleenCG_” as my handle on my Instagram, Twitter, AND Pinterest, it only makes sense to have it as my website/blog as well.

    I want to focus mainly on crafts and beauty. However I’m not afraid to branch out and write about other things too, such as music, travel, and lifestyle. My professional work will still have its pages. This is a place for employers to see my work and also get a feel for my personality by reading my blog. My hope is to have a blog that anyone can read and will enjoy. By using my name as the URL, it gives me the chance to switch things up should I decide to change directions in the future.

    When the idea to rebrand hit, the excitement was high to get everything up and running asap. But I realized it’s best to take the time to really perfect things. I really don’t want to have to go through the process of rebranding (again). I had a checklist of things to do, and the launch was not going to happen until everything was completed off the list.

    This blog will be a big commitment to me this 2017. I’m very excited to see where it goes! What are your goals for this year?
