Hello all lovely readers, I have created a reader survey and I hope you can take the time to answer some questions which help me greatly in planning and producing better content for short, small, & sweet.
I started short, small, & sweet in 2010 to document my life in Japan, and then it turned into a beauty blog as of September 2013. It’s been slightly more than a year of consistent blogging now, and I am thankful for all your support. This is my first time doing a reader survey, and I’ll be truly grateful if you could take less than 10 minutes of your time to fill out the answers. Most of them are multiple choice, so no need to rack your brains! Tell me what you like or don’t like about short, small, & sweet – your honest feedback would mean a lot to me and the future direction of this blog. xo
p.s. I will be sure to share the results with you all!
If you don’t know what #pemjo is, it’s the affectionate hashtag for Pemberley Jones, a green beauty blogger turned entrepreneur who created her online store earlier this year. And if you have not ordered anything from #pemjo yet, you’re missing out…
On this quirky, polka-dotted goodness.
#pemjo was offering free shipping last week, so I took the chance to order some stuff which I don’t necessarily need would be nice to have (*hoarder mode). Nothing too crazy, just a small haul but still worth the excitement – must be the polka dots doing their magic.
As a beauty blogger and erm, product hoarder, I do admit that my stash has been pretty crazy lately. To encourage and remind myself to use up more products – and prevent them from maintaining bottom-of-the-dresser status, in today’s quick round-up I’m sharing a few products that I’ve started or planning to incorporate into my routine.
I was tagged by Stephanie of S Green Juice to do The “Me Time” Tag! Me time is very important, in my opinion. There’s nothing better than taking the time to pamper yourself and do anything and everything you want.
What do you watch or read during me-time?
I don’t watch TV except for when my favorite shows like The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones is on. Oh, I also like Project Runway which I catch-up via the cable’s On-Demand. Else, Youtube videos are the way to go, and I watch both green beauty and conventional beauty videos.
Other than catching up on blog reading, I’m trying to get back into the habit of reading books regularly, which I’m picky with nowadays. I lean towards more thought-provoking fiction and recently taken a liking to self-help/improvement books, and I just finished reading Charles Duhigg’s The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business.
What do you wear during me time?
PJs of course! Especially now it’s winter time, I wear layers even at home and a good set of flannel PJs is necessary. And then there’s this comfy knit cardigan I bought in Japan which I can live in it. Knee-high socks are also mandatory. Continue reading →
It’s pretty much winter in New England now and it’s the time of the year when I’m all wrapped up in layers of clothing, even at home.
Having perpetual dry skin, I am no stranger to hoarding body oils and scrubs. Once out of the shower, I have to immediately slather on a body product to prevent my skin from drying out. Today I’m sharing a few body products I’ve been enjoying – some of them smell like some delectable desserts, just what we like for winter and the holiday season.
I love quinoa. My husband isn’t exactly a fan but he said he likes these quinoa cakes! Quinoa contains high amounts of protein, making it the healthiest grain out there. This recipe is easy to make, if you have some cooked quinoa already lying around. If not, it is still easy – you’ll just need a little extra time to prepare the quinoa and let it cool a little beforehand.
Oh, there’s no frying required (we don’t need that extra oil, do we), these go into the oven to become golden and crispy.
