Welcome back, readers! We hope you all had a safe and restful holiday season. We are ready to be back with some more beauty, lifestyle, and wellness content this year!
Given the stress of the pandemic and adjusting to both virtual school and apartment life, we felt that taking a hiatus in our content was necessary for our mental wellbeing. This past summer, we studied for the MCAT, the standardized medical entrance-exam, and we moved into our new apartment in Westwood, Los Angeles in September. During fall quarter, we both took on a hefty academic workload, but it was nice to have classes in common that we could study together for. In addition to school, we took the last few months as an opportunity to reflect on our blog content and brainstorm ways to reach a broader audience, such as using platforms like Instagram Reels. This year, we want our content to emphasize the importance of a positive outlook and maintaining mental health, given these difficult times. We plan to post content on a bi-weekly basis, so keep a lookout on our social media for updates!
Given the uncertain nature of 2020, many of us were faced with challenges and obstacles, which required determination and creativity to overcome. With this new year upon us, we are personally striving to use the lessons that we have learned to tackle our adversities with newfound courage and clarity. We hope that this past year has made all of us more thankful for the relationships that we have as well as an appreciation for who we are as unique individuals.
We wish you all a Happy New Year, and stay tuned for our next post on January 15th about breaking out of the beauty box!
