Hey! I am a 25-year-old beauty enthusiast and I welcome you to The Fantasia! I am your unconventional geeky girl-next-door with a passion to create and turn visions into reality by day, and your overachiever learner by night.

theFantasia is a travel and beauty blog about the latest/greatest in the beauty world. Written by your best friend and friendly girl-next-door neighbour, I hope that the content of this blog, whether it be talking about recent hauls or product reviews/swatches, can provide inspiration for you to shop wisely and frugally, and splurging when the product merits such praise/money!
[show-map id=’1′] Being budget-conscious when traveling is something else I enjoy sharing. Having done trips across Africa, Europe, and the Middle East as well as paying for everything out of my own pocket, and savings, I am here to share with you the things I’ve learned in the process.

Fantasia (n): The fantasia is a musical composition with its roots in the art of improvisation. Because of this, it seldom approximates the textbook rules of any strict musical form.

I can typically be found constantly tweaking and updating the look of the blog, tweeting about anything and everything I find interesting online, pinning things on my wishlist, checking my email trolling Google+ and finding other blogs to follow.
