Humblebee & Me is 4!

I’m not sure how it happened, but here we are at the fourth birthday of my little blog! I can scarcely believe that thousands of you awesome people join me here to make messes—when I first got started I couldn’t imagine so many of you could ever care about my little projects.

I took an embarrassing quantity of selfies in order to end up with something where I looked sort of surprised/happy and not surprised/somebody just poked me in the bum. You're welcome... I think.

As is becoming tradition, today I’ll go over a few favourite projects from the last year—my favourites, crowd favourites, favourites for gifting, and the things I’m most proud of.

My Hair Care Routine

I did a post on my skin care routine back in May, and Maggie asked if I could write about my hair care routine as well—so here we are!

Let’s start with what I’m working with. My hair is long, thick, and straight. If you’re into “hair-typing” I’m probably a 1b, but maybe a 1a. It’s generally quite well behaved, and I don’t have any major hair frustrations. I’m also very determined to have low maintenance hair, which is likely a self-fulfilling prophecy. I don’t have my hair cut often, but when I do it’s generally long layers with a touch of shaping around the face.

Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas, happy holidays, and the best of wishes to you and yours from my humble kitchen. Thank you so much for all your support through the year—here’s to more fun, messes, and lessons learned in the coming year!

Happy Third Birthday, Humblebee & Me!

I can scarcely believe it, but Humblebee & Me is three today. I can’t believe it’s been over 1000 days since I launched this site with eager expectations of the world immediately flocking to the three recipes I had online. A lot has changed since then, and I’m super excited that people actually want to read my recipes and try my projects with me 🙂

So, as a bit of a birthday retrospective, I thought I’d take a look back at some of my favourites from the last year—favourite breakthroughs, favourite day-to-day products, favourite gifts, and what not. I’ve published over 600 entries (this is #648!), but these are the ones I’m excited about right now.
