I started this blog about six months ago as a way to offer unbiased opinions on beauty products, share my beauty adventures, and also as a way to help women (and men) embrace their own unique beauty and voice, not just regurgitate what’s hot in the media. I am so happy to have you all along for the ride. I would have never dreamed six months ago that an editor at Allure would be reading my blog, let alone select it as an alternate finalist in the Beauty Blogger of the Year contest. You can vote for your favorite Allure beauty blogger contestants starting Monday, April 23rd and will be entered to win some swanky prizes for voting.

I leave you with some motivational quotes because I’m feeling kind of cheesy and reflective right now.
“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.” ~e.e. cummings
“Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.” ~Judy Garland
And to sum it all up, the incomparable Eleanor Roosevelt: “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”
Ahhhhhh!! How exciting!
Thanks so much! Life is full of interesting twists and turns.
Loved your quotes. Don't give up! You have a talent for writing and your enthusiasm for make-up is inspiring.
