haha so some of these things are not like the others. These first three insanely awful ugly shots are from a month and two months into having this blog. They are from Sept/Oct 2010. The rest are from the Summer of 2014.
So I am posting these atrocities to show how far I have come. And I have come a longgggggg way.
I don't even know what I was thinking (or who let me out of the house). Beyond I was experimenting and learning. And that this was the start of a journey.
I'd really liked makeup before I started this blog, but this blog has been a journey and a journey starts with a single step. These are some of those. This blog is when my like, went to love, went to passion. Went to being serious. Went to improving.
And improve I have.
Improve I most certainly I have.
I still am learning.
I still can do better.
But I have come a long way.
And I should be proud of that.
My life has changed immensely in four years. Sometimes I've looked back at photos (personal and blog) over this time period and I wonder if I'm even the same person. I mean clearly I am, but sometimes I look at that person from four years ago and I wonder who she is.
In those four years I have lost, and I have won.
I got out of a long term relationship of five years.
I deserved better.
I forged new relationships.
I choose to live on my own.
(with my children (cats)).
I started modeling for indie cosmetic companies.
I have had crisis and I have persevered.
I may still be in the thick of some things but I will come out the other side somehow, because I always do. And I always will.
And since this is my blogs anniversary there will be a giveaway, it will be posted later, but it's a good one. Stay tuned for that.
And I want to also take a moment to be grateful for all of the wonderful people I have met in the beauty world. To think without makeup we wouldn't have met, that would be a sad sad thing. Sparkles have brought us together.
I am thankful to know you.
And I am also thankful for my readers and followers, you mean so much to me.
Thank you for staying with me thru the good and the bad. <3
