I've always been a little obsessed about makeup...powdering my nose with my Tinkerbell powder, painting my nails and peeling off the polish later (ladies of the 80's, I KNOW you know what I'm talking about!)...spending my allowance on the sheerest glosses I could get at the drugstore, before I was allowed to wear makeup..and now, where I spend way too much money on eyeshadow, lipstick, and everything in between.
Currently residing in Northern Virginia, I began blogging in December 2007 after searching for makeup tutorials and reviews. I wanted to share my opinion and experience with beauty products with others, as well as providing a glimpse into parts of my life through a website. As a former Xanga member, I would say that I've been blogging in one way or another since 2000.
My makeup and skincare preferences range from drugstore to department store; I'll let you know what does and doesn't work for my skin, whether or not it's a $10 drugstore purchase or a $50 night cream from overseas.
Aside from cosmetics and skincare, I like crafts and making jewelry, and have an interest in photography. I also love trying new foods - especially gluten-free foods for my partner in crime, MG - spoiling our cat Minos, and enjoying a good cup of coffee or tea whenever I can.
