"If you're going to wear it, know how to wear it right."
Sephora did it again to me, converting me to an amazing product, when they provided me with a sample of Dr. Brandt's Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer. The first time I used this, I felt like one of those girls on the CoverGirl truBLEND commercials where she swipes the foundation across her cheek, you see some sparkles, and magically her entire face is flawless. Hahaha...
Officially, I think my lips hate me. No matter how much water I drink, how many moisturizing lip products I use, my lips are chronically chapped. I am forever on the hunt for the miracle product that cures all...
My lifelong journey eventually led me to Marc Jacobs Lip Lock Moisture Balm. After using Marc Jacobs Lovemarc Lip Gels and loving them, I was so hopeful that I might actually find THE lip balm that worked for me...
I was so excited to be tagged by Kemples in her new inspiration tag. I particularly love reading my favorite bloggers more personal tags. It's a wonderful (and fun!) way for all of us get to know each other a little better!
So, without further ado, I give you me! in this Inspiration Tag.
WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND STARTING YOUR BLOG?
Since I was little, I've loved all things glamorous. First, I wanted to be a princess (wanted? no, want... =P ), then I wanted to become an actress and/or a model. Of course, life did not play out that way. But just because I couldn't play dress up professionally, didn't mean I needed to give it up entirely. I've always loved the whole beautifying process and fantasized over creating my own blog to share my passion...but I never had the guts to do it. After moving to Seattle, away from family and friends, I really needed to find a creative outlet. I received such positive reactions after mentioning the idea to some close family and friends, I finally felt comfortable taking the plunge. My best friend even helped create my dream logo!
