Over a year ago I started this blog because I realized that I had more eyeshadows than anyone in this world could ever sanely need, want, or use.
Unfortunately, both life and laziness got in my way and to my (and possibly your) disappointment, I completely stopped updating.
Now, over a year later, I have come to the realization that I have let life get in my way too many times. I can say this not only for the blog, but for every arena of my existence.
I have made too many excuses for myself.
I know that some people’s lives change in an instant. Some people’s lives change over a course of time. This past week, my life has been steamrolled by a litany of irreversible events - some devastating, some uplifting, some bizarre and benign. At the end of it all, I can clearly see that I can no longer allow myself to forget that the most important person in my life is me.
This all sounds terribly dramatic - it is, but I don’t mean to come off as sounding catastrophic. This should be a joyous thing, because one of my biggest goals at the moment is to resurrect this blog. I’m changing the name, and somewhat changing the goals and scope from what I had initially stated.
Mostly, I just want to share pretty things with you.
My beauty blogging friends have been my biggest source of strength in the past five years. I would not be here today without each and every single one of you. Your love, laughter, and lipstick wishes sustain my spirit every day. This is one-hundred percent true.
More than anything, I want to give to you all some of the joy you give to me.
Also, I want to make you buy things. I am, after all, one of the most notorious enablers in the beauty blogosphere.
There will be taupes, there will be bacon, and there will (possibly) be some blood. Maybe some cute boys too!
But, at the end of the day, there will always be me and my passion...and my exorbitantly large eyeshadow collection.
