Ow. And Everyday Minerals March 3, 2008

Well, I’m laying in bed right now hoping the Advil I took helps my aching back. I was bending over blow drying my hair and then I stood up and it felt all tight by my right shoulder blade. Grr. I need to work on flexibility – this wouldn’t be happening to me if I did stretches.

So anyway, Everyday Minerals. I wanted to touch on that briefly before I (probably) do a haul video. Or a review video. I don’t know exactly, lol. Anyway, I’ve really been amazed by the quality of their products at the prices. I’m so excited about everything they have, especially the eyeshadow which is the first mineral (or even loose shadow, other than MAC) that I’ve found that can actually be used dry. I can’t wait to get every shadow they have. 😉 By the way, ED Minerals has a special on until March 10th, to get 8% off your order of $35+. You’ll also get a sample size of the pre-release blush/shadow Mojave Camping and Glass Bottom Boat shadow, both of which will become available March 15th. I have both of them and I REALLY love Glass Bottom Boat. Not sure about the Mojave Camping yet, but we’ll see. 🙂 I’m sooo excited about Glass Bottom Boat for spring though, it’s this beautiful light blue with a teal-ish flash to it.

 

I’m Back! March 2, 2008

I completely abandoned this site and for that I am sorry. Uhg. I shouldn’t start things before I figure out how to incorporate them into my life, lol. But anyhow, I’m back and hope to start creating better content for the blog. I’ve gained a lot more knowledge since this site began which is a very good thing – I didn’t know very much about makeup in the beginning. >_< I knew only that I liked it and wanted to learn more … BUT, like I said, I’ve been learning and I’ve got some new products that I’ve been experimenting with (such as Everyday Minerals, Pure Luxe Cosmetics, Alima Minerals, and NYX – reviews/tuts coming soon, BTW!) and have come a long, looooong way. Don’t get me wrong, I am far from knowing everything (FAR!!), but I feel like I am now more at an intermediate stage rather than being so beginner. If that makes sense …

Anyway, I was completely blown away when I checked this site today to find that it had recieved 4,000+ hits. I still feel shocked. I realized this is something I should try to keep up even if I can’t spend 10 hours a day on it.

I’m also going to start up the YouTube videos again. It took me a little while to get over my camera shyness (I have to thank ExpoTV.com for that!), which was really weird, by the way. The last thing I expected from myself was camera shyness. I’ve grown up with a video camera in my face and my mom and my aunt and both my grandmas take pictures like crazy – I’m no stranger to the camera. But to get in front of it, put on makeup, and then post it on YouTube totally freaked me out at first.

But yeah, I think I have rambled on long enough now. 😉
