Happy First Birthday to my blog! 🙂 I started this blog a year ago today as a place to explain my love for makeup and beauty to the blogging community, and to meet other people who share the same interests as I do. I’ve really enjoyed this past year of writing and improving this blog, and I’m really excited to see it grow in the next year.
To celebrate, I thought I’d do a post more personal to myself and tell you 25 things that you probably don’t know about me. I think it’s easy to lose personality if all that you do is describe blush colors, and I really want anyone who reads my blog to feel like they can connect with me. I would love to get to know you all, too, so if you’ve done a post like this, write me a comment so I can check it out! 🙂
25 Facts About Me:
1. I got into the online beauty community by watching Blair and Elle Fowler on youtube. As I got introduced to other youtubers, I found that I really loved a lot of beauty gurus from the UK, many of which had blogs. I figured blogging would be a much easier (and less scary!) way to get involved with the beauty community and share my thoughts with other girls.
2. I have the best boyfriend in the world! He and I have been dating for three years, and he’s one of the best parts of my life.
3. My makeup weakness is bronzer.
4. My makeup addiction is eyeshadow. And brushes. And NARS blushes.
5. I love horses and horseback riding, and I took lessons for about 5 years. I didn’t have much time for riding in the past year, so I didn’t go much at all, but I’m really hoping to get into it again soon.
6. I’m a huge, huge nerd.
7. I want to work in management for a makeup company when I grow up. Go figure.
8. I currently work in retail. It’s interesting.
9. I’m not a very assertive person, and I get embarrassed really easily.
10. I love to read. My favorite book of all time is The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Please read it. It’s amazing.
11. The next big thing on my wish list is a Mini Mac bag from Rebecca Minkoff. Swoon!
12. My favorite perfumes are Forever Red from Bath and Body Works, and Miss Dior Cherie… from Dior.
13. I have a cat, and his name is Herbie. 🙂
14. I am a really messy person, and I love to hoard things, like sentimental movie tickets, old mascaras, and dirty laundry 😉
15. Washing dishes makes me feel sick.
16. I cannot pull off really warm toned eyeshadows.

18. Sad music makes me really uncomfortable, especially if someone else is also listening to it.
19. I love gummy candy and chocolate.
20. I have never had a dog.
