Yikes! Has it really been this long since I last published a post? I feel so ashamed but life has a habit of getting in the way and the longer I stayed away, the harder it was to come back. Those of us who blog nowadays clearly do it for the love and I truly do love it. While I was away, so many people continued to visit the blog, share posts, and comment. This blew me away and it reminded me of the reasons I love to blog. The majority of hits to my blog are from people searching for “x” swatch “on dark skin” and that was my overriding reason to start this blog. It’s so frustrating trying to find swatches of popular products on different skin types and I wanted to do my bit to make it a little bit easier.
I have a ton of beauty series coming up that I’m excited about and I hope you will be too. I have a million and one foundations that I’ve been meaning to do a “foundation series” since forever and I’m eager to bring that to you. I’m also looking forward to shining a light on lesser loved brands that I love.
I also wanted to offer my opinion on the numerous books I read and I am endeavoring to offer better content in that regard. I read a pretty wide range of books but in the last few years, I’ve made an effort to read more books by women, and more books by non-white authors. That’s not to say that’s all I read but I think it’s always a good idea to expand your exposure to common fare in a considered manner. There’s so much wonderful stuff out there and sometimes you just have to make the effort to find it!
I have a new blog header that I feel reflects the spirit of the blog. It was designed by the lovely Emmy and she was an absolute pleasure to work with. I highly recommend contacting her for your design needs.
So here I am, back again. Thank you for sticking around and I hope you continue to support me in this venture!
