ON JUDGING MYSELF FOR BEING AN ABSENT BLOGGER

Well hey there! It’s been a while and I’m sorry, please forgive me and all that jazz. What with juggling a full time job, running my own business and ensuring my cat got enough food to remain morbidly obese, the blog kind of fell by the wayside. And to be totally honest I got a bit jaded. I was already slightly over the way the marketing departments of makeup companies were using social media influencers (bloggers/facebookers/instagrammers) to continue making women feel less of a person if they weren’t using all of the products everyday. And more than slightly over social media influencers trying to come up with the next big makeup trend so they would get more hits and thus free product/sponsered posts/advertising revenue. The whole thing reeks of unsavoury cash to me. But I’m not a natural born sales person. I can’t oooh and ahhh over something I don’t believe in, something I don’t believe will actually fill a need for someone. So where does that leave me. I’ve regrouped. I’ve focused on wedding season and my brides. I’ve quit a job that was draining the life force out of me and regained my spark and zest. And I’ve decided that the trend of makeup trends (yes I believe that has become a thing) is even more reason to keep blogging and dispelling the marketing departments and beauty influencers BS. To help you navigate this increasingly crazy world of beauty. Without twenty products and hour long tutorials. Because that isn’t sustainable for the majority of us every day. So I’m back, but I’m not promising to be regular....
