Back In The Saddle

In this photo I am wearing MAC Hot Tahiti lipstick and Urban Decay 24/7 lip liner in Ozone (clear).

Hello out there in Blog Reader Land! I am back from my hiatus. I apologize for the abrupt and lengthy disappearance, and the vague nature of the announcement. I had a lot of personal bullshit going on in my life that frankly took priority over blogging, tweeting, and at some times even putting on makeup at all. My heart wasn’t in it when I was so distracted with everything else. I just needed a freaking break.

Thing is, I missed you guys. :) I absolutely love commenting and tweeting back and forth with you all. And oh my gosh! The comments I got from those who wished me well, expressed concerns, and just plain support were all so appreciated. People talk all the time about the drama in the online beauty community, but I wanted to point out that there is a lot of warmth and love there too. 
There are some changes in my life that I am happy about, too! I have started paying some much-needed attention to my health and fitness. My parents and I have started working out together a few times a week, and I’m watching what I eat. If you’re trying to get fit, I highly recommend MyFitnessPal. My mom and I love it. It’s free, and they have an iphone app (also free) that is very helpful for counting calories. 
Those of you who follow me on Twitter have already heard, but I started a new job this week, too! I am in charge of social media and internet marketing for an insurance brokerage here in OC. It’s really cool so far, and I’m very happy to once again be employed! 
In the past couple weeks I’ve been rediscovering my love for just simply putting makeup on. When I found myself doing it just for the sake of reviewing things, somehow I lost the fun of it. I had to kind of remind myself what it’s like to just play and enjoy. Happily, I have rediscovered the joy and I’m once again having a blast with my little colored potions and powders. In fact, as evidenced in the photos on this post, I’m really enjoying rocking the bright lips lately!
So, I am back. And once again thank you all so much for your patience, kindness, and support. Smooches!!!
