For all your beauty advice…
Hi! Remember me? It’s been a while, hasn’t it? How long has it been? Well, by my calculations, it’s been over 5 months since I last did a review. I have made random comments here and there on my Facebook and Twitter pages, but a full-on review has not been forthcoming in a long time. Why? you may ask. Well, life got in the way. Oh how I wish I had the life of the cute little darling on my Facebook profile picture…Princess Brooke sitting at a vanity, playing with products all day. In a perfect world, maybe, but not in my world.
A lot has happened in the 5 months since my last review. First of all, I got a new position at work, and it’s taken every ounce of my brain power to learn my new position. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job. It is the job I have wanted for a long time, and it’s finally mine, so I’m handling it with care, and devoting 110% of myself to learn the job, and be the best I can possibly be. It’s kind of a big deal. It’s been very “Brooke-consuming” so that’s one reason I fell off the face of the earth. I also have 2 children, one of them a teenager now, who I love dearly, but I have to be honest in saying, they suck any energy out of me that I may have left over from my day at work. Suffice it to say, they are totally worth it, but they need me, and they need my 100% attention once I get home. Let’s not forget I am also married, so figuring out a date night, or even 5 minutes alone with my husband, who works opposite shifts than I do, is time-consuming as well.
Ok, we’ve established the basic facts…I am human and my life got crazy. But, I want everyone to know that just because I have been MIA, doesn’t mean I haven’t thought about all the amazing support and feedback I have gotten from my readers and from vendors who ask for my reviews. I am getting back into this. I have found out that I miss it…I miss giving my unsolicited opinion, offering advice, and trying product, product, and more product! My love for this industry and all things Beauty has not withered away and died. It is in me, alive and kicking and I want to be a part of this world again. I would love to resurrect Q&A Monday, but I need your help on that. If you have Q’s, I have A’s, so send them my way, and let me greet you on Monday mornings. I am here for you, I have advice/opinions on just about everything in this industry, and if I haven’t learned about something yet, you can bet your bottom dollar I really, really want to!
So, tell me what you’ve been up to in the last 5 months. What products have you discovered? What products have you decided you can live without? What products are you wanting to try, but not sure it’s worth the investment? As always, I look forward to your thoughts! You can email me any questions or comments to email@example.com
And in the words I have missed saying….You’ve Been Beautified!
