Questions from Coral Star:
  1. What is one beauty product you couldn’t live without? Concealer 
  2. How did you get into blogging? I discovered beauty blogging along with YouTube beauty videos a little over a year ago. I had just moved to Virginia to be with my now fiance, and didn’t know what to do with my time. I was in a new city with few friends and hardly knew my way around. I hadn’t started my full-time job yet so I poured myself into the world of YouTube beauty. I fell in love with the YouTubers and with the idea of creating my own channel. Taking the leap to YouTube is something I have yet to pursue, but I discovered blogging is my ultimate outlet. I work a very stressful job and found that beauty blogging really helped me to decompress and to talk about something I truly love. At face value, beauty blogging may seem superficial, but to me it’s something I’m passionate about and an area where I love to share my knowledge and expertise {still not an expert by any means}.
