Who Am I?

I started this journey as a complete beauty novice. In the world of style and fashion, I've been living under a rock.  For years. But not any more.

I'm on a quest, an exploration. I aim to discover my own style, and what products and techniques work best for me. This blog will be a testament to my journey. A log of everything I learn and a platform to share what I love and hate along the way.

Why am I so new to the wild world of beauty?

My mother was never a big purveyor of makeup. Everything I learned about beauty, growing up, I learned from magazines and friends. So it was easy for me, after my children were born, to fall into the sweat-pants and tee-shirt wearing doldrum where makeup was a four-letter word and the extent of my fashion was which pony-tail holder to choose.

I have a daughter now. She may only be a year old, but I'm thinking about her future. I know how rough the road was for me always being behind the eight-ball with fashion and makeup. Does anyone remember the MC Hammer pant trend of the early 90s? Yeah, that was all me. Ugh. My goal today is to learn the best ways to care for my skin, my hair and to put the best foot forward in the world. And I'm going to pass everything I learn on to my daughter.

I've embarked on a journey. I'm starting all over again at the young age of 34. I'm learning about skin health and what regime works best for my skin type. I'm learning how to keep my hair healthy and how to grow it out. I'm learning makeup 101, from scratch. I've subscribed to a few monthly beauty subscriptions in order to expose myself to new products and techniques. And I'll be sharing what I learn here.

If you're young or old, and are starting out in this world of beauty and self-care, welcome along for the ride. I'm hoping it will last a lifetime.

And don't forget to follow me on other social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. to get a day-to-day glimpse of my journey. The relevant links are on the blog.

Thank you for your time, and stay beautiful my friends! xoxox
