I’m taking a step back from the beauty and fashion banter (not for too long, as I know that’s what you’re all here for!) and going to get real for a moment. Although this blog was started for an Online Journalism class at my college, it has turned into much more. Beauty and fashion for me is an escape, as I’m sure it is for many of you. I am what my friends refer to as a stress monkey: I work, intern, commute and take full-time classes, and although it seems like I’m doing everything, sometimes it feels like it’s amounting to a whole lotta nothing but severe aggravation.
Writing used to be my out from my anxiety ridden daily routine, but I found myself losing time to write. This blog has forced my passion for writing back to the forefront, along with my equal love of beauty and fashion. I know many people view beauty and fashion as a materialistic, fame-hungry business (but really who doesn’t want to look like Amrezy!? by the way I don’t think she’s any of the above, only love for those girls), but seriously, beauty and fashion are an art and an escape. This hobby has connected me to people and taken me out of whatever hangry, pissed off at the world mood I’m in. I forget about the stress of work and school and just paint my face. I tell my friends that doing my makeup is relaxing, this is because it allows me to have fun and really pull the creativity out again. I’m hoping this blog does this for you, and with that I promise to keep bringing content and looks.
The future of this blog will have the standard fashion and beauty looks, more reviews and dupes and hopefully videoed makeup and fashion looks by me (but right now that lighting is damn expensive!). I also want to touch on escaping your reality through makeup and fashion while incorporating tips on how to deal with being an everyday college aged girl. So I hope you keep reading and we can write my story, and yours, together.
