Revlon and Wet ‘n’ Wild

Editor’s Note – September, 2013

As you can see, I pretty much took the summer off from blogging.  This was an unintended occurrence, but, in hindsight, was necessary in order to attend to personal matters and experience some growth.  I took part of the time to really learn more about the business of blogging, enhance my photography and editing skills, and explored being more of a makeup artist.  I started reading more and am focusing on my writing skills.  The bottom line is: I love the beauty industry and sharing my findings with others.  For years I have been struggling to find my career niche, but I have come to realize this industry is where I want to be.  So, I will remember to take it one post at a time, to keep calm, and blog on!



P.S. – I just love the above image.  I was inspired by my BFF-a writer-who has a similar image as part of her email signature that states, “Keep calm and write on.”
