Hola Beautiful —
I hope everyone had a fantastic Valentine’s Day. Mine was perfectly swell and filled with lots of fun happenings….Fashion Week coverage, nice dinner, and cocktails with some of the baddest Beauty Bloggers known to wo-man.
I was particularly pleased as punch (say that three times fast) to meet my Beauty Blog first love, Lianne Farbes a.k.a. TheMakeupGirl. Lianne’s blog is the very first beauty blog I ever read. And I’ll share a closely guarded secret with you….
TheMakeupGirl actually inspired me to start ThisThatBeauty after I was not chosen to be a guest blogger on her site.
After being rejected, a good friend (Hi Shana!) encouraged me to see the rejection as an opportunity to start my own beauty blog. So I picked myself up, wiped away my runny mascara, touched up my foundation…and the rest is her-story 🙂
I shared this story with Lianne and we both had a hearty laugh! So ya see, tis true what “they” say about one door closing and another one opening. Keep knocking…a door’s bound to open!
While it was a great honor to finally meet Lianne, it was also a great pleasure because she was exactly as I’d hoped – an all around class act and a whole lotta fun! Lianne and I chatted over cocktails and had a really nice time. I’m pretty much a newbie to our Total Beauty Blog Network so I really appreciated Lianne’s warm welcome and kind words of encouragement and advice.
Here I am below with the very lovely Lianne. Good times!
