Blog Birthday, October Favorites, & Gidget

Today marks my blog’s 4th birthday. Hard to believe that for four years I’ve kept up one single hobby! And turned it into a business! My how time flies when you’re having fun. I hope you’ve been having fun, too. I wish I had a screenshot of Pretty Shiny Sparkly’s original design…boy that was a doozy!

Today I’m sharing my October favorites with you in a video (above) and Gidget makes a special appearance somewhere in the clip so make sure you watch it all!

    Oh no! I’m sad to hear that night shift is sucking the life out of you! :( I’m about to start a new night shift job in a few weeks. I hope I can find a way to adjust, since I have to be on nights for at least a year. . .eek! Also, how do you apply Cabana Boy? It looks so pretty and natural on you!! I feel like when I wear it I look too “done up” even when I use an extremely light hand and duo fiber brush.
    One last thing: Gidget is the cutest little puppy ever!!

      My sister in law was on nights for a year after she graduated from nursing school….it sucks but she said she got used to it.

      For cabana boy, it’s pretty potent, and to be honest for on-camera use it’s perfect because you have to apply more blush than you would in person for film work since it gets so washed out. But I definitely use a softer, looser, fluffier blush brush for this blush rather than a stiffer/denser one, simply because it is so potent. So you’re on the right track! But yes, appearances can be deceiving on film!

    I share your love for the Sage/Westheimer Walgreen’s! It’s AMAZE! They have impossible-to-find Klorane Dry Shampoo there too

    Happy 4 years! Can’t imagine the blog world without you!

    I want to hear about the new volume technique…I need it! And you are my #1 go-to for product recommendations, techniques, etc. I believe every word you say!

    And OMG, wish I had gotten this on video…while I was watching your video, Macy was siting here practically in my lap, and as soon as you put Gidget on, she started staring at the screen and tilting her head. Too funny! She totally noticed Gidget, who is beyond cute!

    Happy blogaversary! Has it really been 4 years?! I am truly glad I discovered your blog. You were one of the first bloggers I really started following and connecting to when I first started blogging. You truly prove that hard work, dedication and a true love for what you do can take you anywhere! Never change girl! :)
