Oh, hello

It has been a while, hasn’t it? Despite all my best intentions to return to blogging, one thing or another has gotten in the way.

And there’s so much to do to fix it up. (Damn you, Photobucket extortioners. Where did my widgets go?!)

But I was reminded by Facebook that I started this blog 4 years ago, so I felt like I needed to make a post. There will be more content, hopefully sooner than later. I’ve gotten some new indie products I’m crazy about and want to share.

So, I don’t know if anyone is still reading, but if you are…watch this space!

Oh, and so this isn’t all just content, here’s a recent photo of my hair color experimentation!

Birchbloggers Cynthia Rowley Spring Beauty Line Event

Affilier Gratuit

cynthia rowley spring beauty line A couple of weeks ago, Birchbox, the monthly beauty box with the amazing points program,* hosted an event for their Birchbloggers at the Cynthia Rowley boutique. On display and for play was the Cynthia Rowley Spring Beauty Line. And I was one of the lucky few who won the entire collection to review.

(*In case you’re not familiar with it, Birchbox is a monthly subscription service where, for just $10 a month, you receive a box full of deluxe-sized and travel-sized samples. You receive Birchbox points for every purchase you make and every review your write, which can be redeemed in their store. For every 100 points you earn, you get $10 a full-sized product order.

Shani Asks You Sundays – Blog Pet Peeve

Here is this week’s question:

What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to blogs (of any kind)?

For me, my absolute biggest pet peeve is when the blogging system doesn’t notify you of replies to comments. It just drives me nuts when you can see the blogger clearly invested in a nice theme, nice design elements, is quite successful, yet if you want to know if they’ve replied to you, you must go and constantly check the entry. Grrrrrrr.

How about you?

The Liebster Award x 2

I am honored and touched to have been nominated for the Liebster Award twice within a week or so, first by Anna of Beauty by Shortylegs and then by Dea of Her Deauty.

The Liebster Award is a way of giving accolades to blogs with 200 or less followers. Basically, most of us who work hard at our blogs and aren’t famous for it.
