Feeling really happy and overwhelmed with all the love and support I have received recently from people for The Best Beauty Blog.
1. Followers Love
Last week, I reached over 100 GFC followers and I reached over 10,000 hits on the blog! YAY! This may not sound like a major thing for many beauty blogs out there, but for me, it’s a BIG THING!!! Thank you so much! A giveaway will be coming shortly just to thank everyone.
2. Beauty Blogger Love
The beauty blogging community is so warm and welcoming and I have made a number of friends with beauty bloggers and PR’s (especially Tina from FACE OF AUSTRALIA) through blogs, Twitter and Facebook.
3. Hubby Love
Beauty blogging is more difficult than it looks. I have cluttered up the house with beauty products everywhere but my Hubby has been very patient and tidied up my mess. Also, taking photos is one of the greatest challenges for me. The Husband has been so supportive and he built me a DIY homemade light box to help me take more professional-looking photos of products. How sweet of him! I think I need more light though to make it totally work, but it’s awesome.
Look at the cool photos I can do now! (Okay, they are not that fantastic…but I am not a pro photographer…)
4. Mummy Love
My Mum could possibly be the best mum in the world! Ok, in my world! First of all, her English and internet skills are limited but when I left Scotland for Australia, she opened a Facebook account (read all about it from this link) to keep in touch with me. And now, she has started reading my blog and leaving me a lovely supportive Facebook message. I am so blessed. And I miss her so much!!! *tears well up*
Anyway, I hope you all have a great week ahead. I am currently struck down with a mysterious oral illness which is making my whole mouth and upper teeth sore on the right side. My immune system is down. Boohoo!!!
I was supposed to be working this week but I have called in sick for tomorrow. The only good things to this painful illness are that I get to catch up on reading everyone’s blogs and getting more much-needed beauty sleep and watching America’s Next Top Model and True Blood.
By the way, as you have gathered, this is not a typical beauty blog post but more of a personal blog post. I don’t know about you but I like reading beauty blogs where you get to know the blogger behind the blog – but if this is a turn-off, please let me know in the comments and I will refrain from doing personal beauty-related posts in the future.
