I've Been Tagged!

My local beauty blogging buddy (say that 5 times fast!) Nilla Cookie, author of The Daily Cookie, has TAGGED me! I too had no idea what this was all about...until I read her post. I am not much for chain letter type things, but I will comply in the spirit of blogger comraderie. I don't mind sharing a few things about myself, I just don't want to annoy anyone with a TAG that has been tagged in the past. Here are the rules and my responses, beauty related facts about lil old me!

The Rules: Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to then report this on their own blog with their 7 things as well as these rules. They then need to tag 7 others and list their names on their blog. They are also asked to leave a comment for each of the tagged, to let them know that they have been tagged and to read the blog.

Here goes:

(me and my friend Sar before our first holiday cocktail party of the year! Don't we look fabulous?!)

1) I grew up in Seattle and was fortunate enough to be born with stick straight hair that does not frizz in the rain! Talk about lucky! Rain doesn't do much for my lack of volume, but its better than crazy waviness. I didn't even own an umbrella until I moved to the Bay Area 5 1/2 years ago.

2) I have never gotten my eyebrows waxed (I'm extremely new to waxing elsewhere...its not as bad as I thought!) but I get compliments all the time on my tweezing skills.

3) I didn't wear blush until I was 21. Wow-zers, I was missing out! Hello sunshine, I'm awake! I think I tried bronzers around the same time too. Miraculous products, I tell ya.

4) I love to try new products (duh, if you've ever read this blog.) but I can't seem to get enough MAC. They just know how to do color. It really is like going to an art supply store for your face, so much fun.

5) I never enjoyed writing until I started this blog. It was my least favorite thing in school for sure. But now I look forward to typing out my latest gushings about products I've discovered. Boy, things do change and for the better!

6) My guilty (non-beauty) pleasures are: wine, Gossip Girl, The Hills, cheese, and gummy bears! Terrible right?! haha.

7) I work in finance right now, but I am looking to make a major career move into something beauty related. I love living in San Francisco and I just know there are opportunities in the beauty industry here for me, I just have to search them out! If you have any bits of advice, I'm all ears!

I am now tagging these 7 bloggers (I tried to find new blogs but sorry if you've been "hit" before): Beauty And Bangles, Bellavita Style, Make Her Up, Hello Dollface, Shades of U, The Non-Blonde, and Sugarshock.

Tag Lovely!

Hey Beth!

Dang girl, I wish I had tweezing skills like you! One of my best girlfriends in Orange County was a tweeze-master to - I always envied her :)

Funny we have some things in common - I moved here almost 6 years ago and also didn't start wearing blush until I worked at the makeup counters at Macy's. Boy, those cosmetics ladies definitely schooled me and I thank them for my beauty education!

Hope you're having a great day! Stay dry! :)
