I have been kicking around the idea of a blog for some time. My facebook feed is getting too cluttered with multiple updates a day when I've found something cool for my friends. So, here we are.
I gotta say, first, I really hate the word "blog". I think it makes me think of someone lazy saying "bog", which I then equate with a toilet... But I guess we could argue that's exactly what this is.
As a first post, "what is this whole thing about?"
It's about beauty.
It's about saving time and money.
It's about vintage living.
It's about a mend-and-make-do mentality.
It's about being glam on a dime.
I've been in the beauty industry for quite some time and I've seen it all from buzzing a kid's hair in a Detroit alley to being paid 150 bucks for "night out" makeup because the client didn't own eyeliner. Even though I'm not famous for what I've done, I'd put my thoughts next to the guys and gals you see on TV and in magazines.
That's just the kind of ego I have.
In the end, I'm pretty sure this is going to end up a disjointed mess of product reviews and raging against modern consumerism that will eventually be used as evidence for some kind of long-term nuthouse commitment... But we should all have fun getting there.
