Ooh la la-B’livinn

The beauty market is filled with such a myriad of  products that it feels like I am taking on a herculean task any time I want to share a new discovery on my blog. Though not necessarily a hoarder,  I very much enjoy stacking up my bathroom’s cubbies with ‘potions’ and lotions that promise a dewy look, softer hands, or a special glow. Why would anyone want to read about this? Do I have time to take pictures? Is this worth me sitting down and writing a whole paragraph about it? The answer to all three questions has to be a resounding YES! Every time, before I even consider writing a post.

It’s amazing how much I have come to depend on bloggers to learn about new trends, beauty products, home décor, accessories and clothing. I still read established websites such as style.com and vogue.com. They will always be a part of my fashion ‘research’.
