When I first started this blog, about 8 months ago, I did it with the intention to provide more information to beauty lovers here in my home country of Trinidad & Tobago and maybe the Caribbean at large. But now I love meeting new persons from all over the world. It always amazes me when I get an email or comment from anyone.
Another reason for starting my blog was Temptalia. I stumbled on her website about a year ago and was indeed impressed at her dedication to her blog with providing her audience with in-depth reviews. I am nowhere near her about 5-6 blog posts a day but she gives me inspiration to reach for the stars.
Another way she inspired me was with her challenges. Recently she held a spring nail art challenge and I entered my Flower Fields design and then she featured a spring makeup challenge and I entered my Soft lily look. Both were featured on her site and I couldn’t be more thrilled to see my work there!
What makes me even more excited is the fact that I incorporated locally made makeup and nail polish in my designs. The Soft Lily look used eyeshadows from Ambrosia Cosmetics and my Flower field nail art used Nail Fusion stripper polish made by Sacha Cosmetics. What a way to put a small country on the map! I really feel accomplished and when I had writer’s block or nothing new to review, there was always some piece of my home country to spur me on.
I do want to also thank my readers whose little comments make a big difference in my life and give me more encouragement to do better. And all those blog awards! What can I say! I’m speechless.
So are you up for a challenge! Temptalia has a new challenge on Disney nail art. I’m sticking this one out to allow you to submit your work, be featured and get inspired to do better.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful journey with me so far. I look forward to continuing on with you!
