Some of you may or may not know, but… before I started talking beauty, I was mostly a cooking AND a childhood memories kind of blog (oh, yes, and a full-time author – have you read my book?). Well, that didn’t work out well for me because I lost interest in cooking because I spent most of my time staring (and drooling over – much to my dismay!)  at swatches and then I really started stalking each and every OPI collection, and I gave myself a “day” off from writing my book (still sitting on book #2, you guys!). Then, I learned about Indies, and my love grew tremendously. I fell hard for these homemade beauties – at first, very skeptical – but then realizing that this was better! Oh, and did I mention, I had a little fall out with nail polish during my pregnancy! I would get EXTREMELY nauseous while looking at swatches – me thinks it’s because of all the scrolling and motion sickness leading to the morning sickness. I should’ve known at that moment I was carrying a boy, but then again, there are some really talented men beauty bloggers, too!! Anyways, back to the point. When my son was maybe 5 months old, I changed the path of my blog altogether! It was a risk since I had such a small baby, but it was worth it! I found all of you! And, you found me! And, because of YOU, we’re celebrating my 2 year blogiversary (on February 17th) as a beauty blogger for Taneja’s Bride. Gosh, I love you and all that jazz! That’s why I had to make this extra special for you, too! So, here’s what I have for you!
