I have been blogging for a little over three years. I have written product reviews, beauty recipes and skincare treatments. But I have never gave a formal introduction about myself. So I thought I would take a few minutes and tell you a little about me.
To begin, I am an only child, and I live in New Orleans, Louisiana. I have lived here all of my life and nowhere else. Both of my parents are deceased. My mother from breast cancer and my father from an acute liver disease. I married in my thirties to a man named Marc, who proposed to me at sunset on the beach of San Juan, Puerto Rico. We have been married for seven years and do not have any children. Instead, we have four cats all of whom were adopted from a shelter.
Marc and I try to travel as much as possible. I have been to Italy, Spain, France, Greece and Mexico. We have also traveled throughout the United States.
I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing with a minor in Psychology. I have a post-baccalaureate certificate in Paralegal Studies and a Master’s in Business Administration.
Prior to being a beauty blogger, I was an insurance defense paralegal. I worked in the legal industry for a little over ten years. I got out of the business mainly because of the stress. When I quit my job at my last law firm I decided to take the jump and become a beauty blogger. It made perfect sense to me since I have been loving makeup and skincare since I was in college. I am not a makeup artist; I am all self-taught. Makeup schools in New Orleans are few and far between. So when I am not posting blogs, I am busy educating myself.
At first blogging was difficult, because I was learning about blogging as I wrote my posts. I will admit that I do not know everything there is to know about the beauty blogging industry. It was a shaky start, but slowly I am learning what and what not to do and I hope that it is beginning to show.
So that is a little about me. If you have any questions, I will try my best to answer them!
