Hello, beauties! Just wanted to give a quick hello while we're prepping for our yummy supper on the eve of 2012!! I am so excited for the upcoming year! I have big hopes, bigger dreams and the drive to make it happen!!!! (Positive thinking, girls!!) I hope you all have the best night (safely!) And we'll chat about how to disguise the after-effects of said nights next year!!!!
Welcome back to my cozy, little, happy-space! I have recently experienced the best hiatus from social media/video-making/worrying that any girl could imagine. My salon just reached its second birthday, the hubby and I have committed to eating as healthy as possible (and feel so much better!), and school is out for the summer.
I didn't really decide to do a big "shut down," but just kind of let it happen. I felt completely overwhelmed and under-focused, and just unsure of the direction some paths seemed to be taking me. I have to say it worked better than I expected. I feel that old spark of motivation coming back, with renewed purpose and direction. I highly recommend a little tech break, even if it makes you feel like you're totally missing out.
I ran in the Glassfest 8K again this Memorial Day weekend. This is usually my rip-off-the-bandage race for the Wineglass Half-Marathon at the end of September. Earlier in the year, I started doubting my driv…
Have you ever realized how easy it is to neglect your skin in the winter? Actually, I've been obsessing over my thirsty, dehydrated skin all season. I have jammed and crammed so many creams, emulsions, serums, and balms into my cabinet that it looks more like a derm store than a beauty closet! But I swear, this is not an ad!!!
The best products I have found for delicate peau have been the Farsali serums. I finally broke down and bought the trial bottles at Sephora, one unicorn essence and one 24-carat gold infused serum. Each mini, at $20 a pop, is a glorious glass bottle with an apothecary-style dropper. I am a sucker for old-timey glass bottles. I fell in love with everything about these serums the first time I applied them to my face. And, it's time for a refill--this time I'm going to pony up for the full size portions. They really figured out how to bottle a skin-saving miracle here.
In my latest video, I also show you what bronzer/highlighter combo I've…
When I signed up for Blogger more than a year ago and created Beauty by Lindsay, I was looking for a way to force myself into the world with my writing. An outlet for all the extra stuff that was slamming around inside my cranium! An extension of the me I knew was still trying to find her way!
What I have found is so much more. I never could have imagined I would be where I am now...a part of an ever-growing beauty-blogging community, engaging in conversations with beauty-junkies from everywhere! And I have found a confidence in myself I never knew existed...do you know how long it took me to actually TELL people I wrote a blog!?!? Hahaha!
And I have found a renewed passion for my career as a hair stylist/makeup artist! This has been such an awesome year! I have had such encouragement from people in all arenas, I am just so grateful! And with my youtube channel in addition to the blog, I am really so inspired and excited about what I'm doing! I think I have become a much better …
