You know, I have never really been a lucky person when it comes to lucky draws and competitions. After all winning for me has always been a 0.5/100 chance when it comes down to it. I enjoy rendering support to my friends when needed so when I decided to put myself out there and give a go at the GUESS by Female Magazine Blogger Award 2014, imagine my surprise when I was told that I was shortlisted to the top 8. You can find my entry about double denim here.

Writing about fashion and beauty has always come as a second nature to me and truth to be told, I had a full focused fashion and beauty blog back in 2006. I don't like elaborating much on it due to feeling a tinge of sadness but the short version was that it was hacked into and I lost most of my content. So technically you could say that it took all of my will to start anew on this blog for the year 2012.
There are many reasons why each blogger would start their blogging journey but for me it was mostly to share my experiences on beauty products and fashion items with the boys and girls out there who are passionate about the same things that I do or even wanting to try on beauty products for the first time.
You see, falling back into my childhood days I didn't know much about makeup and began sampling cheap drugstore products just to see how it would look on my face. Needless to say I was left scarred with awful breakouts and dark pigmentation.
So I started going online and looking at reviews for cooling masks and I remember taking a look at Tammy's blog at Plus Size Kitten about RMK's Crystal Jelly Mask. This was back in 2009... I think. The thing is about social media, you do not know who you are going to make an impact on and for this I have to thank Tammy for the review for this mask helped my skin tremendously.
So why indeed did I start blogging? To make a similar impact like what Tammy did for me and to teach young girls and boys alike on the usage of beauty products, skincare and fashion. The GUESS by Female Magazine Blogger Award 2014 to me is an acknowledgement that I am finally doing something that I love for all the right reasons. Getting support from my friends and loved ones are an additional bonus which I love and appreciate from the bottom of my heart.
