Hair Tutorial Video and a Thank You

i made this video almost exactly ONE year ago! i can't believe a year has gone by already. technically my blog has been On Air for about a year and a half, but i only consider myself to have full time blogged for one year (baby, move, job change = no blogging). i have loved blogging, i enjoy reading your comments, and i like the challenge of coming up with new and creative ideas to share.

if you are new to this blog, here's a little about me:
  1. i cry a little and laugh a lot. sometimes it's the other way around.
  2. i love having friends and consider myself lucky for the friends i have.
  3. makeup is not my life, but it makes my life brighter. i step into a makeup store and my heart skips a beat. my pulse races and my breath quickens. seriously. sounds a little crazy but i have been this way my whole life. advice in life is always, "find a job that you love". i found it.
  4. i love my family more than anything. i adore them. Tman is hands down, the best thing that has ever happened to me. the other night, he kissed me on the lips and said "i have the greatest thing to ever come out of the Tri-Cities" and he meant it.
if you are new to blogging (or are a blogging enthusiast) you know success can be measured in many ways. some of the successes of my blog are:
  1. my stats are always improving. the longer i blog, the better response i get from my readers, new and old. thank you!
  2. i receive positive feedback from the companies who provide me with products to review. i work with some awesome PR people and they have been so generous to continue providing Blushing Basics with products for review. thank you!
  3. my friends i have made. i love making new friends and i appreciate all of my family and friends who support my blogging habit, as well as refer me to their friends. thank you!
i hope you can see from my list that none of this would be possible without YOU. so a huge hug and kiss from me to you for helping me do this. i continue to set goals to meet, my next goal is for 500 followers. once i reach that benchmark i want to do a great big giveaway. bigger than anything we have yet to see. so leave me a response and tell me what you would like to see as a giveaway and i will do my best to make it an extra special thank you.

and that my friends, is a year in blogging.


ps. happy birthday to my brother Greg (a day early), to my SIL Stacy Ann, my sweet little buddy Amelia, and hopefully? baby Bowcutt.
