I think this may be one of the hardest things I have ever had to write about – me, myself and I! I wanted to formally introduce myself (nice to meet you!), explain why I started this beauty blog and share why I am SO fascinated by the world of beauty.
First and foremost, I wanted to discuss my name and how to pronounce it. It has been such a tongue twister for many that it has come to the point that I will answer all variations! My name is Yasmin Abdo and it is pronounced = Yaz-meen Ab-doh. Pretty simple! Now no one has an excuse to mess it up!
Secondly, I wanted to explain why I started this blog. I have been researching and experimenting in all aspects of the beauty world since I was a little girl. I have always loved trying out new makeup and started experimenting when I was just 10 years old. Hair colour and I are acquaintances too (we go back to the 6th grade!) Do I think everyone needs to break into the beauty world at such a young age? No, of course not, but I just want to express how long this has been my passion! Also, let me emphasize that it has not always been pretty! I tend to go through life with humour and this rollercoaster has definitely been a funny one! I often make fun of myself (as do others) and some of the things I have tried have been quite comical! I have suffered through breakouts from trying something new and allergic reactions to certain products (Cetaphil and I do not get along – I woke up with my eye swollen shut). Although, that may turn some people off experimenting, I want everyone to realize that if it didn’t work for me, that does not mean it won’t work for you. Throughout all of my trials and tribulations, the highs have definitely outweighed the lows by tenfold! There is nothing more rewarding than when you find a product that becomes your holy grail. That is where this blog comes in – I want to share with you my holy grails, techniques, and whatever else that I am obsessed with!
Lastly, and most importantly, I want this blog to be open to YOU! I started this blog to interact with people like me who want to try something new and share experiences so we can all reap the rewards! I want this to be a platform where everyone feels comfortable in commenting and sharing. Also, if anyone has tried something I mentioned, I want to hear the results! Share their own tips and tricks with me! Ask questions! The floor is yours!
I look forward to sharing this journey and exploring the world of beauty together!
