Beauty Swatch turns 4: Five days of giveaways & a trip down memory lane

Trip Down Memory Lane

Beauty Swatch turns 4!

To celebrate our 4th blog birthday, I have 5 days of flash giveaways lined up from Monday to Friday so stay tuned! There’ll be prizes from yours truly, Lanolips, Estee Lauder, Alpha-H and Mecca Cosmetica.

One of the many things I love about blogging is how it captures your journey in time that doesn’t become apparent until you look back.  I dug up my archives to see how my “lip swatch” photography has evolved over the 4 years and the pictures speak for themselves!  They are the same lips, photographed with the same camera, and all that’s changed is lighting and experience from 4 years of trial and error.

My blog story is not one of overnight success, but persistence, staying true to myself & focus on the things that keep the “spark” going.  There were many times I wanted to quit, but the stubborn part of me reminds me that I have a lot more that I want to achieve with the blog first before deciding on my next direction.   I hope you’ll continue to join me for another year with Beauty Swatch!

Hope you enjoy my little “trip down memory” lane and I tag all of you to share your blog story too!
