No TRE This Week!

Happy Sunday, Beautiful Blossoms! Unfortunately there is no The Raised Eyebrow entry for today because I haven’t come across anything in the beauty scene that has me raising an eyebrow. I’m also trying to draft a schedule I can stick to (I really want to try and blog everyday) that doesn’t have me just posting review after review after review (I think the YouTube channel would be better suited for that). But to do that on the daily is… admittedly draining, which is why I never really got to posting everyday.

Especially when you come home from enthusiasm-draining work. But I will try somehow – I still got the end of August to set up a trial run for the future. And I also gotta try and save me damn license to boot.


No TRE This Week!

Yep. I know I always say that I’ll see you Beautiful Blossoms the following week at the end of each TRE, but there’s nothing that took place this week that made me raise an eyebrow. If anything, I’ve found myself reflecting over my makeup collection and the fact that I’m trying to pan the shit out of my AudaCITY in Paris and neglecting my other eyeshadow palettes as a result (because I have to play it safe with my work appearance).

I need to play more with my palettes. They deserve better than collecting dust.

I do commend the lovely Beauties who can sit in front of a mirror, do their makeup, take a picture, and post about it. Even if they don’t go outside. I don’t know how the hell you lovely peeps do it.

Maybe I should do the same?


My face when I realized I was supposed to post a Currently Obsessed entry on a late Saturday night:

I even have my phone set to remind me on my Calendar. So I check WHY it didn’t go off:

There was NO ALARM SET. My phone doesn’t remind me that it’s Friday and that I have an entry due to be written for the day.


No worries, though: I’ll do a Double Post Sunday and do an entry for The Raised Eyebrow AND Currently Obsessed. And the beauty scene has been abuzz with Rihanna making moves to create her own makeup line to Coachella taking place this weekend.

Which one is bound to raise an eyebrow or two, I wonder?

Announcement: New YouTube Video!

Tonight, I’ll be recording a new video for the BBA channel to change things up a bit. Make sure you click the YouTube Icon on the site’s main page either at midnight tonight or tomorrow morning!

I’m forced to wait until close to midnight to record since that’s when the whole house is quiet enough for me to record and not get disrupted.

Hope to see you there, Beautiful Blossoms!

BAFT / Announcement: Look Like Me!

Welcome back, Beautiful Blossoms, to another week of BAFT! If you’re new here, glad to have you visiting the site! This week is both a BAFT and an Announcement (at the end of the entry): I was struggling to figure out what to discuss this week because nothing thought-provoking really happened. And I didn’t want to be a broken record and repeat topics that have already been discussed in previous entries.

So what’s a girl to do?

Lo and behold, my prayers were answered: a comment by WordPress blogger PhillyFashionGirl gave me this week’s topic. Thanks hon!

BAFT: The YouTube Makeup Bubble (Part 1)

*Please check the What’s New at BBA page to find out the schedule for the entries at BBA.

Hello, Beautiful Blossoms! I know I gave a back-to-back entry last week with Currently Obsessed and then got really quiet until today, and I do apologize for the sudden silence. I was able to squeeze an entry early Saturday morning (think 1-3 AM) because I couldn’t get myself to sleep from excitement about the site, discussing Kiko Milano, and my out-of-town trip that day. It was also my sister’s birthday and my grandma had to fly out, so you can imagine how hectic it was in my apartment.

Then it was back to the work grind. I just found myself falling face-first onto my bed as soon as I got home. Staring at a screen for 7 hours does bloody murder to you.

And in the moments of free time that I get during my work shift, I’m trying to figure out a schedule for Currently Obsessed, BAFT, and The Raised Eyebrow – how many days in between should I schedule the posts? What topics do I go over for BAFT and TRE that hasn’t been beaten into submission in the beauty and blog scene? Do I include product recommendations or reviews on the site?

That’s just part of what runs in my head the moment I think about BBA. As Temptalia’s Christine once advised, “remember: content is KING.”
