Whimsy What?

Well hello darling! If you are reading this you’ve found yourself in the depths of the DIY and Beauty blogger community. This is likely an error and you should be able to navigate yourself out, I’ll give you a hand. There is an address bar at the top where you can place your pointer and begin typing. Google is a good place to start and begin the getting lost in the depths process all over again. If you would like to go farther down the rabbit hole of internet strangeness I recommend reddit. On the off chance you came here on purpose or are still reading it out of a false sense of altruism I suppose I should first thank you and begin compelling you to sit and stay a while.

So a bit about myself and my blog. We will say my name is Chelle, let’s leave it at that, no need to get to personal at first blush. I am incredibly girly, not like “make you sandwiches and stay home with the kids and rub your feet” girly but, makeup and paint and lace and sunshine and rainbows and unicorns and glitter (ok, maybe not glitter) girly. I love getting my hands dirty, though preferably with paint or ink or pigments or potting soil, which I contend is not real dirt. I love doing things myself, which is usually the cheaper way and often the more rewarding. I don’t have much expendable income nor do I have much time these days, so I’ve not been doing as many projects as I have in the past. Which is the main reason I’ve started this blog. To prompt myself to do a project (hopefully) every week. Even if it’s just a makeup tutorial using products I already own. We often get so caught up in what we don’t have that we forget what we do have. Essentially this is my own personal motivation… oh, I’m starting to sound like one of those inspirational bloggers and this is just the intro. Bring back the sarcasm.

Secondarily I work in the cosmetics industry and am incredibly fascinated by said industry. So in addition to little DIY projects that I may stumble through I would love to pass on the knowledge I’ve learned about skin care and makeup to you. I’m often amazed (and occasionally shocked) at the questions I get. From the slightly counterintuitive benefits of using oils on oily skin to the just plain odd putting moisturizer on after makeup (yes I watched someone do this). I’ll forget that not everyone is an expert and not everyone had mentors and industry resources to teach them these things. So if you’ve made it this far and are still somehow intrigued, kick up your feet, stay a while. Let me know what you think and feel free to leave ideas for future projects.
