“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”

“Remember how in that communion only, beholding beauty with the eye of the mind, he will be enabled to bring forth, not images of beauty, but realities (for he has hold not of an image but of a reality), and bringing forth and nourishing true virtue to become the friend of God and be immortal, if mortal man may.”
-Plato, Symposium

Welcome to my blog, fellow beauty/makeup/cooking/baking mavens!

As an enthusiast of all things beauty- and cuisine-related, the purpose of my little blog is to explore new beauty products, review those same products, share subscription boxes with all of the lovelies who are reading my blog, and post up a few tried-and-true recipes of appetizers, entrees, side dishes, and scrumptious desserts and baked delicacies.

There are innumerable blogs on the world wide internet already covering these same topics, so you might be wondering what my blog will have to offer that those others do not.  Well, I’m not sponsored by anyone so any of my opinions on any product will be just that, my unadulterated opinion, which isn’t influenced in any way except by my own personal preference.  Bigger isn’t always better.  More expensive doesn’t always equate to a superior product.  Sometimes those dollar store finds are like striking gold.  And sometimes that big-name product just doesn’t always live up to the hype, no matter how much you want to love it.

I also intend to have the occasional giveaway, which could be anything from a small home decor item (i.e., candles, wax tarts, etc.), a beauty item which I love and wish to share with a reader, or a small cooking- or baking-related item.  The possibilities are endless…Since I haven’t really planned that far ahead, anything is possible.

So, welcome to my blog.  I hope you decide to subscribe and hang around for awhile.  We can talk all the dirt about the latest products and compare notes.  And if there’s a product you love that you’d like to tell me about, feel free to do so.  I love trying new products!

And remember, the wonderful thing about beauty…It’s always in the eye of the beholder.
