When I lost my mom more than a year ago, I thought that it was the end of everything and that I won't have anything left to hang on to. Aside from friends and family who helped me survive my everyday, this blog has helped me coped. I can't say that I would have been the same if it weren't for this blog. If it weren't for you, my wonderful readers, who continuously support me... I really think things would have been different and a lot less fun. Through all my sufferings, this blog is one of the places I sought solace from. I became a better person because of this blog.
More than that, over the past year, me and my blog has reaped a lot of blessings. I have met people and became friends with them who are not only beautiful on the outside but very much so on the inside as well. I'm so glad to have met all of you, here in the cyber world and real world.
There is so much people to thank but you already know who you are. This blog owes you so much. To my blogger friends who became real life good friends. I'm so grateful that beauty addiction brought us all together. I thank the companies for giving me a chance to consider their products for reviews without pressure and without having to compromise the integrity of this blog. For trusting me and giving me the freedom to do an unbiased review for the benefit of my readers. I thank my RL friends who constantly put up with my non-stop chatter about new products and events. LOL. I thank the boyfriend who constantly support me in what I do and doesn't mind the space I am taking up with all the products I buy.
Most of all, to my readers, whom became the accidental reason why I do this now. Your constant words of appreciation and encouragement moves me to take this blog into the next level and yet maintain the same things that you have come to love. You touch my heart whenever you mention that you learn a lot from my posts.
The weird thing is, I never thought I'd be here where I am right now. God is indeed good and I thank Him above all else for these blessings.
So, it is just right that I share some of those blessings to you, my beautiful loyal readers.
