2014 is about embracing change and amping up the level of everything in my life. With that in mind, I’d love to do a Questions & Answer video on my YouTube channel and share a little bit of myself with you. Most of the videos on my channel have been on beauty and makeup products, but it would be nice to add another dimension to my channel. So, if you’ve got questions…I got answers.
Since trying to sort through comments on WordPress & YouTube can be kind of crazy, I created a Google Form to organize and sort the questions I receive. (Yeah…I’m a techy and proud…LOL.)
So, please, do me a great big favor and click the picture below. It will take you to a very easy and quick “Ask AllThingsTashia” Google formor you can simply click here. I’ll answer any reasonable question, so ask away.
I’d love to film my Q & A video before the end of January, so I will close this form on January 19, 2014. I’m so excited to see what you will ask. 🙂 Thank you in advance for taking time to ask me questions.
Don’t be alarmed!!! I’ve been making site changes to improve my blog for my 1st blogging anniversary (January 28, 2014). Do you like the black bird nature background or would you be okay will a more clean approach to my blog? Of the three options, which would you pick 1, 2, 3 or 4? Option 1 is how my blog was originally. Right now, my blog is a hybrid between option 1 & 2 (option #4). However, I thinking of getting rid of the black birds and going with the fun and girly pink polka dots in option #2. I could also do a more minimalistic layout with option #3 and keep the blog fresh, clean, and elegant.
What do you think? I’d love your feedback. Please vote and let me know what you think. (Just click on each option to see an enlarged picture of each layout. Voting ends on January 11, 2014. 🙂
I have several new and unused makeup samples in ivory or light that I simply cannot use because my skin tone is at the other end of the spectrum. Would anyone like a package of makeup samples (foil packets)? Currently, I have five samples that include:
Smashbox BB Cream in Light
L’Oreal Magic BB Cream in Light
Benefits “Hello Flawless” pressed powder in ivory
Make Up For Ever Pro Finish Powder in Fair
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in Light/Medium
I was thinking about offering these samples on http://www.makeuptalk.com, but wanted to share it with those near and dear. You know what they say… “charity begins at home.” So with that being said, if you are an ivory girl and would truly appreciate these samples, please send me a short email saying so to email@example.com. I will pick the receiver of the samples randomly, notify them through email and request a mailing address.
**Please note: I am willing to mail the samples anywhere in the USA. However, I am not sure what international rules for mailing samples are and would not like the samples to go to waste, so I will offer samples to my international happy friends once I’ve had time to research the procedures.
The cut off for emailing me regarding the samples is May 19, 2013 at 12:00 noon PST. On the chance that I receive zero requests, I will immediately offer the samples on Makeup Talk.
If so, I feel your pain and I made a decision to change this chaos into something far more manageable. I took all of the above perfume sample packets and turned them into this very nice neat bundle. (Take a look below.)
When dealing with samples, often the paper packaging is not really necessary. Particularly when dealing with small vial perfume samples, you really don’t need the cardboard covers. These cardboard covers create so much unnecessary bulk to your sample drawer and you will still be able to identify your perfume samples. So recycle the cardboard instead because most foil packets and perfume sample vials like these have identifying branding information on them. (There are a few cardboard items I kept for ingredients information and/or attached coupons.)
To keep the perfume vials and foil packets organized after the cardboard removal, I used a sachet pouch to store all of my perfume samples and put all of my foil packets in an empty Glossybox. Now, I have more room in my sample drawer for other items.
What do you think? How do you organize your beauty samples?
Wow!!! I am very impressed with Julep’s May Jazz Collection. They had me when I saw the lipstick trios. I am so excited about this box. I have skipped the last couple of Maven boxes because I thought they were rather meh. However, this month, I am definitely ordering a Maven box. For May, I selected the Bombshell Maven box. Honestly, I don’t really want the nail polishes this month; I just want the lipsticks. Even still, this box looks like a great value and a girl can never have too many lipsticks. 🙂 I love Julep’s YouTube video for this lipstick collection. Click here if you want to see the lipsticks on real women.
So what do you think about Julep’s May Jazz Collection? Are you going to pass on a box this month or are you as excited as I am about it? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
