Update: Change of Address

As you surely know I have changed the address for this blog and finally created the address My previous address for those who were followers was, the inspiration for that name came from a book I love by the author Nora Roberts and it was part of a trilogy that I adored.

However this was before the beauty blog called “A Cosmetic Affair” was created. Its been some time now that I have been debating whether to change the name for this blog or keep it as was. After lot of thought I decided to change the name so that it better reflects the content of my blog and it will also be easier for people to find!

Thanks to all of you that read my blog and I hope to add more to this repository of posts and fun cosmetic information! 🙂 Please keep on reading!

Awards: Revisited

I’ve been given The Versatile Award again from the lovely, gorgeous girls from Linsay at Ramblings from a Beauty Newbie and April from April Claire Makeup. Thanks girls so much, you are so sweet! I love reading their blogs and have been a follower for some months now! April gave me the award a few weeks ago but since I had already received the award a few days before I wanted to leave some time before I posted this post. Also I think this is a good opportunity to share some facts about myself with some new followers of this blog! Thanks for following, I appreciate every one of you!

Now on to the rules:
♥ Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
♥ Tell us 7 things about yourself.
♥ Award 7 other bloggers.
♥ Contact these bloggers and let them know they’ve received the award(s).

7 things about myself:
1. I am obsessed with makeup and I have to stop myself from buying things sometimes as otherwise I could go overboard
2. I am currently really loving false eyelashes, I love the way they can change the whole look and make you look so much glamorous!
3. I really wanted to hate the Twilight series and didn’t want to watch the movies at all but since I got the books I have fallen in love with the series although I admit the books are so much better.
4. Talking of books, I am a huge Harry Potter fan and when the books where coming out and a new one would have just come out I would sometimes stay awake and read until I finished the book. This is why I finished the last book in about 2 days.
5. I love watching TV series’ and I must admit that I am a Gleek, I just love their take on songs.
6. I have always been a bit obsessed with vampires. At first it started because I was afraid of the dark but as I got older I would always fantasize about them.
7. I’ve tried to do Project 10 pan twice already but I can’t get round to more than 2 months of a ban.

Update: forgot to mention Helene from Frk.Bilmerke`s blog I read every one of her posts!

Ok, so I cheated a little but I love all of these blogs and I hope you check them out!

Birthday Wishes!

Just a quick and fast post about an inspiring person for me Ellen DeGeneres, who is an American stand-up comedienne, television host and actress. Today is her 53rd person and I just wanted to dedicate a small post to Ellen who always tries to be positive and happy about her life and always tries to make a difference in other people’s lives and makes the world a better place. I recently also found her YouTube Channel HERE where they upload parts of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” that she hosts.

Happy Birthday Ellen! Please check her YouTube Channel and be an inspiration to others!
