“My mother gave me a bumblebee pin when I started to work. She said: Aerodynamically, bees shouldn’t be able to fly. Remember that.”
– Jill E. Barad
If you’re feeling frightened about what comes next, don’t be. Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path towards happiness. Don’t waste time with regret. Spin wildly into your next action. Enjoy the present – each moment – as it comes because you’ll never get another one quite like it. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over. Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart…where your hope lives. You’ll find your way again.
Long time no see, Best of Tumblr! Since I watched absolutely 0% of last night’s Superbowl festivities yet seem to have an Inbox filled with Superbowl-themed press releases, I figured I would do a Lela-style tribute. Shout-out to Indianapolis, the city that I love to love from afar.
So, congratulations to whoever won, and better luck next time, losing team!
BOOM. It’s here. The project that has been in months of months of development…She Said Beauty – the Ultimate Beauty Discovery Box. I have been honoured as the Editor of the beauty blog and general online “voice” of the brand.
Keep in mind, this is only Step One of She Said Beauty and, in fact, you will be blown away by both the quality and quantity of changes that are coming in the next six months. My lips are sealed in regards to the whats and whens, but I can let you know that along with a Facebook-esque integration to the site, the blog will be transitioning into magazine territory, with the Beauty Director of Elle – Emma Strenner – and some incredible writers and bloggers already on board.
I love my team, and I am so proud of what we have already accomplished in just a week of business.
(Note: Take a look at my first Editor’s Letter, Zooey Deschanel makeup tutorial, and “Make-up For Me” for a content taster. You will love our ‘real girl’ face of the day Street Beauty on Tumblr, and should definitely follow us on Twitter and Facebook for insider updates!)
