Lipglossiping’s Christmas Message.

Posted by Lipglossiping On December - 25 - 2009

Look, I even scheduled it for 3pm! (edit: although for some reason it posted it at 6am LOL) Sorry, I couldn’t resist! *dons crown and robes*


I’m taking a short break to recharge my batteries and won’t be around so much until the New Year, but I’m hoping my trusty post scheduler holds out for a few updates here and there.

Looking back on the year, it’s been an epic one.

I became a Mother, a makeup connoisseur, a blogger… I learnt how to articulate a review (ish), I developed an expensive shopping habit and discovered how not to remove false nails.  I love that you guys walked with me on my journey through those life changing events… hell, you were even there when I discovered Twitter 😉

Have a wonderful Christmas, thanks for making this year so enjoyable – I’ve loved getting to know you all and have had more fun than I ever imagined possible at that start of this journey.  I hope that next year is as good as this one.  I hope to meet more of you lovely people… both in “real life” and through the written word.

I hope that Christmas brings you everything your hearts desire.  Both superficially and in a more grounded, important non-makeupy way as-well!

Have a good one…

…and try not to eat too many of these:

sprouts... check (blergh)!
