The Lipstick League – Week of 27.8.12

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 2 - 2012

Question of the Week: – What compelled you to start a beauty blog?

Answer : – I was 8 months pregnant when I started Lipglossiping.com, basically desperate to find someone, anyone to talk to about frivolity.  Due to pregnancy complications, I hadn’t been able to get ‘out and about’, taking photographs as I once would have done for my old blog and putting all my makeup on (well, not ALL of it – but you know…), taking a photo, blogging it, and then taking it off again seemed like a fabulous way to spend my last few weeks of pregnancy.  But then I got a bit addicted to it.

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by Gouldylox – My favorite blog right now is Hair Romance, the Australia-based hair blog about falling in love with your hair.
