Hello there and thank you for visiting! I’m Melissa, a 36-year-old lady living in Michigan with my husband and our six fur babies (1 dog, 5 cats). Since I was a little girl, I’ve been obsessed with all things involving getting pretty: dresses, jewelry, and of course, makeup!
My grandma once said I even asked one of her friends to go home and change into a dress because “girls don’t wear pants.” Hey, I was in elementary school; you’re welcome to wear pants any time, but I’ll stick with the dresses and skirts. 🙂
The purpose of this blog is to just share beauty and fashion products that I enjoy. I am not a makeup artist by any means, and I encourage research before buying beauty products (although we all have those impulse purchases now and again). What works for me won’t work for everyone, as everyone has different needs based on color, skin type, hair type, and more! I just do this because I love to write and I love beauty products.
Everything you see here is purchased with money earned by me; if it is a gift or PR item (hey, a girl can dream, right?) I will disclose it within the post.
Some bits and bobs about me:
Skin– Light to Medium
Skin tone/consistency– Neutral, normal to combination at times (slightly oily T-zone)
Hair– Fine, and wavy; natural brunette
First makeup– I bought my first eyeshadow when I was 15; I remember it was a purple toned Wet ‘n’ Wild palette and I thought I was sooo cool for wearing it.
Nationality and ethnicity– I’m an American girl, and a true mutt! My father is French/Native American and half Italian, while my mother is mostly Finnish with German too.
Why Pink Lady Beauty?
For one, I’ve been obsessed with pink my entire life. My dad built our house from the ground up when I was a kid, and when it was finished everything in my room was pink, just like I wanted!
Also, my mother in law once said that I reminded her of Frenchy from the movie Grease. 🙂
When I’m not dabbling with makeup and primping, I’m teaching college-level writing courses and working full-time in social media. I have a master’s degree in creative writing, so I love to write! 🙂
