Dearest Readers,

It is Couture Makeup’s 5 year anniversary. Id like to begin this post with a quote that has always stuck with me, “Easy reading is damn hard writing.” — and I couldn’t agree more. I have grown so much as a writer over the past 5 years. I want to thank you, for supporting me — 5 years of beauty, poetry, inspiration, fashion, every high, low and in between. Thank you for allowing me to share with you all of my deepest thoughts, wishes, hopes and dreams. Thank you for every single comment. Thank you for each beautiful email. You’ve filled me with encouragement at times that I’ve felt low, you’ve celebrated with me each and every personal win. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful group of readers. I will continue to write all that comes from my heart, bringing you as much beauty as possible. I wish you all a year filled with joy and love. Cheers to 5 years of hard work and beautiful inspiration.
