The Get to Know Me Tag

September is a very special month for me because not only is it my Birthday Month (Shout out to my fellow Virgos!), it is my Blogiversary! In 2019, the Year of our Lord and Savior Blue Ivy, I am celebrating 3 years of talking in these internet streets. Thank you to all the visitors who always read my latest posts. Many thanks to the visitors who leave a comment or three! I appreciate all of that love and attention! Here is to many more years of blogging fun! In honor of this double celebration, we are taking another look behind the screen. I am sharing more about me with the Get to Know Me Tag.

NARS or M.A.C: Both – The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer was my holy grail for the longest time, but I am also a fan of the MAC Fix+ Spray.
