It definitely has been a while, since I took pen and paper in hand, sat down and drafted my love and appreciation — scripted by my passion for being your elite bloganistaa. Writing is so soothing and relaxing for the soul. It allows your voice to have an identity, without speaking a word!
With every rise and fall of the massive sea — better known as my life –I continue to hold on tight to my dreams which fulfills me as your Goddess, Media Maven & Elite Socialista. So much has happened since the last issue. I am slightly bruised and sore from enduring the uphill battle and I am desperately yearning some blissful release. I’ve embraced “change” and go with the flow. I spent countless hours tweaking, editing and revamping — and constantly brainstorming. The past few months have been tiring and draining. We moved to a new location and have been adjusting to the transition. We have come so far — and are in too deep, to turn back now.
Over the past 2 years — transitioning has been the focus — especially since nothing in life stays the same. Life is always on the move…as am I. Stillness and stagnation are my pet peeves and I care not to entertain the thought of their existence in my life. Rather than fight against the current — I learned escape routes and proper techniques to avoid drowning. I am happy to have stumbled upon the Beauty Blog Coalition and the Blogazons — two beauty collectives –¬† offering invaluable resources for fellow beauty bloggers trying to make it in the blogosphere. They have helped me to let go of what doesn’t work — and instead, try out different methods — and to ask for help when I need it. Together, we are the beauty warriors — supporting each other as we battle through and push forward. It has been a knowledgeable experience of true sisterhood –each individually blessed with natural born talent.
In light of this venture, you can now look forward to beauty roundups — Best in Beauty. Media Maven & Elite Socialistas (Empress Media) have merged to deliver creative reviews — of the Goddess Kind! We have a new rating system, which not only gives you a better idea of products/services reviewed — but also allows you to interact and share your own personal experience with the brand in question. Brands will be reviewed based on 3 determning criteria –reliability, value 9for money), and quality. So look out for this feature…complete with letter grades from A+ to F.
I’ve also been invited to be a beauty ambassador to several brands and will definitely keep you posted once I’ve made a definitive decision. The Jr. Elite Socialistas and myself — had such a ball working with Revlon, and it has since opened many doors.¬† Also, make sure you sign up with both blogazines — to get your exclusive invite to be our guests at one of our SPArties — spa parties and/or social shopping ventures — shopping events and sample sales. We are even planning Goddess Getaways — where you can travel with us (at discounted rates or even FREE… ) to write reviews (FAB info coming soon). Our reviews are delivered as rants or raves, love letters to brands, photo diary or vlogs — but here at our studio, we call it getting Style Fixx’d.
After surfing the web for talent, I was happy to come across Shadders and Afro Divas — who inspired me to push forward with the XPoZuR project. This project allows me to feature talented artists — makeup, photographers, stylists, models, writers — who show creative drive and innovative talent in their fields. These beautiful works of art would grace the pages of Empress Media.
