First Blog Post

 First blog post – YAY!  Wow, this has taken a while…I blame it on my OCD tendencies.  The blog still isn’t exactly how I want it, but it’s a start.

As an introductory post I thought I would explain what this blog is going to be about.  The name of my blog suggests it will be about gardening or flower arranging.  No.

Pink is my favourite colour and peonies are my absolute favourite flowers.  Now peonies are a scarce commodity in these parts (and by these parts I mean South Africa) and Woolworths usually only sells them about once a year in November.  Peonies were also going to be the main flowers used when my husband and I got married in February 2012, our wedding florist was going to import them from Europe.  Unfortunately the 2011/2012 Winter in Europe was so cold that no peonies were available to be imported.  I found this out two weeks before our wedding… I start hyperventilating just thinking about it!  Needless to say, we used what was available to us and it was a perfect wedding.  Love you, baby!

Anyway, so pink = favourite and peonies = favourite (and also a pain in my bum!)

I’m an enthusiast of all things beauty related – makeup, nails, hair.  But I’ve decided to see my blog as a lifestyle blog, more than your typical makeup-only or nail-art-only blog.  I’m going to post about whatever I feel is interesting, informative or even just humorous!   I’m not sticking to just one subject.

I’ve been thinking about what my first proper blog post would be about and since makeup is my first love (well second, or third, or fourth, or fifth if you count my husband and our four-legged children), I’ll be posting a review on a few MAC makeup items I bought a couple of days ago from their new “Archie’s Girls” collection.

I hope you enjoy!

    Gorgeous blog! Unfortunately makeup is not my first or second or third or even 137th love. But coffee and thinking deep thoughts make me hyperventilate – in a good way, obviously. Oh, and shopping too. (But only at car boot sales, hahaha.) So I hope to see a post related to one of these areas soon!
