After being overwhelmed by the size of her makeup stash, Helen from Lola's Secret Beauty Blog decided to launch a new blog series called Project Make-A-Dent to force her to use up more of her makeup. Are you in?
Don't miss my posts over on Babble this week! I fully admit that I've found it hard to balance blogging, my "real" job and my best job, which is with my family. Adding in Babble was a bit too much, so I'm cutting back to 2 posts per week over there. Here's what I've written this week!
We have some changes in our Beauty Spotlight Team. We are thrilled to have 3 new blogs that bring information from around the world. You'll be meeting Carrie from Eyeliner on a Cat, Kate from Drivel About Frivol and Sunny from Mostly Sunny. The sad news is that we have some bloggers that are taking a break from blogging but hopefully will be back to share when the breaks are over.
