A bit early, I know, but…
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAUTIFUL WITH BRAINS!!
This Saturday the blog turns 10 years old! Can you believe it?!
If you told me 10 years ago that this blog would become my career, I’d have thought you were crazy! And yet, here we are and it’s all thanks to YOU.
So much has changed in the past 10 years. Beautiful with Brains started out as my personal blog, an outlet where I could share my passions for all things beauty with other like-minded people. Now, it’s grown into a skincare resource that helps thousands of women (and men) find the best products for their needs – based on science, not hype.
I admit I wasn’t sure BWB would last this long. Many times in the past few years, I lost my blogging mojo. It’s so easy to lose your passion for blogging in a beauty world where you’re only as good as your number of Instagram followers and where brands don’t hesitate to knock you off their lists if you dare say anything remotely negative about their products.
What kept me going and kept my passion alive was your support. I’m immensely grateful to you all for sticking around with me for so long. Beautiful with Brains may not be the biggest blog in the world but it has the most amazing followers a blogger could ever wish for.
You are the reason BWB is so successful. Your support and trust in me is what gives me the strength to make the right decisions to take the blog to the next level without compromising on my values or selling you out to brands. I value that trust more than words can say and I would never betray it.
I want to make this clear: this blog is for YOU. That’s why I will always tell it like it is. I want my reviews and posts to help you pick the right products for your skin and make smarter choices based on what you truly need, not influence you to buy something you don’t need.
It’s the least I can do for all you’ve ever done for me. I hardly remember the girl I was when I started blogging. She was so insecure, was suffering with depression and spent most of her days at home, too scared to face the real world and talk to people. Today, I’m a confident woman with a job I love, I live in the best city in the world and, most importantly, I’ve met incredible people I’m proud to call friends. None of this would happened without you.
Words will never be able to express how grateful I am. Grateful to you for sticking with me all these years. For reading my thoughts about skincare. For your thoughtful comments. Your kind emails. For sharing my posts on your social media channels. For believing in me and trusting in me. For making me the person I am today. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, thank you. I really can’t say it enough.
Here’s to another 10 years!
