The New Year of 2017: Year of the Chook and True Beauty

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you see this post elsewhere, it has been plagiarized.*


Or the year of the cock! Happy New Year!!! I am so glad 2016 is gone.  I do hope 2017 is better.  For this blog, I think the only way it will continue is to change it a bit.

I have come to realize my place in beauty blogging and I also realized I have many makeup and beauty memories.  I had not realized how much my life had been defined by color, the feel of cosmetics, and the feel of beauty.  The latter meaning not just physical beauty but beauty from within the soul of life.

I have to admit, the death of George Michael devastated me more than Carrie Fisher or Debbie Reynolds.  I know the latter are two great Hollywood icons and I loved Debbie Reynolds in Singin' in the Rain!  That movie was one of my favorites of all time.  Remember the true voice of Lina Lamont!

Anyway, George Michael as the person and not the singer or the celebrity defined a moment in my life that I hadn't realized until his death.  All I can say is as a young, naive woman back then in London, and moving to a point today; beauty had nothing to do with the image or the best clothes.  It had to everything to do with that one synergistic moment of just creating a great memory.

I won't go into my memories of George because it is personal but I can say he and his family were very down-to-earth.  George you will be missed and so will your arse! πŸŽΈπŸŽ€πŸŽΆπŸ‘ 


How Can I Ignore You Today

As for this blog, I hoped I created some memories and for the upcoming year I hope to create more.  I learned karma may be telling me to go in a different direction.  After all if most of the PR is doing this to me:




Why even try?  I pretty much have been treated this way the past 7 years. If I had a dollar for each dollar value of a PR sample promised, I could have bought myself at least 3 authentic Chanel bags!  I don't anticipate PR samples anymore when I know they will go to others.  I have had enough with this treatment and have lost trust in many beauty lines, the feeling has pretty much become mutual!!!  The majority of PR has left me with bad makeup memories!!! 

So, I won't have many PR samples to talk about but I will have my own experiences to talk about.  How makeup has affected my life.  I can pick a point in my life and recall a makeup moment.  Beauty and cosmetics have been one constant in my life and I can't get rid of it.  If I did, I wouldn't be able to define myself.  You could say my cynicism, dry humor, sarcasm, and love all came about from trying to keep a level head from all the beauty images.

I knew I would NEVER EVER amount to the image of beauty that magazines glorified when I was a teen.  I didn't want to admit it back then and the emotions which ran through me made me so frustrated.  I would never be the beauty magazines wanted me to be.  But why the hell was that so important?  I am not some advertisement.  I am a living and breathing human who is growing old and as each year passes by, the other side beckons even closer.  I have to be who I am.


The Year of the Crowing Rooster

This blog will be written as my voice.  At times I may become curt and curse.  I can't help it because beauty as it was and what it has turned into has skewed the minds of many.  It is hard to relate to now, at least for me.

I hope you will continue to visit my blog.  I will try my best to keep you interested. In all honesty, I don't know how I will do it without getting too envious of others for their lucky PR samples.  I will just have to sit back and pull something out of someone else's arse! πŸ˜†

Thanks for sticking with me!  Happy New Year!!

xoxo,

Olivia
