10 yr Blogversary

Dick Page @ Band Of Outsiders

 Yesterday marked 10 years of The Beauty Alchemist. It's hard to believe but at the same time it seems like it's always been there. I look at time often as pre-blog or after I started. It's such a huge part of my life. One I am incredibly thankful for.

I can't believe the wonderful gifts doing this blog has given me.  Things that were long held dreams I didn't expect to realize like attending fashion week, meeting Duran Duran (My 15 yr old self would never have imagined and my adult self was floating  all month.) and hanging out watching makeup artists like Dick Page, James Kaliardos, Tom Pecheux and more work their magic backstage.

These  makeup artists and hairstylists who I'd been reading about in magazines for so long were standing in front of me. Speaking to me , letting me in  a little on their process and putting up with my gaping (and once knocking over a stool nearby).


The highlights are many and I'm sharing a few throwbacks here  and special memories here including that time I met Lady Gaga .

Then there are  the lovely ladies ( and a few men) who are fellow bloggers and PR reps.  I've met so many wonderful people, many of whom I can call friend .

And to readers, THANK YOU for stopping by or hitting up my Twitter or IG feeds.  I truly enjoy sharing my love of beauty and hope you enjoy reading about it.

Let's keep it going.
