About Me? or The Blog?


Dolce Vanity est. 2008

life · beauty · controversy

Born in the fall of '08, when blogs were not yet the today phenomenon the early days consisted of me documenting a new part of my life, being open and struggling with being diagnosed with depression & anxiety while discovering my new deep found passion for make-up. This became my outlet for a creative mind but troubled soul.

____
Nominated by Cosmopolitan Magazine for Best Established Beauty Blog in 2011 and 2012, which I went on to win.
This has lead to collaborations and working with reputable brands / press coverage can be viewed here .

Over the years my blog has evolved but I felt the blog lost the reason as to why it was voted to win to begin with.
I had to take a step back and remember that this blog is my own space and I want to show more of me to my readers.

As much as I love hair & beauty, I like to voice my opinions on other topics. Look at this blog as being in my brain.
- good luck.
