How are y’all? How was the weekend? I know that this post is coming late but had a crazy weekend. In my last post, I told y’all I would be revealing everything that’s been happening, so here it is.
First of all, did y’all notice that I have a new website domain name and design? Elena from Blogerize reached out to me last week and offered to give my blog a makeover! At first, I was skeptical about the offer but after some research and talking with a fellow beauty blogger, Juliette, I realized this was the real deal. (Click on her name to check her out – she is a great beauty blogger!) I am so happy with my new design. It looks amazing!!! Elena and her team were so receptive of all my questions and took into consideration everything that I wanted in my new design. So now, my blog’s new name is Linda Talks Beauty. I decided to change my blog name because I realized that there were other beauty blogs that had either the same name or a very similar name. I wanted a name that was my own and different from what was already out there.
Second, I reached my first 100 subscribers!!! Woohoo!!! I’m so happy and grateful for all the followers and friends that I have made since my blogging debut in September. I love interacting and connecting with my friends and fellow bloggers. I don’t have very many beauty obsessed friends irl, so being able to come here and share my passion with others, who love beauty just as much as I do, is one of my favorite things to do.
Third, on Saturday I won my first beauty giveaway! I always participate in social media giveaways but I never win. So when I was tagged on an Instagram giveaway as the winner, I was sooooooo happy. I won a pair of false lashes from Luxy Lash called Pretty on Fleek. The lashes look so gorgeous and I can’t wait for it to arrive.
Lastly, I moved back to Austin – another big yay! I was living in Dallas for the past 11 months as part of my grad school program. Now, I have moved back to Austin to complete my clinical rotation. During my clinical rotation, I’ll be working in different laboratories to gain hands-on experience. For those that don’t know, I’m not a full-time beauty blogger or influencer. I am actually aspiring to be a medical laboratory scientist. If you don’t know what a medical laboratory scientist is and want to know, I will be doing a series of posts on this topic later on. This is my beauty blog and I want to focus on beauty but at the same time, I do want to shed some light on the MLS profession. It is a profession that is in high demand yet, not many people know about it.
So far, my blogging journey has been so exciting and fun. I can’t wait to blog more, meet more fellow bloggers, and make more friends. Thank you for all the support and love. I hope y’all had a wonderful Tuesday/weekend and I will ttyl~
