Change is coming .. (Actually, it`s here!)

Alright Everybody. Change has happened. Those who know me well, know that I deal with change very quietly, with a lot of deep breaths. I have decided to stop using WordPress as my blogging platform. This choice was difficult, because I will admit, it is one of the easiest blogging platforms I have ever used. However, I pay for, and maintain a website for my freelance work, and doing both is just getting to be too much. Girl Met Blush started as a passion project, and it still is. But, I feel like having everything in one place will be easier to handle, and I also feel like www.girlmetblush.com looks more professional than having the added .wordpress.com tail on the end of it.

So what does this mean for us? To be honest, not much. You will have to type in a different link to find me, and hopefully will follow me at the new URL. (I think you can follow the new blog … I am new to the settings!) This is more of a warning that I have not dropped off the face of the earth, and also a huge thank you to all of my followers. Bear with me while I get through the transition phase of this, as my new website is much more intricate to work with, and I am still getting used to it.

While my head has been clouded with all of the new information, I have been drawing blanks lately for post ideas. I also wanted to see if you guys could let me know what you want to hear about in the near future. I purchased the new Smashbox Contour Trio Set, and I am still playing with those before I bring you a full review.

Stop by the new blog location, and leave me a comment if you want! Any feedback on the way the site looks would be greatly appreciated … Keep in mind I am not a technology person (Irony!) and I do everything on the website myself!

That’s my update guys! I’ll see you at the new location!

Talk Soon!

What’s in Sabah’s Purse? Let’s take a look …

I’ve always lived a bit out of my car. I grew up outside of the city so when I left the house in the morning I packed for everything. As an adult, that has led to me carrying around a fairly ridiculous purse. If you need anything I’m the woman you want to track down in a bar when you realize that your ex is there and his new girlfriend is a doppelganger for Beyoncé and you aren’t even wearing lip gloss.

A lot of these are pretty clear as to what they are, but there are a few things I’d like to add.

•You should always have a makeup remover. Makeup on top of old makeup is rarely the solution ladies.
•If you struggle with under eye circles you need Benefit’s Erase Paste. I bought a kit with the sole purpose of having this mini erase paste for my purse.
•Try to find a foundation or BB cream with an SPF. Makeup bags like this become critical in the summer and we all know that we need all the SPF we can get on those patios.
•Pack tweezers, nothing shows unwanted hair like the rear-view mirror of your car. Have tweezers on hand at all times.
•Try to use lip-glosses in these bags as they are frequently left in cars and other such areas where a lipstick could melt.
•Make room for some brushes, did you ever try to apply bronzer with your fingers?

Sara laughs at me regularly when we are out for dinner at the strange things I carry around with me all the time. I’ll list a few for you…
•Band-Aids- Mine have Jane Austin on them, a gift from a bestie who knows me painfully well.
•A pretty blank card- I always have a blank card with me. Words cannot express how often this has come in handy to add to a bottle of wine for a friend or a forgotten birthday.
•Nail Glue: PS I don’t wear fake nails but this glue could hold a wing on a plane even though fake nails do tend to fall off at the worst times.
•Hair accessories- a small headband, bobby pins and elastics
•USB Stick- Lingering school habit I’m sure, but I do usually have at least one stick drive.
•A k-cup and/or a Starbucks instant coffee individual sleeve.
•Glasses wipes- these are amazing, the specialty wipes for eye glasses are a must have that thankfully my mother buys for me in cartons whenever she goes to see her eye doctor.
•Then there is all of the obvious, gum, wallet, phone, charger, hand sanitizer, hand cream, pills (Tylenol, Motrin, Midol and allergy) Dare hard candy (because I’m 95 obviously), sunglasses, floss, safety pins, etc.)

So, that’s my purse … What are the strange things you always try to carry around with you?
