It’s The Beauty Sample’s Birthday!!!

13 Dec


Hi guys!! Yes, it’s true–it’s my 1-year “blogaversary”!! :D I just wanted to take a moment and extend a gigantic “thank you!!” to everyone reading this. Thank you so, so much for reading and commenting and chatting with me in general about all things beauty! I’ve never been able to talk to anyone in great depth about my passion for beauty products before–no one really gets it! But when I joined the blogging community exactly 1 year ago today, I was instantly accepted with open arms. So many of you made me feel welcome and encouraged me–even when I went through some tough times. I want to send out a heartfelt thank you to all of you–you know who you are…but even so, I’d like to do a quick shout-out!

Thank you to Svetlana, Larie at Eye Heart It, Tracy at Beauty-Reflections, Emi at Project Swatch, Dani at Call It Beauty, Sunny at Mostly Sunny, and Shivani at Adorable on Your Vanity. They were just a few of the first people to read and support my blog and have continued to do so! If you haven’t yet (which I’m sure you have because they’re amazing!), do check out their blogs–they are some of the warmest, sweetest beauty-addicts you will ever meet!

I am no less grateful to everyone else though–I feel like I’ve met some real friends (Paris, Liz, SukieMM, Helen, Lily, Teri, Meryl and Monica, Christine, Joyce, Toya…I could honestly go on and on all day!), through blogging and I enjoy chatting with each and every one of you! There’s a real kinship in the beauty blogging community and I’m so proud to be a part of it! Thank you!

To anyone reading that I haven’t yet had a chance to chat with, please feel free to drop me a line at any time! You can tweet me (@TheBeautySample), leave a comment, or email me ( I’d love to “meet” you! Thank you for reading!


PS: please stay tuned for a special post later today! :D

    Yay!! Happy birthday Becca-blog!! I can’t believe you’ve only been doing this a year, with the quality of your photos – seems like you’re an old hand at this! Great job Becca, I totally get where you’re coming from about finding people to share the love – my friends just don’t get it either. But now we have each other, right!? :D
