Ziba’s 100th Post!!! And A Dance Tutorial

April 12, 2013

The 100th Post

 

Hello! And welcome to my 100th blog post on Ziba!!

I’m feeling super proud because when it comes to writing… I am such a slow poke!

Actually, when it comes to everything, I am like a turtle. So slow!!! And I have my fierce streak of perfectionism to thank for that.

At the beginning, when I would sit down to write a blog post, I couldn’t even get through the first sentence without editing it at least 20 times!

But now I can say that I’ve gotten a little faster (though by the time you read this, this sentence will probably already have been edited at least 3 times.)

But getting to this milestone (100th Post!!!) has been done with great pleasure. I’ve enjoyed every minute of being a beauty blogger. It’s changed the way I see things. And yes, in some ways, it has even changed my life.

AT FIRST

I created Ziba because I had this idea to sell fantastic skincare and beauty products.

This blog was only an afterthought. It was just supposed to accompany the business side of things. But then shortly after, the blog began to take a life of its own. That’s when I decided to separate the blog and the shop.

Now, I dedicate so much of my time and energy towards the blog. 

A lot of people become beauty bloggers because they’ve always loved beauty. And they’ve been regular readers of other beauty blogs.

But for me, up until about a year ago, I didn’t even know what a beauty blog was!!

OTHER CHANGES IN MY LIFE

Well, I never considered myself to be a very girly person.

Though I’d always been very mindful of skincare, all the other stuff, like makeup, my hair, my nails… I never really bothered with them.

But now, I’m finding myself hanging around makeup counters, watching hair tutorial videos and obsessing about the weak state of my nails.

And you know what?! I LUV IT!

Luv it.

THE BEST PART ABOUT IT ALL?

I think it’s helping others.

Like when my friends and my readers turn to me with a question. Even when I don’t know the answer, I am super motivated to read up on the matter and get back to them with my findings and my thoughts.

Another favorite part has been getting to know so many other bloggers who are incredibly nice and brilliant people.

A WORD OF THANKS!

Keeping up this blog just wouldn’t haven been that fun without the support and encouragement from you, my dear readers. And from my friends and all my loved ones.

Which is why I’m saying Thank You!!! For everything.

Next month will be Ziba’s 1 Year Anniversary. 

And as a way to celebrate and say thank you, I am going to reveal a GIVEAWAY this weekend!

I think you’ll really like it.

Just to give you a little clue about the giveaway… it’s going to include 3 beauty products. And 2 will be full sized products!!

NOW FOR THE DANCE TUTORIAL

This is a music video by one of my favorite bands, CSS. They’re a fun electro-rock group from Brazil.

Enjoy the music =)
