WOW, I’m in a Magazine!

So I’m starting my Friday out with a bang! Waking up to an email from writer Esther Chapman that I’m mentioned in Good Housekeeping magazine is a way to start my weekend off that’s for sure.  To my fellow bloggers: keep typing up what you’re passionate about…you never know who will come across your blogs. I was found by doing a simple internet search and got a chance to give my beauty tips to a professional writer.  Just when you think no one really reads your stuff…the right people find it, read it, & can help get your name out there! My blogging was first discovered by social media rock star & author Lisa Pietsch; when I first started blogging it was just for fun, to give my clients beauty tips, and because I enjoy it. Lisa has generously given me writing, social media tips, and has also become a great friend. Since then I have gone from just writing about beauty, to writing about lifestyle adventures, home remedies, and fun recipes. I would have never thought I’d be seeing my name in a very well known magazine…so you can only imagine how totally stoked I am! So thank you guardian angels of the social media world…you made this simple girl from Texas smile from ear to ear. Enjoy the weekend and check out the article!
