Keeping Up With Karen…

Keeping Up With Karen

Howdy Chums…

Although I’m not a huuuge fan of Facebook, I somehow managed to stumble across a group that revolves around beauty & make-up chat… of course being the cosmetic craver that I am, I’ve slowly become addicted over the course of the weekend, commenting on what feels like almost every post *blushing*

Being a beauty blogger (as many of you gals will understand) normally results in an obsession with cosmetics. As I’ve said before, I could literally spending HOURS browsing the beauty shelves of my local stores in a solitary bubble of swatching, sniffing & making mental shopping lists. In fact my passion for make-up is so delightfully potent that I’m now happiest when shopping alone… not that I don’t enjoy a day out with the gals, but I’m always conscious of how long I’ve been hovering over countless make-up stands when someone’s with me. Anyone else sympathise by any chance? However (back to my original point) finding a group to jabber with on social media literally provokes little inner fireworks of excitement. It’s stepping into a virtual huddle with others that love to chatter about the same obsession. This is also why I LOVE beauty blogging so much. Being immersed in a community that totally gets my love of make-up without the prejudice… surrounding yourself with positive like-minded people is incredible food for the soul.. regardless of what the topic revolves around 🙂

So for those of you who (like myself) are planning on spending their Sunday chillaxing in some form or other (and fancy a bit of beauty chatter thrown in for good measure) here’s a quick recap of what’s been happening over the last few days on Confetti & Curves. Don’t forget, if YOU have a post you’d like to share just pop the link down below and I’ll be sure to drop by for a read and a chatter 🙂

  1. Lovely catch up as always – gotta make sure don’t miss anything! And by the way, I’m the same when it comes to shopping for craft supplies, sometimes it’s just nicest by myself when I don’t have to worry about how long I’m taking!

    • YES!!! That’s me too huni, craft shops are as bad as drugstores/beauty counters for me… could literally spend hours in them… not fun for anyone else tagging along and I get so blooming conscious that they’re bored (even if they say they aren’t) lol XXX

      • They always say they aren’t bored but you know that they really how – I mean, I find it hard to imagine that my friends and family enjoy rummaging through boxes of craft paper pondering on what you might use each sheet for to see if it’s worth getting as much as I do! xD
