My BFF, Stephanie started BlushPretty a couple years ago and her weblog has been my go-to to satisfy my beauty fix. She posts product reviews and recommendations, and she also has side-bars that she updates monthly (my fave!). We first met in 1998 or 1999 through her ex-BF and my husband. Our story that we like to share with others is that we met when they took us on a double date. Stephanie and I immediately clicked and decide that we didn't want to sit with our goofball boyfriends. She has since moved on to an awesome husband and two blushing boys. Stephanie is so laid-back and down-to-earth and you can see these qualities in her blog. If you are into beauty, this is a blog to definitely add to your blog roll. We share a love for Nicole Richie and Max Factor's 2000 Calorie Lash Plumper mascara.
