My name is Natalie, or Natty to most people. I am 26 years old and I reside in The Windy City, Chicago, Illinois where I was born and raised. I created this blog back in June of 2009 to express my love for beauty, fashion, writing and photography with others. Although this blogs main focus is beauty, I do have an occasional post about my daily life, so you can learn more about the girl behind the computer screen! You may also hear a little bit about the two joys in my life, my amazing boyfriend George and my awesome dog, Rocky. Rocky is a 1/2 Maltese, 1/2 Yorkshire Terrier mix, equaling a 100% spoiled Momma's boy.

The content of this blog contains product reviews, whether it be hair care, skincare or makeup. The products reviewed range from drugstore products, department stores as well as small companies. I always take into consideration each aspect of the product and try my best to give fair reviews based on their overall performance. Everyone has different needs based on their skin type, coloring and personal preference, and with that said, a product I might love, may not always work out for you. If possible, I always recommend stopping in at your local Sephora, ULTA, Beauty or Department store with testers and/or samples readily available before purchasing any cosmetic you are unsure of. I am by no means a professional, but I will give my best advice based on my knowledge and experience. I'd like you to think of me like your older or younger beauty obsessed sis, that is always here to give you helpful tips and gush together over newly launched products and collections!

I also post occasional beauty & fashion hauls, fashion website reviews, giveaways & discount codes, tutorials, guest posts and FOTD's.

I hope you enjoy your time spent on my blog, and as always, thank you for reading and subscribing!

Photography and Make-up
Ever since I could remember, I've always loved the camera. My love for holding the camera in my hands, getting the perfect lighting and taking a crisp, focused photograph is what I enjoy the most. I enjoy taking photos of things that may seem silly, such as the dinner or dessert I'm about to indulge in, or my outfit on a certain day. I just simply love capturing moments and time periods from my life so I can always look back and smile at the little things, as most of the time they are insignificant at the time and are forgotten and become replaced with the larger stresses in life. Like they say, a picture says 1,000 words, and the best way to travel back into your shoes to reminisce your emotions and feelings that took place in the past is with the simple help of a photograph. My love for beauty and glamour is a passion I developed ever since I was a very little girl. I've always been a girly girl and I have always admired a well put together, made up woman. I always looked up to my Mom, who has, and always always will be the most beautiful woman in the world in my eyes. She always took pride in her appearance, and growing up, I learned the same. When I was younger, I couldn't wait to wear makeup, and when I turned 12 years old, I purchased my first Wet n Wild lipstick and haven't looked back since! Of course vanity isn't everything, inner beauty is what counts the most, but I highly believe that makeup is a form of art, and art is a form of self-expression! It's the funnest part about being a girl, and it gives us all a little boost of confidence!
