Female Network Beauty Con Highlights

Tuesday, December 8, 2015

     FUN FACT: Before I became a beauty blogger, I'm a lurker on online forums. I burn the midnight oil not to study but to read all the exchange of comments on topics like skin care, makeup, health, fitness, diet, and exercise. I guess, this daily habit of mine some five years ago was one of the factors why I became a beauty blogger.

    I'm proud to say that I'm a girltaker! Who here loves visiting online forums and joining the discussion? I presume that if you're like me who likes researching first before buying beauty products, you've gone to one of the famous online forum sites that had helped and inspired hundreds of women online- Female Network! I was very privilege to be invited by Summit Media to Female Network Beauty Con last November 15 at Robinsons Magnolia. Highlights of the event below :)

     For the talk, I attended talks two and three respectively. Even though I already know how to take good care of my hair, I'm still surprised when I discovered that conditioners should not be left for too long in our hair. I'm guilty of doing this especially when I feel that my hair needs conditioning after using a lot of styling products.

     After the hair care talk, I enjoyed listening to my co-beauty blogger Shari Macainag of themistymom.com :) I'm a follower of Shari and I'm happy that she was one of the speakers during the event. She shared her early years in beauty blogging and what are the basics if you wanna start your own beauty blog. If you think beauty blogging is easy, well it's not. I'm not discouraging you to start your own blog but you have to have that burning passion in order to maintain a beauty blog. From writing, to taking photos, to sharing your posts in social media networks, to interaction with your blog readers, answering emails and so on and so forth. It takes time, commitment, and yes heaps of patience and the magic word passion to enjoy beauty blogging and other niche of blogging as well.
