The Starting Off Series


Lately I haven't found any great new products or things that haven't been reviewed to death.  I also broke 3 nails :(  So I have been in a bit of a slump.  I was reading through my blog list and I came across THIS post by Nykki @ JosephineNychole.  I am going to join her in the Starting Off Project!  Which was the brainchild of Stephanie @ Steph's Inside Voice so we are really all joining her :)

What is the Starting OFF Project?  It's a bunch of bloggers getting together and posting about a specific beauty item each week - our beginnings with it, our advice, our tips and tricks!  I cannot wait to read everyone's contributions!  It starts on August 27th so there's still time to join in if you'd like. 

Here are the topics by week:

Here are the weeks:
Week 1: Skincare
Week 2: Concealer
Week 3: Foundation
Week 4: Bronzer
Week 5: Blusher
Week 6: Mascara
Week 7: Eyeliner
Week 8: Eye shadow
Week 9: Lipstick/Gloss
Week 10: Makeup Tools

Week 11 {optional}: Round up post

I am planning on doing week 1 thru 10 - you all know I have a bit of opinion on everything!  I also have a lot of "old" posts that you may not have read and this way they are all in one space. 

Here are the Details:  ( I stole them directly from Nykki!)
Your post can be what you want it to be. It’s important to outline how you use the product, your experiences with it, && your favorites. {&& then anything else you find important}. The posts should go up at 6:00 PM on Tuesdays UK time — I’m not sure how important this part is though. I think if you get it up on Tuesday you should be good to go. You don’t have to partake in weeks that you don’t want to.
Stephanie said on Twitter a few hours ago that there are over 55 bloggers interested in this thing — So you don’t want to miss out!
Make sure to use the hashtag #theSoproject when tweeting your posts and sharing! You will get plenty of eyes on your posts!

Thanks Stephanie and Nykki!

Hope you will enjoy!




  1. You'll be good at this! Can't wait to read your future posts, especially about Week 10, makeup tools.

    1. I hope I can drop some knowledge :) I like having planned out posts, it helps my scattered blog brain!

  2. What a great idea! Can't wait to read your posts on these topics!

    1. I think it will be lots of fun and make me really think about the basics of what I use and why.

  3. This will be cool, can't wait to see your posts, especially about skincare!

    1. I will warn you in advance not all my product loves are full of "good things", my face is probably filled with toxins :) But I am going to do my very best to find a vegan mascara by week 6!

  4. Looking forward to your posts. I know you have a lot of interesting things to share :)
