Happy Birthday, Storybook Apothecary! 

The weirdest thing happened. I got so caught up with my new apartment that I forgot today is a very special day; hence why I’m writing this post so late in the day. On this day, 3 years ago, I made the decision to start a blog. Back then, I was making my own face powders on Etsy so I thought it would be cool to share my skincare knowledge and experiences with people at the same time. Since then, I’ve found that I prefer to share my experiences with other brand products than make my own – Making your own skincare brand is HARD so respect to those who do it!

In the 3 years since I’ve started this blog, I’ve met some incredible people; other bloggers, brand reps, brand founders, and so many inspiring people. I’ve even made a few friends who have, amazingly, been with me since the early days. It’s weird to think I’ve been chatting to them for 3 years now because they seem like great friends and like no time has passed. That’s really the reason I began blogging.


Blogging Saved My Life. 

In 2012, I was overweight, depressed, stuck in a horrible job, and basically hating life. I now realize I started blogging as a kind of cry for help, a way to reach out to others who felt the struggle…because the struggle is REAL haha. No, but really, I feel like in a lot of ways, blogging has saved me from myself. My negative thoughts, my doubt, my fears. It’s opened up a whole world to me in which I can recreate myself over and over again, meet new people who love the same things I love, and share my art with the world whether it be through simple, fun beauty reviews, makeup looks, fashion ideas, my indie film work, or other random things I think about throughout the days.

Thank You <3

Thank you all, all of you, from the bottom of my heart for following me this long. It means the world to me. Let’s keep on keeping on together by lifting each other up and sharing the beauty of the world, the good news, the happiness and smiles, and all the possibilities of what can be. We all deserve to believe in that and I hope my blog can help you believe in yourself, in love, in magic just a little more each day.

Here’s to another wonderful year with you wonderful lot 🙂
