Not the first or the last, but...

I am finally making a beauty blog after years of just thinking about making one. I plan to post beauty related things here. Pictures, possibly even videos, product reviews, of all things hair, skin, and nails. Plus maybe the occasional random look-what-I-made knitted or baked thing. And my cats. Because you can't have a blog without pictures of cats.

My name is Liz. I've been a licensed Cosmetologist since 2003. I guess you could say that I specialize in cutting and perms since I don't do color at the moment (except for my own) and I rarely do styles. I have worked in a select service salon for the past 6 years. As much as I would like to branch out and do full service, I love where I work.

I got into hair because of my sister. Throughout high school I was always coloring my hair and getting it cut, so my sister suggested that I might like doing hair on other people.

I started doing my own nails in 2006 to save money and because I couldn't find anyone in my area who could do nails how I like them. I started out with acrylics and have branched out to gels and now I either use all gel or a combination of both gel and acrylic depending on what I am going for.

I have never made tutorial videos before, but I am hoping to give that a go.

I'm not sure what else to put here, so if you have any questions or comments about what I post here, feel free to comment.
