Hi all ... I just wanted to leave a message for all of you that follow this blog, because I think that you are the ones that I can consider real friends and those that I definitely do not want to lose contact with.
I am going to rant a little bit ... I am sick and tired of participating in a community where it is wrong to have an opinion different other than someone else ... wrong to love something that isn't "sanctioned" and most of all ... really tired of being told to take my thoughts and conversations elsewhere when those that I care about exist in the community that I am being pushed out of. I will not be doing that anymore ... because I refuse to throw support behind such a place. Those of you that know me through the online makeup world know exactly what I am referring to. And no ... I am not referring to Specktra.
Yes ... I know that it is just makeup ... but that has opened alot of doors to friendships that I never would have had otherwise. For those of you that are not terribly familiar with me, up until about six months ago I was all about Bare Escentuals. Then I got back into MAC and I love MAC ... always had ... and I knew when I started using BE that eventually I would add MAC back in because the products are just amazing. Alot of people in the community that I used to love being a part of have issue with that ... even though it is not their face.
I know that many of you signed up for this blog thinking that you were going to see BE all the time ... and for a while that is how it worked. I still love BE ... always will in certain ways ... but I am allowed to use whatever I want and TALK ABOUT whatever I want and it isn't hurting anyone. If you don't follow this blog as much as others because lately it has been mostly MAC then I am sorry you have lost interest. I will still be using my BE ... and just trying to get through all my new stuff, which is MAC stuff.
I am going to miss alot of people ... because many of those that I hold dear in that community do not check this blog and therefore will never read this message. Sisboo, Lisa, Cynthia, Aileen, Tasha and many of you others that I know may disagree with my response to the recent policy changes and happenings in our community ... I hope you can see past our possible difference in opinion and still keep in touch. I love all of you dearly and consider you real friends ... and the thoughts of letting a split in the community destroy that makes my stomach turn.
For those of you that read all the way through this ... thank you ... and if it doesn't make sense please feel free to post. Those of you that are a part of the community will understand what I mean immediately ... and are free to disagree with me. I just find so many things that are wrong and violating there are the moment that I have to back away from it for now. I love you all dearly ... and thanks for keeping up with the rant.
