Hello everyone! I thought it would be fun to give a rundown of the top 10 products that you all purchased from Blushing in Hollywood this year! I’m always so curious what piques everyone’s interest and who can inspire them to actually hit the checkout button! All of the items were from my Real Housewives/Bravolebrities Beauty Secrets series so I will include which star rocks each product!
Season 8 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premiers tomorrow Tuesday December 19, 2017 at 9/8c on Bravo. In celebration of the upcoming season I wanted to do a round up of all of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills blog posts I’ve done before.
This season of RHOBH features Lisa Vanderpump, Erika Girardi aka Erika Jayne, and Kyle Richards all of which I have written about, plus Dorit Kemsley is returning. Camille Grammer will be returning full-time as a friend-of the housewives and Adrienne Maloof will return as a guest star.
The newest RHOBH will be Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is a 38 year old wellness accountability coach for her company LA Workout Junkie. She is singer John Mellencamp’s (“Jack & Diane”, “Hurts So Good”) daughter. John Mellencamp has 5 children from his 3 marriages and Teddi Jo and her sister Justice are from his second marriage to Victoria Granucci.
I started Blushing in Hollywood because I wanted to make a YouTube channel, but didn’t have a proper camera. The blog seemed like a good way to dip my toe into the online beauty community and to talk about my other favorite topic- dating. One thing I love about the blog is although it hasn’t created its own “beauty community” it still connects me to people constantly. I love when friends I haven’t talked to in years send me Facebook messages or texts asking for beauty advice!
One thing I didn’t realize about blogging before I started was the endless learning process it becomes. From HTML to SEO, graphic design, wordpress.com vs. .org, image optimization, Google analytics, legal terms and conditions, lighting, camera specs, etc. I’ve learned a TON this past year. I figured you just started a free blog and wrote some good content and then people would read it and send you cool free stuff and you’d make money, but nope it’s not quite that simple. I definitely need to thank all of my friends and family for their support with the blog! It wouldn’t be what it is today without their encouragement, ideas, support, help, etc. Thank you all!! If you’re thinking about starting a blog just go for it! You don’t have to be the best at anything or be an expert to share what you love and what you’re passionate about.
I thought it might be fun for the first birthday/anniversary of BIH to post the
I scoured the internet for Lisa Vanderpump’s makeup and beauty secrets and now I will share them with you! A lot of the tips are from the same one or two interviews that were just copied and rewritten so I’ll start with an excerpt from her book Simply Devine:
My Morning S & M I am a firm believer in getting yourself ready in the morning top to toe, hair washed, make-up on, before you leave the house. Yes, I’ll admit when the children were small I did sometimes drive them to school in my pajamas. And it was Sod’s Law (Murphy’s Law, I believe you call it) that every time I tried to escape unnoticed, I would run into the last person on this planet that I wanted to see me looking a disheveled mess! I believe if you take care of yourself first in the morning, your frame of mind is different and you will be prepared for all eventualities. I, at least, now that my children are grown, will try to never give it up again. I think I will color my hair until they carry me off in a box!
If you don’t know, Lisa Vanderpump is a housewife from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules. She is also a mother, a restaurateur, and a damn good business woman. She also does the interior design for all of her restaurants and clubs and has incredible taste.
I have been to 2 out of 3 of her restaurants Villa Blanca and Sur, but I haven’t been to her newest venture Pump (yet!). I also have met Lisa Vanderpump at her book signing (and oddly enough her daughter Pandora was my server at Villa Blanca less than a year ago..):
