Shyly I Emerge

Ok, here goes.  I have been procrastinating writing this first post, because the interweb can be a scary, scary place, full of trolls.  I have wanted to embark on this journey for a while but wasn’t sure where to start.  So, my husband came up with the idea of focusing on Canadian products, and things that you can only get in Canada.  Great!  Now, I can tell you that everything I write about may not fit that description, but I never order things that don’t have reasonable shipping rates, unless I can’t live without it.  There may also be a smattering of DIY's, because I love them!  Now onto the intro! 

My name is Shannon, I grew up in BC, but currently live in Nova Scotia.  Makeup is my passion.  Well, more like my addiction.  My first foray into makeup was when I was a toddler, and I decided to draw a masterpiece on my face with Mom’s red lipstick.  I have been hooked ever since.  

My sister and I would get into the Halloween makeup, whenever the urge hit us, anytime in the year.  We would dress up, and make ourselves into various (and very creative) characters.  Mom never discouraged us or got mad at the mess we made, or the fact that we were using up all of the makeup, and (sometimes) dipping into her makeup bag as well.  Instead, she patiently waited until we finished (and arranged our equally creative outfits), and proudly took pictures.

So however you stumbled upon this site, welcome!  And please bear with me, as I am new to this, and this site is under construction, as I am sure I will change the look and format on this page several times before settling.  So thank you for reading, and please come back soon!
