Blogs to Check Out, Behind the Scenes, and a Thank You

Hello, lovelies! Welcome to this Sunday's Chit Chat post. I hope you had a nice weekend. I want to address 3 things in this post: 1) my lovely July advertisers and why you should check out their blogs, 2) a bit of a sneak peek of what goes on behind the scenes (literally) at The Beauty Milk, and 3) thank everyone who liked my Instagram contest entry picture. More pictures and info after the cut.
Blogs to Check Out
Velia's photography and overall blog layout are flawless. She has a beauty blog called Cocoamourr where she posts reviews of popular and hyped up products. Her blog has a lot of variety so I enjoy reading it every single week. She's 19 years old and from New York. Truly a sweet girl! Check her out!
Emeralds and Stripes is a blog run by 25-year-old Liz. She's such a sweetheart! I love her blog because it really shows her personality. Plus, she doesn't stick to a single genre. Liz writes about beauty, fashion, books, movies, and general lifestyle topics. She also makes YouTube videos. Check her out!

Behind The Scenes
I noticed I had accumulated a few "behind the scenes" pictures of the process of photographing products and makeup looks for my blog. I decided to share them because I love seeing other bloggers show their personal blogging process. Everyone's is different and I think it's fun to show readers a different perspective. My cat Missy always wants to know what I'm up to when swatching and photographing products. She sometimes even runs off with my lipsticks!

A Huge Thank You
I want to thank everyone who liked my Instagram picture. I apologize if I bothered you with my several tweets asking for likes, the contest is over now. Also, thanks to everyone who retweeted those tweets. Your likes helped me qualify for the final round and I was then picked as the first place winner by the judges! Whaaat! I'm ecstatic, I don't think I've ever won a contest before (unless you count the free anti-virus I won in a high school raffle, lol). It was a local L'Oreal contest and I won a gift basket full of L'Oreal products. Yay!

So that concludes my Sunday Chit Chat. Thank you for stopping by!
