It was three years ago today that while sitting at my desk, and in desperate need of a diversion from my academic writing and translating, that I sought refuge by penning my very first beauty product review for Lola's Secret Beauty Blog. I had tried my hand at blogging a year earlier, but two of my beloved cats were simultaneously stricken with deadly forms of cancer, and I was rendered so devastated and heartbroken that my grief overshadowed my fledgling little blog. Once I was ready to resume my blogging journey it occurred to me that my skincare and makeup obsession needed an appropriate forum, and I looked at Lola who was snuggled up and purring in my lap, and decided that this lovely creature would lend her name to this blog as well.

This blogging journey, that started as a diversion, soon developed into so much more, and ultimately took on a life of its own. The greatest satisfaction that I gain from authoring these virtual pages is what it ultimately leads to, and that is interacting with lovely people. I have both virtually and actually met so many amazing people from readers, bloggers, publicists, sales associates, sales reps, makeup artists, estheticians, owners and CEOs of companies, affiliates, and managers to name but a few.
What Lola's Secret Beauty Blog has become is in large part because of you, and your loyal readership keeps me motivated to continue writing about my some of my favorite things. Cheers to all of you, and thank you so much for taking this blogging journey with me! xoxox, Helen & Lola =^..^=
