What’s up everyone! My name is Tara and I’m here to blog about whatever is on my mind (spoiler alert: it’s usually makeup).
I’d be most accurately described as a fashionista wannabe, a makeup lover, and a designer (hopefully not in that order). I’m currently a designer working for NJEA, piecing together the NJEA Review–a monthly publication that goes out to the lovely educators in this great state of New Jersey. I’m a Jersey shore, beach girl for life. I truly love it here.
So how did I come to blog and drink wine? It all started one late Thursday night. I just got home from work and wanted to relax on the couch and do my nails. But it was football Thursday, and the living room was overrun by my boyfriend and his friends (‘boys club’). So I left, went to Ulta, came back, and did my nails with a nice glass of Cabernet by my side.
My boyfriend, his friends and I made our jokes, but at the end of the day, we came to the conclusion that I should document my drinking wine and doing nails…but what should I call it? (I asked out loud). It was obvious. I drink wine and paint nails.
But it is so much more than that. That’s simply how it started. The original ‘idrinkwineandpaintnails’ was strictly nail tutorials and I will tell you something that the pros will not tell you: it is really, REALLY impractical to sit in a dimly lit and poorly ventilated room for hours at a time and grind away at my nails with the sweet aroma of nail polish and nail polish remover in the air, circulating with the rhythm of the fan. It was a lot easier in the fall than the winter.
Needless to say, the O.G. I drink wine and paint nails soon died off. But, I am back with a new I drink wine and paint nails and a new outlook. I drink wine and do a lot of things, why limit it to nails?
I’m here to share reviews, do makeup, DIY things around my house, and do some design, and obviously still paint nails, all while documenting it here for you. Also, please enjoy this important side note: I don’t always drink wine. In fact, it’s mainly for special occasions. While the birth of this blog was created over wine, it does not mean that everything here is created under the influence (BWI, blogging while intoxicated). Does that make me a fraud? I hope not, if anything it makes me one step closer to responsible adult…whatever that means. Sometimes I drink beer…maybe that part makes me a fraud.
If you like my logo, any of the design on my blog, or just need design work, please head over to my portfolio website or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Like I said, I’m a full time designer that wanted to blog about other stuff.
If you want to chat PR and discuss mailing, sponsors, anything else, email me at email@example.com (or I suppose either email, but for my organizational sake, use the latter). In fact, contact me with any questions at all, the sky is the limit.
Thank you for stopping by. I really appreciate you.
