So I have finally decided to enter into the world of blogging!  This is a HUGE step since I have been wanting to do this for awhile now but the fear of “will anyone read it” or “do I have anything to talk about” has stood in my way.  So I am pushing fear aside and moving forward.
I am sure like everyone’s first blog, this is more of an introduction into my world. So here we go…
Hello, my name is Annastina (think Christina, but take the Chris out, add Anna and you get Annastina).  I am in love and obsessed with colors and textures.  I love anything bright, beautiful, and that has bling!  As a little girl, I would go to the craft store with my mom and I would have to touch EVERYTHING!  Just to feel the textures…fabric, feathers, beads…whatever I could get my little hands on.
Another obsession of mine is my job as a makeup artist.  I love being able to create and transform faces with makeup.  Since I was little, I was always putting makeup on myself or my dolls.  It took me awhile to pursue this passion and dream of mine, which I will talk about in a later blog but other than marrying my husband, it was the best decision I have ever made.  Let’s just say, it has brought me back to life.
So what to expect from my blog??? Well makeup, of course!  I will be doing reviews on products and talking about my career and what a whirlwind this chapter in my life has been.  I also want to talk about different chapters in life that we all go through…the triumphs and the falls.  Everyone has issues or problems they deal with on a daily basis, but how you deal with them will mold you into the person you will become.
One of my all time favorite quotes is from Marilyn Monroe… "Everyone's a star and deserves the right to twinkle."  I am hoping that this blog is my turn to give a little “twinkle” to everyone.
This picture is a favorite of mine.  I was 3 or 4 and was caught by my mom (that’s why I am crying) after I went upstairs to take a nap but instead got into her makeup and decided that myself, my teddy bear, and the bed needed a makeover with her red lipstick!!!
Hope you enjoy!

I must say, knowing your Mom, and also having kids who are "supposedly taking a nap and also get into my makeup", I find this picture a total riot! I just found your blog and will continue to enjoy reading it!
