Red Lip Gloss...Back In Action!

Me in Bali.  Pretty much the most tanned I've ever been!
I've been sitting here staring at my computer screen for the last 10 minutes without attempting to write anything. I've been away from the blogging world for a couple of months and trying to formulate why I've been away is very difficult for me.  I guess I'll begin with...

After the wedding and our honeymoon, I lost focus on the direction I wanted Red Lip Gloss to go.  At first, I thought by trying to obtain new followers and sponsors I would achieve a blog that was settled and globally accepted.  Then, I realized that it wasn't the direction I wanted to be going in at all.  By being on that path, I was becoming very unmotivated and the desire to write about the products and items I love disappeared.  So, after giving it a lot of thought, I've decided to come back to blogging BECAUSE I love writing, I love the blogging community, I adore makeup and I miss the social interaction.  I owe a lot my renewed spirit to all of you!  Not only for taking the time to read my blog(s) BUT for your continued support, comments, emails and letters.  Honestly, you all made me realize how much blogging means to me.  THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH.

So, here I am, back and ready to tell you all about my amazing new purchases and finds.  But first, here's what I've been up to since Halloween.

1) I'm officially gluten and wheat free!  This was a big change for me, as I adore breads and carbs, but this change has made my skin glow, my hair and nails grow like crazy and I feel so much better.  Plus, losing those extra pounds has really made me feel like a whole new person!

2) I'm running again.  I am trying to get back onto an exercise routine and I really started to miss running.  So, instead of spending a ton of money going to a gym, I'm pounding the pavement instead!

3) I am back in love with coffee.  Tea is still right up there for me but I can actually drink coffee again without getting heartburn (YAY for gluten free dieting!)

4) I am planning mine and Allan's newest adventure to South East Asia.  We will be backpacking for three months starting at the end of November 2013.  (For those that aren't aware, we blogged about our honeymoon in Bali and will be blogging our entire journey on our sister blog, The Antsy Travelers.)  More on this trip to come later.

Anyway, I am back and ready to blog.  Stay tuned for DIY Beauty Fridays, guests posts and many new product adventures.

I love you all and I am so glad to be back!
