Hello and welcome!
I’m Tine, and I’m the editor of Beautyholics Anonymous.
Ladies, I’m a beautyholic.
Okay, there isn’t such a word, but I reckon that’s what I am. I love trying out new products (if I can afford them). I’m crazy about skincare. I love makeup. It’s like I’m addicted to buying (and hoarding) beauty products and and I love shopping. Oh how I adore shopping.
I think this could be a great place for all beauty bloggers, beautyholics and shopaholics (you know who you are!) to exchange valuable tips. You never know what you can learn from one another. I learned so much from all the beauty blogs and websites I read. I kid you not when I say that blogging has changed my life significantly. Best part of beauty blogging? Meeting all you amazing people! Suffice to say, if you love makeup AND chocolate, you and I will get along splendidly.
Just a bit about me – I’m originally from Malaysia. I moved to Australia in February 2008 after I got married. It was a new chapter in my life which I embraced with a bit of apprehension and lots of excitement. I now call Melbourne home and love it to bits. I’m also a full-time blogger and a freelance web designer. I enjoy working with people on creating the perfect story and a place on the web for them to call their own.
My blog focuses on Asian women (especially those with combination skin because that’s what I have), which I think is a good thing as, more often than not, a lot of Asian women find that they can’t seem to find beauty products suitable for their skin. There are so many out there, just waiting to be discovered.
My motto? Beauty comes in all sizes, not just a size 2. So no tiny pieces here, ladies. Let’s be proud of our bums!
Other than beauty talk, I also write about all things blogging every Wednesday in a series called Bloggie Wednesdays. It’s a day of the week where I write about tips and tricks about blogging and social media. It has grown to become the most popular series on BA. I must admit I’m pretty darn chuffed and proud of it!
I would love to hear from you. Find me on Twitter, chat with me on Facebook, stalk my pictures on Instagram, find my pins on Pinterest, whatever floats your boat. Or, if you prefer, do drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
