Alright. So I am a week and a bit late on the promise I made in my last post saying that the freshly made-over website would be up and running in early August. I apologize!
But better late than never right … and better that we had it put together perfectly first too. Right?!
So welcome! Welcome to my super duper, flashy, awesome new site for BlushPretty.com and BlushPretty: Makeup+Hair Artistry. It’s taken me 8 years, and much fiddling with things like widgets, social media, photoshop, and what-not to break out of my comfort zone and try a new platform for the site. I really hope you like it.
From this new site (which is mobile device friendly might I add) you can:
stay up to date on beauty news with the blog
check out artist portfolios (that is, when I add in all the photos!)
find out what services we offer
view behind the scene images from our tumblr page
check out our latest creatives from our photoshoots
Fun, right? Yeah. I know!
We will be getting back to our regular posting schedule starting next week (yay!). In the meantime, there are a lot of people who deserve some finger snaps.
I would really like to thank Natasha B of NLB Production for creating this new site for me, really listening to what I wanted and knowing beforehand what I needed. She has put up with a lot from me over the years: creating graphics, adding some cool features, doing a bunch of stuff I had no clue about … only for me to change/edit/delete/re-add it/mess-it-up-and-ask-for-help at a later date. (Sorry Natasha!) She’s the kind of designer you want: executes everything as you wanted it … but doesn’t keep you from trying to do your own things!
A lot of the new images you have been seeing lately from the team and on this site are courtesy of a group of fantastic photographers! A good friend of mine, Jonathan Ponce, long ago introduced me to Rhommel Bernardino, who the team regards as our head photographer guy! Sounds professional right? Rhommel in turn introduced us to his photography group and we now welcome (and often drive crazy – like up the wall and out the door nuts kind of crazy) Kin Hai and Jeoff Francisco as part of the BlushPretty team … but we don’t let them do makeup or hair … just the photos. I couldn’t have built this team and their portfolios without these three guys. Really. We owe them a lot. Thanks boys. Honourable mentions should also go out to Ming, Dimitris, Pavel, and Ed.
Last but not least, I really do have to thank my WHOLE team. The artists who have joined BP whether from three years ago or just a couple of months back have really encouraged the development and growth I have always wanted to see BlushPretty make. In addition, Elaine elaine elaine … thanks to Elaine and her mutant like organizational skills, I have been able to push other areas of the business forward while she sweats the small stuff. I make her sweat a lot. Thanks Elaine (and sorry!)
Okay – I’ve typed to much. Perhaps because I haven’t written anything in like three weeks!
Enjoy the new site folks!
