Proust Questionnaire | 2012

Last year, I promised myself and everyone who read this little blog that I'll be answering Vanity Fair's Proust Questionnaire every time I celebrated my birthday. Being the forgetful Lucy I am, I am only taking time down away from {spring} cleaning today to take a look at myself and the way I've lived.

Here's a random thought: Sometimes I wonder if I'm getting the wrong message across. Having a blog that's chock-full of reviews and musings about makeup and skincare --- I want you to know from the bottom of my heart, that looks are only secondary to who we are inside. I've got a lot of inner work to do, so do expect more of that in this blog. I would always and forever love prettifying myself and others but life is so much kinder and intrinsically wonderful with a life lived with gentleness and kindness --- two things I'm working on to achieving.
