As you can tell by the title, this is the first official post of Modern Glam. This blog has been in the making for a little while so is not completely perfect at the moment! We hope that over time we will have it exactly as we want it, but for now its in its baby stages.
The idea for the blog started a while back with the girls insisting I do one and me uumming and aaahing about it over the longest time! Eventually I got given some holiday off from work and I thought about it and then told the girls I was going to start a beauty blog which then prompted Chan to declare that she wanted to do one too! So then I told her we could do it together and have a joint one instead! So that's basically how the blog idea came about! After that we kind of went back and forth with names (me giving ideas and Chan telling me they were rubbish or taken)! Chan also wanted to set up an Instagram account for the blog too so we do have one its just not completely ready yet and in the future we might add Twitter and other forms of Social Media as a way for people to connect with us.
I/We want to say a massive THANK YOU to Sadia (Love you!) for giving me the title for this blog because otherwise I don't think I would have come up with anything appropriate and the ones I did come up with were taken or just not very good! Also a THANK YOU to Layzel (Love you too!) for loving our makeup looks! Me and Chan are not apologising for getting you hooked on makeup! THANK YOU to both of you for always supporting us no matter what, even if talking about makeup gives you nose bleeds and headaches!
We should probably tell you a bit about us too! We both started working around Christmas time last year in a department store and got chatting and discovered that we both love Makeup and are highly addicted to buying it, trying it and talking about it! Probably to the amusement of our friends and colleagues since that's all we seem to talk about! I still work in the same department store and Chan left and now works for a well known makeup brand.
We do want to put a disclaimer in place, we do buy our own products and aren't sent any to review etc. However since we both work in retail we do get staff discounts for products that we purchase from our places of work. This doesn't mean we're going to tell you a product is good and fantastically amazing if it isn't! We just want you to know in advance that we don't pay full retail price for the products that we purchase from our work places. If however we purchase from other places then we do pay full retail price since our staff discounts don't apply in other stores!
And that's it, I think! We just want to say a massive thank you for stopping by and we hope you enjoy the blog! if you have any questions or comments please leave them in the comments section or email us (ModernGlamBlog@gmail.com) and one of us should get back to you as soon as possible.
P.S: We know that the cookies thing at the top of the page is annoying every time you open the blog! But by law we do have to have it on there and don't have the option of removing it! We would if we could! Sorry!
Have a great day!
Lots of love
Rifa & Chan xx
