I admit that I am always tickled when I hear that my men friends read DivaDebbi
. Peter Sachse, Macy's Chief for Innovation and Business Devlopment,
is a regular, and I am deeply flattered that he finds it relevant.
Two of my friends at Equinox
and is always
trend savvy, stylish son Jack,
were asking me just the other day, about my blog and how long I have been writing it....It dawned on my that I probably just hit my 7 year anniversary
. Looking back through the archives (available on my front page, by month), I started writing DivaDebbi
in March 9th of 2007
I'm probably only a hair more tech adept, but along the way, I have met fantastic
people, including some powerhouse beauty and fashion bloggers, heard from readers all over the world, created new relationships with many PR, media and marketing partners, earned two Brand Ambassadorship's (RoC and La Peau Skincare
), penned a fashion column for a year for WAG Magazine
, attended fabulous events, stretched my brain muscles, slathered my face and body with every conceivable lotion and potion and caused my UPS delivery guy a aches and strains along the way.
good and I am ever appreciative of all my loyal readers and partnerships If you will continue to read, I will continue to write.
I thought it would be fun to share my very first blog with you. As friends have always told me, they "hear my voice" in my writing. It was interesting for me to reflect on this post and experience the very same thing!
You're the best!
xox and my thanks,
Just Getting Started....
O.K., I have no idea what I am doing yet, not even sure how I will find my own blog again, but gotta give this a whirl...I have been consistently obsessed with all things beauty and fashion related for the last 30 years or so. Happily I have dear friends who can attest to it and fabulous new friends and clients over the years who have all been on the receiving end of my blast emails about my latest discovery that must be purchased pronto.
If you will read, I will write...
My first wrinkle creme was Dorothy Grey Night Creme
. It came in a lavender jar and I purchased it at age 12
. I think even then, it was marketed towards mature skin, but in the spirit of sooner than later, I slathered.
I googled Dorothy Grey and would you believe there are still some 5000 products out there??? I imagine they all have an inch or two of dust on them...scary.
I soon graduated onto pilfering my sister's Clinique 3 Step System
nightly (which she will learn about first right here)....ooohhh that fabulous cucumber colored sliding soap dish....As I contemplated taking this on, I mentally went way back and remembered many of my early obsessions...
, in those adorable orange and pink striped tubes with black scrolls ( I actually found one on ebay)!, Love's Baby Soft and Fresh Lemon Perfumes, Misty Mocha and Misty Lilac Revlon nail polish, Karen Graham of Estee Lauder ad fame, Psssst dry shampoo, Sun In Highlighting spray, Calgon
take me away....
So, if any of this rings a bell, I am the girl who thankfully gave up suntanning with Reynolds wrapped double album covers long before I hit my 20's and has learned a thing or two along the way. I will share all that I try and scour reading, with you, my readers.
My business is fashion, so if you think I will resist writing about Stars on the Red Carpet
, I couldn't possibly, not.
I am nearly in hives waiting in anticipation of Stars who blow it, despite having the best designer offerings and stylists at their disposal...think Tilda Swinton
accepting this year's Academy Award
in a Hefty trash bag....
So, I hope you will check in and if you like my blog, share it, put me in your favorites (I would, if I knew how)...
Dish with the Diva anytime....what were some of your earliest, fondest beauty memories and products???
