Firstly I would personally like to thank each and every one of you for your continuous support with Kiss and Makeup. You may recall a while back that when I introduced the newest writer to the blog, Gemma, that we asked should we keep the name or should we think of something different. A lot of you said keep the name as it’s what I am known for and I really do agree with that however one of my close friends said that it didn’t matter what we were called that we would be supported anyway (you know who you are pal). This comment really hit home for me as although I adore the name Kiss and Makeup it represents me (Anita) and not myself and Gemma as a partnership, plus when you search the internet there are tonnes of people with similar names to this.
So, we decided that we would change the name. But what should it be? Well, we went back to basics? What is the aim of our blog? We want to create a community where not only do we give advice to people and recommend products that we like or give out about products that we don’t like but also a place where you can all join in and express your views on certain products, or the latest fashion trends or really anything that is on your mind. We want to create a relaxed atmosphere, less regimental and more like a chat with the girls. And so www.chatterbox.ie was born. We really adore the name and hope you feel the same. It represents exactly what we are about and also it’s the name of one of our fav Mac lipsticks, so that couldn’t hurt right???
We have a new website designed by the amazing John at JCIT (website www.jcit.ie). We told him exactly what we wanted and he delivered a beautiful and sophisticated blog that was beyond our expectations. Please come and check it out www.chatterbox.ie. There are some old posts that we copied from Kiss and Makeup with Me (old blog) but also there are some new ones and there are plenty more new blog posts in the pipeline. We would also be thrilled if you could follow us on all our other social media sites where we will be in contact with you all daily and keeping you all up to date on the latest beauty and fashion trends.

Also we will have some really great competitions on our social media pages in the next few days so be sure to follow us and share with all your friends.
So what’s next for Kiss and Makeup then? Well I plan to keep my Facebook page going into the future but instead of sharing blog posts I will be sharing with you pictures of the nails and makeup that I have created. Very similar to what I did when I first began! It will be a great place to gain inspiration or simply just to look at nice and pretty pictures.
Again, I would like to thank you all for all from the bottom of my heart for your support and both myself and Gemma look forward to interacting with you all and having girly chats about all the pretty things in the world. We believe that people’s lives can get pretty hectic at times and women, especially mothers sometimes put others before themselves and forget that they are important too so if we can create a place where people can go and look at posts about light and fluffy things and distract them from reality for even ten minutes then we feel our mission is complete. Also, money can be tight at times and wasting money on rubbish products and not so pretty fashion trends is something that isn’t ideal so hopefully by us narrowing down what products and trends are worth the investment and ones that are not then this will help you save your cash for more important purchases. That’s the plan anyway!!
Have a lovely day beauties!
