About Me

The Creator Of Batches Of BeautyHi! I’m Shalaria!

I’m also a nerd, geek or whatever name you’d like to call someone who loves reading, watching movies (horror films are my favorite) and learning new things.

In case you haven’t guessed, I also love to write and express myself freely. It’s just part of who I am. I can’t have it any other way.

I’m not a guru or an online “authority” for that matter and I’m not going to sit here and pretend I am. If I did, I’d be lying and I not only hate telling lies, I really suck at it.

I’m just a normal girl who likes to write about the things I’ve experienced in life. I’ve always kept a journal since I was old enough to write, and I guess I’ve just decided to upgrade from pen and paper to a computer with a keyboard.

I’m an open book, so if you ever want to know more about me feel free to drop me an email ( I always respond as long as it’s not spam) or you can always reach me by leaving a comment on any one of the numerous posts I have here.

My Passion Is Writing

I’m the daughter of a retired English teacher, so I started writing at a very young age. (Thanks, Mom!)

I love writing, and the only thing I love more than writing is writing about the things I love.

Promises I Can’t Keep

If you’re looking for an expert, I’m not it. I can tell you that right now. (Like I said, I’m not a liar).

I can’t tell you that everything I post will be interesting or useful to you. I’m a very random person and while I do try to help people where I can (like not sticking your hand under a lawn mower while it’s still running), that’s really as far as I can go (though I do hope you find at least some of my posts helpful in some way).

Promises I’ll Always Keep

I’ll always be honest about the things I post about. If I write a review, it’s going to be honest. I don’t mean to offend anyone, it’s just the way I am.

I’ll always give you my point of view. Just because I like something doesn’t mean I expect you to. You shouldn’t expect you to either.

I’ll always write. This blog isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, because this is my only outlet from the thoughts in my head. So if you like blogs that are constantly updated, you’ve definitely found one of many.

I can promise I will give you variety, that’s for sure.

I always respond to comments and emails (except SPAM, nobody likes that stuff) personally because I’m a real person. I’m not a persona and I’m not one of those people who writes for the popularity.

I write because I love writing and I love connecting with others who share the same interests as I do. I love writing because writing is part of my soul.

Sounds deep, but then again that’s yet another characteristic of me 🙂
