"These bags under my eyes are Prada."
I launched SBK two years ago today as an outlet to invite fellow style lovers into what I like to call my "Glamourland" as a source of daily inspiration. What I didn't know is how popular my Glamourland would become right off the bat! The messages and emails I receive from everyone keeps me motivated and excited in this hectic world of fashion and beauty and I will forever cherish these moments ;). A special thank you to all of the companies who have partnered with me in these first two years!
Over the past several weeks, I've been busy revamping both SBK and MHB. I hope you guys are enjoying the new layout for SBK :D. My goal was to make the site better in navigation and shopping. I've also been working on something special for SBK but its still in the early stages and won't be released for quite sometime.
I launched the first portion of my beauty line Marie Hunter on March 20th, and in a world full of beauty brands to choose from I am overwhelmed by the amount of support my line is receiving! MH is a luxury beauty line where you will find quality products, services and pricing comparable to other top beauty brands. My motto "Confidence Speaks Volumes" reflects in my products and services. Thank you to everyone who has liked, shared and purchased from Marie Hunter Beauty. New products will be released this summer, you guys have been highly requesting lip glosses and lip pencils and they will be available in the next few weeks. MHB is also thankful to have Bang Salon as an official retailer! You can learn more about MHB at mariehunterbeauty.com.
The revamping of the SBK|MHB office is almost complete! I got the SBK office last May but shared the space with someone else who has since recently relocated. I am so excited to finally have my own space and will be posting pictures or a video tour when its complete. I'll also be doing a different post about my learning experience as an entrepreneur soon. It is not as thrilling as it appears to be but the struggle is so worth it!
I hope you guys enjoyed this little update! I hope you will continue to join me in my Glamourland as we enter year 2! I'll leave this post by answering a few FAQ's that I receive about SBK. Have a glamorous week!

1) Who takes your pictures?
Everyone thinks I have a professional photographer but I don't :D Photography credit goes to someone close to me ;).
2) What kind of camera do you use?
Nikon D3000. Although its time to invest in a new lens and play around with the images more.
3) Where do you take your pictures? How do you choose a location?
Its very seldom that we have a specific place in mind where we want to shoot. We mostly just drive around until we find a location that suits my outfit that day. Pictures are mostly taken throughout the Sun Prairie and Madison area. We try to shoot at locations where there aren't a lot of people, so location and time is important when shooting for SBK.
4) Is your clothing and accessories free because you're a Blogger?
Ha! I wish, lol, that's just a fairy tale and bloggers don't get everything paid for. My clothing and accessories are paid for by ME. On occasions I will have sponsored post where an item(s) may have been sent to me for review but that would be noted in the sponsored post.
