Featured, Life, Other Musings

And We’re Back!

It’s been a minute since you guys have heard from me, sorry about that. Life happened in a very big way. Lots of changes, some of which you’ll see here on the blog. Others I will keep a bit closer to the vest, but I’m sure you will figure it out…moving on.

One of the most exciting changes is an addition to the NEO family. NO! It’s not a child (sorry I’m not sorry mom). It is my dear friend Lamia. She will be your NEO beauty guru to start. But I’ll let her tell you a bit about herself…

Blogosphere meet Lamia. Lamia meet Blogosphere.


Hello there! My name is Lamia and yes, I’m aware that it’s a challenge to pronounce. My good friend, Shannon, has graciously allowed me to hop onto her already established blog to live out my blogger dreams! I consider myself a lover of all things beauty and my goal is to contribute to that region of this blog. Among other things, like food and travel, because how can we NOT talk about that.

I’m originally from San Diego, CA and moved up to Long Beach to attend Cal State University, Long Beach. From there, I finished my undergrad with a degree in Vocal Performance and continued my love of singing opera. It was singing that brought Shannon and I together, when we met in the Long Beach Camerata Singers last year. And now, she isn’t getting rid of me anytime soon!

My goal in contributing to the blog is to access my creativity, share some of my insights and thoughts, and hopefully inspire others to try new things. Or at the very least, share in a good laugh! Along the way, I hope to share more about myself, and the things I love, and maybe you can share a little with me.
