How it all began
I've started BT on 11th Dec '06 and blogged sporadically until May '07, where I took a short hiatus as I was physically unwell. Anyway, prior to May, I have to admit that blogging was still a huge challenge for me as I'm very, very extremely technologically challenged. In other words, I'm a huge techtard. I was still groping around trying to figure out the blogosphere in my stride. I actually had to learn all about html and CSS by scratch, all on my own. Then come November '07, I've resumed blogging after I was physically fit again.
And then, bam, I was hit by a horrible outbreak of adult acne in mid Nov '07. This was actually a pivotal moment in my life and in BT. Also, due to my fixation with my battle against acne and spending ridiculously long and painful times in front of the mirror, I've started to notice alarming signs that I'm no longer the fresh faced kid that I was a decade back. I was zealously trying out almost every over-the-counter acne as well as anti-aging creams and just about tried it all. Did I forget to mention that it was a pivotally damaging moment for my bank account too *wink* I've had encountered numerous hillarious yet heartbreaking results in my quest for better skin. Based on a true incident, I've once turned my face yellow, just like I've walked out of the Simpsons set (I swear!). Tell you more about it next time round.
After my horrible acne outbreak, which lasted like f-o-r-e-v-e-r; and my health problems in May, I had an epiphany, a rather vain epiphany if I may add. I've finally realised all along that I was taking everything for granted. It's about time I take charge of my life and start taking better care of myself from my skin right down to my health and overall well-being. Hey, prevention is really better than cure! I would like to share my story and my journey in discovering beauty with everybody out there through Beauty Tyrant. Thus, marking the end of the tumultous year in '07, Beauty Tyrant finally took flight in beginning Jan '08 and I've never looked back ever since. Hence, Beauty Tyrant's motto, 'Beauty is YOUR Forte'. I would love to share with everybody my beauty tips and the gazillions of beauty and makeup products I've tried and tested along my beauty journey. Let me do all the dirty work for you!
