About me

I push pixels and bling stuff out for a living. I was born and raised on the beautiful (albeit slightly boring) island of Hawaii where I'm living happily with my Mr. Right. I'm a proud parent of a furbaby malti-pom named Happy and an axolotl named Kiwi.

I'm passionate about lots of things, especially body modification and all types of art. I have a B.A. degree in Art and aside from graphic design I also enjoy drawing/painting/sculpture. Music is my religion -- Fall Out Boy, Pierce The Veil, and Dayshell are my cure-alls. I'm Korilakkuma, Loki, and Iron Man-obsessed. Also an avid Yelp-er and always on the lookout for new food spots.

My interest in  makeup started when I was in the 8th grade. Since then, I'd like to think that I have really improved my makeup skills and knowledge, but I am by no means a pro. I just enjoy playing around with makeup :)


About the blog

{ e.motion in: motion; } began in December 2008. I created this blog after not being able to find  beauty product reviews that were detailed and thorough enough for my liking. So I figured, "Why not start writing my own blog and doing reviews the way I'd like to see them?" And that's what sparked my journey into the beauty blogging world.

However, a few months after I began writing; due to some unfortunate circumstances, ALL of my blog posts were deleted. Over 100 product reviews, tutorials, etc. were lost, so I had to start from scratch. And here I am today! I strive to provide detailed, honest, interesting and informative reviews  in an easy-to-read format with high quality pictures/swatches.

The name { e.motion in: motion; } is just I phrase I'm fond of, and I think showcases quite well what I blog about: my passions and interests -- My emotions, in motion. Cheesy, I know... You can read the full story here.

Through the world of beauty blogging, I have gained so much knowledge and ideas, had opportunities to try out new products, as well as made many friendships... and I am very grateful for that :) Thank you for visiting my blog, and I hope you enjoy your stay~
