Introducing HELLO PRETTY! (AKA Why I've Been MIA For So Long)

Hi everyone!

So, I know I've been a really terrible blogger these past few months. But there's a good reason, I promise!

And the reason is....I've just launched a new beauty website! is now live, and the past few months have been extremely exciting, tiring, stressful, and invigorating while also leaving me teary-eyed at times.

How gorgeous is our logo??

With the fourth anniversary of the blog coming up, I felt like it was time to create something a little bit bigger than Pretty in the Desert. So Hello Pretty is a little bit like Pretty in the Desert's older, slightly more sophisticated sister. We will be publishing expert tips, makeovers, editorial shoots, videos and tutorials! I can't wait to share everything with you all!

Behind the scenes at my first shoot. Oh, hai Luanne!

Another shoot that is coming up soon!

Starting Hello Pretty has always been a dream that I've had, but it never seemed like the right time. I kept putting it off, until I realized that there would be no perfect time and things would always get in the way. But it seems like once I made the decision to start, everything just sort of fell into place.

I've had to do a lot of things that were outside of my comfort zone, but I'm really proud of myself for doing them (and surviving, lol) I can't wait to share the whole site with you guys! I'm also pretty terrified, LOL!

Anyway, I just wanted to share what I've been up to and why I've been so MIA this year. Thank you all so much for all of your support over the years! I started Pretty in the Desert as a way of sharing my beauty knowledge with my friends, and I never in a million years imagined it would take me on the journey that it's taken me on. So thank you to everyone that has ever read or posted on my blog and thanks to all the amazing new blogger friends that PITD has brought me! Seriously, your support has gotten me through some pretty dark times.

As for Pretty in the Desert, well this baby ain't going nowhere. Now that the website has gone live, I have a little more time to dedicate to PITD. The focus is going to change a little, I might throw in some fashion and lifestyle posts, but as a total makeup whore, you can still expect a few beauty posts!

Thanks again for sticking with me, despite my lack of posts this year. It really does mean a lot to me and I hope you like Hello Pretty and the new and improved Pretty in the Desert!
