One heart, out of two. One love, me and you.

September 26th, 2007, theNotice was born. Since then, we’ve done our fair share of things.Our first review, of the delicious Body Shop Cocoa Butter stick.

When we told you about our weight issues. I’m still dealing with this, and getting nowhere. It got better, but that didn’t stick. We started at 112, slid down slowly to 105, 104, 103. We plateaued on 102.4 for the longest time, and hit an all-time low at 99.7 pounds.

We were diagnosed with Wolff-Parkinson-Whyte. In retrospect, it was the best and worst possible thing that could have happened to me. Why? Because I fell in love with it. And now it’s gone.

Our family is so pathetically fucked up that it makes me want to scream, or cry, or possibly just take a tumble off the roof. And it’s all your fault. Thing is… if you weren’t here, it would be great. You know why? Because Dad‘s never home, moms my best friend, and my sister can be just what you need some days.

Started attaching lyrics to not only blog posts, but also people. This post; Stars.

Realized what I want, and what I cannot have.

We fixed your frizzy winter hair and shiny faces, not to mention saving your skin as you age by tipping you off to a great new sunscreen.

Found (and showed you) two really fantastic contour blushes.

We feel excluded every Sunday morning…but really, what are we missing?

Found a holy grail blusher. And even gave you a brush rundown so you can put it on every morning.

Talked about Sarah Palin, and it was well-recieved.

I scare myself shitless every night. Being hunted by serial killers that are mailmen and also demons. Killing my best friend. Having to pick only one person to save. Sending a little boy to hell. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Gave you guys a few awesome tutorials.

Tried to sell necklaces, put out some pretty cool series.

We ranted about age for a while. Told you about our baggage and our past classmates (as well as our current ones), and retold the story that can be summed up in two words: assault rifle.

Showed you a cool new liner, as well as a cult classic lippie.

Realized that, at then end of the day… I am broken.

But most importantly?

Over the year, I’ve grown to love theNotice. I mean, I started talking for both of us, for god’s sake. The amount of beauty content has been upped, but not for you – for me. We’ve networked and made friends, and refrained from turning a profit… it’s still undiluted honestly, weather I’m talking about makeup or making up.

I’ve definitely grown and changed as a person, and theNotice is growing up right next to me. We’re in it for the long haul.

    wow, for some reason I didnt realise your blog for so long! That’s awesome. So many bloggers keep on tempting me to make a blog with all their great entries and I need some practice with web designing (thinking of being a web developer when I’m older) so keeping a blog would be a good idea…

    Hopefully I will take the plunge soon :)

  • Rae

    It didn’t seem very long for me, either!

    Being a web designer sounds cool – I can’t wait to see what you come up with. And if you do take the plunge, give me a holler, and I’ll link!

    Will do :)

    yay for you! blogging is cheap therapy :P

  • Rae

    Lol!! Thank god I found blogging… imagine the therapy bill I would have rung up over the year!Actually, I wonder if I could get therapy for free. Mom's gov't job has a ton of benefits, great healthcare, and I'm covered under it! (ie. my sister's physiotherapist? Free! Her birth control? Free! My dental work? Actually, not free…entirely. They paid for the tiny filling but not for the extra costs that I incurred by being a WPW patient and needing a heart monitor just in case. Bastards.):P
