So I've decided to post some of my favorite blog posts, every now and then.
The first one that left a lasting impression in my mind so much so that even 5 months later I still think about it when insomnia hits and laugh under the covers, is "NKOTB" (New Kid On The Blog) by Witoxicity. It is the funniest post by a beauty blogger I have ever come across. I laughed so hard, tears came out. Many thanks to Mara for sharing this post in her blog 5 months ago and in a way introduced me to Witoxicity.

I’m the New Kid On The Blog. I have openly admitted that I’m a makeup late bloomer, so I might as well fess up and say that I’ve been quite a makeup jargon dummy too. Everybody has to start somewhere! Trying to guess the meanings of abbreviations and acronyms in the early days was like a fun sport for me, a kind of mental jogging.
One of the first abbreviations that I came across when I was researching makeup for problem skin last year was MMU. Since the topic was on makeup and not on a university in Manchester, I quickly realised that it stood for mineral makeup. And while on the subject of MMU, have you ever tried EDM? I have bought several products from Everyday Minerals, including its flat top brush which has received very good reviews. It’s really a great face brush……but I digress.
Well, there was also MUA. After circling the internet block quite a bit, I found out that MUA could mean Makeup Alley, the popular beauty community website, and it could also stand for makeup artist, though the latter is sometimes also represented by MA, I think.
