FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: My Pet Peeves As A Blogger + Dupes for MAC Rebel
Hello guys! Sawasdee ka! It's my second day in Thailand. I'm on a vacation so pardon me if this is just gonna be real quick. You know I love you guys and I can't afford to not give you your weekly dose of FMF! :D Our questions for today are from Eloisa, one of my long- time readers.
Hello Miss M,
Good pm! I have been a long time follower but this is just my first time to write to you. I have 2 questions. Medyo unrelated pero burning kasi e haha:
1) What are your pet peeves as a blogger? Do you get ticked off if a fan approaches you and you are in the middle of something?
2) Can you recommend a good and inexpensive lipstick like mac's rebel shade? I have been looking for that perfect plum berry pinkish shade. I am not a mac fan as it is expensive and i find it drying; though i have only tried ruby woo. I ended up giving it away.
Thanks and god bless.

Thanks for writing to me and for your entertaining comments, suggestions, and posts on my personal FB account. ;)
As for your question, I don't really get peeved if a fan approaches me while I'm in the middle of something. Because I'm very accommodating and nice like that-for real. But what I could only hope for is when the reader and I get into a conversation, and I begin to excuse myself or subtly end the conversation just because I have to get going or I really have to finish whatever I'm doing, the reader would be sensitive enough to let me go haha! :D
But as a Blogger, I have pet peeves and mostly, they're my fellow Bloggers as well, plus a few people from PR agencies. Here are the Top 2 that come to mind:
1. Freebie Bloggers- I was NEVER a freebie Blogger so I can speak with my hands clean. Such Bloggers taint the industry and they put decent Bloggers, whether new or seasoned, in bad light. I hope these Bloggers would realize that Blogging is not Charity.
2. Lazy PR Peeps- I am also a PR Consultant and as much as possible, I try to be professional and diligent by addressing the intended media contact/s by their full names in emails to a point where I try to find out their position in a certain magazine/newspaper/blog and include that in the message, too so it irks me to no end when a PR person sends out a lazy email with the intro "Hi Blogger" or "To Whom It May Concern" or "Hey!" Really? If you don't have time to find out who I am or what my name is, at the very least, I have no time to read your email as well. Sorry!
So yeah, that's all! Now let's go now to your second question: Dupes for MAC Rebel. These are the closest brands and shades that I recalled so click READ MORE for the list. ;)
Gotta run! Enjoy your Friday, guys! :D
