Life update + the future of Girl Terror

Posted on Saturday, November 8, 2014 by

Hey friends. The past few months of my life have been very crazy, and I just wanted to post a little update for those of you who regularly keep up with my blog and Youtube channel. You may have noticed I didn't complete my 31 Days of Halloween, nor have I continued my Netflix series so I wanted to offer a little explanation and some insight to what's happening with me and with Girl Terror.

What's been going on? As I mentioned in my August Box of Dread post, I left my full time retail job in July to pursue my lifelong dream, a career as a makeup artist. In addition to freelancing alone and with a business partner, I was working for Stila Cosmetics. Stila was a great bridge into the industry, I learned so much but I was required to commute roughly five hours a day, four days a week. Having three days off to focus on my social life and Girl Terror was wonderful, but I was exhausted, and I was broke.

In October I decided that something had to give, so I called it quits with Stila. I picked up a part time retail job to make some extra money, and recently began freelancing for a company called It Cosmetics. It Cosmetics is a newer brand and is growing rapidly; I'm making more money, and I'm still doing lots of networking. However, working both jobs has had me working almost 7 days a week and I haven't had any time to work on Girl Terror. Girl Terror means just as much to me as my makeup artist career, I love having a creative outlet for something that I'm deeply passionate about, and I love getting to know all of you. Last week, something amazing happened. I spent time working with my account executive at It Cosmetics, and I received more hours based on my performance. Additionally, I resigned from my part time retail position and as of this week I have freelance hours with a second skincare brand.

So, let's talk about the future of Girl Terror! I will be off three to four days a week(!!!) to create content. I will be making more money which means Girl Terror will probably become a .com within weeks. I will be opening a P.O. box to receive mail from you guys. The giveaway was very successful at driving traffic to Girl Terror, and I love giving back to you, so I would like to see more of them happen in the future. Eventually, I would like to work with small horror related businesses for sponsorship on giveaways and maybe even ad placement so I can fund bringing you even more fun things. I am so so so excited to get back into the swing of things and push content on Girl Terror. This is truly so much fun for me and I am so thankful to have support from so many wonderful horror fans. I can't wait to see what the future holds for Girl Terror!

I am always open to communication with you guys, and love to keep in touch. Please drop me a comment, email, or Facebook message, if you have any blog ideas, movie recommendations, cool horror merch for me to check out, or if just want to chat!

Thanks for reading (and for all of your continued support!) XOXO
