Very Inspiring Blogger Awards


I’m so thankful to Wear Your Vitamins for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

I’ve been blogging since summer 2012 and it has been so much fun thus far. I started my blog after graduating from law school so that I could pursue my passion for writing, research, and make-up.  My more particular mission—and my motivation for starting my blog—is to see cleaner ingredients in beauty products sold in the U.S. despite a lack of regulation by the FDA. The community that One Product at a Time has created has been beyond wonderful and exciting.

Thank you so much for reading!

7 Things About Myself:

1. I am really short, but the majority of my life I was tall– so despite my height now (short)— I feel really tall. People often comment that I seem really tall when I’m sitting down and when I stand up its always a surprise, really, I get this a  lot.

2. I have Type 1 Insulin Dependent Diabetes– its a bitch and annoying, but its manageable if you work on it. If you or someone you love just got diagnosed send them my way, we can chat!

3. I own an unruly amount of striped clothing.

4. I love the beach and hate the sand.

5. I’ve had a fear of dancing since I was three. When I am in situations where dancing might happen I panic. When actually asked to dance, my heart races and my chest tightens. This was until one particular dance party where my friends forced me to dance. I don’t recall all of the details; they are unimportant, what is important is what happened after we finished dancing. After the dancing was over, I could not remember what anyone else was doing, not a single thing, no dancer stuck out in my head, nothing seemed memorable— it was here that I realized that no one is watching and no one cares. There were no judges waiting for a Jewish girl with no rhythm to show up and out perform their expectations. No one was waiting for me to screw up. I am now over this fear and it is mindblowingly awesome– I just signed up for dance classes and this past Tuesday I actually swing danced, in public, with a stranger in front of a bar full of people!

6. I am an only child so my friends are like family– I love them, I choose them wisely and have the best support system!

7. I love getting mail. I know the UPS guy where ever I live and the postal person too! Subscription boxes have really helped in this area of my life– I do Ipsy, Birchbox and Haute Papier.
