squeeface asked: Congrats on the engagement you lucky woman! Are we going to get a glimpse of your ring?
:’D Thank youu! I am very lucky to have such a great guy in my life <3 And maybe! I’m thinking of starting another blog on the side to document my engagement/wedding planning… because I foresee it being very entertaining haha. Does anyone think this is a good idea??
toekneeuh asked: I love your blog and thanks for all your help. Congrats on your engagement! I hope everything goes well for you.
Thank you so much hon! That really means a lot, and I appreciate it :) I hope so too, haha! <3
ksie asked: Hiiii!!! Do you have a twitter? I would love to follow you!
Hi! Yes, I do! And I’m actually posting stuff on there now, believe it or not… it only took me about a year to get into it haha. I’m @OfficialDSP <3
laurrreenn asked: Don't let the haters get to you love. Your blog is perfect.
Aw, thanks hon <3 Far from perfect, but I appreciate it nonetheless! xx
iamthegirlwonder asked: In regards to your makeup rant (the one with the MAC lipsticks) - You don't even ask us to pay you for your time and wonderful advice like some other beauty gurus do, so you should totally be able to do what you want, how you want, without catching any flak. Seriously, what kind of makeup you buy and wear is your business, regardless of your URL. So, thanks for having such a great blog and boo to the haters!
Thank you thank you thank you for your support! I love blogging but when I sit here and think about how much time I put into it, it starts to feel a bit ridiculous… and that is only intensified whenever people have dumb things to say about what I do! I’m driven by passion and I love helping people out, but dang the negativity gets to me sometimes. So any kind words, like yours, mean more than you could EVER know and are what keeps me here doing what I do. I love every single one of you (well, the nice ones of you at least!) and knowing that you support me and appreciate the effort I put into this website means the world. <3

doyouplaybasketball asked: I love your blog and I love your monthly hits and misses! You're so helpful and I really trust your opinion.
Aw thank you so much! I never really get a lot of feedback from my Hits and Misses, so I’m never sure if people care or not lol… especially considering it takes me a long time to write them! But that really means a lot to me <3 it still blows my mind that peopke actually read my posts!!! Thank you!
bitches-x-brew asked: Hey! I just want to say I really like your blog. I'm from the uk, so some of what you post isn't relevant to me, but I love your answers to asks! They actually answer the persons question, and I love that you put pictures and links. Your blog is great, so thanks for having such an awesome blog :)
Aw, thank you so much! I wish I knew more about the UK makeup scene, but it’s really nice to know that I’ve interested you anyway! It always blows my mind that people so far away from me can connect with me through this site haha… the magic of the internet. Thank you, and I hope to continue to peak your interest! <3
galaxymustaches asked: Idk if you like being compared to ppl. But you sort of look like Katy Perry. But prettier.
Oh my goodness haha, I wish! I do have big eyes and big knockers like her but otherwise, not really haha. But since Katy Perry is Derrick’s ultimate fantasy, I’ll go with it haha ;)
