My name is Angelica. I started my love affair with makeup back in 2009 during my senior year in college. I stumbled upon youtube when I wanted to learn how to use my straightening iron to create curls and the rest is history.

As soon as I hit search, I was engrossed into the world of how to's, makeup tutorials and hauls.  I remember watching makeup tutorials from ItsJudytime, Fafinnettex3 and Michelle Phan in my little apartment and thinking to myself that I can do this too! As a fresh out of college graduate I started a blog and a channel called "beauty on a penny" since I was broke and could only afford drugstore and "cheap" makeup products. Sadly, I was unable to keep up with the channel after I started my full time job and my video quality was terrible since I had no money to invest in a good camera and lighting.

Fast forward to 2012, I finally decided to create content again and started a new channel called About something pretty. This blog, my instagram and my youtube channel is about my love story with all things beauty. As I've gotten older, I have picked up a few hobbies I love and I want to include content regarding those as well.

In 2018 I hope to share more reviews and tutorials with all of you as well as share some reviews about books since I've been quite a reader this past few years. If I'm not playing with makeup, my nose is literally stuck in a book.
