Well this is my first ever blog post. I've always been the type of person that kept diaries and journals about everything imaginable. So I think this blog is going to be about random things, beauty reviews, book reviews.
I'm very girly, and I've always been that way. I really enjoy reading about new products and makeup lines, about the newest trends. I don't follow trends to the letter, I do what I like, but put my own stamp on it. That's a really hard thing to do in the world today, to stay true to yourself. But, its possible, if you just have confidence.
Confidence is the biggest thing that I strive to keep and share with other people. You can't always be smiles and rainbows 100% of the time, but you have to keep your chin up as best you can. Confidence is something that is a wonderful gift to share because it exudes to others. I haven't always been confident, its not always going to be easy. But you can't ever let life get you out of the game. Its so easy to have something happen, and let it scare you away from trying. Getting out here and starting a blog is something that I've wanted to do for a really long time, and I'm so glad I decided to start one because you probably ought to know I talk... a lot. So I have a lot to say, and to share my thoughts and opinions with everyone!!!!

Before I finish up, I wanted to explain where the name "Carnival Ride" comes from. I'm a huge country music nerd and I really admire and look up to Carrie Underwood. She has an album, as you probably already know, named Carnival Ride. There's a line in her song Wheel of the World, that goes,

"God put us here, on this carnival ride.
We close our eyes, never knowing where it'll take us next."

That line has always been important to me because life really is like a ride, with ups and downs, curves and twists. But rides are fun, so whats not to love?

Well my lovelies, that's all for today. I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I enjoyed writing it!!!!!
