Well Hello Hello Hello! Where do i even begin? I’m sitting here and i’m completely overwhelmed with excitement. I have been wanting to venture into the blogger world for so long and now i have finally gained enough courage to do so.
My name is Yolanda Scharneck, I’m a 29 year old female born and raised in Johannesburg South Africa. I have been a lover of all things makeup, skincare and health for the longest time. My makeup obsession started from a very young age and my mom to this day, still tells stories of how i use to do my makeup and hair from the age of 3 and how everyone had such a great laugh because the application was horrendous.
My health journey started after i had gained so much weight after going on contraceptives that just didn’t agree with my system and this journey hasn’t been easy but I’ve reached certain goals along the way and proud of the lifestyle changes I’ve made to ensure that i become a better version of myself. This journey has proven to be the most challenging and it has its ups and down so i will be sharing my thought and feelings around my exercise routines, eating plans, some recipes etc and hope that you will gain something from this.
I’m in no way a professional when it comes to these topics I’ve mentioned above. I am just a makeup and skincare fanatic and would absolutely love to share my personal thought and views on all things that ladies with similar interest enjoy and can’t live without.
So lets me explain how this idea of starting my blog began. My daily life revolves around reading interesting articles about beauty products, be it from my favorite bloggers, you-tube beauty gurus or just the general consumers view on certain products/brands. I learn something new daily but on some days, especially if i have an opinion on a specific product based on my experience, i feel like expressing myself and i would talk none stop to my fiance (shame, i feel sorry for him, poor guy probably knows so much about makeup already-by default haha!). I had no platform to do this and that’s when I started contemplating starting my own personal blog and my fiance(Jason) is the one who encouraged me to JUST DO IT! Soooo here i am!
My blog is called StunnersSlayUniqueness and i must admit i didn’t know where to start when it came to naming my blog. I sat down for a few days and just had words written down that i felt would best describe me and you would honestly laugh if I have to mention some of the names i came up with.
I have decided to start importing international makeup brands and have created an online store called SlayUniqueness. I felt that i should create a “brand” and link my blog to my online store so that you may get to know a little more about the person who has decided to start this store.
So both my online store and blog feature the words slay and uniqueness. I wanted a name that speaks to my customers/readers. Where it would attract their attention because it would be a name they could relate to.
The best way i would describe the name would be:
- Stunners – all ladies are stunning in their own way. It honestly warms my heart when I see how many ladies with different features, shapes and sizes accept their imperfections and embrace those aspects completely. Its the most attractive quality any lady can ever own.
- Slay – this word right here is just so sassy and chic. I seeee you ladies strutting your stuff when you’re walking with confidence. You slay everything that you are because you know there’s only one You. Slay girl Slay!
- Uniqueness – And finally Uniqueness! I feel this word describes all of us because we’re all original versions of ourselves, unique is so many ways and that is just mind-blowing. Uniqueness is Beautiful, so Own yours!
I hope that all of you will love and gain some insight on things you might find interesting on this new journey of mine. Please feel free to comment and discuss where you feel necessary and I look forward to communicating with all my followers. lol. I honestly can’t contain my excitement.
Please keep your eyes peeled for my next post!!
