this really made me smile..

Name: Linh Chia
Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
Tidbit: I'll be in Beijing during the Olympics!
How'd you find me? I can't remember exactly. I used to own a livejournal account, but no mores. I believe I found you through other ljs I lurked.

Dear Mila,

I want to take out this time and tell you how incredibly proud I am of you. You don't even know me but I've been a lurker of yours for 5+ years (more so in the past than now, since I'm a junior in college and hardly have much time to lurk anymore). I was there during your earlier posts when you liked to experiment with makeup (you used to obsess over MAC and getting a job with MAC of some kind) and take pretty pictures of yourself and now look at you. You've grown into a beautiful woman, networking in the industry, getting yourself known, a true entrepreneur. You are an amazing inspiration for those who have a passion and would like to capitalize on it. I absolutely love your work (do you even call it work? haha) and I visit occasionally to see what your creative mind is up to, not to mention you are also a trendsetter, and I admit to sometimes visiting to see your latest outfits to figure out recent trends since I'm not much of a fashion mag reader. You are on the road to success, no doubt about it. I'm no psychic, but I can only see a bright future for you. Good luck with everything (even though you don't need it :D) and keep doin' yo thang.

Warmest regards,


Thank you, Linh!
I'm almost done replying to everyone

Glad to see this community is still e-live and well (ha ha)
I hereby claim this year to be the year of the killer midrif. It's really been one of my goals (physically - that and LONG legs, but a girl can only do so much. That's what 5" platforms are for.. heeee-ay!) I wouldn't call it my "New Year's Resolution" just something I thought of after watching Janet's amazing video! *smiles* UGH, honestly, how amazing is she? Anyway, my thing is (what my Momma Dearest always reminds me) "always try to be a better person everyday". I'm not waiting for a whole New Year, I've got the present! WE GOT NOW Kiddies! Hope I'm making sense. I haven't been sleeping well the past few nights because of my annoying and disgusting eczema itching attacks.. so I'm typing this as my eyeballs are burning from dryness but I do mean everything I'm saying with all my heart.

My goal for this year is the same as what I had already set them in September. Finish School. I've been delaying completing my Advanced Makeup Certificate for too long and now I'm proud to say I'm almost complete! It was a hard decision, not because I didn't want to enroll (are you kidding me? I LOVE ALL MY CLASSES!) but once I had committed, I knew I had to say "no" to a lot of things I wanted to say "yes" to. In the end, my decision will benefit me in the long run and opportunities will open up again. Not necessarily the same ones, but perhaps something better. I believe things happen for a reason, and I'm really feeling the effects of having to truly sacrifice right now it makes me borderline depressed. But I'm keeping focused and I'm 110% that it will all pay off in the end! Once I remind myself that, I don't feel so bad anymore. Aside from that, I've also been blessed with some unexpected pleasant surprises that it makes me want to puke (in a good way!).

I can't wait to see what 2009 has in store for me! 
You should feel the same way too! (About yourself, of course!!!)

To US!
