Hey there!

It’s Erin here and this is my first ever post on the Candy blog as the Fashion and Beauty Assistant for www.candymag.com. I couldn’t have been more thrilled to get the job and just after 3 weeks of working here,

I can honestly say that I’ve fallen in love  <3

See the thing is, I grew up with Candy as my favorite magazine (still is of course!) and it was always a goal of mine to one day work here and it’s pretty amazing that I was able to fulfill my dream! Plus, I’ve always loved writing and I absolutely love fashion and beauty so how can it not be the perfect fit?

In the past weeks I’ve not only had the chance to write stories you girls are hopefully loving but I’ve also had my fair share of excitement. Here’s a few photos to show you guys what I’ve been up to…

Photoshoot for a beauty editorial
Attended my 1st beauty shoot for an upcoming issue
1st Candy TV shoot
My 1st Candy TV how-to shoot
Opening of F21 at MOA
Attended my 1st event under Candymag.com. Forever21 Mall of Asia Launch

And of course, writing about everything and anything fashion and beauty!

Not only is my job pretty darn cool but I work with really talented, smart and funny people. I definitely have to thank my lucky starts for everything working out and to think I got it all for my 1st ever job!

Since I’m the newbie around here, I thought I should share a little about myself so you guys can get to know the voice behind the fashion and beauty stories. Here’s a few of my favorite things  :thumbsup:

I love fries
I love to eat…especially fries!
...and spicy tuna sushi!
…and spicy tuna sushi!
I love to travel…especially to different beaches!
nike shoes
I enjoy working out. Especially the amazing endorphins I get from it!
Books, movies, tv series and music…just a few of the things I need in life!
And of course, I love to shop ;)

Hope you guys got to know me a bit better but mostly, I look forward to getting to know more of you guys so don’t hesitate to comment here or on my articles. It warms my heart to get responses from all you!

Anyways, I think I’ve been blabbing away for way too long. ‘Till next time!
