i don't like you, kayleen.

i'm sure many of you have read the ny times article (published on 01/31/08) about beauty blogging by kayleen schaefer. as you have probably guessed most beauty bloggers, particularly the beauty bloggers who participated in that article are not pleased with how ms. schaefer represents us.

while her article calls for more transparency amongst beauty bloggers in regards to receiving "swag", she herself is a beauty editor at a magazine, where swag and ad sales makes the rules about which products can be featured.

do i get free products? absolutely. do i accept lavish gifts from publicists? only in my really good dreams. instead i sacrifice 20+ hours a week, in addition to having a full-time job, to blog as a hobby.

as my girl liane described it, "kayleen schaefer's acid laced piece was nothing short of bait and switch kamikazee journalism."

i think that is all i can handle saying about this for right now. thank you for all your support, beauties.
