Happy 3rd Birthday IMBB :)

by Rati on November 18, 2012 · 91 comments

Oh God! I totally forgot, it’s IMBB’s 3rd Birthday today. Neha wished me yesterday, I told her it’s on 19th. Mr Husband had the 19th date in mind , I have no clue how. And Jomol is travelling. I thought I’d check my first post and it’s today. Oh god!! I am so embarrassed  :P

Anyway, I would have totally been cursing myself if I had not checked it today.

It’s been 3 years now and all of us have come suchhhh a long way. Thanking, cursing, welcoming and having fun with a ton of beauty brands. Yesterday while getting ready I was thinking that it takes me atleast half an hour to select my clothes before I am completley happy with my outfit. It starts with a pair or jeans or a dress , then the top selection takes another 5 minutes, then outerwear, shoes, accessories etc…it goes on.  But when it comes to makeup, I know it like the back of my hand. I know my colors, textures, the kind of look I want for that particular day. I was thinking, I may looove fashion but I will always be a makeup blogger at heart. Reviewing , testing and experimenting products has become my second nature. And I guess it is true for all the contributors here as well. Did I tell you we are about to reach 4 lakh comments? Yeah! we like to talk. :P It has been such a fine journey. Together we have crossed so many milestones and well! so many more to come. So a big Happy Birthday to IMBB. I am super duper happy and glad to have each one of you as part of IMBB. I hope we continue this journey together for many many more years to come. :))

Happy birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow!! 3 yrs! *touchwood* imbb makes life better..its th simplest part of my life..even on th most hectic of days i do end up readin somethin on here..thanku for makun us all a part of this..so generous of u to include odrs into somethin so special for u! Love u! Th way i think about makeup n skin care n fashion has been revolutionised by every member here..thanku for makin every day life so glam! N for me too, makeup is the biggest passion..its what comes so naturally..if not for makeup, skincare wudnt b a concern..n the confidence of makeup trickled onto fashion..the interest in fashion made me health conscious n desirous of a toned body..bein in a community of positive, encouragin beautiful women makes me more positive n caring towards them..its been such an all round personality developer! Rati, u’ve touched our lives n most importantly our hearts . Again, thanku! :*

Congrats Gang…. This is a very addictive blog. For fashion lovers and for makeup addicts most of the things said here might be just repetitions but for the first timers and for those who dont hve much access to info on these things this is actually a blessing. I jst had a lipstick and a moisturizer with me. Now i have a truck load of skin care and makeup stuff and tons of compliments all thanks to you. What makes you stand out is.. even the silliest of the silliest question is not overlooked.. u guys make it a point to get it answered. Well done. Rati, you are an inspiration to many .. some look in for ideas for makeup, skincare and i also feel competitor blog looks for ideas frm yours…

Congrats Rati…. Its a strange coincidence.. I started following IMBB exactly a year ago.. ie on the 17th Nov Actually… so Ur 3rd anniversary is my First…. LOL… BUT on a serious note: I totally love IMBB… there are sooo many things I learnt the past year.. I am very grateful to IMBB for this :)

In fact during Diwali Bash @ work this year.. I got the “Kithab” of being a Fasionista @ work.. ie it was a competition and I won it. AT that moment, I really knew that the title belongs to u guys .. cz its ur tips and tricks that made me one :) :)

SO KUDOS to IMBB… Keep ROCKING!!!! LOVE U GUYzzzzzzzzz

Oh my goodness! Time really does fly! I just ook away from IMBB for a moment and BAM! we’ve reached yet another milestone! I congratulate everyone who has helped this lovely little community reach such glorious heights!~ :D
I’m super happy to see how IMBB has flourished, engulfing many morepeople in it’s loving warmth. I’m grateful for all of your hard work, which has brought my little safe-haven such joy! :)) Ah~ So much has happened in my absence…So many new faces, so many lovely additions to this family~~ Oooh! I just can’t wait to get back to being an active member here. IMBB has helped me in more ways than one, as is with almost everyone else here. I thank everyone here, for I feel comfortable in my own skin(a rare occurence really) when I am amongst you.
I hope we continue to have fn together for years to come!~ Let’s keep doing what we do best: Being IMBBans :D
