As you may have read in a little paper called the New York Post, I've been outed: my name is Nadine Haobsh, and I was a beauty editor for one of the most popular magazines in the country. I say "was" because there is a predictable end to this story: I came clean to my bosses about my blog—which very, very unfortunately coincided with a job offer from another top magazine—and gave my two weeks notice, which was declined. As luck would have it, once the Post story broke, my new magazine decided to rescind the offer. And that's the end of that chapter.
It's been a tough couple of days, mostly because I let down a lot of people who I care about and respect. To all you would-be bloggers out there: even if you truly are "just being funny" or "don't really mean it", think before you write. And definitely don't write about your industry: things will absolutely be taken out of context or interpreted incorrectly, and that's just not fun for anybody.
What's next for me? I have some exciting projects on the horizon, and am looking forward to figuring out what's best for me and what the future holds. Because I've been inundated with requests to renew the site—you love your Jolie, you really love her!—I've uploaded some of the beauty posts I was able to find on the internet. I'm sure there are more out there, but I'm looking forward right now, not back.
More to come soon—stay beautiful!
