I started my blog almost 3 years ago, I had NO idea what I was doing and I didn’t have a single reader. I had this dream to have a beauty blog, I was ONLY going to blog about makeup and beauty tips…but, after I hit my first major rut and getting overwhelmed with so many new makeup products, I slowly stopped posting. I needed that break to think about where I wanted my blog to go, and after much thought and a light-bulb going off in my head, I realized that I didn’t have to blog just about makeup, I could do whatever I wanted to do!
So I buckled down, set some goals and that day, I decided that 2016 was going to be the year that Beauty With Lily became something more! So here I am today sharing with you what I did to get that motivation to grow my blog!
Lastly, be realistic…the chances of going viral overnight are pretty slim. Besides, I would much rather have 20 loyal and supportive followers, that always read my content and leave genuine comments, than have 2,000 who come every once in awhile and leave a “great post” comment. It will take time, but don’t get discouraged and always keep a positive mindset!

Hi there! I’m Lily, the girl behind Beauty With Lily. I am a real estate agent, nurse, wife, crazy dog mom — to our cute little pup, Charlie — blogger, beauty enthusiast, makeup connoisseur, and your everyday twenty-something southern gal. You'll usually catch me with an iced coffee in tow, an arm full of makeup swatches or behind my computer working (or shopping!) I hope this little space helps you feel beautiful, find your next clothing piece to buy or a place you come to after a long day. I hope you stay awhile. xo - Lily
