The more that you READ, the more things you will KNOW. The more that you LEARN, the more places you will GO. – Dr. Seuss
Well, HELLO there! I am so happy you stumbled across our blog (Everything & Nothin’). I am Elisabeth…AKA the writer behind all the posts you will read and (fingers crossed) learn from. I am a freelance makeup artist who enjoys (NO…Is OBSESSED WITH) any beauty related. I also have a HUGE (and I totally mean HUGE) addiction to subscription boxes. When I am not rummaging through my makeup, you can find me relaxing with my family or reading a book. through I hope you learn, grow with us, and enjoy the ride. We will have many laughs, inspiring ideas, reviews, adventures, love, and well a little bit of everything.
Behind the scenes is my AMAZING boyfriend, Vivek (however he goes by Joseph). I seriously couldn’t do this blog without him. The amazing design was not mine (and I totally can’t take credit for it). He works many hours designing and adding all the fun touches to the blog. O yeah! And he deals with my never ending blog to-do list. He seriously deserves an award!
Some Fun Facts About Us:
- Elisabeth loves creepy, crawling things (spiders, snakes, etc)…Joseph totally isn’t a fan!
- Elisabeth has a Pre-Medical Degree (wanted to be a dermatologist until my love for beauty and blogger took over)….Joseph has a Masters in Computer Science (AKA one of the many reasons I am SO lucky to have him)
- We met online over 2 years ago and have been together ever since (long distance and online relationships really can work)
- Elisabeth collects tea infusers and of course, MAKEUP
- Joseph’s hobby is learning and collecting anything technology related (seriously, he has a problem)
- We both are HUGE football fans…Joseph: Atlanta Falcons & THE OHIO STATE (totally made him choose this college team)…Elisabeth: Pittsburg Steelers & THE OHIO STATE
- Elisabeth loves to bake and eat sweets (AKA my body shows it)
- Joseph is originally from India (Hyderabad)
Now that you have read a little about us, I hope you learn, grow with us, and enjoy the ride. We will have many laughs, inspiring ideas, reviews, adventures, and well a little bit of everything.
A Little About The Blog…
I love to try new things and express things in new ways. I thought what better way to do that then start a blog. I wrestled with many ideas for a blog. Should I start a blog about my weight-loss journey (HINT: Chubby Girls Get Skinny)? Should I start a blog about my addiction to subscription boxes? Should I start a blog about my love of makeup/beauty? As you can see, many blog ideas were flowing. As I was driving with my mother, I was discussing my blogs ideas and she was the inspiration for this blog. She came up with the title, “A little bit of everything…a whole lot of nothin’.” I then discussed the idea with my computer savvy boyfriend and he ran with it. Therefore, Everything & Nothin’ was born. This blog is about…a little bit of everything. All my blog ideas are being combined into one.
A Little About The Categories…
Categories keep the blog organized and allow for easy finding. The Categories tab can be found at the top of the blog. Here you can find exactly what subject you are looking for/are interested in.
The Subscription Box category contains all subscription box information. Here you will find pictures and my reviews on all the subscription services I am subscribed to. There is also a sub-tab on spoilers for upcoming boxes.
The Beauty category is where all the makeup and beauty posts that I create will be posted. This may include makeup tutorials and product reviews. My makeup of the week series is located here. I will also discuss products I love and things of that nature. There are many fun sub-tabs under this section to check out.
The Lifestyle category is where I get personal. I will also give advice to other beauty bloggers here! You can even follow my weight loss journey. I am going to lose 80 lbs and I hope you will join me in achieving my lifestyle change. You never know what you might find under this category. Variety is the spice of life…right?
Freebies and Deals
The Freebies and Deals tab is exactly that, FREE STUFF! You will definitely want to check that tab out! I update it very frequently. There are also awesome deals here!

A Little About Working With Me…
I am a PR friendly blogger and I also love to work with other bloggers. If you are wanting to work with me, see my options below!
Are You A Company Looking To Work With Me On Promoting Your Product/Service?
I love to receive products/services to review. However, I will only write my honest opinions! If I don’t like a product/service, I will let the company know before posting it. I won’t post that I love a product just because a company sent it to me FREE. I wouldn’t want another blogger to lie to me so why would I lie to my readers. I hope you will understand that. With that being said, I really love reviewing and discovering new beauty products and subscription boxes. I am always looking for the next big thing! If you think you have discovered it, let’s work together to let the WORLD know about it.
