New Chapter, Page 1


The blog is back!
Life has been really busy as I wrapped up my final days at WSIL...
So it made sense now to get back to my blogging and keep you posted on what's new! In case you're wondering what happened, I've stepped away from anchoring the news so I can focus on all things Beauty Broadcast (current things like videos, as well as new projects) full time! I couldn't be more excited. I did a video all about it explaining my decision and what it'll mean for my life moving forward... and I am truly overwhelmed by the support I've received. I am still replying to tweets of congratulations from early last week! All the love makes this whole transition even more exciting and fun. So thank you SO much for supporting me!


As for today, it's not really a typical day around here! Number one, I got to sleep in, which was pretty awesome. I'd like to warn you now about upcoming tweets and Facebook statuses that may seem kind of lame, but given my years of morning show life, it's pretty exciting to me! Expect to see things like... "Watching prime time TV without the DVR! Wow!!" or "Slept in til 5 a.m.! Awesome!" or "eating my meals at a normal time, woop woop!" As I told MsGoldGirl today on Twitter, it's the little things!

(I did her wedding makeup!)

Number two, I have a couple of great friends (and former News 3 co-workers) staying with me for a few days! Katie & Ryan Kruger are a WSIL love story, and now live in Florida. They were back in the area for a wedding so I'm thrilled to have them stay here for a bit! This means a little break in the Beauty Broadcast action for me as I host them, but I'll be back in BB mode come Wednesday! 

Anyway, just wanted to drop in and say hello! From my kitchen bar, in my comfy pants, making cinnamon rolls. Have a great day everyone! :D

Emily

  6. Congratulations Emily on your new chapter! I loved the "Slept till 5am". I go to work around 4:30 in the morning,I am a child nutrition manager for a local school, so I know the joys of sleeping in some and being on a "normal" schedule. Looking forward to seeing all the wonderful things you will be doing with Beauty Broadcast.

  8. Oh wow I have not had the chance to catch up on all the videos on youtube yet. So I must have missed this. I am very excited for you and cannot wait to see more of you and beauty broadcast. I really do appreciate you and you are truly one of my fav out there. You always reply to me on twitter which I appreciate a lot, I know people who have wayyyy lesser (not naming anyone here) viewers and subbies that just snub their ''fans'' which people tend to forget they made you and got you to where you are. I appreciate every viewer/subbie I got because it truly means a lot to me. I hope you are having a wonderful time with your friends.

  21. Congrats and good luck on your new normal life. I know how you feel. I work at a news station as well. Getting up at those ungodly hours is not fun. I enjoy reading your blogs. Enjoy your new ventures. talithastake.blogspot.com

  22. Emily, I feel your heartbreak. Yet as a Beauty Broadcast fanatic, I feel so happy seeing your face in my subscription box, and no matter what the title is, your voice makes my day. So on the other hand, I am actually happy that there will be more videos than there already are from you.

    I pray that you will stay true to who you are now, and not lose the identity of Beauty Broadcast amidst all your upcoming collaboration. If the you now disappears, I wouldn't know where to find someone else who is as drugstore, and pocket friendly, and truly concerned about us, as you are.

    May God bless you in your future endeavours. You're my sunshine.

  24. Sometimes a person has to move on and do something different. It may be hard or scary in the beginning but in the end if it makes you happy and fullfilled... it was worth it. I know what I'm talking about.

  26. I'm so happy you've been given the opportunity for a "normal" schedule! Hehe. I think you are one of few beauty gurus who truly deserve such a chance. You're very informative and a delight to watch!

    Can't wait to see what you have in store for us viewers/readers!

  50. Wow just wow. So excited for you. I can tell this decision was difficult for you but seeing you choose something that makes you happy and allows you to spend more time with your husband and be CREATIVE really is inspiring. I've been a loyal subscriber for years now and am one of the many cheering you on. Selfishly of course I'm excited to be seeing much more of you now that you have more time to dedicate to beauty broadcast. This is your time to shine! You clearly are a woman who works hard and deserves nothing but the best. (this is why those "haters" hate haha)
    enjoy all the little things now, especially live primetime tv. we will be happy to read all about them, that's why we're your fan's. We <3 you!

  54. That's really great news! So happy for you...I've been watching you for just maybe a year and I've really enjoyed your reviews on everything. I go to your youtube whenever I'm at Walmart or CVS or any stores I'm also looking to see what you have said to make up my mind. I also just ordered my first Mally Cosmetics stuff because of you! I wish you lots of success!
