So, you are new to WordPress. You just came across this blog and thought, hey, a beauty blog!
This is not your average beauty blog though. We broke the stereotype, sorry to break your little heart (s).
Here at P&P, we do something a little bit weird. We mix real life and beauty, and keep it real. No bragging, no fake hauls, no plagerism, all our own. Cross our heart, hope to die.
We have a good mix of everything. Videos if you are more visual. Written blogposts it you like to read. You will see things written about beauty, fashion, music, life, rants.
The pages, let’s explain those:
The ones with a heart and About Me pages. Read those to know more about us.
Haute and Out is an In and Out page, showing you what we think is fashionable, and what we think is not. This page is all opinion. Don’t be offended.
Wanted is the monthly wishlist page, what we want! Kind of self explanatory
The Key. This is the trickier page. Here is exclusive things, like photos, what we are truly thinking; like a diary. Kind of a gossip-y part of the blog. However, it’s locked. You have to find the key, a clue in every post. Be a detective, read our posts, ask questions, email us, and when we think you are worthy, you will know.
I hope you enjoy your stay here at P&P, and soak up all the joy. But first, you must go back in time with us a little.
AsianSoulSisters is born. Juju’s first time on WordPress, and Evon’s first RL blog. Together, Juju and Evon write in harmony, a mix of beauty posts from Ju and RL posts from Evon. When school starts, a few weeks in, the blog loses viewers and commenters, and the blog close down.
Juju starts FreshFabulous, a blog dedicated to beauty and nothing more. AsianSoulSisters was still running at the time, and became a sole-RL blog for both Evon and Juju. FreshFabulous is something new for Juju, still getting used to the community after immersing herself headfirst during the summer. The blog, however, is waning and Juju wants a fresh start.
October 8, 2011:
Prettied and Polished is created. The blog is a success. Juju gains views, followers, and a lovely place to show her love of beauty and be a part of the lovely WP community of people.
October 10, 2011:
Juju discovers something extraordinary; plagiarism, something rarely seen on WP. She tells Evon, not knowing what to do, and reports it. Suddenly, she becomes a part of some WP drama.
November 6, 2011:
Juju invites Evon and Janine into the blog. Blogging without her bestest friends was lonely, so she had to invite these to lovely chicas. Evon, her friend from youtube, who, over the past year, had become her good friend that she could confide in during her darkest hours. And Janine, her best friend since elementary school. Janine and her had their rough patches, but overcame them and now share a love of beauty and fashion that they want to share with WordPress. The Three Musketeers of Beauty are born.
November 9, 2011:
Juju post “The Three Musketeers! Kinda…ish…sorta” which now has 45 comments and 177 views, the most views and comments a post has gotten in P&P history.

Evon is taken off the blog. Tension is stirred, but P&P still lives on.
