F.A.Q

*I am slowly adding onto this page.  If you have a FAQ question you would like me to add, please email me at dinah@dgsbeauty.com

Who is Dinah?

I am a 27 years old, Filipino born and raised in Hawaii.  I am a Navy wife and a mother to a beautiful little girl and boy.  Along with this blog, I manage a mommy blog (Petite Asian Mom) and co-manage a food & fitness blog (Eat Clean Train Daily) with my sister-in-law (MakeupDiary).  I am also a Contributor for iFabbo (International Organization for Fashion, Beauty & Style Bloggers & Brands).  Furthermore, I just recently became a Beachbody Coach.

How it all began?

I began blogging in March 2011.  I enjoyed blogging but never really thought about blogging for the sole purpose of sharing my love of beauty, fashion and health.  This was actually suggested by my good friends when I would talk to them about makeup (given none of them cared for it) and how I wish I was working because I am a stay-at-home mom.  We all agreed that blogging would be the best option.  Never had I thought my blog would have flourished as much as it has today.

What is your blog about?

Originally I started off mainly focusing on beauty.  However, lately it has evolved and now incorporates fashion and fitness posts.   

What equipment do you use?

For my camera, I use my Canon EOS Rebel T3i and on rare occasions my Canon PowerShot SX500 IS.  The computer that I use to mange my blog is a MacBook Pro 13″.  To make it easier taking pictures of the products, I use a Seamless Tabletop Background.

Do you receive free samples for reviews?

Yes, I do.  Regardless of the samples sent to me for free, I promise to give you my honest opinion on the products.  (See policies.)

How long do you take to review a product?

It really depends on the type of product (skincare, haircare, makeup, etc.) and how busy my personal schedule is. But it will usually take me between 2-4 weeks.  If I take longer, I will email the company to keep them updated on its progress.

Do you accept guest blogger posts?

Yes!  If you also have a beauty, fashion, and/or fitness blog, please send me an email at dinah@dgsbeauty.com.  Keep in mind that your post should be exclusive to D.G.S.Beauty’s Blog and not published anywhere else.  Also, I prefer that the pictures be taken by you.  All you need to do is email me your request and attach the desired post/pictures for approval.

*I DO NOT ACCEPT LINK EXCHANGES THAT ARE HIDDEN AS “GUEST POSTS.”*
