Eleni is your own personal Santa. She goes through your profiles before you get your gifts. She will not give an “acne treatment” to a forty year old with dry skin. She matches it up with the 28 year old that is oily (be specific in your profiles ladies!)
She never lets me forget focus. If I wander off in thought she’ll say “Thees ees a beesniz” to bring me back.
If I drink too much wine she insists I sleep over. If I look pale she cooks steak for lunch. If a man is breaking my heart she’s breaking his legs. She gets the stuff done on this site and she gets the stuff done in my life and she’s cooking a gourmet meal all in the while just to show who is in control!
This is me and Eleni and Vivi, Eleni’s 75 year old mother that came to Los Angeles to visit her. Her mother flew all the way from Greece and once in L.A. Cooked the entire time for us and our friends. Eleni is from a long line of givers and does so much for us.
Thank-you Eleni! Thanks for never judging me. Thanks for letting me know when I’ve been an idiot. We know the massive amount of products you mail out and control is huge. Your articles are always amazing and we are so happy you are in our lives! I love you lady and here is to a great year 31!
We need to celebrate the goodness that is Eleni! When Megsmakeup was just starting to have a staff and the funding had not come through Eleni offered to give me any extra cash she had to keep us going. I am thankful to say we made it through but, hello? Who offers that? Eleni offered her savings, she’s not from Greek aristocracy. It was her safety net and she believed in all of us to put it toward this site.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Who is your most trusted friend isn’t it the one that understands and never judges? Eleni is mine!! Wish my lady a Happy Birthday!
