    It was a pleasure to find you in 2014! one of my web-life highlights :)
    Thank you so much for all the wonderful posts and endless insparation, you’re a lovely person and I wish 2015 is going to be even more amazing for you and HelloJaa.com

      Thank you, thank you, thank you! I LOVE YOU! KISS KISS! I am thankful to have found you as well! You are such an uplifting person, full of compliments and encouragement. Thanks so much for all your kind words throughout 2014. Happy New Year and I wish you and GlossBerry blog success in 2015!

    How am I number two?!?! I’m glad to be Sunny’s runner up however.

    I really love your blog, not just for the photos you put so much time into but your balance of looks between bold and wearable is wonderful.

    Even though I’m not Thai, I appreciate that you take the time to do translations and that the American Thai community has a good representative for all things beauty.

    I’m surprised the comments and the view’s don’t correlate!

      Hey Erin! You read it right! You are my second most loyal commenter! Wish we could sit down and have a glass of wine together! ;D Thank so much for noticing the details on my website (bold/wearable looks, photos, and translation). It really does take a lot of time to do one post but thankfully I am always having fun doing it so it never really feels like work. Now if only I could do this full-time! :)

    Clearly your most asked questions prove that you take awesome pictures! Love your blog and I look forward to keeping up with it in 2015! Happy new year!!

    1. says: Jaa

      Hi JK! Thanks so much! ^_^ I suppose I take decent pictures right now but there is still so much room for improvement! I’m still learning every day. :D Happy New Year to you as well! I hope 2015 brings you everything you wish for! :)

    Ehehe, I see I’ve been lurking around here a lot, LOL! Just can’t prise a rogue out of the shadows on a good blog, I guess! <3

    You have such an amazing talent for blogging, Jaa! I hope you find all the happiness and success in it that you desire (the science job too, but makeup and blogging is much more amusing, amirite? *bangs head against thesis*) :-)

    1. says: Jaa

      Aww thanks so much, Syl! That means a lot to me! I hope to continue to be doing both well! I can’t choose one over the other! >.<

  8. Congrats on your excellent 2014, girly! I am kind of thrilled that I made the top 5 commenter list, lol! Your content continues to be top notch, along with your photography skills. However, the most important ingredient in Hello Jaa remains JAA – your amazingly kind and loving personality shines through in all you do, and I’m happy to call you a friend, not just a blogger I read. :D Much love and lots of 555s in 2015! Cheers! <3

    1. says: Jaa

      Aww thanks so much, Kristen! I do feel the same about you! Your kind, fun, and smart personality also shines through in your posts and pictures! They always make me smile! I’m so glad to have met you! I hope to meet you in person some day! :D
