This Giveaway is now CLOSED~Congratulations to the winner Tiffany!

Welcome to Romy Raves, I am thrilled that you stopped by because today is a very special day, it’s my SITS day and I have been waiting for this day to come for a long time, Woot Woot! What is SITS you ask? SITS stands for The Secret to Success is Support and SITS is an amazing community of bloggers who support each other by diligently leaving comments on each others blogs (and this is a great way to build traffic and increase SEO). And today, I am the featured blogger over at SITS and everyone who visits that site today will see me highlighted and be encouraged to come over to check out my blog and leave a comment, pretty cool right? It’s a fabulous, fun and supportive community and a great way to help grow your blog audience.

So now that you are here, I’d love to tell you a little more about me and why I am so fabulous! First, I wanted to share a recent picture I had taken (probably one of the best pictures I have ever taken in my life thanks to JennKL) so you that you can get to know me better

My name is Romy Schorr and I am a Lifestyle and Beauty Blogger and a passionate beauty junkie. I have been obsessed with all things beauty ever since I was a little girl (I am now 43 BTW-beauty obsession has its privileges :-)). I was that little girl who went to the perfume and cosmetic counters in the department stores and got tremendous joy from collecting product samples, sharing them with my friends and using them to make me feel pretty and special. This passion evolved into being the go-to-girl for all my friends for recs on what beauty products to use, where the best facial in town was or my thoughts about the best new foodie place. Sharing resources and insider tips and tricks gives me tremendous pleasure-I LOVE every minute of it! My lifelong passion has always been to share useful information with people that can impact their life in a positive way and this organic passion has led me to Romy Raves.

On my blog, I offer in-depth thoughtful coverage of the latest and greatest beauty products, beauty trends, lifestyle events, fashion and accessories, travel, food and wine, giveaways and occasionally I will write a meaningful psychological post just to show that I have substance. My blog has also lead me to amazing opportunities like being a Real Beauty Brand Ambassador for Therapon Skin Health (and hosting super cool insider parties like THIS) as well as a recently being chosen as Brand Ambassador for Aveeno Products and getting to attend the Independent Spirit Awards this past weekend and getting up close and personal with celebs! 

I also have a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology (I was a sex therapist earlier in my career) and own a full service qualitative marketing research firm called Schorr Creative Solutions, Inc. where I conduct focus groups for a wide variety of clients. I have been a professional moderator for well over ten years and have conducted hundreds of focus groups on topics like television shows, beauty, consumer products, technology, toys, food and beverages. I love asking probing questions and exploring how people feel about things, it’s a super fun job and I get to meet all sorts of interesting people all over the country.

And most importantly of all, I have an amazing and beautiful family! I have fabulous and sexy hubby and a vivacious and passionate 7 year old son, here’s a recent pic of the the fam (also by JennKL)

So as you can you can see, I am a passionate and busy woman with a lot to share! I am so glad that you stopped by today and I hope that now you will think of me as your new go-to girl for all things lifestyle and beauty and subscribe to my blog!

  1. My all time favorite beauty product is Benefit’s Porefessional because I have horrible pores. I used to get compliments on my skin, but as I got older my pores got larger and my skin became more uneven. Now, with Porefessional, it looks great again! I would love to win because I’m doing everything I can to restore and take better care of my skin.

  20. Happy SITS day! I think I need one of those wellness drinks you’re talking about in your post below!!!

  21. Congratulations on your SITS day! I’ve really enjoyed catching up on your blog. I’m a make-up addict! Its always been something I loved, but with my depression something I’ve really let go of. But your blog motivates me to pick it up again so thank you!

  23. happy SITS spotlight day! You are beautiful and you have some handsome men in your life! good to meet you!

  24. I can’t stop looking at your blog. So glad you were the featured blogger on SITS today, or i would have never known about you.
    My Clarisonic is my all time favorite product lately. My skin looks and feels smooth and fantastic.

  25. i don’t have a beauty blogger in my arsenal of fav blogs so excited to add you to my reader. congrats on your sits day 🙂

  26. You have a beautiful family! I just might have to give lash extensions a try. Believe it or not, at 41 years of age I just tried false eyelashes for the very first time!

  27. Congrats on your SITS Day! You have a lovely blog … fun stuff! =)

  28. Happy SITS day! I’ve never tried the lashes extension trick before but you’ve made me think maybe I should. They look great!

  29. Yay, Happy SITS day. Hope that you have a good one 🙂

  30. Hi…I am new to SITS and stopping by to visit! I am off to look over the rest of your site. Have a great day!

  31. Oh & one of my fav beauty products is Clinique Self Tanner-it’s a must have for me in the summer!

  32. Happy SITS day! And I love your eyelash extensions, even though I don’t think I could pull them off. I tend to be a wash and moisturize-only kind of gal.

  33. Looks like a fun blog here! Happy SITS day to you!

    Can’t enter the giveaway ’cause I live in Italy, too bad.

  34. looking so forward to combing thru your blog today, could use some tips that will help me feel a little perked up! been hit with some unexpected news… it’s easy to get mixed emotions of feeling simultaneously excited and stifingly overwhelmed – sometimes the how’s and when’s and why’s get can so loud that i just have to take a few minutes to let the soul breathe, stare up at the perfect sky, & let it all go – brace the unknown – trust the “winding” will work itself out along the way – and it always does….

  35. Happy SITS day! I will come back and enter the giveaway later…I’m late for work! But I’ve been enjoying looking through your blog.

  36. Congrats on your SITS day. You have a very cool blog. 😀

    I haven’t worn makeup in years. The expense of starting over with quality products has kept me from starting up again. It’s on my “some day” list.

  37. Happy SITS day!

    You are gorgeous, by the way! 🙂

    My favorite beauty product… hmm… toughy! Probably my chapstick. I mean, I love lots of products, but that is one I wear all day, every day without fail. 🙂

  38. Congrats on your SITS day! It is so fun to mess around with hair and makeup. I look forward to visiting often.

  39. Congrats on your SITS day! I love how your social buttons look like makeup! That’s cute. 🙂

  40. Happy happy SITS day and may you capture many new followers. My fave beauty product is knowledge! To know what really, truly works and what is a huge waste of money. I use the Cosmetics Cop for that info. Then again, I love Elizabet Arden’s Extreme Conditioning Cream (for my very dry skin).

  41. Happy SITS day! Looking forward to reading more of your beauty tips!

  42. Happy SITS day Romy! I’ve been following you since we met at BlogHer through Sugar and Deb (San Diego Momma). You always have such a great beauty tips and I love the peacock feather in your hair in the photo. I won’t lie…I love Le Mer 🙂

  43. Have fun today!! You are beautiful, btw. You look amazing for 43-WOW!:)

    I need to subscribe to your blog…I love makeup and looking nice but I could use a few pointers, too-LOL:)


  44. Happy SITS day! Love your site – your subscription icons are so cute!

  45. Happy SITS day! Those are some fabulous eyelash extensions. You look great and your blog is beautiful. Enjoy your day in the spotlight.

  46. Well, you are certainly doing something right… you don’t look 43! It must be a lot of fun being able to have such a positive impact on women through your passion.

    Coming over from SITS to check out your blog and to congratulate you. Enjoy your special day.

  47. Happy SITS day! The world needs more fabulous women such as yourself!

    As a new mom I struggle with taking care of myself (in fact, I’m home sick today but before I let myself sit down I folded laundry, finished dishes, and pretty much exhausted myself) so I really appreciate ladies like you who remind me that it’s okay to take some time for ME. Thanks!

  48. Happy SITS day! Your love sure has paid off – you look amazing:)

  49. I’ll be subscribing, not for your fabulous giveaway, but because I’ve been spending less and less time on my appearance over the past couple of years and could use a little nudge. I’ll be turning 46 at the end of the month-it’s not quite as easy as it used to be. Ahhh, I miss the days when I could run out of the house with nothing more on my face than lip gloss and a single coat of mascara!

    Congrats on your SITS day, enjoy.

  50. HAPPY SITS DAY! I really love your blog and you have a beautiful family! I’m always on the lookout for products that make my skin look better, so sounds like this is the place! For myself, I always put sunscreen on my face. I wear it under my makeup. I use Eucerin’s Everyday Protection Face Lotion SPF 33. I’ve had a couple of bouts of skin cancer this past year, so I want to make sure I’m protected.

  51. Happy SITS Day to you!

    I should read your blog for tips. I know very little about makeup and fashion.

  52. Cheers to you on your SITS day!!!

    I was also the little girl who collected samples and requested the free makeovers at the cosmetic counter.

    Being a girl is such fun, isn’t it? How grand to have a space like you’ve got to dish on it all! 🙂


  53. Love the idea behind your blog because we can all use tips on being more beautiful inside and out!! Happy SITS day.

  54. hi, I love the lashes.. and the peacock feather earrings.. I have a pair too… happy sits day.

  55. Great blog! I’m visiting from SITS, but I’m sure I’ll come back! Beauty and brains, you’re kind of the whole package. I don’t know whether I should love you or hate you? 😉

  56. Thank you for having my fashion back. I am too busy most days to look at a fashion magazine.

    Contrats on your SITS Day!

  57. Happy day to you! Glad to have found your blog – I do hair and makeup, so it’s always fun to hear what products other people love.

  58. Wow! First off, Happy SITS day and second, I guess this is the benefit of staying up late! I love beauty products but and too scared to try a new product and not be happy with it after I have paid for it. You look amazing for 43!! I want your secrets! 🙂 I entered your giveaway, you are too kind!
    My favorite beauty product is from the Body Shop, it’s a refining facial mask. I love the deep cleansing it does to my pores and how soft my face feels after wards. I almost feel like a teenager again after using it, even if my kids laugh at my green face while waiting!
