Allure's Beauty Blogger of the Year Awards 2013 - Challenge 1 and 2 Recap

Saturday, April 27, 2013

The past two weeks have seriously been a whirlwind!  Actually, i take that back... the past couple of months have been overwhelmingly exciting and nerve wrecking at the same time!  From the moment i received the news from Allure to completing all the challenges.  As a busy full time working mommy, it was a tad challenging finding the time to complete all the challenges at hand in a short amount of time, but with a wonderful support system... my parents, sister and husband, i did it!  I put my heart and soul into every single challenge.  Regardless of the outcome, i need to remind myself everyday how grateful i am for this wonderful opportunity and for making it this far!  I'm surrounded by a very talented group of ladies and I'm excited to see what the weeks ahead bring.  As week two comes to a closing, i wanted to take the time to say a simple heart felt thank you to all of you who've taken the time to vote for me.  I've received so much love thus far and my heart is very full.  My greatest hope is to make it to week 5 so that you get to see all of my challenges and all of the love that i put into them.  I honestly think the three challenges ahead were some of my best work.  I'll admit, my spirits were very down last Monday when i saw my ranking, but again, after a few hours of reflection, i can only say... I'm grateful.  Whatever happens Monday at 9am.... happens.  It's out of my hands now... i did my best!  So with that being said, here is a little recap of the past couple of weeks!  Enjoy!




Here's the video i put together for this challenge.  Regardless of my ranking, i am SO PROUD and LOVE this video!  





Here's hoping for three more weeks of fun challenges ahead!!!!  FINGERS CROSSED!

  7. It is firm to agree with this list when you know that in the rear the screen the airlines in point of fact buy these awards for themselves. Awards
