I'm a FINALIST in Allure's Beauty Blogger of the Year Awards!!!! Ahhhhh

Wednesday, April 10, 2013


I've waited a ONE YEAR to make this announcement, and the day has finally arrived!  Last year, two months into starting FMM, Allure selected me as an alternate in their Blogger of the Year Awards contest!  At the time, i was thrilled to have been recognized by my beauty bible knowing my blog was so young!  I knew that with a little bit more time to build upon my blogging ventures, perhaps I'd make into the actual contest a year later!  So, when Allure began accepting applications this year, i sharpened my eye liners, brushed up on my video editing skills (which you'll get to see when the challenges go live) and went to work!  I submitted my best work and waited anxiously for that phone call that may or may not happen!  Well, it did!  At that very moment, i felt as if all of my blogging dreams were finally coming to fruition!  I was no longer an alternate... i was a FINALIST baby!  This year, Allure selected only 10 finalists to compete in the BBA.  Also, aside from the smaller number of competitors, Allure has changed things up a bit from last year's competition!  I won't go into too many details so not to spoil any fun surprises but stay tuned!  Starting today, you can view my (as well as the other contestants) introduction videos and bios here!  On Monday, April 15th, the contest officially goes live and you will be able to see our first challenge posts complete with fun videos!  I hope all my wonderful readers come back and support me on this most wonderful journey ahead!  I'm so excited for this beauty throw down!  May the man with the best lipstick... WIN!
