Grab your martini glasses, girls – this is a reason to celebrate! Allure Magazine selected 10 bloggers nationwide in their hunt for the Beauty Blogger of the Year… and I’m included! I am so excited I can hardly type. Visit http://blogger-awards.allure.com/contestant/katie-mcbroom/ to see my profile page!
The winner of the Beauty Blogger Awards (presented by Revlon) gets a ton of killer prizes like a trip to NY Fashion Week, a ticket to Allure’s Best of Beauty party, a feature in Allure’s October issue, and my favorite prize – the opportunity to write for Allure for a year!
To win the grand prize I will be competing alongside other awesome beauty bloggers in a series of challenges over the next five weeks. I will face elimination each week, so I need your votes to keep me in the contest!
Beginning April 15 (this coming Monday) at 9 a.m. you will be able to vote for me every day through May 17th at noon to help me avoid elimination. But wait, there’s more! Every time you vote for me you will be entered to win awesome prizes like a trip for two to Hawaii! Voters can also score fun goodies like Coach makeup bags, Clarisonic Aria skin brushes, and more! Watch my video below for more details.
Honestly, I’m already so honored to have been chosen… but winning the grand prize wouldn’t hurt! There are also prizes for the most “Buzzworthy” – meaning the blogger with the most Twitter and Facebook shares (via the Facebook and Twitter buttons on each weekly challenge). So, if anyone feels compelled to share my challenges via social media, I’m not going to stop you!
Thank you all for reading… and big thanks to Allure and Revlon for having me in this contest! Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go squeal with excitement again.
Remember, voting begins 9 a.m. Monday and I will be posting the links to the first challenge first thing that day (if you haven’t already done so, add me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter where I will be posting them often!). In the meantime, enjoy my celebratory cocktail that I will be consuming later today. The concoction features some of my favorite flavors and is super easy to whip up – just remember the 3 Cs for celebration – Champagne, Chambord, and Citron! Cheers!
