Because I’m Happy!


Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do

I was definitely singing this song all day long! Today Allure Magazine announced their 10 finalists in the Allure Beauty Blogger Awards and holy crap, one of them is me! Meeeeee! I can’t express to you how good it feels. It validates the many, many coffee-fuled nights I stayed up late working on posts or figuring out things in WordPress, the time I spent working in retail at Sephora, learning everything I could but sacrificing my nights, weekends and holidays to do so. It validates the research, the experimenting and the drawers of products!

When I caught the tail end of the contest last year, cheering on Cara Brook from Maskcara, I started an Evernote Blog Goals list. I put at the top of the list “Enter the Allure Beauty Blogger Contest. And make it.” I can’t believe I can cross that one off!
I am so tremendously honored you guys. If I could mail little hugs to you all, I would!

Myself and 9 other talented, beautiful bloggers will participate in 5 weekly challenges which you can view and vote on beginning Monday, April 14th! We will be judged by the editors at Allure, celebrity guest judges, and YOU! Each week, there are some crazy good prizes for voting. I really want one of you to win one!

I could never thank you enough for sticking with me. It’s going to be an amazing month and I can’t wait to share the experience with you all! xoxo

    Congrats!!! I am very happy for you!! I have only started following your blog not too long ago due to a coworker telling me about your blog. (she personally knows you) You deserve this and this just inspires me to do the best I can do on my blog so I can too one day get this off my list.
