I think I can count on one hand stuff I have won via contests. I can’t even remember what it was now that I wrack my mind. But I woke up this morning and per usual, the first thing I did was check my email on my smart phone. There was an email that said I won a contest. A very important contest. I thought I was hallucinating, so I went back to sleep.
I woke up an hour later and checked my email again. And there it was — the very same email. I won! I won the Foundation Blog contest with Iman Cosmetics. OMG! I got up and used the bathroom and went back to check the email again. That message was still there. You are a winner…
My blog posting about my ultimate foundation was a winner. That made me a winner. And that is still sinking in. The contest was for Iman Cosmetics launch of her Luxury Radiance Liquid Makeup. Well, what can I say. I love Iman. She in the quintessential beauty and fashion icon.
So I started calling folks. My BFF. My kids. My cousin. I was waking the world up. Then I tweeted it. Then I emailed everyone I know. Then I posted it on Facebook. And then I just sat back and thought about what this means for me.
As much as I love makeup, I love writing even more. I’m 100% enamored with the written word. And to be recognized for something I wrote that was so personal and near and dear to my heart is very, very special. So today I’m not posting any product pitches, any product reviews, any how-to’s, any trends, any silly cosmetic artifice, it’s about my foundation.
Thanks Iman. I’ll see you next week.
