Lipglossiping guest blogs for Simple!

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 3 - 2010

Last month, Simple asked me if I fancied penning October’s guest blog for them and I jumped at the chance to feature on the site of a brand that to all intents and purposes, I grew up with!

They were curious about what life was like for a beauty blogger who doesn’t really have enough hours in the day to get away with such frivolity and I was more than happy to tell them.  After all, once I start… you’ll struggle to shut me up!

I recently sat on their judging panel to help decide who would become their new online brand ambassador, or “Simple Star” as she will be known.  It was both incredibly interesting and a real privilege to watch the impact that social media is having on a big beauty brand first hand.

I’ll be doing a little write up of the day shortly (I’m waiting on photos), but until then… you can read my guest blog by clicking here.
