Toot Toot! (that’s my horn right there)

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 22 - 2011

By some twilight zone-esque stroke of good fortune, I’m one of the nominated top 6 beauty blogs in the Handbag.com 2011 Beauty Awards.

The competition is ridiculously tough and once you click through to see it, you’ll be like “sorry Char, her’s is actually better” and I’d probably agree with you but I do have a secret weapon up my sleeve to curry favour.

Having had a look at the awards in closer detail, it appears that if I win, I get to exercise bragging rights and a badge.  However, when you submit a vote for your favourite, you can enter into a draw to win all sorts of wondrous, beauty prizes.  So really… you could say that I’m actually asking you to do this for your own benefit…

…but I won’t, ‘cos otherwise you’d definitely vote for someone else.

 

p.s.  I’m not a video blogger – have I just disqualified myself?

p.p.s.  The beauty blog category is on the first page.  Lazy.

p.p.p.s.  I like things in threes.  Thank you!

    I’ve voted! :)

    Have to say though, the products are really random, but what’s werirdest is that you can vote for Sephora as best online retailer. Last time I checked this was the UK and there’s no Sephora!? *scratches head*

    i wouldn’t worry about the fact it says video bloggers – in the blurbs it doesn’t even mention videos and doesn’t seem to realise that Pixiwoo is 2 people!

    Voted for you and good luck, but I do agree that some of the products nominated seem a bit random. Also 30 categories is a lot! I ended up skipping a lot of them because I hadn’t used any of the products in the category. There seem to be so many beauty awards now, it’s hard to know which are worth focusing on.

    You are hand-on-heart my number 1 daily must-read beauty blog, so you got my vote, although some of the other nominees are awesome too.

    Is Aimee McKenna a YouTuber? Her blog hasn’t been updated since May so I guess the content must be on YT?

  17. Consider my vote for you cast :-) I have to agree the list is a bit random.
