my giveaway

I can’t believe that today marks my FIVE-YEAR BLOGGIVERSARY!

It seems like just yesterday, I sat down at the computer with just an idea of giving myself an outlet, a place to point to when a family member or friend asked me for some kind of beauty advice. I never imagined that I would build so many friendships, make so many connections, and learn so much in the last five years.

I never imagined I would cover New York Fashion Week or a number of trade shows, meet Suzi from OPI, or write a regular beauty column in a daily newspaper.

I never imagined I would get better at applying my eye makeup, or grooming my eyebrows.

I never imagined I would meet so many amazing men and women – fellow bloggers, makeup artists, brand reps, celebrities – because of my blog.

I never imagined I would have my eyes opened up to a world of products and experiences I never even knew existed.

I never imagined that running a beauty blog – that creating my brand, really, of “BeautyJudy” – would be one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life.

And thank you, too.

I never expected anyone outside my friends or family would really read or look at my blog. But you do. And you make this an amazing experience. That’s why I wanted to coordinate so many giveaways this week. To celebrate YOU!

I am very humbled that brands helped me provide you with so many amazing things, but I am excited to do my own giveaway, too. Some of the items were samples, yes, but some were purchased by me or are duplicates. Here’s what I’m giving away:

  • Chrome Girl Nail Polish in Pillow Talk
  • Gelish Mini Lamp and Starter Kit
  • Seche Recondition
  • Nail Art Society California Dreaming and I Love Stud kits
  • Jesse’s Girl Liquid Eyeliner

Some of these items I have bought over time and am so excited to share – like the Jersey Girl scrub … well … I’m a Jersey Girl and I think this smells amazing! LEH Soap Company is a local business, and I want to share them with you! I bought this extra one for you when I went shopping in historic Smithville, NJ, with my mom in December!

Anyway. I know a lot of folks who come by and read and don’t make a comment and that’s OK! I do that too with a lot of blogs I read. But today, I’d LOVE to hear from you. even if you just post a simple “hi!”
