10 years of BeautyJudy – and a giveaway!

Disclaimer: Prize provided by Zoya; see bottom

Do you remember what it was like to turn 10? To go from single digit birthdays to two?! Didn’t that feel like an accomplishment? I thought I was so grown, being 10, compared with just nine.

Well, for me, celebrating the 10th bloggiversary of BeautyJudy feels like a milestone, and I’m very excited to share that with you!

A decade commitment to blogging makes me reflective, especially because there have been many times when I’ve considered throwing in the towel and moving on.

The last year was challenging year for me as a content producer, with SO much change my family went through.

To those of you who have checked in, continued to follow and engage with me, I want to say a big THANK YOU!

Before she turned 9-years-old, BeautyJudy got an updated look, logo and focus. As my life has evolved over the last 10 years, this blog needed to as well.

But then I had Josie in March, and suddenly my blogging goals became a lower priority. As the cliché goes, life happens.

Last year was probably one of the – if not THE – biggest years of change I’ve ever experienced. Growing our family, taking a new job and moving for it – 1,000 miles away. I have grown and continue to grow in ways I didn’t even expect.

I recently shared four intentions I have for 2019 – but I didn’t share them all. One of my others is to create more time for blogging. So sometimes, while I eat my lunch at my desk, I tap out some words. At home on the weekends, when the husband and kids nap, I prep a post. I try wearing a polish a day until I’ve swatched everything, or I swatch after the kids go to bed. The result has been the ability to come back and produce content on my routine, three-times-a-week schedule once again.

So for me, the fact that I am still here, and talking with you, makes me happy. And makes 10 feel even that much more special, because I made it.

I’m not going to make editorial calendar promises, but I hope you’ve been enjoying some of the more creative features I’ve shared, like my makeup usage study, corporate glitter looks. I want to do more content like this.

Anyway. Here’s the good stuff. The giveaway!

Zoya not only agreed to help us celebrate by giving away two sets of their Spring collection, Innocence, but also two 8 oz. pumpers of Remove+, my Holy Grail, ride-or-die nail polish remover! My only regret is that I wasn’t feeling well enough over the weekend to swatch these beauties so you could see what they look like on the nail. Then the other night,  I dropped Birch in my kitchen and she shattered against the tiles on the floor. I ordered a new one, so I’ll post my review of the collection hopefully next week, when I can share all of the beauties!

Anyway, this giveaway is open to U.S. and Canadian followers only, and will ship directly from Zoya to the winners.
