in february, it was back to nyc to cover backstage beauty for mark at the rebecca minkoff show. it was by far my favorite runway show that i’ve seen!
april brought about the amazing news that i had been selected as a finalist in allure’s beauty blogger of the year competition. (i will be forever grateful for your five weeks of internet votes!) i made it all the way to the end, finishing the competition in the top nine which was more than i could have hoped for.
the glossarie turned 3 in may which provided the perfect excuse to celebrate! i can’t believe i never posted a recap on this fabulous party. all you really need to know is that there were cupcakes and beauty booty for all!
in june, the great gals at birchbox invited me to guest blog for them for the second time. i always have so much fun sharing beautiful ideas with them.
july was highlighted by a styling collaboration with baublebar – the perfect excuse to partner up with the amazing kate headley.
in august, i was featured in one of my favorite internet wonderlands, glitter guide. it was a pinch me moment to see my own face staring back at me from my inbox!
i met maggie in september, making her the glossarie’s very first contributor. she has been a joy to work with and judging by your reactions to her posts, she is a more than welcome addition to the blog.
then i capped off the year with a major bang, making my very first live tv appearance on dc’s local cbs affiliate wusa9.
it’s been a very good year and i can’t thank all of you enough for being a part of it! i am looking forward to so much more fun and excitement in 2013 – i wish you beauties the happiest of new years.
