2013 was an insane year – And it’s all thanks to YOU guys! I composed a few of my top blogging moments and I hope you enjoy looking back with me! 🙂 These are in no particular order!
Rita Hazan Next Top Beauty Blogger
I think this was the best blogging moment for me. Being named Next Top Beauty Blogger by celebrity hair stylist Rita Hazan was an amazing feeling. I received an all expense paid trip to NYC for my mom & I during Mother’s Day weekend & we had the time of our lives! We got put up in a swanky hotel, had a fabulous dinner and were treated like royals at the salon – Hair, Mani & Pedi! It was a moment I will never ever forget and I without your support & votes, I never would have been able to go, so THANK YOU!
Another amazing moment was my trip to San Francisco in February! This has nothing to do with blogging milestones, but I did get to hang out with my brother and the one and only Lisa from Cosmetic Sanctuary! We had a fabulous time!
IT Cosmetics Beauty Blogger Of The Month (August)
IT Cosmetics is one of my favorite makeup brands, so when they asked me to be their blogger of the month for August, I almost fell over dead. The spread they did on me was incredible and I was so honored to be a part of this!
butter LONDON Shout Outs!
I absolutely love when companies recognize bloggers and I was honored to be recognized by butter LONDON twice this year!
I had the opportunity to be sponsored by Nutrisystem for 3 months and ended up meeting my goal of losing 10 pounds!
BlogLovin’ Up & Coming
I stumbled upon this last week – Love For Lacquer was #2 on the BlogLovin’ Up & Coming Blogs! Awesome!
QVC Mention & Guest Post
I did a guest post for QVC on their Mom 2 Mom blog and was also featured on their Facebook page! My grandma was so proud! haha! You can see that guest post HERE!
POPSUGAR Select Beauty Blogger
I was invited to be part of the POPSUGAR Select Beauty Blogger program! I absolutely LOVE being a part of POPSUGAR – SO many amazing opportunities came my way!
I joined Nail Polish Wars & a ton of other wonderful ladies in honoring the amazing Talia Joy and posting Mint Manicures. This has been one of my MOST shared & re-pinned photos to date! I couldn’t be more happier with it. It is definitely Talia Joy to a T!
I was featured three times on Bloom! Once on their homepage under ‘Featured Pro’ and twice on their facebook page – All showcasing the nail art I did with butter LONDON shades.
Eleventh Gorgeous LFL Swag!
When Tracy & Stef tagged me in this photo on Instagram, I seriously had a heart attack. If you can’t tell – they are rocking Love For Lacquer shirts! xo
JulieG Polish & Love For Lacquer
A few months back, I worked with Jesse’s Girl & JulieG to curate my own blogger special! I was featured on their site and fans could purchase my top 5 JulieG polishes for $20.01 + free shipping!
Wantable & Love For Lacquer
This should technically be for next year BUT the official word came out last week that I am the makeup expert for Wantable’s January box! You can check out all the information about that HERE!!
Look – That’s me in an email!
And last & most certainly not least – I managed to reach 987,000 followers. This number still blows me away. I am forever grateful for all of your support this year and none of the above milestones would have been possible without you.
I would also like to give a special shout out to a few brands who have constantly supported Love For Lacquer this year.
