The Cosmetic Market fiesta means a giveaway for you!

Unrelated Preamble: Thanks to all those who wrote such sweet things after my last post. The love and support is palpable. This week, I'm taking baby steps into a normal non emotionally trainwrecky world and playing post catch-up. 

I'm not a big deal blogger at all...but if people want to believe I have some shred of influence on anyone...I will allow them that delusion...especially if it means I get to be invited to some event I'm not cool enough to be at.

That's basically what happened yesterday when I was invited to a style party at the Green Hills location of The Cosmetic Market. The invite mentioned margaritas, Mexican food and free beauty products and demos so of course I was like, "yep, where do I sign?" Not to mention I got to spend time with some of my favorite Nashville blogging friends Trisha (of Let's Go Ride a Bike), Lauren (of Lladybird), Kaelah (of The Clueless Girl's Guide) and Jen (of Librarian Tells All). Without allies, I probably would have been overwhelmed.

Because I suck at being a blogger, and took zero photos [Tangent: I'm the worst! I really should have taken pictures if for no other reason than to immortalize the fact that I wore red lipstick and it looked good (according to makeup experts who don't subscribe to my assertion that lipsmackers = lipstick.) and it wasn't all smeared on my face and teeth. Capturing that rarity on film would be like catching lightning in a bottle.} I pretty much was like, "I need to write about this event but I have zero to show for it" (unless of course, I did some rudimentary photoshopping to recreate the evening or just posted stock photos of eye shadows.)  I thought I needed to do something to give a special shoutout to The Cosmetics Market for sponsoring such a cool outreach opportunity and sending me home with a pretty hefty swag bag. While dumping out my goodies and rifling through them like a fat kid with their Halloween candy, I decided it was an embarrassment of riches.


My shelves already runneth over due to my impulse purchasing power, and I only have so much skin and hair! Some of these products were just begging to be shared (Although I did keep some for myself. I am not that generous!) ...Eureka! A giveaway! [Tangent: Also, men that read this blog, more than half of these products are fairly unisex...like just because you are a dude, doesn't mean you can't have pretty skin and hair, right?] There's all sorts of good stuff in there from brands like Kevin Murphy, Ahava, Bumble and Bumble and many others. You'll be getting a nice assortment.

It's simple to enter below and if you already like my facebook page, you are already partially there!
