I Lost, But It’s Ok :)

My dear friends and loved ones,

After a last minute flurry of activity, with votes coming in left, right and centre, pushing my final vote count to an unimaginable 1101, I still only managed to finish in second place.

As I write this, I’m wiping away a tear from my eye. Not a tear of sorrow, but a tear of joy and gratitude.

I never in my wildest dreams thought I’d be able to garner more than a handful of votes, never mind enough votes to make me a serious contender for the top spot. No matter what happens, what the outcome, I know that I’m truly the luckiest gal in the world. Whee!

Waking up everyday to see your encouraging messages gave me the strength and courage to keep going, even when it seemed like there was no hope. But dear friends, hope is not lost. With your support, I was able to pour my heart and soul into two posts which were submitted to the judges for their consideration. You can read all the finalists’ submissions here –

With the ‘Most Popular’ spot taken, we can still vie for the judges’ choice for Best Beauty Blog 2015.

If lady luck was to shine on me one more time, this will surely be a prize that we all earned together.

The award ceremony takes place on July 23rd, I hope that the next time you hear from me, I will be bringing tidings of joy.

You’re my life force, you’re my friends. I wuv you all!!

Your friend, Juliana
