I've got some wonderful news to share!
Every year, Beautyheaven, one of my favourite beauty websites, holds a competition for bloggers; divided into several categories, the shortlisted entries are then opened to public voting, with the winners from each category winning a prize pack, and most importantly, a chance to guest blog at Beautyheaven for a whole year!
The Made Up Maiden is fortunate enough to be shortlisted in the 2013 Blogstar Awards for "Out with the twenties, in with the thirties" in the Health Guru Category.
Writing for Beautyheaven would be an absolute dream come true, however, it's an honour to even be shortlisted for a post that means so much to me personally. That blog post is one that came from my heart, and I honestly felt like I was baring my soul and sharing a piece of my heart with my dear readers. While makeup is a wonderful way to express your personality and add a little confidence to your step, it means nothing without a peaceful mind and heart. When I'm feeling a little upset, that's the post I like to revisit as it really helps me get everything back in perspective.
I would love if you could spare a few minutes to visit the Health Guru Category and if you think my entry is the best, throw a vote my way! You'd be helping me make a dream come true. :)
Don't forget to visit the other categories also, I have many lovely blogger friends also nominated!
You do have to be registered on Beautyheaven to vote, which you can do by visiting here. Registering is very easy and only takes 2 minutes, after which you can fill in your votes on this form. Voting is only open from the 21st of July until the midnight on the 31st of July, so please try to get your votes in as early as possible! You could actually WIN one of 100 packs just by voting for your favourites!
Thank you so much to those of you who have expressed your support, I have truly blessed to have made so many lovely friends! Regardless of what happens with the competition, I'm already a winner!
