We finally have our group set up and we’re getting ready to do lots of fun things with it including Facebook group only giveaways. We will also be using the group to give Product Girl readers a heads up on new giveaways so you have a chance to enter before anyone else does. We hope to see you there!

It’s Official, I’m Obsessed with Twilight

I swear, I have good intentions when I say things here… I really, really do. I intend to do the things I say but then life gets in the way. 🙂 Something happened over Thanksgiving weekend though, I got some news that was a little unpleasant so I decided to distract myself and my distraction was reading Twilight. Oh my god, this one hell of a distraction!

Twilight: Edward's Crooked SmileI’m normally a slow reader but since that weekend, I’ve spent all of my free time reading the series. I’m a little more than halfway through Breaking Dawn now and all I can think about at work is going home to read! I think it’s safe to say I’m officially obsessed with Twilight now. I’ve put the books aside long enough to see the movie a few times, browse some websites and begin obsessing over Robert Pattinson. I think I only like him in character though. I mean, how could you not? Look at this smile… After I’m done reading Breaking Dawn, I’m moving on to Midnight Sun but that’s not that long in comparison. 😉

So the moral of this story is things will be back to normal here very soon. So bear with me, ok? 🙂 Things will get back to normal soon and we’ll be resuming the rest of the giveaways on Monday, now extending into January to make up for the delay this new obsession has caused. Anyone else obsessed with Twilight? Let’s obsess together. 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving!

While I’m on my way to Thanksgiving dinner with my family, I want to wish all my readers in the US a Happy Thanksgiving. I’ll be back tomorrow so until then Happy Thanksgiving!

Status of Our Total Beauty Total Cure Giveaway

Total Beauty Total Cure So remember when I said our Total Beauty Total Cure giveaway was going to be on the 8th? Well the wifi access in Paris threw that out the window and since I’ve been back from Paris, I’ve been sick and dealing with food poisoning so it hasn’t been a great October (excluding the trip!) for me even though I turn 30 today.

To give you an update on our giveaway for the Total Beauty Total Cure campaign, we’ll now be giving away a prize worth $645 this weekend! Stay tuned for more information on how to win the Clarisonic Yours and Mine set and gorgeous pink bag from My Flat in London.

Also, we got a little something planned for next week to help out with fundraising but we’ll talk more about that as we get closer to Monday! 🙂 For now, I’m going to take it easy, maybe get a mani/pedi and enjoy my birthday.

Under Construction

If you are seeing this message, congratulations! Over the weekend Product Girl has moved to a new server and we are now powered by WordPress. We are all very excited about switching over to this new platform as it allows us to do things with Product Girl that were not possible before. We’ll be introducing new features to the site over the course of the next weeks so please excuse our mess while we work on this. However, if you see a broken image or a bad link, please feel free to leave a comment to let us know. Thank you for your patience with us!

Product Girl Wants You

In case you haven’t noticed, things have slowed down here at Product Girl quite a bit. We’ve had a busy summer and it’s been hard trying to keep up everything that’s been going! Because of that, we’re now looking for new writers to contribute to and help manage Product Girl.

Do you love beauty products as much as we do? Then send me an email with a writing sample. We’d love to have you write for Product Girl. Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • Basic familiarity with various beauty brands.
  • Ability to write in a casual, breezy manner.
  • Willingness to test and review beauty products within a specified time frame.
  • Ability to contribute 3 to 5 posts per week.
  • Interest in helping to manage Product Girl is a plus!
  • Knowledge of basic HTML and familiarity with WordPress is a plus!

While this is not a paid position, you’ll get free beauty products and sneak peeks at the newest products in the industry and chances to attend beauty events depending on your location. Also, Product Girl is a great exposure for your writing!

Now on MySpace, Facebook & Twitter

Sometimes I am a little slow to do certain things and setting Product Girl up for social networking is one those things but it’s finally done now!
