I'm Going to Paris!

Total Beauty Paris Trip Remember that L’Oreal Feria party I talked about last month? Total Beauty held a contest and is taking 3 bloggers who particpated to Paris with them and I’m one of them!

The three were chosen by the number of votes their before and after photos received. When I was told I won a trip to Paris, I was in complete shock because I am not that person… I’m not the girl who wins things like this. That shock has continued into the next day. 🙂 I am very excited even though I briefly thought of turning it down (hey, I’m shy!) but it’s the chance of a lifetime and I can’t pass that up… plus I get to meet fellow beauty bloggers that I’ve been talking to for a few years including the lovely Julia from All About the Pretty and Cailin from The Beauty Bunny, who also won the contest.

I leave next Thursday, October 2nd and I come back on Wednesday, October 8th. Considering I’ll be turning the big 3-0 on the 23rd, this makes a fantastic birthday gift! I do plan to continue blogging from Paris, I’m bringing my laptop, camera and my Flip video camera so there will be lots to see while I’m gone. Thank you to everyone who voted and helped get me to Paris!
