So I’m in Chicago. And it’s absolutely wonderful. This city is seriously spectacular, I love it.
I am popping in for all you lovely ladies who are rocking #BlogHer13 this year. Guess what — ULTA Beauty, one of my favorite stores in the world — has a booth at the expo. You know why this is so much stinkin’ fun? They have a lot of cool stuff going on and I wanted to share.
I’ll also be hanging out at their booth for part of the weekend and I would totally, absolutely love it if you stopped by. Like, seriously. Let’s be friends.
ULTA wants to encourage women to embrace the lighter side of beauty and record a short video about your #BeautyLOL for a chance to win $2,000. Kinda fun, isn’t it? I have a few I could record. Like the one time I had to get my hoo-haa waxed in France. Let’s just say they’re not as modest over there. My girl Hillary has a funny one too. And since she’s hilarious, I can’t wait to see her video.
Since you’re already gonna come by to visit, since you’re cool like that, you should record yours too! I mean, we can all get a good laugh together. #BeautyLOL right? So fun! And you’ll be entered to win $2,000 gift card to ULTA. Seriously? Count me in!
Then on Saturday night there is a blogger fashion show where some super hot ladies will be rocking the runway. You’re gonna need to be there because there’s gonna be some super awesome swag. Hair & beauty products? YES PLEASE. Oh and ULTA Beauty hair and makeup artists will be making them up real nice. I know I would love to learn a thing or two from them!
Have you seen Bridesmaids? (Not off topic, stay with me for a sec.) Seriously funny movie. Well, the ‘mom’ bridesmaid – she’s hilarious – you’ll get a chance to meet Wendi McLendon-Covey at the Fashion Show Reception Saturday night! I just can’t wait for her to crack me up.
So want to hear a personal #BeautyLOL to get you started? In college my friend asked me to help her Nair the hair off her upper lip. Of course I’ll help! These things need to be taken care of. Half way through the time allotted her upper lip started to burn. “Oh that’s normal. It should burn a little bit” I told her. “No really, it burns a lot!” she informed me. “Fine. Take it off. Big baby.” Sure enough, her upper lip was burnt. Like visibly red burn marks! Whoops. So on her date the next day, her relatively new boyfriend asked her what happened. Want to know what she said? She burnt it with a curling iron. Say Whaaaat? How’d she get a curling iron there? But yes, the boyfriend believed her.
They’re married & on baby #4 so something else must have gone right. #BeautyLOL
So ULTA is inviting everyone to share their funniest Beauty LOLs in the form of stories, photos, or videos for the chance to win a $2,000 ULTA Beauty gift card. BlogHer attendees will have the first chance to enter before the contest opens to the public and will be the first to begin collecting votes for their LOLs online. (All the hilarious entries will be available to view, vote on, share, and enjoy at ULTABeautyLOLs.com.) Friends and fans of each LOL can vote for them once a day, until the winners are announced in late September.
So what are you waiting for? Come on over!
