It’s the last day of November (WHAT!?!? How did that happen!?) which means tomorrow is the start of BLOGMAS!!! Let the Christmas count down begin! This December I may have bitten off more than I can chew… blogmas, I’m going home to the UK for 2 whole weeks and while I’m there I’ll be working a few days for my parents (check out Peapods here if you need some last-minute Christmas gifts!) as well as doing my usual makeup and beauty bookings. I’ve also got to try to squeeze in catching up with all my beautiful family and friends while I’m back in the UK. What the what!? It gives me anxiety just thinking how I’m going to fit it all in, but who doesn’t love a festive challenge!
This post is just going to be a little introduction to my first 10 days of blogmas. Luckily the very lovely Beth from la blog beaute saved my blogging soul by organising the blogger’s Christmas beauty brawl. “What the heck is that?” I here you ask. Well basically for the first 10 days of the month myself and a group of fantastic beauty bloggers will all be reviewing some beauty products. But to make things a little more interesting it’ll be like a giant virtual game of top it trumps. Each top it trump card will be rated on price, product and packaging. Hopefully this will mean that you can check us all out and see which product is the very best of all that were reviewed.
Still confused? The lovely Beth explains it a little better here:
What is the Blogger’s Christmas Beauty Brawl?
Basically, it’s a review series where a group of UK and US beauty bloggers will be collaborating. Over the next 10 days, we will be reviewing one product a day. Each day it will be a different type of product, such as a mascara. There may be some overlaps with products from popular brands as we won’t know what the other bloggers are reviewing until their posts go live.
Now it’s time to tell you about the fun part, to score our products we will be using Top Trumps cards! Each item will be scored out of 100 for three things; packaging, the product itself, and price. More in-depth reviews of each product will be posted underneath the Top Trumps card.
