We’re 4 Today! WIN One of TEN $15 Sephora Gift Cards

Share this post:

Woo hoo! Today is The Style and Beauty Doctor‘s 4th birthday!!! And coincidentally, just a few weeks ago (10/29/11) marked a year since I quit the corporate world to run this blog (and my ten other creative jobs–yeah, I’m a real life member of the Hedley family) full time. Woo hoo!

*throws confetti in the air*

*gets mad I gotta clean up the confetti*

What started as a vehicle to promote my then part-time makeup and image consulting business turned into so many career opportunities and fun moments. Because of this blog I’ve added freelance writer and radio fashion and beauty producer to my resume, I’ve met greats like Anna Wintour, Tom Ford, and Pat McGrath, Too Faced Cosmetics named me one of their first Beauty Bloggers of the Month, I’ve been in both Essence and EBONY, and even had a JEEP video profile. Most importantly I got to meet so many of you whether in person or through the emails, tweets, and Facebook comments you send me. I appreciate each and every one of you who comes to this site whether you’ve been here all four years or the last four days. As always, if you have blog post suggestions, style or beauty questions, or just want to say hey, contact me.

So to celebrate this mini milestone, thanks to the social media group and marketing agency behind Yahoo! and Sephora,

TEN of you will each win a $15 Sephora gift card!

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment and use the Rafflecopter widget below (may need to wait for it to load). For extra entries, follow me on Twitter and tweet “Enter to win one of TEN $15 Sephora Gift Cards with @StyleNBeautyDoc: http://bit.ly/u4FuaC“, and like The Style and Beauty Doctor on Facebook.

You MUST be a U.S. resident. Winners have 24 hours to respond once notified or will forfeit their prize and another winner will be chosen. Hard gift cards will be mailed to winners. Contest ends November 29, 2011 at 12:01 A.M. EST.

    Congrats on your 4th year, Danielle! I go to a university that is really big on creating Wall Street types, so it’s great to see someone that has successfully pursued a more creative career instead. If I win this $15 Sephora gift card, I’d like to put it toward Urban Decay’s Naked Palette or MUFE’s Face & Body Makeup.

    • Danielle says:

      Hey Nikki K! Yep—I went to a similar university though I did get my degree in a creative field (Marketing). I’m not making anywhere near Wall Street money (YET), but I’m happy :)

    Happy Blog-A-Versary

    Blog Post Suggestion: Eye creams for women of color. Cause girl I’ve been on Sephora and then Youtube to find people who’ve used the products I’ve shortlisted and am still up in the air as to where my money (and hopefully this gift card) will go. Please help this over 30 woman preserve her pretty with a wrinkle reducing/preventative, under-eye brightening cream… if it exists.

  46. Q says:
