If someone had asked me earlier during spring break where I saw myself during the month of April, I probably would have just shrugged and given a vague response. Never would I have thought that I would he sitting here, typing away as one of the five finalists for Coquitlam Centre's 2012 Teen Blogger competition.
Throughout the month of April, I've had the amazing opportunity of writing a blog once a week for Coquitlam Centre on the latest fashion trends and fashion finds with four other talented ladies. At times, it was a little tricky balancing schoolwork, work, time with family/friends, and the deadlines for our blogs, but in the end, all my hard work really did pay off and I wouldn't have traded this experience for the world.
As a final wrap up for the Teen Blogger contest, Coquitlam Centre kindly hosted a “Celebrity Make Over Party” for myself, a friend, and the four other finalists along with their guests. From sushi and chocolate covered pretzels, to mini manicures and make overs at Sephora, our night was filled with everything a girl could dream of. Thanks to 2nd Look Day Spa, I received an amazing manicure, then received an incredible make over at Sephora from one of the lovely ladies working there, and then finished off by getting my hair curled.
The night ended with the revealing of the official 2012 Teen Blogger, and although I did not win the grand prize, I am so grateful to have been able to share my blogs with my friends, family and the rest of the world. I would love to give a huge thanks to everyone who read my blogs and supported me, since I couldn't have made it through without all of you!
