The Beauty Blog Bunch Fall Giveaway

The featured company for The Beauty Blogger Bunch Fall 2012 Grand Prize Giveaway is The Balm.

I just joined the Beauty Blogger Bunch and signed up as a sponsor for the Fall 2012 Grand Prize Giveaway. The #bbloggerBunch was created to host huge quarterly beauty giveaways. It is free and open to all beauty or fashion bloggers since the motto is about promoting and encouraging each other, while meeting lots of new friends along the way.

This giveaway will accept entries from the general public but anyone who joins the #bbloggerBunch will be invited to be a part of all the giveaways in one of two ways, either as a beauty host (free) or as a sponsor ($30 +). There were over 4000 entries in the first Grand Prize Giveaway in just 2 weeks!! Beauty Hosts spots just opened up for the upcoming giveaway...but once again spots are limited.

To qualify as a beauty host you must be a beauty blogger that will be hosting a beauty giveaway during the same time frame as The Beauty Blogger Bunch giveaway (October 1st, 2012 - October 15th, 2012) and the value of your prize much be greater than $25. Your link will be published and displayed every time someone enters The Beauty Bunch Fall Giveaway...similar to a blog hop. Beauty giveaways are preferable, but fashion and jewelry giveaways are acceptable too.

• You must include the event in your giveaway post.
• The value of your giveaway must be at least $25. You can choose more than one winner or have multiple prizes.
• You must have an acceptable themed giveaway hosted by yourself on your blog. Although it's not required to use Rafflecopter for your giveaway it is recommended. It is easy and free!
• To gain more exposure to this event we kindly ask if you can post the button in your sidebar, promote the giveaway on your Google, Facebook, Twitter and other social media outlets. The more bloggers that see your link will only increase the exposure to the event, along with traffic to your giveaway.

This is a huge opportunity to gain more exposure and increase traffic to your beauty or fashion blog. Being a sponsor also means your logo will be on the promotional material that is created for that giveaway. The promotional materials will be uploaded on many various social media sites, along with all the other sponsors and the beauty hosts. (*mentioned above)

SPONSORSHIP COST: Minimum $30 (sent via paypal)
• This price includes up to 3 links in the Rafflecopter application, your prize portion and to help cover the cost of shipping and handling.
We have 5 limited spaces for sponsors for each giveaway, so spots will fill up fast, but if spots are full we will put you on a waiting list for a future giveaway. If the response is phenomenal, more frequent giveaways will be offered.

• Sponsors must fill out the form linked below to apply and if approved must agree to send their sponsorship portion two weeks prior to the giveaway starting. We also ask that you submit your artwork (logo, picture, etc.) two weeks prior to the giveaway starting. We will not be responsible for a redesign on promotional material if you fail to meet the deadline.
• Sponsors can be individuals or companies.
• If you would like additional links (3 are included in sponsorship) added to the main Grand Prize Blogger Collaboration Giveaway rafflecopter app, each link will cost $2.

Kerapure Blowout Extender Review

I was very impressed with this product. Not only did it make my hair much straighter, but with use over time it made it much softer and cut down the blow dry time drastically. Below are several photographs to document my review along with a video review.
This safe keratin amino acid based smoothing treatment penetrates into the hair cortex to restructure and rebuild – leaving hair manageable, flexible, glossy and silky smooth. A safe and scientifically advanced alternative to Brazilian Keratin Treatments that contain dangerous formaldehyde-emitting ingredients, KERAPURE™ synergizes keratin proteins and crosslinks amino acids and gold peptides to temporarily alter the structure of the hair.

This exclusive 4-in-1 complex contains a newly discovered cross-linked amino technology containing gold peptides, keratin, amino acids and exotic oils to smooth frizz, restructure the hair, reduce waves and repair damage. KERAPURE™ penetrates through the cuticle into the hair cortex to enhance shine, condition, strength and resistance to all hair types.
