A few weeks ago, I was getting ready one morning when a parcel arrived. I assumed it was one of the Christmas presents I'd ordered online, so I left for work thinking nothing else of it.
When I got home that evening and opened the box, I found this
I had entered Schwarzkopf's LIVE Color XXL Look Book competition months ago, and had won the monthly draw in October... My prize had finally arrived! (If you've not seen their Look Book, check out the gallery here to see some hair inspiration)
Considering I never win anything, this was a huge deal for me. A year's supply of hair dye, a New Look gift card, and other hair styling products - I was in heaven!
A couple of days after this prize had arrived, I was just getting into my car after finishing shopping, and as I was checking my phone I found an email in my inbox. I read this email twice. I put my phone in my handbag and drove home, laughing like a crazy lady. I asked my Mum to read said email because I didn't believe what I was seeing...
I'M GOING TO LONDON?! I WON THE MAJOR PRIZE DRAW?? IS THIS REAL LIFE?!
Words cannot express how excited I am! I get to be styled and made over for a photo shoot that will be in an actual real life magazine that real life people will see... AND it's all happening in London - eek!
I'll make sure to take lots of photos on the day of the photo shoot, and also lots of pics while I'm being touristy around London Town for some blog posts.
Wish me luck!
