Join the Gossip's One Year Blogaversary Giveaway!

Today is Join the Gossip's one year anniversary! I got my start while writing for Beauty Chat and with the encouragement of my former boss Elana of Good Girl Gone Shopping. The blog layout has changed three times and my posts are definitely not as consistent as I'd like them to be, but overall I am pretty proud of how it has turned out.

I am a pretty random gal and so are the topics I write about. Last year I set out to have a great time writing (as I am a journalist by trade) and have accomplished that thus far. Thank you to all who have supported me along the way!

To show my appreciation, I will be having a giveaway. The following products, of course all random items, will be awarded to one lucky reader (Be sure to check out the links for product info.):

Kerastase Thermique Leave-in Heat-Activated Reconstructing Milk for Weakened Hair

Lisa Hoffman Spa Facial Packette

To be entered for this contest, please leave me a comment describing what you would like me to blog about. It can be general if it is something you don't think I have ever covered, or more specific if you'd like. 

One winner will be chosen on Saturday, January 17

Good luck--and thanks again for your support!!

Contest only open to continental U.S. residents and those in Canada. Sorry to everyone else, I never do this, but I am doing the shipping myself on this one.

I think you should blog about like "steal the look", like show a celebrity make-up or outfit and then show how to get that look. I've seen it on other blogs and it's always my favorite :)

Ashley said...

I agree with Deanna! And also you could do more outfit pictures, those are always my favorite parts of blogs - I love seeing how people put together their outfits. Thanks so much!

Congratulations on reaching your one-year blogaversary! My blog turns one year old in March, so I know how hard you've worked and how much fun you've had! ;)

As for what to write about, I agree with AK - outfit posts are fun, and they can set you apart from other people who don't practice what they preach about fashion. And, of course, I'd be happy to see shoe posts!

Thanks for asking for input and offering this giveaway.

I think you should keep doing what you're doing! I love reading your opinion on make-up products and affordable fashion. Maybe some more stories of life in hollywood :)

Huguette En said...

Great job now. Maybe more pictures and tips.

Hi! SOrry I've been MIA> Thank you so much for the sweet comment.
Happy holidays to you and congrats on your blogiversary.
Hope you have a wonderfull new year.

Hmm.. what would I like to see u blog about?
I'd say trends. Or more shopping/cute clothes you spot online for good prices.:D

Cali said...

I would like for you to blog about mixing high end makeup with drug store brands. In these tough economic times it's hard to afford all high end cosmetics!

Kim said...

I love your blog as it is, with it's wide variety of info! I agree with Calista about the mixing of high end & less expensive brands of make up to find the perfect looks, but also keep sharing all your great finds along the way! One of my friends from HS was looking for something for New Year's Eve so I linked her the page of your New Year's Dresses & she loves them!
Keep up the good work and here's to another year!

Hey dear,

Happy bloggerversary!!! Aww... you're 1 year old now. How nice!!

I like the fact that you're random, so it never gets boring at all. Just keep doing what you do best. Would be nice if you try some FOTD :) They are always fun

Also, have a great New Year celebrations!!

PS: Please don't count me in for the giveaway. I'm not in US :)By the way, it's so sweet of you to ship the products out yourself. I'll mention your giveaway on one of my posts later.

Donna said...

I would like to see a blog about preparing for emergencies.

Anonymous said...

I'd like to see more of your own outfits, either on you or just layed out. I always think that that is really fun.

Anonymous said...

I like reading about your purchases so maybe keep posting stories about your shopping adventures. It's always cool to see what people are buying

Unknown said...

I think it would be fun if you blogged about all the new nail polishes out now and showed us pictures of them on your fingernails!

Giulianna said...

Happy Blogaversary!

For me, when I see a look somebody is wearing, I want to know which body types can wear that type of pants, skirt, etc. For instance, by nature, I have wide hips and a tiny waist. So I cannot wear some of the fashion trends. I really like when I get a heads up of which looks work for my body type.

Keep up the great work and have a blessed new year!

Mandy said...

Congrats on your accomplishment!
I like the reviews of makeup products and affordable fashion.

Kimberly said...

I would love to see you blog about various kinds of tips, ranging from household, to makeup, clothes, cooking & whatnot.

I have just found you via the Beauty Tyrant and I'm glad I did. I've already signed up via email!

How about some home made beauty tips? These days, cheaper but great quality, is really necessary, to me anyway!

Before and after photoshopped pics are always good and they make me feel better about myself lol

Congrats on your first year, I look forward to getting to know you!

New subscriber, but using natural cosmetics would be a great thing to blog about!

I'd love to see you do some postings on the new season of awards shows -- & all that swag, etc. that they give the (already rich) Celebs!!! (And find a way for us to score some of it, too!!!!)

Unknown said...

I love to see the who looked better, looks, like paris hilton and carmen Elektra were just seen in the same dress, you could poll everyone on who looks better. (not sure how hard that would be to get the photos)

also drugstore finds, we are all pretty much reccessionistas by now aren't we? Like I love Neutrogena's acne line for adult acne, and it works better then any dept store brand.

thanks for the giveaway, and HAPPY 1 YEAR! keep up the good work love!

Hi, and Happy Blogaversary (and New Year)! I just found your blog yesterday through Beauty Tyrant and I really like it, so far. You do a very interesting mix! As for my suggestion, I think I would like to see a product- duplicate, low-end to high-end type thing, where products would be compared according to type, performance, color, effect, cost, etc. If I'm not making this clear, I apologize, but check out the time of my post! I think you probably know what I mean. Great contest, too! Thanks so much!

I just found your blog. Happy Anniversary! I'll be reading your blog to catch up. I'd like to see comparisons of high end and low end products. I'd also like to see makeup look photos that you have done. I'd like to see more nail polish with finished manicures.
