I am beyond excited and proud to be BeautySouthAfrica.com‘s very first ‘Blogger Of The Month’. If you haven’t heard of BeautySouthAfrica, then keep reading because their website is very interesting and interactive too. They refer to themselves as an online beauty magazine, your pre-shop stop for product information and reviews. What makes their website unique is that you are able to join their loyalty program to earn points, trial beauty products and share your experiences (write your very own reviews). In case you were wondering – Nope, there are no typos in the title of this blog post, their registered name is ‘BeautySouthAfrica’ (no spaces).
You can become a part of the BeautySouthAfrica.com community by registering to become a Beauty Addict (signing up is 100% free). If you are involved on the site i.e. you comment regularly, review your own products, and enter competitions, you could receive free beauty products to sample and review. You will gain access to exclusive beauty events and competitions – exciting, right? You can read a bit more about their loyalty programme here.
When BeautySouthAfrica first contacted me a couple of weeks ago and told me about their new ‘Blogger Of The Month’ initiative, I was very intrigued. And the fact that they nominated little ol’ me as their first blogger made me feel very special indeed. They asked me to write 2 articles for their website, film a video for their YouTube channel, and take over their Instagram account during the month of September. Keep your eyes peeled, as I’ll be tweeting & Facebook-posting notifications as soon as my articles go live on their website. And I will also let you know when my video is up on their YouTube channel.
BeautySouthAfrica introduced me on their website and social media platforms this past Tuesday, and for the introduction article they asked me to answer 10 questions. If you’re keen to get to know me a little bit better, then take a look at their ‘ Introducing Blogger Of The Month: Luzanne From Pink Peonies’ article here. Spoiler…they also asked me to list 3 tips for someone who would like to start a blog.
My first article titled ‘Five Products To Get You Ready For Spring’ went up earlier today, and you can read all about why I chose the products you see in the above photo here. My second article will be a ‘How To’ and I’m very excited for you to see what I have in store for that one.
A big thank you to BeautySouthAfrica for choosing me as their ‘Blogger Of The Month’, I look forward to working with them this month.
P.S. Just to keep it open and honest, I am being paid to write the 2 articles and film the video for them. As you already know, though, I love flicking my money at the Clicks and Dis-Chem cashiers (at this stage, we’re already on a first-name basis). So the money I make from freelance work and sponsored blog posts goes straight back into the ‘beauty shopping’ piggy bank for haul videos and product reviews.
