Hey Look, I Won a Contest!


Now I realize this post will be the second Sarah-pats-herself-on-the-back-and-smiles post of the week but....well, here it is.  As some of you may know, or have inferred on your own, I am obsessed with social media.  I have been doing social media consulting while still in school and hope that I can soon make my creepy internet obsession into a legitimate and fruitful career.

I have previously mentioned the entertaining and informative Spa Week Blog in a post you may recall.  (If you saw the post, the video is probably hard to forget!)  SpaWeek.com's blog recently held a contest that asked participants to provide social media advice for Karla Farach, President and Founder of KROIA Skincare.  KROIA Skincare offers products that approach skincare holistically, integrating chromotherapy, gemstones, and cutting edge ingredients.

Well, I won and my blog was featured on the site!  So exciting!  I offered social media advice that focused on genuine and meaningful interactions with current and potential customers.  If you would like to see my response, check out the post from the contest here!

I also won a contest yesterday when I swiftly identified this picture as the ceiling of The Cheesecake Factory.  I almost wish I was joking.  I guess gazing up at the artfully decorated ceiling after consuming thousands of calories in cheesecake has finally paid off.  I feel as if I have won the ultimate fat kid contest.  Next, I shall shoot for winning a contest identifying cheeses through the sense of smell or possibly become a pizza taste tester for a living.  The pie sky is the limit!

  4. Congrats on winning the contest! If I ever, and I mean ever, am on "Who Wants to Be A Millionare?" or some quiz show where $1,000,000 is at stake and I need someone to I.D. restaurant ceilings...darling, you are my girl! Haha!
