Sunday Link Love, Volume #054


Dusty breaks down red lips for us!

Happy 2011 & Happy Sunday!

The 2011 Bloggies are open for nominations; they are annual awards for blogs of all sizes and niches, and they have a Best Fashion or Beauty Blog category! It’s a great opportunity to recognize your favorite bloggers for their hard work. I made sure to support some of my favorite blogs, like Engadget, Lillyella, Oh No They Didn’t!, and Pawcurious.

I’d also like to express my condolences for all of those (including myself) who head back to school TOMORROW. Like some kind of crazy time warp, I feel as if I hadn’t had a moment to relax during my so-called winter break.

Ahh, it wouldn’t be a new year if we didn’t encounter new problems.  While we attempt to sort through these issues, please leave your comment to enter our Make Up For Ever giveaway on this post. Do not enter again if you already entered once. All comments have been approved and ARE available for us to see on the back-end, but for whatever reason, enabling the comments results in the original post itself not being able to load.  No entries were lost, because the problem is the post no longer loads, not that we didn’t receive entries when the post was loading. 🙂

Problem solved!  This post will now be closed to comments as the original post now works (but all comments from this post are available for us to see and will be counted towards the contest). — Temptalia Team, as of 1/2 @ 3:24PM PST
