From the very bottom of my heart–for the love of all things beauty–THANK YOU for making this happen.

Every vote cast showed so much support for Temptalia, and all of those votes paid off! We were up against some fierce competition, and I was so (insanely happily) surprised to have won.

As soon as I woke up, I checked my Blackberry, and I saw the announcement e-mail, I held my breath while I clicked it open–and I screamed so loud when I read we won! This is one of those moments in life where you know your hard work has paid off and given back to you. I am humbled and honored to have received such a tremendous outpouring of support from all of you. Thank you again for being a part of such a special moment in my life!

Congratulations to all of the other Glam Network Award Winners!

    Christine – I totally know how much this means to you & how sincere you are to your readers in giving thanks. My husband runs a huge sports blog that is at the top of the ratings & over the past 3 years I’ve seen first hand the blood, sweat & tears that goes into making it a success. It is no walk in the park, that’s for sure. You bust your butt on a daily basis to give us Temptalia & all that it is. We can’t thank you enough for putting us readers first and doing this for us! It shows everyday how much you love doing what you do & we thank you. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
