So for those of you who have been following me for a while, you all know that I entered into the Guess One to Watch competition, which was held by Guess Watches.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with this, it was a competition which was in search for their next Guess Access blogger. This required all participants to create an account on their One to Watch Facebook app, and gain as many “style points” as possible within a 2 month period. The top 10 from each country would be selected to move onto the next round, which required each person to submit a blog post. From there, 2 people from each participating country would be selected to become the newest bloggers for Guess.
I entered into this competition hoping for the best, but expecting nothing special to happen. I was very surprised when I received an email informing me that I had, in fact, made it through to the next round in which I was required to submit a post.
My excitement quickly turned to nervousness as I realised the easiest part was over, and that I would have to really prove myself to be able to have a shot at this amazing opportunity.
After wasting a precious week deciding what to write on, thinking and rethinking my decision, I finally sat down and began to write, which of course, ended in me reading, and rereading my post to the point where I had corrected every possible flaw I could find myself.
After submission, I had to wait a gruelling month and a half to find out the decision, which I became very apprehensive about after seeing the other contestants amazing work.
Finally, the day came where we would either receive an email informing us we had won, or not. After a whole day without hearing, I had concluded that I had not won.
All of a sudden, when I was least expecting…
There it was
My golden ticket.
I have been absolutely blessed to be selected to become an Australian blogger for Guess Access! My excitement has shot through the roof.
To all of you who voted in the main round- thank you so much for all your amazing support, you are absolute angels!
I believe my blog post will be posted on the Guess Access blog around the 24th- not entirely sure on that one so don’t hold me to it.
But otherwise keep your eyes peeled for me!
Here are some pictures for you guys, shot by my wonderful best friend at Sydney’s Curl Curl board walk, that weren’t included in my Guess blog post- enjoy!
