I’ve had a relationship with CVS ever since last spring, when I visited their headquarters in Rhode Island with some blogging buddies and learned all about the CVS Beauty Club. So, a few weeks ago in New York, when I got a call from a friend at CVS inviting me to participate in this blogger video contest for the People’s Choice Awards, I leaped at the chance! (Okay. I didn’t actually leap. I was jet lagged off my face, holding a glass of champagne–excellent combo, no?–and sitting in the Mandarin Oriental’s highly glamorous 35th floor bar overlooking Central Park West. Leaping may have been inappropriate, but I definitely “Yay!”ed a little too loudly.)
Anyhow, the videos are now up and my competition is FIERCE! Two of my good friends Patrice Yursik of Afrobella (can I even properly explain how much I love this woman? Seriously. Not being glib. She’s a wonderful, talented, inspiring human being) and Jeannine Morris of Beauty Sweet Spot (hilarious, down-to-earth, beautiful and super fun) are both in the running. The other two bloggers are Kathryn Finney of Budget Fashionista (who I’ve met a few times and is awesome) and Vera Sweeney of Lady and the Blog (never met Vera, but I found her immensely likable from her video!). The videos live on the People’s Choice Awards website , so please click here to watch and vote for your fair Jolie!

So, there you go. If yours truly gets the most votes, I’ll walk the People’s Choice Awards red carpet–with one of YOU! CVS is graciously allowing me to bring a Jolie reader, and they’ll fly you out and put you up here in LA for the January 11th People’s Choice Awards. How’s that for voting incentive?! (If I win, I’ll run a contest through Rafflecopter to pick my companion fairly. And–full disclosure!–CVS is compensating me for participating.)
