I wanted to share this amazing collection with a fellow Canadian, so I reached out to PR and asked if we could team up. (They were more than happy to do so, and I extend my gratitude on behalf of all my Canadian readers for making this possible!)

Blog News: I Attended a Nicole by OPI Carrie Underwood Media Luncheon with Suzi Weiss-Fischmann (Plus Surprise Giveaway!)

Nicole by OPI Carrie Underwood Collection Media LuncheonBlogging continues to be a very rewarding project for me, and there have been moments when my eyes have watered up, thinking about the kind and talented people I’ve gotten to know and all the doors that have opened as a result of sticking to this since 2010.

On Tuesday October 1st, I attended a media luncheon where Suzi Weiss-Fischmann (the Executive Vice-President and Artistic Director of OPI) unveiled the new Nicole by OPI Carrie Underwood Collection that’s hitting stores in January 2014!

I posted some sneak peeks during the event on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts.

If you’ve followed my blog for some time, you’ll remember that I met Suzi at 2 other events for a blogger dinner showcasing the Nicole by OPI Selena Gomez Collection (the 1st time) and for a media luncheon unveiling the OPI San Francisco Collection (the 2nd time).

For a nailphile to have met Suzi once alone is already a dream come true, so for me to have 3 opportunities seems so unreal! Each time, it’s inspiring!

Keep reading this blog post as I take you along the journey with me and show you photos.

Plus, you’ll want to read until the very end because I have a worldwide giveaway for a special nail polish autographed by Suzi! You won’t want to miss out!

Edit: Congratulations to Suzanne! She won my giveaway for the OPI Pure 18K White Gold & Silver Top Coat signed by Suzi! (She has 48 hours to reply to my e-mail to claim her prize.) Thanks to everyone for participating. Please stay tuned for my next giveaway.

Win-the-Entire-Nicole-by-OPI-Selena-Gomez-Collection

Hehe, I know that I literally just had a nail-polish giveaway very recently, but guess what? Nicole by OPI’s PR team reached out to me and asked if I’d be interested in offering a lucky Canadian reader a fabulous prize – the entire Nicole by OPI Selena Gomez Collection - 14 full-size nail polishes!

I’d have to have a major hole in my head to say no, right? The more often I can offer great giveaways to my loyal readers, the happier I am! And forget shoes, you can never have too many nail polishes! ;)

Surprise!  ;)

Canadians, enter to win the entire OPI Couture de Minnie Collection!

Win the Entire OPI Couture de Minnie Collection

I teamed up with the amazing OPI PR team to make this giveaway possible. (I’ve done international giveaways before, but this time, I want to reach out to my fellow Canadians.)

As a blogger, I’ve collaborated with several PR firms and companies. I’ve been privileged to review new nail polishes that sometimes haven’t even hit the stores yet. It’s really exciting! So, I wanted to share that excitement with Swatch And Learn readers by offering you a chance to get brand-new polishes before they’re officially released. (The OPI Couture de Minnie Collection will officially be released in June, although sometimes there are stores that seem to carry them a little sooner.)

My loyal readers know just how to turn even my worst days into the best days. You’ve left me thoughtful comments and even welcomed me back after I took a short hiatus. Thanks for reinforcing why I blog – to connect with people, to share a similar passion, and to learn from and be inspired by others!

Swatch And Learn readers are the best!

Thanks for touching my heart, opening up to me, caring about what I have to say, and laughing at my jokes. It is greatly appreciated!

To find out how to enter, please carefully read the rest of this post.
