I got a great e-mail the other day from Erika over at Makeup Bag giving me great news! 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic has been included on Shop 5's top 5 Beauty Blog List! I'm in great company with my other friends Daneen from Spoiled Pretty, Makeup Bag, Amber from Beauty Blogging Junkie and even Kristin from Beauty Addict!
I'm incredibly honored to have made this list! It does seem to have rankings... which are submitted by users (nice!), so run over there and review or score 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic, I'd love to move up in the rankings!

I don't really travel that much, particularly outside of the US. My husband and I had big plans to travel to London and Paris for our honeymoon, but when the Iraq war started (and the French decided they hate Americans even more than usual) we changed our plans to go to Maui. We were so last minute we even had to eat the cost of our Chunnel tickets since the return date had passed! I still haven't used the passport I got for that trip!
So, remember that ad I had here for the Total Beauty contest where you could win a car? TB had a correlating contest for bloggers. They kept track of where clicks were coming from and based on increase in traffic, etc. they decided to bring 3 bloggers with them to Paris! I won! I have no idea how this happened. If I had really been wanting badly to win (or at least thought I had a chance of winning) I likely would have promoted the contest more, mentioned it in posts and such. But, I thought there was no chance of me winning. But I hoped that maybe one of my readers would win the hybrid car filled with organic products like Origins Organics! (Did you win??? Let me know!) So, up the image went and everyone clicked me into a trip to Paris! Thank you so much!
So, I will finally be able to use my passport! I'll be going to Paris for a few days in October (what does one wear in Paris in October? I'm thinking a Trench Coat will be a big must buy for me, otherwise I'm not sure)....
We'll be heading to Beyond Beauty Paris which looks like a huge beauty convention with the most amazing brands! I'll get a ton of great information and learn about new innovations!
The other bloggers coming with me include Tammy from A Mom in Red High Heels, which I'm particularly excited about, though she is very chic, so I'll need amazing clothes too... Nadine from Jolie Nadine will be there as well!
Stay tuned for more information about Paris and travel as I freak out even more about my 3 day trip!
