The mentor wasn’t able to visit the boy at school this week, as we had some snow here in VA, and he was heartbroken because he knew the little boy would be disappointed. We tracked down the principal of the school on FB and left him a message to contact the mentor. I’m definately feeling the Christmas spirit right now :)

  • Ashley

    Ok this is an amazing giveaway- I’ve been wanting this palette forever!
    So I guess my thing is that I am the most driven person I know :) I’ve always worked very hard to get to where I want to be. Probably has something to do with the fact that I’m a perfectionist :) However, in what seems to be contrary to all that, I am very sensitive to other people’s feelings and try to never hurt anyone in any way. I hate conflict too but tend to be a pretty good leader- guess I’m just full of contradictions! (I do follow you on Twitter too btw). Love your blog! Thanks again for the great giveaway.

  • ChrsLvsBks

    I love helping people care for their natural hair. I do my best to help people on forums, during gatherings and strangers in the store (I oftentimes get asked what I do to my hair). I always tell them to have patience and try a product at least three times before classifying it as a no go product. Natural hair is my passion!

    • Brittany

      Woo hooo! Natural hair is one of my passions too.

  • Angela

    I don’t really know anything awesome about me. Is that terrible? I guess I’m a good listener, because several of my friends say I give good advice.

  • Hey Brittany,

    My best friend had a baby 6 days ago, and she just asked me to be his godmother!!! I’m SO SO excited and can’t talk about it without getting choked up :)

    I hope you’re having a great weekend!

    • Brittany

      Congratulations!!!!!!! I know the feeling. Being a godmommy is wonderful.

  • I think your blog rocks (and I love that you rock bold lippies)

  • I am a super sweet person…everybody loves me because I am sincere and gracious…

  • Elizabeth P.

    I am single-handed spreading the word MEEP around the world (:
