Mindanao Blog Awards 2013 Best Beauty Blog

It was in 2011 when this personal nook gradually transformed into a full-blown beauty blog. Back then, all I wanted to do was chronicle my latest beauty and skincare discoveries. It was more on experimenting and trying to figure out what products work for me, rather than sharing what I may or may not know about the topic. I thought it was just a phase, because frankly enough, I don’t buy a lot of beauty products; I feared that I will later on run out of things to write about. Surprisingly, I was able to sustain it. Yes, I may not blog regularly, but I have been quite spontaneous in sharing my beauty discoveries.

In the process, not only was I able to share my knowledge, but I’ve also learned a lot from my readers who willingly share their beauty secrets with me. It’s always fun to read comments from you guys, especially those that are helpful to the other readers who also stop by my blog. I have quite a few blogs under my hat, but as cheesy as it may sound, As Told By Julz is and will always be my favorite one because I know I have a few but loyal readers here. And I am very thankful and honored for that. Without you, I don’t think I’d ever continue blabbering about beauty and skincare products. 
Two years, 400 posts, and a handful of beauty experiments later, my blog finally received its very first recognition. As Told By Julz was named as the Best Beauty Blog in the Mindanao Blog Awards 2013, which was culminated last Saturday, October 26, 2013 at the Eagle’s Bar, Marco Polo Hotel Davao. Bloggers from different corners of Mindanao gathered together to honor and celebrate the Best of the Best.

I am still in awe at this moment and it’s safe to say, it hasn’t sunk in yet. Sometimes, I’d stare at my plaque and pinch my cheeks while asking myself “Did that night really happen?”. See, I never thought that my enthusiasm over lipsticks and nail polishes would put me into the spotlight. Hence my surprised but happy face up there. =)

Again, Thank you!
