OMG!! I won $200!!!

Hi dolls :) I'm so sorry that I've been away for so long. But I'm back with a super exciting news. I just won $200!! Wait, you what? How? I know, I know, this is so out of blue, so here's the story:
I've been a youtube addict for as long as I can remember. I follow lots of fashion and beauty gurus and I'm totally obssessed. Every now and then, I enter some contests which requires you to make fahsion or beauty related videos, such as a tutorial of some sort. I am not extremely dedicated into that so I don't pay too much effort and time when I do it. At least not enough to make me win anything :P Just last week, I saw this contest popping up in my subscription, it's hosted by seventeen magazine through HelloStyleChannel, which by the way, I absolutely love the sexy VS skanky show. Basically, it's an audience challege which asks you to recreate a cover look. There're 4 choices available, you can watch the intro video HERE if you're curious. But of course, it's already over. When I saw the video, I didn't really care at first thinking that I would never win anyways, why bother? But somehow, as I think about it more and more, I got so excited for some random reasons and I was like, why not? I would just enter it for fun, and if I win, the $200 prize sounds amazing! So I did. And the next thing I know, I won!!
Here's the look I recreated, it's based on the October issue which features Nina Dobrev in the front cover. Of course, since I'm so obsessed with the Vampire Diaries, I have to recreate her cover shoot. Here's my video
I recreated the makeup, hairsyle as well as outfit. I still can't believe I won!
