Do you have friends that you’d do just about anything for?

Emily and Shireen are two of mine.

We’re all headed to BlogHer next week in New York City and Windows is offering up a once in a lifetime chance for five attendees.

Head to toe makeover, clothes, a celebrity stylist, a new computer…dude.

If there is anyone who deserves this, it’s Shireen. Holy cow I love this girl, if you know her then you’ll know why.

Emily and I had to write a post or make a video to enter her, we decided to go the video route and here it is:

Emily and I would love any and all support you could show Shireen in this contest. She’s an amazing girl, but you already know that because you watched the video right?

Her 30th birthday is coming up at the end of August and hopefully this contest can jump start 30 into being her best year ever.


In writing this post, Iā€™m entering into the Microsoft Windows Style Makeover Sweepstakes for a chance to win a head to toe makeover. (For Shireen.)



  1. Love this!! Pulling for her so hard!

    (AND I CRIED ABOUT HOW HAPPY I AM FOR HER NEW CAT! I’m SO completely Team Shireen!)

    Good luck!


  2. Can we vote? I’m Team Shireen too. Let’s DO this, ladies!
