UPDATES: Rimmel Beauty Insider Behind the Scenes Video + New Social Media Links (Follow Me!)

Hi everyone!

You might remember from a few posts back that I won the Rimmel Beauty Insider Competition, and I was lucky enough to film a bunch of fun beauty how-to videos with the Girlfriend Rimmel Model Search winner Grace and one of Rimmel London's top makeup artists, Laurel Brown.

Check out the link above to watch the videos, or take a look at the video below for a behind the scenes peek into what went on during the shoot! It was a super fun day :)

Also, I was lucky enough to receive an internship offer with Collegefashionista, a street style fashion website with a focus on trendy college and university students! After being featured on their website here, I decided to apply with them to become a Style Guru for my university, and I got the gig!

So during January - May 2013, I'll be taking snaps of well-dressed fashionistas and fashionistos for Collegefashionista and my posts will go up on their website every Thursday, so drop by and take a look when you can! I'll be letting you guys know here on my blog when each post goes up, so you won't miss a thing.

And if you're looking for more Taken By Surprise updates and fun extras, I've just created Google +, Tumblr, and Pinterest accounts, so if you're on any of those social media platforms, I would love you if you followed me! I'm still new to them, so bare with me while I get acquainted.

If you ever feel like chatting, I also have an Instagram (@hijessicaanne) and Twitter, and I would love it if you said hi!

Hope your holidays are going wonderfully, and that you're enjoying the lead-up til Christmas!
