My QVC Instagram Takeover

by on ‎12-06-2012 05:42 PM

Dear tartelettes, 


I want to thank each and every one of you for tuning in last week to see tarte's “Treat Yourself to Gorgeous 28-Piece Color Collection." This limited-edition QVC holiday exclusive was so loved that we sold out within 24 hours. Wow! Thank you all so much for the tarte love! It means so much to me. I know that with this gorgeous collection (one that's packed with pure ingredients), there'll be no shortage of smiles this season...whether you decide to treat yourself or a loved one!


Speaking of "treats," I perhaps received the biggest treat of all when the super-glamorous Naomi from QVC asked me to take over QVC’s Instagram and Twitter accounts for 24 hours to share my stories from my day at QVC. If you were plugged into social that day, you probably checked out snapshots of my shoe selection, model prep time, exciting moments before going on air, and even quiet moments off air when I was roaming the halls, sneaking in a healthy snack, or (to my surprise) finding a bouquet of flowers from Scott in my dressing room. I even had the opportunity to connect and meet some of you during a live Q&A on Instagram! How fun was that? Smiley Happy For those of you who missed the show or want to connect again, please check out photos from our TSVSM day at QVC below! I hope I have this wonderful opportunity again and get to meet more of you very soon! 


Until then, please keep in touch, tartelettes, by following me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
