And the winner is...

Hi Bellas,

Last night, my boyfriend and I went through all the entries for my Name my Domain website contest. It was pretty difficult to pick a name that I felt would represent me, my image, and my future brand name. I wanted to keep my name in the title because people have been accustomed to it, but I also wanted to kick up my image a knotch to something more snazzy and fun.

After deliberations...and a lot of great suggestions....the winner is....

Phyllis at FortyIsTheNew20 !

She recommended the name http://www.urbanpretty.com/. Don't you love it! I love the contrast of the word and I definitely think it could create a great brand name in the future...possibly a cosmetics line even. My website will read Urban Pretty - Makeup By Ren. So as you see, I will be keeping my name in it...as an explanation of the company name. I'm pulling a Diddy and going from Ren Ren to just plain Ren, because that's how people in my non-blogging life refer to me. For some reason, I get a little embarassed in introducing myself as Ren Ren because it's more of a pet name my friends gave me.

So congratuations Phyllis! There were a lot of other contenders and thank you so much for helping me :)

Phyllis will be receiving a great bag of goodies provided by Stars Makeup Haven and myself, including: A mini Urban Decay Primer Potion, Two Faced Lip Injection Plumper, Two Faced Lip Injection gloss, two pairs of false eyelashes, a bag of empty pigment pans from pressing, Dior gloss, mascara, pigment samples, and more!

Thanks to everyone for participating! Phyllis I will be mailing out your goodies this week :)
