If you missed your opportunity to receive a Million Dollar Makeover with Macy's and Clinton Kelley last year, no need to worry. The contest is back again for 2012.
The contest kicked off yesterday, and just as in 2011, the winner will receive the makeover of a lifetime. Clinton Kelley, Macy's style expert and co-host of TLC's What Not To Wear and ABC's The Chew was quoted in a press release, saying, “I’m thrilled to be back hosting Macy’s Million Dollar Makeover. Last year was a whirlwind of excitement and has given me a renewed sense of accomplishment and enthusiasm. Not only will this year’s winner receive one million dollars, but we’re helping bring his or her dream to life!”
I was personally so thrilled to hear about this contest that I considered entering, and after dreaming of all the possibilities last night, today I have decided to move full steam ahead and go for it. So, if you've been bitten by the makeover bug and want to try your hand at the contest too, entries will be taken through Jan. 31. Simply log on to www.facebook.com/macys, like Macy’s Facebook page, and then submit a short entry video about your goals and aspirations in the areas of food, fashion and home.
Last year, there were more than 19,000 entries, so I'm sure competition will be even tougher this year. But hey, one thing I can say is that I'm sure my odds of winning are better than hitting the lotto. Right?
