The BKc, Nell’s Full Time support: Earlier today The BKc connected with our good friend Nell Alk , a writer and a longtime fan of the brand. Instead of interviewing The Bearded Man, as she’s done a few times before in this instance the conversation focused on her.
Nell is presently participating as a top ten finalist in a life-changing competition: Sunglass Hut’s Full Time Fabulous.
Two months ago, Nell stopped by the shop for The BKc re-opening after our NYc makeover and hinted that she was working on an unusual project. In the chaos of the day, none of us really understood the magnitude of the challenge, but, upon further discussion, it was clear Nell was embarking on the experience of a lifetime. In short: Enter a blogging contest with a 60-second video clip and come in 11th out of 350 contestants based on votes alone, then get hand-picked to be one of nine who move on to the next round.
During the month of December, Nell has been maintaining a vibrant blog , through Sunglass Hut, trying to prove to the judges (and her readers) that she’s the girl for the gig. The prize? $100,000, a furnished apartment in downtown NYC and a 12-month contract to travel the world reporting on the latest fashionable things for Sunglass Hut. WHAT!!! Yep, you read correctly. Now you know why The Bearded Man couldn’t help but throw a little love her way. After all, we are friends and she’s always had our back.
The blog-off is almost coming to a close, Friday December 31st midnight EST, so get at her blog to as soon – and as often – as you can. Check back daily. She’s more than just a writer and reporter. She knows the interesting characters and designers to highlight and could sell me sunglasses any day. “Like” her posts, 5-star-rate her posts, comment on her posts and re-tweet her posts. Post her posts to Facebook. We know Nell can do this job. She’s proved it time and time again and we wouldn’t get behind her if we didn’t believe in her. Sunglass Hut, if you’re reading, Nell is your leading, fashion-savvy lady!
Plus, she has great taste in candles, buying a couple every time she comes by the shop. As they say you are the company you keep and BKc is proud of you Nell. The BKc Style + Character & The 100 Year Plan . . .
