I woke up to a box in my inventory, to find out I received an Color of Couture Finalist ring. I was excited, I couldn't wait to put it on my finger. It looks like 2 C's turned in ward with a pearl in the center. Its gorgeous. I was so glad to be a part of COC, and will forever be grateful that I am. The recognition I got from it will stay with me for a long time. It was not an easy contest, it taught me things I did not know, I met people I did not know, I made some friendships. So yes I got a lot out of it. All of these things plus the ring, has made me to think about what next year is gonna be like.
