2nd Blogiversary Giveaway!

My blog just turned two you guys! :D Who knew I'd keep up with this beauty blog this long. I knew I'd always be blogging. I have other blogs as well. I think I started to tinker around with blogs as early as 2005 or so. I was on Multiply then, and moved to Blogspot when Multiply turned into a Marketplace. I didn't like that very much. Some of my early Blogspot blogs didn't last very long though. I've deleted them then made another when the urge to blog returns.

As for this beauty blog, I wasn't sure it would stick around very long. There were times when I feel the need to take a break from blogging and there were times when I don't think I could share any more of my beauty preferences since I find myself in the minority --- fan of natural makeup looks. How much variety can I make posts about that?

Anyway, it did stick around. I've had a few hiatuses, but I found my blog only became better after the needed breaks.

 As a way to celebrate and thank my readers, I am giving away 30 USD in Paypal so even my international readers can join in. Plus, you can totally decide how you would spend it; maybe get that item you've been eyeing online. And, I won't need to pay for shipping hahaha. It's a total win-win.

Anyway, here are the rules:

  • Mandatory: 
    • Follow me on Bloglovin'.
  • Additional points:
    • Follow me on GFC.
    • Follow me on other social media platforms: Facebook and Twitter.
    • Tweet about the giveaway. Available once a day.
    • Share the banner on your blog.
    • Leave a comment.

The giveaway will run for one month. I will draw the winner on July 28, 2015. The winner will be announced via a blog post and thru social media. Good luck to the participants. :)

    1. Thanks Shayne!

      Is Zoella the cute English youtuber who is rumored to be dating Alfie? :D (I kinda watched a lot of Korean youtubers lately that's why I'm out of the loop with the others) I didn't know she's published a book. Cool!

  4. 2 years - that's amazing! happy blogiversary! If I won I would buy myself some goodies for my birthday... which isn't until October but I would save it until then. There is a Sailor Moon purse I spotted online that I would L-O-V-E to be the owner of ;)


    1. Sailor Moon! Cool! You have one eclectic taste Jess. I would love to see it if/when you do get it. :)

  5. Woot! Congratulations on your blog's 2nd birthday!

    I am planning to buy a John Fogerty cap for my dad's birthday on November. The $30 purse money would be a great help since the merchandise would come all the way from the US (tax really costs a lot!)

    (^-^) Mommy Charm | (^-^)

    1. Tax really does cost a lot. That's one of the reasons I haven't tried ordering from abroad. I wonder how long it takes for the package to arrive?

    2. I was told that it may take up to a month =) That's ok though, if the package wont make it on time for my dad's birthday, then it'd be a birthday & Christmas gift in one! LOL. (^-^)

  6. Probably save the money for Christmas shopping.

    Happy Anniversary and thanks for the giveaway.
