I gave in to giveaways

Because who doesn't love free stuff?

One thing bloggers like to do is host giveaways where they can share cool products with readers and also encourage participation on their various social media outlets. For a while, I didn't enter the giveaways because: A) I didn't think I'd win. B) They usually make you tweet semi-annoying things. And C) The big-time bloggers don't follow back.

After discovering smaller, local bloggers who gave away some awesome things, I decided to go for it. In one month I won three giveaways! The most recent arrived this week.

Lip products from Confessions of a Makeup Hoarder
Marissa at Confessions of a Makeup Hoarder hosted this giveaway for her birthday. Can you believe it? For her birthday she gave away: A MAC lipstick in Girl About Town, NYX lip gloss in Beige, Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie, and EOS lip balm in strawberry sorbet. I love it!

I also won a gorgeous silver necklace and gold arrow bracelet by Stella & Dot via Avec Amber and a super cool cork pendant by Snoozer Loser via Jump Into Puddles.

Thank you ladies for these awesome gifts and the opportunity to collect! Someday when I'm not moving, getting divorced or otherwise uprooting my life I hope I can host a giveaway as well. :-)

Have a great weekend!


  1. I love entering giveaways! Especially the ones that don't have 100,000 entries ha ha :D

  2. Yay! glad you won! And thank you for not showing the card with my horrible handwriting on it! ;)


  3. Hi Amanda! Thanks for following my blog and CONGRATS! Winning three giveaways... you must have a secret trick ;) Can't wait to explore your blog more! It's always great to meet more fashionably inclined people from Seattle.
