This is a heads up for all the lovely ladies who have joined me on my journey of beauty awakening. To all of you who’ve been following my progress so far, I thank you for keeping me company on this journey that has so far turned out to be a lot more colourful than I had expected. If you’ve ever read my early posts, you would know that I was inspired to make a foray into the quirky world of beauty blogging after coming third in a contest held by the beautiful and talented Gail of oogle makeup. I honestly believe that if it wasn’t for this turn of events, I would not be sitting here writing this!
It is ironic that I myself have never held a giveaway for you before but that, ladies, is about to change. As my way of showing my appreciation to all those who are taking this journey with me (um, Blogger prefers to call you followers), I will be starting a giveaway of my own very soon. To be more specific, I will be holding little giveaways every now and then. It isn’t exactly for the holiday season as it will be on an ongoing basis.
There will be times when the giveaway will be a straight-out giveaway which you would be able to tell from the title. That needs no further explanation as it’s the norm of the norm, right?
However, sometimes, the giveaway would be coupled to a post, which could mean that you may not know about it unless you read the whole post (and no, I don’t mean simply scrolling down) because I may not announce it in the title (let’s do something different here!). Seriously, I think if you take the trouble to read my posts, you could then be rewarded with a chance of winning something that is written about in that post! However, I know, I know, we all lead busy lives and we need reminders. So I will make sure to include a little reminder somewhere on the homepage.
The premise is simple. These little giveaways will cover a range of products, anything from drugstore and upwards. Some will be Dutch brands and some not. Some are for fun, and some are huge loves of mine. I’m also aware that there are makeup products that are not available outside of the Netherlands, so I thought it would be great to sometimes feature these items in my giveaways. I will be christening these giveaways Sharing the Fun and/or Sharing the Love because that is essentially what it’s all about!
Oh, by the way, the winners will be picked randomly but I won’t be using random.org as my number generator. This may sound odd to you, but I’ve asked my darling mother to be my random number generator and even odder still, she has actually agreed (Thanks, Mum!). My mum doesn’t live within a half hour’s drive from me but she is just a phone call away. I won’t be able to show you the number(s) she picks by way of a photo or a screen shot of the number generation, but hey, would I lie about my mother?!
Thank you very much for your support and for reading this post right to the end. So, do keep your eyes peeled. You have been forewarned, my lovely companions!
