Edit (October 26, 2014 at 5:30 pm EDT): Congratulations, Katherine! You’ve won! Please reply to the e-mail I sent you within 48 hours to claim your prize.
Thanks to everyone for participating! (Stay tuned because really soon, I’m going to have another fun giveaway.)
Today is Canadian Thanksgiving, and I thought it was very fitting to have a surprise worldwide giveaway to remind my amazing blog readers of how much I appreciate you all.
From now until Friday October 24, 2014 at 11:59 pm EDT, you can enter for a chance to win the brand new OPI Don’t Speak 18K Gold Top Coat, which is a collaboration with Gwen Stefani! (You may remember me posting Instagram photos here and here.)
(OPI Don’t Speak features yellowish-gold flakes and iridescent glitter. The OPI Mariah Carey gold top coat has white gold flakes. The OPI Man with the Golden Gun gold top coat has yellowish-gold flakes. They’re all different.)
Blogging can be very challenging, especially when you’re going through personal or work issues and dealing with life’s obstacles. It can be hard to stay positive when you’re feeling crummy or having a bad day. But readers like you somehow manage to boost my spirits, and I take it to heart because it’s so amazing how people I’ve never met in person show me how much they genuinely care. It touches my heart!
The past week has been pretty insane after work, and you may have noticed that the posts weren’t as frequent as usual. (There’s always a lot going on, but that week was highly stressful and jam-packed.)
Thank you to my loyal readers who stayed and were patient and understanding! 🙂
I want to reciprocate all the love and support you give me, even though there’s no way I can match your sky-high level that you give me on a daily basis.
Check out the rest of this blog post to get the full details on how to enter my giveaway. (Please read it carefully so that your entry qualifies.)
P.S. I’ll be attending the IMATS (International Makeup Artist Trade Show) in Toronto on Saturday November 22, 2014. So, if you’re also going and see me, don’t hesitate to say hi! 🙂 (The trade show is open to the public. You don’t have to be a makeup artist to attend. I’m not a makeup artist, but it’s fun to see the creativity and trends in the industry. Plus there are plenty of great shopping deals and seminars from which you can learn new tips and tricks from professionals!)
Ends: Friday October 24, 2014 at 11:59 pm EDT
