the time has come : GIVEAWAY!

YAY! If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you may have already seen my late night sneak peak at the giveaway! I just couldn't wait any longer. Today I reached 190 followers and I thought - that's close enough! Plus, if you read this post, you know I was planning to do it early anyway as it is now A Reader Apprecation Giveaway because whether there are 200 of you, 2000 of you or 2 of you - I still love you the same and you make this little blog worth writing! Here's the sneak peak instagram I posted :

Who's excited? I am. I may be the only one but I'm excited enough for the rest of the world so thats fine. Here is a picture of the whole and complete giveaway except tomorrow I will probably shop more and add to it..don't judge me. The two toughest challenges I faced putting this together were a)telling myself I didn't NEED to spend a fortune and b)actually GIVING it away and not keeping it for myself. I went with things I really enjoy because I figure if I enjoyed them, and you read my blog, you might just like them too. If you don't, you probably know someone who you can regift to (I think regifting is the best). So here's what's included :

1. A Cinderella Pez! My favorite disney AND pez? Score!
2.Mulled Cider Candle - I freakin LOVE holiday candles!
3. Maybelline Baby Lips in Peppermint - Literally the best balm I've ever used.
4. Maybelline Color Tattoo In Bad To The Bronze - Love this shit.
5. 4 Mini Polishes from LA Color - These were too cute to resist. I paint my nails way too often.
6. Sweet Tarts. Enough said.
7. Avon Super Shock Max Macara - I'm constantly on the hunt for the perfect mascara! Avon seems like an old lady brand but they seriously have never let me down.
8. $15 Starbucks Gift Card. I originally bought this to be part of a group giveaway but the blogger never got back to me so now you guys get a chance to win it instead! Sounds good to me. 

Just to let you know - the babylips and color tattoo shadow are arriving at my house this weekend aha. So yes, the ones pictured are out of the packaging because they are mine aha. The one's that will be a part of the giveaway will be in their original packaging!

So get entering and then share the love so everyone else can enter as well. Normally if I did a giveaway I would just be like - free for all, everyone enter. This time around I am going to have it more geared towards my actual readers, those who follow me and read my shit. So there is a free vote for whoever but there is also one worth more for my followers. Those are mandatory and unlock the other votes that only those who follow me using Google Friend Connect can enter with - you have way more of a chance to win as an actual follower which is my aim for this giveaway.

Seriously though thank you so much to my readers! You guys rock and get me through all my issues and laugh with me and at me and make blogging even more easy to love. I never would've imagined I would end up with almost 200 followers and people all over the place relating to me and enjoying the shit I write on a daily basis. I also have found so many blogs and amazing bloggers and I hope I get even more immersed into this wonderful world of blogging because it is honestly so fulfilling. This fall I hope for my blog to grow more and to have more time to put into it because I seriously love it and I love it even more because of you guys. So enter this giveaway and get free stuff!! YAY!

Big Love,


  1. Is it open internationally (I'm in New Zealand)

  2. I entered! Love reading your blog!

  3. Awesome. I've won ad space, and a group giveaway package with adspace, shop credit, graphic design services etc. I also won a custom piece of art but haven't recieved that yet.

  4. awesome giveaway! i hope i win... lol!

  5. congrats on the 190 followers :) this is such a cool bundle of stuff!

  6. I love give aways...any FREEBIES are always welcome!!
    I have won a tv/stereo/entertainment package at IGA (yes, before Save Easy!!) on their food label Bingo! that was pretty cool.
    Maybe my best win was at Curling Club Bingo. It was something crazy like $3000 ...the best part was, the group of friends I went with, we all agreed before we started playing, that we would share any winnings, no matter how small or how big. We often did this, and got pretty excited about 6 ladies sharing a $10 prize. but sharing $3000!! Yippeee!!!!!!!

  7. Yay!!! PRESENTS!! :) Thanks for the giveaway (even if I don't win)!

  8. Oooops! And I've never won a give-away. I've hosted, though!

  9. Great giveaway, Bailey! I've decided not to enter but just wanted to say how cool it is that you're doing it. I hope the winner really appreciates how cool this giveaway is! :)

  10. I've won two different necklaces before- and I still wear them both!

  11. Those are such WONDERFUL things for your giveaway! Love it!

    Thanks so much!

  12. You have some awesome prizes lady! I thought I had entered this giveaway before- my bad! And it's true, I've never won a giveaway!

  13. Ok, 4th time trying to post, after this I give up. At least I say I am, but how would anyone really know if I did or didnt', after all no one will see this, probably.

    1. YAY!!! It went thru :) so happy, except it's not as witty and prize winning as the first three entries

  18. Chelloooo my beautiful Bail. This is just one more way you are making the world a little bit better, daily. I hope people keep finding your blog because, giveaways or not, it's one of the best going. You are always real, always funny and always interesting. I'm not the least bit biased ;)

  19. Oooohhh...this looked really fun. I guess that's what I get for being a slacker!
