Thank You For the Music

Why howdy there, reader

I hope you are doing well this Monday morning. Lots of stuff has happened in the past couple months. Most of them were good, some not so desirable. But that's just how the cinnamon rolls, right? Within the past few weeks, I've dug myself out of the unemployment funk that I'd been having for a while and got myself a job that, even though I don't enjoy, gives me something to occupy my time with. I am, at the moment, moving towards remedying my displeasure by making items for my etsy shop that will hopefully be opened by the end of the week! I've redesigned my blog layout, and every time I visit it, I get so giddy with joy seeing the birds and bright colors and my new header. I've partnered up with a couple of shops and even had a giveaway sponsored by one of them. I've also hit 200+ followers between GFC, Bloglovin, Twitter, and Facebook. Most importantly, I've connected with new people in the wonderful world of blogging and have fostered friendships with a lot of my amazing readers.

Because I am so thankful for all the lovely things that have happened lately, I want to share my happiness with you, my faithful readers, in form of a giveaway! Last week, I asked on twitter what you would much rather have: makeup or hello kitty? Since I only got 2 responses, and both of them were different, I decided to get Hello Kitty AND makeup! So you can look pretty and cute at the same time!

This giveaway is for the Too Faced Glamour to Go Palette that includes 8 eyeshadow shades, 2 blushes, and a lipgloss all in a tight, compact, and convenient package. I am a huge fan of Too Faced cosmetics and really love all their makeup. I am so sure that you will love their silky, pigmented shades. I'm also throwing in a small tube of Shadow Insurance,  an eye primer that I really can't get enough of. To add even more cuteness to the mix, I'm including a Hello Kitty Compact Mirror, Hello Kitty keychain, and a Zashikibuta pin. 

I hand-picked all these items, thinking about what I like and what I would like my readers to have.

  19. Laura, this is so cool. I love how you say "just how the cinnamon rolls". I have got to remember that one. I LOVE your new layout chicadee. It's truly awesome! Everything is perfect. Love it! Congratulations on the job. Just know it may not be where you want to be, but you never know where it leads. I truly believe everything happens for a reason. Sometimes we don't understand and may ask why, but trust me later on in life it will all make sense. Enjoy where you are, but always SEEK further. ((HUG)) Congratulations on your followers. This is not hard to believe, because you write wonderful posts that are identifiable. People can relate to you. Your blog will attract even more. And what a wonderful giveaway! I love Hello Kitty! And you've put together some great products. Hope you have a great evening!
