#200 and Par-Tay Giveaway

Wow, holy 200th post people!

I seriously can’t believe I have posted 200 times on this lil blog here. Who knew?

When I started this blog 51 weeks ago, I had no idea that I would end up looking forward to putting down my thoughts and reading about what everyone else had to say each day.

In the past 350-something days, I have “met” so many amazing people and heard so many incredible stories. I can’t speak highly enough about the fabulous blogs I read daily (but if you want to see some of them check out the bottom of my sidebar).

On this day of my 200th post (and just a few days till my bloggy birthday) I want to say THANK YOU to everyone for stopping by. Every time I see a comment from any of you it makes me smile and totally brightens my day. Thank you.

And how awesome that there's a little party going on right now...

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Have you seen the amazing blogs over there? If you have a good 4 or 7 hours to waste, definitely head over there! So many awesome bloggers...

And to say thanks just a little bit more, I have a lovely little giveaway for anyone and everyone to enter.

The prize:
$10 Starbucks Gift Card
$25 TJ Maxx Gift Card

You may do any of the following for 1 entry each. Entries are due by Sunday, March 29th at midnight.
  • Leave a comment here telling me your favorite beauty, fashion, or cosmetic item for 1 entry. Simply say "I love ________, can't live without it" etc.
  • For 2 entries, go over to Chic Critique and leave a comment on my post about Bronzer. No need to comment back here.
  • Tweet about my givaway and leave me a comment here with link to it for 2 entries.
  • Subscribe to this blog using the Feedburner button on the right and leave a comment about it for 2 entries.
  • Become a follower of this blog using the box in the sidebar and leave a comment here for 2 entries. (Current followers already have 2 entries each).
  • Mention the contest on in a post on your blog and leave a comment here with the link for 3 entries.

Isn't that a great way to start the week? I certainly think so.

Happy Monday!!

Happy 200th post! I love your blog.

I love my MAC Studio Fix compact, I cannot live without it...seriously!

Natalie said...

happy bloggy birthday!

favorite beauty product...i have no idea. i rarely use the same thing twice! i am going to try some of the things listed here though! bare minerals foundation and the aveda for not quite curly but never straight hair. both sound intriguing. one of the only things i use consistently is secret deodorant and i even had to come up with another kind while i was living in turkey. maybe that's my problem...i've lived away for so long that i haven't gotten back into the habit of a consistent american product.

My fave beauty product? Bronzer! It's nothing revolutionary, but it jazzes up my skin like nothing else. For bronzer with shimmer, I love Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips ( I have the Waikiki Strip) and for matte bronzer (when I just want the additional color but no sparkle) I love Smashbox Bronze Lights in Suntan Matte. Here's to 200 more posts.

PS, I also subscribed to your blog in my RSS feed!

I love my Spray Tanner . Congratulations on your post anniversary. Will be back soon for a longer visit.

Though I am relativity new to blogging, I am loving all my new friends.

I am giving away my first EVER BLOG PRIZE.
I own a gift basket business and it is the most requested gift over the last 15 years.

From the comments I have already received, appears to be something a little different and something anyone could use. I have been so touched by the comments that I have decided to give 2 boxes . They will be the $100 deluxe size.

I really do want to bless people!!! I want my blog to encourage others. I have decided that giving is life at its BEST. The drawing will be Saturday!
