Hello all! With Thanksgiving around the corner, we wanted to do a giveaway to say thanks to all our readers who have welcomed us into the blogging community 🙂 We love being able to post our thoughts and connecting with so many people from around the world. Thank you so much!!!

I wish we could open this giveaway internationally, but since this might weigh a lot we are only doing this giveaway for US and Canadian residents. We hope to do more giveaways in the future and be able to send it anywhere in the world.

It is super easy to enter, all you have to do is make sure to follow our blog AND our instagram/twitter and leave a comment with your instagram or twitter name so we can follow back 🙂 On Friday’s post (November 21st)  I will announce a winner and email the person to send me their information. UPDATE You must comment to be entered. 

I personally chose these items as our first giveaway and these have been some of my favorites for all seasons

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge – WOW! I bought mine on a whim since my beauty blender was accidentally sent to my parents’ house, but truth be told I am in no rush to test out my BB. This sponge is amazing!! I love the flat slide to get in every nook and cranny on my face. For only $6 the quality is insane. I do feel it absorbs more water and I do need to do two pumps as opposed to one with a brush, but the end result is flawless (at least on my skin.) I knew this had to be in our giveaway because I love this thing so much, for foundation, concealer, or blush it is always used in my makeup routine.

Deluxe Mini Melted Peony – I love my Melted Lipsticks! Yes they are a tad drying on my lips afterwards, but nothing a quick exfoliation before bed can’t fix. They smell like candy and I love the pigment!! The matte finish is also amazing because they go on glossy, but dry to a beautiful matte. I think everyone needs to try a Too Faced Melted so I definitely had to include one.

E.L.F Studio Lip Exfoliator – I love my Fresh sugar scrub, but not the price, for only $3 though this E.L.F does a great job of scrubbing off my lipstick and dead skin. I just dab a little water on my lips, scrub, wipe off with a wet cotton ball, and apply chapstick. It’s so easy and smells like brown sugar. This is to help exfoliate your lips after you use your Melted Peony 🙂

Lorac Cobra Mascara– I love mascara and thanks to Sample Society for sending me two boxes this month I was able to give away this deluxe sample. I have not used it yet, but people either love or hate the brush. I made the mistake of telling my mom I got a free box so she called dibs on almost the whole second box except for the mascara and one other thing I am also adding to the giveaway in the samples.

Nars Orgasm Blush– What can I say about this blush? Almost everyone has heard of it and it is an ultimate favorite of mine. It is described as a peachy pink with shimmer and I can’t describe it better than that. I love shimmer as I have stated in my past posts and  I almost always gravitate to this blush. It was my first big purchase I made when I first started to get into makeup and it will always be in my makeup bag. You can’t top first love ❤ This is also one of Josie’s favorite blushes 🙂

I also threw in a bag that Sephora was giving away from their VIB/Rouge sale since I have way too many


I have a confession, I hoard samples like a crazy person. Every time I order online if they are offering free samples or a free goodie bag (Sephora, I am looking at you) I tend to be more apt to order, or when I go into a department store or any makeup store I always always ask for samples. Sometimes I am crazy enough to make two different purchases, one I pay for, one I make my husband pay for so I can get double the samples. I don’t use most of my samples and always give them away in my care packages to my friends, but there is some sort of thrill in getting a good selection of samples. Take Kiehl’s for example, my husband loves this store and we go there often. He owns a good amount of the products, so when we go in it’s like they know I am going to ask for samples and they give me a cute little cardboard holder filled with samples to the top. Their customer service is on point and they never say no to any sample I request. I use some of them and so does Dan when we travel, but I have so many a whole drawer is dedicated to just Keihl’s lol. Slightly sad, but my hoarding is your gain, these are just some of the samples I will be adding to the giveaway. I have more boxes coming in from Sephora so if they come in time I will be sure to add those.

I am also adding the cute red makeup bag that I got from Sephora since I ordered two
