Gift card giveaway for reaching 100 (+) followers

Quick reminder about the Sephora/etsy gift card giveaway for reaching 100 (+) followers. It is open internationally so anyone could snag some nice etsy treats even if Sephora is not local to you!


I seem to have reached (and indeed passed) the magic milestone of 100 wordpress followers and *ahem* missed it.

It seems the tradition for a 100 follower celebration is a rafflecopter giveaway and I have gone with the tradition. I have self sponsored this through my app My Makeup Collection. I am offering a prize of either a $50 Sephora voucher or a $50 etsy voucher for the winner. I hope you enjoy and purchase something a bit fab if you win 😉

Free nail polish anyone?

Some old colleagues of mine are working on a new app in the beauty space and are looking for some soft testers. In exchange for looking through the app in test flight and after providing some feedback testers will get a $10 gift certificate for sephora or Harlow and Co. You’ll also get a prerelease copy of the app to review on your blog or just personally.

You don’t need to be IT savvy at all, just be a makeup enthusiast with an apple device. Android app will be coming up later in the year and will have a similar deal open and I’ll let you know closer to the time. It’s open globally as they need testers from all markets.

I am planning on doing it and will be looking at getting dementors kiss (!). If you are interested in either being a tester, or just getting some more info email 174east@iinet.net.au with the subject line “App tester”.

Black and Gold, Black and Gold (Nubar tape manicure)

This is a simple tape manicure using Black Chrome and Unpredictable Taupe both by Nubar.Image

Unpredictable Taupe is a fun colour, kind of a gold duochrome that looks white gold, rose gold or yellow gold depending on the light.

I like to mix up the direction on a tape mani – while the standard diagonals/chevrons are cute they can look a little star trek uniform sometimes. Mixing up the lines breaks that up and makes it a little more funky.

Hey – so only 3.5 day until my giveaway finishes. Enter here by commenting on that post. Then come back and listen to Sam Sparro. Black and Gold, Black and Gold, Black and Gold 🙂

Giveaway – Witchery Earrings + eyeshadow pallette

I got one of my semi-regular emails from Witchery with a surprise yesterday. You see Witchery is one of my favourite stores, and the cause of much overflowing in the shoes and wardrobe department. They have built up a lovely brand, very light and modern. I think they only have Australia/New Zealand/Singapore stores at the moment so might not be a name that UK/US reader know that well. The Witchery clothes include lots of lovely silk shirts and dresses which are my (credit card) kryptonite. The stores just feel relaxing to me. Anyway the email announced that I had some reward dollars to spend that would be expiring in a week. I was left in two minds as to whether I could spend these dollars during no spend time. It was not ‘real’ money, and yet part of my issue is also having less stuff and decluttering.

So my compromise position is that I ‘bought’ some goodies to give away to a reader. It’s some little earrings with Dream engraved and an eyeshadow pallette in Mulberry. To enter leave a comment below telling me what your dream is, and you can make that either a largescale “Win a nobel peace prize and buy a mansion” dream or more of a “Last night I dreamt I was a giraffe” style of dream.

You’ll get an extra entry if you are a follower. And it’s open internationally. I’ll randomnly select a winner on the 6th.
