That's 22 items (counting the bracelets as one)!! I hope you like my giveaway ladies! Now spread the word and enter!!

Rules and information:
  1. You must be a follower of my blog with Google Friend Connect.
  2. This giveaway is open internationally. I just hope that it isn't too much to send lol.
  3. All items are new and supplied/purchased by me.
  4. You can only enter by clicking the link and using the form below. Commenting will not enter you, but I do love comments so feel free to comment anyway! I would love to hear what your favorite items are!
  5. If you hate a particular item or already have one just like it, just let me know and I'll leave it out or choose a second winner. I know some of the items aren't ideal, like the CG lip colors for example. I'm so fair skinned I thought they would look awful on me, but if you're bold enough to wear them, awesome! Either way you get to try it out and see if you like that brand!
  6. This giveaway will close on March 19th and the winner will be contacted shortly thereafter through email. The winner will have 48 hours to reply through email before a new winner will be chosen.
  7. The winner will be chosen at random. I'm not sure how this form thing works yet, but I think I'll use a random number generator. It will be fair I promise!
  8. I forgot to add "add me to your blogroll" as another entry. It would be unfair to do it now since so many people have already entered. But if you like my blog, please add me to your blog roll!


  1. Sounds like a great giveaway :)

  2. Oooooh! I want to win! lol Thanks for this giveaway, Megan! <3

  3. Ok, I hope my entry was recorded! Something strange happened...

    Anyhow, if I win, you can definitely leave that chocolate out. I normally love anything minty but I bought that chocolate last summer when I was visiting the UK and I actually didn't like it at all :D

    The earrings are really cute but I actually don't wear any... I love the Orly nailpolish and the Sinful colours one, I don't have any flakies yet and I can't get that brand in my country.

    I am seriously considering buying that sheep necklace from your etsy shop. It would make a cute birthday present to my best friend, she loves anything with sheep figures.

    Great giveaway Megan!

  4. great giveaway, thanks!
    i love your etsy shop :-D

  5. OMG I didn't know that by "British chocolate" you meant Aeros! I LOVE MINT AEROS! They actually have little bite sized Aero "Bubble" balls too!

    When I send you your birthday present, I'm so sending you a Crunchie too!

  6. I'm going to have to look for Sinful Colors in Green Ocean I'd love to see it swatched please! I love flakies! <3 your etsy shop

  7. Thank you so much ladies I'm so excited!!!

    @Patricia I am wearing it right now over Color Club's Sheer Disguise (dusty light blue). I freaking love it! It's my first flaky ever! I will blog about it tomorrow. I can do some /just/ Green Ocean pics if you want.

    @Amber I freaking love Crunchies! They are my favorite English chocolate ever. That's such a hard thing to say so much is so good!! Jeremy sent me a huge pack of mini Take Out (like kit kat) bars from the Middle East and those are good. I had no idea Aero made little ball bites too! Crunchie makes some called Crunchie Clusters I think. I can only get them at the British shop here so they're like $8 a pack haha. Overpriced for sure, but awesome when you can't get it anywhere else.

  8. @Nailcrazy
    Thanks so much! It really hasn't seen much action lol.

    You don't like it :O? They do make a regular Aero you know, but not sure if I can find that one. I was blown away when I found the minty one! And you don't wear earrings either? I have like 200 pair haha. It's a fetish. I actually love that sheep necklace too haha. I got the charm years and years and years ago and finally did something cool with it. I make so many things that I just can't bear to sell lol. Most of the time they don't sell anyway so it's that way at least lol.

  9. And yes Intootje I did get your entry! I just checked for you. I always forget who people are on FB when it's different here lol.

  10. Oh don't worry, I don't like the regular Aero either :) And since I am in Europe, the shipping would be more expensive anyway so it would be just good for you to leave the Aero out (makes the package lighter). I love earrings too and I even have a lot of them but I started getting skin problems when using earrings so I stopped using them. Even when they are silver, my skin doesn't react well to them :( So now I have a lot of earrings I can't wear... I don't really know what to do with them. Some I have hardly used.

    Oh yes, I have different name here and on FB but it is the same dog in the photo :)

    I am thinking if I tasted Crunchies in the UK, not sure! I sure will taste next time :)

  11. Yay! I'm in! I think I have 2 entries, currently for e-mail, follower name and for following the fb page. Huge hugs and thanks for the opportunity, sweet pea! :)

  12. Told you I'd check out your blog. :) We talked at length yesterday when you came in my store.

    Nice variety you have in your giveaway! And for anyone that was curious, Sinful Colors Green Ocean is GORGEOUS in person. Even if it was layered over something else.

  13. Yay I love Ulta! Follow my Facebook page too if you do Facebook. I checked out your blog. If you like polish look at the promo Zoya has going on till midnight tonight only. You can find the link to it on their blog. It's the whole Intimate Collection for $25 and free shipping.

  14. Great giveaway!! Hope it's lots of fun for you!

    I'm doing my first giveaway whenever I reach 100 followers and I just grabbed the Zoya Intimate collection today to give away a couple of those polishes as a part of the 100 follower giveaway! So excited! Now I just have to sit around and wait until 100, LOL!
