And the winner of the giveaway is…

Hi guys, the day has finally arrived when I will declare the winner of my Valentine’s Day Giveaway. I had reached 100 subscribers when the giveaway was announced, but now we are more than 300! I am extremely grateful for all the support and encouragement and extend my thanks to all those who participated in the giveaway.

I drew chits to come up with the winner from among all the participants, and the name that I pulled out was…Chetna Tripathi!

Congrats

Chetna has a wonderful blog of her own where she talks about insightful topics pertaining to beauty and health, do check it out here. She has won a Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in the shade 109 and a Maybelline New York Color Sensational Diamonds Eyeshadow in the shade Topaz Gold. Hopefully, the products will reach her within a couple of weeks and she will like them ๐Ÿ™‚

As for the rest of you, another giveaway will be announced soon, so do keep visiting the blog.

XoXo,

First 100 Subscribers, Valentine’s Day and Giveaway Possibilities

It has been less than a month since I created this blog and yesterday I hit 100 subscribers, just in time for Valentine’s Day. I love the wonderful community of fellow bloggers that have stopped by to appreciate and encourage me in the first leg of my journey. The best part is that I had not known any of you before I started this blog, so basically, I made 100 new friends. I want to thank each one of you with all my heart.

The spirit of love is in the air, thanks to the occasion of Valentine’s Day. Even though some of you may not believe in the concept of this day, but I take it as a reminder to spare some time to think about all those who play a crucial role in my life. This is a wonderful opportunity and excuse to put your thoughts into words and express your love for those who matter. They may already know that you care but a little reaffirmation does go a long way!

Extending the same to this blog, I would like to express my love by arranging a giveaway. I am not sure about the details yet, perhaps I will keep it open till I reach 500 (or 300) subscribers or maybe I will announce the winner on my birthday next month. I am not even sure about the prize yet, but it will either be some lip products or eye products or both. Since it is my first giveaway there will be only one winner and only those living in India or having an Indian address will be eligible (I am really sorry that this one is not international but I promise that the second one will be international for sure!).
