Birthday Blog Look ft. Awesome People

20 comments:
 

Happy Birthday to Me! I'm 24 years young today, and to celebrate I did a look inspired by my pink and purple blog layout (click picks to enlarge) as my blog is also celebrating it's one month birthday tomorrow! For this uber girly look I stuck almost exclusively to the CS Ultra Shimmer palette which I've kind of rediscovered lately. There are so many pretty colors in there it's hard to choose just a few. Anyways. I really like it and I'm going to keep it on and wear it out tonight for dinner/drinks/dancing with friends. I mean, when else can you rock turbo-purple eyeshadow for no reason if not on your birthday? But enough about me! I was fortunate enough to receive a number of awards from fellow bloggers in the past few days, and I was also lucky enough to win a giveaway so I want to give credit where credit is due and say thank you so here goes!

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________



Thank you to Lisa from All Things Lisa who had an ELF eyelash giveaway recently and I won! I'm so stoked, I've never won anything before so this is really exciting and a perfect unintentional birthday present. I have zero falsies in my stash at the moment and no money to get any more so thank you thank you thank you. Her blog is really fun and she's doing another giveaway soon when she reaches 100 readers so check her out if you haven't already.
I would also like to thank Widdlesh of FACE:PAINT for being the first blogger/person ever to give me an award. My blog and I both thank you. She is an incredibly talented makeup artist whos work I have admired for a while over at MakeupBee.com. (If you're not on there already, you should be!) She's always turning out super colorful eye and lip looks and I can't wait to copy cat some of them!

Thank you also to the incredibly talented Kassie of Unique-Desire. She was also kind enough to tag me for a blogger award so I wanted to return the love. I think hers was one of the first blogs I ever followed and it remains one of my favorite to check. I highly recommend her Sailor Moon series of looks if you haven't already seen them. So friggin pretty.

My next thank you/shout out goes to Ronnie of Bows & Curtseys. Ronnie also tagged me with a stylish blogger award and I couldn't be more flattered. Hers is a fairly new blog but I love all her looks and shes another one of my favorite bloggers to follow. She's got a Seven Deadly Sins series coming up that I'm already looking forward to so if you're not following her, you should be, more people need to see her awesome looks.

And FINALLY, my very last thank you goes out to my amazing boyfriend Barrie who bought me the Sephora Hero Train Case for my birthday and hid a 50 dollar gift certificate inside. He saved up for so long to get me this because he knew I wanted it but couldn't afford it. It was so sweet of him and I absolutely cannot WAIT to fill it up with all kinds of goodies and tote it around with my wherever I go. I LOVE it. LOVE IT. LOVE IT! So, on that note my amazing readers (if you're still reading by now, lol) I have a question for you ....
What would you spend your $50.00 gift certificate on??
I need suggestions/recommendations!!

  11. Happy Birthday, lovely! 24 years and looking fab <3 I'm so excited for you to celebrate, be sure to post some photos!

    OMGOSH! He got the case for you! I've been looking at that forever and I'm so happy that you now have it! Let us know how the usability and organization goes :) And $50 at Sephora, ooh.. I'd definitely recommend the Makeupforever's Aqua Liner. The waterproof quality is amazing and they've been selling out like crazy. In fact, there's a waitlist here in Hawaii! But the pigments are so worth it and you won't be disappointed.

    Have fun celebrating, my dear. Again - so happy for you! Yay! *Big hug*
