100 Posts & giveaway! (CLOSED)


Hello dears!
This is actually my post number 100!!!!!!!
Can you believe that? it seems it was yesterday I started this blog and I've already posted 100 times!
Day after day this blog is a source of fun and satisfaction and I would love it to continue that way. I am so lucky to have the most wonderful followers, faithful readers, nice and sweet enough to take their valuable time to read my craziness and comment on my redoubtable ideas. I enjoy each day receiving and answering your comments! You've spoiled me now and I wait for them each day! and it is only thanks to you if I made it to my n° 100 post!

So as a way to say thank you I wanted to do my very first giveaway. I'm very excited about it, though it might not seem a big deal, I surely had fun organizing it.


The prize:
I've chosen to include items of the current limited editions of Essence Snow Jam & Vintage District.
One lucky winner will get:


- all four polishes of the Essence Snow Jam LE in:
01 Goofy-blue,
02 Lilac is my style,
03 Life is a freeride,
04 top of the icestream
- the Essence Snow Jam mini files
- the Essence Snow Jam LE 24 hours protection Balm
- the Essence Vintage district LE Nail art decoration kit in 02designer for a day
- one  Essence Vintage district LE nail polish in 04 get arty
- an Essence Vintage district LE gel liner set in 01 Shopping @ Portobello Road
This might sound more interesting for those readers who can't get Essence in their countries, but there'll be soon other great excuses for more giveaways! All the items are new (never opened) and bought by me.

The rules:
- The giveaway starts today (16th January) and it ends on February 8th 2012 at 12am
- The giveaway is opened internationally
- You need to be a follower to enter
- The more entries you get the bigger your chances to win
- Rafflecopter will give me the name of the winner randomly I will e-mail the winner and he/she will have 24 hours to answer otherwise I will pick another winner randomly. I'll announce the winner in this blog once he/she has claim his/her price.

a Rafflecopter giveaway



Love,
Nati

  3. I think it's a great idea to have a giveaway! :) I want to make one too, it would be so fun. I'll start organize one, and maybe have it on my blog anniversary or something. :)

    Of cause I want to get part of this giveaway..essence can't be found in sweden of what I know about at least.

    I must say I really like your blog and I'm glad I've found you and I especially like the way you write and formulate your reviews. Your photos are also always great. It's hard to come up with something to improve.. Maybe to add more tags, the same above called "home, the batt..., disclosure..etc". The tags to add could be makeup, nail polish so it would be easy to just scroll through all make up or all nail polish related stuff.

    I've actually been thinking of adding that my self, but nail art and nail polish at the other one etc..But then I must find a new theme! :D But I'll search for one! :D

  4. Your prize is so tempting since the products aren't yet available in my city, that's sad I know :))

    I'm so glad I've discovered your blog since it's such a nice one, it will be a pleasure to follow

That said, I also think there's always room for improvement and would really love to know what my readers think/expect! but of course in the end I will do what I think/like...

  30. I think your swatches are nice, but I prefer always the same lighting. So maybe you should always take them in direct sunlight or buy a daylight lamp if there isn't any sun. They cost around 6-7 € (Bauhaus, cold light) and you can use them with any lamp you (maybe) already have.

    The posts are clear but I miss some things like prices and other details on the nail polishes. I also noticed, that there are some photos missing from your older posts. That's kind of a shame and you should repost them, if you still have the pictures. I would love to see some of the nail art you have done again.

I love your comments!
I read all and each of them and answer as much as I can. Don't hesitate to leave one, even if it's just to say hi :)
