Happy 2nd Birthday to my blog + giveaway

Wooohoo! Yep it’s been 2 years. Two years since I decided to start this blog on a dreary September evening. At the time I didn’t even know how long it would last. I didn’t know what to write about or what I wanted my posts to look like or to be about. I just started writing about those things I love most in life: music, shopping, nail polish, make up, clothes, my job, language, movies, books and anything else I came across that I wanted to share. And that’s what I’ve been doing ever since.

I try to switch it up as much as I can, with something different to write about on a daily basis. It means this blog has no focus, no theme, or you should consider myself a theme. I like that. I don’t want this to be a beauty blog. I don’t want it to be a music blog. I don’t want it to be a fashion blog. I don’t want it to be a language blog. Because I don’t have one interest that sparks up above all others. I go through phases with a few constants (the main ones being nail polish and music) and so you will find more posts on language one month, and the other it’s more about shoplogs. I just take it as it goes.

Daily posts are my goal, but I don’t always manage. Life simply gets in the way sometimes. With my new job it still remains to be seen how much I can keep up my daily schedule. It will be interesting to see how that will work out. Regardless of all that, it’s always nice to see people commenting on posts, subscribing to my page or to see how many people have read my post for the day. And that is why I thought we’d celebrate 2 years of Floating in Dreams together! Scroll down to found out more!

To celebrate 2 years of Floating in Dreams I am not getting my own domain, nor am I trying to branch out. It’s a hobby and that’s what I want it to be and what it should remain. I would hate having to put advertorials up here to try and make a living. I feel those endeavors would always stand in the way of my freedom of writing. So no can do. Instead, I thought it would be fun to have a small giveaway.

All you have to do to participate is the following:

1. Follow my blog. (See the bar on the right hand side. There’s a button at the bottom that will let you subscribe.)

2. Leave a comment below saying you will take part in the giveaway.

3. Share this post on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, your blog, wherever and leave proof of this (a link to the post will do) in your comment.

4. Make sure you list your email address in the designated field when leaving a comment. No email address = no prize.

That’s it. Now… for the prize… This is what you can win:

The winner will be selected using Random.org and will receive the following:

1x Wet ‘N’ Wild Color Icon eyeshadow palette in Petal Pusher

1x Physicians Formula Happy Booster in Natural

You have one (1) week to enter. Closing date is Monday 10th of September 6 PM. The contest is open internationally. I will not be responsible for any lost packages. I will e-mail the winner. You’ll have 24 hours to reply to my e-mail. If you don’t reply within the given time, I will email the next person on the list.

If you wish to see more pictures and swatches of these two products than please click here and read my post on US drugstore make up. The items in the picture above are brand new and sealed and have never been used or swatched.

Happy contesting and here’s to another year!

  1. Gefeliciteerd!! Echt respect dat je al twee jaar lang volhoudt om zo’n beetje iedere te posten. Bij mij lukt max 3 per week en ik weet hoeveel werk er in een post kan zitten. Ik lees je blog altijd met veel plezier en ook al heeft niet iedere post mijn interesse, blijf ik toch terugkomen! Je blogs lezen, ondanks dat het in het engels is, lekker weg. Keep up the good work 🙂

  2. Congratulations on the 2 years! I am at 240ish posts so far without missing a day… but I am looking forward to day 366 when I can deliberately skip a day. I am very routine orientated so if I don’t skip that day, I might have to go on for another 365 posts straight. 🙂
