It has been ages since I last did a giveaway. I don’t do them too often, but I think it is time to give back. And for two reasons! On 4 September 2018, this blog, this little nook on the WWW came up on its 8th anniversary. 8 years! As if things could not get any better, I hit 1000 subscribers on Youtube last Saturday. So I felt it was time to organize a little giveaway to give back to all of you who have embarked on this journey with me and who are commenting regularly on my posts and videos.
Step right up! Step right up! I have some exciting news for you. Well, I think it is exciting news, but I hope you do too. Since it is summer and since I love eyeshadow palettes, I thought I would combine those two and devote all of the month of August to eyeshadow palettes. All of the content going up this month will be eyeshadow palette related. Which means: every day will feature a review or a video on eyeshadow palettes. I know I am excited, I hope you are excited too!
August Palette Month
Dear readers, followers & regular commenters,
Today’s message is just to let you know that today and for the rest of 2017, I will not be writing any more blog posts or be putting up anymore videos. I’ve decided to take a little break until the new year. So as of today, until December 31st no new content will be going up.
But I of course could not leave you without thanking you for all your lovely comments, the many likes and all the new followers I gained in 2017. Here’s to much more new content to come in 2018! I will be back 1 January 2018 with a brand new blog post.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.
Today’s blog post is a quicky to let you know that today will be a little quiet on here and on Youtube. I have not been able to upload a video this weekend because of several reasons. That’s why I figured I would come here and give you a quick update instead.
I’m a day late, but that doesn’t mean there is less of a reason to party. By now this little space on the WWW has been around for 7 whole years. 7 years! If you’d told me seven years ago, this blog would still be around and I would still be doing this and enjoying it, I’d have probably told you, you were nuts. Because what started as a fun experiment because I missed writing, became so much more. This post will take a look back and a look forward when it comes to the past, present and future of this blog.
Happy Birthday Floating in Dreams
A lovely follower of mine, who blogs over on Charmed Wench, left a comment on my blog recently to inform me she had nominated me for The Real Neat Blog Award. I was happy to see her comment and thought I would answer the questions and nominate a few bloggers of my own.
Real Neat Blog Award
To celebrate the fact that my blog turned 5 the other day, I thought I’d do a give away. This morning you could read a review of the twin sister of this product: it is the US drugstore palette L’Oreal La Palette Nude 1.
Did you really think that I would go shopping in the US and not bring back something for you to win? If you saw my massive US beauty haul you might have already spotted this among the madness. I purchased both L’Oreal La Palette Nude 1 and 2, but I already knew when I did, that I would be using no. 1 for a giveaway.
This palette features 10 neutral shades. Some people compare this to a mixture of Urban Decay Naked 1 and 2. And it does mimic that vibe. Since I already own both, I find this a bit superfluous to add to my own collection, but I figured that many other people might like a good quality eye shadow palette that has great pigmentation. That is, if this has shadows as great as its sister which I reviewed this morning. Since I didn’t swatch or use this palette, I cannot guarantee that it is as good, but looking at swatches online, I think it’s safe to say that the quality is similar to the no. 2 palette.
I snapped some pictures to show you what this palette looked like and also to see if any of these shadows survived being dragged halfway across the world. It is otherwise untouched and kept safe and sound in a smoke free environment. It will be send to you via snail mail and shipping is at your own risk. I will package it as well as possible, but I cannot be held accountable if this doesn’t reach you intact and undamaged.
Here’s what you have to do to win:

Your entry will only count if you fulfill steps 1 AND 2, step 3 is optional. I will contact the winner via e-mail within 24 hours after the giveaway deadline, so leave a valid e-mail address when you leave your comment, else your entry will not count.
