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.
For this Holiday season, Zoeva has come out with the Plaisir box. What it is? A luxury gift box containing 3 eyeshadow palettes, two of which are brand new to their line. Inspired by chocolate, you can find a white, milk and dark chocolate inspired eyeshadow palette in this boxed set. Zoeva themselves call it ‘an ode to the fine art of confectionary’ and I think that is an apt way of describing these palettes. I already love me some Zoeva palettes, which is why I included a little surprise for you at the end of this blog post.

A few weeks ago I was contacted by some fellow Dutch beautybloggers whether I wanted to participate in a bloghop to celebrate National Beautybloggers’ Day. I thought it was a pretty neat idea and decided to hop on the bandwagon. The purpose of today’s post is to introduce you to as many different bloggers as possible. To entice you even further, each blogger will have a small give away on their blog. So click on through if you want to win a price and find out more about the giveaway!
Please note: This celebration is mostly for Dutch blogs,
so most of the posts I’ll be linking to will be in Dutch.
Apologies if you’re from elsewhere on the globe,
but this will be a Dutch only party.
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:
- Follow this blog, either via e-mail or Bloglovin’. You can find links to both ways in the sidebar on the right. Please inform me of your username, so I know who you are.

It’s time, time to give back! To celebrate my 4th blogaversary, I’ve decided to set up a giveaway. It’s the simplest one ever so I hope you choose to enter and you can win not one, but two prizes.
Let’s first start off with the prizes: you can win this MAC lipstick in Pink Plaid. This lipstick is a matte lipstick and one of my favorite MAC lipsticks. It’s a great neutral, goes with many skintones and has great staying power. It is a blue toned pink, fully matte, but because of the undertone not boring and not prone to giving you the look of death. It is my go to color when wearing smokey eyes or any dark eye make up and it goes with everything. Not convinced, here are some swatches…
… and you can see the lipstick on me here, here, and here. Of course the lipstick you’ll be receiving is brand new and unswatched. I only opened it up for the first picture you see in this blog post. So no worries.
In addition to the lipstick you will also receive a 10 pound ASOS giftcard, which will be sent to you in a separate email. I chose to go with ASOS as it has free international shipping and contains both fashion and beauty bits. And I thought it would be nice to add something so you could pick something yourself. Of course, if you’re the winner, I’d love to see what you decide to purchase.
What do you have to do to win the MAC lipstick & an ASOS giftcard?
- Leave a comment below and include your email address. In the comment, please provide at least one video idea you’d be interested in seeing me do.
- Follow me on bloglovin’. (Please indicate this in your comment, and state who you are on bloglovin’).
- Tweet about the giveaway. Leave the link to your tweet in your comment. You can copy this text: I entered to win a MAC Pinkplaid lipstick! Check @floatingindreams.com on how to enter.
You have until Thursday September 25th, 3PM CET to enter and all 3 steps must be met. The giveaway is open internationally, but please bear in mind that I cannot be held responsible in case the package is lost or damaged during shipment. There is one (1) winner for both prizes. To select a winner, I will use Random.org. The winner will receive an email within 24 hours of the giveaway deadline and is expected to reply by sending an email within 48 hours. If the winner does not respond on time, I will contact the runner up.

Yesterday the giveaway to celebrate my 500th blogpost ended and so today it is time to announce the winner. And here’s a screen shot:
Please contact me on email@example.com and leave me your home address so I can send this out to you as soon as possible!
Thanks to everyone who entered!
Someone very rightly pointed out to me that you need a WordPress account to like posts. I wasn’t aware of this, so to make your lives easier I have decided to update the rules for the giveaway which I posted a few days ago. I will ALSO extend the deadline to make up for the lost days.
The rules are now as follows:
- Leave a comment saying you would like to enter and tell me what you like reading on my blog. Any feedback really: what would you like to see more of, what do you think I could do without. Just make it constructive so I have something to work with for the next 500 posts .
- Spread the word by tweeting/ facebooking/ etc. this post and add the link to the comment you’ll be leaving.
The deadline for entering has been changed to Sunday March 11th 5 PM CET. The contest is open internationally and anyone can participate. I will pick the winner using random.org and will announce it on Monday the 12th of March.
