Lately, I’ve been feeling very blessed and at peace with my life. Moments like these need to be shared, so I decided to share my blessings. I recently reached 500 followers on IG, a big number for me, so I wanted to express my gratitude to people I have met and befriended. Since I write a beauty blog, it made sense to bless someone with a beauty product. (Frivolous, yes I know, but my blessings my decision to share as I choose).
I called it a “secret” giveaway because I didn’t announce that I was going to do this before hand nor make folks jump through hoops to be entered. I wanted to thank people who where already following, and not people who jump on the bandwagon as either scammers and/or giveaway queens who unfollow the minute a giveaway is over. I truly wanted to share my gratitude with folks who have been there all along. I also contacted the winner (selected using Random.org) directly prior to posting about it, to avoid the scammers. It’s a dubious world out there.
I hope she enjoys her gift. I will probably do something similar on youtube as my numbers grow there as well so watch the videos and subscribe – you might get lucky. I’m currently editing a video with swatches of the Vegas_Nay 4 Too Faced Stardust palette. I’ll wrap up with two of my favourite quotes:
The grateful mind is constantly fixed on the best; it takes the form or shape of the best, and will receive the best. The grateful mind continually expects good things. – Wallace D. Wattles
The first step in receiving is giving. It is through the law of giving and receiving that you demonstrate prosperity. If you are not receiving as much good as you feel you should have in life, ask yourself, “What should I give?”– Catherine Ponder
