Sweet Summer Retweet Blog Anniversary Giveaway – BlessMyBag turns 2 on March 25!

My, my we’ve got lots of giveaways happening this year.  Make way for another one then, my Summer Retweet NATIONWIDE Giveaway (hehe, get it…retreat/retweet, *cough).  This coming March 25 it will be BlessMyBag’s 2nd Anniversary since my first Lanolips Review in 2010 which was even still on Blogger at the time.  Wow, it’s still pretty hard to believe the blog has come this far from whence it came.  God is truly awesome since the blog is my baby as a professional makeup artist who officially does TV Commercial shoots now.  I’d also like to do this as a thank you to all my lovely readers without whom the blog would not be where it is today.

ROW 1 (L-R):Max Factor Age Elixir (4) samples (Natural 50, Beige 55), Lip Ice Flavored Lip Balms w SPF (Grape Blackcurrant, Apple, and Lemon), Etude House Foundation Brush and Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation sample NEW and boxed (shade Champagne – medium fair, one shade dark for me)

ROW 2 (L-R):White Tea Aloe Shampoo & Conditoner (Westin Hotel Malaysia), A’postrophe Tweezer and Nail Clipper, Haus of Gloi Eggnoggin Bubbling Scrub and Parkin Pumpkin Butter (Expiry in bout 1 year, I opened them to check they still smell awesome)

  • Joan

    the only makeup blog I keep reading! @patweetumz

  • I want to say that ever since I read your concealer series, I was hooked on blessmybag. I’m glad that this blog has the perfect balance of entries on stuff you bought vs. stuff sent to you for free. Sometimes, my reader gets flooded with simultaneous reviews of the same products or stories of the same events. It’s refreshing to see someone who has something else to say. I notice, blessmybag seems to be one of the first ones I click.

    Anyway, I’m not joining the contest, coz I’m still in decluttering-mode. Even then, I just want to leave a comment on why I like this blog.


    Hi, I’m joining again. Count me in! Thanks for sharing your thoughts about everything. Looking forward for more posts & giveaways. @mhoie1325

  • Lea

  • Valerie Mae Basinillo

    i like this blog because you’re not biased with he products you use. you’re real and funny! 😀 @donnamuch

  • First,I got intrigued upon seeing your face. And wondering how such a lady with glasses
    can wear perfect makeup and look gorgeous,no kidding. I also wear glasses since my younger years and wearing contacts were not on top of my list but i also want to look my best despite that. And since then,I got hooked on what you post.

  • Ooops.. Forgot this: @BabyKodie

  • kat

    Happy second anniversary! Honestly, I love the no-frills look as well as the no-BS product reviews. I like how the products being featured cater to different women’s wants and needs, whatever your budget may be. I find myself using your pictures as a reference to products that I plan to get. Seriously, keep up the good work!

  • kat

    I like this blog because you feature products that are not the usual, i.e. not the usual stuff provided by PR companies which other bloggers seem to feature almost simultaneously. i discovered lipglossiping and lisa eldridge here too– for which I will be forever grateful!
