Thanksgiving is coming up on November 28…and it’s hard to process but there are a lot of people locally who have lost more than anyone else can imagine after Typhoon Haiyan aka Yolanda hit our country. There are many dazed and confused people and many refugees who even flocked to Manila upon arriving hadn’t bathed, eaten, or slept after losing loved ones. I thought of ways to help and relief organizations are currently overwhelmed with volunteers in many areas. Now I mentioned on Instagram that I wasn’t comfortable doing a Blog Sale, but I thought about it and I’ve come up with a way to inspire giving and reward givers in a different way that will bless their hearts DAILY, you’ll see what I have in store in a moment, we’ll use Rafflecopter again to make it simple and FAIR. First off I’d like to say this, I trust Red Cross organizations flat out simply because of their on-ground operations, international recognition, and I like that they give updates. Here are some recent updates posted on the Red Cross Philippines site so far and the work they are continuing to do. Now, here follows the sincere inspiration slash encouragement for donors.
GOOD WORKS BRACELETS GIVEAWAY/DONATION DRIVE:
Now here’s part of the inspiration, apart from giving out of the goodness of your heart I’d like to encourage you and inspire you with this positive incentive, Good Works bracelets! They’ve got positive words from start to finish, the ones I chose are real leather (but they’ve also got fake leather for vegans), are made in the US, worn by some celebrities and just completely inspiring. What better way to reward giving with good words by Good Works! The reason I chose these Good Works bracelets as a reward for giving is simply because they’re inspiring, they’re swag (in other words not “baduy”), they’re positive and you can share the warmth just by flashing your wrist, and if wrapped properly you can stack your favorite words . These bracelets are special because THEY’RE NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE IN RETAIL LOCALLY. I bought these with my own money and my supplier Ria gave me a discount as part of her donation for this donation drive effort. I will be giving away 6 of these, the 6 winners will be chosen by Rafflecopter from giveaway participants!
HOW TO DONATE/JOIN:
I’ve decided that for today’s post I’ll be doing a quick donation drive (SMS via Red Cross) and personally and thankfully reward 6 donors chosen by Rafflecopter with a gift, and all you have to do is FOLLOW the 2 STEPS in the Rafflecopter widget below . I have 6 different colors on hand including this purple one I’m wearing, choice of color will be first come serve via Rafflecopter’s sequential picks, first Rafflecopter winner gets first color choice and so on and so forth. To join you must fulfill BOTH steps listed in the Rafflecopter below. Proof of your text donation confirmation is required via email using screenshot/camera photo. The donation amount should be a minimum of Php100. No old SMS donations made and dated prior to this giveaway will be accepted, please be fair. Text RED<space>100 to 2899 (Globe) or 4143 (Smart)

Christmas came early this year and “Mother” Christmas was none other than the Global Beauty Authority lady for Benefit Cosmetics, Annie F. Danielson. This was my second time to meet her, but the first time with really short hair She brought us the “Whole Lotta Lovin’ ” Holiday Set for 2013 and a few other bits and bobs for Pushin & Poppin those lashes, primarily their world-famous They’re Real Mascara, of which I have 3 minis to giveaway! Read through the post and the giveaway details are towards the end Reminder this mascara giveaway is a quick one and ends in 3-4 days so there’s no better time to join than today! (Note: This Giveaway is Nationwide)
MY LOOT: Clockwise, Benefit They’re Real Mascara, Benefit Bad Gal Waterproof Eyeliner, Benefit Hydra Smooth Lipcolor in “Dare Me”, and the “Whole Lotta Lovin’ ” Holiday 2013 Forever Flattering Makeup Kit (available from local Benefit Cosmetics counters starting NOV. 1, 2013, for PHP2000.00).
I can safely suspect that this “Whole Lotta Lovin’ ” limited edition Holiday set by Benefit will sell out quickly once it hits counters this November I believe (will try to edit in the exact date). It’s a very wearable selection of 3 of their long wearing eyeshadows: “Nude Swings”, “It’s Complicated”, and “Kiss Me I’m Tipsy”, 1 Creaseless Cream shadow in “No Pressure” (like a deeper version of “RSVP”), Benefit Boing concealer in 02 & their best selling sculpting blush, Benefit Hoola. You also get 2 nifty brushes for application.
Now here’s the giveaway part, I’m going to choose 3 winners to win these adorable baby size versions of Benefit’s bestselling They’re Real Mascara! Aren’t they cuuuuuute…
What Annie told me to tell you guys is what’s cool is that you’re getting a travel size tube BUT with the full size wand. What peeves her about travel versions of other mascaras is the downsizing of the wands which changes everything during application. Here you get the original wand that gives you those longer, bigger lashes just as the full size product would, but in a more portable tube. To join the giveaway just follow the 5 mandatory steps in the Rafflecopter widget below a Rafflecopter giveaway
This is going to be my first multi-brand makeup and skincare giveaway that involves the use of Instagram! Check out that “Bless This Bag” travel tag, who would’ve thought I’d spot something like that at True Value? LOL
This toiletry bag splits open with 2 compartments for makeup and skincare. It’s jam-packed with lots of great travel-size & full size products that make getting away without looking astray much, much simpler. I don’t know bout you guys but for me the Pièce de résistance of this whole giveaway is the “Belle” hand mirror I picked out from Singapore (of course I have one of my own, I bought 2).
It feels weight-y though the balance is a little bit off center (more on top less on the handle) but who cares, it’s heavy enough to not feel like a prop, small enough to slip into a handbag and it’s so elaborately made, I love it.
