My answer for DoeDeere’s Blogazine giveaway

Doe Deere, founder, redhead model, and creator of Lime Crime makeup is having a goodie giveaway on her Blogazine !Β  It’s the first time I’ve ever been given a chance to join one since August 19 is the last day for answering her giveaway question for us:

“What makes you, You?”

I took the time to post my answer in her comments thread beneath the giveaway article.Β  My answer was as sincere as I could make it.Β  A bit deep probably, but then a well always is πŸ™‚Β  I wanted to share my answer to the question with you:

“Dear DoeDeere,

I think inside of me or any person hides an unresolved conundrum, a bottomless well of wonder that takes long past a lifetime to reach the bottom of. It’s this unresolved, unreachable part that makes me me. If someone says they’ve gotten who I am exactly that only means they’ve stopped going deeper but they simply appreciate and accept (love) most of what they already know good or bad. No mortal being has a chain long enough.

Down the well of my soul the walls are lined on one side with the portraits of the people in my life smiling, talking and laughing and an endless quilt of memories and artwork stitched together hangs on the other till the bottom. The stones that line the well are carved with things I’ve said. The words glow dimly in serifed letters embossed on the stone, both the good and bad. My biggest hopes are candles at the very bottom that rest on the lily pads of faith. They light up the well ever so gently and steadily. I am what I choose to be, a vessel of beauty, fun, love, and purity. My Maker is the bucket. You might think β€œWhy the bucket of all things?” He is the only one with a chain strong enough and long enough to go all the way to the bottom and reach the very unresolved substance of my soul and carry me to the very top.

Happy Birthday to your Blogazine. You are an inspiration πŸ™‚ “

I really hope and pray that I win the giveaway, Lord, please bless my bag once more…Amen.… To full post & COMMENTS...

My Lanolips Prize, New shade Rhubarb Plus 101

 It’s finally here!  I can hardly get over the feeling of actually winning something beauty-related and being able to tell you about it!

My prize came swaddled in baby pink Lanolips wrapping, tied off with a ribbon, and inside…

were my 2 prizes and  a letter congratulating me, signed by Lady Lamb ^v^

Tada!  Lanolips‘ newly launched shade Rhubarb and their top colorless lip ointment Lanolips 101.  Pure medical grade lanolin makes my day.  It took awhile to get here.  Usually things from Australia always take much longer to receive in the post.  Lanolips Rhubarb was a lip hue inspired by the owner’s Grandma who used to often bake Rhubarb pie for them on the farm.  How sweet is that? ^v^  Here’s a quick swatch for you.  Rhubarb is a pretty coral shade with a tiny, tiny hint of gold shimmer shot through it.  You’ll hardly notice unless you look really, really close.  It can also be used as a really cute cheek tint.  I tried it on yesterday.

Once more, this was the winning entry that brought home the goods ^v^ :

Dearest Lady Lamb,

I have a beauty problem that perhaps someone as pretty as you can help me with. I adore your kissable lips but just can’t seem to keep my own as healthy in a frequently air-conditioned environment at work, where I work 18 or sometimes up to 20 hours a day on some occasions as a visual effects compositor/animator. My boyfriend is also in the same department so I like to keep myself pretty and fresh even under pressure.

I have all my beauty essentials and toiletries on hand, because sometimes we stay over at work due to intense projects, and under stress my lips always chap, flake, and bleed. I refrain from putting other products on once my lips have been wounded, because I don’t know if they will help heal them or infect them.

But Lo and behold I go online and see your pretty face, with those Garbo-esque eyes and perfect lips and I think you’ve got something more for me, something I’ve been needing all these years that is not available in this faraway land.

Please help me, Lady Lamb. Send me your not-so-secret secret, and I will be forever grateful.

Smoochingly sincere,

julia
