Sweet Saturday to Make-up for Missing Fun Friday!

Here are this week's giveaways! I originally intended to get this out every Friday, but I got busy with work and wasn't able to get this post out on time. So, I'm calling it 'Sweet Saturday' today :)

Check out these awesome ladies...

1. Haute Lacquer Follower Appreciation Giveaway Extravaganza! - Deadline 7/31/2011
Just found Shaina's Extravaganza. She's already given out some awesome gifts this past month but the grand prize is still up for grabs until tomorrow. So, rush on over to her blog for the rules and participate before it is too late! In celebration of her 400 Blog Followers, she is giving a huge batch of nail art supplies which include polishes from Barielle, Zoya, KleanColor, Revlon, NYX & Ulta.

Fun Friday Giveaways!

It's Friday! There are some generous ladies out there hosting some awesome giveaways. They all offer easy rules and fantastic, more than generous prizes...I'm giving them a quick shout out here - so please visit their sites/blog and see if their content fits your interests as well. Have fun :)

Vanessa does such beautiful makeup looks and also dabbles in nail designs. My favorite is her eye makeup. Her color combinations are so amazing & hypnotic. Take a peek at her blog and see for yourself. Details to her giveaway can also be found there.

A Lil Bit of This and That

Christina provides such fantastic info on incredible makeup deals, ideas on Konad stamping nail art as well as on product reviews. At times, she will even share some of her fave recipes. I love that she shares her experiences on products as it helps me make better choices when I go shopping for the same items. She is also hosting a giveaway, so check out her blog for the 411 :)

Ocean just turned 1 year old on her YouTube Channel and is now celebrating it with a giveaway. On her channel, she features such incredible Make-up Face Art looks plus an occasional review and/or DIY projects. She is so talented that I get excited to see what she comes up with next on her videos. LOL! Preview her channel and see for yourself -- below is the link to her giveaway video.

On Fridays, I will try to feature more awesome ladies who take the time & energy to host these type of giveaways for their subscribers & followers. Having recently done my first contest/giveaway, I found greater admiration and empathy for others who host these gestures of appreciation. :) So much time, effort and money goes into hosting even the smallest of giveaways, that they deserve so much more for their generosity.
