My First Giveaway! =)

EDIT!
Please take note that after some feedback, I have since added a entry form for the giveaway!
My apologies for this oversight. Blur me didn't realise that you could be following privately!
*shame-faced*




YAY!
My very 1st Giveaway in anticipation of the 100th post =)

I realised that I have quite a number of non-Singapore followers
so I thought to give away some stuff that I can find here but may not be so readily available for those non-S'pore readers =)

Just one very simple rule.
1st, you'll have to be a follower of my blog.
I'm really honoured that you guys take the time out to read the stuff that I write about so I'll really like to take this opportunity to present you a token of my appreciation =)
I will do a random draw and will announce the winner in the 100th post =)
(And just in case you're wondering, this in post #97)

So here are the prizes that are up for grabs.
A set of 5 Sasatinnie nail polishes including 3 flakies,
2 nail polishes from Etude House,
A facial sheet mask from Etude House,
1 ibd 5 seconds nail glue,
and 1 packet of purple metal beads for nail art.
All brand new.

I know its not much, but its my little token of appreciation to you guys =)

Close-up of the flakies.
There's a bluish-purple one, then a dark purple one as well as a copper-brown one.
(Sorry guys, no codes no names so that's the best way I could describe to you)

This pic doesn't do justice to the colours.
For the 1st one, think along the lines of OPI Go On Green and even RBL Scrangie (the blue version).
The other one is a light gold glitter that has just that little hint of olive.

The nail art stuff.

All packed and ready to be shipped to their new owner!

Also, since this is a post about giveaway, just take note that there are quite a few blogs that are hosting giveaways too:

1) Evil angel (aka missnono) from Black Nail Polish and Lip Gloss is celebrating fall and giving away her own brand of eye shadows, nail polishes and lip gloss!

2) Liz from Iceomatic's Nails is giving away Viva La Vespa to her blog followers!
*yeah! I hyperventilated too when I read this!*

3)Gildedangel from Naive Nails is giving away 3 Sinful Colours to celebrate hitting 50 followers! Way to go gal! I see that there's a lot more followers now too! =)

4) Painted Lady Fingers is giving away Essie St Martin Mint *gasp! yeah! another HTF!* and a lovely Halloween painting. She's celebrating 100+ followers!

5) There's also a lovely haul of items (including a China Glaze, Nail Tek, etc) on Also Known as.... This is also another nail blog that I enjoy reading

6) Okay, this one isn't a giveaway but there are prizes =)
There's a nail art contest hosted on Sasse's 'nad Stamping Stampede. The prizes are amazing! Contest ends 8th October

And to end off the giveaways, some really cute cupcakes that I wanna share with you guys.
A colleague recently gave birth to a baby girl. She's on maternity leave right now but came around yesterday to deliver cupcakes for us as part of her baby girl's 1st month celebration.

The 1st month celebration, known as Man Yue in Mandarin is a traditional Chinese custom. It's typical for the parents of the newborn to give out cakes or some sweet stuff for others to share in the joy. Another traditional item that one may also receive is a hard-boiled egg (shell intact) that has been dyed a bright red.


Anyway, the cupcakes we got were the most adorable that I have ever seen!
Each one of us got a cupcake each, but there were a total of 4 cute designs.

This one's a baby bib.

Look at that milk bottle! Isnt't that the cutest?!

Then there was a hearts design...

And this is the one that I got!
Baby Booties!!

Look at that flower detail! So sweet!

How nice of you to have a giveaway Berry! My face is right there under followers. I'm not sure how you want us to enter? Those cupcakes look yummy. That's also a nice tradition. Thanks for sharing it. I like hearing about others traditions and country.

This is an awesome giveaway! How do you want us to enter? You have followers that follow you privately, meaning that you don't see their picture under followers, but they do follow you. When you click on their profile, it shows that they follow you. Those sweets look delicious! I had no idea about that tradition, thank you for sharing it with us! Could you share more things like that in conjuction with your nail posts? That would be really cool!
