COME JOIN My Silver Birthday Giveaway!!!

When I was a kid, birthdays always mean receiving greetings, well wishes, money, and the more exciting one – gifts! My birthday falls during summer vacation, and I’ve always regret that, because there’s no way I can have a party in school. No fastfood spaghetti, burgers, sundaes, and a mascot to boot. And the best thing that comes with school parties? Gifts (again!). I don’t even care what I get, usable or not, and in most cases not, just the mere act of tearing the wrapper in haste is already exciting if not therapeutic to my young heart.

Silver belle I am come the 25th of April, and while receiving gifts will forever be nice, I’ve heard and proven, in so many chances, that giving by far feels a lot better. I’m sure you know where this is headed! In celebration of my 25 years of struggle to live an insanely beautiful life, I’m giving out some goodies to 3 fabulous readers. And in the spirit of giving, the mechanics are so simple, you can type and join with your eyes half closed!

No frills mechanics:

1. You must be a follower (existing followers get 2 entries)

2. Leave a comment and simply complete the sentence “I read your blog because ____________” (No right or wrong answers folks, just be honest!)

3. Let your friends know so they can join too, announce this giveaway contest in your blog, or FB, or any social network sites, and paste the link in your comment.

Three winners will be chosen:

1. Based on your answer to item mechanics # 2 (I will pick the best one)

2. Randomly

3. Randomly

There should be at least 10 official unique (meaning 1 person with 2 entries will still be counted as 1) for this giveaway to commence. Open for Philippine readers only. I’m sorry to my international readers, the shipping fee kills me! =(

I hope you care to join, the prizes are humble, but definitely thought of. =)


TFS Eyelash Curler

Maybelline Lash Expansion Waterproof Mascara (new, w/o box)

Elianto Indian Red nail polish

Shell Earrings from Boracay


Ilog Maria Honey Propolis Liquid Soap in Green Tea (One of my HG bodywash!)

Ilog Maria Spearmint Round Soap (Same ones used in Sonya’s Garden)

Human Nature Strengthening Conditioner

Human Nature Intensive Hair Mask

TFS cotton swabs (The wooden sticks made the cut for me!)


Mary Kay Clarifying Cleanser

Mary Kay Pore Purifying Serum

Mary Kay Spot Solution Treatment

I will announce the winners on May 25, as this is also my blog’s 1st year anniversary (CHEERS!). The first winner to email me gets to choose their prize.

*In no way am I endorsing any products above, and reviews are based solely on my personal experience.*

I'm excited to announce the winners as early as now! And to read your comments, too. Goodnight for now beauties!

  22. Happy Birthday dear

    i am a new follower!

    First and foremost i followed you because of this giveaway(atleast I am HONEST!)and then i just knew that you are also a Filipina.

    I spent more than 30 minutes to read on your posts in order for me to answer your question dear.

    I read your blog because as you said on the title itself, "Random thoughts on living an INSANELY BEAUTIFUL life", which is definitely true.You're not like the others who blog only about make up but other aspects as well. You express your feelings for your rude neighbor, you're cousin's wedding on Calaruega, then a venture of business with 2 men you loved, some food reviews(which i definitely love!) and so other more. I got to read only your 2010 entries but I am looking forward to read your future entries.

    Its that you enjoy life at every aspect of it.Whether your sad, happy, angry or even thrilled about it(also read the lipstick thing which can change its color when we girls are turned on!lol!)I am the person who likes to see others perspective on how they view the so called LIFE!


  23. i post your giveaway on my sidebar :)
    i almost forgot! :)

  24. “I read your blog because i want to (hehe). your posts are pretty informative. =)

  25. Hi! I'm an old follower.

    I go to your blog coz I love reading reviews and point of views on beauty related stuff..and you are so nice and always dropping by so I'm very thankful to you too ^_^

    Happy birthday!

    I posted about your giveaway here:

  26. a very belated happy birthday!

    i read your blog because..
    i like product reviews and its so nice that you review products which are readily available, affordable and most of them work for me too..
    i also like that you post things about your personal life without making the blog sound like a personal rant/rave cyber diary (if u get wat i mean). you always do keep stuff interesting..
    and lastly this may sound weird but i visit your blog for the blog list updates.. i found yours thru some1 else's.. i figure if she knows what she's talkin' about she'll want to read from someone else in the know..

    thats it.. rather long.. hope i win..
