♥ February News and Featured Posts ♥

Hello my Beauties,

so good to see you on my blog again.
As you might have noticed, i’ve been a little less active this month on here, which was mainly due to a very busy time schedule in my daily life. But let me tell you – i’ve missed you all very much!
Of course i was popping in and out as much as i could. The pleasant outcome was to be mentioned by a few very talented bloggers and twitter friends.
Some of the posts were really so unexpected and wonderful, that i really felt blessed to have found such amazing people in the blogger community.
If you don’t mind, i would love to share those news and featured posts with you. I hope you understand, that i’m not bragging, but simply being incredibly flattered and happy.

If you a steady follower of the beauty blogging community, you know for sure, that by the end of 2012, close to the holiday season, there have been hundreds of beauty giveaways happening. As i’m exactly as you are – a typical makeup loving girl, i entered a few of those held by bloggers i follow anyway. And so the magic happened and I was a lucky winner. But see for yourself.
(Ps: it’s going to be a long blog post, so you better grab your cup of tea, while reading it!)

I had entered the Goodbye 2012 Giveaway on:
Laura’s blog A scottish lass, that she was holding together with Georgina from Makeup Pixi3.a scottish lass and makeup-pixi3 giveaway winner Luchessa                                              (screen shots from Makeup-Pixi3)
Ok, can we stop for a moment and look at the number of total entries for that giveaway. I’m usually not someone, who easily win’s anything, but knowing that out of 12745 entries the winner was ME, is kind of incredible. And i’m not just saying that, i seriously mean it. When i got Laura’s tweet, it totally made my day. 🙂

Well, as you know, i’m still a newbie to the blogging world and something like a blog button is nothing i ever made before. But luckily my amazing blogging buddy the Sweet Jelly Bean, who i’m going to mention later on, was so kind to lend me a helping hand.
And the next day my happy face was was shining, along other bloggers from Georgina’s side bar. 🙂

So while Laura sent me the beautiful Dior Grand Bal Makeup Palette, which should arrive this week (i might be doing a review on it, ones i get the chance to play with the palette for a little bit) – Georgina offered me a featured blog post along her other advertisers.

Around the same time i became a sponsor for Cherryfashionblog and did a collaborative blog post with bloggers from around the world on Sweetjellybean.com – I told you about it HERE.
Nia from Cherryfashionblog featured me just yesterday in a lovely Gorgeous Advertisers post! She asked me a few questions about me and my blog beforehand. And what the result of it are, can be seen if you just click on the post name above. 🙂 Cherryfashion NiaThanks Nia from putting me into such a flattering light!

My Sweet Jelly Bean – Donah was a birthday girl this month, so i’ve decided to send her a few goodies, like a matte top coat, that we were talking about before. And of course i didn’t expect her to write anything about it, since it was not a swap or sponsoring, but just a birthday gift. But you know Donah – she totally did. I’m not going to mention, that i had tears in my eyes while reading her heart-warming words, you can see for yourself. 🙂

My favorite expression of this february is definitely going to be: “like two peas in a pod of all things beauty”!
Donah took so carefully these pictures of her ” Luchessa branded box”, that i just had to show it to you.Sweetjellybean.com
Donah also said, she meant to feature me & my blog over on site anyways, and this birthday box seemed to be a good occasion.
I’m very happy to have found such a lovely & dedicated friend in Donah. Take a look on the complete post HERE.

And now on to my latest adventure over at Nykki-talks-beauty.
Nykki is a smart and skilled beauty blogger from Arizona, who loves this community very much, which definitely shows in her dedication. She is always involved in group projects and useful blogging ideas and that’s one of the reasons, why her followers love her personality and her blog.
That is also why i’ve decided to become a sponsor for the upcoming month over on her page.

One of the cool perks of being an advertiser on Nykki’s blog, was also a featured post about me & my blog. She decided to write a little intro herself (and what a nice intro it was!) and go for an unusual question, that i had to answer.

If you are interested in what my answer to this question was, you need to go over to Nykki’s 
Five Things I’m Currently {Loving} and scroll down!! Believe me, you don’t want to miss that! At first that question seemed to be oh so easy, but when i started really thinking about it, i knew it wouldn’t be easy at all. 🙂

So as you can see, even if i haven’t been posting much myself during february, i was still somewhere very close.
I’m incredibly thankful for all the opportunities i have been given through all these great bloggers, the friendships and the new skills, that i’m gaining every day, by interacting with all of you! I guess, that’s what they call – a personal growth?!

Last but not least i would like to share some of the sweetest tweets of this and past month’s!

I hope you share my happiness and visit some of these bloggers to check their pages out. 
Until next time – stay beautiful! 😉
