Blog Birthday Giveaway! [CLOSED]

Hello lovelies! In May, my little blog turned 2 years old. Go ahead, take a moment to sing Happy Birthday....
Thank you, thank you :). With work keeping me busy, I wasn't able to do this giveaway last month even though I really wanted to thank you guys. Thank you all for your support, love, and encouragement. Whether you just read my blog, comment, send me emails, Tweet me, or whatever, I appreciate it so very much.
On that note, my blog will be very quite for the next few months. Not only have I lost some of my blogging mojo, but work is insanely busy this time of year (I ain't complaining!). There will still be posts, just not as frequently and I'll still be active on Twitter and Instagram :).'

If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have already seen a picture of what I said was one of two giveaway prizes. I changed my mind and decided to mix up the prizes to give them a lovely variety of products. I may also throw in some additional items that you won't know about until you open the box.
How to enter:
  • Follow me on InstagramTwitter, and/or Bloglovin (let me know in the comments section which social media platform(s) you follow me on and your name on those platform(s))
  • Let me know, in the comments section, what you have planned for the summer OR what your fondest memory of summer is
  • Only leave one comment with all of the above information please :)
 What you'll win:

Prize #1:
  • Lyck Bodycare Body Butter in Pink Lemonade
  • Lyck Bodycare Lip Butter in Candied Orange
  • Evie Miracle oil (basically rosehip and rose otto oil)
  • One Love Organics Brand New Day Scrub + Mask
  • Sappho Pressed Shadow in Craving Cocoa (see swatches here)

Prize #2:
  • Lyck Bodycare Body Butter in Exotic Kiss
  • Pure + Simple Pressed Blush in Soleil (see swatches here)
  • Physicians Formula Organic Wear CC Mascara (this came in a duo pack. I took a tube for myself and kept one for you guys. It has never been used but will ship without a box)
  • Myra Aso 100% Pure Marula Oil
  • Lyck Bodycare Glossy Box (mini)
  • S.W. Basics Cocoa Butter Lip Balm
  • Sephora Silicone Exfoliating Pad

Official Rules:

All entrants must be 18 years of age (or older) or have permission of their legal guardian, as I will need your mailing address. Contest will end at 11:59 pm EST on June 23rd, 2014. Winners will be chosen at random and announced here. Winners will have 48 hours to email me at If one or both winners do not claim their giveaway prize within 48 hours, another will be chosen. Giveaway is open internationally. Void where prohibited by law.

  8. I've been following you on twitter, instagram & bloglovin my id on all three is elegantlyeco. My fondest memory of summer was the first time I went to Australia. We visited the Twelve Apostles in Port Cambell. The day we went it was the most beautiful & perfect day. The sun was beating down on me so it could've been insanely hot. But fresh, cooling breezes were coming off the ocean & hit me as I stood on the cliffside looking at the Twelve Apostles. I've never forgotten the sensation of that day since. It was like heaven on earth & I'd like to go back someday.

    My plans for this summer are to host a housewarming party for my cousin. She just moved into a new house and literally has nothing to furnish the place. I also have another housewarming to attend to in July for a friend who is taking over her parents house. This Saturday I will be hanging out with one of my best friends whom I haven't seen in over 5 months! Very excited about that. Finally, I plan to try and take a road trip no matter how small. :) I hope you have a nice summer!!
