Sparkles in the air (giveaway alert!)

Hello boys and girls!

There are a LOT of give-aways going on in some great make-up blogs. I thought I'd whack 'em in a post for those of you who may not know the blogs in question, but are interested in expanding/starting your collection, or maybe want to score a gift for a special someone in your life!

Grey's Get Naked giveaway (featuring Urban Decay's Naked palette)
Phyrra's Aromaleigh giveaway
Painted Princess's epic giveaway
Blix's huge sparkly giveaway! This will have FIVE winners!

Shuffle along and enter, there's some great prizes to be won. Also those are some really awesome bloggers.

I went to a Stargate convention today (!) so watch out for that post, coming up hopefully today or tomorrow. I do have lots of posts drafted, but I have to knuckle down and do some assignments for uni this week, as well as doing an extra day of work. Fun, fun!

How are you all, what's going on with your lives?


  1. Stargate convention! Sounds like a lot of fun :)

    Going on with me ... lots of sitting around at home and wanting to bake things. There's a program on over here called 'The Great British Bake-Off' which I've been watching which is pretty inspiring - it's a competition for amateur cooks, and each week they have 3 rounds of baking different things - the first round they get to be creative and pick what they want to do (e.g. "do a cake"), the second round they all have to do the same thing from the same recipe and it's judged on technicalities, and the third round they have some constraints but get a bit of control back (e.g. "do a cake using chocolate").

    So many beautiful things ... some of the recipes are here: Maybe if I get enough tidying and things done this morning I can bake this afternoon ...

  2. That sounds awesome! I like cooking shows which aren't Masterchef. It's so over-dramatic and I intensely dislike all the judges, I can't watch it.

    Thanks for the link! I dunno when I'll have time to bake :( but I will definitely bookmark it for future weekends.
