A Giveaway!

Hello my beautiful blog readers!  So I've been thinking and I've decided to do my very first giveaway...how does that sound?  Awesome right?  YES!  So I've put together a cosmetic bag and I'm filling it with some of my favorite products from different lines....mostly Clinique and of course Lancome.  It will have some shadows, a dual ended lipgloss/stick, 2 mascaras, 2 eye make up removers, Lancome juicy tube (also a lipgloss), plus a smaller size cosmetics bag.  I'll be putting it completely together and then I'll take a picture and post it so you can see.  A lot of giveaways are just "leave a comment and I'll randomly pick" but I think that's too easy...and boring.  So I'm thinking up some ideas as to what type of comment you have to leave me.  I'm thinking either a fill in the blank or leave me a playlist of your top 5 favorite songs or something of that sort.  I'll still choose randomly so that it's fair.  I wouldn't want anyone to accuse me of nepotism since my Mom is maybe the only one who reads my blog anyway.....(hopefully that's not true....because that would just be sad).
So what I need from you are ideas and comments.
1 Do you like this idea?
2.Do you have a fun idea for how we should do this giveaway?

The more feedback I get, the more apt I'll be to actually do the giveaway.  If all I hear are crickets then I'll scratch the idea.  So make sure you're heard!

Happy Friday!

I love the idea - and I'll love it even more if I win something! I have seen various ideas for give aways, but they are always something along your ideas.

I stumbled upon your blog reading Bethany Joy Galeotti's blog and can I just say, I really enjoy reading your blog! So fun! I LOVE the idea of a giveaway especially cosmetics because you can never have enough! Love your ideas for the giveaway a few others are a quote from a movie and name that movie or you could do it with a song also. Then choose randomly from the people that get it right!

i love the idea and you should do the random number thing online, you know what i'm talking about? to keep things fair, but to be a part of the numbers, you have to post a comment with your opinion or creative take on something.... like, "tell me why your favorite color is better than the others." ok, that is a lame example, but you get what i mean right? so there you have it.

I'm a new follower, and I love your playlists! Our musical tastes are so similar! Anyways, I love the idea of a different sort of giveaway. I love the top 5 songs idea. And who doesn't love new makeup?

Hi, Vanessa!! I, too, came across your blog through bethanyjoy.com . She's amazing right? Yeah. Anywho, I find your blog very entertaining! A giveaway sounds like a great idea. I would do that too, but i suspect the number of people who read my blog I can count on one hand. ; )

So, yeah. Keep it up with the awesome/funny and I'll catch you later!! :)

this is a great idea, Chela. I found your blog via you being my friend. that is so great! umm you should do fill in the blank questions. like "If I could eat any food everyday for the rest of my life, I would eat...." etc. xoxo (ps- my answer to that would be....nutella crepes)

Hey Vanessa, I'm new to your blog! At least I'm reading it! This is a great idea. If I had ANY readers I'd do the same! Hmm an idea for the giveaway...I am guessing that you love OTH... as do I... completely obsessed. Its changed my life. So maybe it could be that you have to choose your favourite quote/episode/song from any One Tree Hill episode? I'd be into that! :) Hope we can become blogging friends! ... lord knows I need some, as no one reads mine! :P

-Steph
