PhD Fashionista turns Three! Birthday Giveaway

Hello loves!

PhD Fashionista turns three this weekend! To celebrate,  I am hosting another giveway, this time a bunch of beauty samples/minis in a cute little makeup bag! This giveaway is not sponsored by anyone or any company, just my own makeup bag because I want to thank you all for your continued support!

I have grown so much with this blog in the last three years, and I originally started it not thinking anything serious about it! I wasn’t posting regularly, didn’t have any dedication, and slowly throughout the years I have grown in the blogger community and have greatly upped my quality of posts, photos, and am posting more quality content in a regular fashion. This blog has also opened many doors for me and I have met some great people, some of whom have become close friends! Who knew, that a side hobby would link me with so many great people! And it offers a nice place to release stress when I don’t want to think about work/science! I actually look forward to preparing my post the night before when I get home, even if I am exhausted from a long day at work!

Only within the last year has my blog really taken off, when I started taking it more seriously, started going to blogger events in LA, and bought a new camera and lens. Putting a little effort really goes a long way, and it’s really nice to have something to provide a work/life balance! I am all about work/life balance recently, after coming back from my trip!

I have accumulated several really pretty makeup bags due to my Ipsy glambag subscription, but I figured I would gift one of my favorites, this pretty pink white and gray patterned makeup bag!

The Items part of the giveaway:

1. Bare Minerals 5 in 1 BB advanced performance cream eye shadow with SPF15

2. It Cosmetics CC+ Color correcting full coverage cream with anti-aging hydrating serum, SPF 50+

3. Ojon Color Sustain PRO – protects color for 40 washes!

4. Model Co Cosmetics Blush Cheek Powder in Peach Bellini

5. Ayres Body Butter – with essential oils of jasmine and rosemary

6. Hang Ten 08 Dark Tanning Oil, Natural Sunscreen SPF08 protection water resistant for 40 minutes

Unfortunately, this Giveaway is only open to those in the USA (I don’t want to be shipping creams and liquids internationally, it will cost a lot more $$), sorry about that! but still feel free to take part if you like! Use the rafflecopter to enter! The giveaway will last for two weeks and will end on Aug 28, and I will announce the winner at my next post on that Tuesday (Sept 1!).

There’s also a link to the giveaway on my facebook page, so you can enter there too!

    Congratulations, dear Andrea, for the anniversary! 3 years, that's so nice! I am so glad that the blog has taken off from the last year on, and that you have so good friends, that you knew through the blog – I wish I lived closer, so we could have some iced tea together (I say this, because I don't drink coffee 🙂 You are very very sweet and I really love to read your posts and when you leave me a comment – I always know it will be sweet, because you are sweet! I loved the giveaway, I wish good luck to the participants and whoever wins will love the products! A very beautiful weekend, dear Andrea!
