Blog Birthday Fabulous Favourites Giveaway

You can call me Oprah for the next 2 weeks – because today we are celebrating the Pink Peonies blog birthday (the blog turned 1 earlier this month) and the prize is a hamper filled with some of my favourite things.  Most of the items included in this hamper are products I have used and repurchased time and time again, and here’s the kicker:  Some of these products are not available in South Africa, so it’s kind of a double-whammy!

The most important thing I want you guys to know is that I purchased ALL of these products with my own money.  NONE of these products are sponsored in any way at all.  I figured it was about time I thanked you all for commenting, tweeting, liking and sending me lovely emails.  I’ve been going through a bit of a rough time lately and the support I have received from you guys has been amazing.  The amount of people who care about me and my blog (even though we have never even met before), still blows my mind every single day.

So, I’m pretty sure you guys are only skimming through the introductory paragraphs and want to get on to the good stuff.  Let’s get on with it then!  The hamper is worth +- R 2000,00 and following goodies are up for grabs:

♥  Sorbet Smoothing Face Mask

♥  Balm Balm Little Miracle Rosehip Serum

♥  Soap & Glory Hand Food Hand Cream

♥  ghd Heat Style Heat Protect Spray

♥  Soap & Glory Girligo Spray-On Body Moisturising Mist (smells incredible!)

♥  The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter

♥  NYX 9 Color Eyeshadow Palette in Merci Beaucoup (perfect shades for Autumn & Winter)

♥  NYX Butter Gloss in Peaches & Cream

♥  Wet n Wild Color Icon Trio in Walking On Eggshells

♥  eos Lipbalm in Strawberry Sorbet

♥  Smashbox Photo Op Eyeshadow Trio in Focal Point (I won this, well not this specific one, when I entered Nicole’s giveaway last year and I am obsessed with the shades in this trio)

♥  Jordana Fabuliner in Brown

♥  China Glaze Nail Polish in Fairy Dust (a stunning holographic glitter)

♥  Essie Nail Polish in Play Date

♥  Essie Nail Polish in Cute As A Button

And guess what?  I’m not going to stop there…  If anything catches my eye in the next 2 weeks or I discover an amazing new product, I am going to get it and include it in the hamper as well.  That way, there will be a surprise waiting for you too!

So here’s how you can enter (but remember to enter through the Rafflecopter widget, otherwise your entries won’t be valid):

  45. Shannon Grai 28 March 2014 / 16:17

    Hey Luzanne!

    I absolutely adore your blog. EVERY morning i get to work, make my cup of coffee, go to my favourites tab and open your blog. I have read some of the same posts over and over again. Well done on your wonderful space and Happy Birthday Pink Peonies.

    When i am standing in Dischem scrambling the isles for products, i stand there going through all of your posts to see if and what you have done reviews on and then buy that. The sales assistants must think i am cray because i am in there for AGES just on my phone LOL.

    Because of you i have bought so many things…EEEP…BUT mostly because of you i have figured out how to buy online and use the websites you give. I now have prized possessions that i never thought i would have unless i moved countries!!!

    Thank you so much for your wonderful words everyday – not a day goes by that Pink Peonies is not in my life :)

    Lots and lots of love

  46. Shannon Grai 28 March 2014 / 16:28

    Hi Luzanne,

    Thank you for creating such a wonderful space. The first thing i do when i get to work in the mornings is make a cup of coffee, go to my favourites tab, and open Pink Peonies.

    Because of you i have bought so many things. I stand in dischem scrolling through your blog and reading your reviews before buying ANYTHING. The shop assistants must think i am a crazy person just on her phone. LOL – but little do they know.

    I want to especially thank you for showing me how to buy online and where to buy. I have now bought items that are my prized possessions that i never thought i would have unless i moved countries!!!

    Thank you again for such a wonderful space for me to get away – NOT a day goes by that Pink Peonies is in my life!!!

    My favourite posts are by far your new product finds and reviews.

    Lots and lots of love

  47. Stephanie 28 March 2014 / 17:53

    Awwww this is a awesome way to give back :)

  48. Taryn Pongrac 28 March 2014 / 20:42

    As many other lovely ladies have already said here, I too enjoy blogs about beauty, fashion and lifestyle which is what has inspired me to start up my very own blog. Little did I know how much work actually goes into being a blogger and I commend all successful bloggers as I know all about the hard work put into your websites. What makes Pink Peonies extra special is that there is also a personal touch to what is being written and that makes it really easy to relate to.

    Luzaane, when I read that you actually purchased everything yourself, that showed me the true meaning of a giveaway and just plain simply: giving back! Well done xoxo

    Not sure I am allowed to enter again but in case I am, I will be following all your instructions to the T. Most unlikely that my name would be picked twice in a row anyway! Love reading all sorts of blogs – especially bloggers who are struggling with issues that I can identify with. I like Beauty blogs to see all the new products even if I can’t afford to buy them and Mummy blogs because I miss having babies and little ones around and hearing all the problems that people go through – and then all the love they have for their kids.

  51. Chante 28 March 2014 / 21:13

    I love reading about anything makeup orientated 😀 and Definitely new product reviews :) xxx

  52. Samiola_88 28 March 2014 / 22:20

    I enjoy reading the reviews. I read ALL your blogposts and I can honestly say I enjoyed every single one. You have such beautiful content and pictures and layout, something I can only aspire my blog to be one day. Your reviews are honest and in detail which I love. I really appreciate the time and effort it takes being a blogger myself. x

  53. Maria 28 March 2014 / 22:54

    I love reading reviews about beauty products, esoecially make-up and peoducts that are good for problematic skin as it’s so difficult to find something that actually works.

  54. stephanie graves 28 March 2014 / 23:59

    wow amazing giveaway Thank you,love the reviews on new products always a big help to no whether to buy or not

  55. CharlieW 29 March 2014 / 07:34

    super excited i really wana win, new entry today

  58. Liani 29 March 2014 / 10:39

    Kate Spade said: playing dress-up begins at 5 and never truly ends. The woman is clearly wise, but being a financial savvy 21st century gal on the go, I consider my budget, product reviews, adored brands and my favourite colour being pink, oh and glitter. If we were all specialists, we would cut our own hair. I want to know what rocks and what shocks, so I love the favourites of the month! The review creates an expectation and calls a (kate) spade a (kate) spade. In essence, it feels like I am keeping up with the Jones’ without having to first play guinea pig on the copious amounts of beauty products out there! Oh and I get total shark eyes for Love, lust, Lush category! Jazz hands! !!!

  59. Monique 29 March 2014 / 10:42

    Hi Pink Peonies

    I am obsessed with all things about beauty and those are generally the posts I absolutely love reading. One of the first posts I ever read on your blog was a beauty post and I discovered your instagram account through other beauties I follow. I love hearing what other ladies have thought about products, some that I have tried myself or some that I would love to try out. I learn about new products that are out there, tips and tricks for nail art and make-up, things I should or shouldn’t be doing in my beauty routine from blogs. I love your blog and having a little glimpse into your world. I think our blogs are a great reflection of who we are and what interests we have in life and make “online friends” who we later get to meet in person. Something we wouldn’t have done in the past. So keep up all the lovely work on your blog and happy birthday :-)


  134. Lindi Dewing 8 April 2014 / 14:55
