GIVEAWAY! Open until 17th September!

Okay ladies, I finally got around to it. :D I present to you…

My first giveaway!

This was originally intended to celebrate my reaching 50 readers, but I missed that one by a mile and didn’t notice I’d passed it until I’d reached 62. So I thought ‘no problem, I’ll do it when I get to 75!’, but then I quickly shot past 75 before I’d had a chance to get the prizes together. I’m currently on 83, but I’m not gonna leave it until 100 ’cause that’d be unfair on you all ’cause I did say I’d do it at 50.

No matter how many followers I have, I love you all! I know everyone says it but it really is uplifting to know that so many people take time, even if it’s only a few minutes, out of their own life to read what I have to say. So this is my thanks!

So here’s what you’re in with a chance of winning:

:: Sleek i-Divine Palette- ‘The Original’. This one is often underrated in favour of the limited edition ones!
:: Barry M Limited Edition Dazzle Dust (it’s a medium purple colour but as far as I’m aware hasn’t got a name).
:: Soap & Glory ‘Flake Away’ body scrub (50ml size tub)
:: Collection 2000 Hot Looks nail polish in ‘BMX Bandit’
:: Sample size of No7 Stay Perfect liquid liner in ‘Jewel’ (my favourite coloured liner!)
:: Sample (approx 1/4 teaspoon) of Illamasqua Pure Pigment in ‘Furore’
:: Sample sachet of MaxFactor Second Skin Foundation in ‘Golden’

A couple of things to note; the Illamasqua pigment sample is straight from my own full-size one. Secondly, the foundation sample came from some samples I was sent by MaxFactor last week but I know this one would be way too dark for me. If you win and you know it won’t match your skintone either, just give it to a friend :) it’s not going to do me any good sitting around here!

What do I have to do?

I thought it might be nice for us to think about something not related to our looks. To enter, comment and tell me something you’re really proud of yourself for. It could be exam results, it could be helping an old lady cross the road, it could be raising money for charity, anything. Just tell me something you’re proud of yourself for! :D Be sure to include your email address at the end so I can contact you if you win.


:: You MUST be a follower! Doesn’t matter if you’re not already a follower, you can start now. :)
:: Anyone in any country can enter (dependent on your country’s laws on receiving cosmetics from overseas)
:: To gain an extra entry, follow me on Twitter (@donotrefreeze) and tweet about this giveaway
:: To gain another extra entry, mention this on your blog (just slip it in at the end of a post, you don’t need to make a whole new one).
:: Make sure to mention in the comments if you Tweet or Blog about this, with links so I can check :)
:: The winner will be drawn from either or the old fashioned way from a hat on the 17th of September. That gives you exactly 3 weeks to enter. Go go go!

(In the event that the winner does not contact me within 24 hours, I’ll draw again).

Good luck! xo

  1. This is such an awesome giveaway!!

    I’m most proud of the fact that I’m finally following my dream to be a teacher. I never thought in high school that I would have enough money to be able to go to college, so I went to beauty school. Turns out, I loved doing hair, but hated working in a salon. Last month I finally gave up my cushy investments job (of 4 years!) to go to school fulltime! It’s hard but it will be worth it in the end.

  2. I’m super duper proud and giddy inside about my GCSE (what we call Standard grades) :p results. LIKE DOOD. I had an illness last september that forced me to stay bedridden and depressed blah blah blah for half the year – half the course! I had to do ALL the work at home and with little to no help. Maaaan I was SO surprised to see I had done so well for my grades considering I missed a lot of the work! :D om nom nom nom the happiness is eating away at my brain cells slowly. wheeee! whizzer giveaway (skins pandora style!)
    lotsa love!

  9. Hiii Congrats on so many followers 100+ ^^

    I’m really proud of myself because there was a point in my life that i hit rock bottom. Growing up with a single working father and little brother has been a quite difficult course without a women role model. I always struggled with the “latest” cool tennis shoes,brand name clothes, or the best toys as a little girl but it never stopped me from being who i am and taking care of my brother. No one taught me how to shop, how to put makeup on, or even do my hair..i had to learn it the hard way and take baby steps to become beautiful. At the end of the day, all that matters is accomplishing my responsibilities. People such as some family members, friends, and boyfriend.. always doubted my ambitions and tried to persuade me to join the army, work at a market, or a teacher. No matter the circumstances, I never gave up in high school and I’m proud to say that I’m a full time student at a university now focusing on my dreams to go to med school in hopes to become a successful doctor. The only thing that kept me pushing forward was motivation and self-determination : )

    have a wonderful day<33



  10. dear.. congrats on hitting 100+ followers

    iam proud of myself because:

    i loved and lived for my family and enjoys being a breadwinner despite the hardships, difficulties and responsibilities attached to the title. And yes, I salutes all the breadwinners in the world (may they be fathers, mothers, sons or daughters) for their big hearts and generosity of spirit


    i spread the word here:


    Love lots,

  11. great giveaway =D

    I am really proud of my A Level results. I got them last week and was so overjoyed with what I got. I worked really really hard for it and so it was great to see all the hard work and studying and pulling all nighters actually paid off!

    my email is –

  12. Hi, I’m leaving a comment for you because you have a wonderfully beautiful blog. I’ve really enjoyed reading your posts and got really absorbed by them ! You have fabulous pictures too. Thanks for sharing them all and best wishes….

  13. Congarts on all your followers. You’ve passed 100 already! I’ve read all of the comments and they are inspiring. I’m proud of myself for losing 80lbs. plus. I’m still going and it’s really hard some days. I have osteo arthritis and I can’t really walk around much. It’s tough trying to lose weight without exercising. As I lose I can move around more without as much pain. Somedays I do have bad pain (today) but I still try. I’m following Weight Watchers online and it is working. I’m counting points and entering them in my online food diary.

  14. I´m proud of myself for having been so motivated this summer. My last big exam is coming up (I´m in med school and graduating this year) and even though the weather has been soooo nice most days I have been inside studying. I´m paler than every summer before, but also smarter ;-)
