Little Valentine’s Giveaway – because I love you all!

I did plan to do a couple of Valentine’s themed Easy Peasy nail tutorials for you, but I left it far too late to start thinking about it and have had a big old creativity fail, I literally can’t think of ONE original idea.

:: Sleek MakeUP Limited Edition pout polish in Scandal

  3. Hi Leanne, thank you for holding the giveaway. The person I admire the most is my grandma. I can talk to her about anything, she has alot of wisdom and is able to put herself in someone else shoes. She never judges anyone and is great company.


  4. Hi! Please enter me too :)
    I’m not someone to worship celebrities, but I admire my friend (she’s older than me, and my former boss) for the open and cordial way she has with people, that attracts lots of interesting friends. When I met her I was extremely shy, but I’d like to think she rubbed off on me a little and I’m getting better at socializing :)

    I think I admire my mom this most (I know it’s cliche!) because she’s given up so much for our family and also for me. At this moment in time I can’t imagine doing what she’s done so yes.. I admire her the most :)

  6. enter me please!

    The person i admire most is my oldest sister. She has been through hard times but always pulls through. She’s often happy, kind, good at listening when I have a trouble and just a nice person! Even though she’s 10 years older than me I feel like we have a good relationship!

    I admire my mom the most. she’s very tough. she’s been thru a lot and still held her chin up. she always had her faith in me, im so blessed to have her. and one thing that makes her irreplaceable is her ability to make everything goes according to plan. i love her so much.

  8. Following via friend connect..think its as tinker_bell1990
    The person I admire most hmm thats a hard one. I would probably say I admire anyone who has faced harship in their life but still carries on. Sounds like a cop out I know, but I know so many people who no matter what they face they always seem to smile.

  9. I follow Karen Scammell
    twannywun at hotmail dot com
    The person I admire most is David Attenborough. He has done so much to educate the public about wildlife and show us things we could never dream of seeing in real life, and he is giving us a chance to think about the environment more and save it before it is too late.

    My mom’s a given but aside from her I really do admire Ricky Gervais. Many people may hate him for being so brutally honest but that’s what I love about him. He tells it as it is and he isn’t jaded by fame or celebrity.

  11. Ooh nice giveaway !

    I must say I admire a lot of people, really, I can be so amazed by people achieving something, like they’re life goals, people that can come through hard moments, people with natural taste and “présence” or someone able to create something really special . I think every single person out there has something to be admired, and I’m always eager to find out what it is :)

  12. the person i admire most would have to be my boyfriend, not only has he stuck with me in a long distance relationship for 3 and a half years but he doesnt have the best home life and i really admire him for being able to deal with that.

    really nice giveaway:) xxx

  13. I admire my grandparents the most. My papa has just turned 80, and despite having a triple heart bypass.. he doesn’t want to (and doesn’t intend to) stop helping everyone. He is always fixing cars, helping people with little jobs here and there and generally just being fab!!

  14. Hi.

    I am a 22 year old teacherstudent from Denmark, and I am crazy about your cool nails on your blog!

    well about your question, I dont think that love and admiration is the same, so I wont list anyone from my family, even though they all have lots and lots of good qualities that I both admire and love.
    actually I am going to say someone I just met.
    My education let us work as a trainee, and there I met a wonderful talented teacher. She is the kind of teacher I want to be, she is strict but loving, and always has the children in focus. she maintain a high quality in her teaching while she at the same time is emotionally prestent in every aspect of the job.
    That is definetely admireable I think!

    i cross my heart

  15. I really admire Mary Portas, she’s a very opinionated person who gives advice on how to revamp shops whose business is dwindling and she’s such a great businesswoman! i love her attitude!

    jenlovesbeauty at gmail dot com

    am following on GFC already :)

  16. The person I admire the most is J.K. Rowling. I respect and admire her because she is an amazing writer and gone through so much. She didn’t give up when 12 publishers rejected her book, and now look how far she’s come. She created the whole Harry Potter world, it takes a lot to do something like that.


  17. That’s such a hard question! I’m honestly not sure. I admire different people for different reasons. But I’d say my mum because shes just awesome and has brought me and my brothers up so well and worked so many hours to help us out when we were younger.

  18. Thanks for the giveaway!
    my email is:

    I admire most my mum, for being sooooooo strong and just wanting the best for me and my siblings, also for being able to raise 5 kids by herself, my love and admiration for her is simply un-describeable!
    thanks <3

  19. Nice giveaway.
    My email is: guitarsteffie1(@)yahoo(dot)com

    The person I admire the most is my mom. Even though she has a university degree and always wanted to work in that field she studied in, she stayed home so she could be there for us. I especially admire her for just having kids, it’s not something I’m looking forward to myself.

  20. Aw the person I admire the most is my boyfriend. Sounds soppy but seriously, his family is mental, like actually belong on Jeremy Kyle, new drama every week that kind of thing. How he manages to not only keep it together but remain normal is beyond me, it stresses me out and I’m not there! :)

  21. This is a great giveaway! I really want the Sleek blush! The person I admire most is my Grandmother. Right now she is taking care of her mother (my great grandmother) and my father after her husband just recently passed. She is incredibly strong and I hope that one day I can emanate some of her qualities.

  22. Mh I never really admire someone but I really liked the way a good friend was acting and how her lifestyle was. I always wanted to be like her and she really changed my life.


  23. Great giveaway :)

    I admire one of my close friends, as she had leukaemia as a teenager but has beaten it and really embraces life now.

  25. Hi,
    my idol is Richard Feynman, a physicist, Nobel prize. His books gave me the idea of getting a Math degree, and his personal view of life made me feel more comfortable with my doubt.


  26. I just learned about a man who has brought a clinic to Nepal to cure people’s cararacts, which are common in the isolated mountain communities because of the high levels of UV radiation and a lack of medical care. He does this for free. He’s curing thousands of people and giving them back their sight.

    I admire him and people like him who are doing good in the world.

    Thanks for the giveaway :)

  27. I admire one of my dearest friends quite a lot. I have never met anyone with that high self-confidence and that’s what makes her so very admirable to me. Her personalitry is so inspiring and she makes enjoying life look so easy :D

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)


  28. Following your blog via GFC as Ezzy.
    I know everyone says it, but honestly my real inspiration is my mom. She had to go through lots at a pretty young age and I really admire her for handling it all along with taking care of us 4 siblings. She was so busy with raising us up and taking care of us, that she neglected her own happiness and issues just so that we lead a good life. I hope someday to give her back all the love and care she gave me & show her what she means to me :)


  29. I admire a popular blogger in Singapore named Xiaxue. I guess I admire her a lot because she is brave enough to speak her mind about whatever she wants, even about controversial topics!
    She also is really funny & interesting.


  30. Who I admire, love and miss more because she was the most wonderful person in the world: my mother, she was the best, take care of all in the family, I just hope to be at least the half better mom, wife and woman that she was, even when she was very ill and the only thing she could do was lay on a hospital bed was always caring for everybody else instead of her own wellness, And now that i don’t have her with me is when i see how i really need her and all the things she did for me.

  31. I admire my boyfriend the most! He has been through the hardest of trials, and he still manages to live a spontaneous life. I know it sounds a little contradictory, but really! He is amazing!

  32. I admire my Mum the most, I never had my dad beside me, it was only my mum and me. I don’t know what it is a father. When I was young I admired my dad a long time, but I realized there is NO REASON.
    He was never beside me when my heart was broken, he was never there when I was happy, I don’t know him.
    When I was sad, when sky was grey, my mom was always by my side, I owe her all.
    She gave me all I needed & more.

    Mom I love you.

  33. What a great giveaway! Thank you :)

    The person I admire most is my Granny – she’s always been so kind, a great baker and tells amazing stories. Seeing how well she’s coped after my Grandpa passed away a couple of years ago has been very inspiring, really. I love her to bits!

  34. Thanks for the giveaway! The person I admire most is my mom because she is the strongest and kindest person I know.

    The person I admire the most is no one really, I believe everyone you meet or may know in life is worthy of admiration because everyone has their own struggles in life that they get through and each person has their own story and usually most have a story worth admiring. I try not to idolize only one person, I cherish every person/influence in my life for all that they are.

    Thank you for the adorable giveaway! I think it’s a sweet one.

  36. Email is sarahmelita (at) hotmail (dot) com.

    The person I admire most is my (almost) sister in law, she hasn’t had an alcoholic drink since she was 19 and I really admire her strength for just saying no.

  37. I know this sounds silly, but the person I admire the most is completely fictional, namely one Daria Morgendorffer. She’s cynical, a realist and angry because the world loves a pretty idiot and hates a plain genius. *shrugs* I’ve yet to meet a real person with such clear values (that I actually agree with).
    Thanks for this great opportunity!

    The person I admire the most right now is a friend named Paul. He’s so smart and humble at the same time. He’s my muse. Having a cute wife and 2 lovely kiddos helps too! I hope to have a family as loving as his someday. I can only dream of being as smart as he is but it makes me try. :)

  39. Hey Thanks for this giveaway =)
    My email is:
    The person I admire the most is my old chemistry teacher who really believed in me and never ever gave up encouraging me to do well =) I wasn’t doing very well when I started out and all the other teachers gave up on me…but he never backed away and as a result of his kind words and never irritated look on his face after I asked him to repeat something for the 100th time, I ended up with a grade A =D Thats why I admire him =)

    I admire my mom the most because she’s gone through a lot for me and did the best she could for providing with me despite the fact that she was an only parent

  41. I admire my grandma the most. She brought me up on her own and gave me so much love.. She is my mother and my father – my 2in1 :) Can’t imagine my life without her and I strive to be like her: strong, confident, caring and loving.


    Miss A

  42. This is kinda corny, but I admire my fiance. He was never really did well in school and he busted his butt to get to be a firefighter. It was a lot of schooling and patience. He risks his life to go into buring buildings to save other people. I don’t think I could do that. He is also a paramedic. I could never do that! Me+blood=no good.
    Great giveaway, btw.

  43. For the longest time it was my dad, I thought the sun rose and set within him. As I grew older I started realizing all of the horrible things he had done within my mom and his relationship before I knew to make an opinion. Now, it’s my salon owner. She was my teacher in beauty school and she has successfully kept a salon up and running since June 1st of 09. I’ve been there since before day one and I know how much work it has been for her. She has two kids, 2 and 8, and a very hectic home life along with keeping the salon busy. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today without her.

  44. I’m following you via GFC as Jasmine1485 :)

    The person I admire most is Anita Roddick, did you know she was a struggling single mum when she started the body shop? You should look up a biography, it’s very interesting reading ^_^

  45. Gorgeous giveaway, please enter me! I am following via Google Friend Connect under the name “Emma Greenwood”

    I admire two people the most, my boyfriend and my mum. I admire my boyfriend because he goes out of his way to be chivalrous and gentlemanly despite him being just 21, he always looks for a deeper meaning in what people have to say and reaches out to those who need it. I admire my mum or getting through a messy divorce and giving my brother and I a better life. <3

    Thank you! xx

    The person I admire the most is my mother. She is a very strong woman, very loving and caring and has done her best all of her life to provide for her children. She’s gives me love and support always.


  47. <3 the products and just pretty much everything about your blog. I follow through GFC names Amber and my email is

    The person I admire the most in my life has got to be my father, I know, weird right? But he’s taught me how to solve issues without making them problems along with helping me pick out the right makeup and nail polish to match my formal dress. He’s everything I could have dreamed of as a dad, and Im lucky to have him.


  48. I follow as Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes and my email is dragonrhia (at) gmail (dot) com

    My Dad, who has since passed away. If it wasn’t for him always telling me he loved me no matter what crazy/stupid thing I did next (and I was quite a challenge as a kid). He made me feel loved and if it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t do the work I now do as a behavioral therapist with adolescents who are struggling. Love HIM!

  49. Hi I follow via GFC as taen2692
    my email is

    The person that I admire most is my Nana. She is one of the strongest women I know she raised four children on her own when she was younger. Everyday she is so full of life she goes out and knows how to have a good time. My favorite example is how she just got a tattoo last year and her ears double pierced haha. :D

  50. Hi I follow by GFC as Tracy Leung and my email is

    The person I admire the most is my dad. He works so unbelievably hard to give us the best even though he is getting old and has less energy than before. As the man of the house, he always mans up to do the physical labour even though his back hurts. He always makes final decisions – sometimes resulting in us being really unhappy – and becomes the bad guy just so he can ultimately keep us safe or give us a better future. He is a man of integrity and although I may not always see it, I am so, so grateful he raised me.

  51. I am following you on Google Friend Connect as Viorela.
    my idol was my grandmother,she was a a great woman, a loving person, even though she didn’t always shown it.

  52. My Mum is THE most admirable person in my life, absolutely and always.

    My mum is most admirable, as she has 7 kids on her own, whilst achieving a successfull career. She left my Dad when I was four after a horrendous incident, and has amanged to raise myself and my brothers and sisters so well. She’s achieved a successful career, and is still climbing her way up the ladder, and most importantly she has found someone to truly love. My mum has never let an obstacle get in her way of what she wants to achieve in life, and is unbelivably proud of all of her children. Plus she’s climbed Mount Snowdon, even though she’s had a hip replacement!

    Thanks, Steph, you can email me at

  53. What a great giveaway! The person I admire the most is my mother! She’s sacrificed so much for me and my brother and has always supported us!

    GFC follower Sarah

  54. hello, hope you have had a great February. As for who I admire the most I would have to say my Grandmother. Even though she has been gone for many years now, in my heart I think she will always be my ideal of the kind of person I will always want to be.
