It could be nails, hair, makeup...anything beauty related! The giveaway will be from today, May 5 (Happy Cinco de Mayo!) until Wednesday, May 16.

I know some people might consider these milestones not really that big, but to me it's huge. I never expected even 1,000 views or 10 followers. So thank you all!


  1. It would nice to see more nail art designs and techniques :) really liked your distressed and feather nail art so yah :)

  2. do some short hair styles :)

  3. I really enjoyed your blog using colored eyeliner! I am interested in learning new ideas for hair that are simple but look nice for shoulder length hair. Most of the blogs I have been viewing are either for short hair or really long and I am needing something new and refreshing :) Thanks

  4. Hi Beth,
    I love your blog. Please post like how to match jewelry, bag and shoes for the outfit you are wearing. I personally find it a bit hard.

  5. Hi Beth! I always love to see tutorials for anything easy and quick, whether it be hairstyles, makeup tricks, or nail art. I'm all about looking good and fresh without it taking forever. Congrats on the milestones and keep it up!

  6. I love your blog, your nail and eye tutorial are amazing! i bookmarked it and followed, I would love more inspired looks like the lana del rey one

  7. Beth this is a lovely giveaway, I wish you all the best with your blog, many many followers and a lot of wives. I know the feeling when you sea a new subscriber or you read the positive comments!
    I am a nail art fan, so I enjoy reading your tutorials, until now my favorite was the feather and the acid washed mani, so I would love to read as many as possible creative step by step explained tutorials!

  8. I love your tutorials, and I think that you are awesome for doing this giveaway :) I would kinda like to know more on your opinions about which brands you think are the best.

  9. I was given your blog address from a customer while working (you look familiar so now Im wondering if it was you). It took me a couple days to visit but once I did I haven't stopped revisiting! I really like hearing about the different brands that you use and your hair tutorials. I'd love for you to do something on make-up in different lighting conditions!

    For me I'm the type of person who checks out customer reviews before investing! The same day I first visited your blog I went and bought some mark. make-up (for the first time)! Needless to say me and mark. are gonna have a long relationship :) Thanks a bunch for the tips so far, can't wait to see what you do next!

  10. I love the feather nail idea! Just found this blog on Pinterest. Love it! I haven't had a chance to peruse the whole blog yet (but trust me, I plan on it!)

    Do you do tutorials on how to make your own beauty products? Like bath scrubs, facial masks, etc? I think that would be totally awesome. Lately, I have wanted to start learning how to make my own stuff. :-)

  11. I just found your blog through Pinterest and am hooked! I've read every post and am so inspired. I'm one of those who often doesn't wear make-up as it seems like such a chore, and when I do wear it I always feel it's 'too much'. Your posts have shown me that it doesn't have to take an age and that it can look natural and light too.

    I've got nails that are - well - tough as nails - and I am immensely proud of them. I wear them long and have a crazy love-affair with nail polish. Your nail tutorials are super! I'm going to dash off now and try one - I think I'll try the feathers first.

    Thank you for being a breath of fresh air - you can certainly count me as one of your fans!

    Cheers from sunny South Africa!

  12. I'm another person who found your blog on Pinterest. I'm completely hopeless when it comes to makeup, hair or nails but thanks to your blog I'm slowly learning!
    Have you ever seen the water marble nail art? A friend of mine mentioned it but didn't know how to do it herself. Maybe you could do a post on it.

  13. I just found your blog on pinterest and I love it. I would be very excited about those milestones as well, it's a great accomplishment!

    I would love to see more nail art that is easy and cheap. Good luck with your blog:)
