HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Hi everyone, hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. And now that 2013 is officially here, Happy New Year!

This is my first blog entry for 2013! Weeeeee! I am writing this blog entry as I wait for the party at home to begin.

This year has been an eventful year for me. Personally, it has also been eventful because I graduated from college and finally experienced the reality of working life this year. I also saw the union of many loved ones and the birth of many dear babies. I will become a godmother to one this March! It is going to be my first time becoming a godmother so I am super excited. This kid will be so spoilt!

With ups, there are downs. There are several events that were the dampers for the year of 2012. With the death of the gang rape victim in India still fresh in my mind, the brutality and savageness of human beings makes me wonder about the human nature. The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting incident broke my heart as I read about an armed man who took the lives of innocent children and adults in a senseless shooting. It makes me struggle to remind myself of human kindness in light of these issues.

Mother Nature also had a few surprises of her own this year. Hurricane Sandy destroyed many homes and I pray that those affected were able to rebuild their homes and partake in the festivities in the midst of such trying times.

Beauty wise, I finally bit the bullet and created my own YouTube channel and beauty blog this year. My makeup collection has expanded multifolds and there were certain products that were highlights of my year. You can see some of these in my December 2012 Favourites + Giveaway video:



Anyhow, I have always wanted to do a giveaway! I had originally intended to do giveaways throughout the month of December but I was too caught up in many other things. So here is my giveaway! I will be giving away a black Equip clutch as well as a Rimmel Glam Eyes HD Quad in #006 Purple Reign and Rimmel Extra WOW Lash Building Mascara.

    2. Hi there!

      I've got all your entries (YouTube, IG and blog). Thanks for participating in my giveaway! I have only recently got some of the OCC lip tars so I'm super excited to try them for the first time. I will keep an eye out for Super NSFW! Sadly, OCC ain't too easy to get here in Australia so maybe I'll have to start hunting online...
