Happy 7th Birthday to Beautyholics Anonymous (Plus A Giveaway!)


Happy 7th Birthday to Beautyholics Anonymous (Plus A Giveaway!)

I hope you’ve enjoyed the series of giveaways I’ve been doing in May so far. The response has been really good and it’s fun reading all of your entries. We’ve come to the final blog birthday giveaway and I’ve saved the best for last.

Before I get to the giveaway, I’d just like to say how much I appreciate each and everyone of you who took the time to read my blog. In fact, I don’t think I even have the words to describe how much all of you mean to me. A blog doesn’t grow without its readers and you have helped it (and me) grow so much over the years. Seven years. Lucky seven! Who knew it would last this long, eh?

I wish I can do an Oprah and say to all of you “You get a car! And you get a car! And YOU get a car!” but sadly I can’t (also mainly because even yours truly does not have a car πŸ˜› ). Who knows, maybe one day, eh? πŸ˜‰

This is just a small way of my showing my appreciation to you. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart.

Oh dear, I’m getting a bit teary here. Right, let’s move on to happier things and that’s the giveaway! *drumroll*.

One lucky reader will be able to win this:

Happy 7th Birthday to Beautyholics Anonymous (Plus A Giveaway!)

Here we have a SKII eyeshadow duo, SKII blush duo, SKII lipstick and a SKII Facial Treatment Clear Lotion in a white SKII cosmetics pouch. This was originally a gift-with-purchase I received when I purchased a few items from SKII but really, they’re too good not to share so instead of my keeping it, one lucky reader will hopefully get to enjoy them instead. Oh wait, that’s not all!

Happy 7th Birthday to Beautyholics Anonymous (Plus A Giveaway!)

That lucky reader will also win a House of Harlow 1960 engraved classic station necklace and a Clare V. striped coin purse. I bought these gorgeous items from Shopbop and are still waiting for these items to be delivered at the time of writing hence the use of stock photos. My favourite is the necklace. I have a replica of the necklace from Lovisa but it doesn’t even compare to the real deal.

But wait! There’s more!

Even though I can’t do an Oprah, I can do mini prize packs so another 5 lucky readers will win a mystery gift pack from me. I’m not going to tell you what’s in the gift packs but I think you’ll like it. I hope you do.

So that’s one grand prize and 5 mystery gift packs (I don’t like the term ‘consolation’ prizes) for a total of 6 winners! You get a prize! And YOU get a prize! πŸ˜›

1. What country you’re from (this giveaway is open internationally)

3. Anyone can enter the competition regardless of whether you’ve won anything here before.

  11. Ling

    I’m from Canada.
    I don’t know if I have any real hidden talents. Can I say proving my dad wrong? Lol, but seriously, he is the most stubborn person I know (as in he always thinks he’s right). He won’t admit that he’s wrong though too πŸ˜›
    Hopefully I win, since I never win anything in giveaways unfortunately.

  12. Jane

    I’m from Brisbane, Australia and my hidden talent is what my husband calls my ‘monkey feet’ – my feet double up as hands when I don’t feel like bending down. They are like having hands on the end of my feet! My toes are as dextrous as my fingers. Some talent!!!

  13. sataa

    I am from Pakistan and my hidden talent is that I can whistle any music tune and mimic a few bird’s voice with a whistle ,people like to sing their favorite song I like to whistle the tune of the song and I can mimic the sound of sparrows, nightengales,squarrels and also I can mimic any person’s voice I just need to hear someone talking and I will be able to mimic their way of talking and their voice πŸ™‚ but I do that only in front of my family πŸ™‚

I can also get dressed and brush my teeth in under two minutes – having a 7 mo baby will force you to do that.

    Thank you for this generous giveaway and congrads on making it to seven years. I may not comment on every single post you have but I always keep up with your blog whenever I can. Since I sometimes travel to Oz to visit family, I like keeping up to date with the latest Aussie beauty stuff that you feature on your blog. Keep up the good work, Tine!!

  18. Victoria

    Hi Tine. Thanks for being so generous as always and happy 7th anniversary to Beautyholics Anonymous πŸ™‚

    I am from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The only hidden talent I can think of is that I remember people’s faces and names very well be it real people or actors and actresses whom I might have seen in some obscure movie. Lol. To give you an example, I may have seen this total stranger in a shopping mall once and I will remember the face if I see that person again. Has always driven my husband nuts (in a good way) to the extend that whenever he needs to remember faces or names, he will always tell people that he needs to check with his wife first. Hahaha.

  19. Kirstie

    Hi! First of all congratulations and happy 7th anniversary! That’s a really long time, well done. Secondly thank you for doing this amazing giveaway!

    My hidden talent would have to be remembering numbers! I remember my mobile number, other peoples numbers, their birthdays etc. It’s crazy! I have no idea how my brain can store that many numbers! But I’m not that great with maths? Lol it’s a mystery.

  20. Eileen

    I’m from Malaysia (living in Australia) and I’d like to think I have more hidden talents than I do.

    Hi! Happy seventh birthday!

    CΓ© here, Argentinian living in sunny (oh SO sunny) California. I can’t raise an eyebrow! It’s frustrating! But I can sew.

Thank you so much and Happy 7th year anniversary!

    Hi Tine!
    Congratulations on reaching seven years, that’s a really impressive achievement!
    My debatably secret talent is for maths- despite my love for crazy bright make up and being persistently mistaken for a literature student, I’m actually completing a major in pure mathematics, one of my other great (although significantly less sparkly) loves πŸ™‚

    Again I have to say that seven years in the blogosphere isn’t something easy to achieve; however you have a really good blog so it doesn’t surprise me.

    I’m from Mexico and a hidden talent that I have is that I can touch the back of my head with my feet, like an ice skater or a ballet dancer, also I can lift one eyebrow and drives my sister nuts because she can’t.

LOL……freaks my friends and family out! I have never tried any SK-II products, they look awesome. I have been absolutely lusting after House Of Harlow jewelry, so boho chic!

    Happy 7th Birthday!

    1. I am a Malaysian living in Melbourne, Australia
    2. My hidden talent is ‘foreseeing’ future events which usually turns out the way I’ve ‘prophesied’. But then again, it’s not really a hidden talent but more to having lots of common sense/logic which most people don’t have so when it finally happens to them, my friends are amazed at how I can predict it so accurately and that’s when I tell them ‘hah, i told you so!’

  56. Sandra

    I’m from CANADA. My secret talent is being able to press different radio buttons with my fingertips and knuckle joints without moving my hand (due to being double jointed).

  57. Glogirl

    I’m from Australia – Sydney! I don’t have many talents, let alone hidden ones! But I guess I’m good at ninjaing through crowded places and weaving myself through since I’m so short! Vertically challenged twisted into hidden talent! Haha

  59. Hilary

    1) Australia πŸ˜€
    2) My Hidden Talent – I’m a demon on the dance floor – which is surprising for a fat chick, people don’t expect someone with thighs and a bum like mine to be able to do the splits, pirouette until I’m sick or be able to do Pointe, but I can πŸ˜€

    (And can I say – HOW exciting are those prizes?! House of Harlow!!! OMG, SO in love with that label!)
