I’ve had a busy past few weeks. Like, really busy. In the short amount of time I have to myself in the day (when the kids are all in school & childcare), it’s usually a mad rush of trying to get some laundry done, trying to get dinner prepped (though I must confess I’ve taken to take-out for many-a-day), and trying to get my new Jamberry Nails sideline up and running.
And it has been a lot of work. A lot of things to prepare, and while there are a lot of resources out there, still, a lot depends on your OWN preparation and work. Lots and lots of work. Did I mention work yet? Haha! As with any job that is commission-based, really, what you put in determines what you will get out, and there won’t be any sudden windfall from the sky, but there will be a lot of perspiration, late nights, and hard work (there’s that word again!)
In the midst of my preparation, I did have one plan in mind – and that is to do a full month of giveaways! Rather than approaching the big guns, I decided, given my rather unique position of being both a blogger, having my own online clothing store, and also in network marketing, I would approach people “just like me” – yup, the small business owners and the direct sellers!
And so I’m happy to bring you my very own October Blitz: Four weeks of giveaways, four happy-clappy winners!
For the very first week, I’ve put together a package that will be a pampering experience for sure! From head to toe, here’s what you can win:
#1: A $50 Esy Jewellery voucher.
A girl’s got to have her bling, don’t you agree? I first stumbled across this Australia-based company a few months back & I’ve purchased from them too. My favourite piece from them remains the Botany Bay bracelet (which is still available!). I love the statement pieces – because they are exactly just that – statement pieces! The unique thing about Esy is that they have representatives in the major states, so you can put a “face” to the company and have someone to chat to and recommend pieces for you. It makes the whole experience of merely “shopping online” a more personal and enjoyable one, I reckon!
Oh, and check out their latest charity venture, in support of Cancer Research, here!
#2: Scentsy’s Black Raspberry Vanilla Washer Whiffs.
Have you heard of Scentsy? I must admit, I didn’t, till I landed in Australia. Think: gorgeous warmers, beautifully scented melts that melt at room temperature and won’t scald you even if you (or the little ones) touch the melted wax, Scentsy Buddies (cute stuffed toys with a Scent Pak in each) which works great to calm kids and help with separation anxiety.
Well, if you aren’t familiar, have a chat with Victoria, who’s kindly sponsored this item for the giveaway, or check out her website for the full range of the items Scentsy offers! Zoie has about… 6, no, 7, maybe 8 Buddies and her “friends” (her words, not mine) follow her to bed. Every. Single. Night.
#3: Younique 3D+ Mascara & a Moodstruck Precision Pencil in Proper
Younique was a make up company I stumbled upon when I came to Sydney. I am not really a make-up snob. Okay, maybe just a tad. But I am always game to try new things, and the promises of eyelashes that would look like falsies? Take my money now!
I have since used about 2 packs of the 3D mascara in the last two years. Sure, it seems quite little, but considering the number of times I even bother to paint my face, this number is phenomenal~!
If you’ve never tried this mascara before – this is a GOOD chance to get started! Naomi D is the sponsor for this prize, and she’ll be happy to get more to you if you didn’t win this pack!
#4: A $25 Gift Card from GorgeousJam.com, my own Jamberry sideline!
I love Jamberry and I hope you will to. One lucky winner will walk off with a $25 e-Gift Certificate in this bundle, that can be used in my store. Pick from 300+ nail wrap designs, or our range of nail lacquers, gel enamels or nail care products!
