Winner – 1 year blogversary giveaway!

Wow, next time I’m going to pick an easier topic for a giveaway!
It was REALLY difficult to pick a winner!!

The majority of answers were along the lines of “I found Mona/Fuz ‘s blog and I realized other girls liked makeup like I did, and so I wanted to join the community!”

Yes, many girls mentioned Mona and Fuz by name!!!

SOOOO here is the winner!!!

Congratulations to Lulu!

I’ve sent you an email!

Here is part of Lulu’s comment, which is really how I feel right now!

“I am so glad I’ve joined blogging now, because I’ve made so many wonderful friends who share the same interests as me, and even though none of us had known each other before, but it always felt like we’ve known each other for a long time already every time we start talking, it’s such a great feeling. And it’s such a comforting place to be after a sucky day, to go home and read beauty blogs and chat up with blogger ladies on Twitter, because everyone’s so nice, helpful, and encouraging!”

I’ve been going through a rough patch lately, so I am REALLY thankful for the love and support from blogger girls!

Thanks again to everyone who joined my giveaway and took the time to write a comment!
And thank you for being part of this loving, supporting community!!!

My story goes like this:
I’ve been reading beauty blogs since I first found them through google.  I remember stumbling on blogs like Mona’s, Jamilla’s and Diana’s (yes, both of you!).  I was so touched by the friendship that bloggers had with each other, and I really wanted to be part of the community!  I wanted to learn and share with other bloggers, and I really wanted to be friends with all of you girls!  I guess my wish has come true!!!

Thank you again for your love!

And the winner is… plus Project 10 Pan update!

Thanks to everyone who entered my giveaway!

The winner is kalai for her detailed suggestions!!

Please email me with your mailing address!


I am re-starting my Project 10 Pan!
I actually did pretty well before going to London.

My pressed powder… the only actual “pan” I used up!

Sea Breeze deodorant
(for some reason, I had 4 bottles of deodorant…)

(one of the many things I have too many of)

Makeup protector spray
(I haven’t seen this in drugstores anymore. Maybe it was discontinued?)

B&BW Hand Sanitizer

EDM Sunlight Kaolin Powder
(again, I have too many powders)

The rules are the same:
Items included in my no-buy/Project 10 pan

  • Eyeshadows/blushes/lipsticks/lipglosses
  • Foundations/bb creams/concealers/finishing powders
  • Shampoo/hair mask/shower gels/body lotions
  • Facial masks
  • Anything that I have more than 1 of

Items not included in my Project 10 Pan/no-buy (I will be buying these since they are necessities)

  • Contact lens related items (because I’m like, um, blind without my contacts)
  • 化粧水 – basically non-alcoholic toner (this is so Japanese of me)
  • Sunscreen (because no one wants skin cancer)
  • Razors (because no one wants to be hairy either!!!)
  • Mascara/Mascara primer /Eyeliner (I religiously throw these away after 2 months, so I know I will use it up anyway)

Wish me luck!

xoxo, K
