6 months blogaversary Giveaway (Closed)

GIVEAWAY Dior Rouge Baume in 558 Lili // Ella Was Here

I am so excited to be finally hosting a giveaway on Ella Was Here. I will be blogging for 6 months on  27 December 2014, which seems like the perfect time to host my first giveaway. I never thought I would love blogging so much! It has been such an amazing experience and I cannot wait to see what the next few months will be like blogging-wise.

I will not go too much into detail explaining why I love blogging and what I have learned the past few months as I will be doing a more elaborate post on that the 27th. So without further ado, on to the giveaway!

ON THE BLOG: Dior Rouge Baume in the shade Lili (558)

Dior Rouge Baume in 558 Lili GIVEAWAY // Ella Was Here

I am so super excited to be giving away this Dior lipstick! It is a moisturizing lipstick in a soft natural-looking pink. It is a hydrating and non-sticky lipstick. You will not need to wear a lip balm with it! I obviously cannot swatch this, as I do not have one myself and I do not want to touch yours but you can find a more detailed look at the Rouge Baume in the shade Lili here.

You can enter using the Rafflecopter widget at the end of the post. There is only one obligatory entry: comment and tell me about something (or someone) that makes you smile! I want my blog to be a place for happy thoughts and cheerfulness. So I feel like this is the right way to do this giveaway . Do not forget to read the giveaway rules first!

ON TWITTER: Elizabeth Arden Single Eyeshadow in shade Truffle

Elizabeth Arden Eyeshadow in Truffle GIVEAWAY // Ella Was Here

I will also be giving away an Elizabeth Arden single eyeshadow in the shade 06 Truffle on twitter. Truffel is a brown matte shade and I would probably use this as a base or for a lighter eyeshadow look. The brown itself is pretty light but I believe it is suitable for every skintype and it will give you lots of options to combine with other eyeshadows! You can get a closer look here.

I will post a picture of this eyeshadow on my twitter and you will just need to follow me and retweet that picture.

    Whenever I see someone reading on the train, bus or just in general I smile. It means that the art of reading is not on the brink of extinction. I want people to read more and to enjoy reading. It’s such a great escape, but still people rather watch TV and open a book and be creative themselves.
