Allure Magazine Summer Giveaway ~ What I Won This Year

Posted on: November 18, 2013

Every August Allure Magazine sponsors a giveaway. They give away on average 30,000 prizes. I have participated in this giveaway for the last 2 years.

Last year I won:

Zoya nail polish is Kristen (I don’t care for a person with that name so I gave away without ever using)
A large bottle of Marc Jacobs perfume Dot, which I gave to my daughter.
A pair of Sam Edelman black wedge boots, which I kept.

This year I won a Zoya nail polish in Neve. I used 2 coats with a matte topcoat. I like the color.
Unfortunately no Leaping Bunny or bunny of any kind with this brand that is supposed to be animal friendly. I emailed Zoya 10 days ago asking if they are a vegan brand, and if they are cruelty free. Guess what? No answer. Ill keep trying though.

A very large bottle of Cetaphil face wash, which Ashley uses with her Mia

And out of the blue Saturday in the mail was a Smashbox primer with acne control which again Ashley needed.


The point of this post is to encourage you to enter on-line giveaways, they work! I can attest to that!

Jilly and her Dad walking down the aisle. When asked Who supports this woman in this marriage, her Dad answered Her Mother and I do. I thought that was very sweet of him to include me in that moment.

I have never had a bad experience shopping at Nordstrom nor HAUTELOOK. I HGHLY RECOMMEND BOTH STORES.

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
