Happy 4 Year Blogiversary (Giveaway!)

Hi friends!

This week, along with my 28th birthday, was my 4 year blogiversary! On August 4, 2008, I wrote my first official post on this site and haven’t looked back.


I remember when this blog was a wee little Wearing Mascara. A toddler… just a little girl. Back then, I really had no focus (ha, wait, I still don’t!) and did it primarily to record my thoughts on life and fun. Just like people do, this blog grew. It grew with me through graduate school, jobs, relationships, moving, etc. This blog has been a touch stone where I could always come back. I could recreate myself, educate myself, and reflect on the events of my life. It’s really amazing how much you can learn about yourself after you blog about something. Whether it’s the act of writing something out or how you respond to a negative or so-so comment, it’s all a learning experience. Everyday, I am so thankful for social media and what this blog has turned into. I’ve met so many wonderful people via the internet and in real life through this blog.

As my blog turns 4 years old (28 in human years – like me!), I want to thank you so much for reading. Whether you’ve been here since the beginning or just started reading, THANK YOU! As cliche as it sounds, I truly write this blog for me, but there is a part of me that writes it for you too. And for us. I write it to connect with people and to make new friends, both local and far away!

So, in my opinion, blogiversary’s are much more fun when a giveaway is involved. Especially when it’s a really sweet giveaway!

One of my favorite companies, Murad, has offered to giveaway their beloved Acne Complex Kit, which is perfect for the humid summer months!

The kit is valued at $105 and you can buy it for $60 from the Murad website. It includes:

- Clarifying Cleanser

- Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel

- Skin Perfecting Lotion

- Acne Spot Treatment

I really believe in this product and I know I’m not the only one, read the reviews!. I’ve been using the cleanser consistently over the past few months (thanks to the generous folks at Murad) and my skin has never felt or looked better. It really makes me feel refreshed and, ironically, I look forward to washing my face everyday.

How to win:

- To win this giveaway, please leave a comment on this post telling me you want to win.

- For a extra entries, please tweet the following as often as you want to, just leave me a separate comment each time. (Feel free to tweet a variation of it, just include @wearingmascara, @muradcares, and the link to this post.):

“I just entered to win the Acne Complex Kit from @wearingmascara and @muradcares. You should too: http://wp.me/p1zV1e-1ov.”

- You have until Sunday, August 12 at 11:59 pm EST to enter. The winner will be announced on Monday, August 13.

GOOD LUCK and thanks for reading! :-)
