Girly Girl Giveaway


I love being a girl. From shoes to earrings, hair styles to make up, long flowing skirts to feminine dresses, being a girl is fantastic. I rarely go a day without putting on earrings, styling my hair, or putting on a bit of makeup. In fact, the only time this grooming doesn't occur is if Wingnut is on a trip and can't appreciate his beautiful wife, or I'm sick as a dog and can't put a mascara brush to my lashes. My absolute favorite girly accessory is mascara. I love to try all the new lash blast, voluminous lashes, lashes to die for products advertised on television. My sister has lashes to die for, but I have to get mine from a tube :-( I just don't feel girly without my Mabelline or L'Oreal or Revlon or whatever my favorite lash extender is at the time.

Here's the giveaway. What is your favorite, can't do without, girly accessory? Leave it in the combox and you will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift card to my new favorite beauty supplier, Ulta.com. Ulta stocks beauty supplies galore, including fragrances, make-up, lotions, bubble bath, hair care products, etc. Entries will be accepted until 12 pm on Monday. One gorgeous winner will be drawn randomly. Check back on Monday to see if you've won.

Long live girly girls!

PS For the fellas, leave a comment for your wife. It can be her personal favorite accessory or you can leave a comment telling us what accessory you find enhances your wife's beauty and femininity.

Hey Mau,

This one is easy...it's me! Being the hideous Quasimodo that I am, everytime my wife stands near me she looks incredible. It would be like comparing a Gremlin to a BMW M class. When I introduce my friends to Jen for the first time I regularly get... "Dude, your wife is gorgeous...how did YOU land her?" Granted she has a lot of natural beauty but that is definitely enhanced when you match her up with my oddly shaped melon!

That is why I am her favorite accessory!

Love Ya Mau

Can't live without my curling iron! I really just wear make up if I'm going off base or to a get together. Heaven help me the day my curling iron is kaput. =)

I like hats best. I wear a hat whenever I can find one to match my outfit.

Am I pathetic if I can't think of something? Ummm, hair? Is that an accessory? I suppose I like eyeliner and mascara, but put it on about 2-3 times a week.

Pathetic. I quit being a girl right now.

I need mascara. It transforms my face. I should put it on to the beat of the Transfrom Ya song; it literlaly takes me from clean, young to divaaaaa

Girly girl stuff...? My favorite would have to be skirts. It's my newest thing...I try to wear them everyday. One other favoreites of mine are bracelets- I don't get to wear them nearly as much as I would like to-my lil ones tend to pull and pull till they pop and break!
God bless, Mary @ CHeerios

This is tough for me to pick just once since I will not leave the house w/out makeup. But, I am dependent on my flat iron. I do not know what I did with my hair before!

If I don't put on lipstick I feel like a washed-out, washed-up has-been! I met my hubby while working at a summer camp with little opportunity to do anything (including showering!) to make myself presentable. I would sneak back to my cabin every chance I had to look in the mirror and reapply my lipstick if needed. It worked! He married me a year and one week after the day we met! Sadly, he doesn't get to see me in makeup very often anymore. I don't have time to shop for makeup- how pathetic is that??? :)

Fun! I also like mascara - I have to wear it because my eyelashes are so blonde! My favorite accessory has to be my big gold hoop earrings. I have worn them as my sort of signature look as long as I've had my ears pierced! I've even learned how to wear them with baby grabby hands and all! Thanks Maurisa!

I don't know if this counts as "girly" anymore since some guys I know where more than the women I know..but earings. I love them. I don't get to wear them often because of my work, but I love the way the right pair can really set off the face and hair and sparkle up any look or soften it.

My Mary Kay makeup, of course. Can't live without Miracle Set skincare. Would beg, borrow or steal to get it. (Well, nothing illegal)

Godmother said...

I find that blush makes a big difference in my appearance, so I try to dab on a little to look more lively. Thanks Maurisa! God bless you!! =)

My Arbonne undereye concealer!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!! I don't spend a lot of money on makeup, so this is a splurge for me, but it works wonderfully.

Girly accessory I cannot live without? A purse. I lose stuff so easily and it keeps all my stuff in it. I prefer bigger purses too, but not too big. I need to hold my makeup bag, phone magazines, and anything else that I might need. And that is a whole lotta stuff. lol.
