Giveaway: May Is My Birthday Month! {CLOSED}

Giveaway: May Is My Birthday Month! {CLOSED}

The month of May is a very special month for me as its when I celebrate my birthday! Yay! The 14th is the date that I get to turn another year older and I thought it would be nice to share the birthday cheer with my online family which is YOU!

There is some meaning behind this giveaway and I won’t bore you with a long story but just wanted to quickly share with you. A few weeks ago I posted on my Facebook page that I was thinking of doing a birthday giveaway and one of my readers commented: isn’t a birthday about receiving gifts instead of giving them?

For me it’s a bit different. For me the gift is in giving.

You see, I haven’t had the best birthdays the last few years and I might share with you the reasons why in my upcoming birthday vacation blog post. Which also by the way – I decided to send myself off to the tropical island of Koh Samui, Thailand for my birthday (I leave next week!). I decided to take a different approach to birthdays and from now on instead of receiving something, I will be giving as that is more rewarding than anything else. See I’m already blabbering on – but that’s more or less the story, giving and not receiving.

So, I have a small beauty hamper up for grabs. It includes products from sum of my favorite brands and I’ve also stuck in some of the new Essence range products like the translucent powder and setting spray as well! It’s a real treat!

    Oh wow…what a lovely gesture and different approach to birthdays. A friend of mine….on his daughter’s birthday a year or 2 ago, she turned 3 I think and he didn’t have a party. He invited people to spend the day doing charity work and taking gifts to underprivileged children. I thought that was pretty awesome!

    I’m sure you’re going to enjoy your vacation!!

      Since I’ve been living by the motto of: “the gift is in giving” I’ve honestly seen the change in my own life. It’s the greatest reward knowing you’ve made someone’s day xoxo
