Since the last minute of the last readathon in January, I’ve been counting down to the next one. And now that we’re a little more than a month away from 24in48 (Summer ’16) Edition, it’s time to take this countdown public. The next readathon will be on July 23-24, 2016! Officially, we’re 40 days away from the start of 24in48, and I personally could not be more excited.
If you’re new to 24in48, this is the basic gist: Beginning at 12:01am on Saturday morning and running through 11:59pm on Sunday night, readers read for 24 hours out of that 48 hour period. You can split that up however you’d like: 20 hours on Saturday, 4 hours on Sunday; 12 hours each day; six4 hour sessions with 4 hour breaks in between; whatever you’d like.
And that’s it. The format never changes but it’s always an adventure.

Hello everyone, I hope you had a great weekend! Today I have great news and that is I reached 100 followers last week here on WordPress and I decided to host a giveaway! I would like to thank everyone who is following my blog here and on bloglovin’ – thank you so much, you are awesome and make my day, every day! I honestly cannot express how grateful and happy I am, so let’s go straight to giveaway now!
To thank you I decided to make a giveaway and the item I chose is…
TOO FACED LE GRAND CHATEAU
The set contains three beautiful eye shadow, blush and bronzer palettes with a total of 18 eyeshadows and a deluxe size of the famous Better Than Sex Mascara, all in a dollhouse box. The set already got great reviews and it’s so gorgeous that I was lovestruck as soon as I saw it in Sephora!

Pop on over to Beauty Lifestyle Chicago and check out the fab giveaway! Good luck to you all!
Being a mom of a toddler on the brink of his terrible two’s is quite a challenge on it’s own. It leaves me with an entertaining but impatient audience as I get ready in the morning therefore I am always on the look out for quick and easy makeup products that are effortless to apply but look stunning and complex.
These Chanel Limited Edition Stylo Eyeshadow Sticks truly fill the brief. It is a twist-up, water-based eyeshadow that’s lightweight, long-wearing, and cooling when it touches the skin. Since the shadow is water based they do not grease up and slide around in a hot climate, instead they leave a minty cool sensation on the skin when applied. The formula remains creamy and easy to blend for about 5 minutes before it dries and become absolutely budgeproof for the next 8-10 hours. I love that these come in a convenient twist-up…

I had a message on Goodreads waiting for me this morning. It was from an author offering me an incentive to basically hurry up and read and review her book. The incentive? $50 or books from my wish list on Amazon. Awesome, right? Not exactly. There’s a catch … She wants a 4-5 star rating and glowing review of her book. I would happily take the offer and give her that rating, and that review she so wants, IF I genuinely thought the book was that amazing but it’s not and I am not in the business of giving dishonest reviews just to earn a bit of cash. So, thank you, but no thank you.
I know we would all love to get paid for something we love doing but not like this! I would be potentially misleading someone into thinking it’s a great read only for them to be really disappointed and I’m not willing to do that. I have morals and I’ll stick by them, thank you very much! Now, if I’d been offered money to give an honest review then I would have happily obliged.
The fabulous Rachael has an awesome giveaway. Go check it out!
I am, a bit of a donut. If you remember back to my Makeup Revolution Haul at the start of last month, you’ll remember that I had a load of free items to giveaway that came free with my order. I placed, bar one item, the same order twice as I accidentally deleted something from my cart to qualify for all the free items when you spent over a certain amount, with the intention of sending them back. I just opened my drawer to discover, that I hadn’t sent these back – and it was now too late.
This however is good news for you.
