Short 'n Chic Sweetest Little Giveaway

Hi everyone. Happy Monday! Happy May! Can you all believe that it's May already? Time has been flying for me lately. I promised on Friday that if I reached 300 followers over the weekend I would post my next giveaway today. I'm making good on my word. Thank you for getting me to 300, everyone. I don't want to get mushy right now, but I'm sure you all know that it means a lot to me. I've been waiting to do this giveaway for what seems like ages. Wanna know what you'll win?

Four [unused] "Limited Edition" Maybelline Sweet Thing polishes

A fun purple flower from the H&M Garden Collection. I wear these flowers a lot, mostly in my hair, which I think I have mentioned. You can do lots of cute things with these, though--wear them in your hair, on your bag, on your sweater, whatever. I just love them. This one is brand new and has never been stuck onto my head, obviously.

And here is everything, all in a cute little row.

If you win this giveaway you'll receive:
-->Four (4) Maybelline Sweet Thing polishes: Goody Plum Drop, Pie in the Sky, Sweetie Pie and Minty (I have linked each one of these to my posts about them; if you want to know what these polishes looked like on me give the names a clickity-click; I have my own bottles of these, though. Again, the ones you'll win are unused)
-->One (1) just for fun flower from H&M

Now, what have you got to do to win? This is just like my other giveaways: easy to enter. Here's what you have to do.
1. Be a follower. This is very simple. On the righthand sidebar you'll see a button that says Follow. Click it. You must be a follower through blogger in order to win this prize. If I pick your name out of my sequined fedora and you are not a follower through blogger, I will pick someone else. K?
2. Leave a comment on this post with your entries.
For one entry I will simply need you to leave your e-mail address as well as why you're looking forward to summer. I like asking fun little questions because it makes the entries easier and funner to read.
3. For an extra entry blog about this giveaway. You can write about the giveaway, you can post a picture in your sidebar, whatever. As long as my giveaway is on your blog in some way I will count it as an extra entry. Please leave a link to your blog in the comments so that I can find your post.

That's it! To quickly reiterate, all you have to do is follow and leave a comment with your e-mail address and why you're looking forward to summer. For an extra entry, blog about this giveaway and provide me with a link. Easy-peasey, right?

You have until Friday, 14 May at 11:59pm EST to enter. I will announce the winner on Saturday, 15 May. I will choose a winner by literally picking names out of a hat so that everything is truly random. EDIT: I forgot to mention that this giveaway is open to everyone, international followers too.

Before I go I'll show you my nails from this weekend, just for funsies.

Two coats of OPI Tickle My France-y, one of my favorite polishes of all time. I should really concoct some sort of top ten favey-faves list, shouldn't I? Anyway, I love this. I think if I had to pick two polishes out of my entire stash to keep, it'd be this one and China Glaze Wagon Trail. It's pretty similar to Rescue Beauty Lounge Grunge, just a bit pinker. I'll do a comparison sometime. In my first post ever on this blog I mentioned how much I love Tickle My France-y and now I'm finally showing it to you on me. I wear it quite often, I just don't usually photograph it.

Alright, that's all for today. Remember to enter my Sweetest Little Giveaway. If you're fuzzy on the rules refer to my instructions above or e-mail me. I will remind you to enter the giveaway in every post that I do up to 14 May, alright? Have a great day, you guys!


  1. YAY congrats on 300! =)

  2. Tickle My-France-y is also in my top ten all time. It's perfect on me and applies like a dream. <3

    So you have 300 followers already? You finally didn't need me to dismember my body, ah ah.

    Ok do we enter here? Then I'm a follower (obviously - you might know that) and I'm looking forward summer to visit my best friend. Let's see if we can do it, I want to spend some days around him, the time of my birthday. I also want to go to the beach - I haven't gone in years - it's too long for me. What else? Tons of things but I don't want to bug your comment box. ;)

    I'm looking forward to summer because I always get depressed in the spring, I think spring is highly over rated and I just want to get it over with. Summer on the other hand is more uplifting, the weather is mostly nice and hot and you can go to the beach and play with the waves in the sea - which I love. :)

  15. Congrats on getting over 300. You deserve it cause not only does your blog have a great name (I gid short nails) but I look forwards to your posts.

    I am a follower (as lisa) and I added your giveaway to my sidebar on my blog

    I am looking forwards to the summer because simply, it means I get to use polish not just on my fingers but on my toes as well. Flipflops means pedicures which means I get to buy and use twice the amount of polish as in December.

    It's actually going to be winter soon here in Australia, so would it be alright if I talk about it instead? ^^ Plus, I prefer winter over summer <3. To me, I get to dress up more in winter, this means scarves and coats and of course, boots! Can't forget about them lol. And then there's the lovely cosy feeling I get when it's freezing at night, but so lovely and warm in bed under the covers. Ummm, that's all I can think about right now ^^;;.
