"Pay It Forward" Giveaway!

As you know, a little while back I was lucky enough to win a GIVEAWAY from Gabby, she wrote, here ( I won a Sephora gift certificate which I'll blog about my purchases soon) AND although I didn't win the contest over at Gals in the know, she gifted me a present for being her first "non" friend follower way back when. What a sweetheart! If you haven't checked out her's fabulous!

What she gifted to me: Stila shadow and blush compact

She wrapped it with fashion magazine paper and this pretty stone. I took off the paper before I had my camera out so I just placed the stone around the makeup compact for the photo above. What a neat idea she had. So fun to unwrap!

Isn't the eye shadow pretty? There are two shimmer nude colors and a brown shadow along with a pink blush. I love it! (Btw, don't mind the paint on my hand, I was painting the kitchen earlier that day and couldn't get all the paint off!)

Thank you Gals in the know for giving me this super cute Stila makeup. I absolutely LOVE Stila products so this was such a TREAT!

Since I've been so LUCKY, I want to PAY IT FORWARD!
The Underfunded Heiress 1st Giveaway: Whoo hoo!

I recently blogged about cute bikini cover ups here. One of my favorites was the Victoria Secret ruffle cover up dress. I bought it recently but because I think it's SO lovely, I'm going to give it away! (But maybe I'll have to buy another one, so whoever wins may have to be matching twins with me).

It's a size small but I think it runs big. It seems like more of a medium to me. I love the ruffle top and it's really soft and light (to see the details of the dress click here).

Don't you love it?! Don't you want it?!
