[CLOSED] Giveaway, Just Because & 400th Post!

I have been hemming and hawing over giveaways on Jeweled Thumb. I'm sure you've noticed. First I thought I would have one for my 1 year anniversary but then I thought that I didn't really properly start blogging till the fall of 2009. I thought I would have one at 300 followers but then it wasn't the greatest of times. Now it seems nothing really has happened except for this being my 400th entry. To be quite honest, I never thought I'd last this long. I am easily distracted, my life is a bit crazy, I get sick often and let's be honest, when you herniate 2 of your discs, how much more should you be expected to do than work full time (and of course physical therapy 3x a week)?

But guys, I've put this off long enough and I do appreciate each and every one of you who takes the time out of your day to read this little blog. So a giveaway it is.

The Rules
1. This is a giveaway for my followers, so you need to be one.
2. Worldwide
3. I'm doing it a little different this time, please leave your e-mail address and I will contact you. If you don't respond within 48 hours, I will pick a new winner, no exceptions. I will also post the winner's name on Jeweled Thumb in case my e-mail goes to your spam folder.
4. You must be over 18 to enter.
5. This giveaway will close October 22nd 2010 at 11:59 EST which is exactly 1 month prior to my 27th birthday!

1 entry:
Leave a comment with (1) your name (2) your e-mail (3) something you want to see on Jeweled Thumb

+ 1 entry
follow me on twitter if you haven't already (please comment when you do and if you already do) and retweet the giveaway... thingy - not done yet since the post isn't a post right now

So a maximum of 2 entries per person. Please only leave 2 comments per person on this post so it's not impossible to track!

And what are you going to win? Well, I'm at work *shh* and I don't have the prizes in front of me, but I will update the post tonight with the bounty (posting it now so I don't forget and lose out on #400!). All I know right now is the retail value will likely exceed $200 USD. So there ya go. Good luck!


Bounty below!
  • ELF Studio Line Brush Set
  • Stila Color Collection & Clutch
  • 7 various Bare Escentuals eyeshadows/blush (smoky diamond, cognac diamond, flawless diamond, rose diamond, harmony, purist, soft focus glamour)
  • 2 24/7 Urban Decay liners (Zero & Honey)
  • Benefit EyeBright
  • Clean Petites Fragrance set
  • Milani Bare To Wear & Dress Maker
  • and finally, Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure

I'd just like to see anything that's of good/great quality, that's well, on the lower spectrum of the price ranges x) I'm really not in the position to afford anything pricey so I appreciate modest reviews of products from places like drug stores and the such!

I would love to see more of products that you would NOT buy again! Although positive reviews are very helpful, I find that not as many are willing to admit when a product just didn't live up to it's hype-and I love knowing that I shouldn't waste my money on something.
