As my way to say Thank you!

UPDATE: We have our winner – Congratulations AILEEN of Ajman! 🙂


This blog was a result of depression (depression might be a strong word to use and people who has been medically diagnosed of it might hit back but I know you get it).
I was sad and depressed because of work.
I was working for a very good company but I wasn’t happy. It’s not that I don’t like my colleagues because they are honestly fab and I miss our camaraderie actually, but the depression stems from the fact that I’m bored on what I’m doing.
You know how it feels  just going through the routine – wake up, commute, work, eat, sleep and the next day is no different. I felt like I don’t have a purpose. I’m am totally bored of life.

I knew that the only person who can help me is myself. My issue can be cured by a change of mindset. If I start thinking that life is beautiful (because it actually is!) then I can get out of that hole.
I can’t really recall the exact reason why I thought that blogging is a good platform to release my anxiety. I might have been inspired by someone so whoever you are, thank you!

First few months of blogging was exhilarating! I felt like this is what I am supposed to be doing all my life.

It’s been months since I celebrated this blog’s first anniversary and I mentioned about doing a thank you giveaway but didn’t get the chance to work on it.
But as they always say – better late than never!
So here’s my way of saying thank you to everyone who takes interest on this little space of mine.

And I want to be a rebel. If there’s one thing you need to know about me is I’d like to be different. I don’t like fads and I will consciously not do something just because everyone is doing it.
You know how some run competitions and ask you to follow 8 social media accounts, tweet, Instagram, share and tag 673 of your friends. It’s quite irritating.
If there’s a competition I really like to join but has more than 3 steps to participate then I never bother.

So for my thank you giveaway I will not ask for anything. I will not even ask you to like my pages (although that would be nice). Since I bought these products using my own moolah, I don’t owe anyone anything. You just need to let me know your name and email address because how can I contact you, right.

And to make it really exclusive to my readers, I will not post this on my Facebook or Instagram account. Only those who really takes time to read this will know of the give-away. If you want to share it to your friends then I won’t stop you because hey sharing is caring.

One more very special thing, since I know some of my readers are located all around the world, I will have this competition open to everyone. Sure, I’ll spend more money on having the items shipped but this is my way of saying thank you to EVERYONE. No matter where you are.

You love me now? I love you too!!!

So, what’s inside the package?

Bioderma Beauty products

I love this brand. How I wish they will contact me one day and hire me as their brand ambassador because I keep on mentioning about them and say how fab their products are. Can I tell you a secret? My underarm suddenly darkens either because of hormones or the deodorant I’m using and I am so bothered!!! I started using Bioderma’s White Objectives serum on my face and I thought why not apply it every night on my underarm too and you know what, I noticed that the area has lighten. Amazing!

And their make-up remover doesn’t dry my skin. Unlike other removers where you can feel your face tightens, Bioderma products don’t dry my face. So I’ll share these amazing products with you.

All these Bioderma products has retail value of almost AED 1200. You’re welcome 🙂As my way to say Thank you!
