I Don't Know About You, But I'm Feelin' Twenty, Too!

I AM OFFICIALLY IN MY TWENTIES! Haha. So yes, today is my birthday. And honestly, I wanted to celebrate with you guys with two giveaways! 

BUT FIRST--some fun facts about me so you can get to know me a little bit better. Because why would you celebrate someone's birthday if you don't know them, right? 

Balloons provided by The Flair Exchange

1. I was born at 5:00am PST. So as of right now as I'm writing this post, I am already officially 20 years old!

2. Orange is my favorite color EVER, and part of the reason I love October so much (other than my birthday) is because the dominance of the color orange. I actually just mentioned this in my last post :]

3. Around this time last year, my roommate threw me a makeshift debut, a Filipino coming-of-age party meant for 18 year olds, because I couldn't have one when I actually turned 18. It was something I'd wanted since I was a little girl, but couldn't because of money. My roommate, however, was awesome and made it happen!

4. I just recently started working at Express!

5. Other than Express and technically even this blog as far as jobs go, I work for my school's newspaper as an editor, and I am a student blogger for the admissions department. 
And I'm going to stop right here with facts because I can't think of any more and I'm sure that you can't wait to get to the giveaways!

So the first giveaway is hosted my my friend Raewyn at Be a Warrior Queen and is in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer over the summer, and Lavar from a new non-profit called Not Just October, got into contact with her. 

This giveaway is not only for breast cancer awareness, but it's also to get the word out about Not Just October, a non-profit that not only brings awareness to the cancer, but it also seeks out to help families affected by it. 

The prizes for this giveaway? A Chance Band from Not Just October, a $50 gift card to Target, and a $10 gift card to Starbucks! 

The second giveaway that I'm actually hosting myself doesn't have as big a prize, but they are two smaller prizes that I purchased with my own money in appreciation for you guys and to celebrate my birthday! 

They are mini prize packages with one of the Nyx Dream Catcher palettes and one of their matte lipsticks. I own the third of the 3 Dream Catcher palettes and a couple of their matte lipsticks already, and they are some of my favorite products to use daily. 

I have reviewed the Nyx Dream Catcher Palette in Dusk til Dawn on Youtube, so if you want to know what the other two palettes are like, my video can give you an idea :]

Both of these giveaways go until the end of the month because duh, why wouldn't you celebrate my birthday for the whole month. Haha. Just kidding. But seriously, I want YOU to win!

By the way, the confetti and balloons in my photos above were all provided by The Flair Exchange. They have the CUTEST party supplies! Go check them out and tell them I sent you [;

So please enter these giveaways because I'd like you to win and entering is your way of wishing me a happy birthday. So make the birthday girl happy and enter!

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I feel like last year, being 19, was a really good age! The year brought a couple of hard lessons but overall it was an amazing year. I did some traveling, started my dream internship, and joined my sorority! :-)

    xoxo A

  4. Happy birthday! This is seriously going to be the best decade of your life! All of my favorite things have happened in my twenties. It's a glorious decade! I don't know which age way my favorite, but I've definitely been loving my 20's. I hope you have an amazing birthday. What an awesome way to celebrate. I didn't know a debut was a thing! I would love to have one of those. Would it be weird to have one when I turn 25? Haha.

  5. Happy birthday, love! My favorite age so far has been 18! It was definitely a year of changes but it was the first year I finally felt independent!
