Hello Everyone!

So, we’ve finally reached the end :-‘( of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways event and I’m quite thrilled (LOL) as planning this event was pretty hectic what with all of the posts and things and getting all the items together PLUS my own Christmas to – do list, but it has actually been a lot of fun to do besides the stress of it as I find I work quite well under pressure and have managed to get all the posts out without too many snags. PLUS I really have enjoyed seeing all of the amazing comments and tweets, re-tweets, and everything it has been tons of fun and very exciting for me all at the same time so thank you so much to everyone who has participated thus far and if not, you still have time to participate in this last hoorah giveaway!

Today’s prize is the KORRES Goddess Beauty Color Collection which I personally picked up from Sephora. I thought it was only right I should be the last sponsor as it’s my giveaway and all and I hope it’s just as amazing as the others, if not a bit more so, you know, because it’s from me 😉 .

I went with this lovely gift set because it was within my budget and because I love KORRES and I have been raving on about their primers since the inception of this blog so I thought it was pretty fitting!

Also, if you want to know the winners of this giveaway, check back in 3 days and the post for who won which prizes will be up!

Anyhow, I hope you’ll all sign up for this last giveaway and I hope you have a lovely holiday, whatever you have planned – stay safe and happy.

8 Beauty Shopping Sites To Check Out + Some New Finds…

NuboNau – A natural and organic beauty site  based in the USA that sells many brands including Dr. Hauschka, ILIA, Juice Beauty, Lavera, Madara, Pai, Patyka, and more.

Beauty Habit – An extremely luxe website that I absolutely adore! They carry any number of brands you’ve never heard of and many you know and love. I love that they carry really amazingly luxe European fragrances as well as other high end and mid range brands waiting to be discovered! They recently got a hold of the Konjac Sponge Company as well which has been pretty hard to find in the USA so far, even online! Check out this post where I wrote about some products from Beauty Habit – here!

Imomoko – An Asian beauty website that carries TONS of Asian brands from Paul & Joe, Naruko, Lunasol, SK-II and more…

Etsy – If you haven’t jumped on this bandwagon yet, please do! They have so much to offer by way of natural and organic beauty, seriously, and I’ve seen shops that are based anywhere from the USA, UK to New Zealand and Australia. I’m a fan of these shops especially – Naturallogic, Claribel Skincare, HM Organics, and Upstate Herb Works (mentioned this one here!).

Beautorium – Off the beaten path, Beautorium offers some great natural and organic brands like Revolution Organics, Saaf Skincare, Melvita Skincare, and Suki Cosmetics.

Rainwater Botanicals – I always love a chance to mention Rainwater Botanicals! I wrote about them here, if you’d like to see some of my favorites from this brand! Based in Washington state, USA, this natural and organic brand offers a variety of skincare, body care and natural fragrance products at extremely affordable prices. Thought you couldn’t afford organic beauty? How wrong you were, my friend!

Living Nature – I recently had the pleasure of reviewing some of the Living Nature products (see the review- here!) and I couldn’t be more happy with them! I’m really eager to try more of their line, especially their cosmetics and body care products!

True Renu – I’ve been shopping at this one for ages. They carry all the Asian beauty brands that can be difficult to find such as HABA, Komenuka Bijin, Nuka Naturals, SeiSei, and Tsubaki.
