first giveaway... and then some!

giveaways are fun, right? duhhhh!

i will start doing TWO types of giveaways on my blog...
1. cruelty-free items such as cosmetics and food stuffs
2. gift cards or items from my favorite shops around the world wide web

oh and three... i lied...
3. well.. not the same, but i will be posting giveaways from friends blogs
to give them (and myself) more exposure


my very first giveaway will be for e.l.f. nail polish!
three ever-so-lucky winners will get three different e.l.f. nail polishes courtesy of me! 
bubble gum pink, chocolate, coral, cranberry, fire coral, mango madness, medium red, metal madness, mint cream, and party peach are the colors available!



e.l.f. (eyes lips face) is an amazing company to start off with-- they are firm believers that you shouldn't have to cut off an arm and sell a kidney to be able to afford glamorous cosmetics. they believe beauty starts from within, and you can look like a rock star on any budget! no more long drives to sephora or crying over the bill at M·A·C-- e.l.f. cosmetics can be found at your local target or k-mart!

best of all? e.l.f. does not test on animals AND none of their products contain animal-derived ingredients! woohoo! the federal Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act does not require cosmetics companies to test their products for safety, nor require animal testing, so by purchasing cruelty-free cosmetics such as these, you not only save tons of bunnies, dogs, mice, rats, etc from pain and torture, but you send out a strong message to other not-so-humane companies-- WE DON'T NEED YOU OR YOUR TESTS!

for more information on animal testing, please visit http://www.peta.org/issues/Animals-Used-for-Experimentation/product-testing-toxic-tragic.aspx !




my new blog will be changing over the next week or so... don't be alarmed =] 
check back in a few days!

  1. I do try when I can, I don't want to support people who only kill/produce animals to for superficial reasons.

  2. I must admit, I don't look for certain make up that is labeled cruelty free...not out of meanness on my part...but just because I don't think about it much. I would never be mean to animals and can hardly fathom that others would hurt them (although I know it does happen).

  3. When I can, yes! I don't wear a lot of make-up, but I am very choosy!

  7. I prefer to buy products that aren't tested on animals but I have to admit I don't always check first :S It's nice when bloggers like you do the research for us - there's a better chance that more people will start buying non-animal tested products!

  9. I will ONLY buy cuelty free!! I hate to think about them doing animal test for anything. I just keep thinking about how helpless they are sitting in a tiny cage, with no life and no one to love them. Like I said, I just hate that thought. It breaks my heart.

  17. I do, I look for products with high ratings on the good guide, and on peta's list of companies that don't test on animals. I just don't think things like cosmetics or household cleaners should be tested on animals.
