20 000 Views Giveaway!

Ladies and gents, tonight this blog reached 20 000 views. YAY! It's so exciting to know that it's reached so many people since September of last year, wow. It's awesome to know that just over 6 months (my first post was uploaded on September 6) this blog has been viewed over 20 000 times from people across the world. 

Anyway, enough of that nonsense, you're here to win a competition! Back in January I uploaded a haul which included the Bobbi Brown book 'Make Up Manual; For Everyone From Beginner to Pro.'
I really like this book. It's full of tips, tricks and theory that's divided up in twelve detailed chapters. 
  • Chapter 1: Makeup Artistry 
  • Chapter 2: Equipment
  • Chapter 3: Skin
  • Chapter 4: Face
  • Chapter 5: Lips
  • Chapter 6: Eye
  • Chapter 7: Ten Step Guide to Perfect Makeup
  • Chapter 8: Special Makeup Applications
  • Chapter 9: Artistry
  • Chapter 10: Essential Equipment for the Professional
  • Chapter 11: Advanced Makeup Applications
  • Chapter 12: Memorable Makeup Moments & Legends 

Why am I telling you all about this book? Because I'm giving one away! How do you win? Keep reading!

  15. I'm following via GFC as Jasmine1485 :)

    I like reading hauls (nosey or just curious? I prefer curious of course) and I love that you're in Australia so I can actually buy the products you review. It gets frustrating to find out about an awesome product and then see that it's only available in the US or Europe. I'd like to see more hints and tips, I'm a bit of a makeup beginner.

  16. I love following what you’re using and getting your spin on things. Always guaranteed a good read! Keep entertaining us; you’re doing a great job! Here’s to 200,000 views!

  17. From Chloe via Facebook: My favourite part of Born to Buy is the honest, complete descriptions of products. I know Sophie's opinions are 100% truthful and she's not afraid to say she doesn't like something! Her approval cannot be bought, which is great! This is why I know when I buy something she positively reviewed, I won't be disappointed! I'd love to see more tutorial videos!

  18. Love the detailed reviews, really gives me an honest opinion of whether I should buy something or not! Also I would love to see more makeup application videos :) Ashleigh
