CHAT/UPDATE: Giveways, Christmas Gift Guides and Blog Sales

Hi everyone,

I really hope you're all doing well. I just wanted to check in today to let you guys know that I will be uploading a few exciting posts in the coming day/week. My 1 million page views (I still cannot believe it) giveaway has been promised to you a few times now, I know, but it definitely is coming. Every time I think I've acquired/bought everything I think of something else which stalls the launch date. This weekend I'm setting myself the absolutely overwhelming task of photographing everything so, at this stage, expect to see it launch sometime next week (subject to change). I am also really excited to be collaborating with a few blogging friends on another giveaway which will be launching in a few weeks. Get ready for the festive season, lovely people.

I've been wanting to know your stand on Christmas gift guides. Do you like them? Do you use them? Do you think they're a waste of time. At this point I'm thinking of doing two gift guides (him, her, under $20 and for the beauty lover) but I'd honestly love your feedback. Surprisingly, Christmas gift guides can be really time consuming and I don't want to put the time and effort in if it won't be of benefit to people. 

Lastly, I will be hosting a blog beauty sale very soon. As a beauty blogger and obsessor lover, I have managed to acquire a fair amount of beauty products, make up especially, and it's honestly just not feasible that I finish them all. Seriously, it just isn't possible and things are just going to waste. In the past I have considered hosting a sale like this but not wanted to part with any of my beauty bits but now I'm ready. At this point I am just thinking that I'll be selling some make up products, however I may throw some skin and haircare in once I have a little look in my back up drawer over the weekend. Of course, I won't be giving anything that can't be cleaned appropriately and so far I plan on featuring brands like YSL, NARS, the Balm, Benefit and Essence. That is not all, of course, but it's the products I can think of without even looking in my collection. I'm still working out a few details like where I'll be hosting the sale, which is proving to be a lot more complicated that I thought. I'm currently deciding between Facebook, my blog and my online store. If you have a preference, please let me know. Make things easier for me!

Other than that, things are pretty good for me. I've recently been made redundant at work which definitely isn't ideal but there's not much that can be done. Oh the joys of working in the community services sector. I will finish on Christmas Eve so please don't expect any massive hauls for a while. This lady needs to save, unfortunately. Also, one of my favourite people in the whole world gets back from 6 months overseas in just over a week and I could not be more excited. 

I think that's about all I have to update you all on today but, I have to say, I like the idea of these kinds of posts every now and then. I like being able to tell you guys what's going on in this crazy head of mine. For more of my bizarre thoughts, please follow my Facebook page. I really love sharing my random thoughts, links to things I love (so many Gilmore Girls buzz feed pages) and talk to you guys about anything and everything. Join the madness

What's going on for you at the moment? Now that you know about my life, I'd love to get little updates from you in return. 

Don't forget to let me know what you think about Christmas gift guides and the blog sale also!
