[CLOSED] The Mod Mermaid's 1st Birthday + Giveaway!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear bloggy, Happy Birthday to you!


Morning, afternoon, or good evening to you all! I'm a big ball of energy today because there's something so amazing at seeing your blog reach a full year! I honestly can't believe that a year ago today I sat down and wrote my first post. (It was my IMATS experience and haul post, haha!) It's exciting because I'm the type of person who gets bored with things quite quickly and once I get bored I just stop doing it, but not with my blog! I feel like I should have made cupcakes or a cake or something for such an occasion! Maybe I'll throw a party and have all the #bbloggers celebrate, haha, imagine! I'm so proud of my blog and little space on the internet. I'm happy that I found a hobby that I enjoy doing so much that let's me play with make up, write about something I love and interact with lovelies all over the country and even the world! No one in my personal life really cares too much about make up (not like we do!) so it's great to have found and stuck with a fantastic community like the #bbloggers. (I promised myself I wouldn't cry! )': )

In honor of my blog's first birthday and to treat all my lovely readers because I'm so thankful for each and every one of you and the comments you leave I've decided to host a giveaway! Now as I am without a job the prize shan't be as extravagant as I wish I could make it but what I will do is up the ante by having two winners! Oh yeah! The first winner will receive a MAC lipstick of their choice (cause we all love a MAC lipstick, don't we?!)  and the second winner will receive a Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid lipstick of their choice (I love brights, and I will make you love them too!) On top of that, this giveaway will be international! I've never had a giveaway that wasn't international because it doesn't seem fair to exclude such a wide part of my audience! 

You all know how this works! I shall leave you with this widget and just make sure to record your entries and come back for the ones you can do once a day as that'll increase your chances! There are only two mandatory entries you must complete, and you must complete both!

1. Follow this blog via GFC (only follow if you plan to stick around! none of this temporary following, it's not nice!)
2. Leave a comment below telling me :: What are your favorite blog posts to read/write? 

The rest are optional, you don't have to do them, but feel free to so that your chances to win are increased! The giveaway will run from April 19, 2013 to May 19, 2013. A whole month to enter and remember there will be TWO WINNERS! Also, please make sure that if you live with your parents that you let them know you've entered because chances are you won't tell them, you'll win, I'll send the package and you'll be questioned about this mysterious lady sending you gifts! Just avoid it, haha, and give them a heads up!

I will select the winners 1- 2 days after the giveaway closes. If I don't get a response in 48 hours a new winner will be chosen and keep getting chosen until such a time that a winner responds (how legal). Also, to the winners please give me about a week or two to send out your prize. I have to wait to hear back what colors you'd like, get to a MAC store and then a drugstore, and then get to the post which might take a little time!

Again, thank you all so so so much! I really appreciate all the love and support you've given my blog just by following, coming to read, leaving a comment, or even sharing my posts with others! I love you guys (cue cheesy music!) and here's to another year for The Mod Mermaid *clink* 

a Rafflecopter giveaway


Happy entering! May the odds be ever in your favor ;)
