Jayne’s Birthday Giveaway!

Today is Canada Day and also the day I turn 29 aka “one more year of being able to wear Aritizia booty shorts!”. I wanted to celebrate by doing a giveaway to say thank you for following, commenting and most importantly, for the amazing friendships that have come about! Over the Memorial Day weekend, the Balm website had an AMAZING promotion for the Shady Lady palettes – 3 palettes for the price of 1! One palette is $39.50 USD so getting three was just a crazy deal, but I realized I really didn’t need three palettes so why not give one away?!

In my Birthday Giveaway one lucky person will win: the Balm Shady Lady Palette Vol.3, Color Club Wing Fling and Daisy Does It from this summer’s Take Wing Collection and The Body Shop’s Beautifying Oil in Cocoa Butter! See below for a closer look at the Shady Lady palette!

  8. Honestly I think my fave gift of all time was when I went camping for my birthday. Just having all my friends around for the weekend and singing Happy Birthday around a lemon meringue pie left me with lots of fond memories.

    We have close birthdays (mine is June 29). Happy Birthday to you and many more! (you can wear the Aritizia shorts well into your 30's :)

    1. That is an amazing birthday "present"! When we get older, life gets so busy and it's so hard to get everyone together so when everyone rallies together to celebrate YOU, it really means a lot. I also LOVE lemon meringue pie!

      Happy belated birthday to you!! We have very close birthdays! I'll see how I look by the time 30 rolls around and we'll see about the booty shorts!

  10. My best birthday gift was probably the one I got on my 18th. My boyfriend at the time bought me a dozen roses and was waiting outside of school for me when I went out to my car. He then took me to our 'spot' by the river, stopping to get sushi on the way. It was chilly, being March, so we spent a lot of time snuggling :3 Good memories.

  11. Happy Birthday ! Thank you for this great giveaway. My favorite birthday gift was a pair of pearl earrings offered by my mother and sister last year. I think jewelry is always a great gift because it makes you think of the people you love when you wear it. :)

    My favourite present of all time might be the bottle of Chloe perfume my boyfriend got me last year... but I have a hard time remembering birthday gifts!

  32. Awww, man. This is a tough one... I come from a family that didn't celebrate birthdays... my husband isn't much of a gift giver. I really have to think it's when *I* threw *myself* a 12th birthday party and got a pet gerbil from one of my friends. :) I make up for it all now by spoiling myself lol.

    Thanks for the chance! <3

  47. My favourite birthday gift was when I turned 25 ( 2 yrs ago) when I got a microwave for my family. I've never remember owning a microwave and so my friend thought that we were living in poverty when he heard that and gave us a microwave. But, now that I think about it, the coolest gift I got was bringing one of my best friends to Christ. A year before my 20th birthday, I asked God to convert her so she wouldn't have to live in constant fear of her parent's gods. Exactly on my birthday a year later on Sept 19, she got baptised. I think that was the coolest birthday gift ever.

  48. Happy Birthday! Did you order theBalm product from their website? Did you need to pay shipping or duty/taxes since it's being shipped from the States to Canada? I have been thinking about ordering something from their website and am not sure about shipping...

    Replies
    1. Thanks! Yes, I ordered from the website and I did not have to pay duty or taxes. I have ordered twice from theBalm and have never had an issue. It's free worldwide shipping when you buy $100 or more, if not it's $40.
