Day 10: Bijou Makeup Set – 12 Days of Bijou Giveaway

I can’t believe it’s Day 10!

This giveaway has gone by so fast and I wish I thought about it some more and made it like a month long thing. Or just a mega week long giveaway for each week in December. Although that seems like a great idea for my birthday month or blogiversary in July…..

Either way, I do really appreciate you as a reader, subscriber, and follower. You motivate me to do better in 2018 – to write more, do more style posts, more giveaways, more chatting with you all about my life. I’m not a very public person. I find snap chatting or insta story-ing my life on a daily basis may be too dull and too personal.

Then again, I’m not so sure. Because I’ve gotten quite a few messages from readers would like to see more and learn more about me. However, I’m honestly just scared at this point. My life isn’t a pretty thing all the time. What you don’t see is the endless hours I spend working away on small tasks anyone could do within minutes. What you don’t see is my lagging energy levels – or how breakfast takes up a good chunk of time trying to get myself to stay awake. What you don’t see is my eyes half of the day – makeup free, lenses not in (I’m legally blind without them). and the pain that a bad eye day may cause.

I do really hope 2018 will be better. And I do hope I can show you more of it. But for now, I have to gain enough strength and that means being behind the scenes a while doing posts like these in hopes someone can relate.

For Day 10, I wanted to give something that has helped me with my confidence – especially starting a blog.


Day 10 Prize – Bijou Makeup Set


I feel the most empowered with makeup. I feel beautiful with makeup. And although I do agree that beauty comes from within, unless you’ve been in a similar situation than me, you don’t know how devastating 3rd degree burns are to your skin and self esteem.

I use makeup because it helps me heal. It makes me feel like I did before my illness. Makeup helps me connect to other people because they see past my scars. My burn scars are still visible with makeup, but the creativity allows me to be as glamorous as someone without scarring.

  • Are you into straw purses? At first, I was not into the straw circle purse trend, but now this has become my signature accessory. I get so many question & compliments on this purse so here are my answers:
▪️You have to travel light because this does open on its own if you carry too much
▪️Withstands the rain pretty well - so I will be taking this into fall
▪️To add a french touch, tie a silk scarf around the handle 💕
You can find this purse (plus similar ones) under $100 in the link in my bio or via by following me on the app #LTKunder50 #LTKunder100  #LTKstyletip  #LTKsalealert #liketkit
  • Where can I get one of those jobs where they pay you to stay at different resorts every week and take pretty pictures? Asking for a friend 😂

  • QUESTION: Is Fashion Week relevant anymore? 👗🤔 Do you like seeing Fashion Week posts from bloggers?
The other day @jaceyduprie asked her followers a really thought provoking question about whether or not she should attend Fashion Week this year. This amazing post made me ponder my own decision on whether to go or not. A lot of bloggers are asking this question to themselves and to their readers. I'm not alone in thinking: is it even relevant anymore?
I went back to my journalism days to explore this topic in great detail and present arguments for all sides of the FW dilemma.

  • Now I turned this @galmeetsglam dress Victorian 😂 Jk, the house is Victorian. Me? I’m just here to show off all the pretty patterns 🌺🌸
Speaking of patterns, I’d love to know: is there ever such a thing as too much floral? I don’t see many people wearing floral patterns anymore. Thoughts?
This dress is still available and linked here or in the link in my bio ❤️ #liketkit #LTKstyletip #LTKsalealert #thepetitebijou
