rays of sunshine giveaway

This giveaway has now ended.


So.
I thought it would be tremendously cool to do another giveaway, and this time with two prizes!
As Summer has arrived, my thoughts always turn to sun, hot weather, more sun, more hot weather, and more sun.
New Zealand summer's are too beautiful and English summers are...not as beautiful.
But, in light of yesterday's perfection and the beautiful, yellow, bright sunshine:
I announce the Rays of Sunshine Giveaway!

rays of sunshine giveaway


The prizes are:
1) Sponsored by the beautifully talented Katie Lloyd at her shop MommyMakes.
Any 8" x 10" print from her shop (worth $25)!

{Any person who takes pictures of hot air balloon totally rocks. 
I LOVE these pictures. SO MUCH.}


2) Sponsored by the amazing Ceclia from naked elements.
A Citrus Set of three (worth $22)!
Lemon Eyeshadow, Lime Eyeshadow, and a Grapefruit Blush.
{these mineral eye-shadows and blush are A-M-A-Zing!
They are A-M-A-Zing....wait, did I say that?}

What do you have to do to win one of these gorgeous prizes?
