Pretty in Pink Giveaway! ~ A Few Feminine Favorites


“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner... I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
~ Audrey Hepburn

A terrific Tuesday to you all! Today we are sharing the fourth of seven little giveaways I had promised for this little blog! I call it the "pretty in pink giveaway" because of the obvious -- all the pretty pink goodies that exalt the feminine spirit. These are the sweet little details that add a splash of lovely into your homemaking life. Perhaps it is a swipe of light pink shimmer across your lips or the aroma of soft pink petals floating from your skin. You are a special creation, different from man and it is beautiful to stand out as one. I think pink glorifies femininity. In this modern age, to me at least -- pink stands for the softer side, the gentle, the delicate but also the strong and faithful women who aren't afraid to be women.


I have included some of my feminine favorites here. Close friends of mine might laugh at me doing a "beauty-type" giveaway because I am not a big cosmetics person. My "make-up" bag consists of three items  - lip shimmer, lip balm and mascara. But my weakness is fresh floral fragrances and lavish soaps and creams. I hope you enjoy my assortment of beauty products!

Now let the fun begin!..๐Ÿ’•


This giveaway includes:

Set/3 Anatomy of a Fragrance "Fresh Cut Trio" Perfumes by Illume (from Anthropologie) 5 ml each,
  • Honey Rose Eau De Parfum
  • Wildflower Bergamot Eau De Parfum
  • Orchid Vanille Eau De Parfum 


WISH Savvy Minerals "Light Pink Shimmer Lipstick" by Young Living Essential Oils,


"Savvy Minerals by Young Living™ Lipstick is formulated to bring out every woman’s unique and natural beauty. The lipstick glides on smoothly, with a creamy texture and medium coverage that makes application easy and forgiving. Made with naturally derived ingredients, including moisturizing botanicals, this lipstick is not tested on animals, so you can feel good about what you are putting on your lips."


Lollia "Believe" Cabbage Rose & Citrus Shea Butter Hand Cream (from Anthropologie),


Opi "Throw Me a Kiss" Light Pink Shimmer Nail Lacquer,


Savon De Marseille "Rose" Soap (Made in France),

How I wanted to remove the plastic wrapper for this photo! 


and finally -- Sky Organics "Strawberry Bliss" Lip Balm.

"Almost all words do have colour and nothing is more pleasant than to utter a pink word and see someone's eyes light up and know it is a pink word for him or her too."
 ~ Gladys Taber

  3. Ohhhh, my favorite colour! I love pink as it exudes femininity ... my favorite thing?

Too many to list. :)

  18. As a woman, I have choices. I can live my life in stages, young womanhood, young motherhood, and now as a mom of young adults. I can embrace beauty as much or as little as I desire. I can have my nails done and lift my spirits or enjoy flowers and fragrance to calm me. It all centers around my LORD Jesus, and as a nurturing woman, I can speak life and splash Jesus over all around me.
    Blessings,
    Laura of Harvest Lane Cottage

    ReplyDelete
  35. First of all, Gladys Taber is one of my all-time favorite authors, so well done. And what I love most about being female is the right to embellish. I can be far more whimsical than husband can be, which includes using the word "whimsical" without reproachment.

    ReplyDelete

  39. Thank you for the chance to enter your giveaway. I too sparsely wear makeup these days. Love pinks. Pink is dear to my heart as I am living with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. Pink is the color for breast cancer. And it also happens to be my favorite color. The part I like best about being a woman is being a mother the ability to produce life, nurture and raise it . Being in touch with my feminine side yet having a will of steel when I need too. I love watching my children grow up and become adults. Even though t times I wish they were babies again to save them the heartache and disappointments that life brings. I enjoy teaching them life tips. And making memories with them for them.

  40. My favorite part of being a woman (which of course is not exclusive to women) is making a home for my family. Decorating it so it is welcoming, preparing meals that give comfort and creating a refuge from the big scary world. Could you please tell me where you found the quote from Gladys Taber about pink words? It is so perfect and I love her writings. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would have to say giving birth to my children and being a mother. Thank you for the chance lovely giveaway.

  42. My favorite thing about being a woman is that I gave birth to 2 children who are grown and now have children of their own. May the circle continue. I love pink....I have lots of hot pink incorporated in my home, along with turquoise. Happy colors! Peace and blessings!

    ReplyDelete
  43. My favorite thing...being able to bear children. I believe that it draws me closer to the Lord, and perhaps helps me to understand His perspective a bit more deeply. He loves us in spite of our humanness, but for our potential as His own. I think mothers are that way about our children. We love them for their potential. I think that makes it easier to be more forgiving. Also, our roll as helpmeets, when we are trained for it from an early age, may make it easier to humble ourselves to our Lord. Poor men are culturally trained to be self-sufficient and to "stand on their own two legs" which seems the antithesis of humility...

  44. My favorite part about being a woman is being a daughter, wife & mother (& this is a big one for me because I had infertility problems)!!

  47. I have never thought about what my favorite thing about being is. I wasn't able to carry to term so, motherhood was out. So I guess I would say being the daughter of a king.

    ReplyDelete
  48. My favorite thing about being a woman is that I get to be the softer half of a partnership with a Godly man. I got to be pregnant and give birth to and nurse our five children. I think being a mother is one of the most empowering things a woman can do.

    Whether or not I win anything--thanks for making us think about who we are!
