12 Days of Holiday Cheer Giveaway Day 1: bareMinerals the playlist palette


The Holiday Season is upon us! To celebrate, I'll be having a giveaway series featuring some of my favorite products for you to win. Each day for the next twelve days, I'll feature a giveaway item that one random winner will receive. The rules are simple...just answer the day's question and leave your eMail in the comments (or check back to see if you've won if you don't feel comfortable leaving your address. You can then eMail me at mej0620@hotmail.com). U.S. residents only, Followers only (includes Google Friend Connect, subscribers, social media followers).

Happy Holidays, from me, to you!


Today's prize is the bareMinerals eye shadow palette The Playlist. This palette was my gateway into the addicting world of bareMinerals, so it has a special meaning to me. Yes, I'm sentimental about my cosmetics! Yours will be new of course, and it's packaged in a beautiful shiny gold palette and boxed. It's a lovely range of shades, and if you're familiar with bareMinerals, you already know how soft, buttery, and blendable their eye shadows are.

12 Days of Holiday Cheer Day 1 Question: Do you prefer a white or green Christmas/Holiday, and why?

My answer: White, all the way! We usually have a white Christmas, and it just seems more festive and beautiful that way. Besides, it makes it easier for the reindeer to land on the roof! I'll confess though, that the snow can all disappear after December 31, although that never seems to happen where I live!

(note: I personally celebrate the Christmas Holiday, but I hope my questions are able to be interpreted for whatever Holiday you celebrate, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, etc.).

Each day's giveaway will be open for 48 hours. I know some of you subscribe via eMail and don't receive posts until a day or two later. Winners will be announced approximately 48 hours after each giveaway is posted.

  2. This is such a wonderful idea! I for sure prefer a white Christmas! It just does not seem like Christmas without a little snow on the ground. With Santa coming it just seems more festive :)

  3. I prefer a white Christmas too! It's more cozy and keeps everyone closer because it's too cold to go out. I miss white Christmases. And just like the song: I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, just like the ones I used to know.....that's what I'm doing because here in Arizona there is no snow! :)

  5. I live in Southern California so we always have a green Christmas, however, one year when the husband and I lived in Hesperia, CA (It's the High Desert) we got 11' of snow. That was my favorite Christmas and I look forward to moving back up to that area one day. I would prefer a white Christmas. :-)

  11. I love the look of a white Christmas, but it always makes travel hard and my husband and I's families are all spread out! So... maybe just a little white? I do prefer a white Christmas tree though! :D threnodynx (at) gmail (dot) com

  13. I am from the Caribbean, so I grew up with 80 degree weather and I always wonder what it was like to have snow, now that I do I love it. I am going with a white Christmas, cuddle at home, drinking hot cocoa and watching bad movies :)

  19. White! Actually I love snow anytime. Maybe because I never saw much of it before moving to Ohio from Arkansas a couple years ago, everyone here thinks I'm crazy for loving the snow :P alicialbaird@gmail.com

  21. I would love a white Christmas. I hate snow but I'd love it if we got it for Christmas. Funny, it used to snow at Christmas all of the time here in my neck of the woods. We moved here and not one white Christmas, since. *sigh*

  27. Happy Holidays, Mary! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    I definitely prefer a white Christmas, but the snow can GTHO right after the first of the year. I don't think we'll have a white Christmas in KC this year (we haven't had one for a few years), since it was 74 degrees yesterday and it's in the 60s today.

  35. I love a white Christmas. There is a hush that comes over everything when it snows that is comforting to me. It makes everything so beautiful and just seems appropriate for the holiday.

  37. Green!! I get cold easily...lol. I do like the way a white Christmas looks though, but we don't have too many of those in SoCal or South Texas.

  38. A white Christmas. It doesn't feel like Christmas without snow. The spirit of the holidays are there, but it feels like something is missing without snow.
