Spiffykerms Birthday Giveaway

spiffykerms-birthday-giveawayMy birthday is today!

I scheduled this blog post in advance. I ain’t be spending no birthdays on the computer. I’ll blog about the day a little later because I’m probably out gallivanting around. #BirthdayGirlFTW

For those who are long-time readers know that I like to do giveaways on my birthday. I failed at getting one up last year, since I was going all Paleo. Then gave it up.

But I’m back at it this year. Let’s make it a bi-yearly birthday giveaway. I’ll try to remember to do one next year, breaking up my system.

Everyone loves giveaways, and I’m opening this one up internationally. Hopefully the winner doesn’t live somewhere where it costs more to ship the products than it does to buy them yourself at the store. We’ll see how it goes.

This year I’ll be giving away a few of my favourite things:


You know I’m a fan of Philosophy and MAKE UP FOR EVER products, so you know I can’t do a giveaway without these two products involved. You’ll be getting a bottle of Purity cleanser which I haven’t strayed away from in almost two years. Smoky Lash mascara will give you false looking eyelashes if you layer it a ton. It’s great.

Caudalíe hand cream is fantastic, has a nice scent which I can’t for the life of me describe.

Mini atomizer (it’s for your perfume, to carry on the go. If you don’t know how to use one watch this short YouTube video)

I’m also throwing in a few things I love from Daiso. Stationary is my vice. I’m forever buying notebooks and pens, so a Daiso notebook had to go in, along with a little Daiso trinket bowl (that light blue thing) to store your rings or spare change in, a box of Daiso nail polish remover pads (these are the only ones I use now, they’re greasy but good) and to keep everything together, a floral Daiso make up bag.

Giveaway is open world wide. Use the rafflecopter form below to enter.

Everything was purchased by me, and will be shipped out by me.

Some good birthday

Birthdays are like Christmas to me. I could barely sleep the night before my birthday. Seriously, just like a little kid. It was probably the cupcake I ate right before bed. Hey, I had to test it out to see if it was fit for my co-workers to eat. It’s not that I love getting gifts… because that’s always great. It’s just that I get phone calls from family and friends and, I just love that!

Whenever it is someone’s birthday at work — the birthday person has to bring in treats for the staff. I ended up making boxed cupcakes, along with some homemade shortbread cookies. Apparently it was the best shortbread everyone’s ever tasted. But I wouldn’t know because I personally hate shortbread. So maybe I’ll post the recipe that I have.

I set my alarm 10 minutes earlier than normal yesterday morning just so I could get the most out of my day. I usually wake up at 7am to get to work for 9. I don’t take that long to get ready, I’m ready in about twenty minutes and the rest of my morning is spent with Alfie our Pomeranian because he’s left alone for 8 hours of the day.

I got up at 6:45 and got my shower immediately. Then proceeded to make the Boyf and I a “big breakfast”. I made six eggs (lol I know), scrambled them and made hash browns for the both of us and had three sausages for the boyf. Those things are gross.

When I got into work I nearly teared up because L McMomsie (who I blogged about just hours ago) brought in a birthday card and some cake pops for me! I seriously “awwed” at the fact she did such a nice thing like that for my birthday!

(My desk is an organized mess)

As soon as I sat down at my desk my boss came in and sang happy birthday to me and brought me some McDonalds breakfast — my favorite one at that: BLT bagel with a chocolate milk shake. OMG you guys. Two breakfasts in one day. I normally skip this meal, so by 10am I was full to the brim.

On twitter the other night I won a free lunch from a local pub. They always tweet free lunches and I said it was my birthday coming up and asked if I could win – and they let me! Wahoo!

So, my besties from work, Julie and L McMomsie all went out for lunch! So fun!

L and I ordered the same thing. It was freaking delish and I want to go back for more. Or at least get the salad dressing recipe from them. Holy moly.

My boss bought a puppy over the weekend, and brought him into work after lunch. Isn’t he just the sweetest? You can’t see his eyes over his little mop head, but he’s 2lbs and he’s a Yorki-Poo mix. So so cute.

Of course a birthday wouldn’t be complete without a birthday cake and candles! Scott bought this delicious red velvet cake/cheesecake mixture and it tastes … AMAZING!

P.S. Happy Birthday (today!!!) to Jess and her twin sister Sarah!
