Happy Birthday, Lipstick And Gelato + Giveaway



Yesterday was the official first birthday of this blog space! Over the last year Lipstick & Gelato has been through so much. We've seen giveaways and style posts, articles on entrepreneurs, recipes ranging from the comfortable to the outlandish, random vlogs and posts on the best food to try while traveling. I've loved getting to know each of you over the last twelve months - it's always so much fun to hang out with other people who love art, food, and fashion! You people (and the way this blog lets me interact with you) is probably the top reason I blog at all. So to celebrate the first anniversary of Lipstick & Gelato, I'm giving away one of my favorite things:

Three months of surprises!

Yep! I am giving away a 3-month subscription to Birchbox! I talked recently about how much I adore Birchbox and their monthly boxes. I've discovered some of my favorite beauty products since subscribing two years ago, including the end-all-be-all illuminating cream, the perfect red lipstain, my favorite daily-wear perfume, my favorite eye shadow palette, and more. It's like Christmas every four weeks and you know how much I love holidays. So when thinking of what I wanted to give away for this blog's birthday, a 3-month subscription to one of you readers soon became the most inspiring option as I get to keep showering fun times on you for the next 90 days! Please enter and share the giveaway below - I will be a choosing a winner this Wednesday, August 17th.

  6. Don't have Twitter, so my favorite surprise is when people randomly give me stuff. My mom just randomly bought me a beautiful new duvet for my bed in my new room, and sometimes my sisters will come home with frappucinos for me. It's Quite Lovely. : )

  12. My favorite surprise is a good (happy) one I know absolutely nothing about until it happens (hence the surprise lolz). It could be anything- getting something from the store because they knew I'd like it, writing me a letter in the mail, or something that takes a lot more planning, As long as I know someone is thinking about me and knows me :) - Candace R

  18. Happy birthday to your fabulous blog, Rachel!!!

    My favorite kind of surprise is a happy surprise that I wasn't expecting at all. (Like when you have an outlandish item on your wishlist and you get it anyway.)

  19. Happy birthday to your blog! I'm actually not a big fan of surprises...unless I'm suitably warned beforehand, haha. However, I do like surprises when it comes to presents, though. Especially Christmas presents.

  20. My favorite type of surprise is getting to see someone I wasn't expecting to... particularly someone I've been missing! My bestie pulled off that surprised once and it was FAB. U. LOUS.

  21. The best kind of suprise is, mail, or an email from a friend that was unexpected.

  22. Ooh, fun giveaway! I like surprises that I anticipate, in that I know I wanted the gift/treat/surprise, but at the same time have forgotten about so it totally blindsides me.

  23. I love surprise packages! Nothing is more exciting (in my humble opinion) than recieving a lovely gift from a faraway friend. Also, just in case I should win ( ha, ha😝) I don't get to wifi except once a week or so. You have a lovely blog to be very proud of, and I wish you a happy birthday!

  25. My favorite kind of surprise is the one in which when you think you have to have everything figured out- a plan, a goal, a solution- God pops in opens doors and blesses you in entirely unexpected ways. His surprises always turn out to be for our good and for his glory-- and it is so much fun to see Him work! Happy happy birthday. I really do love your blog :)

  26. My favorite kind of surprises are the really meaningful ones, or the ones you don't see coming at all. Like flowers for no reason, or an old book "because it reminded me of you." <3

  27. My favorite kind of surprise is when a good friend comes over without telling me.
