Let's talk Happy Birthday and a giveaway!!


Hidey ho! 
How is everyone today? 
Life in these parts has been so busy & hectic I couldn't possibly sum it up during this bloggo. As you can see there's been some/are some changes in the works, both for the blog as well as in my life!
All will be revealed in due time but as of today all I wanted to say is.. 

Happy Birthday Hollys Housewife Life!!  
It's been 4 months yesterday since I started this little endeavour, & it's felt like I've blogged my whole life/also like I just started yesterday. 
In honour of this joyous occasion I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. 

I have almost 5500 page views, it baffles me that that many views have made their way to this lil old blog. To me it feels like I'm writing in my journal and making jot notes of my life. 
I thank you for stopping by and wanting to share in my life experiences, for ignoring my terrible writing skills and seeing through to the heart of the blog. 

As a small token of my love I have teamed up with a couple of my favorite beauty providers to bring you a little giveaway! 
(When I say "teamed up", what I actually mean is I love these products and had them leftover as unused Christmas gifts...
This blog has barely 5500 views, do you think anyone would want to sponsor me?? Bahahahaha) 
^ 2 mini Juleps and a pack of EOS


So the rules of the giveaway are as follows: 
Leave a comment stating what your favorite type of post is/or what you would like to see more of: 

Beauty 
Baby
My day to day life stories 

Make sure you state your name & are either a fb friend, Instagram follower or leave an email where I will be able to contact you when you win! 

A winner will be chosen by random.org and announced on March 1st 2015!!


I don't feel as though blogs need to host giveaways, I think 2 readers who love reading my blog are more important than 2000 who only show up for the swag but since I kind of love sending mail (the postal worker in me) and giving is almost more fun than receiving (almost) I thought this would be a fun way to connect!! 

Contest open internationally! 
Please someone other than my mom comment! (She can't win, that's just shady)
