Chanel Giveaway. Positive thinking!

After 2 years of blogging here, many, many, many comments and views I have decided to have a thank you giveaway!  I love these products (and have had a rubbish few weeks and need some positivity).  If you read my blog/twitter regularly you'll know the back story, and if you now want to know the back story then just read through the last few posts (Incidentally someone said they couldn't comment on my blog.  If you ever have difficulty commenting then please let me know @computergirl200 on twitter or send me an email).  Add to that the loss of the most amounts of work contracts in a week (not through bad work, just random circumstances and markets).  All of this equals 1 Computergirl in StressVille!

I personally have 5 4 of these babies (one in transit due to faulty batch) and I love them. Chanel Illusion d'ombre from their latest collection.  If you want to read about them then I posted an overview post

I will have some more posts coming up on dupes and looks created with the products!

I picked up Epatant (Right: silvery, taupe/khakis colour) and Emervielle (Left: peachy/shimmer/highlight) for you.  I want to call it EmmaVille.

I will be giving these new and unused products away to two lucky Computergirl's Musings Subscribers.  They are completely as I received them and have only been opened for photographic purposes.  These are not the same ones I swatched and use!

 The Positive Giveaway!  A thank you to my followers!
Open internationally.

  1. 1)I'm your newest follower via GFC--Vijaya

    2) This one's a favorite of mine: "Believe it is possible to solve your problem. Tremendous things happen to the believer. So believe the answer will come. It will." That's from Norman Vincent Peale--he may not have been the best in all ways, but he definitely knew his positive thinking.

  2. Hey, Cutie! What a lush giveaway :)
    I think your blog is generally cheerful and I think your posts constantly enable me ;)

  3. I'm a follower via GFC, as Llama, and Facebook, as Julia Llama Banach. Also, posted here:

    And my favourite positive mantra is simply "count your blessings". We often look towards things we don't have rather than make the most of what we already have!

  4. I'm a follower of your blog, and this is an amazing giveaway!

    Positivity can be something I find difficult, but that I am being told about a lot at the moment, because I have been quite unwell, which gets me down. So everyone is always telling me about keeping positive.

    I believe positivity breeds more positivity and I'm starting to learn that now, and be more positive.

    Anyway, that was me, waffling! - Love your blog and thanks for the great giveaway!

  5. I'm a follower via GFC. My positive mantra would be "What goes around comes around" - so be nice people :)

    I follow you on Twitter and have tweeted. Also a "fan" on facebook :)

  11. hi, I'm following you via GFC as hollywood-dreams
    I'm a new follower of yours and I'm really impressed, i love the tests. :)

  12. You are too sweet, what an amazing giveaway for your followers! So so sorry to hear you're stressed. Just keep being the good person you are and great things will come your way, I know it!

    I tweeted your giveaway, and kind of late, but just started following you =) Just followed you on FB and will also announce your contest on there!

  13. Wow, what an amazing giveaway! I love sparkly makeup; sparkly anything for that matter. It's so fresh and boosting! =)

  14. I am a follower on GFC: Mary and Dyer.

    Thanks for the great giveaway! I think that it is awesome to say something uplifting! One of my favorite quotes is from Emerson - “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”


  15. Hi Emma,

    One thing that I've always loved about you and your blog, aside from being really sweet and caring, is that you are not afraid to post vulnerable posts; posts where you expose your raw feelings and open yourself to harsh criticism. As a reader, I feel closer to you and I can open myself to you as well. I feel this is uplifting because some bloggers never bother to get personal or open themselves up and I feel I can never leave a comment that's beyond, "Hey, that's a great idea." or, "That's pretty; I think I'll buy that." It's when you're personal, and sometimes post something that you want to delete, that you get to know your readers in return. That's something I love about you.

    My favorite positive saying at the moment is, "Love what you do. Do what you love."

    So there's a two-fer for you!

    GFC: Kate (or Katie. I seriously need to check my GFC to make sure which one I am.)
    I liked you on FB too! (Katie Grant)

  16. Amazing giveaway my lovely! I'm all for positive thinking and my life's motto has always been "everything's okay in the end, and if it's not okay it's not the end!"

  17. Hi!

    --- I'm now a GFC Follower under: SAUCY | f. | BABY

    One of the most moving things I've read from one of my "The Daily Love" newsletters was this piece written by Jackson Kiddard called "Everything":

    "Everything you take for granted is a blessing. Everything you fear is a friend in disguise. Everything you want is a part of you. Everything you hate you hate about yourself. Everything you own does not define you. Everything you feel is the only Truth there is to know.

    Everything you wish for is already on its way to you. Everything you think creates your life. Everything you seek for you will find. Everything you resist will stick around. Everything you let go of stays if it’s supposed to. Everything you need is right where you are.

    Every time you bless another your bless yourself. Every time you blame another you lose your power. Every time you think you can, you can. Every time you fall you must get up and try again. Every time you cry you’re one tear closer to joy. Every time you ask for forgiveness, all you have to do is forgive yourself.

    Everyone you see is your reflection. Everyone you know mirrors you. Everyone wants to be happy. Everyone wants to live in joy. Everyone seeks a higher purpose. Everyone breathes the same breath. Everyone needs love to survive. Everyone has a purpose to fulfill.

    Everyone’s the same as everyone else. We just get caught up in labels, names, skin color and religion. Everyone’s the same as everyone else. No one wants to feel the pain. Everyone’s the same as everyone else. Everyone is dying for love to remain."

    I also tweeted about it here!/RedsBeautyBlog/status/119510398356553729

    My positive mantra is 'I'll find a way or make one.' Because Nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it. It serves me so well it will become a tattoo one day.

  33. What a great giveaway! I follow on GFC under dailypolish, facebook under Sara Hollander.

    Something positive! Well firstly I have "je ne regrette rien" tattooed on my arm to remind me that everything is a lesson and is important but you have to move past it and keep looking forwards. I also love a song that has lyrics about what makes people valuable, and the whole point is they're valuable because they're alive and able to care about each other not because they have fancy cars or make a lot of money. Helps keep me focussed on the important makeup! :D


  34. oops! I also tweeted:!/squarrell/statuses/119511117633556482

  35. First of all, positive thinking:
    "Après la pluie vient le beau temps", a French saying litterally meaning "After the rain, comes the sun". Things will get better, justn hold on!

    I follow your blog with GFC: Bourriquette, I liked you on Facebook and wrote a post about your giveaway on my blog:

  36. I feel so lucky to be alive and have everything that I do. No matter how bad things may seem, they absolutely can be worse. I had a horrible childhood, and as a result am a very appreciative young woman. I let little things roll off my shoulders; they aren't worth stressing or getting upset over.

    In addition, my personal mantra is to do what makes me happy. Little indulgences are worth every penny in the long run. :-)

  37. I follow on GFC as Bex Smith and my positive thought is this quote - 'We are who we are, not what we were' - meaning don't let anyone get you down, people can change and change for the better, we shouldn't be judged on our pasts, and if you believe in yourself, then others will believe in you.

  42. In the wake of the death of the late, great Steve Jobs I watched his speech at Stanford and found it full of positive, inspiring messages.

    "You have to trust in something. Your gut, destiny, life, karma. Believing that the dots will connect somewhere down the line will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path. And that will make all the difference."

    "Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith."

    "Stay hungry. Stay foolish."

  51. hi,im a follower through the blogger dashboard and on facebook as jo fowler :-)

    I love this quote
    “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
    ― Marilyn Monroe
