Little Love Notes + a Giveaway

That’s right, I’m breaking out a version of “Little Love Notes” on a Monday … wild child I am.  Also, this Monday was in desperate need of some link love … and a sweet (and easy) little giveaway!  (Be sure to check out this morning’s post, all about the biggest boldest floral prints for Spring and how to wear them, and then read on for lots of love and freebies.)

Dear bloggers, read this.  Because ‘Blog’ is a Dirty Word.  Leandra of Man Repeller fame, continues to rock my blogging world.

Dear matzoh (dipped in chocolate, nuts, and caramel) lovers, this Zabar’s Candied Matzoh Brittle recipe is a must for your seders this week.

Dear bauble hoarders, learn to stack your necklaces like a pro.  (Plus, it’s Alyson’s @AvgGirlsGuide birthday today, so send her some love!)

Dear camera shy (I’m right there with you), follow these foolproof tricks for looking good in pictures.

Dear J.Crew, your sales are testing my willpower, and I’m failing.  I want these metallic perforated sandals, these snakeskin-bow pumps, and of course, the leopard Ettas. #textbookshoeaddiction

Dear music lovers (ummm, everyone?), this cover of Call Me Maybe by Ben Howard is worth the listen.  Over and over again.  (It’s haunting and beautiful and somehow tragic this way.  And who isn’t obsessed with slightly depressed music?)

Dear readers, I have a bunch of big things in the works for this little blog in the coming days and weeks … so so excited to share with you!

And now, onto the main event: the giveaway!  Last week I had the chance to watch some of the gorgeous runway shows at Miami Fashion Week, thanks to Rimmel.  Rimmel did all of the make-up for the event, and the models looked just flawless.  As part of their huge backstage booth, Rimmel was giving away a few of their beauty favorites for Spring, and because I love you all, I snagged a bunch of product for you!  The giveaway will be exclusive to my social media followers, and will run through next Monday, April 1st.  All you have to do is follow @glitterinclexi on Twitter and Instagram, and then either retweet or re-post to instagram the giveaway with @rimmellondonUS + #RimmelBloggerGiveaway – that’s it!  (Be sure to follow and tag @glitterinclexi + @rimmellondonUS + #RimmelBloggerGiveaway)  I’ll be giving away five (5) sets of Rimmel’s Beauty favorites: that’s 3 lipsticks in top shades, the best bronzer around, and 4 Scandaleyes Liners, per winner.
