The server for MWS has been up and down so much in the past few days, I’m starting to feel seasick 😛 But it should be behind us now. I’ve sucked it up, paid more money and we have moved to a more powerful server so we shouldn’t be experiencing too much downtime after this. (If you still have a problem, please clear cache or flush your DNS and everything will be peachy :) )

So, I apologise for the enforced break, but it gave me a little time to come up with this 😀 To thank you for your patience while we put our house in order after the move, and because its become somewhat a tradition here at MWS around this time, I’d like to run a Christmas giveaway with a difference. Some of you may remember this from the past few years 😀

Oh I didn’t realize you were currently having problems with your server and hadn’t moved yet when we chatted on Twitter last night. Good luck on the move–hopefully i will be doing the same this weekend!

And thank you for the lovely giveaway–that’s so sweet and thoughtful of you! I’d love to win the gift for my sister. She is a newlywed and should have just been able to enjoy newly married life, but things have gotten a little tough for her and her husband, money-wise due to unforseen circumstances. Because of that, she hasn’t been indulging too much on things like beauty, though she often tells me how much she likes the different things featured on my blog. I think a beauty-filled prize would brighten her day right up! 😀

This is a really sweet idea. Thank you for the giveaway! And fingers crossed for you that the server problems have been sorted.

I would like to send this gift on to a really good friend of mine. Her father passed away last week, and it would be nice to let her know I’m thinking of her, since I don’t live anywhere near her.

fin December 14, 2012 at 8:52 am

I would love to have this sent to my sister. She is a counsellor and is always so generous with her time, money and effort to care for other people; and yet so unwilling to indulge in the the things she love or give herself a treat. This gift would be a great opportunity to reward her selfless endeavours and to pamper and spoil her during this Christmas season.

Raquel M. December 14, 2012 at 8:54 am

This is such a great initiative! 😉
I’m glad to be a part of it…
Well, I would like to gift my little sister! She’s gone through a lot this past year and deserves a little pampering. I’m away at college and can’t be with her as much as I’d wish to. She was a dancer and found out she has severe back problems last year so she struggled a lot because she can never dance again. Now she finally began to accept it and I think this would be the perfect gift to shower her with some new confidence and self-esteem! :)

Thank you again and I will definitely share this ! xx

Angela December 14, 2012 at 8:57 am

Thank you for the giveaway. I would love to give this gift to my friend Claudia as she’s been through a lot lately.

What an awesome giveaway, my dear!
I’d like to win this for my Mother. Since I am away from home this Christmas, I’m hoping this nice gift would light up her Christmas, and it would be a perfect surprise for her as well! She certainly deserves to be pampered!

Monstro December 14, 2012 at 9:25 am

How lovely PB!
I’d like to send this gift, should I win, to my older sister in the USA.
She’s been living there for the past 20+ years and we only get to see her every 3 years due to the cost of travelling and the distance. She lives with her husband and a dog, and gets real homesick especially during Christmas. What better way to remind her that she’s loved than to pamper her with these goodies you’ve selected.

Cas December 14, 2012 at 9:28 am

Yay Paris’s giveaway!

I’d like to win this for my dear dear mommy who almost never splurges or buys much beauty products for herself because she’s one of those old school moms who thinks like a thousand times if she should REALLY buy something for herself or use that money for the household! This would definitely cheer her up, (more so since it’s free, lol) what more with Christmas around the corner.

:) merry christmas! :)
I’d love to have my mom get this to show how much i love her! :) Ive been away from her for 8 years, lately she’s been unwell. and even when i buy her things, she uses it very little (chinese mom definitely trying to save money for her daughter). And if this is a gift of beauty, she’ll hopefully use it for beauty! :)

eniz December 14, 2012 at 9:31 am

i am new here so this is an eye opener for this gorgeous blog =D

i would like to give something to my mum as she helped alot during my wedding day.i am more than grateful to have her by my a token of appreciation and as new year are approaching, i would like to present her something different.

thanks PB for being extra generous =)

Issa December 14, 2012 at 9:31 am

I would like to send this gift to my mother because she is very special to me. She was the one who’s been with me through the tough times and good times as well. When my husband left me, I don’t know what to do and she’s always there to comfort and support me. Up to now, she is the one taking care of my son while I’m away at work. She definitely deserve this gift for being a supermom! :)

Victoria December 14, 2012 at 9:33 am

Thanks for doing this Paris. It is such a lovely and generous idea.

I would like to give this to my mother who has really done so much for me financially over the last 2 years. Without her generosity, I doubt I would have been able to get married and have my own place. I have not bought anything significant for her over this period except for the occasional nice dinners. It would be such a pleasant surprise for her since she does like make up.

Gin December 14, 2012 at 9:35 am

Thank you Paris for having this giveaway! I thought it is super lovely of u to have it in a ‘for her’ and ‘for u’ way! It is always good to give than receive but I can’t deny it is great to have receive a gift too! XD Glad that I actually came by today!

I would like to give this to my aunt. She is a lovely person and she is currently fighting breast cancer. She is a strong widow, being independent and able to facing her illness tenaciously. She is one of the few elderly that I really resect and look up to and I thought this giveaway would be a good way to cheer her up. Although I did not purchase (and cannot afford to) these on my own, I believe she would be happy to know that she is on my mind. Besides, she used to be a beautician before she retired! A little skincare and makeup would be right up her alley!

Lastly, Merry Christmas in advance, Paris!

Gin December 14, 2012 at 9:36 am

Sorry for the repeat! There was error when I sent and I thought it didn’t get through! SORRY!

MJ December 14, 2012 at 9:43 am

This gift would be great for … my younger sister who happened to be your No. 1 fan, so receiving this from you would set her off to the moon! Also she is a newbie in cosmetic and started getting a little obsessed with her skin. So any gift of such would make her jump for joy this Christmas. And it looks like a wonderful giveaway.

melian22 December 14, 2012 at 9:53 am

Awesome giveaway in the spirit of Christmas, PB! :)

I would like for my best friend to have the gift. She recently starting working in a position that requires her to look more groomed but the job also meant that she had to get herself a car. With the expense of owning and maintaining a car added to her financial responsibilities, she is left with less money to spend on everything else. I know this gift will cheer her up as it not only contains a whole bunch of products that she can use for work, but it’ll make her look and feel good about herself.

lisa December 14, 2012 at 9:54 am

For my sister. She has been putting herself on a makeup ban for the last 3 years despite being a makeup addict. And she has succeeded, i’m proud to say… though on and off i do send her some of the stuff which didn’t work out for me. Still, this will be a good cheer for her to end 2012 and to welcome 2013.

xinyu December 14, 2012 at 9:56 am

I would like to send this to my mom. She has dedicated her lifetime and all her savings taking care of us children, providing us the best of anything she could give us. It’s been a long time she dressed herself up. Now I hope this little gift would let her know that it is time for her to enjoy life and let her children take care of her instead :)

fanny December 14, 2012 at 10:19 am

I would like to send this gift to my best friend who i have known for 26 years. Due to some missunderstanding, we already not speaking to each other since last year x’mas time. Now, to me, the truth is simply not important anymore, doesn’t matter who is wrong who is correct, and I just want to say sorry to her and hope that she live a happy life and move on. I’m thinking of her during this x’mas season, I miss her a lot.

For my mom, she’s been more than family to me. Being the superwoman she is, I think she should have the gift of becoming beautiful inside and out.

Hasegawa Ayane December 14, 2012 at 10:41 am

It would be nice to give my sister a gift because she’s been through a lot this year with juggling her final year in university while working part-time. She constantly puts herself down saying how she’s never been good with beauty/make up stuff so I thought a little motivation couldn’t hurt :)

Happy Holidays to you PB! :)

Alyssa December 14, 2012 at 10:46 am

Thank you Paris for this giveaway! I’ve been reading your blog for awhile now but I’ve never dared to comment until now. I’d like to gift the set for my mom. I’ve seen many sweet comments wanting to win this giveaway for loved ones. Mothers are the best! I’d like to appreciate my mom with something special this Christmas. She means the world to me although I’ve not really expressed this to her as I’ve just started my first job. She’s the best mom to me as she has managed to put me through university while taking care of my older sister who requires constant attention (she’s a “special child”). I really hope she wins this giveaway as she deserves a little pampering and needs to look after herself more. I guess thats all I have to share. Have a blessed and merry christmas!

Dee December 14, 2012 at 11:09 am

i would like it to be sent to the Superwoman! aka my mum! Being a single parent with 3 kids to raise on a meager salary, my mum has been very frugal and rarely spends money on herself. Thus, she only has a handful of beauty items! I really do hope that she can enjoy caring for herself without worrying or being guilty about the cost. :) Thnaks for the giveaway Paris! Merry Christmas! 😀

Camy December 14, 2012 at 11:09 am

yea, i’d realise that your server went down cause when i just couldn’t get to your page and read your blog. glad that it’s okay now!

I’d like to share this Christmas gift to my mom because she’s too busy on her work and to take care of all the family members that she got not much time to dress up herself and invest on beauty products. Besides, due to my final on 26th dec, i couldn’t be back to my hometown to celebrate Christmas with her. I feel guilty for this. So hopefully can surprise her or make her happy with this Christmas present send to her.

Thanks for the giveaway :)

Crystal December 14, 2012 at 11:20 am

Hi! I would like to send this gift to a friend who I met through University, she is an international student and absolutely loves skincare products. She hasn’t been home in a couple years now and I think this would make her very happy. :)

Jarucha December 14, 2012 at 12:04 pm

I would give the gift to my mom because she never buys make up for herself. She is still using the free gift with purchase items she got ages ago. I want to indulge her in a little treat since trying new stuff is so fun.

Jane December 14, 2012 at 12:18 pm

I’d give this pack to my mama as she always deserves something nice to indulge in :) she always works so hard and comes home with work to do. On weekends she spends most of her time accompanying my dad so he doesn’t have to be alone but that also means less of her ‘me-time’ for herself! she doesn’t splurge much on beauty products nor does she shop excessively because she’d rather save the money for other things like household items. a lot of my mama’s time besides work goes to making her family happy by baking pies or cakes. so this Christmas season I’d like to see her extra happy just because.

Amanda Loong December 14, 2012 at 12:33 pm

I nominate Cheah Hsu Jen! Simply because her face needs all the help she can get! :)

Hsu Jen December 14, 2012 at 12:42 pm

I’d like this gift to be sent to my colleague, Christine Thong, because with all the crazy work hours she’s been putting in to help cover for everyone else who are on Christmas break, she deserves a real treat. :)

Chrissie T December 14, 2012 at 1:02 pm

Hi Paris!
Awesome blogpost. Its a season to give!

I think the person who deserves this the most, is my shy friend Wye Yin!
She absolutely loves looking pretty. Always the demure lady.
I’m sure with Paris’ Little Helpers, she will look even more amazing.

Jennelle December 14, 2012 at 1:07 pm

Thanks for this wonderful giveaway!!
I would like to sent this gift to my best friend whom i known for long years. We went through many stages in life together, from school girl to office lady now she’s a mother of one. Hopefully, she can still be as gorgeous as the past with this.

Wong Yi Lian December 14, 2012 at 1:09 pm

I hope to win this gift for my mother. Ever since my father passed away last year, my mum has been very depressed. It took so long for her to finally regain normal daily life although everyday she still misses my dad. Without my dad by her side, she did not bother about daily skin care and make up. It was only until a couple of months ago when she became better and started to use some simple skin care and cosmetics that I bought for her. I hope that she realizes that we can be independent even without dad by our side. It was tough time for us, but I hope that we will still enjoy our moment together and pamper ourselves. Treasure every moment that we have in our life.

Millie December 14, 2012 at 1:10 pm

Thanks for the generous giveaway Paris! I wish to send the gifts to not only one person but those who will make good use of the products and truly appreciate them. I hope to make everyone I know feeling appreciated and blessed with a thoughtful gift during the festive season.

Frond December 14, 2012 at 1:10 pm

I’d love for my girlfriend to get this… she’s been having a really rough year. Her son has chronic painfilled nights and she’s up often to give him comfort. The doctors can’t seem to diagnose what’s wrong with him so that adds tension. Her daughter is trying hard to cope with almost no attention from mummy and her hubby is either not around or adds to the tension in the house. To me, she seems a bedrock of stability and confidence although I’m honored to be one of the few she shares her feelings with. I think a surprise beauty prezzie will help her remember she’s not just a mummy but a wonderful beautiful woman too! Cos that’s how I see her.

Eva Tinkerbell December 14, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Who else? My mother of course. Over the past years she has been our family’s silent hero- always giving and never asking for anything. She would not buy anything for herself and would not allow us to buy her anything. Recently she was diagnosed with mild dementia. So, while her memory still serves her well, I would like her to receive this gift. She will be thrilled as she has never won anything before and its FREE!

Fanny December 14, 2012 at 3:17 pm

Thanks for such a thoughtful giveaway!

I’d give the gift to my sister. We’re really close but our skin type and tones do not match so I can’t share the same recommendations with her. She’s just started with all this makeup/skincare business and I would love for her to be able to try different products to find what she likes without having to spend a lot of money (or hoard samples from Sephora :P).

LDY December 14, 2012 at 3:27 pm

I would like to send this gift to my mum who shower her love endlessly from the first breath I take.
She is ageing and I never get to see her the way she use to be when she was young. I would really love to give her this as a Christmas present to see her sweet smile deep down from her heart with joy when receive this lovely present. It will be the best gift for both of us for this Christmas.
No one would deserve better than her.

lydia December 14, 2012 at 4:11 pm

I would like to send this gift to my sister because she’s too busy studying and i want her to be smart and pretty! thanks for the giveaway :)

juli1202 December 14, 2012 at 5:03 pm

Thanks Paris B for the lovely giveaway!

I wanted to sent this gifts to my lovely mom who is living in her retirement. She has done so much at taking care of us and the family. She always doesn’t want me to spent much money getting gifts for her simply because she says I need to save it for emergency. I still remember the day, my mom told me that she has no income and cannot afford to help us if we faced any financial problems. Thus, she’d rather not be praised, but she’s happy to help set an example of what
makes a good.

prodigal December 14, 2012 at 5:18 pm

Hi there, i would like to send this gift to my dearest mum. She rarely splurges on beauty products for herself and although I hope to give her the best, I still cannot afford it coz I’m not working yet and I won’t be able to be back home this Christmas too due to exams. So I hope that this gift will make her very happy this Christmas and till I can afford to splurge on her. Thank you!

Maria December 14, 2012 at 6:15 pm

This is such a thoughtful giveaway! May your Christmas be as merry as you make it for others :-)

I would like to win this gift for my sis. She is just a year younger to me. We fight like cats and dogs sometimes, and at other times we’re thick as thieves :-) Either way, my life would be pretty stale without her….and even though I don’t tell her that often, I’d like her to know she’s special to me.

Summer December 14, 2012 at 6:20 pm

I would like to give it to my group of buddies. We’ve known each other for more than 10 years and hope to keep the connection for many more 10 years. I’m sure each of them can find something in the gift that catches their eyes.

And this gift is to show them my gratitude and appreciation over our friendship. Sisterhood rules!

Eunice Chew December 14, 2012 at 7:03 pm

I would love for my mommy to win this wonderful bag of presents !
I recently underwent an operation and she was my ‘personal nurse’ in the hospital for 7 days and 6 nights continually, and she never left my sight even for a single moment ! She has been such a loving, patient, self sacrificing mom, sleeping only on the chair beside that hospital bed for short moments just to make sure I was okay, feeding me,cleaning me, reassuring me and showering me with consistent attention, a grown up lady!! There is no love like a mothers love :,)

I know there are no material gifts to ‘represent’ my gratitude to her, but I hope mommy will be pleasantly surprised if she wins it, as she has never spent on makeup (or anything else) for herself, saving evey penny for her children ..

Melchewvin December 14, 2012 at 7:05 pm

I would like to sent this gift to my mother because for years she had showed me unconditional love and I am leaving to go to study overseas and I know I am going to miss her alot and just wanna thank her for all the things that she did for me!!

josephine December 14, 2012 at 9:57 pm

I would love to give something to my baby sister. That girl is starting on her makeup collection and she is working so hard just to keep up with the latest makeup launches. Of course as much as I would love to share mine with her, I’m currently overseas while she is in msia. I miss the days when I was still back home and we would exchange makeup items and experiment with each others’ new makeup and give opinions about it. Sometimes I do try to buy 2 of each item so we can share, but girls can never have too much makeup huh? I miss her and home… Too bad I only have Christmas eve and Christmas day to be home this year.

Tammy December 14, 2012 at 10:24 pm

I would love this set to be sent to be my mother who lives 6000 miles away from me! She’s been through so much in the past couple of years with family troubles as well so I think this will really be a surprise for her. Normally I will be the person shopping with her/buying her beauty stuff but since I got married I move to London and so I only get to do those things with her once a year! I think she really deserves this set.

Kay December 14, 2012 at 11:12 pm

Hooray for the giveaway!

I would like to gift my cousin, because she shares the same passion for beauty as me. We’re greatly appreciative of each other as we always buy little surprise gifts to each other and we share the same mindset to always give back more even if we dont receive. We also educate our younger sisters and cousins to do the same by gifting goodie bags at kindergarten during their birthdays or during Christmas chalet so they would understand it’s not all about receiving gifts on celebrations but also know the joy of giving back 😉 I’m sure with more generous people around, the world will be a better place, so we do try our small part to make the world better. I really thank my cousin’s patience when I lost it and her kind heart to spread more love around.

Thank you Paris B, for organising this giveaway. And also to spread the message of giving back.

Juanneth December 15, 2012 at 12:35 am

Hi,Paris! I don’t know if I am eligible for this giveaway since I don’t celebrate Christmas but I cant help myself from trying my luck on my birthday month ;P

I’d like to give it to my mum because she’s always been in my mind – we share almost everything, skincare, make up, food, money and of course, stories :) Every time I wanna spend on something, I always have her in my thought, same goes to her. But this year has been quite rough for us in term of monetary due to her illness, despite we share everything, we never reward each other like we used to.

Anyway, thank you for the giveaway, awesome blog and thank you for being really nice to everyone (I always get that ‘love and be loved’ feeling whenever I get your replies hahaha). Merry Christmas,Paris!

Ting December 15, 2012 at 1:02 am

What a surprise, Paris! You are really generous and thank you first of all for organising a giveaway in this festive season! :) ever since November all I thought about was what to give to people around me! :)
For this special occasion, I’d like to give the gift to my mum in law who has been such a darling to me. Knowing that I am away from my family because I got married to her son, she treats me like her very own daughter since the day I came here. In the first 2 years when my language was still a problem, she and my dad in law would accompany me anywhere I wanted to go if my husband was unable to take me there. Believe it or not, they were the ones who took me to job interviews here and therefore I was fortunate enough to get a job as an expat.
Not only that, when my first child was born my mother in law helped to take care of her five days a week for 3 years so that I could still have my career.
She never complains and she is a diligent lady, sacrificing all she has for her family and now mine. She is also very generous, a quality that my husband inherited from his parents. :)
I know she will be thrilled to receive this because I never openly tells her that I actually do love her. I’m too shy you know… :p I have the best mum in law in the world! :)

Serena December 15, 2012 at 1:52 am

Thanks a lot for your generosity! It’s nice to know there are people who are so willing to share their happiness and good fortune.

I would like to send this gift to my good friend, Alice. I was going through a horrible breakup a few days ago, and she was the one who stayed up with me at night, talking to me, crying with me and just being there for me when I was in so much pain. She’s like the sister I never had. I want to thank her for her generosity and how much she has opened up to me. It’s nice to have such a friend when I’m studying overseas and living so far away from my family and friends. People like Alice make life worth living for, and I want to show her my appreciation.

Thank you for your kind intentions and bless you!

anusha December 15, 2012 at 2:06 am

To my sister because in that case i can also share the stuff with her ..wink…ha ha..

Catherine December 15, 2012 at 2:38 am

I had problems with going on your website and I was trying to search everywhere whats going on! Hahaha 😀 Im glad you r back!

Lovely gift :) Im not participating, but omg it looks goood! Especially this agnes b. box, mmm :>
I got a lot of beauty gifts to my family, we had recently -20% on all gift boxes in sephora so I stock up. I ended with approx. 5 boxes per person… How am I going to pack it to my suitcase?? 😛

December 15, 2012 at 4:22 am

In fact I think I’ll divide the gift a give one product to any important woman in my life, so no one will be without something special.

I’m happy the website now is running well, and I can comment 😉

Sheela December 15, 2012 at 5:23 am

What a lovely thought of uplifting the Christmas spirit!

The person who truly deserves your gift is my dearest Mom. Trust me, she really needs all the pampering from the array of products you are offering.

I recently gave birth to a cute baby boy. My little bundle of joy is being taken care by my Mom. Although she is a Supermom/Supergranny, she could hardly catch up with taking care of her appearance. Paris, she does not remember the last time she put on her favourite lipstick!!! Perhaps, the workload of taking great care of her newborn grandchild has taken a bit more that what she could handle.

Therefore, my Mom is the person that suits the theme of your giveway. She has given so much without asking for anything in return. I love you,Mom!

Esther Neo December 15, 2012 at 8:09 am

I would like to request the gift for myself….why? So I can holler abt it, shove fantastid skincare n make up into peoples’ hands and continue to share all our passion for all things nice!! Xmas is all about spreading love….

purni December 15, 2012 at 8:16 am

Thanks for the giveaway…i would like to send this gift to my mother. She never used stuffs from benefit, milani and other brands except revlon and maybeline. This would be a good chance for her to experiment new products. Maybe i also can show her how to use some of the products. She is not that old. Just 30++. This gift would make her very happy. Like a kid with candy

Tannesi December 15, 2012 at 9:07 am

I would like to win this gift to Ba?ak (Bveç)
She is a makeup blogger, as me. :) She loves “Benefit” and to try new products. I hadn’t meet her. Because she lives in another far city. But I love her very very much! :)

December 15, 2012 at 9:55 am

I would really love to send this gift to my mother. She worked so hard through the years and have always put me first before herself. Through the years, I’ve realized the once youthful and radiant appearance my mother once had diminished slightly. She spend more money on skincare for my blemishes that she settled for more simple and cheaper drugstore versions. Her excuse was, “I don’t need it anymore…you will need to look beautiful when you start working.”. Now that I’ve started working, its hard to repay the sacrifices she has made. But I am trying hard and that’s why this gift would mean a lot to her…:)

Joanne Shim December 15, 2012 at 10:08 am

Hi! Thank you for the giveaway.

I would like to send this gift to my dear cousin who is recovering from a painful surgery. She have been suffering for a while and now after the surgery the pain has yet to subside. This gift would surely cheer her up.

Su Lin
December 15, 2012 at 11:09 am

I would love to send this gift to my cousin as I will be going down to Singapore for the holidays and it would make the perfect Christmas present. She loves makeup and skincare products and always watches beauty videos on youtube. Aside from that she has just graduated from high school and is entering college soon. As such, it would be the perfect time for her to begin experimenting with everyday and easy to wear light make up. It would totally make her day if she could win some instead of buy some. Thanks 😉

Christine Liow December 15, 2012 at 11:44 am

I would send this gift to my young sister. She just started her college life, so I believe she should really start to dress up herself and be presentable. Some investments on cosmetics product will definitely help her on this.

Hi PB, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, it is still early, but I believe everyone is in the mood for the festive. Living through year 2012 and look forward for brighter future. Many good things happen in this year and at the same time bad things happen, but this is called the balance. Yin and yang.

For the gift, I would like to dedicate it to my sister, as she is very blind about makeup, hope she will pick up the lesson each and every day. Every woman should master basic makeup. And also I would like to give my biggest support and pray for her as she is trying to conceive baby, hopefully everything will go well and success.

Some people just so easy to have baby yet not appreciate, but some spend all their fortune to have the little angel.

And not forgotten, to you too PB, as you are one of my inspirational blog that I keep follow up everyday, I am sure this year is quite tough, things go up and down in your life. But I am truly glad that you make it. You are a wonder woman :)

terry December 15, 2012 at 12:32 pm

My mother!! She doesn’t really do makeup because she thinks it’s too expensive and a waste of money but I’d love for her to try beautifying her (though she’s beautiful enough as it is) because she’s been divorced since I was born and I’d love for her to meet someone new!! Oh and I have exams over Christmas and on the 31st Dec this year (booooooooo to horrible university schedules) so I’d love for her to get a little something even though I won’t be able to take time to go out and shop for her. ANYWAY. HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE…!!!=DDD

December 15, 2012 at 1:21 pm

I’m not going to enter this year, but just wanted to say how much my mum and I loved your kind and generous gift last year. We’ve had so much fun playing with everything and found some great favourites!

I would like to have this lovely gift sent to my friend that accompany her husband to Cambodia who works there for a project of few years, there isn’t any proper shop nearby the place they stay, needless to say shopping malls! She’ll really feel ‘alive’ again if she gets this!

Ethan December 15, 2012 at 8:52 pm

Hi, I would love to win the gift for my mom. She works so hard to make christmas special for all of the family i want to give her something special to say thanks. She loves makeup its her passion and my passion is skincare 😉

Emy Shin December 15, 2012 at 9:56 pm

If I win, I would give the gift to my mom, because she is somebody who never treats herself because she expends all her energy, time, and money on those she loves. :)

Petrina December 15, 2012 at 10:17 pm

I would like to send this to one of my best friends who had recently been through some difficult times medically and mentally. She has mourned a loss close to her heart and could have lost her life due to poor medical care. She is still recovering both physically and emotionally and though this will not take away her pain it might cheer her up ( she is a girly girl ).

Jackie L December 15, 2012 at 11:37 pm

I’d love to give this to my mother! I’m still a student and my measly allowance can’t afford the luxuries that I’d liker her to have (one day though, when I’m already working). I’d like to give her this for all the love and patience in raising me. My mother’s make-up is very spartan (close to nada), she’d rather buy food for the family than buy something for herself. Money has been tight especially after she suffered from a stoke… If she would win this, she’d definitely feel like a queen like she definitely is!

Wong Shue Voon December 16, 2012 at 1:36 am

Hi Paris, I would love to give this to my mum and I want to let her know that I love her very much. Although she seldom make up, but sometimes, she asked me to help her in make up for occasions, it does close the gap between us. It strengthens our bond.

Stephanie avoinette December 16, 2012 at 2:32 am

Hi everybody!

I will love to send this present to my sister Anne, which is going to be married in a few months.
Love xxxx

suzanne t. December 16, 2012 at 8:38 am

Thanks for the giveaway!! I would like to send this to my mother. My mother thinks that doomsday will be on the 21st of Dec 2012. If she is proven wrong, i want her to have this present to remind her to rejoice in the present and be beautiful. Because she is very beautiful. 😀 Thanks for the giveaway. Good luck to everyone!

Michelle December 16, 2012 at 8:44 am

I’d like to send this to a very dear friend of mine because she needs to believe that there are no ugly women, only lazy ones. This beauty gift would be the perfect kickstart!

Sandra December 16, 2012 at 8:45 am

Thank you Paris for doing this giveaway.

I would like to send this gift to my best friend. She just recently went through a divorce and has four little ones. She’s only 28 but you’d think she’s older if you met her in person. She has such a big heart and has put her children and eveyone else ahead of her – so much to the point that I think she’s forgotten about herself (particularly her looks). After a year of her divorce, she has just started showing an interest in improving her looks. I think that if she received this as a gift, she’d put it to great use and it would boost her confidence. She’s truely beautiful – both on the inside and outside but as we all know – a little skin care and makeup can make such a big difference!

Thank you again for such a lovely giveaway!

Ivanka December 16, 2012 at 10:47 am

Hi PB!

That is so sweet of you to make this giveaway for everyone! Thank you in advance!

I would like to send this to my mom because I just want her to indulge in these beauty picks as she always tell me that it is too expensive to splurge on beauty products. She is a saver so she would not spend much on skin products. I want her to be the happiest mom to win this prize giveaway!~

lynne December 16, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Like most posters, I’d love for this to be sent to my Mum. I’ve always been trying to convince her to doll herself up more, but she’s convinced that after 20-odd years of slogging away for the family there is no need for her to look ‘pretty’ anymore. If I can’t be there to nag her about taking care of herself (oh how roles have reversed), then at least she’d be surrounded by these reminders.

Yi December 16, 2012 at 7:35 pm

Sorry there is a typo:

I would like to send this gift to my mum who lives in the US because she is the best mother in the world. We only get to MEET a few years once, if lucky, once a year!

Samantha L December 16, 2012 at 11:36 pm

Hi Paris!

I would like to win this for my mother for it will be a very nice Christmas gift for her since I’m still a student and have no means to be able to afford anything too nice.

Thank you!

Aby Teo December 17, 2012 at 12:52 am

Happy Christmas Paris :DD
I think one of my dear best girlfriend would be very happy to receive the gift! she is a pure girl, I mean pure without any make up or skin care 😛 I would really like to surprise her with all these girl things. She is a girl afterall =) She has her inner beauty which is very good but I want her to grabs the different happiness and excited feeling for becoming a special beauty with all these great items. With your kindness, I wish her and my dream can come true in this Happy Christmas Season xD

thanks for the Christmas Giveaway! ^___^

Liana L December 17, 2012 at 8:26 am

Hi, I’d be sending this to my best friend who is a beauty-junkie just like me. I’d love to surprise her with this! Thanks for the giveaway :) xo

Connie December 17, 2012 at 10:02 am

I would like to win this gift for a friend who has just given birth to a lovely baby girl. She’s still in confinement and had no makeup for the past one month. Hopefully with this gift she will be a pretty mother once her confinement period is over.

JoanneLH December 17, 2012 at 11:34 am

Thank you for having this giveaway!!! =D

I would like to send this gift to my mom! She had been through a lot these two years and yet she had supported me in every decision I made. She’s the toughest, most independent woman I’ve known and she definitely deserve some pampering. I want her to know, although I’m always away due to work commitments, I love her to bits and she’s always on my mind.

December 17, 2012 at 12:10 pm

I would like to gift them to my sister who seems to have little makeup/ beauty products. This is a good opportunity to expose her to them :)

December 17, 2012 at 12:29 pm

I’d love to send this gift to my eldest sister because she’s giving birth to her first child next year.I hope I can give her some skincare products and cosmetics so that she can stay beautiful while busy taking care of newborn baby:-) I’m sure she’ll be stressed and tend to neglect her skin, hence I hope these products will keep her young and be a beautiful mom 😀

Charlie December 17, 2012 at 4:45 pm

That is so generous of you!

I’d like to win this for my best friend of 11 years. Her birthday was on 6th December, and this year it was horrible. It was so horrible that she cried for three days. It will be a pleasant surprise if she can receive something nice. She deserves nice things :)

Happy holidays PB!

Julie December 17, 2012 at 7:49 pm

I’ll like to win this for my best friend as she’s been with me through thick and thin and receiving this will definitely cheer her up as she loves presents. Have a Merry Christmas!

Teh Su Ying December 17, 2012 at 7:57 pm

Hi would love to win this giveaway for my bestie who’s birthday is coming up at the end of the month. As I am absolutely broke this month and currently unemployed, it would mean the world to me to be able to gift her with something special in conjunction with christmas time and her birthday. Thanks so so much :)

December 17, 2012 at 8:33 pm

I would like to send this Christmas gift to my mum because her birthday is just 5 days before Christmas and I always buy her a birthday gift but not a Christmas gift. So, this year I’d like to make her birthday and Christmas really special. I am sure she will be surprised and delighted at the same time! And, she will know she is thought of not just on her big day but on special ocassions too :)

I am not very good with expressing my feelings with hugs and kisses so I hope to show her my love in different ways! thanks Paris …

December 17, 2012 at 10:21 pm

I would send this to my aunt, who turned me on to makeup and beauty when she made me up as Cindy Lauper for Halloween when I was 8.

She’s a single woman in her 50s, and America’s economic recession has hit her, a sometimes-on, sometimes-off factory line worker, a bit hard. What extra moneynshe has she either pumps back into savings, or uses to pay for food and vet care for her morkie dog and bichon elderly dog. She doesn’t splurge much on herself anymore, and this round up would be such a luxurious suprise for her.

My aunt’s been a close friend and trusted loved one all my life. I’d love to see her a bit spoiled in a way that would really brighten her cold, Northwestern winter.

Jennifer December 17, 2012 at 10:37 pm

Thanks for the giveaway Paris! I hope you will be showered with plenty of joy and gifts too :) I’d like to dedicate this gift to my sister. I was an only child for 11 years before she came along. Though a lot younger than me, but I admire her positive outlook in life and the things that she will do to live life to the fullest. I am grateful for her existence and endless support to me whenever I am hit with a crisis especially this year. Thanks a lot and have a good year ahead :)

yee December 17, 2012 at 11:11 pm

Awww what a nice thought for the holidays, Paris. :)

I’d love to have this gifted to a dear friend who’s just broken up with someone and it’s been tough. This would really cheer her up. She’s always been there when I needed someone, and she loves makeup but can’t really afford the medium-higher end stuff cos she only started working not too long ago. This would be the perfect Christmas gift to her!

Abby December 17, 2012 at 11:35 pm

Thanks for the double giveaway! Very generous of you Paris.

Well, I’d LOVE to win this for my girlfriend. Reason one, she is very new to makeup and real skincare so this would be SUCH A TREAT! Second, her birthday is in less than a month and I am still scratching my head as to what to get her. This would be awesome. And third, it is almost Christmas after all!! AND she is local too, so I’d probably be able to get it to her for the double celebration!

Thanks again.

Hello :)
I would like to send this present to my mother..We live now in different countries (she is in Russia, me-in Germany) , and i think a lot about her..I guess, it could be a very nice surprise!

qilah December 18, 2012 at 12:19 pm

i’d like to give this giveaway to my best friend as she had been through a lot of ups and downs this year. I hope this give would make her feel loved and show my appreciation to her for being strong and never give up.

Khadijah Malik December 18, 2012 at 3:31 pm

Hi Paris!
I would love to send the gift to my mom! She has done everything for me and I would really love to give something back as she is also just starting to wear make up so this would be the perfect opportunity! Thank You!

Liz December 18, 2012 at 5:17 pm

I was google-ing for Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandoulière 25 Empreinte Monogram and somehow I clicked on your blog to read further about that gorgeous Speedy. Less did I know that I’m going to come across a blog that gives great info about almost everything about women stuff. The name explains it all!!! As I interestingly read your blog further, “Win! Send a Gift of Christmas: It is better to give than to receive” definitely catches my eyes.

My best friend is getting married on the 1st week of January 2013 and I want nothing less than a great gift for her before she walks down the aisle. Being a woman, she is no exception to cosmetics, skincare products, fashion; I mean, everything about women stuff. I will be delighted if I could win this gift and present them to her. 😀

M.L. Chow December 18, 2012 at 9:12 pm

I would like to send this to my sister despite all those insensitive things she said to me in the past. Maybe it’s just me because when we meet up, she appears to be just nonchalant. I usually just ‘switch off’ when she speaks…to protect myself. I think the time has come for me to let bygones be bygones.

Ba?ak Çelik December 18, 2012 at 10:20 pm

Hello there!

This is so nice that we can throw a beloved one a surprise -and also get one for us :)

If I win, I would like to send this present to one of my pregnant friends, o remind her that moms can and should be well-groomed, too :)

Thank you!!!!

kimmyz December 18, 2012 at 11:02 pm

Paris! First of all, thanks for the giveaway! Very sweet of you….

I would like to give this lovely gift to my sister! Her name is Victoria and I must say, being the elder sister, I haven’t been as generous as I should. She has just started work not too long ago and is still getting use to being financially independent. Not being able to splurge or shop during such a festive season can be depressing so getting a surprise pressie like this would make her really happy. SO…I really hope she gets pick and she remembers that “Thanks to her che (& of course, you too), she got something really nice!”.

yoke. p December 19, 2012 at 3:39 am

I would like to bring this happiness to my lovely sister and wish her to have a wonderful Christmas ever! We come from a conventional/traditional family that seldom celebrate any festival including family member’s birthday. So, by having this chance, I wish she will be happy with this surprise.

Mui Siew December 19, 2012 at 11:15 am

Hi PB, I would like to send this gift to my dearest bestie – Suet Ling.
I can’t thank you enough for the support you’ve given me over the years. I don’t think I could have made it without you. There are certain times in one’s life when you fully understand the value of a true friend. You have been a true friend to me.
My gratitude is unending. You’ve done so much for me over the years, but most of all, thank you for being there. That means the world to me.

Merry Xmas to you PB :)

Angelina December 19, 2012 at 11:41 am

Hi PB. Thank you for the giveaway. I would like to gift my sister this stash because she has been a wonderful sister for many years, and a loving daughter to our family.

rudi December 19, 2012 at 11:52 am

I would like to give the lovely gift to my friend Sharon.

No bad stuff has happened to her this year. She’s taken up running this year and has done a few good runs – all within qualifying times which is awesome for a beginner.

She’s happy with her life at the moment looking forward and not backwards at previous unhappy experiences.

Such happiness is infectious and I want to return some to her.

Knowing her, she will share the goodies with others as well so the happiness multiplies! YAY
