Make the Switch Giveaway CLOSED

Yes, it’s giveaway time again. Hooray! Why am I doing this? Because I feel like thanking you, my loyal readers, and to “raise awareness”.

2 new prize items
As you may or may not already know, Google will be shutting down Google Reader at the end of June. That means we won’t be able to follow blogs through the Google Friend Connect method. Apparently, they are trying to encourage everyone to switch to Google+. I am pretty peeved about it and refuse to switch to Google+ because I won’t be able to personalise my blog page. The design is pretty uniform for everyone and it’ll just be like having another Facebook account. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Google Reader

Anyway, enough with my ranting and let’s get on with the giveaway.

Rules for the giveaway
1. Must be Australian resident, aged 18 or above
2. If you’re under the age of 18, please ensure that you have parental/guardian approval
3. Follow this blog through BlogLovin' (+ 1 entry)
4. Fill out the form (at the end of this post) and hit "submit".

EXTRA ENTRIES (optional)
1. Leave a comment on this post (+1 entry)
2. Place the banner (above) on the sidebar of your blog and link it to this giveaway post (+ 3 entries)

Isn’t that easy? In case you’re wondering, no I am not being paid by Bloglovin' in any way to promote their site. I’ve switched to them and am very happy with how user-friendly their site is. They have also made it easy for us to transfer our Google Reader blogs over.

This giveaway is open internationally. 

Here's what you can win:
1. Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in 050 Berry Smoothie
2. Alpha-H Micro Cleanse
3. Palmer's Foot Magic
4. Australis Intensifeye Wet/Dry Eyeshadow
5. Le Tan Tanning Cream Deep Bronze
6. Le Tan Flawless Legs Deep Bronze
7. L'oreal Paris Sublime Mousse in 70 Pure Dark Blonde

14. Bourjois Little Round Pot Eyeshadows in 13

Please note that for prize items 10 to 12 only applies if the winner is Australian due to mailing restrictions.

Giveaway closes on the 10th of May 2013 at 11.59pm
