The 83rd Academy Awards at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood, CA is so exciting. I'd like to share my favorites of the Oscar 2011 Red Carpet Arrivals.

 She's one of my favorite Hollywood Actress. She looks simply gorgeous in her dress.

She looks fantastic in her red dress. I like the simple  hairstyle too.

 She's my bet for the Best Actress category. I'm happy she won! She's simple yet classy in her dress.

I Love Pink Hues

Pink colors are amazing to me, from baby pink to fuchsia. It's very attractive and vibrant, especially when used as product color. Here's an amazing comment about my love of pink color.

I Love Pink Hues

A friend gave me pink slippers two years ago. I can't forget about the generosity.

Although my husband doesn't like pink, he usually choose pink blouses for me.

Honeysuckle, which has a fading pink hue is the color of the year. That makes me so excited that I want our kitchen wall to have a hint of Honeysuckle!

I bought two pink doll shoes last 2008.

My 2011 planner is pink. It was a gift given to me last Christmas.

My mother-in-law gave me two pink bags last Christmas.

Finally, I used to shop in pink-dominated shopping isles. Here's the evidence.

Sassy Colors Nail Polish

Hi everyone! I'm so happy to share that I've won a manicure set from Stylebible. It was a contest designed to give Valentine's Day color. Since I love nail polish and nail cream colors, I decided to join the contest with my Valentine's Day outfit photo. Once I have the prize, I'll make a blog post about it here.

Sassy Colors Nail Polish

My favorite Sassy Colors Nail Polish is Seduction. Basically, it's red. This February, I had time to paint my nails red nail cream since I want to add color to the month of love. My sister gave me one Sassy Color, the Seduction red.

I also like pink hues. Last January, I had the chance to play with pink nail cream. I'd like to share photos here.

Hosting And Joining Beauty Blog Giveaways

Hello everyone! I'm so grateful for visiting my new blog. I'm also grateful to Betherboo for being my first blog follower. This this time, I'd like to share my opinion and insights on hosting and joining blog giveaways. Let's divide the topic into two: hosting beauty blog giveaways and joining beauty blog giveaways.

Hosting Beauty Blog Giveaways
Do you know that by hosting blog giveaways you are creating an opportunity to improve your blog? I mean search engine optimization here. If you ask your participants to re-blog your giveaway with links to your blog, let's say one hundred bloggers submitted entries, imagine the links that you're building in doing so. That means viral. A lot of people will now read your blog.

Many beauty and fashion bloggers hope to increase their online visitors. The main reason is to attract advertisers and to create a brand or build reputation. Ho
sting beauty blog giveaways is one way to increase your chances of be
ing seen online. As a result, advertisers will ask you to promote their products after their representatives provide you of the samples. Others even earn money just by blogging about their favorite bag or ladies shoes.

Joining Beauty Blog Giveaways

I used to join beauty blog giveaways. I've won some products, yes. However, I really enjoy checking out the products that bloggers offer as prizes. There was one time that I won a small giveaways hosted by a blogger. I'm so grateful because the product she gave me is something that I really hope to have. If you enjoy supporting other bloggers by joining their giveaways, then you may join and participate.

Recycling fashion accessories is an exciting hobby. Personally, I like variety in all my accessories.That's why I love recycling and making a new product out of what I've owned before.
