Enter the New Year International Giveaway !! :))

New YearΒ΄s Celebration Giveaway (CLOSED NOW!)

Happy New YEar

Maybe some of you remember my mini giveaway a few weeks ago πŸ™‚

Bulbul was one of the winners and I attached a trial size of the ALVA night cream to her prize. It took about two weeks till the registered letter arrived at her place and she was so happy about winning the eyeshadow and wrote such nice review, it really touched my heart. After reading her post I decided to to another giveaway for you lovely ladies on IMBB and discussed this with Rati. Due to the fact that Rati and me already had planned to do a makeup exchange I had the chance to send all the giveaway prizes to India – they arrived in Delhi last Wednesday with the makeup exchange products :yahoo:

Bulbul wrote in her post that she fell in love with ALVA and so I decided to go for this brand for the giveaway. As a typical beauty junkie I know that most of you would like the chance to discover beauty products from other parts of the world. Same here :)) Now Germany is famous in natural cosmetics in high-end quality. Regarding ALVA you also have a small and innovative brand acting from conviction and a brand that does not fear to go for one of the natural cosmetics certifications most hard to get – a brand must proove to deserve it with every single product released and with every new product charge; not only regarding the product itself but also packaging, boxing, materials used for displays and so on.

ALVA says on their website: Alva Naturkosmetik always uses high quality ingredients that come from organic cultivation, where possible, and are in accordance with the highest quality requirements. The consistent quality and ethical guidelines have let to all products that have been tested by Γ–kotest being awarded the highest score of β€˜very good’. This is also the requirement for the future by which Alva naturkosmetik wishes to be judged.

Read more about Alva here : http://www.alva.de/

As far as I can asses: What they claim is true. Since we wanted to have something very special for you for this New YearΒ΄s celebration I guess it was the right choice and I hope you ladies like it πŸ™‚

So here are the eight prizes you can win πŸ™‚


Facecare prize from the Sea buckthorn line (recommended for skin over 30 es well es for dry skin), containing: Moisturizing Cream, Night Cream, Face Toner, Moisturizer (Fluid/Serum) with royal jelly – a booster to be applied under daily facecare (mature or very dry skin or as single care product in warm season) and Eye Cream.

  7. Thank you so much Tatjana for the giveaway… I’m already a subscriber.

    No new year resolutions for me this year. I’ve realised I don’t do them very well. But I plan on being extremely optimistic this year and not let anything get me down. I also start my first job and I plan on being awesome at it. I also want to learn sewing so I can make (or atleast fix) my own clothes, atleast some of them. I want to finish all the books in my reading list (this has been pending for a while).

    And I also need to lose a bit of weight and I have been very inconsistent with that. So, I’m going to make a sincere and honest effort this time.


  8. this is indeed the most heartfelt giveaway ever! i really have my eyes on that skin care line! sounds like a lifesaver.

    1. i am already a subscriber
    2. 2010 holds a special place in my heart. had to let go of some very special people in my life. all for the better though! let’s see what 2011 has in store for all of us.

  10. 1. I am a subscriber through google .

  34. Happy New Year everybody!!!:-* Tatjana!!! thank you for holding another giveaway!:D

    – I am a subscriber of the blog.
    -2010 was one of my favourite years! for the simple reason that I de-cluttered my life which was pretty messed up the year before.

    I started my blog, something I kept on hold forever. (thank you Rads:-*)

    and I spent quality time with family, and most of all.. I fell in love with myself! πŸ™‚

    I am really happy with myself finally after all these years of self-beating. I am taking good care of myself and intend to do so forever. I really needed a push though, this happened after a broken back and broken friendships and a relationship.

    2010 was my year. A new start and a chance I gave myself, this was something I never did before. I had my family and my friends by me, who patiently waited for me to be back. 2011, I plan on spending quality time with family friends and myself.

    I really wish all of us would give ourselves all that we deserve!:)
    A very happy 2011 to all, once again. :-*

  35. Thank you tatjana :jaiho: :jaiho:

    already subscribed πŸ˜€

    There was lots that i have learned through 2010 but one of the most imp. things i realized was ” What we think is best for us is not really the best always. God has different plans for us but whatever plans he has .. happens for our best.” I have learned to submit my complete faith to Lord. And in 2011 i hope i can continue to do so πŸ™‚

    New year wishes to all again :)) :))

  36. Hi, I subscribe to your email updates.

    My New Years resolution is to exercise consistently and track my diet so I actually lose some weight! :pig2:

  37. Happy New year to all on IMBB :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:
    1. Am already a subscriber..
    2. My 2010-
    it has been an adventurous one to say the least cz i started my own small venture, had roadblocks bt m quite satisfied wid my self…so m proud to b where i am 2day & b able 2 carry wat i learnt 4m my mistakes f last yr & make ths yr an equally exciting one :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

    My 2011:
    i do not plan anythng in advance…bt i doo want tht all my decisions work out in my favor evn if it z a failure- it should help me grow :toothygrin: Also, i want 2 forget my last relationship, not hold on to it & move on :haanji: :haanji:

    And this z jst a great initiative tatjana…i just hope i win πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›
    would be my first :lashes: :lashes: :lashes:

  38. Hi Tatjana,
    Really nice of you to put up all this stuff as a giveaway, I remember your last giveaway – loved those products, and love this too !! I just have one question, do we get a choice to choose the products that we want to win, like the first product is for over-30 skin, so under 30 beauties would not benefit from it as much as over 30 beauties?

    I would like to enter the giveaway.
    I am already a subscriber of this blog and just want to share about the year that has passed by. This year has been a sort of a new beginning for me. I completed my Masters degree and kick started my career. I got my first job , I always dreamt of the day I would have a job, and what it would be like to be one of those people in neatly ironed smart formal clothes who go to work every morning at 9 and come back tired at 6, bragging about what a busy day it has been. Now i’m of those!!! πŸ˜› This dream came true this year. Although its not what i expected, I’m loving every bit of it πŸ™‚

  39. Hi Smita, Happy New Year :party:

    The first prize shown is not only recommended for over-30 skin, it is highly recommended for dry skin as well. Since these are natural products they contain only natural ingredients and no special chemical formula for mature skin or so :))

    I was planning to decide the winners via random.org just one after the other because I find it quite difficult to decide who should choose a product first and so on. But if there would be two of the winners who would wish to exchange their prizes that would be no problem I guess :))

    1. yes..yes..i am ready to exchange my products… :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    2. Haha thats again a catch, what if someone is under 30 and has combi or oily skin ? But since you mention its all natural ingredients – so it would be for all skin types. And i do agree it would a huge task to make everyone choose what product they want and then calculate it all.
      Don’t want to be a party pooper so we’ll cross the bridge once we reach there. Exchanging is a good idea too.
      Happy New year to you too.. :bravo:

I just want to spend more time with Sanjeev and that’s it. I have missed doing that last year- like just sitting and chatting with him over a cup of coffee. It was all work and work . No major resolutions. Just want to take life as it comes. I just hope we get more mad in the coming year. :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yelo:

    Whole of 2010, I was struggling to lose the last 6 kg I gained during pregnancy. I reduced 9 kg in 2009 but in 2010 not even a single kg. I want to lose that remaining kg in 2011, and I have become a vegetarian, and I would not be taking egg and egg products too.

    Secondly, I am investing my time and money and learning to take care of my skin and do makeup after reading this blog. So thanks to all.

  54. Wish u a very HAPPY NEW YEAR πŸ™‚

    For 2010, i came across this lovely blog around Dec 2010 as that was the point where i started looking for makeup tips for brides(Getting married in March 2011 πŸ™‚ ). It was the FIRST EVER BLOG which i SUBSCRIBED to. When i started following i didn’t knew its such a vast bunch of beautiful people….from here i came to knew Rati, Deeptima, Rima, u n all(by names n their beautiful blogs :)).

    For me in 2011, i have just one small short term resolution, “I WANNA LOOK BEAUTIFUL ON MY BIG DAY” n also later on…….and for this i will dig up the whole blog like anything and will get the best possible thing recommended out here.

    U Guys does a GR8 JOB and Keep Posting. :blush:

  55. Wow! Such a generous giveaway, enter me please πŸ˜€

    2010 was an amazing year for me, I had so much success and travelled a lot, it was fantastic. This year I’ll graduate from high school and go to Hong Kong for a year then!

    1. Hongkong is amazing, I was there during my college time as well (via Erasmus, Europe student exchange prgram) – that was before 1999. I remember it as a very nice year :))
      Well… and my English was much better at that time πŸ˜†

      1. I grew up in foreign countries, having seeing litterally EVERY country except for the cities Hong Kong, Dublin and the continent Australia, and that’s what I’m gonna change, starting as a nanny in Hong Kong and then planning some trips here and there hahaha

      2. This sounds like you family was trafeling a lot – I can imagine this could be amazing on one side and also difficult on the other – especially for children. I came to Germany one month before my sixth birthday… and it was not easy at all at the beginning – different language, different culture, different people.

        Never been to Australia – would love to. :lashes:

        1. Oh I grew up with travelling, I’m kinda spoiled lol that’s why I’ll be a flight attendant soon, it’s the perfect job for me.

          I was born in Berlin, then left for 8 yrs and came back for primary school and have been outta town like every weekend and during spring, summer, fall and winter break πŸ™‚ So it was amazing. I have family and friends all over the world and seriously… living in the Caribbean is definitely better than being here in Germany – –

          So you speak German?

          1. Yes, fluent and without accent – I am part of the so-called “second generation”. :)) I studied German as well (German, media studies and communication science – oder, auf Deutsch: Germanistik, Publizistik und Kommunikationswissenschaften – der alte Magister, der noch etwas taugte; die MasterabschlΓΌsse sind heute ja nur noch abgespeckte Magister, wirklich grausig, wie wenig da noch gelernt wird *grusel* edit/transl: I am stressing on how good the old german Magister Artium studies were and how bad in my oppinion the anglo-american system is – today a Master means something we used to learn in two years before they switched the system). After some years working as a communications consultant I decided to go for the MBA – and I did. :))

            So you are in Berlin actually? This is amazing – I mean, we could have met on several german boards or blogs but: we met here :yahoo:

  56. Happy New Year. I would love in 2011 to start doing celebrity makeup. I have started freelance makeup artistry in 2010, so I am doing a lot in 2011 to get my name & work out there to attract celebrity clients. Thanks for the giveaway.

    1. If you would like to go for a step between: Try diplomats.
      Thats what I did several years ago. Was not looking for it but I met the Croatian ConsulΒ΄s wife (Croatia is the country I come from) on a charity party in DΓΌsseldorf in the early 90ies. She was looking for someone doing her make up and recommended me to a lot of interesting clients. I am not doing this anmore as my main job but the contacts remained and now other MUAs participate.

      Another thing I would suggest to do is: Find a photographer, doesnΒ΄t have to be a professional, mostly the passionated semi-professionals or people with a simple passion for photography and a good cam are better anyway. Means: Somebody you can work with and who has the opportunity to make very good photos of your work πŸ™‚ An up-to-date portfolio is important if you want to attract people. Another good thing about this is that you get used to different photography techniques, studio fl. photography and so on. Needs different make up.

  57. Hi Tatajna! What a great way to start a new year! You’re so generous..
    Ok, I subscribed.
    2010 wasn’t such a great year for me. I am just hoping 2011 is better. I want to clear my super-important exam and then use my powers for good:)
    And to finally, finally let go of my fear and learn driving!

    Hoping that 2011 is good to everyone else as well….Happy New Year!

  58. I’m an email subbie!

    My New Year 2011 Resolution: GET FIT! I bought an elliptical machine, work out on it every day, and have taken up yoga as well to make it all happen!

  61. Ladies, thank you so much for enjoying this giveaway :-* :-* :-*
    Please make sure that you subscribed to IMBB so that all your entries are valid :heart: :heart:

  62. 2010 wasn’t realy a good year for me..I got leuchemy and was in hospital for 6 months (now I’m at home till monday), I didn’t win any prizes and didn’t travel anywhere. so I hope 2011 will be a better year. a more healthier at least!

  63. Thanks for this amazing giveaway! I LOVE the pigments for this giveaway! πŸ™‚

    My plans for 2011 is to become a certified Personal Support Worker by April and get a job working as one by summer. I hope by the end of 2011, I can be accepted to the Nursing program. Other plans are to lose weight and cut down on eating in restaurants and junk food, become healthier. I also plan not to buy too much MAC makeup and consider other brands including drugstore brands as the quality might just be the same or similar for a lesser price. Other beauty plans include throwing out mascaras after 3 months of usage, better skin care, and use up my makeup before buying more. There is just so much ! lol! I also need to save up money and buy less so I can actually pay off my debts and have a better credit score ! =)

    I am subscribed to your blog πŸ™‚ thanks!

  64. Im in!=) I have subscribed and 2010 wasn’t my best years since my husband became sick and I had to spend the whole fall taking care of him so my plans for 2011 is to finish my education and get my law degree.

  65. Wow, what a great contest – thanks for the opportunity!

    My resolution for this new year is to be HAPPY. Not just marginally happy, but really and truly happy. I am going to get rid of everything in my life that don’t bring joy, and concentrate on having fun and loving life.

    Happy 2011!!!

  66. I am a subscirber! I love the pigment stacks. This year I will be finding a new job and improving the home.

  67. Happy New Year everyone!
    My new year resolution is exercise more and looking for a baby since I’ve been married for 4 years

  68. Hey! 2010 has been an awesome year for me. Not only did I become a permanent employee at my workplace, but I also got pregnant! Expecting our first little one in a few more months! Not long to go. Am just hoping for a great year ahead and hoping I’ll be an awesome mother! πŸ™‚

    I was reading imbb via google reader.. have no subscribed via email too. Thanks so much for making this international! Happy New Year!

      1. Hi Rati! Yeah it’s been quite a while. It’s been the holiday season so I spend much of my time with my family (well, after my busy office schedule.) How about you? How’s your new year?
        By the way, is the contest still up? If yes, here’s my answer:

        The last half of 2010 is quite a pain. I found myself gaining pounds months after months. Then the 3rd week of December 2010 came and my family and I decided to spend some quality time at Enchanted Kingdom. In one of the rides called “The Swan Lake”, I hopped into the swan-like boat with my younger sister and one of the tenants whisper in my ear, “Miss, I guess we’re overloading, I’m sorry”. An instant slap on my face. :spank: We decided that my dad replace me. From that moment in time, I promise to myself that I will LOSE WEIGHT, I MUST. I dedicate my site. to my neverending quest for a healthy lifestyle (so help me God). But nevertheless, I won’t deprive myself with some sumptuous delicacies. HAHA. And I’m being positive towards my goal this year. I got a feeling that 2011 is my year. So help me God (always.) O:)

  69. Happy New Year, Tatjana, and it’s so kind & generous of you to hold this great giveaway and thanks to Rati and IMBB too. Happy New Year to Rati and everyone at IMBB. My New Year’s resolution this year is……to lose weight (first and foremost) and secondly, to continue being there for my family (read: hubby and 2 sons) and keep loving and caring for them as always.

  70. “Tell us about your your plans for 2011. Or just share with us something special happened to you in 2010 that maybe enhanced your New Years resolutions.”
    Some of our friends are getting married so my goal is to look perfect at their wedding πŸ˜‰

  71. :yahoo: Happy New Year gals! That is one fine Give Away :woot:

    My new year’s resolution is to keep working to remain with myself, kindly, no matter what state of mind I am in, so even if, due to my confused emotions, all my nerves and inners and every fiber of my being wants me to run away, hide, anesthesize or hurt myself. I know in my mind what is true and not true, that I am never really that hideous person that I sometimes believe myself to be, but now I need to work to dare to trust upon it with my heart as well. Because everybody is completely worthy of love, regardless πŸ™‚

  72. My cousin just told me about this so I HAD to jump at this opportunity! My goal is to have a good complexion again.

  73. Happy New Year!! πŸ™‚ my plans for 2011 is to be more true to myself and accomplish more for my career. I also plan to take better care for my skin and no more being lazy to take my makeup off when I get home from work. Have more healthier food and to meet up with my friends more often.

  74. I’m a new email subscriber.

    One of my New Years resolutions is to eat healthier and incorporate exercise into my life.

  75. :victory: :rainbow: :kissing: :inlove: :heart: are a few things I wish for everyone in the New Year 2011! I quit smoking August 3rd of 2010, trying to maintain my weight, not stressing as much. Living, Learning, and Loving every single day! Thankful for my family and friends. Grateful for all of life’s blessings. :rose: Have a Wondrous and Blessed New Year. :rose:

  81. Lovely giveaway πŸ™‚

    Your giveaway reminds us to take care of our skin more so that the perfect canvas can be achieved πŸ™‚

    I started my own blog! Yey! I promised myself when I reach the age of 20 (I turned 20 last year), I should begin to have an outlet of all the things I find interesting. So there, I made sure that my 2010 did not end without creating my own blog πŸ™‚

    It still in it’s beginning stages, but I’m quite happy with how my posts turned out to be. It is also a way for me to practice my writing skills πŸ™‚

    Happy New Year!

  82. I’m already subscribed to IMBB

    Here are my new year resolution(s):-

    1/lose 3kgs and tone up
    2/eat healthy and drink plenty of water
    3/walk every morning without fail.

    The 3 above cos I have realised how important it is to take care of ur diet and exercise regularly cos if we dont start caring from a younger age then it becomes too late sumtimes when we grow old…
    my granny(mom’s mom) started taking care of her health ,diet n exercise from when she was young and today at the age of 80+ she can still do everything like go to the market,live alone,do housework,wakes up early does yoga,goes for a walk etc.Thank God she has no bp,diabetes,heart prob etc ..and she has had many falls but luckily her bones are still strong and nuthing happened to her except for sum minor sprain….
    on the other hand my husbands granny is also 80+ but she is in a very bad shape…she has severe osteoporosis and she’s fallen like 3 times and has had 3 major fractures and is now bed ridden..she has been living a very sedentary lifestyle,..no walking…not eating healthy calcium rich foods,no exercise etc…

    this has been an eye opener for me …

    4/start a course in may-june.(beauty or nutrition…yet to decide)
    this one cos i didnt get a chance to complete my education…my dad was ill and he passed away when i was around 19…i prefered to look after the family business and be with my mom and let my brothers study instead…i have no regrets at all…but since sum time ive been wanting to study but i’ve not gotten a chance or rather been lazy πŸ™

    5/not to get tempted buying cosmetics im not sure whether i will use.and make max use of what i have..

    the above cos i’ve bought too many cosmetics out of temptation…not even used them and have finally given them away to people who cant afford…sum people might be thinking fair enuff…but i think wants and desires are never ending and i have to finally learn how to control…buy only what i am sure i will make good use of…it’s hard earned money after all…

    6/read less ..might sound funny…but im addicted to reading and i have started getting puffy eyes

    this one i am not sure i’ll be able to do sumthing about πŸ˜› only prolly do sumthing about the puffy eyes of course

    Thanx πŸ™‚

    2010 has been the most life changing year in my life… this is the year that I learnt to love someone else more than myself… this is the year i cried when i saw someone for the first time… this is the year that i became a mother and I started to appreciate my mom more than ever….

    my resolution for 2011 is to be the best mother for my baby, to be her teacher as she learns to speak, to be her support as she learns to sit and to be her guide as she learns to walk… and to do this without losing myself as a woman… last few months, i was only being a mother… its time now to be a woman, a career woman, a wife, a daughter and a mother all at the same time… i resolve to not neglect my health, my home or my career and at the same time do everything i need to for the baby… so basically, i am gonna be a juggler on a treadmill….!! phew, wish me luck ppl….!

  105. hi.. thanks so much for telling me this giveaway via email..
    enter me please!!
    I’m a subscriber of your blog.. πŸ˜€
    my plans for 2011: *get a part-time job.
    * get high GPA
    * be more active on blog world

  106. Already a subbie ad so glad about it.

    2010 was a year packed with many experiences…my first job! a new city, new frends… colleagues…earning for the first time, my first lippie (hehe)…though all of it might sound like great learning experience it was rather a year that brought forward all my faults and negative points..just on 29 Dec of last year had an intense discussion with my bro and dad which gave me answers to how i can improve on ma bad points and be more responsible about my actions. and this year as i will be turning 21 and again making a fresh start in a new city for my post grad, i knew it is time for me to have this fresh start as an opportunity to learn from my mistakes and become a better person who is wiser and more mature. so that i can rightfully be called a 21 year old ‘adult’. πŸ™‚ time to drift from a girl to women! that’s what 2011 has in store for me! :blush: :blush:

  107. I stuck to my 2010 resolution, so its going to be the same in 2011….”Eat, drink and make merry, for tomorrow I may die”.
    The stuff looks awesome!

  108. Happy New Year to all the beauties πŸ™‚ …my resolution for 2011 is to do a beginner’s makeup course and practice doing my own nail art…apart from makeup…I’m planning to start doing some painting using oil and water paints…well thoses are my resolutions so wishing all the IMBB chicas all the best for the rest of the year πŸ˜‰

  109. 1. subscribed

  112. What an awesome giveaway, enter me please. My new years resolution is to focus more on my studies – no success so far lol – but it’s too early to tell.

  113. Hello..
    wow thanks for such a nice giveaway :rose:
    ……… I love those pigments :waytogo: .. I am drooling for them now .. :woot:

    what happened to me in 2010 was .. my Annual Dinner of University held on 14th feb , 2010.. I got done by salon , It was sunday , and I had booked a photographer to take my pics .. He opened his studio specially for me :yelo:
    I was looking very nice .. I was wearing a green and brown dress..

    But my hair were not so good .. I got curled .. :smug: they did not suit me well .. so I thought if I had got them straighten or ironed , I would look a lovely and could win lady of the evening title :wilt:

    So this helped me make my 2011 resolution that I won’t ever get curls in my hair in 2011.. I will just iron my hair :waytogo:

    My plans for 2011 : To get a simple elegant look by getting my hair rebonded :yahoo:

  118. Hello – I just subscribed to your blog via email & confirmed the subscription.

    My New Year’s resolution for 2011 is to commit to a study & exercise plan. Too often I stick to a schedule for a few weeks, and then completely ignore it for a few weeks…

    I’m also really excited for my husband’s trip to India in the coming months! I can’t wait to give him a long list of things to bring back for me!

  119. Hi,

    Wish you all a Very Happy New Year!

    We have just migrated to Canada, and the stress of all the changes and adjustments seem to have taken their toll on my skin, hair and weight. While on a desperate search to change all this for the better, I came across your blog and became a subscriber.

    My resolution for the new year is to take better care of myself. I’ve given a big list of Biotique products that I want my son to bring from India based on the reviews I read on this blog. Also would like to re-start the Surya Namaskara that I used to practice every day in India.

    All in all hope this year is the best of all – just like all the earlier ones that were the best ones ever!!!!

    2. The best thing that happened to me in 2010 is IMBB. I am so thankful to IMBB for giving me the ‘kick’ to start back on my skin care & beauty regime.

    Coming to new year resolutions:

    * Improvise cooking skills in terms of taste & exploring other cuisines.
    * Cutting down on my frequent visits( min. of twice monthly) to Mc.Donalds / KFC & Pizza Hut. To be realistic i want it to start with once in a month (jan1st & Feb14th) & then once in two months(apr 29th),on my BD(jul 27th) & wed ann.(aug 24th) & if i strictly follow this on dec 31st 2011.

    What would I do this year?

    1. Grow my blog, thereafterish., into a real business via Personal Styling Services, Ads, more giveaways and reviews.
    2. Audition for local community theater.
    3. Quit my job to go to training for the job of my dreams (Esthetics)
    4. Grow my writing portfolio so I can eventually, one day, unplug the need to go into a “job” every day.
    5. Do one Squeal/Blog/Brag worthy thing a month, be it go somewhere new, do something that frightens me, or just read a book I’ve never finished from cover to cover.
    6. Be healthier (with many, many different methods I’ve implemented in the past).
    7. Be able to bike 20 miles. Do a 20 mile bike ride for fun.

    These are just a few goals, not resolutions, I’d like to accomplish this year, because, by the time 2012 comes along, I’ll be very close to 30 years old, and I want to complete these goals by that time!

    Thanks for hosting this!

    Mae Lu

  135. My plan for 2011 is enjoy with my friends and family (the next month I’m going to be aunt and I’m very excited) and I want to loose 10 kg (maybe a dream because I like too sweet meals).

  138. Happy late New Year.
    I am a subscriber already so enter me lol
    For the new year I want to be better about writing in my journal and being more active in some of the communities I’m in. I’m also going to try and downsize a bit more (which I don’t even know how I’m going to manage that because I already downsized a great deal last year) because me and my boyfriend are hoping to be able to move out of our current living situation in August and hopefully into a better one. I’m worried about that, but trying to be hopeful. Not only do I have to downsize my apartment things but then I remember I have a insanely huge storage unit (or really my mom does but it’s up to me to get rid of it and I do have some things stuck in the mix, but it’s a dramatic long story) to clean out and deal with. Right now I’m thinking about the like 15+ boxes of books I have in there and that when I sort them down (which I only really have certain ones in mind I want to keep) I can sell them which is enticing. But that probably won’t take place til this spring/summer when the weather is nicer.

  145. Hi!
    Super giveaway! I love and I am using only natural products, so the Alva products are very appealing to me!
    For 2011, I only have one burning desire: to get my dream job at the European Commission in Brussels!
    Thanks, I am following with the e-mail address I left for the comment too!

  146. I have one resolution this year and that is to spend on things that I need and stop buying impulsively. My boyfriend always encourages me to save and I could only achieve this by controling my spending habits. Hopefully, I would be able to do this.

    Thanks πŸ™‚

  147. i lost somebody really close to me last year and i realized that life really is short and i want to make the most of it. i have little girl so i want to be healthier physically and emotionally for her so i would be able to enjoy motherhood to the fullest. i’ve decided to take better care of myself by being more conscientious about exercising and dieting. i will start running this year and i’ve decided to lessen significantly my meat intake.

  148. Well, 2010 has been really wonderful. For 2011 my new year’s resolution is all about being more focused! I would like to accomplish more and to do so, I have been practicing for the past few days the art of being focused and not idle. I had a lot of lazy days last yr, hehe, and I think I can achieve more if I work on that aspect of my life and improve for the better

  149. Ok So 2010 was exciting for me in the sense that I finally graduated :)))))…It was such an amazing feeling and also I suddenly felt like a grow up ready to show the world what I’m made of:P..Well the world has to wait since I got admission in Mphil Program:P..Had no idea I had to start studying right after I thought I had finished:P
    Ok coming to 2011, I m really hoping to gain a few pounds. :S….I tend to keep shedding off weight due to my bad eating habits. I really hope to start working on that.
    Secondly I’m a real spendthrift. I hope to get rid of this bad habit of mine and start saving some cash:P
    Lastly I hope and pray to be a good human being as well as a good Muslim Inshaa Allah.

    Happy New Year to everyone:)

  150. 2010 wasn’t a very good year, so I hope that 2011 will be better. I wish that my country won’t suffer more from the economic crisis.
    My plans for this year…hm…well, i hope that i will study more, i will become a better person, i will get a better social life and i will learn more about fashion and beauty!

  158. This 2011 I’ll work harder and dream bigger. There’s always farther to go and more to do and mountains to climb that’s what I look forward to. I promise my son that we will spend his 7th birthday in Hong kong Disneyland and I’ll never break that promise. He is my greatest joy in life and he’ll always be first in my heart. =)

  159. This is a very generous giveaway Tatjana!

    1) I already subscribe to IMBB.
    2) As for 2011 resolutions, I want to take better care of my health as I fell ill quite a lot in 2010. This includes eating well (I’m quite under weight), taking meds when I need to (I’m quite lazy & inconsistent about this) and doing yoga (I love yoga, but I hate doing it by myself). It might not seem like much, but I felt physically very weak in 2010 & I really want to change that this year.

  160. Happy New Year everyone!
    My email is already subscribed

  170. Hi,

    Happy new year!!!
    Hrm..talking about my plans for 2011, it would be learn more about skincare and makeup things. Early of 2010 (Maybe march or april), i just started to know more about skincare, it was because i had a serious breakout that time. I’m trying hard to know why is that happened and i came accross forum, reading how people solve this and also people talking about skincare, fashion. I’m amaze, i don’t really read anything online. But after that i’m so into forum, active in comment and reading.

    In Nov, i started my own blog!!! But still so new and still learning. Haha… i dont have much time to write and i don’t have a camera so it’s kinda hard for me to took the pic for blog. So i’m kinda slow in posting. Hope 2011 will be a better year.

    Happy new year and all the best.

    2. 2010 was very special for me, I got married to the love of my life, wentt to Maldives(last paradise on earth) for honeymoon and life was great except for 2 things.
    a.) my husband and I are still stuck with jobs in different cities, that too so far apart
    that we need to take ann hour flight to see each other πŸ™
    b.) i cud not defeat fibromyalgia yet, partly succeeded till i got married but after that got busy with work n stuff.

    So 2011 goals are
    1. To make sure we move to same place or atleast drivable distance of each other
    2. To kick fibromyalgia’s ass , a syndrome caused by unknown reason n giving me pain everyday cant keep me down. I’ll win and fibromyalgia wud lose n once again i’ll live life bindaas without any pain πŸ™‚ beware fibromyalgia here i come

    After writing sooo much i wud love to enter for the giveaway as all th stuff seems soooo awesome! However, I dunno if I qualify as I stay in Amreeka…..

    My plans for the new year are to help my son be accepted into a college for next year. He realized at the beginning of this school year he needed to get his grades up. It is a bit too late I’m afraid. So, he and I will continue to apply and hope for the best. Then comes preparing him for the new phase in his life. Oh, boy!

  179. Happy New Year! I’m an email subscriber. I’ll be having baby #2 in Feb so my plans for 2011 is to take care of the new baby & my toddler. Hopefully they will get along! Also, to lose all the baby weight..I need to lose 30-40 lbs!

  184. Hi Tatjana,
    Thanx for hosting this giveaway…. Happy new year to all at IMBB. Am already a subscriber.

    Well, 2010 saw me overcoming some of my worst fears – piercing. I had tried getting my nose pierced three times but came back from the shop after seeing people shouting in pain and even fainting. But finally, in Oct 2010 I went to a qualified cosmetologist with my friend who did it all without any pain at all. And the compliments i got for it, specially from people very close to me, were awesome. Now, thanks to some added makeup knowledge from IMBB, i simple match my nose ornament with my makeup and dress for those special occasions and get all compliments. In 2011, I want to overcome many other fears too.
