My Blog Turns Two! + Giveaway [Closed]

My Blog Turns Two! + Giveaway [Closed]

Hi everyone! Lots of great and exciting news from this part of the web! First off, you probably noticed that I’m now self-hosted at and have a new blog layout. Second, I started my blog back on June 26, 2015, meaning Ever Impractical is a full two years old! And third, yes, you read right: I’m hosting my first giveaway in celebration!

I hope you like my blog’s new look and style! I’ve been interested in changing it for a while now, and have wanted to really personalize it to fit myself more. That said, between the new style and being self-hosted, let me know if you spot anything that isn’t looking/working right…

First off, a small thank-you to anyone who followed my blog or liked a post over the past two years. It’s always great to see other people interested in what I have to say!

But the bigger thank-you goes out to everyone who’s helped, inspired, or supported me. I’ve met some amazing people in the blogging universe – the people who supported my ideas, who were welcoming and willing to lend a hand, and who taught me how to be a better blogger. Without this personal connection, I probably wouldn’t still be blogging. So everyone, a great big THANK YOU!

And now, onto what I know everyone is here for – the giveaway! This is a US-only giveaway. Sorry, all of my international friends.

The goodies:


Disclaimer: I’ve chosen products that I’ve used before and loved. I’ve purchased all of these with my own money.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso – This is my favorite red lippie. I love true, classic reds, and prefer the liquid lipstick formula for long-lasting, vibrant color without any smudging, transfer, or fading.

Nyx HD Blush in Pink the Town – This is my everyday blush. It’s a very pretty warm pink shade that is pretty pigmented. I think it can work for a lot of skin tones.

Peter Thomas Roth Meet Your Mask Set – I really like the Irish Moor Mud Mask, and have also enjoyed the Cucumber Gel Mask. This set comes with samples of both masks, plus three others so everyone has something that will suit their skin’s needs.

Sheet masks from Tonymoly, Mizon, and Skinfood – Thanks to blogging, I got really into skincare, and ultimately K-Beauty. And the biggest K-Beauty product seems to be sheet masks!

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray – I love how long this makes my makeup last!

The rules:

This contest runs until July 17 at 11:59 PM EST. The winner will be randomly selected and then contacted by me via email on July 18. If I do not hear back from the winner by July 21 at 11:59 PM EST, a second name will be pulled.

There are multiple ways to enter – each way will be considered one entry into the drawing, for a total of up to five entries per person. Please comment below with your first name, email, which platforms you’re following/entering the contest with, and the appropriate usernames, etc.

This contest is open to US residents only, ages 18 and up.

  1. Firstly, congrats on self hosting! I still have yet to make the change. Lol.
    Secondly, congrats on this huge milestone! (I’m close to my two years as well!) I’m so proud of you for making it this far. I have come across other bloggers who gave up within months of starting and I’m glad to see more and more bloggers pursue this journey because even if it’s just for fun, we really do learn a lot from each other and we often make friendships along the way. And I’m really glad I met you through the #BeautiesOnFire collaboration.
    By the way, what a great giveaway! Tony moly masks are amazing and like you, I’ve gotten into skincare as well since I began blogging. I’m beginning to try more k-beauty products and so far it’s going well. Can’t wait to discover more.
    And sorry I made this comment super long, lol. As you know I’m following you through WP reader and through IG (@ayrgalaxyblog)
    I cannot wait to see where your blog takes you doll! Here’s to many many more blogging years!!
