Sigma Brushes, The 2011 Oscars and a Giveaway Winner!

Before I announce the giveaway winner I wanted to show you the Sigma makeup brushes I bought a couple of weeks ago that just arrived in the mail. I decided to go with the Naughty in Black Travel Kit. Along with the 7 brushes that came with the kit I received two free brushes: a Duo Fibre brush and a blending brush as seen on the right.

For these nine brushes I only paid $49.00 USD plus shipping and handling which I think was only $5.00. Not bad, hey? I can't wait to start using them.

And did you hear actors James Franco and Anne Hathaway (and her boobs) will be co-hosting the 83rd Academy Awards in February??? Whaaa?! I love it! I can't wait! Although Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin did a great job last year, the Oscars could definitely use some fresh, younger and exciting talent for a change. I think they'll do an amazing job and will draw in a younger audience that might not normally watch the very long (and sometimes boring) awards. And the buzz around Hollywood is that they both might be nominated for Oscars themselves - James Franco for "127 Hours" and Anne Hathaway for "Love & Other Drugs." Interesting...I'll definitely be watching. Will you?

Okay, and now onto the giveaway winner. First of all I want to thank all of you who entered my contest. If you didn't win this time, don't worry - there will be many more giveaways coming up in the future I promise! So, who is the lucky girl who wins all this???


Congratulations to Annette of A Daily Dose of Kaartehan! I'll be emailing you for your address!

I hope you're all having a good week. Happy Hump Day!

I really need to step up my James Franco stalking efforts. Maybe we'll become friends and I'll get an invite to the Oscars? Okay, it's not that likely but a girl can dream...

Tamera's Take said...

I'll definitely be watching the Oscars! I book it off work every year! And as soon as I get a "look" from one of the guys, all I have to say is "Do you book off work for the Super Bowl?", and that's the end of that conversation. Hahaha!
