AMW Gives: L'Oreal Wear Infinite Pressed Eye Shadow Quad (Contest Closed)


Good Thursday everyone!!!  Did you wake up with a good mood?  I guess you should , Friday is just around the corner!  Everyone who reads my blog would know that I'm a very cheerful person, you'd think that nothing will go wrong in my life.  You're wrong though, I've gone through so much in life I can definitely write a book about it!  The only setback?  It can bore you though! *winks*

What turned me into a very positive individual?  The fact that I've been down a lot of times, each time I have the tiniest "up" moment, I enjoy it as much as I can and thank the Lord for it.  I grab on to the happy and positive moments and store them inside my memory bank and hold onto them each time I needed to!  It's more like investment!  I can hear myself saying: "I have survived it before, there's nothing different about it now!" 

I guess that's my secret!  Well it's not a secret anymore! You're probably wondering why I'm on a sentimental mode, I should just get to the point and talk about the contest right?  *giggles*  

The sentimental side of me has to do with the prizes I will give!  It's a special L'Oreal Wear Infinite Pressed Eye Shadow Quad which isn't available locally.  The quad is so simple yet enticing! 

L-R Peaceful Spirit and A Little Bit of Glitz


Now you see why I got so sentimental right?  "A Little Bit of Glitz" quad has "HOPE" written all over the cover!  And it's a message from me to YOU!  In life, whatever you're going through, open up your heart and mind and believe that there is HOPE.  I've seen hope in each and every situation I've been through, and so far, the sparkle of hope inside me gave me the strength and willpower to hold onto my dear li'l life, and there's so much things out there way more important to look out for!

I am not saying that my life is perfect right now, I still have issues, actually, a lot of issues!   But I always tell myself --- "Life is too short....enjoy it while you can with the people you love and who loves you back"



As for the contest mechanics:
1. Contest is open to ALL Readers, locally and internationally.
2. Comment with your name and email address.  One comment per person, no duplicates please.
3. Answer this question: "What gives you hope each time you're going through tough times?"
4. Contest starts today and will end October 9, 2010.  One winner will receive the 2 gorgeous quads.
5. There's no right and wrong answer, so the winner will be randomly chosen using my dearest Fruit Machine!

It may be superficial to give out makeup when talking about serious stuffs about LIFE, the point of this contest is for us to share what gives us the drive to move forward in times of need.  This may even be an inspiration to others who needs  the extra boost of positivity.

Prizes comes from yours truly!  I love it dearly I never even dare open it or use it!  The quads will be sent with a kiss (promise, no saliva included) *LOL*

Click comment and goodluck!!!
Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

    What gives me hope in times of struggle is that, there is a better choice to live your life (Even with your struggle), either let yourself drown with misery or choose to pick yourself up. It's hard to be affected with these things, because it will affect your life as well. And I choose to pick myself up, because I know I am better than that and great friends specially the love of my life keeps me sane and assures me that everything is okay. Most importantly amongst all, I know that there is a reason that I am going through it, because the lord is trying to teach me something, that in time I will understand. That gives me hope.

  2. "What gives you hope each time you're going through tough times?"

    I get hope from God, tough times are what I think His way of telling or making me feel that I'm kind of straying away. I get hope and strength from the fact that like all problems, everything will pass. Every worry and problem that I have has an ending, I just need to have faith and do something about it. Plus I know that I have all my loved ones ready to hear me out and help out in any way they could. :)

    What gives you hope each time you're going through tough times?

    It is my family who ultimately gives me hope each time I make a big mistake in life. They never fail to give encouraging words for me to ponder on.

    BUT for small petty mood swings and for some glitches in life. SHOPPING will never let any girl down!!! Oooh, the pretty designs of bags, shoes, and garments and not to mention the gorgeous colors of make-ups instantly takes my mind into another world! After shopping, I feel like I could stand up and face all of my problems. ;P

    What gives me hope each time I'm going through tough times? My mom. She is a single mom and I really idolize her and her way of bringing me up. During tough times, I always think of my mom and it always give me strength to fight through struggles knowing that what I am going through is nothing to what she has gone through. She is truly a very strong girl and that is what encourages me to not give up during struggles.

    My little girl, yana, she gives me not only HOPE but also inspiration to go on. Life is hard, we all know it, sometimes I want to give up but seeing her smiling at me as if telling me that she needs me to be there for her vanishes every little doubt I have in me. With my dear hubby by my side, I can say that there is always HOPE flickering in our hearts, it may be the tiniest but we can fuel it up to be as big as a wild fire.

    Whew.. Ms. Nikki, nakakahawa yung pagiging senti mo this morning a.. =)

    "What gives you hope each time you're going through tough times?"

    It is knowing that God never gives us trials that we cannot overcome. He knows us better than anyone else, even better than how we know ourselves!

    It may seem that trials and bad things in life will just ruin us. But He is omniscient and knows that it will will make us a better person.

    Lastly, he will never abandon us whatever happens. Through friends, families, loved ones, or even through strangers. He is always there.

    I would like to share this poem with you...

    Footprints in the Sand

    One night I had a dream.

    I dreamed I was walking along the beach
    with the Lord..

    Across the sky flashed scenes from my life..
    For each scene, I noticed two sets of
    footprints in the sand,
    one belonging to me, and the other to the Lord..

    When the last scene of my life flashed before me,
    I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
    I noticed that many times along the path of my life
    there was only one set of footprints.
    I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
    and saddest times in my life.

    This really bothered me
    and I questioned the Lord about it:
    "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
    you'd walk with me all the way.
    But I have noticed that during the most
    troublesome times in my life
    there is only one set of footprints.
    I don't understand why
    when I need you most you would leave me."

    The Lord replied:
    "My precious child, I love you and would
    never leave you.
    During your times of trial and suffering,
    when you see only one set of footprints, it was then
    that I carried you."

    What give me hope when im going through tough times differ each time. There's a lot going on my life right now and things that were working as cheer-me-uppers before ( such as icecream,sweets, shopping, etc) are not as effective anymore. What I do now is I think of a mantra, say, "What wont kill me will only make me stronger." and think of those things Ive already gone through and have endured. Prayers are very powerful too ^_^

    "What gives you hope each time you're going through tough times?"

    I would say that in times of difficulties, the only thing that gives me hope is my FAITH. I believe that faith is the basis of every person who succeed. I, as a believer of Christ, it is very important for me to trust on Him in every way. So, why should i worry, i have a very big God, a God that is bigger than my problems.

    As far as i know God, who is Holy and Righteous. He will do what He says.

    Matthew 6:34
    34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

    In tough times, do not worry. Just have faith and trust Him. :)

    God Bless and Bless God!

    "What gives you hope each time you're going through tough times?"

    It'll have to be telling myself that life does go on, even though it seems as if it's not. There's always something that's going to be troubling you and each time, you'll have to fight it and overcome it. Life would be dull and unsatisfying if nothing wrong happened. You learn from them, just like when you were young and touched a boiling stove and knew from then on to not try it again!

    Besides from that, encouraging words from my family and friends, a good talk with a close person and chocolate are all the necessities I need when going through a tough time. But you've got to remember, some things you just can't fix (such as losing a loved one) and you've got to accept that and move on. I have, it was difficult I must admit, but you do realize afterwards that life goes on and you need to go on with it. :)

    If there is one blessing that I have continuously thanked God for in all my prayers, it's the people in my life. My family, good solid set of friends and even the good natured officemates I have are always in my prayer. I regularly check your website, clicking around your past entries, and noting which ones I will enevtually get (when my credit card can handle another more swipe) and today I found myself thinking about them again. They're not just blessings, I realized today, they are the ones that give me hope. I just talk to them, spend time with them, and laugh with them about the most random things, and almost immediately, i feel better. Love gives us hope. Whether it be love for someone or someone's love for you :)

    I tell myself that everything that is happening in my life has a purpose. It may be to teach me a lesson about something I did wrong. It may be to teach me something new about life that will be useful for my growth. Everything has a purpose. These tough times are part of the journey of called life.

    My concept of hope is tied to my spiritual beliefs. Faith in the Divine Providence gives me an assurance, confidence, and lifeline that things will work out for the better. The only way to cope with any hardships in life is our expectancy and reliance on promising possibilities.

    What gives me hope when I'm down is simply thinking of all that I have, that some others don't.

    I might be struggling with assignments, but then I think of those without a chance to learn.

    I might be screaming inside my head, all angry at my family, then I think of the many orphans around.

    I might be bored of the same old food around me, then I give thanks that I actually have food on the table.

I think how lucky I am that I only that problem while others have a lot. I try to be thankful. If I can't take the problem out of my mind I talk to my dad and he'll tell me to pray. We'll talk about the problem , and from there, I know everything will be fine.

    What gives me hope is my family and most specifically my husband. He is such a hard worker and deserves everything he has now. He has never been afraid of sacrifice and going beyond the call of duty. That's why whenever we go through trying times I hold on to the fact that we're in it together and we give each other strength.

    God gives me hope every time I am going through a rough time. I had incidents in my life where God had showed me that no matter what happens He is always listening and answering my prayers. When I am experiencing doubt in myself, when I’m encountering a problem and when my grandmother died it was God that helped me through it all. He showed me that I had someone who I can lean on and share my problems and burdens. And every time I pray I always feel at ease and a sense of comfort knowing that everything will be okay.

    What gives me hope is that I'm still alive and kicking. Finding out that I have cancer last year was an earth shattering revelation for me but because I have an uber supportive family and friends plus a very loving boyfriend to boot, I made it through. I still am not sure if the cancer is truly gone but having faith in oneself and in the miracles of the One up there helps me make it through each and every day :)

    It keeps me hoping to know that my family loves me no matter what mistake I've made.

    "What gives you hope each time you're going through tough times?

    (1)GOD.God really helps me see the light whenever I'm in my darkest hour. He will always be there to listen, to guide and to protect me from any harm that's coming my way. Prayer is really a blessing.
    (2)Family and Friends. They always support me whenever I'm in a pinch. Through happy times and sad times, they are always there to listen and to cheer me up.
    (3)Future. There are a lot of things that we can do in the future. It is the unknown that allows us to live our life to the fullest. We also live once so why not make it right and enjoy it. With this in mind, I make sure that I keep a positive outlook and enjoy every bit of my life with my loved ones.
    These are what gives me hope during tough times. :)

  63. That's a nice question. :)

    Like most of your readers, I put my hope in the Lord. There is no other source of hope, really. People, even the people you love, will fail and disappoint you. But the Lord never will that's why I put my trust and hope on him.

    As the Good Book says,
    Even youths grow tired and weary,
    and young men stumble and fall;
    but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.

    They will soar on wings like eagles;they will run and not grow weary,they will walk and not be faint.
    - Isaiah 40:30-31

  64. God gave me people who are by my side always, especially on my tough times. They are the ones who help me and gives me hope, constantly reminds me that God has a greater plan ahead for me, the hard times are just road blocks that I need to get through.

    Though I do not affirm religion, I do believe that there is someone high above who knows about everything that has or will happen in our world.

  67. God's love always gives me hope.
    I always turn to this bible verse when faced with challenges.
    Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.
    And let endurance have its perfect result so that you may be perfect and complete lacking in nothing.
    James 1:2-4

  68. My parents gave me hope every time there is a problem going on...Even sometimes they can't help me, they are always in my side to cheer me up and they always told me that there is no problem that can't be solve!
    My boyfriend also encourage me to this: Every time I have a problem I always tell god that "God I have a Problem" then my bf told me that I must change it to "Problem I have a GOD"....So that problems will never be my problem!

  69. Tough times…who doesn’t have one or who have not encountered one? May it be as simple as what color of make-up to complement your wardrobe or as complex as letting go of the one you love because it’s the right thing to do. Interesting isn’t it? But what’s more fascinating is how we hold on to the spark of hope that lies ahead in our journey through the valley of darkness. The anticipation that this too shall pass and we can put ourselves or lives back together again. What gives us hope is that amidst the challenges of life, hope still floats…

    When going through tough times I always tell myself that this is just now, that it will be better tomorrow or the day after.. or sometime soon. I believe that life is just one big equation and if you are negative now, sooner or later it will balance out to positive :)

  73. when i'm so down in the dumps, i think of the people who have helped and supported and believed in me to find the strength to hang on. i owe them so much to just give up hope. also i think of my cats and my nephew.
