Honey Pot: Mascara Winner & BeautyTicket.com Reminder


Hey chicas! Someone’s Friday is going to get a little bit better!
Remember THIS Mascara Monday where I reviewed Revlon DoubleTwist Volumizing mascara? Oh yeah, girl…..I SO wasn’t diggin’ that mascara. Many of you questioned why I even gave it a “2” when it really deserved a “1”. True, true…but I liked the uniqueness of a wand. Whether it worked or not is another story.

I digress….

One lucky lady will win this mascara and provide us with her own written review (with pictures). I am excited to get a mascara review from a different point of view. According to random.org the winner is:

!!Mary Joyce!!

Congratulations, darling…shoot me an email at Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com and we’ll get that mascara to you. Can’t WAIT to see your review.

I still have one more giveaway going on. Click HERE to get details.

Enjoy your weekend!!

Honey Pot: Garfield Announces contest winners….

I would just like to say that…Clumps of Mascara readers are wonderful! I know, yall already knew that but the entries from this past contest were hilarious! I read each and every one of them (I mean, I have to…they come to my Blackberry, lol). I thought I had a crazy childhood but some of you all take the cake! I wasn’t even going to try to pick the WINNER from this one.

So I asked Mama Clumps to choose the funniest childhood story and she couldn’t choose just one either. Sooo, we have four! I’m not sure what the other gifts will be but I’m sure good ole’ Garfield will think of something.

And now….our winners!

First Place!
Shel

The only pet my mother would let my sister and I have were gerbils. Being girls, we would pick them up by their tails because we were afraid they’d bite us. One day, I remember my 8 year old sister picking up one of the gerbils and she said “hey look!” and started swinging him by his tail. The next thing I knew, the gerbil was across the room and my little sister is holding the tail in her hand. We freaked and thought we killed the gerbil. We took him in the bathroom and patched his “stub” and Stubby, as he was then known, lived longer than any of our other gerbils (poor thing).

My sister is 35 years old now, we still talk about this story and laugh.


First Runner Up!
The Asian Girl

When I was about 4 years old, I had an irrational fear of the backs of puzzle pieces. You know, the empty cardboard space on the back? …Yeah. My sister (younger by 20 months) realized this weakness and decided to exploit it by scattering puzzle pieces (back-side up, of course) on the staircase to keep me away.


Second Runner Up!
MsYaya!

I remember when I was in my sewing mode (oh I was a fancy four year old thank you very much) and I decided to dress my Barbie and Arbies (you know the ones from the dollar store – their poor legs are squeezable because they’re hollow?). So the only dilemma was that I didn’t have fabric, and little miss yaya (really – I was 4) couldn’t go to Mood in NY, so she went to the living room and cut up some fabric for free (talk about freebies). Made a whole curtain for the dolls to change behind and get dressed. Even my momma liked it and said it was mighty pretty. Then she went into the living room and saw the missing holes in the curtains. Now THAT sight? No no it was NOT pretty. I caught a beating so hard I thought it’d last forever… (it didn’t so don’t go running to call ACS!)

Third Runner Up!
Kiarah
ooooooh I miss the ice cream truck! When I was little my mom never gave me change when the ice cream truck came. He would ring and ring and ring that bell and I wanted nothing more than to chase the truck and get some goodies! Well, one summer my favorite aunt let me come stay with her in New Jersey on the army base. They had this wonderful playground in the back. When I got there my cousin yelled when the ice cream truck came ringing and so did I. She told us to ask her husband and he gave us both some change. We ran to that truck and I got the ice cream I IDOLIZED – Mario Brothers ice cream with the red gum ball nose. I loved Mario. When we got back in the house, I stood by the door and licked it for the first time. It was so sweet. Don’t you know the whole head fell off the stick and onto the floor! I was crushed! All that hoping. Well, everyone laughed and I wanted to cry but it was okay becayse just about every week after that he bought us ice cream and I ate the mario brothers (carefully) until I was sick of it. Best summer ever!

Ladies, send me an email at Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com to confirm your name, email address and story. Be sure to also provide your mailing address. You have 3 days to do this. If you do not come forward, Mama Clumps will choose another winner. Trust me…she has a list! Thank you all for participating. Stay tuned for the next Clumps of Mascara giveaway!

The Honey Pot: Giveaway for Newbies, last day!


You have one more day to enter the contest. The stories are hilarious! I know I did some crazy things in my childhood but some of yall take the cake.

Don’t forget to enter the contest HERE for your chance to snag a bundle of newbie goodies.

And if you have already submitted, head on back to read some of the childhood memories.

Another one of my fondest?
When I was in the 4th grade I was fascinated by rubber cement. Why this was even allowed in classrooms, I don’t know. We used it for a class project and when no one was looking, I put it in my bookbag. Only my teacher saw me. She ended up calling my parents. My Mother confronted me THAT evening and I lied. But my lying skills were never up to par and neither were my bottle tightening skills. My Mother could smell the rubber cement that I hid under my bed. My silly self forgot to tighten the top and it spilled all over the floor..ruining the carpet. I stole, lied and was a carper ruin-er. I won’t even tell yall how my parents handled that one but let’s just say I learned my lesson!

Craziness…

Happy Birthday, Jasmine!!!

Have a wonderful Tuesday, beautiful people.

Honey Pot Giveaway Reminder: Garfield’s Stash


Garfield has asked me to remind you all to enter his contest. He and I both are enjoying reading the entries. I can’t remember who wrote it but the reader that said she put her Barbie dolls on the ceiling fan and then flew them off and called it “Circus Barbies” had me rollin’.

And Garfield practically choked up a hairball laughing at the reader who posted the story about her sister painting her in red fingernail polish.

Ohhh, the memories.

Don’t forget to enter the contest HERE for your chance to snag a bundle of newbie goodies.

And if you have already submitted, head on back to read some of the childhood memories.

One of my fondest?
Forcing my little sister to take a huge bite out of deodorant.

Hilarity in its finest.

Enjoy your weekend, fam!

The Honey Pot: Giveaway for Newbies!


Ready to stick your hand in the Honey Pot?

It’s time for another giveaway! This time it’s from our dear friend Garfield.

“B…who is Garfield?”

You know….this guy…

G-Field with his honey, HK.

Yep, I love him. I watched all of his shows growing up and adore lasagna just like him. And don’t even get me started on vegetarian style lasagna. OMG!!

But we digresss…look the the giveaway that Garfield is sponsoring…


Milani Glimmer Stripes in Berry Glimmer
Studio Tools large Shadow brush
Maybelline XXL Curl Power mascara
InColor FabuLiner liquid eye liner
NYC Liquid Lip Shine in Cherrywood

Not sure where he got this load of generosity from but we are grateful! I’m assuming that while I was away at work he peeked in my make-up stash, saw my favorite drugstore items and then purchased dupes!

To win these goodies, simply leave me a comment telling me your favorite childhood memory, toy or television show. It helps if they are more dramatic/silly than mine..

Be sure to include your email address.

…although imagining that a stuffed cat actually purchased make-up is REALLY out there. This giveaway is open to my international sisters (and brothers) so yall enter too! You have until the end of the day on Wednesday, February 24, 2009 to enter.

Hop to it!
