1 Year Blogging Anniversary! Plus my first Giveaway!

Today marks my 1 year blogging anniversay!  Exactly 1 year ago today I posted my first post, Sephora Favorites Superstar 2014.   Looking back at the pictures I posted, I am happy to see that I have improved a lot!  At least in my opinion, the pictures were so dark!  When I first started Sandie's Stash I used Weebly as a free option to try out blogging and to see if I even really liked it.  I have since moved my blog over to Squarespace, and so far so good!  I wasn't so sure I'd have enough to say or that anyone would even read it but blogging had interested me since I first started reading blogs.  I am still learning just what I can do, but that is part of the fun of it!  It was my sister and husband who were the ones saying that I should give it a go and so I did.  I found that I do have a lot to say and maybe from a different perspective, being over the ripe old age of 40+!  I have chatted with some great people who share my love of all things beauty related, and who also let me in on some products I may not have tried otherwise (I have found a great bunch of enablers!).  

I have been thinking on doing a giveaway for a while but thought that I would wait and do my first one on my first year blogging anniversary!  I picked up the love is...kindness 13 pc makeup brush kit from Royal and Langnickel at Imats this year for just this purpose.  I picked up a few brushes from them last year and went back this year for a few more.  I am loving their crease and angle shader brushes!  These 2 brushes are included in the set I am going to give away.  Royal and Langnickel brushes are some of the softest I have used.  I wanted to give a set of brushes as they are one of my biggest weaknessess, especially at Imats!
