Super Sunday #7 : Partial Feeds Can Kiss My…

Welcome to The Best Beauty Blog Super Sunday series where it’s a time to chill out and reflect on the past week.   As well as filling you in on any hot goss on The Best Beauty Blog, expect some link love and a teaser of what to expect in the following week.

Hi ladies, how was your week?

On Friday, I went to the “Problogger’s Event” – basically a bloggers’ conference to learn about how to improve on blogging and what opportunities it can bring you.  I don’t know…I feel like a small fish in a big ocean…I wondered whether I should quit blogging…simply because I don’t think I will ever be good enough – especially as I have been so stupid to choose a name like The Best Beauty Blog for my beauty blog and it’s clearly NOT the best!  Anyway, something for me to think about…

This weekend has been busy as I have friends from Sydney come to visit.  Thus, you must forgive me for a short and sweet post for today.  Or you may be secretly glad because you’re sick of reading about me every single day of the week??!!  Hehe.  I’m not sure if 7 days of posting is too full-on for you guys, so let me know if you like my daily updates or you prefer 3-4 posts per week.

Hi ladies, how was your week? I cannot believe one week flies past just like that. It’s gearing up to be a pretty hot summer here in Melbourne, methinks. Had yum cha after church today so bang goes my diet. Egg tarts get me every time! Feeling a bit sad though because my family back in Scotland had a mini reunion this weekend – one of my sisters returned from Spain (she works as an English teacher there), another returned from London (she’s a lab rat) and another just got back from holiday in Milan to reunite with the rest of the members of my family. I have 3 younger sisters and 3 younger brothers!!! And I’m missing out on all the crazy times we have together… *sad face* Never mind, I am having a better time in front of my MacBook… >_<

The stylish Sam awarded me with the “Kreativ Blogger Award” – thank you gorgeous!  I’m a big fan of Sam’s fashionable blog because she wears clothes that I wish I could wear.  She oozes sophistication!

Anyway, the rules of this tag is to share 7 random things about yourself and tag other bloggers, so here I go…with a bit of cheating…

Here’s the link to 10 (instead of 7) random things about me (which I wrote earlier this year) and I tag any blogger who is reading this and wants to be tagged!

Hi ladies, how has your week been?

My week has been very busy and most of it was spent recovering from the epic weekend that was ABBW – which you will hopefully get to read about next week when I can find suitable words to express how epic it was…

The Best Beauty Blog Hot Goss

Apart from that, I have successfully migrated to a bigger, better and faster server so hopefully, this site won’t take so long to load.  If you do notice anything odd, please let me know and I will try and rectify the situation as soon as possible.

Also, it’s celebration time as The Best Beauty Blog broke all previous records and got a mountain of traffic from the exclusive GASP story a few days ago.  Thank God I had migrated to a new server last weekend!!  Of course, it was a one-off and I don’t know when it’ll happen, if ever, again.  But thank you all for the support.

I could yap on forever but I know what you’re all here for…you want to know who won the big massive giveaway right?  Well, I spent my entire Saturday evening, counting and verifying all entries (and disqualifying those who didn’t follow the rules and deleting duplicate entries), and altogether, there was a huge 858 entries!!  That’s a LOT!!!

I also want to thank everyone for the lovely birthday messages they left me.  I have also noted all the suggestions and I hope I can cater to your needs with my future posts…and videos!!  Yes, people requested videos from me??!!  Are you crazy?  LOL.  Do you really want my face plastered on your computer screen?  LOLOL.

Anyway, the winner of the giveaway, chosen by random.org, is…

The weather in Melbourne has been amazing recently and I’ve been slapping on the SPF before enjoying the sunshine.  To quench my thirst on these sunny days, I have found a healthier alternative to Diet Coke and it comes in the form of Cocobella Coconut Water.  As part of Nuffnang Product Talk, I was sent 4 flavours – Straight Up, Mango, Pink Guava and Pineapple – to test and oh boy, they are rather addictive in a non-caffeine way.  My favourite would have to be the Pink Guava followed by Mango, whereas the Husband loved Straight Up.  Very refreshing when chilled.  The only downside is that Cocobella Coconut Water contains calories whereas Diet Coke doesn’t.
