Thankful at 30 Birthday Giveaway [CLOSED]

Today, I celebrate my birthday, my 30th year of existence and I cannot be more thankful! Though I am not so much about an additional year on my age, I am excited to know what this and the next years have for me.
My life is nowhere near perfect. I had my own share of mistakes and became a disappointment of my family. I lost some important people in my life. I, technically, became older without my immediate family. Some of my dreams were taken away from me. I got into troubles, I faced a lot of problems. Though it was heartbreaking, I will never change a single thing that happened in my life. Those made me who I am today -- strong, resilient, independent, loving, and happy.

I have so much to be thankful for! I touch lives of kids and impart my knowledge to them through teaching. I help people manage their finances and prepare for their future through financial planning. I am just a few semesters away for my master's degree. I have a very supportive fiancee who loves the entirety of me dearly. There are people whom I know will forever be there for me. I have crazy friends. Everything. I am thankful of everything... every single thing. If there is one thing I learned in the 30 years of my life, getting affected by the negative vibes won't help you succeed. Stay focus on the positive and enjoy life!

This blog, MakeUpLove, has been one of the things I will forever be thankful for! I can no longer remember when, how and why it started by I am thankful that it did. It has brought me farther than I have expected. It has opened a lot of opportunities and has given me lot -- from events invitations and press kits to lifetime friendships with wonderful people. This humble space in the web I created years ago is continuously making my life interesting and beyond beautiful, literally and figuratively. MakeUpLove is not the top beauty blog in the web but it is in a place I never thought and imagined it would be. And that is because of you! Yes you, who checks in and reads my posts.
