I've seen this tag a couple of times, and thought it was fitting for the first day of the new year.
So, I'll take a minute to look back on the last year of blogging.

Has blogging changed you?
Well, not really. Unless you count the fact that as soon as I get something now, I have to take pictures of it before I can touch it! Lol! I also spend a lot of time working on posts, pictures, etc, rather than playing around on pinterest or tumblr. I have learned a lot from other bloggers, and I've talked to a lot of amazing ladies since I've started blogging. I absolutely love the blogging community. For the most part, everyone has always been really sweet and helpful. I'm still shocked and so excited everytime I get a new follower. I hit my goal of 750 followers on December 30, but I lost one this morning. :(

How many posts did you write in 2012?
This is hard, because I'm gonna have to count, lol. 190. Geez. I had a lot to say! I'm hoping to post even more this year, as I'm going to TRY to post just about every day. I'm still taking suggestions for tutorials, reviews, a series, anything! If there is anything at all you'd like to see, let me know!

What post are you most proud of?
Probably my post about my hair extensions.  http://www.nikmakeupjunkie.com/2012/12/rebelle-hair-extensions-review.html  Not that it was my most popular post, but I think it's the most thorough review I've ever posted. The post with the most views was, of course, my MAC giveaway, followed by my Fall Inspirations post.

What do you hope your blog is like in 2013?
I'm hoping to be more consistent with posting. I'd love to gain more followers. I'd also love my posts to become more structured, as in, a certain type of post on certain days. I wish I could sit here all day, everyday, working on posts and writing, but I have a job, a husband and a family, not including my furry family. It's really hard to be consistent, but I'm going to try. Any suggestions are welcome!

I'd like to take a second and thank all of you for a great year. I love blogging so much, I wish it was my job. I love each and every comment that I receive, and I get so excited everytime I get a new follower. Blogging is so much fun, and I love sharing everything with you guys! Thank you so much for reading, sharing and commenting, and please continue to do so throughout the new year!

Okay, giveaway time!

This is going to work a little differently this time. 
I'm still going to use rafflecopter, but depending on the first winner, there may be two winners.
As I'm unsure of the shipping laws for all countries, if the person who wins is from outside of the U.S., they will receive everything but the nail polishes, and U.S. winner will be chosen for the nail polishes. If the first person chosen is from the U.S., you will receive the entire prize.
I hope that's not confusing. If it is, just tweet me @nikmakeupjunkie. :)

Here are the prizes!

 PH Matchmaker bronzer. Won from a Physician's formula giveaway, never used!
UD Single Eyeshadow in Midnight Cowgirl. Swatched 1x, purchased by me.
Nars single Eyeshadow in Night Star, swatched 1x, purchased by me.

 Urban Decay 24/7 Liner, travel size, in Ransom, never used. Received in Glam Bag.
be a Bombshell liquid liner, swatched 1x, never used. Received in Glam Bag.
Lancome Juicy Tubes, Never used. Purchased in a kit from Sephora.

Make sure you read the terms and conditions!



a Rafflecopter giveaway

Good luck!
