Hi guys!! I’m so excited to be hosting my first ever giveaway. The start of August marked one year of blogging for me here at Hunida’s Blog. Throughout the year, I’ve gotten to know and like SO many different bloggers in this community – I’ve had fun sharing with and learning from you all and blogging wouldn’t be the same without you.

I’ve put together some things I want to give away to ONE lucky winner. All you have to do is answer this question in my comments (and be honest!):

  • What is your favorite and least favorite thing about my blog?

Also, at the end of your comment write “ENTER ME.”

  • The Descendants [starring George Clooney] on DVD
  • 3 rolls of washi tape by Twilight

3 Foil Packet Samples:

  • amika Velveteen Dream Smoothing Balm
  • Oribe Straight Away Smoothing Blowout Cream

I am so sorry that I can only make this open to USA RESIDENTS ONLY because shipping fees are outrageous. It does not mean I love you all any less. ❤

Like it says in the title, I am leaving the comments section open for entry until August 31st. Only one entry per person. I will notify the winner by replying to their comment on the first of September – the winner will then e-mail me at: hunidayn@outlook.com with their name and address. If the winner doesn’t respond to me by September 5th, I will pick a new winner.

How will I pick the winner? I am going to write your names on tiny scraps of paper and have boyfriend pick it out!

Good luck, my loves!!!

  1. My least favorite thing is everything. 🤣 JUST KIDDING I FREAKING LOVE YOUR BLOG & I look forward to reading even what some would consider “mundane” or “boring”. You’re also brutally honest which is so refreshing!!

    (But no really I can not think of a least favorite aspect of your blog!)

  2. Awww that sucks that I’m not eligible but its okay! My favorite thing about your blog is how you cover a wide variety of things and you aren’t afraid to talk about personal things and also those recipe reviews MMPH. HAHA. My least favorite would probably be THAT I DONT GET TO KNOW YOU IRL. Hahaha that’s not really blog related but I would love to hang out with someone like you! That’s it. And you’ve come so far for a year! 😊

  3. Oh my gooodness, this is SO Fun!!!! And DANG what great products!!!! Sheesh girl, you are generous! I love everything about your blog- but the most- I love your realness. I love that you are 100% genuine. It’s just rare these days and I appreciate that about you. And I have zero complaints. I will say sometimes I come by and update and reupdate your blog to see if you have a new journal entry out, and get sad when there isn’t lol. ENTER ME!

    1. Yay, thank you, Mack!! You are the sweetest. ❤ ❤ You've seriously given me the biggest smile ever!!! I'm sorry that I'm a slack sometimes! I feel I post TOO much so I thought no one would notice when I skip one or two – it really means loads that you actually have. I will do my journal entry tomorrow & I hope that will make up for the one I missed!! ❤

  4. I can’t participate, but I do want to mention my most favorite thing about you / your blog!
    You are one of the most honest bloggers and it’s obvious you put a lot of time into your posts! And they are so fun & funny to read! 😀

    1. Aww, I’m sorry that you aren’t eligible to participate. 😦 You are so sweet to answer my question anyways!! ❤ It means so much that you enjoy my posts – your posts are some of the most interesting & definitely the most clever on my Reader so I really appreciate it coming from you. ❤


  5. I’m gonna answer anyway because you should always give your girl some love. I love how honest you are & I think it is admirable and also brave to talk so openly about your job, people can be terribly judgemental and for you to not care what people think, talk about it anyway and with such openness and humour is amazing. Doing it for women everywhere my love ❤️

  6. I’ve only known your blog for around 3 months now, but wow, you’ve grown SO much in one year.I’m totally entering the giveaway!
    My favourite thing about your blog:
    Your honesty.
    It’s so courageous to have a career like yours, to put up a diary entry involving so much personal stuff, all out on the internet, and taking in all the criticism so positively.
    Your product reviews are just.so.honest.especially the one about the vegan food box you purchased.I’ve also noticed that you make sure to reply to as many people as you can, and don’t judge someone’s blog by the number of followers they have.I love that.

    My least favourite thing about your blog:
    I’d say, the aesthetics?The graphics, the pictures, and the visuals of your blog in general could be a lot better!It’s completely a personal opinion, though.

    That’s my entry!Lots of love.

  7. Congratulation on one year of blogging, and on your first giveaway! Keep up the good work!

    Also, I’d rather not be entered in the giveaway. Nothing personal, I’d just much rather see one of your long-term followers win it than me. It’s also best for everyone if I don’t use beauty products: the world would stop if I became any more beautiful.

  8. WOW, what an incredibly generous giveaway, Hunida! This is probably one of the biggest and highest quality giveaways I’ve ever seen. Obviously I’d love to win it, lol, but seriously anyone who gets it is going to get SUCH a treat! Those products look AMAZING.

    I’ve said it before, but what I love most about your blog is how genuine you are! I love that you aren’t afraid to talk about the things in life that really are perfectly normal but people seem to filter them out and never talk about them. I also love how creative you are with your topic posts! Honestly, it’s hard to come up with a least favorite thing, girl! Maybe that I’m jealous you get to eat out so much when I totally want to?! Or that you’re amazingly skinny and gorgeous? Lol, okay so that’s probably not a “least favorite,” but I can’t think of anything else. ❤ Love your blog! Please ENTER ME! 😉

    1. Aww! Yay! It makes me happy that you think this is a good giveaway. 😀 ❤ SO MUCH LUCK TO YOU, BABE!!

      1. It really is a great giveaway with really high quality products! Aw thanks, girl! That would be so fun, lol.
        Aww no I’m just sharing the truth!! Hahaha well you are gorgeous, girl! ❤ YES that would be so great!

  9. I’ve never won a giveaway. I have the worst luck with things like this, it seems. I do hope I win though because those hair products would really come in handy for me. As I mentioned before, I always have to use a lot of product on my hair because my hair sucks. lol I’ve never seen The Descendants, but I heard it was good.

    Here’s my entry:

    What is your favorite and least favorite thing about my blog?

    – My favorite thing is how I feel like I know you as a person, and it feels like we’re friends. You know how friends will get together and chat about what’s going on with them and what not? Well, that’s what it feels like when I read your blog. Plus, the food always makes my mouth water, and your job is so different from mine, so it’s interesting to read about. My favorite ‘series’ of posts is the Recipe Reviews! Such fun posts, and I love how unique the meals are that you try. (I couldn’t pick just one thing lol) I would say my least favorite is your quotes posts, only because I don’t do a lot of reading lately, so it doesn’t interest me as much as the movie review posts do.

    1. Aww!! So much luck to you on winning this one!! ❤

      I wish I could just send you all the hair products I get from these boxes from now on! If only shipping wasn't crazy expensive or we lived next to each other. 😦

      Thank you for your entry & honesty, Britney! ❤ I truly do consider you a friend now! & I love that you're able to read my blog & feel the same way about me!! ❤

  10. What I love most about your blog is the range and your honesty! You’re not afraid to be yourself and I feel like a lot bloggers hide behind a mask or a persona they’ve created for the Internet, which creates misleading perceptions. One thing I don’t like is you don’t have social media so we can’t be friend in real life, but I understand… Social media is totally overrated.

  12. Aw happy one year of blogging Hunida! I had no idea it had only been a year, you’re a natural it’s like you’ve been blogging forever! Obvs I can’t enter this competition because I’m in the UK but I’m going to say my favourite thing about your blog is your journal entries, book reviews and film reviews and I just love how honest you are, and how open you are. I genuinely always look forward to reading your posts! X

      1. You’re welcome. I guess it’s probably gone quick because you’ve enjoyed it so much but still, I can’t believe it’s only been a year! I’m coming up for three years! Aw it would have been great but I understand why you can’t have it open internationally! It’s still exciting though! x

        1. Oh really?! Have you always been on this platform and site for your blog?

          1. Yeah I’ve always used wordpress! Idk why I picked wordpress but I can’t imagine using anything else!
            Omg that would be amazing!
            I’ve still yet to do a giveaway! I keep meaning to but I just haven’t thought more about it! Maybe I’ll do one for my three years!

            1. I can’t imagine using anything other than WP either! If you do end up doing a giveaway, I’d be so excited to see what you come up with! 😀 It was hard to know if people would actually want the things I was giving away lol.

  13. My favorite thing about your blog is ALL of it!! 😍 Haha but seriously I adore your blog! My actual favorite posts are definitely the journal entries! I love lifestyle posts and it’s so fun to get to know you, plus I love that you don’t hold things back. You’re very honest and that’s such a great quality considering how some bloggers hold back on how they really feel. As for least favorite, nothing! 🤷🏻‍♀️ Enter me!😊

  14. Hunida! HEY GIRL HEYYY! 😘. Favorite thing the posts about your job, the unbelievably raw journal entries which touch my heart strings! Next Cali trip I want to have a meal with you and your man or when I’m in LV next. I’m with Britney on this as much that I love you read I somethings skip over your favorite quotes because it’s not my thing, I like glancing through the synopsis of the titles you’ve posted though! You’ve actually made me want to stop being lame and stop just posting and make a wordpress but I’m apprehensive I feel like I’ll be judged 🤦🏼‍♀️

    Enter me!! Please and thank you!

    1. Hey Allison. 🙂 Thank you for the kind words about my blog! So glad to hear that you enjoy it! ❤ I would absolutely love to go out & have a meal with you! Let me know when you're in LV next. That's totally fine w/ me that you skip over the quotes!!

      You should really start your own blog. 🙂 You'd love it & no one would judge you. The community on WP is so great. ❤


  15. No international shipping? LOL. I really like the honesty in your blog! I like how you just share things “without filter” and tell us almost everything. It’s very refreshing especially since you’re halfway around the world. 😀 I love your journal entries the most. I don’t comment much but I do read it! ❤ Happy Anniversary, Hunida! More blogging years to come 🙂
