The final step of celebrating our website’s makeover is to do the sort of giveaway that our Facebook fans requested. It’s a shopping spree! Enter our giveaway below, and you could be the lucky winner of $100 to spend on at alimapure.com. Wondering what you’d spend it on? We asked a few staffers what they would recommend, and their helpful suggestions follow. They will give you an idea of the different approaches you could take!
Break out the champagne, we did it. Or rather, you did it. You helped us reach 5,000 Facebook fans! We think this is a big deal, and to celebrate we’re having an Alima Pure product giveaway!
You may have noticed that we just started a new “Staff Favorites” feature on the blog and in the newsletter. Now it’s your turn to tell us your favorite product. If you’re one of our lucky winners, you will win it! So, what will it be? An adventurous product or color, like Robin’s favorite Garnet Luminous Shimmer Blush? Your foundation? A crazy, shimmery shadow that you’ve had your eye on? It’s all about getting what you love from Alima Pure.
Mother’s Day will be here before you know it. Celebrate by giving the special women in your life a bouquet of fresh spring colors, inspired by an old-fashioned garden. Sisters, dear friends, mothers and daughters will all love the on-trend pastels in our Vintage Bouquet collection!
Even better, three lucky readers will win the new collection plus a fantastic #39 brush with which to apply it! Simply tell us which Alima Pure eyeliner and/or lip balm shade you would choose to complete the look. (See complete rules below.)
Honeysuckle is a pale golden shimmer, perfect to highlight the brow.
Foxglove is a bright lilac shimmer, a beautiful choice for eyes of any hue.
Forget-Me-Not is a lively blue, sparked with gold; a sunny day in a jar.
Snapdragon is a medium shade of peach in a matte blush, ideal to bring a hint of warmth to any complexion.
The holidays are the perfect time to think about giving, and the New Year is the time when thoughts naturally turn to self-improvement. If you want a little inspiration to help kick-start you on both, I highly recommend reading Start Something That Matters by Blake Mycoskie, the creator and “Chief Shoe Giver” of TOMS shoes.
Mycoskie, who had no background in footwear or even retail, started TOMS as a way to help provide shoes for children in developing countries. Inspired by a trip to Argentina, he was able to donate 10,000 pairs of shoes to Argentine children within a year. With his “One for One” model, the company has become one of the fastest-growing footwear companies in the world, and is a for-profit company that has built giving into its DNA.
The book is filled with stories, not only about TOMS, but about other companies who are doing things “that matter.” Through their inspiring stories, you learn the importance of having your own story, facing your fears and being resourceful without resources. No one can deny that TOMS shoes has been successful, both as a for-profit company, and as one doing good in the world, so their story is one that many will be inspired to try to duplicate. The book offers a blueprint for channeling enthusiasm and limited resources to create something that can grow.
An inspirational and quick read, this book should be required reading for anyone wants to make a difference in the world. Would you like to win a copy of Start Something That Matters? Visit us on facebook and tell us your story of giving (whether done by you or for you). We will share some of the stories and our facebook fans will vote on which story is the most inspirational. The winner will receive their own copy of Start Something That Matters by Blake Mycoskie.
