Blog Party 2013 + GIVEAWAY

Hi! For those of you who are new my name is Kathryn (I go by Katy). I am a 19 (almost 20) year old college student, who has many interests. I am studying Bio-chemistry and hope to go into genetics. Some of my hobbies are making jewelry, cross stitching, random crafts, make up, hanging out with friends, reading, and of course blogging! I have many upcoming plans for my blog as well as some posts already written for the first week or two I'm back at school. My blog chronicles my life and random tidbits of it, and my favorite color is pink, this is how I came up with the name for my blog. I started blogging for something to do one summer when I was struggling with some medical problems, as something to bring some positivity to my day. 

For the blog party I decided I would do something which I have wanted to do for awhile...A GIVEAWAY!!! I am giving away pink themed items. A pink four strand bracelet with a snap clasp and a hot pink bottle of nail polish.

 A picture of just the bracelet. 

A picture of the bracelet and nail polish. The nail polish is Rimmel London Lasting Finish Pro in Posh Pink.

The rules for the giveaway are simple. 
1. Leave a comment on this post recommending one of your favorite books. (I'm always looking for a good book).

That's it! I would prefer to give this away to a follower of my blog but that is not a requirement. This is open to everyone world wide! This Giveaway will end on February 1st of 2013.

Please look around and enjoy! If you like what you see please follow! If I have enough followers there will be more giveaways in the future. 
Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Hi Pinkie! Biochemistry- WOW. You go girl.

    I love to read anything by John Irving and just finished Last Night in Twisted River.

    Great giveaway ~ Popped in from from the Grow Your Blog hop.

    Give me a visit some time ~

  9. Hello. Nice to meet you! You make some lovely jewellery. Well done!

    It's difficult to suggest books, not knowing what you like/don't like...but I love Patrick Gale's books (Especially "Notes from an Exhibition" and "Rough Music") and Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks crime novels. For historical novels try Phillippa Gregory's books, especially her Tudor series.

  10. As a retired Library assistant I could suggest many titles - but really it depends on the genre you prefer!:-p (I like crime mysteries, myself!)

    Good luck with your blog-hopping! ;-)
