2nd BLOG ANNIVERSARY GIVEAWAY sponsored by JoyByNature.com

This Giveaway is now CLOSED


News: Honest Reviews and Lifestyle tips blog is now reviewsandlifestyle.com. We have turned 2 today and it is GIVEAWAY TIME to celebrate this journey and wonderful companionship between you guys and this blog.

Thank you so very much all of you for your wishes on the Facebook Page. I share and learn as much from you all as you all share or look for answers from me. Also, a big THANK YOU to our giveaway sponsor JoyByNature.com.

JoyByNature.com, a name you guys have recently been hearing a lot on this blog, is an online store that sells natural and organic products. And the reason I and so many of you have started liking it so much is because they host such a HUGE variety of organic and natural products to indulge in, all under one roof. I am totally into personal care but for the first time a website has lured me with its amazing range of food stuff too :) Check it out guys. And there is a beauty section for men too with sensible products!

Organic grocery, organic makeup, hair care, skin care, kids care, organic clothes, health and wellness, supplements, home decoration and still more being added every week... what have they left?

    1. Dear Gurjeet, thanks for sharing and inviting your friends. I see you were among the first participants who shared and spread the word and appreciate that. Some of your friends may have joined on your invitation, however, I need your co-operation in verifying that.

      Apart from Facebook, I don't see many additional followers on email subscription or Google +. So again, if you know or if you can message me the names of the people who joined on your referral, I will be happy to verify for you and see if you qualify for this giveaway.

      Hope you read this comment and revert. Thanks again for participating.

    1. Dear Bidisha, thanks for completing the steps and for inviting your friends. As we had discussed in the Facebook message, I am sure there would be some people who may have joined the Facebook page on your referral. However, I need your support in finding those names and verifying.

      Apart from the Facebook page, I don't see many new joinees on email subscription or Google + so if you know who joined, or can give me their email ID, I will be happy to check for you.

      Some of your friends were initially facing the same difficulty as you but now they have qualified. You can ask your friends to write on the Facebook page that they were invited by you. There is a lot of time left and I am sure you can make it. Would love to see you be a part of this giveaway. All the best!
