Giveaway Time!! CLOSED


It is time for the Giveaway! This is Beads, Braids, & Beyond's first Giveaway so this is very exciting. There will be more to come!

First, I would like to say thank you to everyone for following the blog, supporting the blog, and spreading the word about the blog. I think it is amazing how quickly the natural hair community comes together and supports one another.

Next, I have to say thank you to Denman!

These wonderful brushes are available in UK
through Boots nationwide and also on their website

They also sell a more stylish Denman, along with some cute fragranced Tutti Frutti Denmans! So check out their website.

As you can see, the Giveaway includes the Denman D3 Brush (love it!!!) a pack of (at least) 1000 pink beads, and two packs of barrettes!

The Giveaway is currently only available to those of you in the US/Canda.

In order to enter the Giveaway you MUST be a follower of this blog! That is the only requirement.

One entry: Simply leave a comment saying "I follow your blog" along with your first name. If you happen to notice someone else has the same name, leave a nickname or add an initial to the end of your name.

One entry: Become a Facebook friend/fan! (Look at the end of the right side column for the link) Make sure you let me know if you are a friend/fan!

One entry: Spread the word about the blog. Twitter it, Myspace it, Facebook it, post it on your blog, post it in a forum, You get the idea! Leave a comment saying you have done so and on what website.

Two entries: Add one of our buttons (to the right) to your facebook, myspace, blog, whatever! Leave a comment saying you have added the button and to what website.

One entry: If your child has ALREADY participated on Beads, Braids, & Beyond blog leave a comment telling me where they participated (ex. Diva Spotlight/Hair Share) along with their name. If your child has participated more than once (ex. Diva Spotlight AND Hair Share) make sure you let me know.

Two entries: If your child participated in the Style Challenge let me know! Make sure you tell me their name.

I will leave this open for a week or so. I plan on writing all of the names down, putting them in a hat/bowl and letting A draw the name out on camera.

Good luck everyone!

  14. Hi, it's Nicholle! i'm a page follower, FB follower, and have posted a link to your blog on my page as well as suggested your FB page to my friends.

    Just wanted to say how much I love your blog. I have 2 year old twins and have been practicing the cornrows. I'm not on your level yet, but your styles inspire me to do better.

    I have to say too, whoever wins the Denman is going to love it. I bought one a month ago, but used it for the first time on all 3 of us yesterday. LOVED it on my own hair and didn't have to hear 'Ow Mommy' when combing conditioner through their hair. HOpefully one of these days I can do a Spotlight with their hair...Not too confident in my skills yet though :)

  15. I follow your blog on a daily basis lol. Aryna has participated in the Diva spotlight (proud to say she was the first!!) and also in hair share with her mohawk. Im gonna go try and find you on facebook right now so I can add you! :)
