THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!
When I got got back from the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M party, I had a thought consuming my mind...Are we such consumer beings by nature? Is is it a feeling we get because our society has bred us that way? Let me draw you the picture here. I am at the party, having fun, mingling, finally meeting in person some of my favorite bloggers. I am confident that the collection is not my cup of tea -too huge for my kind of taste. So, I do not wish to buy anything from it. Until...a fellow blogger comes and tells me that she is going for the candy-wrap clutch (you know the bag I am talking about! If not, check here). And within a matter of minutes, I see a seriously numbered group of girls jumping for that specific clutch! That was the moment I started thinking about the bag...and after such a "propaganda" going on before my eyes, I unintentionally started looking for it, but most importantly, I started wanting it. I didn't really got the bag, but that's not even important. This whole story made me think about consumerism and about how plasmatic our needs are. How strong is the effect of an advertisement or the effect of a significant proportion of people desiring to obtain a product? Have you ever thought about this? Similar thoughts rarely hit me, and when they do, they don't last. My empty wallet can verify that...! But is it just me that gets affected by all this? And should I feel guilty of wanting almost everything I see?
Hmm, I think I overwhelmed you and that wasn't my intention. To cheer you up, I wanted to give you something pretty, just to say thank you for your support (here and on Facebook)! I am hosting a mini-mini giveaway, where one lucky reader is going to win this pretty, and very trendy right now, necklace from H&M:
Believe me, it looks amazing with greys (I am picturing it with a grey hoodie) and whites!
In order to win it you should do the following:
✿ Follow Red Rose Cheeks on Google Friend Connect (here on the blog) and on Facebook.
✿ Like and share publicly this photo on Facebook.
✿ Leave me a comment here with your GFC and Facebook name.
So easy! You should do all three steps. The giveaway is open until Tuesday the 20th of November at noon, when I am announcing the winner, and this time it is also open worldwide :)
p.s. The collection may not have been one of my favorites, but the party really rocked! The best part was that I finally met in person bloggers whose blogs I have been following for a long time...Style Limelight, Lemoncake Wardrobe, Ordinary Pulse, Smells like fashion...Prettynyummie girls, it was very nice to meet you! Shopping Therapy and Mika's fashion and Countess Wilhelmina ladies, always a pleasure! And of course a "thank you" note to the hostesses, Anna Kotsareli and Mariza Petrakou!
