Rethink What Matters With Bare Escentuals – Giveaway

Rethink What Matters is a campaign created by Bare Escentuals for women.  They’re inviting women nationwide to shake up their foundation and talk about topics that are more than just skin-deep – from going bare in public to discussing what really matters most.

On the site, you will find a quiz about different topics every week. The topic this week is called “Rethink What You’re Investing In.”   Ask yourself this – Do your assets need re-evaluating?

Some of the questions they ask are, what does your portfolio look like and what is your investment philosophy like and so on.  I have to be honest and tell you that I have no investments (well, besides my home) nor do I have a portfolio.   I know, it’s sad.  I guess it’s something I need to rethink 😉

On top of the quizzes they provide, they are also giving away free products when you enter your answers. Each week until March 26th, 500 women will receive bareMinerals goodies and are offering a chance to those who share the quiz with their friends, a trip of a lifetime to either Paris, Costa Rica, Turks & Caicos, Italy or Asia – you win, you choose!

As part of their Rethink what matters campaign, Bare Escentuals is giving 2 lucky readers a chance to win an all-natural lip gloss. Valued at $15.00. The winner gets a choice of  7 colors – Cassis (Golden Rose), Chiffon (Nude Sand), Cupcake (Rose Pink), Iced Coffee (Java Cream), Sugar Plum (Purple Plum), Sugar Cookie (Pink Peach), Wild Honey (Golden Peach)

  1. Like you I need to rethink my portfolio. After I pay my bills, there is little left to save. I have to figure something out. I have little savings and no retirement.

    One of the things that I must rethink everyday in my life is the reasoning of choosing my career path.

    I am twitter follower @nutmeg237 , I also subscribed. the one thing I must rethink is to be a better listener to my family….I think I am just too busy at times focusing at the task I am trying to acheive that I am not really listening ( not good) as communication is big.
