Sigma makeup brush international blog giveaway!

Hello boys and girls, and happy Passover for those celebrating it and happy Easter too!

Some of you may know I also have a (plus size) fashion blog in Hebrew, which you can read using Google Translate or other translation tools.

Well, I recently got one of Sigma's excellent flat top kabuki makeup brushes (F80) to review. The brush turned out to be an excellent alternative to the almost three time more expensive Mac kabuki brush. It's soft, dense and smooth and requires half the amount of liquid foundation my other foundation brush does.  An altogether thumbs up (and my Hebrew blog readers know I am not quick to pass a positive judgment on products I receive for review, not automatically anyway).

The company Also suggested I hold a giveaway where one of my readers will win one of these brushes, which they will ship free of charge no matter what country the winner lives in. So, for the first time on my fashion blog history (it just turned a year old last month) I am able to host an international blog giveaway and invite you, the readers of Puppeteer on the Roof to join, yay!

Wanna know how to join the giveaway? Head over to my fashion blog and follow the instructions and may the best reader win!

A lovely weekend in pictures

Last weekend was so lovely! I took many photographs to remember and share, and here are my favorites.

I started the weekend holding a used clothes sale on my rooftop with my friend and fellow fashion blogger Tamar. We sold cloths we no longer need as well as my puppets and handmade jewelery. It was tons of fun and we're holding another one tomorrow.

Saturday, my friends and I drove to the country for a Collage Sale with many wonderful handmade artists and small businesses who sell shabby chic items.

I also took many photographs around the village, since everything was in bloom and so beautiful. I wonder if I can live in a place like that without going out of my mind with boredom..

Later on that afternoon, I came back home and decided to work on the garden and plant the flowers and greens I bought the day before, after spending a miserable afternoon visiting my dad's grave. Nothing cheers me up like flowers do. They are my favorite thing in the world.

That's about it! Here's to a wonderful weekend for all of us. Passover starts in about 10 days, which means very long weekend and holidays for yours truly, yay!
