Guys, I did it!
I managed to sail through another year of blogging with even more fabricated memories, fantastic opportunities and a regular disbelief that there’s people out there who still share a genuine interest in my content and take their time out to provide me with feedback and positivity that only spur me on to work my butt off. Tomorrow marks three years since I took the plunge and without sounding like an over cliche, soppy bugger – the inspiring and now personally paramount blogging community has without a doubt being the by product to my growth and yearning enthusiasm to keep developing.
I never thought I’d remain focused on one sector, I never thought an initial craving to jump on the bandwagon and begin this habitual hobby would turn into such an important place for me to leave my head space at. My blog is my longest standing achievement and to this day remains the only outlet that keeps me happy go lucky on my feet instead of the usual get me out of here I’m so bored approach – with a good year or so of tuning out the potential to blog with serious intentions, a careless view towards stats and followers, three indecisive name changes, shoddy designs and a whole load of terrible photographic learning curves, I think I’ve finally found my connected metier; my real sense of belonging and the style I enjoy portraying. Not only does the kindness of others allow me to strive but the challenge and the recognition in my own improvement keeps me on my toes and ready to reach the highest point!
As I obviously adore every single one of my readers and am constantly thankful for their support, I was determined to get together a fancy giveaway for this year’s blog anniversary. As much as I’d love to knock on everyone’s door and individually give them a big bear hug, that sort of conveys as slightly impossible and extremely time consuming – so instead I did what I do best and collected a number of beauty products for one lucky winner to lavish in. My Twitter poll asking for your opinion on what sort of giveaway to create almost finished identically at beauty/skincare/makeup goodies and a random bundle so I combined the two and made three. What better way to kick off the bank holiday weekend in full swing, ey?!
Everything pictured is what you’ll receive (along with a makeup brush set I’m still waiting on being delivered which I will photograph and re upload when it arrives). The prizes are as follows:
H&M Smoky Nudes Eye Palette (which I secretly wanted to keep for myself it’s that gorgeous)
NYX Matte Bronzer in Medium and Liquid Suede Lipstick in Cherry Skies (because of course I wanted to celebrate the Boots launch with a couple of products)
Live-Love London Blush & Light Palette
New CID i-groom Eyebrow Grooming Pencil & Comb
Essie Nail Polish in Sand Tropez (my all time favourite nude shade)
L’Oreal Infallible 24H Foundation in Vanilla
Environ Avst Body Pamper Pack (Environ is a bloody miracle worker I’m telling you)
The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Butter
Mario Badescu minis – Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion and AHA Botanical Body Soap
St Moriz Gradual Self Tanning Lotion
Soap & Glory mini favourites – Hand Food and The Scrub Of Your Life
(soon to be) Makeup Revolution Ultra Sculp & Blend Collection
and finally, the entire Marula Haircare Range from Paul Mitchell – Rare Oil Treatment, Intensive Hair Masque and both the Shampoo and Conditioner
Overall there’s worth a whopping £150+ worth of indulgent cosmetics you can get your mitts on!
Now, onto the boring part; the rules: the giveaway will be held through Rafflecopter and all you need to do is enter the mandatory options (and any more add ons of your choice) to ensure your entry. The giveaway is already live and ends in just over six weeks time when I return from my holiday abroad. Unfortunately, and as much as I’d love to include everybody, the giveaway is only open to UK and European international destinations due to ridiculous postage prices outside of the EU. The winner will be picked entirely from random and contacted straight away. Good luck and once again, thank you so so much for your input into my blogging journey. See you in the next fun-filled stage!
