I am really bad at being reflective so I won’t say much on that other than to say that my blog has changed as my life has changed and my life has likewise changed because of my blog and continues to do so. This little website has caused me a lot of stress at times but it’s largely been pleasurable. It has been a massive learning curve that has lead to some amazing experiences and introduced me to some fantastic friends. Overall it has kept me sane on what has been a strange two years.
When I started this blog I had been forced to move back to my parents and was unemployed – now I am still at my parents and working and I can honestly say that, without my blog, I don’t know where my mental health would be. Being a 27 year old and living at your parents in your old home-town that you tried to cut all ties to can be hard work, but coming home and knowing I have something creative to work on that I have complete ownership of has been a huge help. I often doubt myself on my blog and wonder if it’s worth it. I sometimes worry about the quality of my writing and if my blog even gets read. Most of all I am sure I am not good enough and that everyone else’s blog is better in one way or another. However two years on I have come to realise that I am proud of my little blog and there’s really no need to make any comparisons. So here I am, two years later, still typing away on what has become my longest running project! I want to thank all my followers (old and new) and anyone who has ever read my blog, left a comment, tweeted me or interacted with me in any way – you have all contributed to making a happy Kariss! Here’s to another two years!
As a thank you I have decided to celebrate with a good old fashioned beauty product giveaway worth over £90! Some of these products were bought by me for this giveaway, whilst others were duplicate gifts or unsuitable for me personally – may they better serve the lucky winner! So without further ado, here is what I am including in this huge giveaway:
Here are a couple of products from one of my new favorite all-natural make-up brands Dusty Girls. I am giving you a chance to get your hands on this gorgeous mineral blusher in ‘Pink Ladies’ and this really natural looking Gloss in ‘sun shower’. A perfect combination for a youthful natural look.
Of course, I couldn’t leave you without something for your nails – so to start off: here is a full set from the Fearne Cotton range at Boots. These six shades are suitable for all occasions, but I think they are particually appropriate for Autumn and Winter. You’ve got to love a bit of glitter! This set is no longer available in stores so this could be your last chance to grab them!
Lastly, a few real treats to finish off this amazing giveaway (even if I say so myself!). First this Makeup Revolution Salvation ‘Give them Nightmares’ Palette, a great mix of dark hues, perfect for Autumn and Winter. A Nashy ‘4 in 1’ blending sponge is included to perfect your makeup application. On top of all this – a Tangle Angel hair brush for grooming in stlye!
To enter just complete the three compulsary entry requirements in the Rafflecopter box below, after this there will be more options for further entries that you can complete if you wish. Please note this competition is open to UK residents only as unfortunatly I can’t afford to post it abroad as it is seriously heavy! I am not responsible for any loss or damage of products after posting.
