It’s official, I have been blogging for one whole year! It’s come around really fast and yet at the same time it feels like I have been doing it much longer! I admired other bloggers for so long while thinking it was something I could never do. Then one day I thought why not give it a try! I remember finishing my first post and being so proud I had actually managed to do it, being dyslexic I hadn’t really written anything since uni. Blogging has meant I write almost every day now, which has improved my writing style, and defiantly my speed. It used to take me a week to write even the shortest post, now I aim to write 3 a week and I still have an list of posts as long as my arm that I would love to do! I can only home that my writing keeps improving!
In the last couple of months I have attended two blog meets (which is a big deal for me as I am naturally shy) and I have had the chance to speak to some fantastic bloggers, both there and online. I have just bought a DSLR so hopefully my photography will be improving and I can’t wait to see where my blog goes in this next year! One thing I would like to improve is adding more personality into my posts. I have so many obsessions and geeky quirks and I’d really like to bring these out more and add my own stamp on the blogging world.
Technically my blog-a-versary was last month but I got so carried away with ideas for the giveaway that I pushed it back a little! So without further adu, here is what you can win!
It wouldn’t be my blog if I didn’t have a book related gift so I am giving away a copy of The Three (£14.99) by Sarah Lotz. It is a new thriller described as ‘Lost meets The Passage’. It is centred around the mysterious tragedies of four passenger planes crashing at the same time, at different points around the world, and the three child survivors. I am currently reading this myself and I am loving it (don’t worry, you will be getting a brand new copy), it is written in a documentary style which makes it a really interesting and fast paced read.
You may have noticed that I recently did a review of some of the product line from Botanicals Natural Organic Skincare and I have a full size bottle of the Mandarin and Chamomile Moisturiser (£17.95) to giveaway! You will see from my review that I loved it!
Another product I have reviewed and loved is the Blackhead Killer face mask pack (£14.95), perfect for getting rid of all those imperfections we are all prone to from time to time.
Next there is a wide range of products from W7 cosmetics! First this beautiful bright pink nail polish in the delicious sounding raspberry sorbet (£4.95) which you can combine with the Cosmic Nail Dust in Baby Pink (£3.95) for a really dazzling effect. Then it’s time to make those eyes shine with chunky eyes eye pencils in Cappuccino (£4.95) and Coffee (£4.95) as well as Style Eyes Lash and Brow Gel (£4.95) to really set it off. Lastly The Honey Queen Honeycomb Bronzer (£4.95) in it’s beautiful packaging to really give you a glow!
Now we move on to jewellery, with a pair of beautiful orange earrings ( £4.99, no longer on sale) from Lydia Rose, super cute handmade button earrings from Lymehouse Jewellery (£4.00) and lastly this stunning one off statement phenix necklace (£20.00) from Flaunt Jewellery.
There are also some false lashes from Eldora Lashes (around £4.95 per pair), there is one pair pictured but there are another couple in the post that will be added to the giveaway!
Lastly, also not pictured, we have a mini haul heading over from Primer Spa. It’s not pictured because their products are all made fresh! Included is Cashmere Caress Spa Soap Bar with Lavender (£6.00), Merino Caress Body and Facial Cream (£4.00), a Songbird Aromatherapy Lavender Potpourri bag (price unavailable) and Aromatherapy Tealight Sampler (price unavailable).
So there you are, hopefully there is something for everyone here! Want to know how to enter, just look below. Good Luck!
The goodies from Primer Spa shop and Eldora Lashes mentioned above have now arrived! If you win you will of course win these too! What do you think?
