MY BLOGS 1ST BIRTHDAY + GIVEAWAY


I can't actually believe I've had my blog a whole year today. It seems like only yesterday I was reading countless blogs and decided it was something I could do. I'm so glad I finally took the plunge and started my own blog, i've had such a fun year discovering new beauty products and being able to share some of my favourites with you.

Since starting my blog i've had a pretty crazy but fun year, i've been to New York, which involved a serious makeup shop, a three week trip to Thailand, an experience of a lifetime, and headed back to university for my fourth and final year as a student. Whilst also getting some great blogging experiences such at attending the #BloggersFestival and meeting some fantastic girls, gaining lots of new followers on Bloglovin', Instagram and Twitter.

To celebrate my blog's first birthday, I've decided to hold a mini giveaway featuring the four new shades from Barry M's Spring16 Speedy Collection. I am planning a larger giveaway once I reach 1000 followers via Bloglovin' but I haven't quite reached that yet, you can follow me here. I recently bought two shades from the new collection for myself (Personal Best and Freestyle) and I really am obsessed with these shades, they are perfect for spring. I've decided to give away all 4 shades as they really are amazing and it also gives me a reason to complete my own collection. Barry M has been one of my all time favourite nail polish brands for years and they just seem to get better and better.


I have decided to run the giveaway through Rafflecopter as I think this is the best and fairest way and the winner can be selected at random. I have decided to run the giveaway for one month, until 8/3/16 so there is plenty of time for you all to enter.

With this being my first giveaway and the first time using Rafflecopter please let me know if you notice any technical glitches as I want this to run smoothly.

Giveaway rules
  • It is only open to people living in the UK unfortunately
  • Please don't enter from multiple accounts - make it fair
  • You have to be over 16 to enter
  • There is only one winner
  • Once the giveaway has ended the winner will be contacted through Twitter and then email
  • The winner will have 72 hours to respond before I pick a new one
  • The winner will be selected at random
  • The prize will be sent First Class Delivery once the winner has confirmed and supplied me with their address

  13. Happy blogiversary! I'd like to see more post/tutorial on how to clean your make up brushes/utensils, more haul posts and reviews of those products. In my opinion the font you use is quite thick/bold. I would consider changing it to something else. Thank you for the lovely giveaway :)
