Blog Birthday + Giveaway

Thursday, May 09, 2019
My blog is 7 today...how did that happen and where has the time gone! I started my blog while procrastinating from university essays back in 2012 and it's grown from there. I've been so lucky to have lots of amazing opportunities and collaborations come my way because of my blog, from working with brands such as Newlook, Harrods, Boots, Lush, Debenhams and more to being invited to the ladies day at Doncaster racecourse, going to the UK launch of Essence and receiving amazing products to review.

I never thought my blog would really amount to anything but a platform to review makeup on but thankfully it's grown to be so much more than that as it's allowed me to develop my writing and photography abilities, connect with lovely likeminded bloggers and feel as though I'm part of a fantastic community of passionate bloggers of all kinds which I'm unbelievably grateful for! So thank you to everyone who visits and reads my blog!
As a thank you, I wanted to host a blog birthday giveaway as I do every year and this year is no different but instead of mainly beauty prizes, I wanted to include a variety of items based on my likes such as makeup, stationery, Harry Potter and cute feminist t-shirts (I need more of these). Check out the full list below: 

- Pretty Little Thing Feminist T-Shirt (Medium)
- Fantastic Beasts T-Shirt (UK 10)
- Real Techniques Lip Brush Set
- Platform 9¾ Hardback Notebook
- Mystery Beauty Minis (x4)

The giveaway will run for the entire month and the winner will be announced on Twitter and via email on the 1st June. The giveaway is UK only (sorry!) due to shipping costs. To enter my giveaway, all you have to do is fill in the Rafflecopter for below. Good luck!


Have you entered my giveaway? Is there anything I should change about my blog or anything you want to see more of?

  30. There is nothing to improve on. I am not keen on book reviews, but just because I dont read a lot. I do love movies, so would love more reviews on films - doesnt have to be the latest releases, I like old movies, too, and would love reccommendations on golden oldies x
