First Blogiversary and Giveaway

As I mentioned in my First Blog Birthday post, on September 9 I celebrated my first blogging birthday. In that time I had uploaded 208. I'm now up to 229 posts with 68 000+ views. YAY! These numbers all really excite me and, as I'm sure you can tell, I still absolutely love what I'm doing (probably more than when I first started, to be honest). 

Anyway, as a thank you to all my fantastic followers, likers and such on all my social media platforms, it's giveaway time! I know I JUST announced the winner of a giveaway but, well, I'm feeling generous. 

To celebrate my first blogging birthday I'm giveaway away a Rare Beauty Makeup Kit from Benefit Cosmetics.
"Be the fairest in the land with our enhanted makeup kit. Look into the magic mirror to reveal skin pure as snow, "rose red" lips & cheeks, an enchanting glow and lashes black as night. It's a fairy tale come true!"
- Benefit Cosmetics  
This kit is based on the Snow White and the Huntsman movie starring Kristen Stewart and, although neither the movie or the actress appeal to me, I liked the products in the kit, as well as the make up bag itself (so much so that I bought one for me too, actually).

The set contains the following - 
  • A full sized The POREfessional
  • A full sized BADgal Lash Mascara
  • 4mL sample of Benetint
  • 2.5mL High Beam
As I mentioned, this kit comes in a great make up bag.

As far as entering this giveaway goes, I'm trying something new with the help of Rafflecopter. It's different to what I normally do so please let me know which way you prefer.

This giveaway for will be open until 12.01am on Tuesday, October 9 and the winner will be announced within 48 hours after.

Good luck!

Always look your best,
Sophie

  7. Happy blogger birthday! Love all your posts and was nice to read the post Buy Pink and Be Breast Aware in 2012 in support of Breast Cancer, perhaps something similar for October being mental health awareness month and the importance for girls to look their best and care for themselves as your blog is so positive in this area.
