Giveaway - My favourite things - NOW CLOSED

I was originally going to do a giveaway at 50 followers, but that came and went really quickly and I didn't have anything to give away. Then I was going to wait for 75 followers or 100 blog posts, but I'm just too excited. So here it is...

My first giveaway. And it's very exciting, for me at least. And I hope you all like the stuff that's up for grabs. The theme is My Favourite Things because this is my ideal giveaway and I want to keep all of this stuff for myself!

The Rules:
1. You must be a follower.

And that's it.
To be entered just leave a comment and be sure to include your google friend connect name and email address.

Hit the jump to see what's up for grabs and how you can earn easy extra entries.

Extra Entries
  • Anyone who was following me before the giveaway is posted will automatically get 1 extra entry on entering the giveaway.
  • For 1 extra entry, let me know what British chocolate/sweets/candy you would like to try (if you're an international entrant). For people from the UK, just let me know your favourite.
  • For 2 extra entries, add me to your blog roll.
  • For 2 extra entries, post this giveaway anywhere on your blog with this picture.
  • For 3 extra entries, mention this giveaway in a blog post, using this picture (4 entries if the post is entirely dedicated to my giveaway)
Let me know which ones you do and leave a link for me to verify.

The Goodies


Glittering Purple - See it stamped here
Mosaic Plum - I had a colour very similar to this one but it broke :(
Metallic Fuschia - Not really metallic, but a nice colour, see it here
Lilac Bliss -  See it stamped in Ice Ice Baby

Sally Hansen

Vital Violet
Sacred Scarlet
Wholesome Earth


LA Colours - Berry Red
Revlon ColourStay -  450 Always Romantic (see it here)
Miss Sporty - 120 (No name, but it's a light, sparkly lavender)
MUA - Shade 9
Carla di Roma - Bright Green

Star Eyes - 2 Pairs of false eyelashes. Modelled below by yours truly.

I love false eyelashes and wear them everyday if I have the time and patience to put them on. These ones are good for every day wear as they don't look too heavy. 

Plus, whichever sweets the winner requests and some of my favourites too.

The giveaway is International.
It closes at midnight on July 31st.
The winner will be chosen using
Good luck.



  1. Hey!
    Great giveaway! :)

    I don't know any British chocolate/sweets/candy, but I would be very happy if I could try it! :)

    Have a nice day!

  4. Congrats on your first giveaway! How exciting! ( :

    Priscilla (priscillasdf)

    I started following you before this giveaway. I love your blog by the way. :D

    I dedicated a blog post to your giveaway and I added your giveaway to my sidebar. Check it out here:

    I am not too familiar with British sweets. The only thing I have tried is Dairy Milk, if that counts. Haha. I am willing to try out whatever is fruity and chewy though! ( :
    If I get chosen, maybe you could choose something for me? Since this is your favorite things giveaway anyway. :P

  5. Oooooh those eyelashes look fab on should do some make up looks :)

    How long does 1 pair of lashes last you when you use them everyday?


  6. Marina - Thanks but I'm not very good at make-up. I wear the standard eyeliner and lasehes all the time.
    They can last up to 5 or 6 uses. As long as I remove all the glue and put them away safely.


  7. I follow your blog!!

  8. Great giveaway, thanks! I'm a follower, you're on my blogroll, and I posted your giveaway in my sidebar!

    I lived in London for a year so I am completely familiar with (and missing!) UK candy....Winegums, Lion bars, Cadbury Flake, Crunchie...I could go on and on! Luckily, the grocer here has a few choices in the "international" section--it's not the same though. And I miss digestives...with chocolate! (can you tell I'm hungry?) :)

  9. Love your blog.
