Blog Birthday/Valentines Giveaway!!!

I can't believe it's been a year already...
This blog was born on the 8th January 2011. I'm a bit late in celebrating but better late than never, right?
I originally began to write about things that inspired me beauty-wise in my life, and it really had been a long time coming. I began with a notebook full of memories waiting to be committed to Blogger and in jotting down these titbits of nostalgia I also found my way into the beauty present, joining the ranks of other beauty bloggers with reviews, beauty updates and a lot of 'nails of the day'....

I love writing about the present, but even more than that I love taking voyages back into the past where you can practically smell the wax in lipsticks and the talc in face powders. I hope that I can find more time to write about these treasures in 2012, along with continuing in the vein of current beauty trends and painting my nails all the colours of the rainbow.

I'd also really like to thank all of you who have taken the time to read my ramblings and who have supported and encouraged me. I didn't even know what it was to have 'followers' when I started, but now I know and I like it very much indeed. It gives me the impetus I need to continue and believe me when I say that every comment counts and that I love hearing what each and every one of you has to say.

So, now the fun bit.

By way of thanks I'm holding a small giveaway competition just in time for Valentine's Day.
One lucky reader will receive a Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm, perfect for puckering up to kiss your beau ...or just for the pleasure of having gorgeously soft, plump lips!

This lip balm has saved my lips and I absolutely cannot be without it. To read more see my post here.

Obviously your prize will be brand spanking new and not my manky old pot as pictured above!

So, to be in with a chance of winning this all you have to do is:

  1. Be a follower of this blog, via Google Friend Connect (GFC), Bloglovin', or email.
  2. Tell me how you follow in the comments section below and leave your name (GFC name if necessary) and, very importantly, an email address where I can contact you if you win.  
The competition closes at 12pm on Wednesday 8th February

I will contact the winner by email and I must hear from you by 12pm on Thursday 9th February or else I will have to select another winner. (This is all due to posting logistics... I will be in London from Thursday-Sunday and so will be sending your prize from there as I would like it to actually reach you rather than sit in the limbo of Belgian postal system...)

By the way, I will use to pick the winner so it will be completely, well, random. 

Good Luck!!!!!!
