5th Blog Birthday

It’s five years since I began blogging, an adventure I wouldn’t change in a heartbeat.

Every year I feel like I say something similar but blogging has been a great stepping stone for me, and I’m sure every other blogger will agree.

Its grew my confidence, offered me with career opportunities and even life long friends. To celebrate and say thank you to all my readers who have supported me over the last five years I’m giving away some beauty goodies. 

I do this every year so there’s no surprise I’m giving away all of this! I’ve got a range of makeup and skincare items that’ll be delivered in time for Christmas. It could be a treat for yourself or make a hamper for a loved one.

This bundle includes an Armani travel bag, Benefit Cosmetics samples, two Urban decay lipsticks, Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream, Kiss Lashes, Pixi Retinol Tonic and lots more.
