I’ve been meaning to do a lovely giveaway for while now, to celebrate reaching a mini-milestone of 200 followers on GFC on this blog.  But if you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that the realities of life (and death)  have been rearing their ugly heads, and the fact that I’m sitting here typing instead of quietly having a nervous breakdown is a little miracle in itself.

So, as I’m super-late in a massive 200-follower giveaway, I thought I’d do a few separate giveaways rather than one BIG one in the run-up to Christmas, to give more than one person a chance to win something 🙂  I’ve been doing a bit of shopping recently to get hold of some bits for you that I myself either already use or would love to have, so I hope you’ll like my little selection.

Don’t worry, the top photo shows my own brushes – the winner’s brushes are all waiting patiently in their packaging!

So my first giveaway is selection from one of my recent discoveries, the Real Techniques brushes.  I know they’ve been raved about non-stop in the blogging world for a while, and I’ll admit I was a little late to party, but better late than never, I always say … to which my father always used to say, “But better never late”….

You can read loads more about the brand on the Real Techniques website HERE, so I’ll just get on with the giveaway.

The Giveaway: Real Techniques Brushes worth just under £37!

I’ve picked out a great starter set, which will give you all you need to create a full face: The Travel Essentials Collection worth £20.99, which includes a full size Foundation Brush, Multi Task Brush, and a Domed Eyeshadow Brush and travel case.  I’m also giving away a Fine Eyeliner Brush worth £6.99 to create a beautifully defined eye and a Setting Brush worth £8.99 for detailed work.

The Travel Essentials Collection and Travel Case
To Enter: 

Make sure you follow the blog by clicking on the GFC Connect button in the left column or via Bloglovin’

Leave me a comment below to let me know that you’ve completed the above 3 steps, (letting me know if you’re following the blog on GFC or Bloglovin’) along with your contact email address so that I can let you know if you’ve won!  I’ll be choosing the winner at random using Random.Org.  ( I was going to use Rafflecopter, but I’m not sure I’ve got the hang of that yet!)

– Entries for this giveaway will close on Saturday, 24th November at midnight and I will choose the winner on Sunday 25th.

P.S. Blogs or Twitter accounts that have been set up expressly to enter competitions will be disqualified. These giveaways are to say thank you to my lovely followers, so entries from ‘cheats-ters’ would not be in the spirit of the thing!

Good luck and look out for the next giveaway, which is timed perfectly for pre-Christmas…. hint hint!

And so my winner is…… drum roll please…..
Cassie Naughton!!! 
Please get in touch to let me know where to send your prize
Hope you love them as much as I do 🙂
