I feel like I've not been around much over the past few days - it's mainly since I've been really busy, rushing around the place, and not had a chance for any proper blogging. I even missed Strictly last night (I caught up this morning...). Anyway, there's no Sample Sunday today as I forgot. But I thought I'd do a post about what a lucky girl I've been recently. Over the past couple of weeks I've won not one, not even two, but three giveaways!!! I feel really lucky, and also slightly guilty about it! I might not enter any more for a few weeks in case my lucky streak continues - leave some booty for everyone else!
First up, I won a voucher for a complimentary eye lash corner flare application at a Shu Uemura counter from the lovely Jessica at Blogger Fae Glasgae. Jessica is a Scottish blogger who mixes make up and beauty with games reviews and art. You should go and check out her blog!
I was really pleased to win this, so I headed down to the Shu Uemura counter at Harvey Nichols yesterday hoping they would be able to fit in my application. Even though I turned up at lunchtime, without an appointment, a great sales assistant took the time to do my lashes. She decided that a corner flare wouldn't work with my eyes, so selected a pair of proper falsies - bonus! As I only had foundation and concealer on, she blended in my lashes with eyeliner for me - all for free. She didn't even try to flog me any products! This was a fab giveaway to win, as it included a free pair of Shu Uemura lashes, good for 15-20 applications apparently!
I know this looks a little odd without the rest of my makeup, but I was planning very dramatic Halloween makeup, so I thought I'd get my lashes done whilst I was in town to save me the hassle of doing them myself. I didn't want to walk around town in the middle of the day with full Halloween makeup on either, so I put it on later on top of the falsies. I will show you my Halloween look soon!
The second giveaway I won was from the fabulous Emma at Computergirl's Musings. This is another great blog, full of honest comment and reviews that I regularly read. This is definitely a blog to follow, so go and do so right now if you haven't!
Emma sent me some lovely bits including some Aussie hair products, a Mac nail polish in a fabulous colour, two lipglosses (one Jemma Kidd), an eyeliner pen and lots of other samples and booty! This was definitely a treat to receive and I'm really looking forward to using the goodies!
The third giveaway I won was a load of Dove goodies from fantastic Jo at Beautylicious Love. Jo is a very popular blogger, and one of the first I followed. She always writes interesting pieces from high end to drugstore, and from familiar brands to new and emerging products. If you've not seen her blog yet, where have you been?! Go and look at it immediately!
I received some really nice goodies - a Dove shampoo and conditioner, a firming cream, a hand cream and a pot of moisturising cream. All very gratefully welcomed onto my bathroom shelves!!!
Thanks to all three lovely ladies Jessica, Emma and Jo for your generosity! If there is one thing about blogging that I really love, that's what a generous community we are!
