Gosh I am so inventive with my post titles, but I couldn't think of anything witty or snazzy so I just went for something basic. Now, I love entering giveaways as much as the next blogger, but I consider myself a very unlucky person which was why I was so amazed to discover I had won not one, but TWO giveaways! I waited until both deliveries had arrived so that I could blog about them together, so here goes.
The first giveaway I won was by Abbie at ohabbie. Her giveaway was very festival themed, and because I love festivals I decided to enter. I won a very colourful bracelet, an equally colourful peacock feather headband, and some dainty heart earrings. Even though festival season is over for this year, I'll definitely be wearing these things next year, and I like to wear the feather headband just for fun because it reminds me of summer.
The second giveaway was held by Molly at The Geeky Peacock where I won $50 store credit at FragranceNet who sell well known brands in makeup, perfume, skincare, haircare and aromatherapy. It took me a long time to chose what to buy but eventually I picked a smokey eye makeup palette by Lauren Luke, Bed Head Treat Me Right peppermint hair mask and Bed Head Ego Boost Split End Mender Leave-In Conditioner (what a mouthful!). I thought I'd treat my hair especially as the cold wintery air is arriving and I have noticed my hair getting dryer. I've also vowed not to get it cut at the hairdressers until it's long (they always cut off too much anyway) so it needs some extra TLC. In the parcel that arrived early in the morning I also received two little perfume samples and a free compact mirror, nice one!
The makeup also came with a super fruity lip gloss which I have been using daily. I've been needing some new makeup as my current makeup is getting a bit old and clumpy, the colours in this palette are nice and simple, and there's even a little message on the mirror saying "I just want you to feel special, Lauren :)" Well thank you Lauren, I do feel special now. This complete makeup palette for eyes, cheeks and lips has now become my new daily makeup set.
The Ego Boost split end mender is a bit of a lifesaver as I get terrible split ends and dry hair. This Ego Boost not only leaves my ends feeling silky and smooth, but it smells incredible and I'm pretty sure it's the same stuff hairdressers use once they've cut your hair, so it's nice to give my hair this little treat, and only a small amount is needed each time so the bottle will last ages.
The Treat Me Right peppermint hair mask is also something I've been needing for a while. I never have time for baths so I tried it out in the shower in the morning which was a great idea because the strong peppermint is perfect for waking me up. It felt very refreshing and I could feel the cool peppermint getting to work on my hair. I left it in for 5 minutes and could instantly feel the results, my hair felt very soft and lightweight and still smelt of peppermint! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quick way to revive their hair, or looking for a bath-time treat.
So those are the things I've won, be sure to check out Abbie and Molly's blogs and head over to FragranceNet for some great deals on well known brands. The only negative feedback I have is that even though this was an international giveaway, I still had to pay for shipping and VAT so bear that in mind when entering international giveaways.
Have you used these hair products before, or have I persuaded you to buy them?
