It's my blog's 1st Birthday! (and Giveaway!)

It's my blog's first birthday today! I can't quite believe I've been blogging a whole year - and I've loved every minute of it.  A huge thank you to everyone who follows me, I really do appreciate it!  And thanks to Sarah for the gorgeous cupcake photo.  You can see the amazing cakes Sarah makes here.





My very first post was about an Estee Lauder Giveaway at Harvey Nics!  I do love a freebie - as you will know! And.... there is a Estee Lauder GWP at Harvey Nics again this September - starting on the 27th of this month!  

As a thank you to my followers I'm doing a blog's birthday giveaway.  All you need to do is follow me by any of these means GFC, Hello Cotton or Twitter. The birthday giveaway is open worldwide.  Let me know which gift you like to win and and leave your email address.  (If you are under 18 please get your parent's permission).  If you Tweet about my giveaway or do a blog post this will earn you extra entries (but you don't have to).

The giveaway will run until 30 September and I will pick the winners using random.org.

Onto the goodies!  There are four giveaway gifts.

A beautiful Forget Me Not Ring in Sterling Silver hand made to your exact size by Haldis at Little Largo Jewellery.  Isn't it gorgeous!



Haldis has very kindly donated this beautiful friendship bracelet to my giveaway.  Handmade so each sterling silver heart is different on an adjustable black cord with sliding knot.  You can see Haldis's website here and follow her on Twitter @LittleLargo_



Etat Pur Micellar Cleansing Water 190ml and Express Purifying Mask 50ml



Bodhi Ylang Ylang Incensa Duo - Bath & Shower Therapy 50ml and Sensual Body Moisturiser 40ml.  You can read my review of these lovely products here.
