Good morning chicas! That might have been a bit enthusiastic for a Monday morning, sorry – but I am enthused! This is because, to celebrate Stylingo officially being up and running for almost a month now, Lauren and I have decided to launch our first giveaway. We’re still very much in the early stages of blogging life (although it has already taken over our minds enough that we now justify all of our purchases with ‘well, at least we can blog about it’) but would like to say a huge thanks to any readers we currently have and anybody following and showing support on Twitter. It can be hard just starting out blogging, as you put so much effort and time into posts and then wonder whether anyone is reading, or if you’re the blogging equivalent of one of those people you see talking to themselves at the bus stop in town.
So, for our little giveaway we are offering:
Eylure False Lashes
We’ve long been fans of false eyelashes and know there aren’t many girls who don’t swear by these for a night out. Eylure are definitely our first choice when it comes to getting a new pair, so we’re giving away this gorgeous set. We’re HUGE lovers of Sex and the City, so chose lashes from this range to also celebrate the fact that the show was fifteen years old last week (where oh where would we be without it?) This is the ‘Carrie’-inspired pair; whether that means that you will wear them and automatically start being the most selfish member of your friendship group, spouting things in a witty tone that actually don’t make any sense, and cheat on a beautiful reliable man such as Aiden with an awful old geezer called Big I DO NOT KNOW. But. They are very pretty, right?
MUA nail varnishes
MUA is a big hit with the blogging community right now due to their extremely purse-friendly prices and pleasantly surprising good quality. We thought we’d throw in a few bits from this brand, starting with these two gorgeous nail polishes. They’re in shades ‘Bold Blue’ and ‘Moody Mink’ – they’re actually a bit lighter than these pictures show, and the blue in particular will be gorgeous for summer nails.
MUA Sheer Finish lipgloss
Originally I wanted to get some of those famous £1 lipsticks for the giveaway, but alas, they are so famous that the stock was seriously low at Superdrug. So instead I chose this bright and cheerful Sheer Finish lipgloss in the ‘Happy Days’ shade (one criticism for MUA – who on earth names the shades?).
As well as the lashes and makeup, we’ve also noticed that a lot of you bloggers are far too skinny, and we are jealous and want to sabotage you. So we’re also throwing in some chocolate, including a bar of the new Marvellous Creations from Cadburys (we have tried it and confirm its marvelousness).
We thought we would keep the giveaway nice and simple, and so to be in with a chance of winning all you need to do is follow us on Twitter – find us at @StylingoUK – and retweet the tweet about the giveaway (of which I’m sure there will be many over the coming days). The winner will be chosen by some random method that we haven’t decided on yet – probably write a list of everyone entered and get a snail to crawl across the page and stop on one – forever glamorous.
To make things SUPER easy, here is the tweet that can you retweet – remember you need to be following us too!
(We’re afraid that the giveaway will be only be open to UK residents, sorry international chums!)
