I should be so lucky


Lucky, lucky, lucky! Sorry for getting that Kylie song stuck in your head, but my point is I was lucky! Not in love like the song says but with winning Lucy from Shiny Thoughts third bloggiversay giveaway! (I'm also lucky in love but that's a different matter!) I've been blogging on and off for years on different blogs and find it inspiring that people have been blogging consistently and at the same blog for years! She very kindly gave away two goodie bags, one sweets themed and the other a mixture between beauty products and jewellery which I luckily won, yay! Have you seen the Dune bag above? I'm actually in love with it and kept showing it to my mum and my boyfriend, who both thought I was mad but agreed it was nice. It now houses my make up and random little things that I usually cart between my house and my boyfriends (I swear I'll stop talking about him! lol) but I'll probably use it when I go out too. 


A little sneak peak at what's inside, I was so excited to open it, even though I already knew what I'd won, but still, yay excitement! I wish I'd taken a picture of the parcel it arrived in as it had pretty tape and stickers all over it! Ah hindsight eh?


I won some leopard print style nail wraps, which I am going to attempt to try using again since my nails are getting longer (and I know where I went wrong last time I used nail wraps). There were two lip glosses, both smelling lovely, one by Jemma Kidd and the other was Just Pink by Next. Both smelt lovely and looked nice, but my favourite was the Next one which also came with a sweet floral scent which is perfect for popping in my bag and you just dab it on. I also had a perfume by Next London which smells so nice! It's mainly floral but it says it has hints of citrus and musk too which I can pick up on after awhile. I'm really happy with that as my perfumes are all nearly running out and I only get them for Christmas which is months away! I also got a cute red nail varnish from Aubin & Wills which I haven't used yet, but need some more red shades as I can't find any of my current ones.


Now onto the jewellery, squee! All of the jewellery you could mix or match since they're all shades of gold. There were three bangles, my favourite being the Egyptian one! It's so unusual and I love Egyptian things. There was also a swallow necklace, and I'm crazy about swallow related clothes/jewellery as is most of the planet right now I think! ^_^ And there were four rings, I think you're meant to stack the three smaller ones, my favourite being the one on the right and it kinda reminds me of sailory type jewellery, like a wheel of a ship? Anyone? And the flower one is pretty, but I've only just started to wear rings so feel like I need to work my way up to wearing such a statement ring!

All in all, I am chuffed with what I won! Thanks Lucy! You should go check out her blog if you haven't before, it's full of pretty photographs and outfits! I never win anything so it was really nice to finally win something, plus something so nice! And this really makes me want to do my own giveaway. I've collected a few things for my own blogs first bloggiversary which is on the 1st of July. It won't be a big giveaway as I don't have much money atm, but I was wondering if anyone would like to see a sneak peak of what I've got?   It'll be just over a week until I post anyway but I sort of want to do it now, but should wait till my bloggiversary!

  4. Oh Lisa I'm so happy for you! My gosh, this really could not have gone to a better person could it! I'm so happy with how pleased you are! :D

    You're so, so kind to have done a post on it too, it's really interesting to see something that I once had in my house in someone else's hands!

    Good luck with the nail wraps, I thought they were quite fun, they're a bit fiddly but everyone liked them once they were on!

    Good luck with your own Bloggerversary giveaway but don't feel you have to spend lots of money! wait until the date and then POW show everyone why they should be celebrating with you ;)

    Good luck!! Lots of Love and happiness that you love it all (kisses to the bf too!)

    1. It's no problem, I was really happy to win and liked writing about it :D

      Yeah it must be weird seeing someone elses photos of them too, and I really liked the way you photographed them, I need to work on my lacking photography skills!

      Well I'm treating my nails better and painting/experimenting more so I should be using them really soon. They're so fun to use and I'm hoping they'll last longer than the last ones I used since I know how to use them now lol.

      Thanks again for everything, and yeah I've got a few things now I'll post it later, but it was fun buying things for it.

      And thanks for stopping by and commenting too! :D
