Giveaway Win: Mixed Beauty Bits From Misellyre

If you follow me on Twitter you'll know that I recently won my first giveaway! It was from the lovely Ellie at Misellyre. Please please please check out her blog, it's absolutely fantastic and is just not getting the recognition it deserves at all! And do also check out the original giveaway post because it contains photos VASTLY superior to my own. They're also not all taken on a vivarium with bits of paper and spare change in the background. Clearly I need to get bigger pieces of white card. I also need to immediately say that I completely understand that some people do not like these posts. It's not my intention to show off or brag at all. I just really wanted to share my excitement and promote Ellie's wonderful blog and her generosity towards her followers. Honestly, I'll be reviewing everything in the weeks to come anyway, and I'd offer full disclosure and state that I didn't pay for this with my own money, so you'd know eventually! Of course, if this really bothers you, it won't hurt my feelings if you stop reading now.

So without further ado...

No Ellie, thank you! I love my prizes and I will definitely have a wonderful Christmas now.

 All the little bits and bobs came in these gorgeous Revlon make-up bags. I was actually shopping around for a new make-up bag, so this couldn't come at a more opportune moment! I love the classic monochrome styling and coral details, simple and beautiful.

 Here are all my lovely goodies! From bottom left clockwise: Blistex Moisture Max Lip Balm, Philosophy (OMG PHILOSOPHY! First ever Philosophy!) Crumb Berry Pie Body Souffle, The Jelly Bean Factory Snow Beans (my boyfriend thinks he's having these. Good luck sweetheart. You'll die trying,) StarGazer Feather False Eyelashes (I have never in my life worn false eye lashes. Time to jump in the deep end!) Nail Rock Nail Wraps (have no idea why they look bright red, they're actually a beautiful classic gold,) Nails Inc Colour Collection including Aldford Street (officially my first glitter polish) Royal Mews (a subtle holographic, YAY) and Belgrave Mews (forest green that shines gold, absolutely incredible, it's so up my alley,) MUA Immaculate Palette (I'm a recent convert and full on lover of MUA cosmetics, can't wait to sink my claws into these fantastic eyshadows) and finally Violent Lips in The Rainbow (have no idea when I'm going to wear this. Who wants to invite me to a fancy dress party or go to the next gay pride event with me?!)

The only thing not pictured here is the red Twistband because I'm currently wearing it. Swish!

Thank you again Ellie, I love my prizes! They came so much faster than I thought they would!

I'm hoping to post my own giveaway in the new year because I recently hit 100 followers on GFC! It's such a huge achievement to me and I'm absolutely honoured by the lovely comments I get from everyone. I won't give you any clues yet about the contents because I love surprises and I hope you do too!
