I'm an auntie now! + giveaway

Hiya lovelies! Hope you all had a great weekend :)
I know, I won't ever manage to blog every day but that's alright I guess. I've spent the last three days in hospital with my sister who gave birth to my beautiful nephew on saturday so I didn't really care about blogging tbh. He's proper clever already, it's his birthday on the 11th, my brother's on the 13th and mine on the 15th, which means a week full of cake and champagne every year from now on, well done :)

As I still really like most topics of the blog every day in may challenge but aren't too keen on tomorrow's topic, I'll cover the past three topics tomorrow and leave you with a giveaway [and a picture of my nephew, I'm a proud auntie you see] to say thank you. I've hit 200 GFC followers a few weeks ago and couldn't be more grateful for your support and lovely comments. I've only been blogging for about seven months and I know there are plenty of gals who have 1000+ followers but to me, 200 means a lot. The time you take to read and comment is appreciated especially as I'm still thinking 'who would actually be interested in what I have to say about anything?' So ye, thank you lovely people! ♥ I'm not one to write soppy posts, in fact I'm glad everytime I manage to write a decent review but I'm so so glad to be a part of the lovely #bbloggers community!

so proud of my sister, he's beautiful!

The giveaway is open internationally and will go live at 12am tonight. Good luck to everyone who will enter  :)

  14. Congratulations on becoming an auntie! He's really a beauty.

    I like your blog and think your doing a great job. Personally, I really like to see eye make up tutorials such as how to do a 'cut crease' etc, which can be a tricky thing to blog about as they're pretty photo intensive, but I find them really informative and often easier to follow than a YouTube video. Lovely giveaway.
