Gotta Love A Giveaway! **NOW CLOSED!**

**This Giveaway is closed**

I recently reached 100 followers and began buying pieces for a giveaway - since then I have obtained 36 more, so hello everyone! :)

Now I am finally getting this giveaway up!  I hope you like the items I picked - everything was bought and paid for by me.  So here's what you can win...

Sleek i-Divine Original Palette, China Glaze 'Lighthouse' Nail Polish, OPI 'Rosy Reflection' Nail Polish, Soap & Glory Girligo Moisturiser, Miners Sun Blushed Duo, necklace from my favourite jewellery shop.

This necklace is from my favourite local jewellery shop, Connie's Crafts. It sells beautiful, handmade jewellery and is my go-to shop when I need some new bling!  This necklace has black and clear stones with three large marbled stones.  It was the last one on display of this type, otherwise I'd have got one for myself too!

I thought this OPI Nail Polish 'Rosy Reflection' was gorgeous; a metallic, dusky pink colour.

I bought this China Glaze Nail Polish in 'Lighthouse' a few weeks ago (read the post here) and it's fab, so I got another one for the winner!

I have one of the Soap & Glory Girligo Spray-on Body Moisturising Mists and it's really lovely; a fresh, girly scent and not heavy or greasy on the skin.  A good size to take with you if you're travelling too.

I got the Sleek i-Divine Original Palette for the giveaway as I've heard so many good thing about it; I didn't have enough to buy one for myself otherwise I would have, so you guys had priority!!  This also means I can't show you the inside, as I don't want to open it! For a look at the eye shadows, click here.

I have been using the Miners Sun Blushed Duo for a while now and really like it as my everyday blusher.  I thought I would include one in this giveaway so that someone else has the chance to try it.

So those are the prizes that will all go to one lucky winner!
