1 Year Later (& Giveaway!) - *CLOSED*

365 days ago was the day I finally decided to make this little blog public, and published my very first post... but the truth is, it had been lingering in my mind for many months before that fateful day.

Let me take you back to my 21st birthday in September 2011 (above), when I'd already registered a Blogger account and was secretly scribbling away with ideas and thoughts about how to go about blogging. At long last, on the evening of the 28th May 2012, I just decided "to hell with it," and the next morning.... well, you know the rest.

So for those of you that have been here since day one, and those of you that have only found this blog recently, thanks for reading; I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.

So, to celebrate this one year milestone, I propose a little giveaway...

And the prize, you ask?

Only a bloomin' MAC lipstick in the colour of your choice*

To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is enter via the Rafflecopter below, where you will be asked to follow this blog on Bloglovin.

If you haven't heard of it, Bloglovin is a great way to keep up to date with all your favourite blogs in one place. It only takes a couple of minutes to sign up, so if you haven't already, go ahead and do it by clicking here, then make sure to come back and enter the giveaway!

You can also nab yourself some extra entries by liking the blog Facebook page, following on Twitter and/or Instagram and also by tweeting about this giveaway - giving you grand total of up to 5 entries. It's simple; the more you do, the greater your chances of winning... don't say I'm not generous, folks!

The competition will run for one month, and is open to UK residents only (sorry international readers).

I will contact the winner via the email address submitted to the Rafflecopter, and will also announce the lucky lady's name on the Bombay Rose Facebook page at the end of June.

Good luck!
