Make the Most Of The Last Few Days Of Summer || Summer Giveaway

Hello Lovelies,

I thought it was high time for a giveaway and what better than a summer giveway, (maybe a tad late as we seem to have had our few weeks of summer), but that aside it is still technically summer.
I thought as it was nearing that time of year when students go back to school and Uni, as well as the academic year beginning I know lots of people who are starting new jobs after finishing Uni, so I thought what better than a few little essentials for those both starting something afresh or who for those who just want a few new goodies in their life!

The first two are my absolute essentials I can't survive without antibacterial hand gel and Soap and Glory Gel (£2.50) is amazing it smells really girly and fruity and is nice and doesn't dry your hands out, like others do.  The second one is my favourite lip balm Burts Bees Beeswax Lip Balm (£3.69) I love the peppermint version, it is so yummy and soothing, definitely keeps my chapped lips at bay.   

The next two are my favourite nail varnishes, a glamorous red is a must, and all girls love a good pink.  The pink is Mavala in Honolulu (£4.50) and the red is Essie Russian Roulette (£7.99), it is a really glamorous colour. especially if you are a working girl (not in that sense, get your minds out of the gutter!)

The last part of the giveaway is my fave a gorgeous black pearl bracelet with a sterling silver Hamsa hand.  For those who aren't clued up on the old Hamsa (Khamsa) hand, they are an amulet that is popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa.  They have been commonly recognized as a sign of protection in many societies throughout history, however they also represents blessings, power and strength (everyone can do with that!)  After that mini history lesson, it is just a pretty snazzy bracelet that will jazz up any outfit, and something I pop on my wrist most days.     

This is my bracelet, yours is still neatly wrapped!

So if you would like a chance of winning these goodies, then subscribe to my blog via bloglovin' and leave me a comment on what your favourite part of the summer was, was it a summer trip/holiday or was it meeting up with your friends and having a BBQ?  

This little giveaway will end on Sat 7th of September, so you still have a couple of days to enter. X


  1. I've actually wrote a post on my favourite week of the holiday!

    :) x

  2. My favourite part of the summer was definitely going on a coach trip to visit Highclere Castle where Downton Abbey is filmed! This is a great giveaway - I have been wanting to try a Burt's Bees product for so long! :)

  3. Lovely products and the bracelet is gorgeous. My fave part of the summer was my holiday to Mallorca, the sea was so blue and clear- really miss it!

  4. That bracelet is so cute!
    This summer I spent a couple of weeks in France at our farmhouse with lots of friends, it was very chilled... lots of BBQs and beers in the sun - perfect! xx

  5. I've always waned to try the Burts Bees Beeswax Lip Balm!
    But my favourite part of my summer was coming home from university to see my family an friends that I haven't seen since Easter and also of course starting my blog!! I'm so excited and glad I chose the summer to do it woo

  6. My favourite part of summer was when I attended a festival near Putney. I love that bracelet it is sooo adorable! :)

  7. Oh I like the look of the Essie and Mavala nail polishes, I have a Mavala nail polish already and I think they're amazing!
    My favourite part of the Summer was being invited out to dinner with one of my oldest friends who I hadn't saw in sooooo long! For her to, half way through dinner, inform me that she is expecting a little baby, ahhh! Also during the summer I got my results in from college which informed me I am now a fully qualified beauty therapist, yay!

    Love, Natalie xx

  10. Umm my fav bit of summer was eating loads of yummy food

  11. My favourite part of the holiday was going to Cyprus, I used to live there and haven't been for 11 years, my grandad also lives there and it was amazing to see him for the first time in 5 years. Hope you had an amazing summer! Xxx

  12. The best of my summer was going to stay at a uni friend's house for a week with all my housemates and just spending lots of time together and going on day trips to the beach and musuems


  13. Just found your blog! Loving it! Can't wait for more. :-)

  14. My favourite part of my summer was when I went to Tuscany with my family. I've always wanted to visit that part of Italy and I couldn't actually believe when I was walking in the old streets of Florence. I even got the chance to visit the Salvatore Ferragamo shoe museum. Since he is my all time favourite shoe designer I loved to watch some of his earliest designs for stars like Audrey Hepburn. Another favourite part of mine was when we visited a small town called San Gimignano. Narrow streets, olive trees and pink flowers in the balconies. I'll treasure the memories of this trip forever and hopefully I'll go back there one day.

  15. Hi Sophie! Just found your blog through Louise from SprinkleofGlitter and there's no better welcome than a giveaway :)
    My favorite part of summer was a 2-week vacation to Turkey. I went with my boyfriend and his 2 sisters who each have 2 kids and one of the sister's husband. It was a blast! Sunshine, ocean, pool, buffet dinners and lunches - it was absolutely amazing! xx Michelle

  16. Hello! Ive have just come across your blog through Louise at SprinkleofGlitter! Love your blog! :)

    I love the idea of your giveaway, very appropriate for the time of year!
    Love your blog,
    Katie xx

  18. I actually haven't really got an ultimate favorite part of the summer. I finished school this year so if I'm honest I have just loved the whole no work to do and being able to relax in the garden with my friends. Oh and I loved getting my results on Thursday after being so nervous all summer I can finally relax yay. I love all these products and the bracelet so cute!

  19. My favorite part about this summer was that I got to
    take a trip with my two best friends. We had so much fun swimming, tubing, water skiing, watching movies, and catching up. The trip really made this summer special.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  20. Great giveaway!
    I've had the BEST summer as I got married! My now-husband and I eloped to Las Vegas then hired a car to drive through Death Valley and Yosemite to have a weeks honeymoon in San was perfect!

  21. Finally finishing my dissertation for my Masters, and getting stuck into new, post-qualified, projects - Huzzah! :)

  22. The favourite part of my summer was going on holiday with my boyfriend. We left on my 18th birthday and we went somewhere I used to go every year as a child - it was the perfect week!

  23. My favourite part of the summer has to be driving down to Birmingham, Weston Park to V Festival 2013 with one of my best friends! The weather was good and the music and atmosphere was amazing - especially Beyonce! It was an amazing experience from start to end, apart from the night of bad weather causing our tent to flood!!! I would definitely love to go every single year if I could... Amazing!

    By the way, I absolutely love your blog!

  24. My Favourite part was the sunshine! At last we had a decent amount of sunshine and can actually say we had summer, Hooray!!

    The Soap and Glory hand gel is divine, that alone smells just like summer :)
