GIVEAWAY // Christmas / Thank You Giveaway

Now this post has been a long long long long LONG time coming, so I apologise it's not been up sooner! You may remember back in the summer I blogged my excitement about reaching 500 Bloglovin' followers yay thank you! I said I wanted to do a little giveaway to celebrate and then life got in the way and I never actually got my competition post up boooo!! However, I have always had it in my mind and have been picking up all sorts of bits and pieces to giveaway as my prize (which is why there is a pair of quite summery socks in the mix! They're still cute, even though it's now nearly Christmas so whatever, they're staying in!!) I'm now at nearly 800 Bloglovin' followers which I can't actually believe and thought I'd finally get my giveaway live now as a HUMUNGOUS THANK YOU to all you lovelies you follow my blog and have supported it through 2014. 

So what can you win?!

** Ted Baker 5th Avenue Make Up Bag
** Benefit Bad Gal Waterproof Eyeliner
** OPI Pure Lacquer Nail Wraps
** Primark Aztec False Nails
** NYC HD Color Quattro Eye Shadow palette in Gothic Harlem
** Burts Bees Lip Balm in Honey 
** Rimmel Apocalips in Nova
** Primark Hand Sanitiser Gel 
** Primark Watermelon Socks
** Superdrug Sugar & Spice Self-Heating face mask

Ted Baker make up bags are a beauty bloggers' staple - they're really well made and always have gorgeous designs. I love this Art Deco 5th Avenue style bag and the rose gold detailing is stunning. 

Benefit Bad Gal is another cult beauty range. This waterproof eyeliner will be perfect for a dramatic party-ready look.

To add even more power to your peepers  I also selected this NYC smoky black eye palette in Gothic Harlem.

I couldn't very well offer an emsypickle giveaway without including some nail items! I've really enjoyed playing with false nails this year and loved the design of these Primark baby blue Aztec nails. I'm also including some OPI nail wraps too. OPI nail products are always amazing quality and these jazzy zebra print wraps tick both the monochrome and embellished trends in one.

Hand sanitiser is a handbag essential for me at this time of year to ward off all those nasty bugs. I never get on the tube without one of these bad boys in my bag! This Primark one is strawberry scented too. Lovely!

Nude lips are so on trend right now and I've been loving my Rimmel Apolcalips in Nova so thought I'd buy one for you guys too.

Lip balms are a must at this time of year and I always carry about 3 around with me at any time! I've never tried any Burts Bees products but have heard such amazing things about their natural moisturising power. The winner will have to let me know how they get on with this one.

I wanted to add something really Autumnal to my prize and thought this Superdrug Sugar & Spice Self-Heating Mask sounded just the ticket.

As I said above, I saw these socks a good few weeks ago and thought they were really cute! I love the bright colours and although they're quite a summery print, you can never go wrong with watermelon socks!

All of these goodies were bought and chosen by me so I really hope you like them! My giveaway will run for one month, closing at midnight on 15th December (ready to be mailed just in time for Christmas yay!) and one winner will receive it all. It is open internationally and if you're under 16 please get permission from a parent or guardian as you'll need to supply me with your address so I can post it to you! All you have to do to enter is fill in the Rafflectopter below:
