Happy 3rd Birthday SColvinBeauty + MAC lipstick giveaway

3 years ago today I sat down to write my first blog post. After years of watching Youtube videos and reading many other blogs I decided to write my own, to start my own corner of the Internet and share my rambles and reviews with the world. 3 years later and starting a blog is one of the best things I’ve ever done, seriously. It sounds so over the top but through blogging I’ve made some great friends and had the opportunities to work with some great companies/brands. Blogging has opened my mind even more into the beauty community, and it’s incredible.

To say thank you to everyone thats supported my blog over the years I wanted to hold a giveaway. I’ve spent the last few days trying to think of what to actually include in the giveaway, and I’ve decided to have the main prize as a MAC lipstick of the winners choice. Now I know how cliche it sounds, it’s as if every blog includes a MAC lipstick in the giveaway, but for me thats one of the products that started my love of the beauty community. MAC Viva Glam Nicki was my first MAC lipstick, and I remember how great I felt owning one, so I wanted to give that opportunity to one of my readers. 

Giveaway rules:

    When I was a teenager( quite a while ago now) my friend and I used to be "Avon ladies" We must have only been about 13 or 14 because my mum had to sign and take responsibility for us. It was only a matter of putting brochures through doors and collecting again (hopefully with a nice big order) but they used to give lots of incentives for you to increase sales.. Gifts and free make up etc. We were quite good at it.
