Giveaway goodies | All Of Her Yesterdays

As you may have read in this post, I received a very exciting tweet last Saturday during my break at work - I had won a blog giveaway! Now, to most, this won't seem very exciting. For me, however, it really is. Let me explain, I'm quite honestly the most unlucky person ever when it comes to winning things. Remember when you were at primary (elementary) school and there were those end of term christmas parties with games like musical chairs, I never won. Playing things such as board games never turns out successfully for me either, I always lose! A few weeks ago my boyfriend and I were at his uncle's house and we were playing the card game Sh*thead (google it if you've never heard of it, otherwise known as Palace for those readers who are more well-spoken than me!) and I lost. I didn't just lose, it was as if I had been flying a plane, lost all engine power, tried to parachute out but the ropes had been cut & so I fell to a painful death in a volcano (seriously, how does my mind think of such strange similes?) So yeah, you get the point, I never win things.

The host of said giveaway was Lydia at All Of Her Yesterdays. I love her blog and recommend that you all go and check it out, her posts are wonderful! If I'm honest, I'd forgotten that I had entered her giveaway which then heightened my excitement when she contacted me! The 'prize' for the giveaway was a palette, two nail polishes and a lipstick. I was given the choice of colours for the polishes and lipstick but as I was at work I couldn't really access swatches or anything so I said that any colour would be fine for the nails and for the lipstick any shade that was either pink or nude as they are the colours that I tend to wear.

The package arrived Thursday morning (unfortunately I didn't get it until the evening as Mr. Postie was late & I had work & I've been so busy so couldn't get this post up sooner, boooo!) and was so cute. All wrapped up in pink polka dot paper with my name and everything, seriously, I'm a sucker for anything cute! Anyways, on with the pictures...

Thank you so much to Lydia for hosting the giveaway, it was so generous and the products are amazing!

If you'd like a more in-depth review of any of the products she sent me then let me know in the comments below & I'll add it to my posts list :)

P.S. sorry for the lack of photos of the lipstick, I've been so busy lately and just haven't been home in daylight to photograph it!!
