NOW CLOSED! Christmas/Facebook 1000 Competition

CLOSED - winner to be announced on Wednesday 12/12/12!
I promised on Facebook that once I reached 1000 followers, I would have a competition so how perfect that it's happened just in time for Christmas! 

There are two prizes up for grabs. Firstly a Misha Barton handbag from Menarys, a local department store here in Northern Ireland. Menary's is the sort of shop that you could do all your Christmas shopping in. The Lisburn store is my nearest one and has concessions from (to name just a few), Oasis, A-Wear, Warehouse, Clarins and Benefit Make-Up and an amazing handbag range, including Fossil, Radley and of course Misha Barton…
This bag is just perfect for going out with the gold zip and chain detail. The zip goes right around the bag, allowing it to open up fully for easy lipstick finding. Lined in purple, it's got a Misha Barton badge on the back..
Retailing at just over £40, it would make a great Christmas present or you could simply treat yourself.
But that's not all, I'm also giving away three gorgeous Jamie at Home Amber Spiced candles courtesy of Anne Murray, my local Jamie at Home consultant extraordinaire. 
These candles are perfect for Christmas with their blend of clove-studded orange, cinnamon bark, warm cedar wood and vanilla sugar. Don't they sound gorgeous? They are available to buy on this link.
To be in with a chance of winning both of these lovely prizes in time for Christmas, here's what you need to do:


The competition closes at 10pm on Tuesday next, the 11th December and the winner will be chosen at random and announced on Wednesday. Open to all my followers worldwide so get entering now and if you share on Facebook and/or Tweet, you'll get an extra entry! 


Note : Thanks to Menarys and Anne Murray for supplying the prizes for this giveaway

  26. Our income gets ever increasingly squeezed due to the recession so we made a decision a few years ago that we would have one small present each to ensure that we could still afford a present each for our.parents, siblings and to ensure our children can have as much from their list as we can. On my list this year is a diary as it is hard to organise the family without one. Sarah, norfolk

  46. Top of my list would be my family and friends from the UK as we are having our first Aussie Christmas. Other than that I'd love a Jamie Oliver speed peeler as it got lost in the move or some new shoes. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas Avril with your family. Carrie

  47. Love your blogs Avril but unfortunately I can only dream of squeezing into the lovely clothes and footwear you recommend :(. Top of my Christmas list is for all fashion footwear companies to increase their top size by just one teeny weeny size for our ever increasing (height) ladies. Failing that, the handbag I need (not just want!) which has been relentlessly unsubtly waved under Himself's nose. OR the usual gorgeous Rituals gift set from said husband will be lovely (they wrap it nicely - his idea of the perfect gift!).
