1 Year Anniversary/Giveaway

Today is my blogs 1 year anniversary!
A year ago today I uploaded my first ever blog post, an introduction post called 'Hello Bonjour Hola' (you can check it out HERE!) I'm so happy with how this blog has been going so far. I make sure I put 100% effort into every post I do, so that I'm always happy with them! I can't believe I've actually managed to stick with this blog for a whole year. Anybody who knows me will tell you I am literally the biggest procrastinator in the world, and the fact that I've kept this blog going for a whole year is definitely an achievement. I'm trying to keep myself in a structured weekly schedule and I think for the past few weeks it's been working wonders! I've been so much more organized and have really enjoyed writing these blog posts. As someone who wants a career in writing, this blog has really helped me work on my writing skills and I hope I enjoy doing it for many years to come!

So, as a thank you for everyone that has been reading my blog this past year, I thought I would host a giveaway. I have never hosted a giveaway before and I'm kind of nervous to do so but.. hey ho, let's do it! 
The first thing I knew I was going to include in this giveaway was, of course, a book. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you'll know that books are a huge part of my life! So I picked out one of my current favourite books, The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon. I read this a couple months ago and it quickly became very high up in my list of favourite books! I haven't done a full review of this but I have spoken roughly about what happens in it in my Top 10 Books post which you can check out HERE, if you so wish!
The next thing I decided to give away is one of my every day go to make-up pieces, which is the Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder in the colour 003 Peach Glow. I honestly could not go a day without using this powder, it is a lifesaver!
Finally, I included two small eyeshadow palettes. These are the 'Bronze' and 'Nudes' eyeshadow palettes by technic. I chose these because they're quite small so they're perfect for going in your handbag and they include pretty much every basic eyeshadow colour you could ask for!

I did originally have a few things you needed to do to enter but I've decided to change that and just randomly pick a winner out of my followers. This is a thank you for reading and following my blog for a year so I'll pick a person randomly out of my followers (on Bloglovin', Google Friend Connect and Google+), and then get in contact with them letting them know they've won. If they don't want the prizes I'll just pick someone else and so on and so forth!

I'm also going to include some terms and conditions so there are no mixups!
There isn't an age limit on this but if you are under 18 and I've picked you as the winner you need to have permission from your parents to receive the prizes as I will be asking for your address to send the gifts to!
The giveaway will be open from when this is posted (25th August) until midnight on September 22nd, so a whole month from today. I will then pick a winner and announce that the giveaway is closed (I will also link the blog of the winner in a post if they don't mind me doing so!)

I hope this is a good enough thank you for enjoying and reading my blog. I don't normally ask this but I'd love it if you shared this with your friends/followers! Good luck to everyone!
