Did you have a good weekend? It’s a new month and a new season so happy spring! Feel free to let Mother Nature know it is supposed to get warmer not colder 😉
I have teased enough about this giveaway so it’s finally time! Its my birthday this week and I have been collecting a few of my favourite things so that I can spoil one of you. Imagine my surprise when in the last few weeks I also passed 50 000 views and 500 ‘likes’ on Facebook. Now if that isn’t a reason to celebrate then I don’t know! I also want to take the opportunity to say ‘Thank You!” to every single one of you. For reading, for commenting, for the kindness, support and putting up with my type of crazy. Without you I would be talking to myself all day long. You are all awesome and I appreciate you very very much.
I’m all about fun so this is going to be a fun giveaway. I really hope you will play along so please read the instructions and ‘rules’ very carefully.
If you follow me on Instagram you would’ve seen the amazing gift I got from NailCandi. Let me show you.
Isn’t that gorgeous? I am so blown away. It is so sparkly and blingy and beautiful. I may or may not have stopped wearing it since I got it 😉 Thank you so much NailCandi! Nailcandi also has a spring sale on starting today (1 – 3 September) so go check it out!
That’s not all though, NailCandi has also been kind enough to spoil you. They kindly included a few awesome goodies for the giveaway that I will show you in a bit.
Like I mentioned, I have been collecting some of my favourite goodies and I am also passing along something of mine. Want to see what’s up for grabs? Let’s start with the gorgeous NailCandi goodies.
NailCandi kindly gave 2 packs of cuticle tattoos AND 3 sets of nail jewels. (More info with links will be in the list below)
I have also decided to pass on my Essence stamping plates. They are NOT new and have been used but only a few times. I never use them anymore and would much rather pass them on to someone who would use them. There is absolutely nothing wrong with them, I just use my sets more. (Winner: If you would prefer not to have them I will leave them out). There are 9 plates and here they are.
I know I am really dragging this out aren’t I? Here is the whole shebang…

These are a few of my favourite things. I might add a few things when I send it off (and who knows, maybe someone else wants to sponsor a prize 😉 )
Do you want to win this? Like I said, I want to have some fun sooooo I’m doing something a little different. Please follow the steps carefully. Also check out the rules below before you enter 😉
To enter, you need to find the secret password / phrase. Hidden in the blog posts between 16 June 2014 and 20 June 2014 (4 blog posts) there are 4 words that will look different to the rest. These 4 words will give you a 4 word phrase that you need to enter. Enter the correct phrase and your entries will be valid. Use the wrong phrase and all your entries will be disqualified. There will be 1 word per blog post. These 4 words might not look the same but they will be different to all the other words in the blog post (Don’t worry, it will be obvious). So basically, 4 blog posts, 4 words, 1 word per post. This will give you the phrase.
This is the ONLY compulsory entry. I will include additional ways to get more entries by following me on various platforms as well as NailCandi. (If you only want to follow one, please do NailCandi. They were so kind to give so many beautiful goodies)
Now for the rules
- Giveaway is only open to South African residents. I will post this to any SA address. If you are international and willing to pay the difference let me know. I will delete international entries unless arrangement has been made.
- If your phrase is incorrect all your entries will be invalid. The only way you can get it wrong is if you didn’t go to the posts to look or don’t understand what I mean. If that is so, let me know so I can walk you through it 🙂
- Winner will be emailed and will have 48 hours to claim their prize. If prize is not claimed, a new winner will be chosen.
- Fake profiles, people ‘unfollowing’ after giveaways, cheating, this will all result in your entries being disqualified. I want to treat someone who will love the prize and thank people who read my blog. I will only have fair entries.
- Giveaway will end midnight, 14 September and winner will be notified within 12 hours.
That’s it. What do you think? I really hope you like the little prize I have put together. Just for the sake of clarity. All items (except for NailCandi) was purchased by me and is brand new – unless otherwise stated (stamping plates). NailCandi has kindly sponsored the manicure jewels and cuticle tattoos. This hamper is worth over R1000.
What are you waiting for? Go enter!!
