Update | I Won A Giveaway Hip Hip Hooray

Hey Everyone!

Well I must confess that its been over a week since my last post- eek! I think that's the longest I've went since I started without posting! Undoubtedly, the highlight of the week was Tuesday when I got in from school and there was a brown parcel sitting on my bed. Now I'm not one to receive mail a lot, let alone a parcel full of goodies so as you can imagine I almost hit the roof with excitement.  You see I won a giveaway for the first time yayyy! 
It was held on MsMeatballhead124's  amazing Youtube channel (check it out people, she has a blog too and both are great- she's so lovely and easy to watch!). I got an email a couple of weeks ago to say I had won and I was doing treble back flips and all sorts of shiz :D After my skilful box opening (in case you haven't, take a look at my complete fail opening my ELF order here) this is what I found.
Each item was individually wrapped in orange tissue paper and I cannot explain the delight I had in unwrapping each.
So here is what I received:

Wooo I am so happy! How amazing is all this stuff? I love that because its from Canada, its brands you don't get here. The first item is a red lipgloss from Yves Rocher which I am glad to report is beautiful!! Then the eyeshadow is also Yves Rocher but I haven't tried it yet. I tried Yves Rocher a few years ago when I was in Germany and its kind of like The Body Shop. Then the nail polishes are by Finger Paints, a brand that I've not actually heard of but oh my goodness! I tried the pink immediately (what polish ban?) and it is definitely my favourite pink nail polish! It stays on for ages (yep, it stays on me, the constant nail biter!) and it the most bold colour. I haven't tried the coral yet but I think it'll be just as great. Then finally this lovely blue and gold bangle from Joe Fresh. I think this is so cute and is a lovely statement piece :)

I am so very thankful to MsMeatballhead (or Mel) and once again I would recommend you all to hop on over to her blog here and channel here

Aww all unwrapped :)
