WIN: Celebrates 5 Years with £300 Giveaway

January 2015 see’s a spectacular occasion for – the Manchester based fashion, beauty and lifestyle blog turns 5 years old! Yes that’s right, almost 5 sweet years ago, I set up this blog from my bedroom and started to use it to record links to my freelance fashion journalism online. One day, I wrote a post about a cool new Converse collection just launched at Office. They found it, featured it on their Facebook account, and all of a sudden I had ‘real visitors’. Yes, like real blog readers!

That was 5 years ago, and since then, it’s been a whirlwind of award wins, events, brand contracts, fashion shows, London Fashion Week, guest blogging, social media extravaganza… the list goes on. I honestly can’t begin to say how thankful I am of the success the blog has achieved. It has been 5 years of juggling along with working in Fashion and Brand PR, and there have been times the blog has had to sit quietly for a few months (more recently during my adventure in Australia). So to celebrate the big ‘5’ – look at what I’m giving away!


Happy birthday to meeeeee! As a thank you for your continued support, readership and loyalty (although new readers are more than welcome to enter – it’s for all!) I have put together a £300 lifestyle set to celebrate becoming a well established lifestyle blog. Take a look at the gifts you can win:

Nutri Ninja Auto IQ 1000W Blender worth £150!
