Yes, the promised givaway is almost here!
It is a thank you to you lovelies for following and commenting! I started this blog as a personal diary, but the fact people read and comment is such a nice surprise! THANK YOU!
The stash is going to be quite modest. There might be a few other additions, however I collected some prizes and then put some on one side to donate to Give and Makeup.
This is a wonderful idea. If you haven't come across it then go to http://www.giveandmakeup.com/ They collect unused (or lightly used) products to go to women's refuges. Most women (and children) in refuges flee thir home, taking little or no possessions. We all know how much we use moisturiser, shampoo, showergel... and what difference we feel when we put on a lipstick or lipgloss. Now imagine that everyday is full of fear..... that your self esteem is rock bottom. You literally have NOTHING, except the clothes you wear, and the child in your arms. Any money you do have will go on food. Having a little boost to your appearance or personal hygiene can really help us day to day- and most of us won't have had half the problems these women have faced.
If you are in the UK then please read and support them if you can. If you are in another country then I have heard of other schemes like this.
Come on guys- everyone's bathroom collects hotel shampoo, soap, gel, airplane socks, sewing kits, magazine sample sachets- why not donate these?
You'll free up some clutter and help someone in need.
