Birthday Giveaway!

Anoushka Probyn Fashion Blog Giveaway Birthday!

I’m going to refrain from quoting Taylor Swift here, but yay, I’m 22! I know I’m getting old because when I woke up on my birthday I opted to go back to sleep instead of opening my presents…

Anyway, to celebrate I’ve got a cheeky present for one of you lucky lot – a whole bundle of giveaway goodies! I’ve teamed up with a few of my favourite brands, many of whom you’ll have seen gracing the pages of this blog before, for a selection of gorgeous bits and bobs so good that I’m jealous I can’t win myself!

The giveaway includes:

Nica Handbag:

It’s no secret that I’m a big Nica fan since festivalling with them at Blackheath a couple of months back. Their bags are luxe and stylish without breaking the bank, plus the selection is amazing! In a bang-on-trend AW shade of Oxblood and roomy enough for all the essentials, this bag is my top pick for the coming months.

Urban Decay Naked Palettes:

Since getting my Urban Decay palettes I’ve been completely converted. I’m a Naked addict! One lucky gal (or guy!) will be getting Naked, Naked 3, aaaannd Smokey to fulfil all their sparkly eyeshadow needs. In return I’d appreciate any good smokey eye tips, because my ‘slap it all on at once and hope for the best’ technique isn’t always a winner..

Butterfly Twist Shoes:

The lucky winner will receive a voucher for a pair of Butterfly Twists shoes of their choice (the style shown is a prop only, but if you like them they’re the Lauren loafers)! I’ve had my pair for ages now and I love them. They’re rollable so you can keep them in your bag for when your heels get too painful, but honestly they’re so nice it seems a shame to keep em tucked away! Shoe sizes available are 3-8, and styles are subject to availability.

People Tree Bracelet:

I’m nearly always wearing something People Tree, because not only are they super stylish they’re also ethically conscious. When so much of todays fashion comes at so high a cost, it’s refreshing to have the opportunity to wear a brand that is offering an alternative. The winner will receive this gorgeous gold bracelet with pink mosaic triangle detailing.

Malin + Goetz Dark Rum Candle:

This Malin + Goetz candle smells SO GOOD. Seriously, I apologise in advance if it arrives half used, I’ve been so tempted so many times to go ahead and light it. Plus rum happens to be my tipple of choice (with coke, I’m not that hardcore), making it even more enticing. For those of you scent geeks out there, this one has top notes of bergamot and plum; middle notes of rum and leather; base notes of amber-patchouli, and vanilla. Sounds delicious, right?

To be in a chance for winning all this stuff (yep, it’s one big giveaway prize for one winner!) all you need to do is follow me on either bloglovin’, instagram or twitter, and comment below letting me know you’ve entered, what platform and your handle so I can track you down! Simple, huh? Only one comment entry is eligible by person, but for an extra entry look out for my Instagram post! The giveaway closes 15.12.2015. The winner will be picked at random, and no cash or alternative prizes will be offered. The prizes are non-transferable. Open to UK and EU residents only. Good luck!
