A Thank You aka My First Ever Giveaway

Hello one and all and welcome to a very exciting post here at stonesgotstyle





So it is finally here, the day you've all been waiting for for, let's face it quiet a while now... my first ever giveaway! Now this giveaway was meant to launch the day that I reached 50 followers via Bloglovin as a huge thank you for all your guys awesome support (I seriously love you guys) however due to moving, job hunting and sub sequential lack of pennies I have unfortunately had to delay it some what (I am terribly sorry). I am now at a whopping 80 followers that's 20 away from 100 can you believe it! I am so thankful to every single one of you that takes the time and effort out of your day to read my blog, comment on my posts, send me tweets and like my Instagram pictures I wouldn't be where I am without you, so thank you from the bottom of my heart. I started this blog only a few months ago after many a year of dreaming about following in the foot steps of some of my blogging/Youtube idols. In those past few months I have spoken to some amazing people, met lots of new and amazing friends and I cannot believe how much my little blog has grown (eurgh someone pass the sick bag and call the soppiness police because someone is on overdrive). Now I think that is quiet enough sopiness from me for one chapter, let me tell you what it is exactly that I am giving away, aka what's in the box! ( it semi rhymed I couldn't resist).

Now before I list what is actually coming your way if you win let me explain my reasoning behind the prize. Basically I wanted to give you all a few of my favourite bargain beauty buys what with me being a bargain beauty buy obsessive. I think that it is always nice to be shown a few products that work amazingly but wont break the bank. Most of these products I own already and swear by, some I bought two of so we could be sisters from other misters and some I'm really blooming jealous of. So without further adu, let the prizes begin!
 

Freedom at Topshop necklace
Nail Art Pens
One Direction Chocolate Bar
Pink Teasing Brush
Hask Argan Oil
Glamour Eyes False Lashes
Nip+Fab Shine Fix 
Hello Kitty Lipstick in shade 'Koala Berry'
Primark Lipstick Pink
Primark Frilly Socks








Can I start by saying how stunning is this Topshop beauty, we all know I love a good chunky statement necklace and this stunner is no exception. I actually bought myself a similar style a few days before I purchased this as a prize which is light grey with three tiers and I must admit I much prefer this version with the peach tones and stunning stud/gem details (not jealous on the slightest) iThis and the stunning floral detail socks from Primark (can you believe it) which I also own (number one on the sister from another mister list)are possibly my two favourite items in the box. I absolutely love mine and have been wearing them with my new cut out boots non stop.  

 A few more of my favourites are my go to holy grail hair product aka the Argan Oil which I have repurchased over and over again and the simply adorable Hello Kitty Lipstick which has been one of my most worn shades throughout this month. Now I am going to be doing an entire post about my love of the Primark lipsticks soon so picked this lovely deep pink shade up for you (that again I also own)to hopefully introduce you to a lipstick that you will love. Now let me just say as I am sure someone is going to pick this out that yes, I did receive the Nip+Tuck Shine Fix in a Glossybox however technically as I do pay for my monthly box It has still technically cost me money and If you have read my post about that months box then you will know that this product is useless to me as my skin leans more to the dry side, so I thought why not give it to one of you guys who it might actually help instead of just hoarding it myself. 

All you need to do to enter guys is fill out the information you would like to on the Rafflecopter widget below and keep your little fingers and toesies crossed! (that's not a requirement I'm not suggesting you spend all week with your finger's crossed I'm pretty sure that would cause a pretty high amount of cramp).

So that is it , the giveaway finishes in one week, on the 9th and I will announce the winner on my Twitter and Instagram page as well as on this post so don't forget to check back and most of all good luck and thank you all so much for entering!
