My First Giveaway

Hello, everyone!

Recently I've been very active in the blogging community, taking the time to visit fellow fashion, beauty and lifestyle blogs and appreciate the hard work that each author is putting into them.

I've noticed that bloggers running giveaways is a popular idea, in order to reward their readers for their loyalty and continued interest in their blog and hard work. THEREFORE, I have decided to host my first giveaway - for all my lovely readers! :)

I know I only have a small readership at the moment but the subscribers that I do have are incredibly loyal and I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH! I'm coming up to 5,000 hits and it still astounds me that people are taking the time out to come and have a look at my work - it's flattering and humbling. I dedicate this giveaway to you guys, and I hope that you continue to follow 'I Spy Trends' as blogging is my passion and, in all honesty, I'M LOVING IT.

The Goodies

Here's what you could win!


Cath Kidston Make-Up Bag
Barry M Colour Chameleon Nail Varnish
Secret Garden Co Double Stacked Gold Ring
Benefit Lipgloss Set
Topshop Gold Triangle Dangle Earrings
Retro 70's-Style Badges

Secret Garden Co were kind enough to donate this beautiful, fashion-forward gold ring for my first giveaway:


For those who don't know of them: Secret Garden Co is the exclusive lifestyle brand that specialises in statement fashion, jewellery and homeware pieces for women. You can read more about them in my interview with the founder, Nicki Silvanus, here. Secret Garden Co is available via Etsy. They have some lush pieces, so make sure that you check them out!

On a different note, two years after I first blogged about them and people are still going Cath Kidston crazy! How lush is this make-up bag?! I can't get enough of their cute floral prints - I love them!


I have also included this fabulous lipgloss set by Benefit - there are five different shades to suit whatever mood you're in and whatever look you're going for this season! A must-have!


How to Win

I'm running this giveaway through Rafflecopter, UK-only. Basically, how it works is that you follow the requirements on Rafflecopter below to earn entries. The top two requirements are: follow my blog and comment on this post with your email address and blog name. You can also do various other things, such as following myself and Secret Garden Co on social networks, to earn more entries.  And the more entries you have, the more chance you have of winning these gorgeous goodies!

Rafflecopter will then randomly choose the winner, who will be notified by email to ask for their address and then the goodies will be mailed to this lucky person!

The closing date is two weeks from now: Sunday 27th January. So get entering!

Good luck everyone! And thank you again for reading my blog!
