Want To Win Treats From America?


Silly question because of course you do! I am off to America soon to buy all.of.the.things, and I thought that while I was at it, I would buy something for you too, lovely reader! As much as I would love to buy something for each and every one of you, I’m not a millionaire yet, so instead, one lucky reader is going to be treated to whatever product her/his (you never know) heart desires. If you would like to enter, all you need to do is leave a comment below and tell me what it is that you’re lusting after, and I will make it my mission to find it and bring it home for you. My only request is to please limit your lust to one item, up to the value of $40.Β Easy peasy, no?

The competition closes at midday on Monday 7 April 2014. I will announce the winner on Tuesday 8 April 2014, and the item will be sent to you on my return at the end of April. One entry per person. Open to South African residents only.

Good luck!

  • Zanne

    Bumble and bumble hair thickening spray or hair thickening mousse! Have a fabulous trip x

  • Alida Ryder

    How generous of you! I would absolutely LOVE one of those Hourglass Ambient light powders. After your post AND your glow tutorial I have been dreaming about them. No really, literally dreaming. I dreamt that I finished my face in them for a shoot and when I saw the photos I looked like Angelina Jolie. I mean, I know they won’t do THAT but still. When you start dreaming about products, you know it’s meant to be. I think either the “Dim Light” or the “Diffused Light” would be fantastic. *holding thumbs*

  • Fatima

    Omg I’m super jealous of you right now! But wow! This is so generous of you!
    I’d love to try the Maybelline Instant Age rewind concealer. I’m not sure of what shade (I use L’OrΓ©al true match foundation in N1, if that helps)

    So awesome! Hope I win

  • Jade

    Urban Decay Naked Palette! Would just die for one of those..

  • Tamarin

    I am trying to be more experimental with make-up and try new things so that I can find what works best for me. When Benefit left I felt a little left in the lurch, so instead of sticking to a single brand I’m playing around more. It would be great to try a NARS goodie or something (possibly cat-shaped) by Paul & Joe xx

  • Roshni

    Am new to your blog. With the 08 April being my birthday, I’m going to try my luck with a wish….wishing for an EDT to the value of $40, I’m not fussy, anything will do. Thank you!
