Competition Wins: Benefit and Cath Kidston

I thought that I'd do a quick post on a couple of things that I've won lately. Both came through the post this last week, which was a nice surprise.
The first was an umbrella from Benefit Cosmetics. It was a Twitter giveaway for their popular blusher, Hervana, (which I really want need to get!) being a year old. It didn't turn up after some weeks, so I sent a message to Benefit querying this, who quickly replied and dispatched me another one in under a week, which was great. I wanted a new umbrella, and this one is really pretty, with a proper, vintage-y curled handle, so I am a happy bunny right now!

 Above is a cheeky sneak peak at my new bedding. I'm waiting for my curtains to be made, and I'm thinking of getting a dresser or chest of drawers, then I will do a bedroom post ;)


Next, came my Cath Kidston oven mitt from the lovely Victoria of Victoria's Vintage. I was really happy when I opened this up, as the mitt came in one of my favourite prints, Trailing Floral. The giveaway was sponsored by the Lifestyle Boutique, whom I would love to start buying from. They wrapped the oven mitt up in their signature gift wrap, which was a nice touch. I haven't been able to try it out yet, but by the feel of the fabric, it is pretty heat resistant, which is a must.



Hopefully, these will be the first of many competition wins... fingers crossed!
