Manchester Lifestyle Blogger Celebrates and says THANK YOU with a FABULOUS XMAS Giveaway!


As we enter the Xmas Season, as well as preparing to celebrate Christmas, I’m also celebrating having exceeded 700 followers on my blog – YEE HAA!

It’s time I shared back some of the ‘happiness’ you’ve given to me over the course of my journey.

As Xmas is the season of ‘giving’ and as a BIG Thank you, to those who have joined me on my learning ‘blogging’ journey over the last 8 months, I’ve got a great prize coming up for 3 lucky people to win on Xmas Day!

I recently purchased the Marks &Spencer Beauty Xmas Advent Calendar and although I feel a bit like ‘Scrooge’ and want to hold onto all the goodies as they do look brilliant and I’d love to try some of the items out, I’m battling the temptation and having seen ‘the ghost of Xmas past’, I’m ‘READY TO GIVE with GRATITUDE!!’ 


From the 1st December to the 24th December, I’ll open one of the ‘hidden treasures’ in my calendar and post an Advent photo of the ‘gift’ each day.

If you’re interested in ‘winning’ a share of these 24 lovely presents and you’re a follower of my blog, please leave me a comment for inclusion in the XMAS DAY PRIZE DRAW!

A NEW YEAR ‘Goody Bag’ will then be posted out to 3 lucky ‘winners’!

This is a Fabulous Advent Calendar (No affiliation, gift or payment received!) and the contents of the advent calendar are worth a staggering £250.00!!!

I apologise to any ‘male’ followers who don’t normally wear makeup… as the gifts are makeup and beauty related products.. However, for the ‘wrinkly males’ if your anything like my hubby (don’t tell him I said so), he does occasionally ‘borrow’ my moisturiser, so maybe there is still something men may find useful among the contents and if not, you could impress a lady in your life with a gift instead and earn yourself some ‘brownie points’!

I’m not sure what the situation is re: postage so I may also have to limit the ‘prize draw’ to UK followers.. I’ll keep you updated on this….

Please feel free to share this post as any new genuine followers will also be included in the prize draw…

I really do appreciate the support and encouragement I’ve received over the last year from my ‘blogging friends’ and I’m looking forward to continuing our journeys together in 2017….


1ST DECEMBER 2016 … Oooo Lovely … Beautiful Hands for 2017!

    Hi Wendy, what an awesome and very generous idea. Shame I don’t live in the UK but maybe I can meet you half way in that speedboat, haha. Congrats on 700 followers my dear friend. xo

      I decided I didn’t like the idea of sticking to UK so I’ve opened it up and sod the cost of postage! So I’m adding you in Miriam! x

        Aw really, that’s so sweet, thanks Wendy. I was happy to be on the sidelines but that’s awesome.

        • December 4, 2016 / 1:16 pm

          You’re welcome Miriam.. I’m glad you can be included! x

          • December 4, 2016 / 1:23 pm

            Me too! xo Hope you’re enjoying your Sunday Wendy. Mine is ending here!

          • December 4, 2016 / 1:24 pm

            Yes – about to do the cleaning that I didn’t do earlier in the week – haha… got to do it today to get the Xmas Tree up! Have a restful night! xx

          • December 4, 2016 / 1:27 pm

            Thanks Wendy. That’s what I’ll be doing tomorrow, before our tree goes up too! Happy cleaning, put on some nice happy boppy music and go for it! 🙂 xo

    Hi Wendy! Firstly, congrats on 700 followers for your blog. Yay!

    And I LOVE that you are giving away something meaningful to you in gratitude. That is a tremendous gift, and I’m touched. Count me in for the drawing. Thank you! And blessings your way.

      Thanks so much Debbie and THANKYOU for all the lovely comments and encouragement you’ve given me along my ‘learning journey’ which I really have appreciated! Much love, Wendy x

    A lovely way to give back to your followers. I’m in Australia, so that puts me out of the running, but I love the idea.

    • December 2, 2016 / 8:39 am

      Thanks Barbara.. I’m still looking into the postage so I’ll add you as a ‘possible’.. I do really appreciate the support you have given me along my ‘learning journey’ though so THANK YOU! xx

    I loved the look of the m&s one but have just got a standard chocolate advent calendar! Enjoy opening the goodies!

    • December 1, 2016 / 10:00 pm

      To be honest – I’d LOVE a chocolate one… I can’t have it though due to ‘diabetes’.. The M&S one is fab.. I’ve taken a sneaky peak and it’s got some lovely items… I’m going to be envious of the 3 winners of the Xmas Day draw (I wish I’d bought 2 now! haha)

    • December 1, 2016 / 10:02 pm

      ps Kim – I can’t seem to track back to you – do you have blog page so I can add you to the prize draw?

    • December 1, 2016 / 10:09 pm

      To be honest – I’d LOVE a chocolate one… I can’t have it though due to ‘diabetes’.. The M&S one is fab.. I’ve taken a sneaky peak and it’s got some lovely items…

    OMG, its December already?! I had been under house arrest with Bella for nearly 5 weeks ,and as a result, I haven’t seen not many Christmassy things. The advent calendar looks wonderful! I must make time to check it out at M&S very soon!?X

    • December 1, 2016 / 9:35 pm

      Thanks for commenting and I’ll add you to the ‘draw’ .. it is fab! x

    • December 1, 2016 / 9:38 pm

      ps – hope Bella’s doing ok and you’re able to get out and about very soon xx

    I am glad I visited Wendy! I saw this in M and S and it is a great advent calendar. Not sure if Irish are allowed but if so count me in for the draw!

    • December 1, 2016 / 3:37 pm

      Fantastic – of course you’re allowed.. I’ve had a ‘sneaky peak’ and there are some fab items in there.. I’m going to be slightly ‘envious’ of the 3 winners! I’m glad you popped across for this too! x

I love to read your comments... It's always great to start a conversation!
