Xmas Giveaway – DAY 24

Xmas Giveaway – DAY 24

Yee Haa!! Xmas Eve has arrived and hopefully you’re all set to have a wonderful time with your family and friends over the Xmas holidays! I’m all set (well nearly…) with just a few more presents to wrap and some food to prepare.. and of course, I can’t finish for the Xmas holiday without opening that last little box in the Marks & Spencer Advent Calendar…

I’ve loved opening the box each day and will definitely run this again next December. Remember.. to be in with a chance of winning one of the 3 Gift Bundles (each containing 8 of the calendar gifts), you need to be a Follower of my blog AND Leave a Comment.. This is Last Chance Saloon!

So here’s straight to it:

What’s in the Last Box?



There’s definitely been a little bit of ‘magic’ in each of the other 23 boxes and today is a BIG POT OF MAGIC! I’m confident that the gift bundles will help create some beauty on the outside and of course, it’s important to remember that each of us has our own unique beauty within us too…

Be yourself and Be Beautiful.. Inside & Out!


I’ve actually got a pot of this already and it is FABULOUS! Have a read of the description below taken from the Marks & Spencer website. Nourishment for the Face, Body AND Hair to give you a wonderful glow for the New Year! You can also purchase this for around £29.00 and there is another version (which is the one I’ve got), which comes with a ‘glitter’ to give you a real ‘glow’!!,Beauty%20_

According to Marks & Spencer’s website: This nourishing oil for skin and hair is made up of 98.1% ingredients of natural origin and a unique combination of 30% precious plant oils and vitamin E to nourish, repair and soften your face, body and hair in a single step. Your face and body are left feeling soft and silky. Your hair supple, soft and shining with health.

I can’t wait now for the BIG DRAW which I’ll do on Xmas Day and I’ll post the winners on Boxing Day and hopefully get the prizes posted out in time for the start of a BRILLIANT 2017!

I wish you all a WONDERFUL Xmas and a VERY HAPPY New Year… and finally I’d just like to say THANK YOU to all the people who have supported my blog since I started it in March 2016 and I’m looking forward to continuing our ‘blogging friendship’ into 2017…

    Happy Christmas to you my beautiful friend. Here now it’s Boxing Day and I’m waking up in Macedon at the home of my in laws where we had a lovely day yesterday. It was so hot we all went swimming in the local lake in the afternoon. ? Hope you’ve had a happy, fun and beautiful day with your family Wendy. Big hugs xo

      Hi Miriam! Wow – sounds absolutely lovely.. it’s difficult to imagine being able to go swimming on Xmas Day – how fab! I’m so glad you had a lovely day.. xxx We had a fabulous day with lots of great food and family fun.. Our granddaughter was truly amazed at her new bedroom…. I’ll post some before and after photo’s on my blog soon as the transformation is amazing. Then last night we all moved on to my nieces house who just lives 5 mins away and had a BIG family get together with some great music, laughter and dancing. All in all a very magical and special day! Today I’m off to my mother-in-laws house which is about 50 miles away for more family fun! Have a lovely day today Miriam.. sent with a VERY BIG HUG xxx

        Hi Wendy, I’m so glad you had such a fabulous Christmas. It sounds wonderful. I was wondering how your granddaughter reacted to her new bedroom, look forward to checking out your photos when you get a chance. Enjoy your day today at your mother in laws place. I’m back home again now recuperating after two lovely days of great food, family fun and plenty of laughter. Now to put my feet up … Big hugs back xo

          Hi Miriam.. Yep – it seems that after a difficult year in many respects that the wind of change is blowing some positivity in our direction and I’ve got a great feeling for 2017 for us both! My relaxation day will have to wait until tomorrow as I head into more family fun time today! Get your feet up and enjoy some relaxation and ‘recovery’ time my lovely friend xx

          • December 26, 2016 / 10:56 am

            Thank you lovely lady, I sure hope you’re right. I need that wind of change to blow that positivity into my life. Here’s wishing it for both of us. Enjoy another day of fun with your family today while I sit back and watch the sky turn orange on a beautiful Melbourne night. xo

          • December 27, 2016 / 12:18 am

            I believe I am right Miriam… so there’s that first bit of positivity blowing over the water toward you!… I had a lovely day and now ready for bed… Zzzzzz. I hope you enjoyed a wonderful sunset and have a relaxing day today… Night night.. x
