I'm back at last!!! I finally have my broadband sorted, and I'm SOOOOO thrilled to have reached the 50 follower mark, and I believe I'm actually now at over 60 followers, which is just unbelievable and unexpected! To celebrate this 'mini achievement' I wanted to do a little giveaway.

Blogging has been a fantastic thing for me to have stumbled across, and I'm so glad that I gave it a try. As a sufferer of CFS (or M.E), and being a mum to a bouncing baby girl and a bonkers 7 year old boy, means my life has changed drastically in the past few years. I have gone from business owner, and degree student with a great social life, to being quite often house-bound through exhaustion and pain. Blogging has turned out to be the perfect way for me to interact with the world, share my thoughts, passions and advice, keeping my mind stimulated without physically exerting myself.

Having the support of followers, as well as taking part in discussions on Twitter (I'm BeautyBabyBlog on Twitter if you want to find me!) has just been fabulous for my self confidence, my self belief and it has helped me find a little part of me that I had lost through being poorly, so this giveaway is a little celebration that I want to share with you lovelies!

So, what is up for grabs?!! 

I decided the most fitting prize would be some of my recent favourite beauty finds, so here is what you can win:
  • 2 'I Love Rimmel' Nail Polishes - Blue Azure and Disco Ball
There are such fabulous colours in this range, and I love a bit of sparkle so these two will create some great nail art looks with....
    • A set of Perfect 10 Nail Stickers (as featured in one of my NOTD posts)
    So easy to use....great for busy ladies like myself who just do not have time for complicated polish designs.
      • 50ml Soap & Glory Clean On Me Shower Cream 
      I absolutely adore Soap & Glory products, and this shower cream is so hydrating and smells divine - comforting and fresh, and so sudsy. I can't get enough of this range.
        • A Set of Eyeluscious 'Perfect Girl' False Lashes
        I love a good set of lashes, and these fluttery, feminine and feathery lashes are a great buy, and well worth a try if you want to brighten up your peepers, and finish off an evening make up look perfectly.

        AND I'm going to throw in a little surprise gift too, which the lucky winner will get to open for themselves. Everyone loves a surprise treat! to enter?!!!

        All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning these goodies, is be a follower of my blog via Google Friend Connect, and leave a comment below with your e-mail address!! 

        And......for an extra entry, tweet about my giveaway......just throw an @BeautyBabyBlog into your tweet so I know to give you an extra entry. So easy!
        The competition is open to everyone, even international readers, so GOOD LUCK to you all!!! The winner will be chosen at random on Monday 19th September, which is four weeks from today.  

        I can't wait to get back to writing some blog posts and catching up with what my fave bloggers are up to!! Check back soon! And again,  THANK YOU SO MUCH for following!

        Love Edie xx

        I've only found you recently but I resonate with using a blog to communicate which is why I started one, too! All my uni friends have moved back home and I'm super preggers so I don't get out much either lol.

        Congrats on all your followers :)
