PAPERBACKS & POSTCARDS IS 2! SURPRISE BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY!

birthday

birthday2

It’s a very exciting day over at Paperbacks & Postcards Towers today as we’ve just turned two years old, it certainly doesn’t feel like it’s been two years – it has flown by so quickly. Since I started this blog in 2010 I’ve been lucky enough to meet lots of lovely people and to learn lots of new things about make-up and the beauty industry that I had no idea about previously. I’ve had the opportunity to go to exciting events and meet-ups and the one thing that I always bring home with me is the sense that the beauty community really is full of beautiful, lovely people and even if you don’t know anyone there’ll be someone that will chat to you anyway and show you the ropes.

I’d like to take the opportunity to say thank you to every single one of you, without you Paperbacks & Postcards would probably be non-existent now – I don’t have a good track record with sticking at things,  but it’s you that keeps me writing away, reading your comments and checking out your blogs and chatting away to you on Twitter is what it’s all about for me. I love writing but I love communicating more. Communicating with each and every one of you.

To celebrate my blog birthday we’re going to have a little (massive…) giveaway, but it’s going to be a surprise giveaway as you never get to know what you’re birthday presents are before you get them do you? Unless you’re Amy who knew where her mum used to hide them… You’re going to have to trust me and hope that the box of goodies will be something that you’ll enjoy, I’m going to include some of my favourite products so if you’re a long time reader you’ll probably have a pretty good idea of some of the prizes (Hello, MAC…).

The giveaway will be open internationally, and will run until October 19th (1 month from today). I’m going to use Rafflecopter as it just makes life easier for everyone! Be sure to check out the rules!

  14. Happy blog birthday! Congratulations on two years. I follow on GFC as "Toria", because my blogger went all weird and wouldn't let me follow any more blogs as Powdered Almond, so I follow some as "Toria". Hope that makes sense!

    1. Not yet, it ended on Wednesday and I'm still going through and moderating the entries to make sure that everyone has followed the rules and such - will have a post up when it has been drawn, and will email/tweet the winner.

      Keep your eyes peeled!
