Happy 1st Birthday Ellis Tuesday: US Giveaway


US Giveaway
It's hard for me to believe but my very first blog post went live exactly one year ago today (link here). In that year I've had so many unbelievable opportunities, met such lovely people and had an amazing time writing each and every one of my blog posts. And I just really wanted to thank everyone who has taken the time to read my blog, clicked the follow button and interacted with me on here and on social media. Hence why I've decided to do a little giveaway to celebrate the special occasion and here it is. All of the prizes were purchased by myself when I was on holiday in Florida this October and are products that instantly caught my eye when I was there. I really hope that these are the kinds of products that do the same for you, especially as they are all US exclusive products. 

So here are the prizes included in my first blogging birthday giveaway:


Victoria's Secret Total Attraction 
This is the brand new VS Fantasies fragrance which was just released in October. It has wonderful notes of Cherry Orchid and Lily Blossom and is the full sized VS Fantasies bottle.

Sephora Spring In Soho Eye, Lip & Cheek Palette
You get eight eyeshadows, five lipglosses, a blush and two miniature make-up brushes from Sephora all wrapped up in a travel-friendly mother of pearl-esque case.

eos Coconut Milk Visibly Soft Lip Balm Sphere
Anyone wanting to try the eos line of lip balms will be seriously impressed with the brand new Coconut Milk offering.

Bath and Body Works Dazzling Diamond PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel
It's the one US exclusive product that I always wish I had more of and not only is this one fragranced with citrus and berries but it's also glittery!

Jolly Rancher Crunch 'N Chews
And who doesn't love US sweet treats?!


a Rafflecopter giveaway
Now onto the rules:

The giveaway is open to UK residents only. (I will be planning more international giveaways in the New Year.)
There are three mandatory entries: you must be following me on Bloglovin' (link here)on twitter (link here) and leave a comment below letting me know what your favourite post of mine has been this year.
Additional entries can be gained by following me on instagram (link here) and tweeting about the giveaway.
The giveaway will run for exactly one month, so it will end on Monday 5th of January at midnight.
The winner will be picked at random by rafflecopter. The winner will then have 48 hours to send me over their details or I will pick another winner. The prize will then be issued by myself.


A huge thanks again to everyone who has made my first year of blogging so incredibly special and the best of luck to everyone who enters. Here's to many more years of Ellis Tuesday!
