Giveaway Collage

Wow, I am totally bowled over that A Spoonful of Style has reached 500 followers! A huge thank you to Angela from Read,Sugar who alerted me to this fact as I had totally missed it. To celebrate reaching this (for me at least!) landmark number, I have decided to do my very first giveaway.

Up for grabs is the lovely Charlotte Tilbury makeup bag printed with the fabulous lip prints of some of the most iconic women in fashion (a similar version featured in one of my first ‘Currently Coveting’ posts). All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I will pick a winner at random after the weekend.

I can’t say it often enough – thank you so much for reading my blog. 500 followers AND it’s Friday, my favourite day of the week!

Here’s to a great weekend ahead. X

Currently Coveting # 5

I’m a complete sucker for anything ‘limited edition’ or ‘exclusive’, and if it’s for a good cause then so much the better. This beauty bag designed by make-up maestro Charlotte Tilbury features lipstick kisses by, among others, Kate Moss, Sienna Miller and Stella McCartney. Sold exclusively at Selfridges, it’s a steal at ¬£15 and all profits go to the charity Kids Company which supports vulnerable children in London.

And, of course, while I was on the Selfridges website I couldn’t resist having a little click-around (although I did restrict myself to the beauty section). I’m a big fan of Laura Mercier’s make-up range and I’ve been using her tinted moisturiser for over 15 years now, while more recent additions to my beauty arsenal include the cream blusher, Secret Camouflage concealer and Caviar eyeliner. Her new Dark Spell Collection has just launched¬† (again, exclusively at Selfridges) and I love the limited edition nail polishes in Bewitched – a deep forest green with flecks of golden shimmer, which (dare I say it) will be spot on for autumn – and Forbidden, a silky silver taupe suitable for all occasions. The Spellbound face illuminator – a fine milled powder with a soft rose gold shimmer that is perfect for highlighting – also caught my eye and, after reading a few online reviews, I think it could easily become a ‘Can’t Live Without’ beauty staple.
