700 followers giveaway

A few days ago I reached 700 followers on Bloglovin' which for me is absolutely amazing. The first post I ever wrote went up at the start of July this year, exactly 5 months ago, and since then it's been quite a journey. I've learned an awful lot during this time, but I still consider myself a newcomer to all of this and since the blog also continues to evolve your comments are so important to help steer me in the right direction. I'm so thankful for the wonderful comments you leave and the fantastic support you've given me and it just encourages me to keep on blogging. I want to celebrate this milestone with a winter themed giveaway of some lovely Bourjois products.
The theme for these items is Iconic Glam, and the box contains 4 full sized Bourjois product that you can create this Hollywood inspired beautiful winter look with: 

The giveaway will be open until Dec 18, and I'll announce the winner on the 19th, and by then I will also have notified the winner before. This giveaway is only open to the UK, but I will hold an international giveaway when I reach my next milestone. I can't express enough how much I appreciate everyone who reads, comments and tweets about Makeup By Candlelight, so I'll just say a simple THANK YOU, and good luck to those who enter the raffle!

  2. Wow. It's hard for me to believe, I remember following your blog when you had just started, and now you're at 700! You should do a post with advice haha because my blog has been going longer than that and I am only a tiny bit of the way to 700 ;)

    1. Thank you so much, that's really lovely of you and I do appreciate every single comment and support that I get from everyone! I'm definitely no expert but I think it is important to publish regularly - whatever that frequency is - once a week, once a day etc... and also to be active in the blogger community - comment on other blogs and not to be shy about promoting your own blog when it's appropriate. I hope that helps - have a super day :o)! Xx
