USA Goodies - I won my first giveaway!

I'm not making this post in any way to boast that I won a giveaway, but I just had to share the lovely prizes I won from the giveaway over on Rachael's blog Green Finch and Linnet Bird. I was so thrilled to win my first giveaway, and especially this one. How awesome is it that all these goodies are from America? I recieved a Peach Bellini scented candle from Bath and Bodyworks, a Wet and Wild Eyeshadow Trio in Sweet As Candy, an EOS Lipbalm in Summer Fruits, and a Maybelline New York Bouncy Blush in Pink Frosting.


Bath and Bodyworks Slatkin & Co Candle in Peach Bellini
I'm actually in love with the scent of this candle, it's beautiful. If I'm honest, I have sat for at least five minutes sniffing it. I'm not weird at all am I? I wouldn't actually label myself as a 'candle person' (whatever one of those is) but I may have been converted. I'm still yet to light this up, but when I do I'm sure it will make my bedroom smell absolutely divine.

Wet 'n' Wild Eyeshadow Trio in Sweet As Candy
For an inexperienced eyeshadow user like me, this is a great 'eyeshadow for dummies' kind of product. When I do take the plunge and wear eyeshadow, I always go for natural colour's so the shades in this trio are just perfect. I'll probably do a more in-depth review about this product (how often do I say that?). Unfortunately as far as I know this is only available in the US of A. But, if you find a link, do share!

EOS (Evolution of smooth) Lip Balm in Summer Fruit
I love this Lip Balm, it's totally unique to any I've seen before. People are always a bit surprised when I wack this out of my bag and start rubbing it on my lips, but I can't blame them, it is pretty weird looking! The shape is actually great for application though, and it's far more hygienic than dipping your finger into a pot (eww bacteria!). The packaging also claims that is it 100% natural, and 95% organic, what a bonus.



Maybelline New York Bouncy Blush in Pink Frosting
I was so thrilled to win this cream blush. I'm not lying when I say that a couple of weeks before winning the giveaway I was actually searching far and wide across the internet, well with the help of Google of course, to find somewhere I could buy this but with no luck. I just love the look of this product, the texture is so lovely as well. I'm going to do a more in depth review of this product in the near future.

Just a final massive thank you to Rachael for her generosity, you should all go and check out her lovely blog. I'm pretty sure she already knows how much I love this prize after the emails I sent her gushing over how excited I was, I was like a little girl at Christmas. Who doesn't love free stuff?
