Hello everyone! Today I hit 1000 Bloglovin’ followers. As I hinted in my 100th post, I wanted to give something back to you guys for the next milestone. So here it is: The Bite Beauty Best Bite Remix Set. This set seems to be sold out everywhere, but I happened upon one in a quieter Sephora location and I thought it’d be perfect for a giveaway. Onto the gushing now.

These past few months have been pretty exciting for me. Seeing this blog go from being nothing to slowly becoming part of a community is an amazing feeling. Sometimes I don’t quite register it, but sometimes I look at my blog and think β€œmy God, look at the amount of people actually getting involved.” I particularly want to mention how much I appreciated the comments I received on my post about anxiety. They really proved just how amazing this community is. I was given nothing but support and kindness from everyone and it actually touched me (and I’m not that sappy or emotional of a person). So thank you guys! Thank you to everyone that has read my posts, commented on them and even gone so far at to write about my blog. Enjoy the giveaway, which timed quite nicely with the Christmas holidays might I add!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Extra info: This international giveaway is open until the end of December. I’ll contact the winner at the end of the giveaway and they’ll have 48 hours to accept the goodies. If I don’t hear back within 48 hours I’ll pick a secondary winner. Thanks again!

  • My favourite thing about Christmas is definitely the huge Christmas dinner with family and friends!

  • My favourite thing about Christmas is always the food and getting to spend more time with my family than any other time of year! The break is always great and revitalising too. I guess I can't pick just one. x


  • The best thing is the cosy and calm atmosphere on Christmas Eve when the lights on the Christmas tree are lit and Christmas carols are playing. That's just magical πŸ™‚

  • God I'd love to try these! x

  • Congratulations holly πŸ™‚ Great job with the blog! Here's to many more milestones! πŸ™‚

  • congratulations! This space you've created has become one of my favorites since I came across it, always a must-read – I'm so glad others feel the same way and hope your corner of the internetz keeps growing πŸ™‚
    My favorite thing about the holidays is that its completely normal to have a gigantic, gaudy tree right in your living room. I'm always so bummed to take it down and tempted to just, you know, casually have a tree in my house year round.

  • Congrats on the milestone, you are doing so well and your blog is amazing. I love spending time with my family, this year more so then any other years as I have been away from all my loved ones since the beginning of summer, so I am extremely excited to see them all again next week πŸ˜€ x

    Beauty with charm

  • Congrats on 1000!!! You should have way more cause your blog is so amazing


  • Oh my, many congratulations on 1k! That's amazing, you totally deserve it πŸ™‚ The best thing about Christmas for me, is probably getting together with all of my family, and eating delicious food!

    My favourite thing about Christmas is definitely the time with family, but also carols and REAL Christmas trees (they smell so good!)

  • Congratulations on 1K, what a great achievement! πŸ™‚

    I love wrapping up presents and giving them to people. I'm that person who always wants the receiver to open the present in front of me haha.

  • Ahhh, congrats! I've been following you for a while and you and your blog definitely deserve 1000 followers and way, way more. πŸ™‚

    The best thing about Christmas is definitely the escape from reality of work and school the little break we get provides. Christmas break is like a little bubble in which nothing bad happens and you're relaxed and you spend time with family and wear ridiculous sweaters. Plus, you get presents for just chilling around in your too thick socks.

  • Let me think… The best thing about christmas is the food and going to the pool in the night (here's too hot in christmas day)…
    Congrats! I love your blog.

  • The best thing about Christmas is all this time I get to lay aside to spend with my family πŸ™‚

  • I adore everything about Christmas! πŸ™‚ Watching Elf is one of the best things though!

  • Being home for Christmas is the best! Spending time with family and friends with nothing to worry about is just the best thing I could ask for. xx

    Congratulations on 1000 followers πŸ™‚

  • I love stay with my family. I always will praise God for it!

  • Best thing for me at Christmas is being able to fully relax and read a good book!

  • You're doing so well and like I've said before I love your blog ! πŸ™‚ Keep on going and you will achieve even more amazing things while doing something you love ! My favourite part of Christmas is preparing all the food together before the 24th ( In sweden we celebrate the evening of the 24th ) and then sitting down to enjoy the result of combined efforts! Apart from the gorgeous food I must say I love the feeling when we open presents and I get to see that faces of the people I love receiving something they weren't expecting- not necessarily something luxurious, but something that I have put a lot of time into and that they notice I have..

    Again, well done you for 1000 followers, you deserve 10.000 for the amount of work you're putting into this wonderful blog! Ps- congratulations for the MAC pro card πŸ˜‰

  • Congratulations on 1,000 followers! Your blog is incredible and you very much deserve it πŸ™‚ And thank you so much for the awesome giveaway!

    As for my favorite thing about Christmas, I have to say it's watching my family and friends open up presents. I usually try really hard to come up with thoughtful gifts for people, so seeing them happy is just amazing and definitely the best part of Christmas.

  • I love the homey feeling. Everyone is in a good mood, and it's all about spending time with friends and family.

  • the best thing about christmas is FAMILY xx

  • The best thing is getting to fly home and see my family. I live on the opposite side of the country to them and I don't get to visit often, so Christmas is the big family reunion for the year.

  • Spending time with family.

  • Congrats on such great success so far Holly! Thanks to your blog I have made so many great purchases, in particular The Body Shop's most amazing bronzer!
    I think my favourite part of Christmas is getting all the decorations out and spending tie as a family decorating. Also the food that comes out around Christmas is amazing, especially Hickory Farms foods, but that's a Canadian thing. πŸ™‚

    For me, the best part of Christmas is spending some time without telly, playing some board games with my family. We always end of bickering, but who cares, hehe πŸ™‚
