First Birthday Giveaway

Kate Louise Blogs will be one year old on Sunday 22nd March. Now if that's not an excuse for a celebration, I don't know what is!

When I first started blogging I had absolutely no clue what I was doing. I still don't, really, but I have certainly learned a lot! In the past year I have been to a fancy event in London, met some really lovely fellow bloggers, worked hard at improving my writing and photography skills and, most importantly, received a much-needed boost to my self-confidence, all because of this blog. I can't imagine not doing it now!

But without all you lovely people reading this, none of that would have happened. I really do appreciate every visitor and every comment. Feeling that I'm creating something here that people actually enjoy means more to me than I can say, so I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all of you for reading this blog and for every lovely comment you have left over the past twelve months.

I've also decided to do a little giveaway to mark the occasion.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Gift Set

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Gift Set Eau de Toilette

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Gift Set Giveaway

I have a Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream gift set to give away to one lucky winner. It contains a 50 ml bottle of Daisy Dream eau de toilette as well as a shower gel and body lotion. This fragrance proved to be very popular in the blogosphere when it first came out and it's not hard to see why. Beautiful packaging aside, it's a light, fresh, floral scent that's perfect for Spring. (Just to be 100% clear, I bought the gift set with my own money. This is not a sponsored post.)

I'm going to keep this simple. For a chance to win the Daisy Dream Gift Set, here's what you have to do:

  1. Make sure you're following me on Bloglovin, Twitter and Instagram.
  2. Leave me a comment to let me know you're following and would like to be entered into the draw.
And that's it! I'll enter all your names into a random name picker and announce the winner in a new blog post on 17th April. I will also get in touch with the winner via Twitter.

Once again, thank you all for your lovely support. Here's to the next twelve months!
