100th Post Giveaway!

One of the things about Blog Your Socks Off September is that it's made me take stock of what's going on with my blog in terms of things like followers and page views. So I was taking a glance at my stats the other day, and I realised two things: that I've been writing this blog in various guises on and off since May 2007 (2007! I know! I could be a super-blogger by now if I'd stuck with it *shakes head*), and that this is my 100th post!

It's taken a looong time to get here, but got here I have (said in a Yoda voice), and I wanted to do something both to celebrate reaching that milestone and to give something back to the blogging community, which has been enormously helpful to me especially since I started getting seriously into it when I came back from travelling. So, with that in mind, I'd like to welcome you to my first ever giveaway :)

I have to admit it took me a long time to think of a good prize for this giveaway, mainly because I'm a bit cash-strapped but equally I wanted to make you guys got something good. But I think I've got something perfect - an OPI Nail Lacquer in I'm Not Really A Waitress. The reason I chose this is because I love my nail polish (as regular readers will know!) and this feels like a great fit for my blog as somewhere where I write about classic products that may have gone under the radar. Plus it's a fantastic polish that applies really well and lasts for ages. I love the colour too - it's a beautiful shimmery deep red that will go with loads of different things and is perfect for the coming autumn/winter. It'd be perfect to wear with a Christmas dress too!

Please enter using the form below. The giveaway closes at 23:59 on 30th September and I will announce the lucky winner in my birthday post on 2nd October.
