exciting news & 500 follower giveaway!!!

I AM SO EXCITED TO BE WRITING THIS POST!!! these past few weeks have been huge for me and for my little blog. i have reached some amazing milestones that honestly i never thought i would reach. the lily white english rose now has...

  • over 500 followers on GFC
  • over 400 followers on twitter
  • over 100 likes on pinterest
  • and nearly at 200 likes on facebook and nearly 100 on bloglovin'

not any one single thing on that list would have been at all possible without the amazing support of you lovely readers. its reading your sweet comments and emails that puts a huge smile on my face first thing in the morning because even though i know every blogger says it, its really true that i never would have thought people would want to read what i write. i started this blog as a way of documenting my adventures, my current favourite everything and to help me remember all the lovely little things that have happened along the way. its now how i meet amazing people, get to try new things and get to know about other amazing products, places and things to do. blogging has allowed me to meet some amazing ladies who i know that with just a quick email will help me out with any problems whether technical, design related or inspirational :D

so today i am taking what i think is a huge step and am starting to accept sponsorship for my blog. i have put this off until now as i wanted to get to a place where i knew exactly what my blog is. i am 100% comfortable saying now that my blog is my corner of the world for my ramblings, thoughts on my latest loves and somewhere to share the latest recipes i have tried and the books i have read. not very specific i know but its completely me :D

so as a HUGE thank you i am hosting a giveaway which includes a few of my latest beauty favourites and a 200x200 ad space on my blog!!! :D

i am giving away covergirl clump crusher mascara (i have this and am loving it, expect a review soon!),  wet n wild rose champagne shimmer palette (looks alot like a mac mineralise skin finish), jergens moisturisers, maybelline nail stickers, fresh sweet coconut and lime foot lotion, maybelline colour whispers (i so want to try these, they are top of my drugstore beauty wishlist), EOS blueberry lipbalm and not dent hair ties as well as the ad space :D

i hope you guys like my pics as i so wanted to keep some of then for myself, cough cough wet n wild shimmer palette, cough, maybelline color whispers, cough cough lol. this giveaway is open internationally so everyone can enter :D
