It was announced last week that I won this year's Look Mag blogging competition and Lara at Look Magazine informed me of the prizes I was receiving. I know she has worked really hard to arrange the best winner's prize package and I am going to blog about them the best that I can throughout the next few weeks. I don't want to bore you with "show and tell" product posts, so I've photograph them in interesting ways (most likely to be in form of an outfit post). I also want to show how appreciative I am to the brands who have been so generous by blogging about the prizes they sent me. It's only right that I put in 110% effort in to blogging about them as a way of saying thank you.

Here's the first of the "prizes" blog post; River Island sent me a gorgeous blue lace bodycon dress. I love it! This is the sort of thing I would buy, I love these sort of dresses and I actually wear these during the day with a blazer or cardigan, really thick black tights and a pair of flat ballet pumps. A little bit like this outfit. Of course, this dress is also perfect for nights out. In the photos above, I have teamed it up with some black wedges that I purchased from New Look a few days ago. All the jewellery (apart from the Cherry Ring which is an old one I made for myself) were part of the prize package too. It is really nice to have some new pieces to add to my jewellery box. One of my favourites prize is necklace is £150.00 from RubyGold, from Award winning designer, Henriette Loftsrom's Golden Symmetry Collection. The gorgeous olive green feather earrings and statement black ring are from Accessorize.  Thank you Lara, River Island, RubyGold and Accessorize! x

  7. I love the lace bodycon dress on you, but my favourite part of your outfit has to be your rings and your nail polish! I'm looking forward to seeing all the other goodies you have won. I've just been paid today and I've been looking at your online store, so I will probably make a purchase in the next few days because there are a few pieces I have my eye on :).
