bonsoir Ladies.. and err.. Gents..:)

Hows the week treating you so far? 

The intention of the post is to update you all on the giveaway I was planning.. 

 I've been so busy the last week and this week i dint find any time to check up on anything and neither am I clear about how to go about it.. I wanted to hold a big fat international giveaway.. but I really need to get a lot of things right before that.. Sot its not happening anytime soon.

But since I did talk about it already, I will definitely hold a national summer ready giveaway for you'll. :) This is  also going to be a practice on what the final giveaway would be for me.. :) 
And I'm giving away-
The Body Shop Bath Cube in Strawberry to be absolutely summer ready! :)

he body wash and the body lotion

These are 60ml bottles, NOT the regular sized ones.

This also includes a bath lilly (I guess this is mini too).

And again I want to as you'll if I should include the superawesome  bath gloves OR a Maybelline Moisture extreme lipstick in a colour of your choice. :) (please give me 2-3 choices)
You can check out the bath glove here (this pair belongs to my mum and the colour of the gloves will be subject to availability)

I will also drop a surprise with it! :)

I know this dint exactly turnout as we all expected.. but then I need to do this before I hold the other giveaway sometime around my birthday or the blogs cause thats when I'll be getting paid! yayyyyeeee :P
