October 5th is an important day around these parts. On that date in 2010, the first post went live on this little beauty blog. Two years and nearly 600 posts later, the site is going from strength to strength.
And there has been so much to celebrate around here lately. Fluff and Fripperies is a Blog Awards Ireland finalist (one of 7 in the fashion and beauty category, from a list of 96!), has featured in one of my favourite Irish publications, U Magazine – check out this post for more – and recently passed 1000 followers on Google Friend Connect. I’ve also had the opportunity to write for one of my favourite Irish websites, Beaut.ie, since February, which I still pinch myself about on a regular basis.
Along the way I’ve met some really amazing people- from Lisa Eldridge (!!!), to all of the lovely likeminded bloggers, journalists and beauty PRs who are as equally bonkers about beauty and fashion as I am. And of course I’ve got to know so many of you lovely people, who take the time to visit and read and comment – I appreciate it more than you know.
And obviously, I want to share the love. So throughout the month I’ve lined up a series of amazing giveaways, with prizes you won’t want to miss. From hair transformations to hampers full of makeup, skincare, hair products and more, there will thousands of euro worth of beauty booty up for grabs over the next few weeks.
Some giveaways will be open in Ireland only, some in Ireland and the UK, and some will be open internationally - so make sure you regularly check back to the site. You might also want to follow me on twitter or Facebook or even by email, for regular updates – and a few sneaky little giveaways that will be run through social media only. (While we're on the topic you might wanna check this out!)
Thanks so much to all of the brands who are generously supporting the Fluff and Fripperies Birthday Bonanza – and thanks again to you, for reading. It means so much more than you know!
