Girl in the Lens


I’m so excited to be sharing this post with you all today as it’s been a long time in the making! I’ve known for a while that this Christmas I wanted to do a huge giveaway, and these past few weeks I’ve been busy organising the exciting prizes with lots of our lovely blog sponsors. Callum and I just wanted to do something to say a big thank you for your support this year. It’s been such a fun twelve months for our little blog, and we have so many more exciting things in store. Whether you’ve been with us for the whole three years or have joined us recently as a new follower, our blog wouldn’t be what it is today without each and every one of you – so thank you thank you thank you!

Every day I’ve been getting more and more excited as the prize packages for this giveaway just keep growing – I mean, just look at that spread above! In total the goodies come to a whopping £800! It brings me so much happiness to know that soon some of you will be enjoying these treats. So have a read on to find out how to enter and get your hands on one of the prizes …

The rules are simple: just leave a comment below stating which prize package you’d like to win and how you follow us – whether it’s via email subscription, Bloglovin, Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook or Instagram. We don’t mind how! If you follow us on more than one platform be sure to let us know as each counts as one entry, so the more you follow the more entries you’ll have. For extra entries you can also share the giveaway on Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram and on your own blogs (only one share per platform). If you do this, remember to leave me the links in your comment so I can count each entry. And don’t forget to tag me @girlinthelens in your tweets and Instagram posts!

The giveaway is open internationally and winners will be chosen at random. Entries close at midnight 24th December and I’ll announce the lucky winners the next day (25th December) so the prizes will feel like an extra special Christmas present! You could always try and win one of the sets as a gift for someone special if there’s nothing here that takes your fancy, though hopefully with five different prize packages to choose from you’ll be sure to find one you love 🙂 here’s what’s up for grabs …

Fashion prize package


There’s quite an eclectic mix of things in this prize package, but all are little treasures. There is a gorgeous Cath Kidston tote bag, a Shore Projects watch, and an absolute beauty of a ring from Swarovski in a stunning blue crystal that will be perfect for any parties you have this festive season. There are also a couple of books for style inspiration – Alexa Chung’s It and vintage bible This Old Thing by Dawn O’Porter. And of course every girl needs a Christmas jumper, so I’ve popped in the same New Look one I’m wearing in the photos above in a size medium.

Beauty prize package


Oh no, your eyes don’t deceive you – this prize package really is packed full of so many beauty treats! There are too many for me to list, so just enjoy poring over the photo above and thinking how you’d use all these goodies if you won. I’ve selected a range of products to make sure you’re covered this party season, including styling products from John Frieda, my favourite eye and cheeks palette from Nars, and This Works’ miracle cracker to refresh and hydrate your skin after all that partying!

Tech prize package


This package is a trio of tech goodies – all with stylish flair of course! This is definitely the one to pick if you love your gadgets. There’s a Cambridge Audio G2 portable speaker for you to play your festive tunes on (I have the same gold version myself), a super cute Cath Kidston iPad case to dress up your tablet, and – this is one for fans of all things retro – a Viddy build-it-yourself pinhole camera kit! It’s the perfect post-Christmas project and all you need to do once it’s built is pop a film roll in and get shooting!

Food prize package


Your kitchen will look super cute with this mix of foodie goodies, including quirky Cath Kidston kitchen essentials and teas from Whittard’s gorgeous Alice in Wonderland range. This prize package is particularly special to me as I’m a big foodie and always rustling up something in my kitchen. Plus, Alice in Wonderland is one of my all-time favourite books. “Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast!”     

Home prize package


You’re absolutely guaranteed a cosy Christmastime if you win these gifts! I’ve stuffed this package full of all the things that I think make your home more homely and welcoming on those bitter winter days – I hope you’ll agree! There are scented candles and fragrances from Next, as well as their adorable Morris the Moose cushion, slippers from Bedroom Athletics, a Nuuna notepad for you to record your New Year’s Resolutions, and a couple more goodies as well.

Phew! So those are all the prizes you can win! Be sure to have a good think before you choose which package you want because you can only pick one, then just leave your comment below once you’ve completed your entries and your name will be added to my Santa’s list. Best of luck sweethearts! Callum and I wish you all a very merry festive season! x
