Giveaway: Purminerals Beautiful Creatures Palette! [Now Closed]

Hello! Happy June! As a little thank you for reading my ramblings and always always always being so lovely to me I want to start doing a few more little giveaways here and there. Unfortunately I can't buy a little gift for each and every one of you, if I could I totally would, but I hope that this is the next best thing! 
Today I'm super excited to be giving away a Purminerals Beautiful Creatures Palette which, as far as I know, is limited edition and only available in the US. Inside is a palette with 8 beautiful shadows, there are a few nude shades, a gorgeous moss green & some purples too. I think there are a lot of beautiful looks that can be created & I know one of you will absolutely love this palette and be able to get creative with it. There is also a black eyeliner and a pretty neutral pinky gloss included as well.

The Rules:
1. Be a follower of this blog via either Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin'.
2. Leave a comment on this post telling me one thing that made you smile this week!
3. Leave your email address or twitter name with your comment so I can contact you if you win!

And that's it! Good Luck! 

Terms & Conditions.
This giveaway will close at midnight BST on Sunday June 8th 2013. It's open internationally, if I can post to your country I will. There will be one winner, chosen at random on Monday June 9th 2013 and they will be contacted directly by me.

I have recently lost quite a bit of weight (I was a size 22!) and I sobbed my little heart out in the changing rooms in Forever 21. To be fair I think I'm actually a 16 and the shorts were very stretchy denim, but I was so chuffed!

    My doggie Boo has also had his hair cut in time for the summer and he looks so funny with a no1 - it makes me smile every time I see him!

  87. Something really small actually. A little girl on the bus was asked by another passenger what she wanted to be when she grew up. She said a piece of sticky tape. Everyone had a giggle at that but i thought what a nice thing to be. If you were a piece of sticky tape. Everyone would want to you around. You could fix just about anything and without you presents for all special occasions would be rather rubbish! What a lovely thing to want to be. All I wanted to be was spiderman hehehe.
