Competition time!!!

Did you know this blog is almost 2 years old (on the 17th October to be precise)? Well, VoucherCodes.co.uk are approaching their first birthday and you guys are about to benefit from a joint birthday treat! It's the first competition I've ever held and I'm super excited!

For those who didn't know, VoucherCodes.co.uk picks out the very latest online voucher codes, restaurant vouchers, days out vouchers and sales for all the leading online stores - to help you save your cash. Pretty helpful if you're a skint student like myself! Or one of these recessionista-bargainista-frugal-fashionista types. Some of their great fashion offers include a 15% off Motel Clothing discount code, a Marks and Spencer Promotional Code, some New Look Discount Codes and a Karen Millen Promotional Code. There's also a 15% off Benefit Cosmetics discount code which I plan to thoroughly abuse!

So anyway, back to you guys. Up for grabs is a gorgeous Liberty Lost Property eco bag, designed by Katy Bell, worth £50. These bags are made from recycled coffee sacks and Liberty fabric and are also reversible (2 for the price of one. And that price is zero! So, if we're being honest here, it's 2 bags for free!) Due to being made from totally recycled fabrics, the bags are one of a kind. This means there's a bit of mystery as to what yours will look like but it will be very similar to the bag below. Cute as heck, no?

To win, indulge my Geminian nosey side and leave me a comment telling me 3 things that are in your handbag. A winner will be chosen at random after the competition closes on Thursday 22nd October. Don't forget to leave your email address if it isn't on your Blogger profile!

The competition is only available to UK readers due to laws 'n' stuff. Full T's & C's available here.

    My favourite leather gloves - ruched, pewter and super sexy

    A million receipts from all those lovely things I can't help but keep buying.

  12. In my bag are:

    pink i - pod for that all too crucial 'blocking out the world with music' moments.

    a wide variety of pens, essential for a nerd such as myself.

    and my wallet, of course! x

  13. currently in my bag:

    ipod - i've found it necessary to take my mind off walking up the hill to my uni house with music in order to not feel like i'm dying because i'm so unfit

    my purse now containing so many cards/bus pass/library receipts that it doesn't close properly

    bottle of water/throat sweets/packet of mints - needed to get through lectures and seminars without a coughing fit thanks to the cold which is currently destroying my throat

    in conclusion my bag is no fun and far too full of uni related things :(

  15. Ohh i love competitions.
