A Christmas Gift From Me To You


Christmas 2014 Giveaway

I’ve just been looking at my advent calendars and realised that it’s just 15 days to Christmas. How crazy is that?

As I’m frantically getting gifts for loved ones (gift guides, my backside, right, when even I do all these things at the very last minute? πŸ˜› ), there are a couple of gifts that I’ve actually been accumulating since September. And guess what? Those gifts are for you!

Each year, I run a Christmas giveaway for you, dear readers, and this year is no different. Okay, there’s perhaps a slight difference this time as only a small portion of the prizes are beauty products. As y’all know, I’m a bit of a stationery lover and hoarder, and this year I’m bringing the planning bug to you. Think planners, stationery, washi tape … all that good stuff.

It’s nothing super fancy; perhaps it could be something to help you kickstart 2015 by being organised with a planner? I’ve always just used sticky notes and Google Calendar to plan my time and to-do lists but ever since I started using a proper planner early 2014, I can’t even begin to tell you how much it has increased my productivity. I hope this Christmas gift from me to you will help you make 2015 a truly kick-ass year for you.

Christmas 2014 Giveaway

Two lucky winners will win a planning set that consists of:

  • A Filofax Domino personal-sized planner (with 2014 and 2015 inserts)
  • Writing material e.g. 2 MUJI highlighters and 2 Pilot Frixion pens (including refills because it’s bloody annoying when good pens don’t come with refills. These are my absolutely favourite pens).
  • MUJI sticky tabs
  • Washi tape
  • MUJI blank monthly planner (great for planning blog content)
  • Kate Spade sticky notes

Christmas 2014 Giveaway

I love the sticky notes from Kate Spade and am currently kicking myself for only getting 2 sets instead of one more for myself. πŸ˜› These planner sets are sponsored by yours truly.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Beautyholics Anonymous without a single beauty item so The Body Shop has kindly offered two Christmas sets for this Christmas giveaway as well. It’ll be one set per winner. I’m not going to tell you which set you’ll win; it’s going to be a surprise!

Christmas 2014 Giveaway - The Body Shop

I wanted to do something a little different than just giving away beauty products upon beauty products and I hope this will be useful to you. My planner has been immensely useful to me; I don’t know what I’d do without it!

    Hi Tine,
    I am from sunny Perth Australia.
    In 2015 we hope to be able to move into our family home that we have planned and designed ourselves. It’s taken forever!! Crossing my fingers and toes that we should be in before Christmas 2015. I am such an disorganized person, the planner will come in very handy and because I am so old school, even with my smart phone, I still like putting pen to paper and writing my lists. There’s a certain satisfaction crossing things off my “To do List”
