My Mac Palette Giveaway

happy birthday to me
I started reading blogs in 2012 but it was not until the following year that I started thinking about writing one myself. At that time all of the blogs I was reading seemed to be written by beautiful young woman and I really wasn’t sure that anyone would ever want to read anything written by someone whose 20s were a dim and distant memory and whose skin problems had more to do with ageing than hormones. I um’d and ah’d about it for a while then one day I decided to do it, to start my own blog.
That was the 15th Oct 2013 and it’s name was Lippy Likes.
My initial intention was to write a blog which addressed the particular style and skincare concerns of women my age but quickly found that I was gaining followers of all generations and realised that what women are looking for in a blog has got nothing whatsoever to do with age.
Slowly my blog evolved and I found myself writing about a much wider variety of topics than just beauty reviews – in fact julie-ellen regularly included posts about style, diet and fitness, lifestyle, and pretty much anything that interests me and I think might interest you.
Because of this move away from writing solely about beauty and towards everything that makes me who I am,  I decided to change the name of my blog from Lippylikes to my own name Julie-Ellen. I was intitially terrified that I might lose some followers by making so many changes but luckily you guys seemed to like them.
So two years on, Lippylikes is now Julie-Ellen, has a staggering 2479 followers and has had over 200,000 views.
I cannot tell you how much I love this blog and everyone who has ever read it!!!!
To thank you all I have decided to run a little giveaway. It is the first one I have run this year and so I wanted to make it a really good one. I thought and thought about what you all would like and kept coming back to Mac. Everyone likes Mac right? I know I do. And my favourite Mac purchase of the year is my Mac Warm Neutrals Palette.
 
15 pans of beautiful warm neutrals from Mac all housed in a Mac pro palette – whats not to love?
So it was decided. To celebrate a year’s blogging and to thank you all for your friendship and support, I am going to giveaway to one of you the Mac Neutrals Palette of your choice. If you have warm toned skin then you may prefer the warm palette, if you have a cool toned complexion then maybe the cool palette. But there are no rules – the palette you choose is entirely up to you.
All you have to do is enter via the Rafflecopter widget below.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

 And yes, this giveaway is open to all of my followers wherever you live – if Mac deliver to your country then you can enter the giveaway.
So thanks again, from the bottom of my heart for sticking by me this last year. I have loved every minute.
Happy birthday Julie-Ellen x
