Birthday give-away winner

I announce the winner of my birthday give-away!

Hi everyone,

A really quick post this morning to let you know that I drew the winner for the prize draw.

I gave everyone a number and then told Siri to generate a random number.

The winning number belonged to …. Andrea! I’ve emailed Andrea and will get her prizes sent off once I have her address.

Thanks to those who took part! If you didn’t win this time, I have future plans for similar things, so make sure you follow or sign-up for updates if you want to know what is happening on Unseen Beauty in the future!

Never miss another post!

September give-away

September is my birthday month, and to celebrate, I’m doing a give-away for readers in the UK.

This give-away is to thank my readers for their support since Unseen Beauty started at the beginning of the year.

I’ve bought a couple of my favourite skincare products from the Body Shop, and added in some other skincare products. Details of how you can win are below. The draw will be open throughout September and I’ll notify the winner at the beginning of October.

What you can win

  • Body Shop mango body butter
  • Body Shop grapefruit hand cream
  • Body Shop satsuma shower gel
  • Face mask and muslin cloth
  • 2 mini Sanctuary Spa candles
  • Sanctuary Spa face mask
  • Sanctuary Spa body scrub
  • Lavender soap
  • Maybelline duo contour and highlight cream stick

The Body Shop products are from my favourite ranges, so I do hope you like fruity things!

I’ve tried to stay away from make-up because I think this is a more personal choice and I don’t want people to get colours that they don’t like, or that don’t work for them.

I know the cream contour and highlight won’t be the right shade for everyone. I originally bought it for myself, but as the two colours are on the same stick, it will be hard for me to use it because I can’t see where one ends and the other begins. I really wanted a double-ended one, so hope someone can get some use out of this – I’m all about the creams! If it’s not your colour, maybe you have a friend who would like it!

What do you have to do to enter?

All you need to do is enter your details in the form below. The questions are to make sure that you’re a real person, and they also give me the chance to find out what people like, and what other blogs I can check out. This is a UK-only give-away.

Terms and conditions

  1. The give-away is open until 23:59 on Saturday September 30th 2017 and I’ll draw the winner on Monday 2nd October.
  2. 1 entry per person.
  3. This is a UK only giveaway, so the winner will need to be able to provide an address in the UK for the prize to be sent to..
  4. I will give each person a number and then draw the winner by asking Siri to generate a random number.
  5. I will contact the winner on 2nd October to ask for their address so that I can send the prize. The winner will have 7 days in which to respond. If they haven’t responded after 7 days, I will draw a new winner.
  6. No cash alternatives are available and the winner is responsible for checking product ingredients for any known allergens)

Finding your writing voice

Today’s post is a guest post that I wrote for the UK Bloggers’ site. It’s about some things to consider when you’re developing your unique style of writing, or your blogging voice. How do you want to sound to readers? What parts of your personality do you want to bring out?

There are plenty of posts about how to get more readers or take great pictures, but your own blogging voice is a powerful tool – and it’s one that only you have!

You can check out the article here.

Update to the featured products pages

Today’s post is just to let you know that I’ve been busy updating the featured products pages.

When you click on the main featured products page, it takes you to a page with a list of categories.

From here, you can choose the one that most interests you. For example, the one that has the most content is skincare, where there is a table with all the good skincare products that I have mentioned so far, where you can find them, and the link to the post in which I talked about them.

Other categories include bath and shower products, hair care, fragrance, and make-up.

If I didn’t like a product, it won’t be featured on these pages.

I hope this will make it easier for people who are interested in what I have written about specific types of products.

Podcast

I’ve been running my podcast for language learners for around a year and a half now. I know that many beauty and lifestyle bloggers have Youtube channels, but I really don’t want to do that. I don’t like producing videos and I don’t have the skills to edit them. I have, however, learned how to make podcasts, and this is something that I enjoy doing. Therefore I decided to do a little experiment and see whether people who prefer to consume content as audio would be interested in a podcast.

At the moment, I’m uploading past content. When I’ve caught up, the new blog post and the audio files will go out on the same days – usually Tuesdays and Fridays.

If you want to listen to the podcast, you can find it on iTunes or Player FM.

The URL for the podcast feed is
https://player.fm/series/unseen-beauty

The discussions will still take place here on the blog, but it’s another option for people who like audio content. Please share the information if you think your friends will like it!

Welcome to my blog!

Hi and welcome to my blog!

This is where I’ll share my thoughts about beauty products, wellness, food, things that I love, travel, and whatever else I think my readers would enjoy.

This blog is different to other beauty blogs. You won’t find many pictures here because, due to my blindness, I can’t take photos. If I’m with my friends and photos are taken, I’ll upload them, but this blog is more about the text than the images. If I’m talking about products, I’ll try to link them so that you can see what I’m talking about.

Let me know what you think about the posts by leaving me a comment, and if you don’t want to miss a post, you can sign up for my alerts and I’ll email you when a new post comes out, usually on a Friday.

I hope you enjoy the blog!

Kirsty
