MAC Gift Card Giveaway !!! CLOSED.

 I could not believe my eyes when my counter shot up to 103 when I logged on to blogger this morning. I believe the lovely Amy, or Dazzledust25 as some of you may know her, gave my little blog a mention on her twitter which obviously boosted it!! So thank you so much Amy for the lovely shout out, I'm glad you are enjoying my blog :D
I really do appreciate all of you who have taken the time to read, follow and comment on my blog, so this is for you :)

Now for the fun stuff...
I am going to be giving away a £20 MAC Gift Card, now I know its not the most extravagant of prizes but I am on a students budget now! But I figure its better getting a gift card than being limited to a particular product say a lipstick or eyeshadow, so you can buy, or put it towards, anything that MAC sell! At the moment you are unable to use gift cards to purchase online, however it says on the website that you can from October, so by the time this giveaway ends you should be able to spend it online too, if you are unable to visit a MAC counter :)

The boring bit (The Rules) :
- This giveaway will close in exactly one month so 13th October.
- You have to be a follower, obviously since I am doing it for all of you lovelies!
- It is open internationally.

- I will be entering everyone into a spreadsheet and then using to generate a winner!

How to enter:
-To enter just leave a comment telling me what you would like to see more of on my blog! Ooh and also what you would be spending the gift card on :) You can only comment enter once!
-Please leave your email or blog link so I am able to contact you if you win!

Extra entries:
1 extra - Put a link in your side bar to this post including the picture above.
2 extra - Do a blog post about the giveaway including the picture above.

1 extra - Follow me on twitter @beautymarked24. I am BRAND new to twitter and have no clue whats going on half of the time but I will get there eventually haha! 
1 Extra - Tweet about the giveaway :)
Please leave a comment including any extra entries you might have done along with links to your blog and stuffs :)

I think that's about it... I'm sure I'll remember something else to include once I've posted it, but hey ho!

Happy entering :D
