Urban Decay Birthday Giveaway & Special Thank You

Well, A Scottish Lass blog turns 2 in August - I can hardly believe it.  Since I started blogging I have met, and become friends with some really lovely people - Sasha, Sophie, Luchessa, Laura - too many names to mention everyone but I love them all.  In November last year I met and had dinner in  New York City with one of my favourites Leslie, which was definitely up there with the highlights of my trip.

I have met some brilliant Scottish Bloggers along the way too - Kirsty, Laura, Ashly, Rachel G, Rachel B & Amey.  

Lastly, but by far least - one very special Welsh lady I am honoured to call a friend - Georgina, we talk like we've known each other our whole lives.

This is a side to blogging I really didn't expect when I started out.  I started blogging to talk about a subject I am passionate about, to fill my evenings and to express my views.  Then suddenly experienced such support from the Blogging Community it has been absolutely amazing.  

To celebrate 'A Scottish Lass' turning 2 in August.  I am giving away The Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette and an Urban Decay Naked Lipgloss (your choice of shade).  As a thank you for all being so brilliant to me.  The competition will run for a month, please follow the Rafflecopter widget below to enter.  It will be open internationally too.  Good luck and here's to another year.

Isle of Skye Candles - Mango

Mango, Isle of Skye Candle Company, Candles

The lovely people from the Isle of Skye Candle Company very kindly sent me some of their absolutely gorgeous candles.  I love candles, as I am sure you are aware.  These candles are truly special, completely handmade using natural soya wax.  So not only do they smell utterly divine, they are environmentally friendly too.

July - the monthly roundup

I know it isn't quite the end of July yet, but I am particularly busy from now until the end of the month so thought I would post my July roundup slightly early.   
July has been one roller coaster of emotions. 

At the beginning of the month the school holidays started and we took a trip up to 'Wick' to visit family.  For those of you who don't know, Wick is a small town at the very top of Scotland, around 40 miles from John O'Groats.  Some of the loveliest scenery you will ever see is up in the Scottish Highlands.  We found a hotel named 'Mackay Hotel', we thought this was a great photo opportunity!

Inspired by the old school glamour of Sophia Loren and Jackie O, Lamb 1887 bags, favoured by style mavens Pippa Middleton, Fearne Cotton and Millie Mackintosh, deliver timeless elegance with modern updates and on-trend prints and colours. The heir to a fourth generation leather empire, founder Charlotte Lamb brings a wealth of experience to her designs from a business originally established by her great grandfather, an artisan cobbler, in 1887.
