A tonne(?) of snow and a Giveaway :) *CLOSED*

 *A few inches of snow is a tonne for us Londoners okay! We don't live in Canada you see.

It doesn't usually happen in this country with an occasional white Christmas but this time its a bit too much for us to handle. We get all scared and petrified and don't know how to deal with it lol. A footstep in the backyard creates a foot impression and everyone in the family measures how many inches would that be. It is beyond funny!

I however really like it but don't like how the country comes to a standstill with petty inches of white fluff. I am off from university now for Christmas but if need be I would really not mind making my way out. Just deal with it people :p

So this was yesterdays scene where it started snowing at the speed of rain. No joke!











It was fun initially until it all turned to ugly slippery ice followed by another snow shower covering all the ice leading to car skidding and all that not so fun stuff. 

Its finally stopped snowing after hours now but the sky tells a totally different story. I swear its going to snow more! :)




I love how it settles on trees, so cute!





Our backyard is unrecognisable and look what its done to my poor little swing lol.



Knowing that the condition is pretty much the same across whole of the UK I thought most of you guys must be indoor this weekend so why not enter your self in this little giveaway.

Up for grabs is a Sleek Eyeshadow Pot, Batiste Gold Dry Shampoo, Eldora's Lashes, MyFaceCosmetics Blusher, Lipgloss and Lipstick and a cute little Lipstick Case.


All you have to do is to write Enter Me in the comments below along with your name and email and your entry will be counted. Of course you can write any additional comments if you wish. The giveaway will end next Saturday exactly on Christmas day on the 25th December at 11.59GMT and one lucky reader will win these goodies worth £40. 

Open Worldwide as a majority of my readers are from outside the UK :)

We had some in Southwark yesterday and today at my parents house they have had a lot. Driving and walking is fine on the main roads but it just looks so pretty..and it acts like its own light. It's nearly five now and it would be pitch black outside but I can see things pretty clearly.
