30 for 30 Challenge and a giveaway.

I have joined the '30 for 30' challenge being run by Kendi Everyday so this is my first post. I'm a little late joining because I have been at home with my parents most of the week but am excited and looking forward to the challenge. So whats this all about? Well you have to choose 30 items of clothing and wear them for the next 30 days, remixing 30 different outfits. (this does not have to be done in 30 consecutive days but its kinda fun this way and more challenging). Belts, Sports wear, PJ and accessories don't count in the 30 but Jackets and Shoes do. Plus for the whole time you are on the challenge you can't shop. So this will be good for my bank balance too!

Here are my 30 items.

8 Tops
2 Vests
1 Jacket and 2 Cardigans

4 Dresses
4 Skirts
4 Bottoms
5 Shoes
I tried to think a bit strategically about choosing my items so this took, truthfully, about 3 hours! lol! I think I have enough items to last the 30 days and hopefully come up with 30 outfits without having to do anything ridiculous.
There are lots of lovely ladies involves in this challenge so you can check them all out here!

On another note I have finally, finally reached my 300 followers, yay!! So it's time for another giveaway. This time all the items are from me (not a shop like usual) as this is me thanking all my 300 followers. Because I love you all very much!
So on to the prizes!
A Lancome Paris Hypnose Mascara
A Nars LiquidLast Eye-Liner
An Eyeko Minty Fat Balm
A Flower Power Rose Moisture Balance Facial Mask
A cherry print Claire's Pen (for writing on ...)
A set of Beautiful Vintage Style Stationary Set

There you have it. A think there is a little something for everyone. But if I get lots of people entering I will add more items.

So the rules. This one is nice and easy.
  • Be a Follower
  • Leave me a comment on something you would like to see more of on my blog or something you like
  • Include an email or blog link so I can get hold of you
Thats all this time, just one entry per person.

oh forgot to say the giveaway will end on the 12th August (a long one this!)

  5. Hi Daisymay!

    I was not born with a great sense of fashion so I would love to see you mix and match pieces of clothing and jewelry. Maybe I can get ideas from you for my next night out with the girls!

    Great giveaway. My first time to enter.

  9. I'd like to see tips for accessorizing and maybe see some of your favorite recipes. I'm already a follower.

  10. Wow that looks like such a good challenge! Reminds me a bit of Gok Wan's capsule wardrobe idea :)

    Congratulations on 300+ followers! I'd like to see more tips on how to accessorize, and how to mix and match items in your wardrobe which coincides with your new challenge :D xxx

  11. Hi, Daisymay! Thank you so much for dropping by! You have a lovely blog! I certainly want to be part of this great giveaway. I'll take my time to read your blog in more detail and then take part.

    I'd love to join you in the challenge, but I wear totally different clothes for work and for my day to day life; it'd be way too hard to choose only 30 items. Not that I have that many, anyway, hehe.

    Tight hug!


  12. Oh my goodness, I could never do this challenge - it would take me DAYS to decide what to use!!

  13. hi, i'm a follower. and i would love to enter your giveaway. i would love to see more reviews in your blog:D

  14. new follower!! woot!

    as someone who is over 40 I'd love to see outfits that would be appropriate for us older folks, especially given my recent post where I was bombarded about my inappropriate top ;-)

  15. Wow, that challenge sounds fun and ... challenging! Have fun!

  16. I love the 30 in 30 days idea! I have a feeling I wouldn't be able to follow through.
    PS I LOVE lancome hypnose, I just bought some more today!

  17. cute giveaway! I love your studded flats, and I think the 30 for 30 challenge is a great way to test your remixing abilities!


    Chic on the Cheap

  18. Looks like your remixing is coming along well! Sadly I could not get an outfit post done today, I ended up working all day. BOOO! Ah, well. So, my favorite thing about your blog so far is the budget vs. breaking the bank. I really enjoy seeing the trends represented at different price points.
    have a good one!

  34. Hi :) I'm following via Google (Jasmine1485)

    My favourite posts are your outfit ones, I like seeing how you combine colours, patterns and accessories, it gives me ideas for things to try myself. It'll be interesting to see how wide a range of looks you can create during 30 from 30. Product reviews would be good too, I tend to stick with what I know is effective, but if I read a good review I'm more likely to branch out.

    I'd like to see you going different places in England so we get to see what the place is like. I travelled to England a long, long time ago and totally loved it. It'd be nice to see images from the country again from the point of view of a local :).

    Hope you're having an amazing day!
