Happy Birthday Non Optional!

It has been one whole year since I sat down and created this blog.  In part it was for university, never thinking it would ever amount to much.  Another part of me created it for my fashion ramblings.  My family always give me a 'what the fug?' look whenever I speak of fashion and my friends aren't all that into it.  Enter my blog, named Non Optional, because to me fashion isn't an option and a year later we're still going strong!  

To say thank you to you, my amazing followers and loyal readers, I thought it only fair I give you a present.  I am finally getting round to holding my first giveaway!  The prize will be a choice of two things which are among some of my beauty staples.  If you win, you can choose from these two items:

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish

MAC Lipstick (Colour of your choice)

- Be a follower of this blog, via GFC
- Leave a comment below stating your favourite A/W 11 fashion or beauty trend, your email so I can contact you if you win, your chosen prize and if you've done any extra entries.
