Taken By Surprise Giveaway!

Hello everyone, as some of you may know, Taken By Surprise reached 10,000 views a while back!!

And to celebrate, I promised you all a giveaway, because freebies are pretty much the best thing ever, and because your readership and comments give me the warm and fuzzies, I will be sharing the love by sending one of you lucky readers a little gift in the mail!

The winner will receive three sets of Butter London Nail Applications! (designs pictured below)

As you know, I'm a huge fan of nail applications! They're so easy to use, plus you don't need to sit around waiting for them to dry, or have to put up with the smell! I'm rarely without my nails done, so I thought I'd share the nail art love :)

Ways to enter:
1. Follow Taken By Surprise on Google Friend Connect (GFC)
2. Like Taken By Surprise on Facebook
3. Follow Taken By Surprise on Bloglovin'
4. Follow @hi_JLY on Twitter

Each method will give you one entry, so if for example, you follow on GFC and like on Facebook, that's two entries!

Make sure you leave a comment on this post with:
-your name
-email address (So I can contact you if you win!)
-and what kind of entry you submitted (e.g. GFC, Facebook, etc.) - I'll be checking!

**Readers who came to this post via Facebook, you can enter the giveaway by:**
Liking Taken By Surprise on Facebook, and leaving a comment on the giveaway post so I know to add your name into the draw.

Thanks again everyone, and best of luck in the giveaway!
