 I have finally chosen the prizes for my very first blog giveaway! There will be TWO WINNERS - each will receive their own #BackToSchool survival kit compiled by me! Keep scrolling for the information on how to enter...

The prizes are :
1 x travel washbag containing
1 x 50ml Batiste Dry Shampoo in either Tropical or Fresh
1 x 35ml Sure Long Lasting Protection deodorant
1 x Extra White gum in Peppermint
1 x Extra White gum in Bubblegum
1 x 19ml Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose
1 x pink polka dot nail file
a little cluster of blonde and brown bobby pins
1 x Barry M Gelly nail polish in either Lychee or Prickly Pear

There are TWO prizes for TWO winners. You may only enter this giveaway ONCE through the Rafflecopter method provided below. One winner will be chosen through my Rafflecopter method (as I am unsure as to whether it will provide me with an option to choose a second winner) and the second winner will be entered into a random number generator after the first winner has been chosen to determine who receives the remaining rescue kit.

There is only ONE mandatory entry and that is to leave a comment telling me what you're most looking forward to when you go back to school, work or university. Do not forget to add your email address to the comment you write, I cannot contact you if you win without having your email address available!
The other entries are optional; to "like" my Facebook page, to follow me on Twitter, to tweet about the giveaway with the tweet & hashtag provided and lastly to follow me on GFC or Bloglovin'. Please note none of the final 4 options is mandatory. I am not running this giveaway to gain followers on my blog, though of course if it directs new readers to helloissyxo that is great. I run this blog for my own enjoyment and to give my readers my honest options on beauty, fashion and lifestyle products.
You do not have to go to school, work or university to enter this giveaway although the prize is aimed at someone in those environments so please be considerate when entering.

This giveaway runs from the evening of Sunday September 1st until 12:00AM on Monday September 9th. The winner(s) will be contacted within 48hours of the closing time.
