Dot Makes 4 has 1st birthday!

Thursday, 4 February 2016

I can't believe it! As of next week, I  have been writing Dot Makes 4 for a year!




When I fist started writing, I never thought I would be where I am now.
I first started writing to share information about food allergies, but this blog has grown so much since then.

 I have had so many great things happen this year and I've done so many things, from meeting other bloggers to being lucky enough to review products, but more importantly, I've been able to share a little piece of me.


It's strange, because I was never one for a diary. I never knew what to write in one, but also, with three younger brothers and sisters, whatever I would've written would never be a secret for long!


Anywho! On to the birthday celebrations!


As a birthday treat, I thought I would give you something, as you've all given me so much. 
We all like a treat, so I thought it'd be great to give you the chance to win a little bit of luxury!


You can win two gift sets from Lush! Ray of Sunshine and Buttercup, both of which are perfect for brightening up a wintery day!


 To enter, just fill in the form below. Good luck!
