Besame Give Away with What Katie Did!

Hey fabulous, 

So you've probably been wondering where the hell your favorite gruesome twosome have been right? Well we're currently in the process of moving in a big house together (with lots of friends and my boyfriend, Sam), so we've been super busy. More to the point, the job I was speaking about on my last post is keeping me very busy. I can now reveal that the company I've been working with is faux Vintage lingerie brand 'What Katie Did'! If you don't know of 'What Katie Did', the company produces fabulous reproduction lingerie and hoisery and also stocks Besame make up and Bernie Dexter dresses too.  My job mainly focuses on writing the What Katie Did blog and I am absolutely elated to be writing professionally so quickly. I am aiming to make the blog a very varied and topical space with heaps of personality. I am very happy at What Katie Did, its a very challenging and rewarding position.
I'd absolutely love it if you traveled over to the What Katie Did blog to read more of my writing and follow my journey with the brand

To celebrate What Katie Did are generously giving away three Besame Rouges. Besame is a fabulous retro makeup brand who make high quality products in beautiful packaging. We picked the rouge as its so timeless, perfect for a 'whimsical' (God I hate that word) look like ours or a 40s prim look, or a 50s pin up look, or a 30s look, or eclectic, or even non-vintage! The possibilities are endless people!


Looks great as matching lip balm too. The rouge is packaged in a beautiful vintage style tin, no more grim plastic covers. 

The competition runs for one week from today to Friday the 16th at midnight. 
Enter the competition here and fill in your details daaaarlings!
