Barratts Competition Update!

Sooooo, it’s here! The blog post all the entrants of my Barratts competition have been waiting for. I must say, despite not being a massive fan of hosting blog competitions, this one has been AMAZING! I’ve loved every second of it. Looking at the entries has been a particular pleasure and also discovering so many new blogs to read at the same time! It has been so so hard to narrow it down to 3 final posts for YOU to decide the final WINNER. But I think I’ve got it in the end. Now when choosing these posts, please remember I have done it this way to try and make it as FAIR as possible. There’s no popularity contests here! I haven’t even looked at the number of followers each blog has, I’ve simply chosen the ones which stood out in my opinion. But before we do that, let’s just announce the winner of the £30 prize draw! Here goes nothing…… *drumroll*

Woohoo! High Five Laura! You were the first name to come up on the Rafflecopter winner picker thingy. I’ll e-mail you within the next few days with details of how to claim your £30!
So the big £70 prize. After much deliberation I’ve managed to whittle it down to 3 that I thought stood out the most. 
Finalist 1: She Wore Fashion Out < click to view post
I really liked how Molly gave hints and tips for shoe shopping at the end of the post! Handy information and  a keen eye for some super awesome selections. Including the Truffle Paisley Lace Up Ankle Boots! Aren’t they beautiful?!
Finalist 2: Knickers and Nail Polish < click to view post.
I really liked Sarah’s collages and how she even made a little scene to go with the shoe selections! So creative and as you can imagine, totally caught my eye! I can tell so much effort was put in to that post and the write up is lovely to accompany the pictures.
Finalist 3: Amour La Fille < click to see the post!
Leah pushed the boat out with her Autumnal themed selections and I think the in depth write ups on each shoe was perfect. I also love the picture! It makes me want to go out and kick crispy leaves!
Simple head to the POLL in the top RIGHT corner and click the entry YOU think should win!!
Simple! Remember this isn’t a popularity contest, I want the one you genuinely like the best!
Winner will be announced next Monday!
Good luck guys!!

    It's too difficult to choose… But in all honesty, some of my favourite entries aren't in the final three… I shall remain anon in case of possible outrage over this last comment of mine… Sorry an' all, but I'm just being honest….

      No need to be anon! Everyone's entitled to an opinion here! Haha. I guess it's down to personal tastes?! I felt the three I chose were the ones that stood out to me the most, but I just wanted it to be fair so that's why it's 3 for readers to vote on and not just me choosing the final winner.
