Christmas Giveaway with Birmingham Airport

A couple of weeks ago I was invited down to Birmingham Airport to do a spot of Christmas Shopping. (Yes.. Christmas shopping at the airport.. good idea isn't it?)
I have to admit, I'd never thought about doing my shopping at the airport but the selection they have is huge and let's all just take a moment to appreciate the Duty Free section.. Am I right?
So as it turns out.. this was Christmas shopping with a twist:  I was challenged to a bit of a 'shop off' with Sian who- it was safe to say - had been a little more organised than me and had already decided what she was looking for. We both got given £150 to spend to pick up some Christmas presents for our friends and family and were then let loose among the travelers to shop until we dropped (quite literally)
Of course there was a time limit and so you can imagine the levels of 'faffing' that occured on my part. Nonetheless, I found it super easy to pick up gifts for my Mom, Auntie, Brother and Boyfriend and all for much cheaper than you'd find on the high street. The whole experience really made me realise that if I was flying near Christmas.. I could just get my shopping done at the airport with no stress, rather than rushing around trying to get it done before hand whilst probably spending more money and finding it a lot more stressful.
I picked up the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette for my Mom as it's got lots of nice neutral tones that are wearable on the regs (she's not really one for a dramatic eye for a Sainsbury's shop like I'm known to be.)I also picked up a really nice leather leopard print purse from Accessorize which could totally be used as a clutch and which I'm totally going to be stealing. I grabbed some Happy Plugs earphones for my bro in copper because well: copper and I just couldn't resist giving the Armarni Code fragrance to my fella for a bit of an early Crimbo gift because GUYS.. it's a gift for me to be able to smell him on a daily basis because it's just so.damn.good. (Of course this means I've got a bit of extra shopping to do before the end of the month but if I'm honest.. one of my favourite parts of the whole Christmas build up is getting gifts for my loved ones.. even is he is so damn hard to buy for. Why he can't just like coats and boots like your gal here is totally beyond me) I also got the YSL body cream in their new fragrance Mon Paris  - which I urge you to smell immediately - for my Auntie and got given a mini YSL mascara too!
The whole shopping spree was filmed and having a film crew following us round was of course a little strange but it did tend to open up a nice little walkway amongst the shoppers so I could easily reach my chosen products!If you want to see more of what we got up to and watch me run around like a headless chicken.. you can see more here.
Now then lads and lasses.. here's the exciting bit for YOU. The lovely team at Birmingham Airport actually let me pick up two of everything.. meaning that I've got this whole selection up for grabs for one of you lovely Blunderlings to win! (Sorry.. promise not to call you that ever again)
All you have to do is fill in the form below and hope for the best! There's lots of extra options to give you more entries which in turn will give you a better chance of winning! Winners are picked at random and I'll be running it for two weeks. I HOPE YOU WIN.
