It is summertime in Australia and we are set to have a scorcher. I might not be able to cool the entire continent but I am hoping I can bring some chills to a few lucky people with my Summer Giveaway!

Thanks to a bunch of our partners and my very own bank account we have 13 wonderful prizes to giveaway. We have fashion, beauty and lifestyle goodies up for grabs and you can only win them here. Let’s see what I have for you this season:

ORLY Feel The Vibe Collection Mini Kit

I absolutely adore ORLY’s Feel The Vibe nail polish collection and it will be one of my summer staples for neon nails. One lucky winner will score the Mini Kit collection including 4 mini bottles (5.4ml) of Beach Cruiser (bright pink creme), Glowstick (fluro yellow creme), Melt Your Popsicle (orange creme) and Skinny Dip (light blue creme).

Available from ORLY Australia, selected pharmacies, salons and spas, and Beauty Bay.

Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Mon Shu Collector’s Pin

Money can’t buy items are my most loved and hated of all collector items. When Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura launched their Holiday 2012 collection they came out with an adorable collectors pin of Karl Lagerfeld’s icon creation, Mon Shu. Two lucky winners will win one of these extremely rare Mon Shu pins and be the envy of all their friends.

The Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Holiday 2012 collection is available now from David Jones and Shu Uemura USA.

Opal London Silky Sleep Mask

With the sun shining bright extra early and extra late, I cannot survive without a sleeping mask to block out the sunshine. My absolute favourite is the Silky Sleep Mask from Opal London which is lightly cushioned and comes with a thick elastic strap with velcro closure. I toss and turn all night and this baby never comes off!

Three winners will score a gold silky eye mask to get them through sleepless nights.

Scunci Bun Maker

Even though I recently cut most of my hair off, I am still finding the length I do have to be extra hot on my neck during these hot summer days. Thanks to the Scunci Bun Maker I can get my hair off my neck and look like I have a nice full bun as well. It is the perfect hair helper this season.

Available from Big W, Target, and Priceline. In the USA it is called the Conair Bun Maker, available from Folica, ULTA, Walgreens and

Beanbag Table

I am a pretty lazy person most days but during summer I am extra lazy. I like to sit on my bed with the fan on full power while I lie there and barely move. The only problem is working from bed was really uncomfortable until I found these beanbag tables. They have a super comfy, lightweight beanbag with a plastic tray attached with velco and I use it for everything. Manicures are a breeze with all my tools sitting right in front of my and giving me a sturdy surface to lean on. And when I need to whip the laptop out I simply detach the plastic tray and rest my computer on the beanbag, making my lap comfy and the hot laptop from burning my legs.

Three winners will score their very own Beanbag Table in Pink, Blue or Green!
