I am delighted to announce that high-street giants, Next, have asked Glitz & Grime to host a major competition for them.
We're giving you the chance to blog your way to £500 worth of Next vouchers... that's £500! A whole new summer wardrobe.

With that in mind we'd like you to create a blog post featuring some of Next's amazing summer collection (here) showcasing your individual style and what you'll be rocking this summer.
Be sure to link to your favourite Next products!

Then just leave a comment with your name, email, blog name and a link to the post.
The competition closes at 12pm on the 24th May.
The winner will be chosen by myself based on the originality of their blog post and their social media promotion of their entry.

So... what are you waiting for?! Good Luck!!

There are also some badges for you to use after the jump, just display them in your sidebar and link back to this post!

Talia_Jayne said...

I officially suck at mood boards but here's my outfit...x

Sheree Milli said...

Be creative! It doesn't have to be a full outfit, it can be several items along a certain theme or just shoes if you're a shoe lover.
Or just one item and how you would style it.... anything goes!

Hi, here's my entry! This competition is amazing!!! 2012 is a huge year for Britain, so my post is inspired by London. I've chosen a dress that can have multiple looks if styled differently, which reflects London's various personalities!
