Hello Everyone, what an exciting post this is because I’m combining some fabulous Giveaways but in the aid of a great cause … #Frocktober2015. Yep, it’s Giveaways for the month of Frocktober right up until 31st October, 2015 – in support of cancer research.
Some of you might have heard of Frocktober? It’s in aid of ovarian cancer research and I’m hoping to raise $700 for the cause. What I’m meant to do is wear a dress every day, that’s 31 dresses for October, but I’ll be travelling and in all honesty that’s just not going to happen. So who better to make famous than some of you lovely Lifestylers?
So here’s the deal.
To be in with a chance to win one of the cool Spring Giveaway items below, you need to comment on this post. If you would like to (not compulsory) email me a pic of you in a frock ( (to jo at jocastro dot com) and I’ll include you in my Frocktober happenings in a post on the Blog. It would be so awesome if you’d get involved. There are more details at the bottom of this post.
But for now … what could you win? There are 12 Prizes, split up as follows …
Running short of beauty products? Have you heard of David Deans?
Margaret Deans says that women can age gracefully and beautifully without undergoing invasive procedures. After thirty years working as a beautician and aesthetician, Margaret believes in the ‘science of elegance’, and in collaboration with her father David, a comounding chemist and her two scientist daughters Margaret developed the collection of David Deans Premium Skin Care products.
There are 4 gifts here … You could win 1 or 2 two Review Packs containing an antioxidant oatmeal mask, bamboo pearl exfoliant, moisturising cleansing lotion and daily essence moisturiser. Or the Radiation Burn Cream ($49.95) which is for the prevention and management of radiation therapy induced skin reactions and minor burns, or the Hydrating Soothing Cream ($49.95) for hydration and calming of skin irritations, sunburn, eczema and dry skin.
Win a Romantic Movie
Anyone up for a bit of R and R, glass of wine and a romantic movie? I have 3, “Jackie & Ryans” to giveaway courtesy of Defiant Screen Entertainment. It’s a love story. A modern-day drifter puts his dreams of becoming a successful musician on hold when he falls for a former country singer fighting for custody of her daughter. At a crossroads in their lives, a chance meeting will give them the courage to find a new path and change their lives forever. Starring Katherine Heigl, Ben Barnes and CleaDuVall.

A Collector’s Book
Watermark Publishing has recently published a beautiful coffee table book entitled ‘Just what the doctor ordered’ – A guide to the Australian idiom. I love it. It’s full of amusing pictures and funny words, with colloquial reference – a dose of Australiana. It’s a boxed collector’s piece including 170 pictures by outback artist Howard Steer and a thousand humorous Australian sayings, or idiom, compiled by Peter Nicholson. The RRP is AUD$65 and it’s been featured on the Today Show and on ABC RAdio 891. If you’re a book lover, like me, this is one for your collection.

Good Luck Everyone, and Thank Your for supporting #Frocktober2015 which raises funds and awareness for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. One woman dies every ten hours from ovarian cancer. There is currently no early detection test. Women are usually diagnosed in the late stages of the disease – when the cancer has spread to other organs in the body. By raising awareness we can help fight cancer.
Alternatively if you don’t want to enter the giveaway, please consider donating a small amount to my Everyday Hero page for Ovarian Cancer here: Donate Frocktober (no amount is too small).
This competition is now closed: Emails have been sent to the winners. Well done, Cheryl, Lesley, Janet, Em, Kathy, Karen, Beth, Bernadette, Jan and Emily and thank you for taking part!
