Back in June I spotted a post Dannii Minogue made on her Tumblr account about a 25 year anniversary competition celebrating the release of her debut single ‘Love & Kisses’. She was asking fans to either make a video or take an image inspired by Love & Kisses. You simply had to upload your creation to Instagram, tag Dannii and include the hashtag #Disco25.
For my entry I decided to upload a video of me singing Love & Kisses. I was pretty nervous as I’ve never uploaded a video of myself before but thankfully it paid off. I took inspiration from Dannii’s style in the Love & Kisses video for my outfit and makeup. I wore a black jacket and went for a red lip and fresh faced look.

*I hardly ever wear eyeliner and I spent so long trying to get it perfect that after applying it and cleaning it up numerous times my eyes had enough product on from doing that.
My winning entry!
Dannii liked my video and commented on it to notify me I had won. I had no idea what the prize was but I was incredibly shocked and happy to be chosen.
Last Wednesday I came home from work to a package from Australia. I couldn’t contain my excitement and opened it straight away. Inside was a Love & Kisses vinyl record made out to me as well as a card with a personalised handwritten message. The card from Dannii was such a beautiful touch and this prize is something I’ll treasure forever!
