Win! A Filofax organiser with built-in beauty treats


This time of year is all about planning ahead and getting organised - so we've got a prize here that should keep you looking smart and in complete control during 2010 and beyond. The Filofax Beauty Giftbox is your ultimate ally in turning over a new leaf, not only due to its super-efficient layout and classic yuppie-chic looks, but thanks to its exciting and shamelessly girly contents too.

Hidden beneath that businesslike exterior are a compact mirror (perfect for those public transport emergency mascara moments), an atomiser pen to fill with the perfume of your choice and a beauty voucher you can redeem for a hair or beauty treatment worth £100.

How to enter


Before we pick a winner, we want you to comment below, telling us all about your new year's resolution(s) for 2010. We'd love to hear what you plan to do more of, drink less of or make the time for in the new year...just don't go making us feel too guilty, now!

Winners will be selected at random, and you'll get one bonus entry for retweeting this post. And don't forget, if you're looking for more goodies to win, you've still got time to donate to Shelter and win some of our Christmas prizes too. We'll announce all of the winners on Friday.

The small print: The competition will close at midday on 8th January 2010. The winner must live in the UK as well, sorry overseas readers, but them's the breaks. You must also leave a name as well to make sure we know who you are! Domestic Slut may not enter (although we so wish we could!)

  1. I intend to spend a lot more of 2010 making stuff! I have a yarn stash that is attempting to take over the world and the burgeoning start of a fabric stash and as such, one of my resolutions this year is to make more stuff from the materials I already own!

  2. Stop letting anxiety hold me back and live life to the fullest! (and eat 5 portions of fruit/veg, a litre and half of water a day and cut back on reality tv.. flying pig!)

  3. oh what a lovely prize. My new years resolution is to take off my make up every night! No matter how tired (or drunk) I am.

  4. This sounds like an ideal prize for a NY draw! It combines 2 of my major resolutions this year. Last year I spent so much time building my business that I neglected me (a lot!). So along with some others, 2 of my resolutions this year are, 1 organise my time more efficiently, deciding when to stop work & sticking to it (I know it won't be possible ALL the time but ..) 2 make some time for me & pamper myself more!

    Finger crossed for me winning!!

  7. I *love* this organiser!

    Like most freelancers, I want to get more efficient and organised, so I can get a bit more of a work/life balance. So that's my NY resolution!

    Also, I want to step away from the microwave and actually *gasp* cook from scratch more.

  20. I am giving up Booze and Bread because I have become festively plump! I am aiming to loose weight because I am going travelling in March for 3 1/2 months with my boy, and there is no way anyone wants to see this in a Bikini. Really need to get organized too as I need to plan Jabs/Visas/Currency?/Moving out...arghh very exciting!!

    RT @Parrface

  23. I'm determined to cut down on the choccie this year - I'm a self-confessed chocaholic & it's the main reason I've put on so much weight.

    ReplyDelete
  24. This year, I am going to make some realistic resolutions - so giving up wine is out of the question! However, I am going to try and live healthier by swimming twice a week and limiting my chocolate intake to one treat size chocolate bar rather than three.

    I am also going to write a book...

    RT @cocktailpr

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm going to lose the weight I put on last year, take much better care of my skin and try my hardest to get back to work after 8 years at home bringing up my two boys, oh and I might try and keep on top of the ironing!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. My plan for 2010 is to sort out my kids' sleeping problems - I haven't had much sleep for the last 3 years and is causing major problems for all the family now! That, and to be more organised and creative...

    ReplyDelete
  27. My new year's resolutions are to eat breakfast every morning, take my make up off every night before bed & to keep a list of every book I read this year (as I am such a fast reader I always forget what I've read a few months later!).

    ReplyDelete
  28. WOW, amazing prize thanks!
    my resolution is to control my road rage - its starting to worry my kids, so i'll be working really hard to control it!

    I also intend to get involved with at least one volunatry project and have already applied to do some mentoring with young people.

    ReplyDelete
  34. What a nice bundle! My intention this year is to incorporate BALANCE into my life - less is more, and all that. I have a tendency to put all my energies into one thing at a time, and I really need to even it all out. Plus eat a more balanced diet and drink less. And be more organised, so this would be perfect :)
    Will retweet as requested!

    ReplyDelete
  35. My new year resolutions will be...
    * To be more creative, I plan to make at least
    2-3 new things a week and finish old projects.

    * To be more social and to keep in contact with people I like.

    * To make more of an effort.
    Use more makeup, work on vintage hair styles, experiment with eye shadows and such.
    I should also start wearing my vintage clothes a
    bit more often.

  36. For many years I’ve not bothered with NY resolutions – I usually say (if asked) that I’m giving up smoking (having never smoked), as it’s a guaranteed resolution success. This year action is needed: for too long I’ve been fed up and frustrated at work and really I know I need to be my own boss. So, I’m looking into business courses with a view to starting up on my own and fulfilling my dream to move back home to the south west. I think I might need the filofax to help organise this!! Happy New Year to all at DomSluttery HQ xxx

  39. My new years resolution is to try and cut myself as much slack as I do everyone else, as my health isn't so good and I need to accept that getting cross about not being able to be perfection at everything isn't helping!

    Happy New Year by the way - so lovely to have you back, a little ray of sunshine in the grey return to work!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I intend to enjoy life more and not get bogged down with the routine. Happy New Year Xx

    ReplyDelete
  41. Not so much a resolution but a completely new experience for me - I will becoming a new mum! So I am hoping I can be the best mum I can be for my newborn come April. Am very excited but also quite scared at times!

    ReplyDelete
  42. To start living my life for me a bit more, instead of trying to please everyone else and making myself miserable. Slightly weird resolution then, but it's to be a bit more selfish!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Do more yoga, spend more time with family and friends. Enjoy my free time more!

    ReplyDelete
  44. This is such a perfect prize.
    My new year resolution nr one is to finish my book, nr two - continue Wii-ng everyday - I got Wii Fit Plus in my stocking, and love it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. My resolutions are; to keep myself looking and feeling good, by going to the gym and by dressing in a way which makes me smile, rather than just pulling on whatever's clean and convenient; to achieve things, both on my PhD (which I just started three months ago) and for myself, by doing some work on my novel (I've four or five chapters in but haven't written anything for ages), trying new recipes, and being open to new experiences; and to work on relationships with friends (I moved to a new town to start my PhD, so I want to make sure I keep in close touch with the friends I left behind, and meet new people here).

    ReplyDelete
  46. Resolutions:

    1) Lose weight

  48. Get off the computer, do at least one GOOD picture a day and post it, 3 big knitting projects, and to bake more vegan wheat free stuff. So, yeah, not much :-D

    ReplyDelete
  49. This year is one of two halves for me - the first half is all about getting fit and thinner so I can complete the Moonwalk in a good time and in good health in May. The second half is about family planning - going to pull out all the stops to get pregnant this year as I am not getting any younger. Also going to do more knitting, sewing and make good use of my sugar thermometer. Really optimistic about 2010 so jumping in with both feet.

    ReplyDelete
  50. This year is going to be a big one for me - I finally start my cake business full time after taking redundancy from the full time job at Christmas. So my resolution is to give it my all and really try and make a splash in the cake world of Nottingham! Wish me luck x

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wow, perfect new years prize!

    My resolutions are less takeaways, more cocktails, and complete the Guardian cryptic crossword every Monday (the easiest one of the week!)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Resolutions:
    Carry on losing weight. I was 17 stone, am now 16 stone.
    Ride a red route on my mountain bike. I'm currently on sort of red routes which really aren't. Need to learn to drop and jump properly.
    Go up a grade in rock climbing from 4 to 4a.
    Go for a 30 min walk every other evening.
    Volunteer for more stuff. I've already volunteered to be a mountain bike race marshal and to be on a festival fan forum representing green issues. I want to stop complaining and start trying to make a difference somewhere, no matter how small.

  53. My resolutions for 2010 are to take my self-image related depression in hand and change my life, starting from creating a healthy core, to developing a polished surface. And then, once the overhaul is complete, I'm going to change my career and my life, by re-training in a worthwhile career, rather than working for a series of corporate machines.

    It's all doable. I'm ready for the challenge.

    ReplyDelete
  54. 2010 for me is all about having fun and getting into crafts. 2009 was too much of a dull and low year so I'm determined to make 2010 mine! I've decided to get back on the yoga regime, sign up for some burlesque classes and try my hand at some knitting and crocheting. I also need to make more friends in London so I'm not stuck at home all the time, and that Filofax looks like the perfect way to get my resolutions in gear ;)

    ReplyDelete
  55. My resolution is to get things done and not put things off or forget about them, an organiser might just help!

  56. Elizabeth Burton4 January 2010 at 11:09

    I have not bothered with the obvious - give up smoking, drink less, watch what I eat...boring and unrealistic! Instead, I resolve to have more 'me time'. My 2 year old daughter is my world, and I've kinda forgotten who I am! That needs fixing. Would love this organiser to plan my new action packed life in :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm going to find the surface of my desk, and keep it visible - without just transferring everything onto the floor!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  60. This year is is going to be the year of change...
    1) I'm going to lose all the weight I put on when I went to uni by cutting out all the take aways and especially bread!!
    2) I've been engaged for a year now so I'm going to start doing some really hard saving and start planning (for which that gorgeous organizer would be perfect!!)
    3) I'm going to start believing in myself. I don't do it anywhere near as much as I should and it's important for us girlies to take care of ourselves!!
    4) I'm always saying I want to be more creative so I want to start making my own clothes, and also make a couple of blankets for my gorgeous baby cousins!

    And as always lastly to enjoy life to the fullest!!

  65. Oooh what a lovely prize!

    Well I'm planning to

    1) Always go for a walk at lunchtime to get some fresh air and excercise
    2) Stop reading gossip websites which just rot my brain and start reading more interesting things on the net
    3) To make more use of living in Lovely London Town by finding out the fab things going on here

    :-)

    ReplyDelete
  66. The traditional one: To lose weight. The BF and I stuffed ourselves over Christmas. Oops! To make it more fun, we've made it competitive - the one who loses the most each week gets to offload one of their household chores on the other.

    Now, a more fun one: I plan to go back into education. OK, that might not SOUND fun to most people, but I have resolved to make 2010 the beginning of the rest of my life. Cheesey, yes, but there we are!!

    Had a pretty crummy year last year, but we've resolved this year to "not be at home to Mr Bad-luck" :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Declutter some more so I cn get down to the more interesting stuff and to get to do that ...... stop procrastinating!!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. To take the dog for a proper walk every day regardless of the weather or how tired I am - she deserves it and I need it for the flab :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. My New Years resolutions are to do things NOW not LATER and to grow up because I'm thinking of dropping out of university and quite frankly the idea terrifies me. I will have to jump head first into the real world after being wrapped in cotton wool for so long. Eep!
    Kayleigh, Glasgow.

  70. I'm planning on making myself financially independent by opening my own photography business, daunting but with time and effort I’ll get there!!!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I will not bore my boss by with the same excuse for taking leave. I will think of some more excuses.

    ReplyDelete
  80. 2010 is "Operation: Get New Job". One that will allow me to continue the life I've become used to (though hopefully a little less broke) and not involve being on-call with the net result of having more time to be a complete Domestic Slut.

    ReplyDelete
  81. My New Years Resolution is to be tidy, and stay tidy! My lovely boyfriend has put up with my slovenly ways for long enough, and I fear that soon he’ll kick me out for a younger, slimmer and much more organised model! Right so where’s my duster…?

    ReplyDelete
  82. I'm all about having new experiences so this year I shall be spending at least a month travelling. I shall also be changing career and moving abroad in the summer. :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. My New Years Resolution, to make more time to see my friends ~ life is too short!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I plan on spending more quality time with my children and not my laptop! Ironic really that I'm on here now

    ReplyDelete
  85. My main resolution this year is to stop making an effort with people who obviously don't care about me or my opinions. I have a large band of acquaintances who I would consider more of a friend than that, but who just don't see me the same way. It upsets me when I make an effort and they can't even be bothered to shrug me off! So no more! I can take the hint, and I'd rather make efforts in other directions :)

    Secondly, this IS the year that I lose some weight and tone up. I'm fed up with wearing jeans in the summer and trawling the shops for below-knee length dresses in the winter. I don't have a great amount to change, but this year I will learn to say no to snacks and yes to exercise.

    Clothes, tidyness and my pit of a bedroom come third. I have a wardrobe full of things I don't wear, so there's no room for the things I do. It's a mess and I won't do it any more! Sunday is my next free day so I'll be organising, readying bags for charity and ebay and enjoying a tidy and decluttered room for the first time in months.

    Happy new year!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Everyone is getting knocked up!
    Four of my wonderful friends are having babies this year with the first Baby Shower starting in February. Below is the centre piece for the first quilt.

    My resolution is to make them all patchwork quilts. It's taken me over two months to get the first one near completion so I better pick up the pace before they drop.

    Being that they all love in different cities I could sure use a new filofax to help me stay organised on my travels round the country!

  87. I am going to say no to other people and yes to myself more often, I have realised that I've been spreading myself far too thin. Even better, my best friend is getting married next year and I have resolved to properly learn to decorate wedding cakes so I can make hers!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I never win your competitions...that's my resolution. To win a Domestic Sluttery competition before the end of the year. Only YOU can make it come true now (and i'd rather like it to be this one as i need a filofax for keeping my life organised and things)

    RT hours ago now @Liz_Sara

  96. I'm trying to give up soft drinks. Its really hard :(

    ReplyDelete
  97. I intend to spend the New Year not covered in babysick, actually looking in the mirror before I leave the house and getting dressed before noon. Perhaps it's a bit of a stretch to expect that I might get to have lunch every day and actually get some housework done but why not aim high!

    ReplyDelete
  98. 2010 is a new year and the beginning on of a new life for me. Recently divorced and a new homeowner, my resolution is simply to live strong and enjoy each new day. No looking back. I hope to passionately embrace the future, no matter what.

    ReplyDelete
  99. My new year resolution is to wear less black to work. I think its part of what depresses me so much about my working day. I'm also going to take lots of healthy snacks to the office so when those bored/angry/stress munchies, I don't hit the chocolate first. Oh and get a new job -that will get rid of both problems.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I have all of the usual ones (try to get fitter, try to be a better mummy etc) but the one i am looking forward to most is 'to have fresh flowers in the house every day of the year'

    whether they are flowers i have grown, picked or bought, i am going to have flowers in my house because flowers always cheer me up and make my house look more pretty

    ReplyDelete
  101. Ok.

    1. I'm going to learn how to drive - I was meant to get that done in 2009!
    2. drop a dress size to fit into a bridesmaid dress for a wedding at the end of May (i dropped 2 dress sizes in 2009!)
    3. learn how to quilt to sew up a wedding quilt for the wedding above (using material from the wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, her mother's and sister's dresses).
    4. try not to get addicted to the wii I got for Christmas!!

    good luck everyone else (with their new years resolutions, not the competition!) Esther

    but on reflection, it might be best to aim a bit lower and:
    1. chill out and stop shouting so much
    2. stop devouring an entire 100g bar of chocolate every time I plan to have just a few squares
    3. ring my mum and dad for a proper chat at least once a week
    4. help out my little garden visitors by putting up a bird feeder and remembering to refill it all year long.

  149. I resolve to stop procrastinating... erm, quite so much! I resolve to be braver, to say the things I want to say and do the things I know I can and not to worry about the rest.

    Life is too short. I found that out last year. 2010 will hopefully see me being more organised!

    Last year I stopped smoking - haven't had a cigarette for 9 months, now. I'm really proud of that. I need to loose a bit of weight, I need to do all sorts of things, but I'm not going to beat myself up about it. I'm sick of doing that.

    I say we should all eat cupcakes and have a G&T and look back at the things we are already proud of, too! :)

  163. I have a lot to achieve this year, so my New Year's resolutions include: losing weight before getting married in May, not crying during the wedding (I'm like that girl in Four Weddings and A Funeral who says "I love you, I don't know who you are but I love you" when I've had a few so Heaven help me during the ceremony. Waterproof mascara is required!), trying not to take things so personally and letting more water run off this duck's back, finding a new job that doesn't stress me out or keep me from making it to evening engagements on time and continuing an old resolution of using up my change instead of letting it gather dust in a big jar that then weighs a tonne when I finally take it to the bank. Finally, I want to find that inner calm that somewhere I lost along the road to adulthood. Meditation, perhaps?
    Happy New Year to everyone! And keep up the good work. These competitions really make you think. For the first time all my resolutions are in one place.
