Giveaway Goodies!

My goodness, I have been overwhelmed by giveaway prizes recently! It tends to go in phases when I win quite a few in one go, then don’t win any for ages…recently I have been pretty lucky when it comes to random draws! Isn’t that the fun of giveaways??? I wanted to take this chance to share with you some of the wonderful gifts that I have won.

The first giveaway was from Azura Chan, in partnership with her friend Ain. To celebrate her birthday, she was giving away a ‘Jar of Love,’ that I was lucky enough to win.

How adorable is this little jar? I can certainly see that there has been a lot of love put into decorating it!

Canvas Design Giveaway Winner!

Firstly, I would like to thank everyone who entered my giveaway! There was such an overwhelming response! I had 49 entries in total! So good luck to everyone who entered.

And a reminder the prize; your photo on a canvas by Canvas Design!

To enter you had to follow my blog, and leave me a comment saying what you would like on your canvas. Unfortunately the giveaway was only open to UK residents.

To pick my winner, I numbered each of the comments 1 to 49 (excluding my replies and comments from international readers.) This left me with 49 unique entries, which I entered into a random number generator.

Now Closed – Canvas Design Review and Giveaway

Edit 1

Since James and I are planning on moving in a few months time, I have been collecting house items. Most of them have been essentials, such as kitchen items, which aren’t that thrilling! We haven’t been able to pick too many items for decorating yet, partly because we can’t afford it but also because we haven’t found a house yet so we don’t know what colours etc. we will need. However, when Canvas Design offered me the chance to review one of their canvases, I couldn’t resist!  Continue reading

A Bit of Girl Power and a Global Giveaway!

I’ll admit, when I first started my blog back in April, I didn’t actually know what a blog was. It seems bizarre now I know but it’s true. All I knew was that my boyfriend had a blog and he thought that I should have one too. Looking back, I’m incredibly grateful that he set one up for me and, although there have been a few kinks to iron out, I finally feel like I am finding my feet in blogging. Continue reading
