One year ago today, Mama of 2 boys was born. 8 posts penned in the first week and not another word written for the next 9 weeks. Probably a good thing, as those early posts are quite
cringeworthy different to the posts since I resumed blogging regularly in January this year. But for me, that is what my blog is all about... evolution. I kicked it off at a time when I desperately needed to express my thoughts, feed my hunger for writing and most importantly, begin recording a keepsake for my two wild and wonderful boys.
As is the case with so many ventures in life, I had no idea I would discover the world I did. Blogging has opened my eyes to a galaxy of beautiful, funny, intelligent, kind, caring, clever, talented women. All I can feel is privileged to be a part of it all. Not only do I have a space where my ramblings and precious memories can reside, I also have an incredible collection of individuals, who seem to understand where I'm coming from. After all, so many of you have been there or are there or plan to go there someday. You have enriched and inspired me.
On that note, I would like to offer up my first ever giveaway. The blogging world is such a generous one and this is something I have looked forward to doing for a long time. But thought the 1st anniversary would be a good time to start. So I have 3 packs, each represents a bundle of things that I love. What better way to show my gratitude to you lovely followers out there, for your support and friendship.
Pack 1 - Heart of the home: I do enjoy baking a tasty sweet treat. So this bunch contains all things kitchen. A set of babushka nesting cups (which just so happen to also be measuring cups)... too cute; A heart shaped set of 3 sauce and dip bowls in basic white porcelain... I like these treasures very much; A floral print cooking apron... so pretty! And of course... a Women's Weekly 'delicious desserts' cookbook... some ridiculously delicious recipes in this one, 70 of them in fact!
Pack 2 - For the love of stationery: I've always been a stationery hoarder, simply cannot. have. enough. So this lot delivers a Kikki K black cube note pad, with a Kikki K white pen for doodling... very groovy; A Typo stamp set... because stamps are so much fun (hopefully that's not just my opinion!?); And a Typo note book and spotty pen... I adore red, black and white... together or alone, but this notebook and pen satisfies on all counts.
Pack 3 - Have fun and relax: I think this collection might just be my personal favourite. Filled with items that make me feel good. A pack of 2 Kikki K candles... lime blossom & lime coconut... lovely! More coconut, in the form of an Evodia fragrance roll-on... I LOVE coconut scented anything and it reminds me of the freshness of the beach... double bonus; iTunes $20 gift card... I am a music lover and a self confessed iTunes addict... couldn't help but share that joy around; Summer scarf in what looks like red and white, but is actually coral and white... I'm a big fan of the scarf; And a cheeky red, card holder... purely because I thought it was rather nice, I bought one for myself and I believe you can never have too many purses, wallets or cardholders in the rotation.
I really gained much enjoyment in finding these bits and pieces to put together for you delightful followers out there and I'm very excited to be running this little thank you giveaway. Just a few Terms and Conditions:
