Don't you want free stuff?

There doesn't seem to be many entries on the giveaway - I think this might be a combination of people not being sure if they want to continue it on, and maybe because I haven't posted any pictures of the mystery loot.
Just because It's my first giveaway I wanted to try and get a few more people interested so I've decided to extend the date so people can still enter over the weekend and ill announce the winner on Monday - I hope you guys don't mind?

I was gong to try to post some picture, but the data cap had been exceeded and the computer is being exceedingly difficult with everything I try to do - this post was a mission!
But I'll just let you know again that it will include thrifted clothing, some little little knitted stuff in there, accessories (some neat handmade stuff not by me but the lovely Lauren). I've just added the most awesome chiffony type headband too. So there should be a little something for everyone.

So two more days to enter people - for the rules and to enter please check out this post.
After all this is done I promise some real content and photos, but the broadband has been all used up (not by me) and until the 25th my Internet is crawling by at a snails pace. So I also haven't managed to keep up with a lot of your blogs as well unless I'm at uni, while I'm really supposed to be working....
Anyway hop to it and enter the giveaway!

GIVEAWAY that's right I said GIVEAWAY

Recently I was the of winner a giveaway from Lauren at This Little Piggie Went to Market which included many a lovely thing, including some of her handmade goodies.

This wasn't just any giveaway though this is a very special giveaway, it is a pass the parcel giveaway that was started by Vicci at She Will Have Her Way here and then continued on by Lauren here.

The idea of the giveaway is that the winner gets the parcel, takes out what they like/what fits/what's shiny etc and then adds to whatever is left and passes the parcel on as their own giveaway. So it is a bit of a pay it forward giveaway, I thought it was the most brilliant idea, and was so happy to be part of it, and now you can too!

So just to clarify the rules
  • To enter just comment on this post telling me you would like to be a part
  • The winner gets to select from the giveaway parcel what they like
  • The winner then adds to the parcel - whatever takes your fancy
  • The winner then hosts the giveaway.
Now I don't want to exclude people who don't have blogs from the giveaway I would really like to keep this going, so what I might do is, if someone who doesn't have a blog wins the parcel I might draw another name and make two parcels.

In the spirit of pass the parcel I've decided to to be explicit about what it's the parcel (because in the game it's a surprise! also It's not quite finished yet...), but I will give you a little bit of an idea of what the winner will be getting. The parcel includes some thrifted items of clothes - very fabulous but didn't fit me unfortunately, some lovely handmade items from Lauren - because I felt greedy taking all of them, I have added some more thirfted items of clothing and also some jewelery and accessories - all very neato! There will also be some surprises that I will pick up this weekend. I took into account some of your suggestions on my post asking what I want so hopefully I done good. I might included some pictures later if I feel kind, but think of the surprise people, the surprise!!

I'm going to hold the giveaway for 1 week - so entries will close next Friday *EDIT* ENTRIES NOW CLOSE SUNDAY AND I WILL ANNOUNCE THE WINNER ON MONDAY New Zealand time, which I think is Thursday for the rest of the world. So what are you waiting for - enter!

Some things are so special

Nothing beats getting something in the mail. Nothing is better than a sweet sentiment and knowing that something you've said has made someone feel better.

This reminds me that I should be grateful for all the amazing people in my life - and that most importantly I should tell them.

You Bambola are amazing - thank you so much.





P.S if you haven't checked out her blog - go! she is too fabulous for words and so genuine you will love her.

Tell me what you want

Thanks for all the lovely comments on the post below - the were so sweet, learning to take compliments here!

I'm going to announce a special giveaway soon, that will be a parcel of goodies giveaways, but I'll reveal the details later on the actual post as it is a very special give away indeed. I'm still putting the parcel together so I thought I would would put some feelers out and ask people what they would like in a parcel of thrifted clothes/accessories among other things. Just so I can get a feel of what to look out for.

I will probably announce the giveaway the end of this week or the beginning of next week so let me know soon!
