Happy Birthday to Me and a Giveaway for You (CLOSED)

** This giveaway is now closed **

I am totally thirty today. Happy Birthday to me! I am not sure what I will be doing, but hopefully it will be something good. To celebrate I have a lovely giveaway for you guys to say thank you for your support. Thank you for reading my words, being part of my community and making me feel so much less lonely and strange.


Disney, Peter Pan, Disney's Peter Pan, Peter Pan Blu Ray giveaway

For everyone who never wanted to grow up, but did anyway (hello), the classic tale of Peter Pan is perfect and  thanks to our friends at Disney we have 3 copies of Peter Pan on Blu-Ray/DVD to giveaway to celebrate the June 5th Blu-ray and DVD release, . It seemed fitting, given that it’s being released the actual day of my birthday and I am feeling a little like I want to ‘get back to childhood’.

necklace giveaway, bracelet giveaway,

Recently, I walked past a gorgeous stall at our local markets and I stopped to say hi and take a business card because the jewelery on show was divine, not to mention the amazing photographic prints on display. If you’re a regular reader, you will know that this moment was a big deal for me, generally I just walk on by, admiring with maybe a nod of acknowledgement.  But, what I saw spoke to me and pulled me in such a way, that I had to break away from my social phobia. I have since been in touch with the lovely Dannelle of Pebble + Nest and she has offered a gorgeous ring and necklace from the “Falling” – the Winter collection for one lucky reader.

 Feel free to buy me some, too;
