Thank You And A Giveaway Heads Up x

Today is a good day x Okay in parts it hasn't been, but today I hit 400 Bloglovin followers. It might not seem a lot to some people but for me it's a bit of a milestone.

Way back when, when I started blogging the only way to follow a blog was to bookmark it or save it in your favourites. How times have changed, I'm still quite loyal to GFC (Google Friend Connect for you newbies out there) and as a result it took me a while to actually claim my blog and get myself a bloglovin account. It hasn't been without it's problems a lot of people still seem to have followed my actual personal account rather than my blog. It doesn't matter to me how people follow - I love you anyway :) but this is the digital age and stats matter so if you do follow please can you make sure that you follow my blog here and not my personal account which you can find here x

This year I've been a bit meh when it comes to my blog, my health hasn't been the best and as it should do, my blogs taken a back seat. I guess that's why I'm so pleased that so many of you still seem to have faith in me and my blog and you've stuck with me regardless, it makes me want to kick my stupid body in to touch and blog my weary little heart out.

I'm being a bit gushy and sentimental here but what I'm trying to say is thank you for being there x I have a few issues with the term blogging community at times but without it I wouldn't be the person I am today. I've met so many lovely people both online and in the flesh, and I've had the most amazing experiences and opportunities all because of blogging.

So how to say thank you -well I'd love to give you all a huge hug and a cupcake but that's not really very practical so I guess a giveaway is the only way. I know a lot of people say that giveaways don't necessarily reward long term followers and whilst I agree with that it's the only thing that I can think of. I'm aiming to have my giveaway live next weekend as I'm still waiting for some of my prizes to arrive. So over the next week I'm going to give you a few sneaky peaks of what you can win. Everyday on my Facebook, twitter and instagram I'm going to show you one item from the prize package - so make sure your following x

Thank you so much for your support x and I can assure you that normal less gushy posting will resume tomorrow with a yummy recipe, followed by a product rave and a review over the weekend xx Thanks for reading x


  1. Well done, it's a shame GFC kinda disappeared as we all had to start again really with followers. I use bloglovin all the time, my GFC never really works as a reader so I like to stay up to date on bloglovin :) congrats on reaching 400 I've been reading your blog for a few years now! x

    1. Aww thanks lovely x Yeah it's a pain for followers and for bloggers we all pretty much had to start again xx

  2. Congrats on the 400 Bloglovin' readers. That's really good! x x

  3. Congrats for the milestone!! ;)


I love hearing what you have to say so leave me a comment and let me know your thought x My comments are moderated at the moment but that means that I read every single one of them so don't be shy, have your say x
