1st Blog Birthday Giveaway!!!!

Wednesday, 13 March 2013

Today is my blog's first birthday! For a whole year (with a couple of breaks in between) I have been a part of a world I never knew existed until a year and a month ago! As much as I enjoy blogging, at times it can have it's low points too, where I've struggled to find time, motivation or inspiration, but I am glad I persevered as my little part of the web makes me happy.

In celebration of this momentous (momentous for me, maybe not for you guys!) occasion, I felt it was only fitting to say a big fat THANK YOU to you for the support over the last year. I have got to know some lovely people through this blog, some of whom I look forward to meeting this year, and I want to give something back to those of you who have given me a little smile each day with a comment or a tweet, a follow or an email!

So less of the mushy stuff and on with the prizes!! I'd also like to say a big thank you to the three lovely bloggers, courtesy of the UK Bloggers Facebook group, who have generously donated extra prizes to my giveaway! Thank you lovely ladies!
