A Bit of This and A Bit of That....and a lovely Giveaway!!


Isn't this the most gorgeous image? (I blame the super-hot weather in London right now for putting me in summer hols mode!) I'm dedicating this image to my lovely friend Melissa over here....not sure if it's Greece or not but those bright colours and that beautifully blue sky are sure making me think of it!

I have received a couple of lovely awards this last week....
...thank you to the lovely Trish at Pink Preppy Lilly Lover
for this....

....and to Liz at Le Passion For Fashion
for....

 

I have to tell you seven things about myself, that I haven't already shared....I shall give it some thought and share and also pass these awards on next week  :)

My newest blog advertisers are the lovely people at All Tea Towels. I did a feature on them and a Giveaway with them earlier this year which was a lot of fun....I will be featuring some of their lovely linens and other items next week. Do take a look for yourself though....
a huge variety of designs, great quality, international shipping (and free UK delivery) and excellent customer service....

In the meantime....my latest Giveaway will be one of their lovely strawberry print aprons....

...perfect for this Wimbledon fortnight!

I am also giving away one of these gorgeous notebooks from Mimi Charmante ....


....plus a couple of other summery items that I think you may like!
To win, you just need to follow my blog and just leave me a comment....I will draw the winner this Friday July 2....good luck!

And finally....


....over fifteen years ago, I left a very good job in London to go to work in the US for nine months over the summer....the job I left is actually still the best paid job I have ever had! Looking back sometimes I am amazed that I took that step....but it was 100% one of the best things I ever did....I knew at the time that if I didn't do it then, I never would - and I was right. It was the first time I had ever flown alone, my first time in the US and the first time I had ever been away alone and that far away for that long. It was a huge learning curve but I had a fabulous time, grew so much and my confidence soared....plus I got to live in NYC for a few months....it was one of the best decisions I ever made, I was a changed person when I returned.

I didn't really have any responsibilities then....no children or mortgage or relationship....so in some ways it was easier to go....but I can still remember my Dad watching me walk down to the departure lounge and knowing that it was some kind of turning point in my life....

....sometimes you just have to ask yourself what's the worst that can happen and just do it....


Happy Wednesday!
