Celebrating 5K – Instagram Giveaway

Instagram is fast becoming my favourite social media platform. In fact scrap that, I’m totally addicted to scrolling through other people’s pretty pictures and endlessly watching Instagram Stories when I really should be going to sleep. Recently I reached 5,000 followers over on my Instagram page and I wanted to host a little giveaway to say thank you for your support and love. It means the world to me receiving such lovely comments so I’m collaborating with some of my favourite brands to bring you a pretty amazing giveaway.

So without further ado, here are the brilliant brands who have kindly collaborated with us on this giveaway. They are all brands that I love and I am absolutely delighted to be working with them!

Don’t Buy Her Flowers

I’ve been a huge fan of Steph’s thoughtful packages for a long time and it is becoming my ‘go-to’ place to buy gifts for people in my live who deserve a little pampering. We have an Any Occasion hamper up for grabs with the option of adding gin, wine or champagne to the hamper once the winner is drawn. I’m so excited about this prize, such a brilliant way to treat yourself or someone special!

Cafe of Curiosities

Over the past few months, I’ve spotted Cafe of Curiosities‘ mugs on Instagram and absolutely loved them. The one that caught my eye says ‘I Have No Idea What I’m F**n Doing’, which pretty much sums me up! I’m also a mugaholic and seem to be collecting them…so delighted than Bethanie and Lucy have kindly offered a mug and tote bag for a prize.

Lily and Fred

I’m always a supporter of independent clothing shops for Emma and Lily and Fred‘s website is just gorgeous. They stock all my favourite brands – as I’m always on the lookout for unique clothes for Emma. We’re so lucky to have an Organic Zoo vest and leggings to giveaway, in sizes from 0-12 months. Thanks so much, we’re huge fans of the brand!

Bear Freds

Who else has gone slightly unicorn mad? Yep us over here too! I was so pleased when Emma got a few unicorn themed t-shirts for her birthday and I’m excited to bring you Bear Freds, a brilliant t-shirt company. We have a ‘Be A Unicorn’ ladies t-shirt up for grabs for one lucky winner.

The Paperdashery

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know what a stationery addict I am. Pretty notebooks to pens to post-its to remind myself what I need to do that day amidst my procrastination. Stationery had to be a part of this giveaway and we’ve got a very pretty notebook for one winner. I love The Paperdashery too and it’s well worth a little look if you love the prettiness too.

Rocky Rice Cake Bars

Well it wouldn’t be a true reflection of me if this giveaway didn’t feature a bit of chocolate! We are loving these Rocky Rice Cake Bars which are gluten free deliciousness and come in chocolate, strawberry and chocolate orange. They are seriously yummy and we have one case of chocolate bars to giveaway. Amazing!
