Gallant Giveaway to celebrate my first blogiversary!!!!

Dearest Devotees,

*rises and adjusts the speaker stands awkwardly*

Warning: LOADS of gushy appreciation ahead :)

This time a year ago was the first time I began this amazing journey that I'm on and along the way I have met so many lovely, talented, intelligent and all-round beautiful people. This experience would not have been the same without any of you. Sometimes people ask me how I do all the things I do and what keeps me motivated and my answer is and will always be that there is intense desire I have to connect with people that share my dreams, aspirations, values and interests. I love sharing everything of myself with these people, to help them in whatever way I can but I also really love the response that I get from you, my lovely devotees and supporters. Good relationships are never one-sided and I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know some of you through the comments you leave and through other social media, including your blogs. You are my biggest source of inspiration and without you all I can't imagine I would be the same person I am today. You make me believe that I can achieve all my dreams and in the one year since I started blogging I have come so far from the person with all the amazing ideas and none of the wherewithal to complete them. Now when I say I want to do something I go for it. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't but at least I know in the end that I've tried.

I guess all I'm really trying to say is Thank you all for everything. I love blogging, the blogosphere and my devotees :)

To celebrate, I've decided to host a giveaway partially in conjunction with CSN stores. The first prize is for devotees only because it is straight from me to thank you guys for supporting me :) It is a surprise gift that I will hunt for in the upcoming week. The second prize is open to everyone and is $40 gift card to be used on anything you want on CSN stores site, which is this huge online retail site with everything from decor pieces for your personal space to trunks to potential inspiration boards. I currently have my eyes on their wooden bulletin boards. To enter all you need is to leave a comment below. If you are a devotee and want to enter for the first prize just let me know in the comments below.

Entries will be taken from now until the 6th of July after which I will randomly select the two winners.

Love you all and Stay inspired,
