Now that 2016 is coming to a close, I wanted to take a moment and reflect on the past year. It has been a wonderful year for my blog and I now have one hundred subscribers from around the world. I never expected anyone other than me to be interested in my ramblings, my recipes and my thrifting and refashioning posts. So thank you to all of you who have subscribed or who have read my posts and especially to those who have taken the time to comment or give me feedback on my posts. You can’t imagine how much I appreciate the fact that you took the time to let me know what you think. It is wonderful to hear from you. I look forward to each new comment with great delight.
Now to look forward to 2017. I hope the up coming year brings you health, happiness, love and lots of memorable adventures in your life. May your hearts be filled with joy and love and may you succeed beyond your wildest dreams. Happy New Year! Cheers, Michele

When I started this blog a year ago I never thought I would have as much interest in what I tend to ramble on about as I have, so I am completely delighted to have finally reached over 10,000 views on my blog. I know some bloggers get 10,000 views per day, but this is a pretty big milestone for me and my little blog. I want to thank all the lovely people who have taken the time to look at and read my blog as well comment and give me encouragement to continue this journey. Thank you so much. Cheers, Michele
I have had a lot of lovely response to the giveaway that I am hosting on my blog to celebrate my one year anniversary. But some people have put their names in without completing the entrance guidelines. In order to complete your entry you must do two things:
- Subscribe or be subscribed to my blog
- Send me an email to tell me which or all of the prizes you wish to be entered for.
Just do those two things and you are entered in the giveaway. Cheers, Michele
So to add to my original prize of a fully thrifted outfit for a winner of my giveaway contest, I have come up with some additional prizes. Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog and send me a comment of which prize or prizes you would like to win!! Thanks to the generous donations of my daughter, Katie, Sephora and David’s Tea, I have come up with 5 beauty bundles and 2 book bundles to give away.
The first two have high-end fragrances, skin care, and some makeup. There are a varied assortment of travel and trial sizes for you to choose from, as well as a little makeup bag to carry them. There are some beautiful skin treatments and masks as well for pampering and helping you to look your best.
Then I have two more practically identical bags which are high-end fragrance and skin care only with sample sizes of some amazing products. There is a good mix from face treatments, to washes, to masks, to serums. The fragrances are a wide assortment of sample sizes to help you find your signature scent. These also include a makeup bag for each prize.
The final beauty bundle is a mixture of some fabulous brands of makeup in full and sample sizes from Urban Decay, Nars, Two-Faced, Marc Jacobs, Hourglass and Makeup Forever. There are also some samples and full sizes of skin care and fragrance as well. It comes in a rose gold makeup bag which can be reused for your travels. This is about a $180.00 CDN valued prize. A real treasure trove for the beauty stylist and makeup fan out there.
For the cookbook addicts out there, I have a six book bundle of cookbooks including gluten-free ones. This book bundle will include an assortment of delicious teas to sip and enjoy as you leaf through the beautiful cookbooks.
For the fiction fans I have a six book bundle of varied genres to hopefully fit the types of books you like to read. This bundle will also include some teas for sipping while curled up with a good book.
I am still offering the thrifted by me complete outfit for a lucky winner, but I wanted to add a little mix of prizes for those of you who aren’t into thrifting. Don’t forget to subscribe and send me a message telling me which of the prizes you want to be entered to win. You can enter for all the prizes, but each winner will only receive one prize. This giveaway is open world wide and is open to all my followers, friends and family. So don’t be afraid to try your luck. Cheers, Michele
So one year ago on the 24th of September, I posted for my first time on my blog. I have really enjoyed blogging, far more than I expected and hope to be doing this for a long time to come. I want to thank all the lovely people who have visited my blog, signed up or commented on my posts. In honour of this milestone, I will be doing a giveaway that is open worldwide.
Rules of Giveaway:
The rules are very simple, just subscribe to my blog, leave a comment that you wish to be entered, and your name is entered, simple as that. If you are already subscribed, just send me a comment that you wish to be entered in the giveaway. On the 30th of September, I will randomly pick a name. I will contact the winner and get some stats on that person which will remain private. Then I will go and shop for them and find a complete outfit with accessories included based on their figure stats, shoe size and style preferences. I will post what I found before sending the prize to the winner. The entire outfit will be my gift to the lucky subscriber and it is open worldwide.
Hopefully the winner will be kind enough to send me a picture of them wearing the outfit and I really hope they like what I bought for them. Help me celebrate my anniversary by signing up and entering the giveaway. So I hope you will sign up for this giveaway and good luck to the participants. Cheers, Michele
