500.000 Views Big Giveaway


I can't believe that I've reached 500.000 views! It's such a wonderful milestone. A year ago I went on holiday at the end of April. It was the second time I stopped blogging. I thought I should either quit and put it behind me or give it my all and make my blog a success. I decided to go for it, I wanted to face my fears and work on my insecurities.


I tried to be more active on social media and found some lovely twitter friends. I also started to read review books. Not much later I rediscovered Etsy. I want my blog to be a happy place, a website that people can visit to make them smile. It used to be my dream to cheer people up and with my blog I can do exactly that.


Of course I host a lot of giveaways and I'm also trying to find interesting books, beauty products and beautiful items to write about. I love making questionnaires and am going to try to have them more often, so I can keep posting about interesting facts. A lot of time, effort and research goes into my blog and I love every minute of it.


Even though my photographs this time aren't the best I think you can see that I'm giving away a lot of wonderful items. One winner will receive everything on these photos. That means a huge package filled with lovely goodies and several other prizes.


I'm grateful for every view and each visit. It makes my day to receive messages from people who like my blog and I appreciate them all. It's been a fabulous year and I'm hoping there will be many more.


Good luck!



I will contact the winner on twitter or via email. If I don't get a reply within 60 hours the prize will go to someone else. All of my giveaways are international.   
Please don't cheat. For every prize that's being offered to you someone has worked very hard. I won't send prizes to people who are not playing fair.
 Normally I will send my prizes within 10 days. I often use registered mail, so will be able to track most packages. If you haven't received your prize within 5 weeks please contact me.
It can take a long time for mail to arrive in the Middle East, some parts of Australia and South America. I will ship to every country, but I can't make the mail go any faster.
It's your responsibility to know about import restrictions for your own country.
