Thank You!


Thank you!

I have something to celebrate today. I'm honored that my blog has been viewed 1,000,000 times. I still can't believe it. It makes me very happy that people like it enough to visit. Of course I've done a happy dance today, for me this is an amazing milestone. I started my blog because I love reading and online shopping. I also really like combining the two and most of all I like sharing. I want to make people happy by sending them some lovely mail or a great prize, but also by giving their work some much deserved attention. I want my blog to be a positive place, a website where people only find wonderful things. I couldn't have done this without the help of Anniek, Eline and Tanya. They are amazing and their encouraging words, enthusiastic chats and energetic approach helps me to make things happen. Behind the scenes my husband does a lot for me, he proof reads, prepares packages and helps me whenever I need it. He's a beautiful person inside and out.

 I'm very fortunate that I have such a great support system. This also goes for my amazing readers, fellow bloggers and the authors and artists who give me the opportunity to feature them. I'm lucky and I'm grateful, thank you all! Big and warm hugs to everyone who's been there for me!

Giveaway 

One reader of my blog will receive two surprise gifts from me, one to keep and one to give away. The only thing you have to do to enter is telling me what you and your friend would like to receive. Good luck!

 I will contact the winner 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, you can find the official rules here.

  2. Congratulations, that's amazing Suze! Though your blog is fab, so it is not a big surprise to me that it is so popular. If I were to receive a gift, I would appreciate anything, chocolate, books, writing paper, smelly stuff. I would give the other gift to my best friend who has been really supportive to me in tough times, just to say thanks.
