BIG BAG GIVEAWAY BONANZA! (CLOSED)

****GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED****

First of all, apologies for not launching this giveaway yesterday as planned, but our New Years eve (after several bottles of Cava!!!!) turned into an impromptu karaoke session at 1in the morning till 3am, and yesterday the Whirlwind decided she was going to play diva all day, so a hungover mommy didn't get anything done!

Anyhooo, Welcome to my first sugarmouse giveaway!
One lucky reader is GOING TO WIN this gorgeous reversible weekend tote...Hand made by me in a beautiful plush purple baby cord, with what I'm calling a 'raggedy scrap' removable brooch ,
And a gorgeous green/purple/blue/pink stripe cotton on the reverse..... 2 bags in one!
The photos really do not do justice to how gorgeous the colours of these fabrics are. The bag measures approx W30cm x L28cm with a 30cm straps that fit perfectly on the shoulders....
AND it gets better......The giveaway is going to run for the next 7 days and i shall be adding a goodie into the bag each day until then! so make sure you check back each day to see what has been added.

The giveaway is open to everyone and there are a few ways to be in with a chance of winning, you can do one or all of them! The more ways you enter the more chances you have of winning!

1. leave a comment telling what 3 things you always keep in your handbag ( mobiles and purses are a given!) mine are a pair of tweezers, a mirror, and a clementine. the first two because i have eyebrows like Noel Gallagher! and i am an obsessive plucker! and the third because the Whirlwind LOVES clementines and they keep her quiet whilst I'm plucking my eyebrows at the bus stop!

2. Become a follower!

3. Mention my give away on your blog and make a link from yours to mine.

4. Mention my giveaway on twitter/ Facebook. .

Entries for 1 and 2 are pretty straightforward, but if you do 3 or 4 just leave another comment stating so. and don't forget to leave details of either e-mail or your blogs so i can contact you if you win!
Closing date for entries is midnight UK time, Saturday 9th January. And draw will take place Sunday 10th.
I hope that's all clear for everyone, and i look forward to hearing from you all.

I am really excited to be hosting my first giveaway and i hope you all will enjoy it too...Check back tomorrow to see what will be the first little goodie to add to the bag???

weathertoday said...

Weather Forecast is a set of all the phenomena occurring in a given atmosphere at a given time. Most weather phenomena occur in the troposphere, just below the stratosphere. Weather Today refers, generally, to day-to-day temperature and precipitation activity, whereas climate is the term for the average atmospheric conditions over longer periods of time. When used without qualification, "weather" is understood to be the weather of Earth.
