450 FOLLOWERS GIVEAWAY!!

CLOSED!!
Winners announced 01/08/10!


Hey everyone,

(The super-cute drawing of me was a gift from Rai of Blargle Fargle!)

It's finally here - the 450 Followers Giveaway!
Just like last time there are two sets of prizes to be won:


The Ditzy Floral Parcel is inspired by the florals and pastels trend this Spring/Summer.
Dainty and feminine items - perfect for a Summer picnic with tea, sandwiches and cupcakes.



  • Pink rose earrings from Topshop.

  • Pearl and hearts bracelet from Miss Selfridge.

  • Corsarge (can be worn as pin or hairclip) from Dorothy Perkins.

  • Cupcake tissues from Peacocks.

  • Pick 'n' Mix sweets from Topshop.

The Sweetheart Parcel is a Rockabilly love story wrapped up with a big lipstick kiss. Stereotypical Valentines-style items - as "the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself" - Carrie Bradshaw.


  • Set of heart and arrows earrings from Topshop.

  • Red bow hairclips from Dorothy Perkins.

  • Love pin from Miss Selfridge (sorry I had to remove the packaging - it was practically destroyed!)

  • Kisses tissues from Peacocks.

  • Pick 'n' Mix sweets from Topshop.

"So Carla! How can I be in with a chance to win these lovely prizes?" I hear you cry.
Funny you should ask:

This giveaway is open to all followers - it's because of you guys I love doing what I do here!

Muchos love,
MessyCarla.
