Quick! Behind the Sofa...*Giveawayyyy*

Okay, so im not organising a suprise party...but I am organising...well, hosting, a suprise of sorts. Thats right, Im celebrating 150 followers. Wow! Who would have thought, that anyone would want to read what I have to say! Haha. Well look at that, turns out some of you do, and I feel so very blessed by the fact that I have made some truely amazing friends through this little blog of mine. yay! So, I thought, Lets have a giveaway. Why not right. But then I thought, Why not make it a giveaway with a twist. A twist is always good right? A twist of lime in a GnT, A twist on the dance floor, a twist in this giveaway.

So. Its going to remain a secret. Yup. Ill give you some clues as to the gifts I am going to include, but you see, I wont reveal the final product until after the winner has been selected. That makes it fun right? I think so! Okie Doke... well here is how you can enter... You have to be a follower of this blog in order to win! {This is a thank you to my loves, but of course all you new friends are loved to! So follow away and enter the draw!} That goes for all the entries then there are 3 ways you can enter the giveaway.

1. Leave a comment with your name, email address and tell me where you would be and what you would be doing if you could be anywhere in the world at this very moment.
2. For an extra entry... leave a comment with your guess as to what might be in this mystery prize! Correspond your guesses with the numbers of the clues... kinda like a crossword I guess! If you get 4 things right, you will get an extra entry into the draw. {I will delete your messages so no one else can cheat! But keep count of how many entries you have!!} Oh and leave me your email address.
3. Oh, and one more entry you can blog about this giveaway and leave a link with your email address in a comment

(Have you got the hint, that if you dont leave an email address your entry wont count?! I hope so! hehe)

Now... Onto the fun bit... The clues...

1. Decorate your cervical vertabrae with an ornament of the sparkley variety.
2. Im usually coupled with an arrow, some sheep or under a mans chin.
3. Im 100% natural, protect from the sun, a little bit waxy and moisturise like no ones business.
4. Unlike #3 Im not practical in any sense. Im shiny, sticky and see through.
5. Produced from seeds, bitter, sweet or sickly?
6. Just add a pen, a stamp and a friend.
7. Who knows what it will contain, its all round and shiny and holds a true love of mine.
8. dont hang out the washing, pick something much prettier.
9. Pin me up, oh you pretty lady!
I was born in 1935, I generally live in the cold, and Im a delightful shade of a fruit.

Confused? Or maybe you will creep right into my brain and be able to work them all out! You have two weeks to think about this! The giveaway is going to close on the 9th of June {my time}... So thats the evening of the 8th for all you americans out there!

OOOOOH! And you only have 4 more days to enter the Package Swap. Go on, you know you want too!


  1. Oh I love a good mystery. You have me so stumped! There are two places I'd love to be. Either with my brother Karim and his family on their 6 week vacation in Africa or with my other brother Aneez and his family in Basingstoke, England. Wherever anyone in my family may be is always where I want to be.

    Happy night sweet Tillie...

  2. I would love to be lying on a tropical beach somewhere, listening to some great music, and with a fruity drink in my hand! In fact, I'd do pretty much anything for that right now, especially since the school year is drawing to a close and grading finals and assigning grades is so stressful. :|

  19. Just made my way over here after seeing your amazing word art on the mix cd you made Megan, knew this would be a catch of a blog.

    If I could be anywhere in the world right now I would be at a retro diner eating ice cream sundaes and pancakes with my closest friends and family. I really wouldn't care about location as long as they could all be there.

  27. I would be in NYC [my favouritest city in the whole wide world], drinking ice cold cocktails laughing at his silly jokes. Looking at one another, thinking about the way his eyes look, the way he gets so nervous and goes a subtle shade of rose when he looks at me. The way he gets excited. I would feel my heart beating slowly through my chest. I would be giddy with excitement...I would be ridiculously happy. Like I always am when I'm near him. This is where I want to be right now!
