It’s Friday! Hooray! It’s nearly Easter as well, so double hooray for a long weekend of whatever! To celebrate the little things being awesome, Zalando kindly provided me with a little prize to give to one of you lovely lot. Well, little…will a £100 gift card make you smile?
While setting up this giveaway, I couldn’t resist a little window shopping of my own…I’m sure it’s not just me, but do you see things while shopping online that would be perfect for your favourite people?
Sarah Mia is always working away on her laptop, so I’d choose this yellow Mexx tote bag for her so she could get out of her home for a change of scenery. For Sarah, I’d pick this Orla Kiely dress – it just looks like a Sarah dress, you know? These Casadei high heels are pretty crazy looking, but I have this theory that Amy can basically wear ANYTHING and make it look good.
This Louche jumper with a cat wearing cat eye glasses on it? That’s totally one for the cat lady that is Bex. My best friend finally had her baby last week (squeeeeeeee! I can’t wait to meet the little man!) and I love this little Bonnie Baby jumper with a fox on it (I bet Fritha’s Wilf already has one similar!). I suspect Gina already has a pair of shoes similar to these Miss KG stilettos, but you can never have too many pairs, right? Finally, I think I need this tea set for myself – not that I need any more teapots and pretty cups!
So, the main thing that I want you to do to enter this competition is to tell me something lovely that made you smile this week. Whether it’s seeing your name written down a certain way (I love seeing my Twitter name handwritten for some reason!), realising that you’ve got an awesome group of people around you, or just having a really good cup of tea – what has put some joy into your day lately? (That link is to my tumblr account which I try to record (when I remember!) what has made me smile!) You can also earn further entries by tweeting about it and doing a bit of following on Facebook and Bloglovin’.
The giveaway is open to UK residents only (sorry international peeps!) and ends at midnight on Sunday 7th April, so you’ve got lots of time to enter! Good luck!

The gammon sandwich I’m eating for lunch and the fact that I’m going to the theatre tonight for free, is definitely making me smile! :D
The huge bunch of fake flowers sitting on my desk keep making me smile every time I look at them. I have all my bridesmaids coming round on sunday to make flower crowns for the wedding :)
Emma Cossey says
Oh I love that blog idea! I use an app called Grid Diary to write down everything that I’ve done/ appreciate from the day. But today, it’s coming home from a morning meeting to work from home for the rest of the day. On the sofa. With really cosy clothes on.
AWESOME GIVEAWAY IS AWESOME.
This week: arranging a meet up with a friend to FINALLY meet her new baby, eating waffles for breakfast, being given a beautiful book as a surprise gift, my electric blanket, finishing a crossword ON MY OWN WITHOUT CHEATING and being *this* close to booking my first group holiday with friends :) Eee!

Things that have made me happy: when my fiancé comes home from work with two large bags of Mini Eggs for me. And then I eat them all myself in the space of two days. Yum. Also, buying dresses for my hen party / honeymoon!
ARGH! Was already mid-comment about the cat jumper before I decided to go back and actually read the post and saw you’d already thought of me.
This makes me sound like a terrible person but someone spilled a cup of tea on our coffee pod yesterday and it made me howl laughing. It may be one of those things where you had to be there but I swear it was funny and nobody got burned…
Let me think of another thing that made me smile….
Puppies! Puppies are funny aren’t they? Last night Rosie was being a lunatic and I told her in my cross voice to SIT and she did, but did it so lopsided that she immediately fell over. What a fool.
Stories about dogs being foolish make me come across much better than stories where I laugh at people spilling hot water. Don’t tell anyone about that first one, okay?
Things that have made me smile – a Lush bubble bath with Ferrero Rocher, Grazia a Yankee Vanilla Cupcake candle and Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald after a couple of hard days’ work last night, my husband’s hugs, my baby’s kicks and my sister getting more cats!
Yesterday it was seeing a painting that I love and got so familiar with when doing my degree, in real life for this first time :D
It would have to be either my boyfriend doing his ‘Morrissey dancing’ to embarrass me in a bar, which made me howl with laughter, or the little dog at the market near my house who has a pink jumper on this week that barely stretches round his big fat pug head. Both totally perfect.

Silly bears being silly made me smile this week. Also smelly husband bringing me chocolate bunnies – The best kind!

Seeing my sons school report :-)
Winning a bag on Saturday was a lovely surprise! And I really liked meeting and hanging out with a new ‘blog friend’ this week (writing that makes me think of The Inbetweeners ‘frieeend’ sketch but there you go!) : )
Being taken away on a lovely chilled out weekend by my fab husband for my birthday was a surprise that made me smile :)

My brother coming home from university for the Easter holidays, he arrived yesterday and has been making me smile a lot already – so different from when we were younger!
Intrinsically Florrie says
Thank you for this lovely giveaway!
I’ve had a huge grin on my face this week because I heard that I can have some medical treatment for my chronic migraines which I’ve been hoping for for years- yay!
Something that always makes me smile is when my guinea pigs come out to play, they’re so funny the way they trot round the floor and snuggles with them are always good too. :)
