100th follower giveaway!

YAY! Finally made it to 100 followers. I swear those last 20 or so just dragged on. The good news is now the competition to celebrate can begin!

I know I kept the prizes a secret, but I said I would announce them once I had 100 followers so here goes...

  • Signed copy of Luke Mangan's most recent cookbook- At Home and in the mood. Even MY copy isn't signed so I'm a bit jealous. You may have seen me gush over this book before on this blog. To see my reviews click here. Thanks to Luke Mangan for donating this great prize. To eat at his establishments in Sydney (Glass), Melbourne (The Palace) and Tokyo (Salt and World Wine bar) check out

  • Next we have a gorgeous 'Marlo' necklace from Lydia Jewels. Befitting given that my name is Marlo. GET OUT OF TOWN! But seriously, I have this necklace (in black and gold) and it's so pretty and comfortable to wear. It's a bit glam while still being a great everyday piece. The winner will receive a purple and silver necklace that features frosted rose detailing with a beautiful light purple swarovski crystal drop. This has been generously donated by Lydia and you can see some of her other pieces here or the complete range at
I've talked about hair care previously and how I swear by the Joico K-Pak sun therapy range, particularly for those who swim or spend lots of time outdoors. Well, for the winner of this prize I have a set of products including nourishing shampoo, treatment mask and protective sun milk kindly donated by Hush communications. To see all the products from Joico, view

  • Lastly, I've included an adorable pink Hello Kitty umbrella. Since the title of the blog is all about cuteness, and she is one of my favourite things I thought it was a nice tie in. Plus, it's not too cutesy if the winner isn't that into Hello Kitty. You can just put your hand over her face and pretend she isn't there haha. The picture is of MY HK umbrella, but the winner's will be the same, just with a tag and plastic around it and without my fingerprints/DNA on it. See how cute it is?!
The rules
To be eligible to win this prize you must:

-Be a follower of my blog

  15. I'm following on my google account... hope it shows up! Great prizes :D

  16. LOVE this umbrella!! I used to have one with a print of HK's one true love daniel but it got lost when I moved house and it's yet to be found!

    That was 2 years ago. I've given up hope :(

  17. She turned to the man beside her, in the down pour, and said; "You know my love, I think the clock has turned, and turned, and turned and now I'm left standing here without my umbrella!" He replied; "Darling, sunshine, sweet, I am as loyal as the monsoon!" She turned her head to the road, looked back at him and kissed his lips like light rain. She hailed a cab, and was gone forever more.

    (: How's that for a comment? Haha. Some poetry just for you. (: if you ever want more - or if anyone does - just give me a bell churr?

  18. Hi Marlo,

    The competition officially closes tonight (31st March) but if someone from OS entered while I was asleep it wouldn't matter.
