Happy 3rd Blogiversary – Giveaway Day 1

**This post may contain affiliate links.

This week sees my 3rd blogiversary. I cannot believe I have been blogging for three years now. It’s like they say, time flies when you are having fun! I’ve grown my following to over 14k in that time. It may not seem a lot to many over three years but you have to bear in mind that I’ve been working full-time during that time and had a baby girl. It’s my achievement and I’m very proud of myself.

Happy 3rd Blogiversary

In the past year, I have worked really hard and grown my little blog business to earn my family a part-time wage. It has helped us to save money for things for the new house we moved into last June. It has given us many opportunities to try new things we couldn’t afford if I didn’t blog. Plus we have a little holiday coming up in September to review for the blog. It’s somewhere we wouldn’t have thought to go if I wasn’t blogging!

I’m looking forward to what the next year brings us!

Thanks for popping by and reading, I love to read all your comments. It brightens up my day.

Giveaway Day 1

To celebrate hitting three years I’m having a four-day giveaway. Don’t ask me why it’s four days and not three, but I have a little something to giveaway for each of the four days with a fantastic prize on day four!

Here is the giveaway for day 1

  • A ballpoint diamond effect fashion pen from Ragetorc. Worth £4.99
  • A copy of Court of Lions by Jane Johnson – you can read my review here.
