Tutti Frutti Designs Greeting Cards Giveaway

I always try to be organised and have a box of greeting cards available for last minute birthdays and occasions. Being a busy mum I forget to buy cards at times so keeping a little selection readily available has kept me out of trouble with the family many of times!

So when Tutti Frutti Designs got in contact asking me to have a look at their selection of greeting cards I thought why not? I love to support smaller independent business and help them get their products “out there”.

Happy 3rd Blogiversary – Giveaway Day 4

Hello, welcome back to the last day of my 3rd blogiversary giveaways. You can catch up with days 1, 2 and 3 here on the competitions page.

Why I’m still in love with blogging 3 years down the line:

In the blog world each day is different. You honestly never know what is going to turn up in your email box. It could be someone wanting the earth for pennies or nothing! But then it could be a fantastic opportunity, well paid and an absolute dream project to work on. These are few and far between these days and as the blogging world welcomes many new bloggers everyday they are becoming very rare. At this point you need to be the one that stands out from everyone else.

Happy 3rd Blogiversary

Happy 3rd Blogiversary – Giveaway Day 2

Welcome back to Day 2 of my 3rd blogiversary giveaways. You can catch up with the Day 1 giveaway here.

The first year of blogging, I did it as a hobby. Writing about my favourite hobbies – books, gardening and entering competitions. When my daughter joined us, I turned my blog into another direction – family/parenting orientated. At the start of blogging I couldn’t think of a decent blog name so chose my own name Rachel Bustin. Now I’m so glad I did because that name can grow with my blog into any direction and not just the “mummy blogger” route.

Blogging is not just a hobby for me or even a job, it’s a way of life. There is hardly a day goes by that I don’t write something. If I can’t get on my laptop I write posts on the app on my phone.

It’s amazing to find something in life that you know you were born to do. It may have taken me until I hit my 30’s to get there but I’m here at last!

 

Happy 3rd Blogiversary

For today’s giveaway I have this lovely makeup brush set and blusher palette.

Competition – Win a £50 Voucher to spend at PoundToy

PoundToy are a website that specialises in kids toys. Their prices are guaranteed to beat the high street. So when they got in touch asking if we wanted to try out their website and of course go shopping we jumped at the challenge.

There are many toys and games to browse through. Toys for different ages are categorised in appropriate age brackets and also brands. So if you are looking for Fireman Sam toys you can go straight to that section. I know the website is called PoundToy, but the prices range all the way from 30p right up to toys £20+.

They also sell party supplies like party bag fillers, toys and fancy dress costumes. So a great alternative if you are planning birthday parties.

You can pop over here to see what we bought on our shopping haul at PoundToy.
