// Happy Birthday MouldyFruit!


Today is my blog's one year birthday..

Wow.. I can't believe it's been a year! So much has happened in the last year, in life and in the blog - I just want to say a HUGE thank you to all. Thank you for reading, thank you for following and most importantly thank you for the support. I would never have thought a year later, I'd have so many people interested in what I ramble on about!

I really appreciate all my readers and all the feedback I receive. For this reason am doing a mini give away just to say thank you as I'm really bad at giving back to you guys. [Sorry!]

All you have to do is comment below saying 'Enter Me' and ALSO telling me what the highlight of your summer has been! [You HAVE to do both parts, otherwise your comment will be deleted and not included!]

You must also be a follower and the prize will be a MAC lipstick of your choice, whatever you prefer. It may be a few weeks till the winner recieves their prize as I'm travelling on Wednesday and have no idea if I will be able to make it down to MAC beforehand.. I will try, but won't be back till the end of the month!

I am looking forward to hearing your comments..

OOPS.. I forgot to add.. the giveaway finishes on Tuesday 14th at 7pm (GMT) Sorry it's short.. but I'm travelling the following morning!


Lots of Love.. and THANK YOU..

    My highlight of the summer was going to the Dominican Republic and a trip included seeing the local schools and homes.

  95. Enter me please (:

    The highlight of my summer was... Well I don't know if it can be classed as Summer can it but last week I went to the most breathtaking location ever (the weather was super hot!). Tentsmuir beach. I really loved it, it's an empty beach with clean sand, driftwood and lovely water! Looking around, I did not think I was in Scotland at all. It looked like so scenic, and something out of a movie and is a lovely place to go and collect thoughts and just have time out generally. It's my new thinking place and I love it! I also got to see my Mum earlier on in the summer and I really enjoyed it because I don't get to see her much because she lives in Manchester and i'm in Scotland. It's always a pretty good time when I go to see her though :)

    Happy blog-versary! I love your blog and you should definitely never stop. EVER haha :)

    P.S I am in love with those pics. Your wallpaper looks so pretty and the Vivienne Westwood shoes are just aaaah <3
