For a good while now I have hankered after a piece by Chambers & Beau – I love my kids, I love beautiful things and I love jewellery. Amy, the talent behind the brand (creep, creep, please pick me, *sighs* bloody random number generator!) is running a FAB competition. She is giving away one of her fabulous pieces of jewellery of your choosing, from their new collection, to the value of £150! In order to enter, you must simply post a link to the competition on your blog and leave a link to it in the comments section of Amy’s blog!
I know exactly which piece I will be having if I win and have literally everything crossed!
Very sadly one of my Twends (Twitter Friends) Caz Arnold aka @dougggie sadly lost her father very suddenly on Christmas day. The reason for this post is that Caz is currently in the middle of raising money for the Dogs Trust Arctic Dogs Sledding Challenge. As you can imagine this has knocked her sideways and she is appropriately focussed on her family and unable to put much energy in to it. The lovely Dany from Tums2Mums, a specialist hypnotherapy practitioner for fertility, pregnancy and childbirth and who helped me with both my pregnancy & birth of Baby G, has put together a great competition to help raise funds, as the meerkat on TV says “simples” …
The prize – 3 lucky entrants will win my complete 5 x Hypnosis for Childbirth mp3s worth £26. If you’d like to find out more about these mp3s click here
To enter – All I ask is that you click on Caz’s fund raising link at the bottom of this page and put a minimum (more if you want) donation of £2. All names will then be entered into a draw. In order for you to be contacted please ensure that you put the following information in the comments box when making your donation:
Tums2Mums competition and either your Baby Centre or Twitter ID. If you do not have either of these please leave your name and then tick the box that enables Caz to see your email address and she will then make sure your prize reaches you. Your email address WILL NOT be used for anything other than ensuring that should be be the winner you get your prize.
The competition will close at midnight on 9th January 2010 and the winners will be announced on or shortly after 10th January 2010. This competition will be promoted on a number of other notice boards, if you are willing and able to promote it please do so – the spirit of this is to help a friend out in need, start the year with good karma, click on the link and donate.

Thank you for helping me help a lovely lady and a worthy cause.
I am all excited about competitions this week! Why? Well, two reasons – I have won one and I am running one!
Competitions makes me feel all nostalogic, entering competitions is something my Nana used to do on my behalf and also with me. My Nana was master of the “tie breaker” and she used to win loads of stuff too – a lego set and a snoopy watch (I still have the watch in my jewellery box!) are two prizes I still fondly remember!
So what did I win, well over at Mums Like You I won two tickets to the Designer Baby Show so have the chance to spend a day enjoying shopping, talking and discovering best-of-breed baby products. Sadly for me the timing (15th November) and the geography (Berkshire, I live in Cheshire) with baby number two due early October meant I have returned the tickets for another lucky winner to be redrawn – I like to think I am sharing the love! So on this occassion, whilst the taking part was important it was pretty much all about the winning! Ha Ha!
So that’s the won one, now to the one I am running … which is for my stationery business, Dandelion Lounge. It will coincide with our Christmas Card, Festive Photo Inserts and Thank You card designs all going live for the festive season and will be running over at the fabulous Café Bébé starting on Sunday 7th through to Saturday 12th September. Full details are already posted up there in anticipation so I shall say no more and let you head on over and check it out … and whilst you are there you still have time to enter a great competition from DaisyChainBaby to win win a gorgeous gift basket worth nearly £30.
You gotta be in it to win it! So please do go check it out!
