I’ve got a cracking giveaway this month and it involves a bit of self-care and attention – perfect for the changing season!
It’s from Blended Valley and they are giving away a Chakra Gift Set, featuring no less than 7 different Chakra oils.
Chakras are the seven energy centres located in the midline of the body starting at the base of your spine and going to the top of your head. These chakras affect everything from our basic physical instincts to our creativity, compassion, connection with our self-expression and self-esteem and spiritual growth and balance.
Due to environmental factors as well as physical illness or psychological problems, these chakras can become blocked and unbalanced, leading to a wide variety of symptoms that can leave us physically, emotionally and spiritually frustrated, trapped and stifled.
Working to re-open these chakras is often done via a combination of visualization and meditation along with essential oils. The oils stimulate the olfactory centre of the brain, which puts you in touch with emotions, memories and even spiritual desires.
The Chakra Gift Set includes Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown Chakra oils, and would make an ideal gift set for Mother’s Day on 31st March, costing £29.99 from Blended Valley.
This month I’m giving away a set for free – enter via the widget below….and good luck!

If you like design and unique architecture, you’re gonna love the prize giveaway for December!
I’ve teamed up with Palazzo Editions to give away a copy of Art Deco City: The World’s Most Beautiful Buildings.
Written by Arnold Schwartzman, an Oscar-winning film-maker, and printed by Palazzo, this wonderful collection of stunning Art Deco architecture from around the world can be enjoyed in hardback by all.
Featuring more than 400 colour photos from Europe, Australasia and the Americas, the book captures the very essence of Art Deco and its influences.
From the iconic Chrysler Building in New York, the Hoover Building in London and Palais de la Méditerranée in Nice to theatres, shopfronts, factories, hotels and private residences, it showcases some of the world’s most beautiful buildings.
It’s a real keeper – something for the coffee table to impress the guests with, or to simply browse through, admiring the thought and the detail that has gone into creating the fantastic designs.
The book costs £30 to purchase, but I’m giving away one special copy to the winner of the December competition.

Wow – what an amazing giveaway I have for you for October!
So in my Favourite Finds for September I did a little bit of bragging about my new Koi Footwear trainers (Kano Platform Tab Sneakers).
And I kid you not – I’m STILL wearing them every day. They’re fun, they’re funky and they’re fabulous!
As someone who’s vertically challenged, it’s lovely to reclaim an extra inch when I wear them – and what I really love is that they go with any outfit. Casual or smart.
Anyway, enough about my new trainers, what I’m really excited to tell you is that my October competition gives you the chance to win a £100 voucher from Koi Footwear!
Given that the online foot store offers ridiculous value on its footwear, that means you can bag yourself at least two pairs of footwear for that – and probably even three!
Enter via the widget below – and remember, the more entries you make, the higher the chance of winning!
If you’re a travel lover then you’ll appreciate Home and Horizon’s September competition prize – a photobook containing a wonderful collection of photographs taken from around the world.
This is a real coffee table book, meaning that it won’t just be left collecting dust on your table to impress the visitors; you’ll want to pick this up and have a good old nose too!
It’s from Rough Guides, has an RRP of £12.99 and is called ‘You Are Here’.
One of the reasons I chose the book is because of its amazing pictures – and the fact that I can sit down with the kids and look through the images, talking about where each was taken and what it depicts.
The photos (more than 300) were actually taken by real travellers from around the world – from Rainbow Mountain in Peru to sunset in Goa and Mongolian hunters – it’s all captured in this stunning photobook.
In the September competition, I’ve teamed up with Rough Guides to offer 3 copies of ‘You Are Here’ to give away.
You can enter via the widget below – and remember the more ways you enter, the higher the chance of winning.
Please note that the competition is open to UK entrants only.
