Let The Christmas Giveaway Begin - Winner Takes All

Pin It


So I'm a little bit excited as I write this because I know that one lucky winner is going to win over $800 worth of awesome prizes from this giveaway.

But wait folk's that's not all!

Ahhh no I am not going to whisk out any steak knifes or bonus sham wow thingies, but I am going to tell you that I also have some other giveaways lined up for throughout the month of December so go crazy and enter them all OK?


I'm kind of chomping at the bit now so let's just dive on in shall we.

Blue Illusion

Blue Illusion is one of those stores that has it all - stunning outfits, gorgeous accessories, shoes AND home wares.

Fashion is their Passion and their extensive range is inspired by Parisian Chic.

There are 107 Blue Illusion Boutiques scattered throughout Australia and New Zealand as well as an online store.

Apart from the massive range of beautiful clothing, my other fave bit about these guys, is that they are a business with one mighty big conscience and it is estimated that they donate around $500 thousand dollars annually to a number of different charities including World Vision, National Breast Cancer Foundation, Dress for Success, Bali Life, Red Cross Australia and Smith Family.

You can follow their Blog L'Edition here to stay up to date on the latest and greatest from Blue Illusion and make sure you hook up with their Facebook Page here too.

The very VERY generous team at Blue Illusion would like to give this month's lucky winner a $500 to spend online with them. 

Holy Smokes Batman - that is a lot of loot to go shopping with. But ummm - good luck choosing what you would like to get as you are gonna be SPOILED for choice. Trust me as I had a hell of a time trying to narrow down my picks for the picture above.


Now you KNOW I have a weakness for cute kids clothing and as for the adorably funky shirts from Arkadia - OMG I Die!!

Arkadia was given life by Ammber and Justin, a couple of cool cats who believe that life is an adventure and that Arkadians, both big and small, should embrace their individuality and not be afraid to go against the grain.

Oh I do like that philosophy very much.

Their unique prints are all designed and made in Australia and woven into the fabric of every piece is the wonderment of childhood, the joy of adventure and the magic of nature. They draw their inspiration from their own childhood memories, film and music, quotes, simple pleasures and vintage treasures.

How cool are they! No really - HOW COOL ARE THEY!!!!

You can check out the full range of uber cool kids clothes at the Arkadia Emporium here and follow them on Facebook here.

The lucky winner will receive a $50 gift voucher to spend on their insanely fabulous kids clothes. Lucky Duck!

Dinosaur District
OK have you stopped drooling at all the gorgeousness in the picture above. It's alright, you can have longer if you need it and I will completely understand ;)

Dinosaur District's website is TOTALLY drool worthy and if you plan on having a peek around their site, set yourself aside some extra time as you won't be able to click away.

Amy and Cat - the two sisters who founded Dinosaur District have a dream to make every child's bedroom a and play area a place of magic, mystique and charm. 

They scour all over Australia AND Internationally to find the most fabulous original products that are functional, affordable and most importantly, fun.

My kids have already added a few goodies from Dinosaur District to their Christmas Wishlist and there are quite a few things on there that I wouldn't mind for myself too.

Follow the girls on Facebook here, instagram here or go and check out their gorgeous website here. But you've been warned OK!

Amy and Cat have chosen THIS gorgeous Lamb cushion valued at $66.00 to give to this Giveaway's lucky winner. Heads up - I'm gonna go all green eyed on you.


Once again Method have come up with the good stuff this Christmas - a limited edition Frosted Fir dish pump and hand gel pack.

It looks like Christmas in a bottle and it SMELLS like Christmas with it's frosty evergreen scent.

Come on - your kitchen sink deserves to get a little festive this season too doesn't it? Yes. It does!

Follow Method Australia on Facebook to stay up to date on the latest news.

You can order the limited edition Christmas pack here, but the lucky winner of this giveaway will get to try it out for themselves for free.

In my humble opinion, a home can never have too much wall candy - especially when it comes to kid's bedrooms!

Hayley, the clever clogs behind Ollipop has a background in the design industry but has spread her wings to spend time doing something she loves to do, which is create totally cool poster prints.

In her words "My designs are inspired by children's imagination, whimsical places, abstract, shape, colour, typography, vintage… in fact anything that my magpie-like curiosity thinks would make an inspiring piece of art."

The majority of the prints are personalised with your name of choice and there are designs for kids, pet lovers and home lovers too. They would make the CUTEST Christmas present for someone special.

You can view the full gallery of designs here and follow Hayley and Ollipop on Facebook here.

The winner of this giveaway will receive a personalised print of their choice values at $49.99.

I'll admit it - I am a cushion Junkie. I have literally dozens of them around the house and I am forever introducing new ones to the mix. Partly because I really REALLY love cushions although I change my mind a lot when it comes to colour palettes, and partly because one of my dogs also loves cushions .... maybe a little too much because when he has finished making out with them, he eats them. Too much info right?

So I have a number of Rapee designs in my cushion collection and I love how spoilt you are for choice when it comes to designs, colours and styles. Seriously - check out their online catalogue here and I challenge you to come away without lusting after a boot load of them.

Their Summer collection has just been released and is full of all the gorgeous colours you would want in your own home this season and it is not just limited to cushions. There are throws and linens, tea towels and bedding - yup they've go it all there to tempt you. Follow the Rapee I Love Cushions Page on Facebook to stay up to date with all the latest trends.

The fabulous gang at Rapee are giving the lucky winner a cushion and throw rug pack valued at $100 buckeroos.

Stone Inspired
Last but not least, I am showcasing these gorgeous and I mean GORGEOUS hand made marble coasters and wall art from Stone Inspired.

Besides from cushions, pineapples, washi tape, the colour yellow, vodka and ampersands - I also have a thing for coasters. You think I'm kidding don't you. Laugh if you will but I have 3 boys - Coaster are mine and my furniture's best friends!

Leonie is the creative talent behind these gorgeous designs and her marble art is handcrafted from natural
tumbled marble and artfully distressed to create an old world appearance. 

There are a number of unique designs to choose from or you can create your own with photos, quotes and 
even corporate logos. Check out the full range here.

I had to choose a set for a prize for this giveaway and I may have been a little biased towards a particular 
design. No prizes for guessing I went for the Palm Trees, Pineapples and coastal designs. 

Yup the lucky winner of the Giveaway will receive a set of four coasters from the Sail away collection valued at $44.95

Alright - so that little Santa sack adds up to over $800 worth of fabulous prizes that ONE lucky winner will collect.

Entering is easy, just leave me a comment telling me in 25 words or less  -
