If you follow me on Instagram you may have heard about the Black Luxe Lace Bloomer giveaway that will be running this week.  It’s a little celebration for having reached 3K followers on Instagram, which is something that I still can’t quite believe has happened so quickly!

I wanted this giveaway to be something a little special. It’s not open to just anyone, everyone and their pet budgie, but only to those who have subscribed to my mailing list. For those of you who engage with my business, with my posts on social media, and my sometimes off-topic, often verbose streams of consciousness and stories. For those of you who have purchased from me once, and those who have purchased multiple times (thank you!!!).

Unfortunately, I can only open this competition to people living in Australia – though I promise, those of you who are overseas, you are not forgotten! I just need to train some carrier pigeons to deliver my products worldwide in a much more economical way…

So, what’s the prize?
The prize is one pair of Black Luxe Lace Bloomers, valued at $89.95, in the winner’s choice of size from 00000-3/4. The winner can also choose to have no ribbon, or a silver or black ribbon stitched at the centre back.  The prize also includes tracked postage within Australia with a signature required upon delivery, valued at $13.55.

How do you enter?

  1. First, if you haven’t already, you need to subscribe to my mailing list/newsletter. You can do that by entering your email at the bottom of this page.
  2. Then, you need to look out for the competition email. I’ll be sending it out, to the day’s new subscribers, every night at 9pm AEST from Sunday 9th October, 2016 until Sunday 16th October, 2016.
  3. Enter the competition using the link in the email and by telling me, in 50 words or less, the story behind the name of someone precious to you. It could be how and why you named one of your children, or it could be the story of your own name.
  4. Use the same link to enter again the next day, with another name story!

Can you enter more than once?
Absolutely! You can enter once per day, for the duration of the competition. Just make sure each entry is unique, telling a different name story.

How will I choose the winner?
In consultation with my own, real-life “naming partner” (i.e. my husband, Loc) I will select the answer that I deem to be most original.

If you didn’t get the email…
I’ll be sending the email out to new subscribers each evening at 9pm, while the competition is running. If you haven’t received it during the expected timeframe, check your junk folder – and then contact me and I will make sure you are on the mailing list correctly and that you get sent the competition link.

Full terms and conditions of the giveaway are available on the competition website, at the bottom of the giveaway widget.

I can’t wait to read your name stories, given how important the story behind the name Eighteen Fifty One is to me… But that’s a whole other blog post!
