I’m sure I’m not alone when I say how much I love using Pinterest, right? For me, it’s not just a form of social media (though it is easily one of my favourites!) – it’s a great way to get creative, feel inspired and share ideas. I can happily spend time pinning photos I’ve taken, sharing blog posts and discovering everything from interiors to recipes – and beyond! We even started a board when we bought our new home, and still add ideas to it regularly.
Not long after joining in the fun on Pinterest, I started to see an increase in follower numbers. Even though I believe that interaction and quality content are the most important parts of growing your blog or brand online, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t just a tiny bit jazzed about this increase. I’m truly grateful for every read, view, click and follow that I get, whether it’s here or across social media – you guys are seriously awesome! I wanted to do something special to mark hitting 500,000 followers over on Pinterest, so thought it was high time I hosted a blog giveaway to say a HUGE thank you!
Today, I’m happy to launch my Yay! 500k Giveaway!
Ever since I started blogging, a huge part of what really gets me feeling inspired is discovering amazing independent businesses and sharing them with you. So, for this giveaway, I’ve teamed up with the fabulous Ginger Pickle online boutique to bring you a bag jam-packed full of goodies!
Ginger Pickle stock a gorgeous range of handmade gifts and accessories, all by British creatives and made with love. As well as stocking their own-brand pieces, you can expect pieces by some of my favourite indie designers, like Crown And Glory, Ladybird Likes and Kate Rowland. I’ve hand-picked a selection of items that I genuinely want for myself, and that all make me smile. I can’t wait to give them to one of you…
A dino-tastic pink laser-cut triceratops necklace by Designosaur. Rawr!
An adorable wooden koala bear brooch by Ginger Pickle (I think it’ll look great on a denim jacket!)
A turquoise chevron Moleskine notebook by Finest Imaginary – perfect for scribbling down ideas, plans and to-do lists
I couldn’t host a giveaway without some ace hair candy – so you’ll bag a gold glitter bow by Crown and Glory
Three mini-prints by Ginger Pickle featuring positive and inspirational quotes
A friendship card that was just made for popping in the post to your BFF as a sweet snail mail surprise
All of these goodies will come in a soft canvas Be Cheerful tote by Alphabet Bags
The rules: To be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do leave a comment below – be sure to include your email address so that I know how to contact you! I’ll pick a winner at random on Sunday at 6pm, and the contest will run from now until then. If you think your girl gang might like the sound of these prizes, feel free to spread the word on Twitter! This giveaway is open to UK entrants only this time (but I will look at the logistics of an international contest next time).
There’s a really great mix of items by Ginger Pickle and the designers that they stock – maybe you’ll even discover a new-to-you brand that you’ll want to see more from! Don’t forget you can keep up to date with the latest Ginger Pickle news on Facebook.
Sound good? I almost want to enter myself!
Good luck everyone and if you haven’t joined me over on Pinterest yet, come say hi!
Feeling inspired and grateful,
