No vlog this time! Just pictures because although I got a huge lovely response, this week is CRAZY with coursework and working and yep. And also my vlogs are special moments where you can finally see my face  and hear my English accent. Right moving on...

I've had a bit of a crazy few weeks where I've been winning competitions  Like many bloggers, I enter a lot of giveaways but I never seem to win any apart from the occasional few. Well, within a week, I won two giveaways which was a lovely surprise and nice end to the cold winter as we entered March.

- Geek Girl by Holly Smale - As you may not know (I didn't), Holly was holding a giveaway on Twitter of a signed copy of her debut book (which I have already read, here's my review) to the first person to tweet her a picture of her book in a bookshop. Unknowingly I saw her book a couple of days before release when I was in my local Waterstones, tweeted the picture and sure enough, I was being told I had won a signed copy of her book! I read this through Netgalley so it was lovely to now have a hardcover of the book. Thank you again Holly!

- British Baking in 2012 published by - I won this through a giveaway over at Ginger Ecstasy, a fashion blog I follow. I love cooking and baking but I'm not that great at it and as I need to collect some cook books for university, I thought this seemed like a great giveaway to enter. I had a look at the website which has some great recipes that I may HAVE to try. So watch this space for some baking! Thank you to Rebecca for that!

Rebecca also included a little note on GORGEOUS Cath Kidston writing paper, such a lovely token! 

What did you receive this week? 


  1. Aw, what a lovely haul! Geek Girl is a great book, I have an ARC copy though so I don't have that gorgeous hardback you have. Congrats on winning the baking stuff, that little note is so nice! :)

  2. Lucky you, I am dying to get my hands on a copy of Geek Girl. I read a sample online and really enjoyed it :D

  3. I love Geek Girl and it's totally awesome that you got a signed copy! Lovely haul, Rebecca, and well done for winning the giveaway! :)

  4. I've heard that Geek Girl is amazing! I hope you enjoy it! :D
