Give away!

Monday has gotten off to a slow start for me, but I've just bought some Easter eggs (as gifts! I have Border dark chocolate ginger biscuits to pacify myself). So time for a wee give-away to celebrate reaching 100 followers!

So there is a teNeues Paris city journal, Figs & Rouge geranium organic lip balm (my personal favourite), a rosemary and witch hazel facemask and a couple of postcards. Nothing extravagant, but a token of my genuine appreciation for you who actually read my sporadic postings! (Lula magazine not included, this photoshoot made a nicer backdrop that the worn pleather couch in our flat!)

To enter, you have to be a follower of my blog. Please leave your name and email address in a comment and recommend me a book or movie, you can tweet about if for an extra entry if you like, linking to this entry, I'm 'acertainsmile'.

I will pick the names out of a hat. The closing date is April 11th, two weeks from now! I will happily post internationally!


  1. Ooh! I want to enter!!! :D My email is mayonakaryoko(at)hotmail(dot)com! (It's Renate, btw!) <3 Will tweet, yo!

  2. I'd love to enter :)
    my email is saysingrid at hotmail dot com
    and I recommend you read The Millstone by Margaret Drabble, it's fantastic.

  3. please enter me zoe :), and i'm going to tweet now. a book i recommend is bonjour tristesse by francoise sagan (one of my all time faves) or i, claudius by robert graves which is hilarious (and the last book i read!)

  4. Hurray! Email is laura at unepoupee dot com. I thoroughly recommend Submarine- just released in the cinema and just beautiful!

  5. Oh enter me Zoe! and I will do a tweet as well.

    Its hard to recommend a book or film, for someone else I always find, as i could sit here and do hundreds of films, but I will go with my all time favourite book instead because I think everyone should read it, A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving

  6. Ooh exciting! I recommend The Secret History by Donna Tartt. It's perhaps the best book I've ever read, and I've read a lot of books.

  7. How lovely! and I recommend all of Haruki Murakami's books, but especially The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle :)

  8. This looks like a great giveaway, and well done on all your followers! :)
    I've just finished reading guernica by dave boling, and definitely recommend it! xx

  9. This is a lovely wee giveaway. I've forever been curious about those city journals.

    I recommend Lilja 4-ever - it's not the cheeriest film, but I liked it. Same with Garage - it's quite depressing, but beautiful at the same time (well, I thought so!)

  10. thanks for sharing - fab giveaway xxxxx

  11. Yay I want to win! Especially cos I go to Paris so often so I definitely need that journal ;)

    Book - The Virgin Suicides - Jefferey Euginedes. I've totally spelt that wrong.

  12. So very kind of you to do such a lovely giveaway. Tweeted just there, and email is
    I highly recommend The Ginger Man by J.P. Donleavy. Such a good book, very very funny and witty and intelligent, and based in Dublin in the 40's. It was initally banned in Ireland for obscenity, so you know it's gonna be good. Enjoy, if you do read, let me know what you think!

  13. I hope you haven't read them yet, so you'll have some reading to do. I like Virgina Woolf's "The waves". I'm reading "The Selected Works of T. S. Spivet" and it's beautifully illustrated. I also recommend Haruki Murakami's books.
