Super Awesome OMG Giveaway Week (Day Five)

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!! YAYYYYY!!!! I AM SO EXCITED!!!! PRESENTS AND CAKE AND WINE AND A DAY OFF WOOHOO!!! I have such a good day planned – I’m off to get my hair did this morning, then hopping on a train to that London to meet my lovely friend Anne for some kind of awesome lunch and then an afternoon pottering around Kensington Palace. Have you been to the Enchanted Palace yet? I’ve wanted to go for aaages. Don’t go today though, as I want to have it all to myself, okay?

And then, I don’t know, some kind of public drunkenness, probably. Sounds like a plan, right? Anyway, I’ll be back a little later with today’s Friday Frocks post (giveaway week or not, I couldn’t bear to miss a week) but here’s today’s…

Today’s sponsor, Debenhams, is one of my favourite shops. I love Debbos. One of my favourite things about where I work is the big one 5 minutes walk from the office. Although I can spend hours in there, which is dangerous when your lunch hour is only, well, an hour. You know all my awesome Warehouse dresses that I’m like ‘Yeah, this was 50p…’ – they’re ALWAYS from Debenhams. The concessions sales, especially, seem to be extra amazing – and they always have my size left! I’m also a bit of a Red Herring fiend – they’ve had so many 50s silhouettes recently, I’ve been having sensory overload. Want. Them. All.


Today, Debenhams have given me a £50 voucher to share with one of you lucky people. And, with sales on all over the shop, this will go far. Although, I’d probably buy some gorgeous undies, rather than a dress – Ted Baker has launched these gorgeous sets to celebrate the first birthday of B by Ted Baker. Aren’t they pretty?

  1. Aww HAPPY BIRTHDAY you adorable creature!

    and I would buy some sexy undies too I think, too many boring black sets in my drawer atm. (who am I kidding, you have my email obviously!)

  2. Happy Birthday! I'm sure you'll celebrate it most excellently :)
    I have a bit of a weakness for pretty lingerie so if I won this I'd be straight down there buying a Frost French Floozie set - possibly the one with bunnies on!
    My e-mail's dichohecho [at] gmail [dot] com and I follow you via Google (and Twitter!)
    Sarah :)

  3. Happy birthday!
    A dress or nice undies - what a conundrum! Debenhams are one of the few places that do my cup size though, so probably the latter.
    My e-mail's jessicaeleri (at) gmail (dot) com and I follow you via Google!
    Ps - I tweeted too :)

  4. Yya I want to win! I never, ever go to Debenhams and I don't really know why? So i should clearly win to change my habits ;)

    Happy Birthday cutie face! Yay for public drunkenness xxx


    I'm so jealous. I wish mine was here.

    Sounds like a fab day planned though!

    If I won I'd buy a new LBD - I have none that fit any more, and if they have them 50's stylee by Red Herring so much the better!



    Great giveaway, once again ;) I've lost a ton (not literally) of weight recently, and so my underwear draw is looking a little "saggy" - would love £50 to indulge in some new boulder holders and (not-so) fat pants!

    Have a great day!

  7. Happy birthday!!

    I would like to go for a bra fitting and spend the money on some lovely new underwear sets, I am in desperate need.

    I follow on GFC and my email is


  8. ooh i love debenhams too :) I'm following on bloglovin. If I won I'd be tempted to spend it on dresses but what I really need is new jeans!

  9. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Hope you have a wonderful day and get very drunk!

    Hmmm, either dress or undies, Debenhams actually do my bra size, so I may be tempted there!
