The Gigantic Fantabulous Miss Kitty-Cat Giveaway!
I thought it was about time I had a giveaway on Miss Kitty Cat goes to town! So many of my favourite bloggers do them regularly but in the year and a bit this blog has been going I haven't given away anything. Not a thing. Tragic. So I decided to rectify that and present to you the Gigantic Fantabulous Miss Kitty-Cat Giveaway!
There are six prizes (items?) and what you need to do is leave a comment below saying which item you'd like to win and a little about what you like about this blog. Pretty simple huh? Don't worry if you haven't posted before - I'd love to hear from you!
When thinking about what I'd like to give away, I gravitated towards sharing some of my favourite things. Things I love. In some cases, things I can't live without. So I present to you the following items:
Lindt Hot chocolate:
For me, Lindt is the creme de la creme of hot chocolate. Chocolate flakes you melt with hot milk, this makes a rich unctuous drink that is perfect for the cooler weather we are starting to experience. It makes the perfect hot chocolate with a hint of bitterness to temper the sweetness. This one is milk chocolate but you can also buy dark chocolate if you'd like to try it yourself!
T2 Melbourne Breakfast Tea Bags:
It's no secret I love a good cup of tea and of the Australian producers I think T2 makes the finest tea. Melbourne breakfast is a medium flavoured balck tea with a hint of vanilla. Perfect for first thing in the morning - or anytime during the day for that matter! I decided against loose tea because the silk bags make things just a little easier. No mess, no fuss.
Sue Sylvester notecards and Kiehls Cranberry lip balm:
Like many people on the interwebs, I am a huge Glee Fan. When I came across these cards they made me laugh so much and I thought i would share them with you, my readers! The set includes 6 notecards with quotes like:
"I realize my cultural ascendance only serves to illuminate your own banality. But, face it, I’m legend. It’s happened."
"I’m gonna make it a habit to not stop and talk to students because this has been a colossal waste of my time."
"So you like show tunes. It doesn’t mean you’re gay. It just means you’re awful."
"Your hair looks like a briar patch. I keep expecting racist, animated Disney characters to pop up and start singing about living on the bayou."
And to top this prize off, I am also including a tube of Kiehls lip balm - it's one of my HG beauty products. I can't live without it and often have two or three tubes on the go. It's a "limited edition" (which means it's not available in Australia but you can buy it anytime in the US). I'm sure Sue would approve.
A leopard scarf:
There's no way we could have the inaugural giveaway on Miss Kitty-Cat without a leopard item and what better than a gorgeous scarf leading into the colder weather? This fabulous piece will jazz up any winter wardrobe - and the real benefit is that's it's huge. Massive. Perfect for wrapping yourself up in on a cold day. And everyone needs a little more leopard in their life in my opinion!
Grown vanilla and orange peel hand cream:
This - for me - is the best hand cream on the market. Better than Jurlique, better than Crabtree and Evelyn, better even than L'Occitane (although Mr Kitty prefers L'Occitane because of it's neutral smell). Grown is organic and the fragrance is incredible. It's edible. It's moreish. It's a small tube (60ml) which is perfect for your handbag or for travelling.
Elk Wooden Bird Brooch:
It's no secret I'm a huge fan of Elk Accessories and it's my great pleasure to present to you this final item: an Elk Bird Brooch. I wear mine all the time and if you are lucky enough to win it, I'm sure you will too. It's made from blackened wood and it would be perfect on a cardigan or coat. You'll become a devotee of Elk's crisp sharp design too.
So here's the deal. As mentioned above, leave a comment below stating which of the items you'd like to win and a little bit about what you like about the blog. The more creative the better :) You can enter once per day for as many items as you like (but only one entry per day full stop).
The giveaway closes next Sunday 20th February at 10pm! I'll post back here next Monday with the winners. Good luck!
Edit: will definitely post overseas - so please enter overseas readers!
