OK so we’ve passed Blue Monday and now 2017 is only going to grow from strength to strength – yes? This week we’re sharing competitions we’ve spotted; guest blogger excitement, wedding news and even some earlybird Valentine’s pressies. You’re welcome.
Anyone else still feeling in need for a bit of a January pick-up? We have spotted a few competitions this week that we reckon might be worth a wee entry (but shh don’t tell everyone or they’ll all enter).
To celebrate the 10th anniversary (how is that possible?) of JK Rowling completing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in room 552, the Balmoral Hotel are offering one lucky winner the most amazing 2 night stay including breakfast, Afternoon Tea at Palm Court, dinner at Hadrian’s Brasserie, a spa treatment, an owl (mascot not real!) and tickets for the Edinburgh Potter trail tour. This is quite literally a magical prize. Pop on over to their Facebook page to enter and if you win, remember you need to take a friend…
Or how about some gin? (always a good idea). Edinburgh Gin are offering you the chance to win a bottle. It’s easy you just have to get your entries in by the end of the month. And if you win share it with your favourites…
And for film buffs what could be better than winning tickets to the the opening Gala of the Glasgow Film Festival? We have already clocked the David Tennant film which sounds superb…
Bring on the Bloggers
Did you spot our new ace expert Blogger Team? We have been overwhelmed by the excitement level as these gals take to our humble little blogging stage. Seriously their stories, ideas and sheer talent are going to rock your worlds. First up, this week is the uber-creative Gemma from Planet Flowers. Trust us, you are not going to want to miss this…
Newly engaged, or newly energised to progress your wedding plans? If you’re still on the hunt for the perfect space to hold your wedding then why not pop along to two of Edinburgh’s most special and unique wedding venues?
Both Mansfield Traquair and The Signet Library are throwing their doors open this Sunday, 22nd January to brides and grooms who are after their perfect wedding venue. Spots to visit for sure.
Lastly we have already spied some top-notch Valentines’ Gifts (check us!). L-R we are swooning over these Klippan Yllefabrik throws, available from one of our favourite Scandi shops Spektakulär (remember winter is all about snuggles).
And how cute are these snack pots from Paperchase (perfect for maximising yummy snacks)?
Or you could book in for a Drive Through Movie through Itison (it’s the stuff top dates are made of!)
Let the weekend begin… Alie x
