3 years blog-anniversary!

3years

On June 28th, I will be celebrating my 3 years blog-anniversary and to celebrate the occasion I want to hold a huge giveaway, starting now! Today is a special day because, not only is it 1 month before the big day, it’s also my first wedding anniversary and my daughter turned 1 month yesterday, so I say it’s three good reasons to celebrate!

I want the party to be huge, and to do so, we need a huge prize right? Here are the details!

There will be 3 winners, with potential of a 4th one!

1st prize winners gets a 20$ shopping spree on Book Depository.

2nd prize winner gets a 15$ shopping spree on Book Depository.

3rd prize winner gets a 10$ shopping spree on Book Depository.

Now if I reach 500 entries (not 500 entrants) on the Rafflecopter form, I will add a 4th winner and that person will also get a 10$ shopping spree on Book Depository.

*UPDATE*

We reached 500 entries so there will be a 4th winner who gets a 10$ shopping spree on Book Depository.


Entering will be super easy!

Just fill the Rafflecopter form below and you’re in!

You don’t need to be a follower to enter & because I want this giveaway to be BIG there will be more ways to earn extra entry than usual.

Also, you might have noticed you can earn +5 entries by purchasing via my Book Depository affiliate link. No purchase necessary, don’t worry! But I am financing the blog & giveaways (including this one!) with my book depository affiliation and I thought it would only make sense to give a little extra chance to those who contributed. Your purchase placed since April 13th, 2012 are eligible.

buy the book from The Book Depository, free delivery

Open Internationally (where BD ships for free)

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Giveaway ends June 28th, 2012.

    How can I possibly narrow it down to one thing I like about your blog? Everything about it is just awesome. Hence the reason I keep returning. :)

    My four year blogoversary is coming up in June, too. Where the heck has the time went? Maybe it's because for the first few years, I wasn't doing too much on my blog, but really, it seems like I just started it yesterday...Cliche, I know. ;)

    Keep up the great work--and congrats on your anniversary and baby girl's first month "bday" :)

    Enjoy!
