#MyLimeBoots Turns 1
My, how time flies! It has been a whole year since I started blogging about life, grooming and fashion. And what a year it’s been. Boundaries have not only been pushed, but downright flattened and battered.
That’s a good thing. A very good thing. I have learnt tons about myself, done things I thought I would never do. More importantly, I have confronted issues in my life that, in another time and place, I would have conveniently avoided. Like my use of drugs and my deliverance from that evil.
And your response and constant encouragement through this process has spurred me on to even greater things. It is heartening to know that readers are touched by what I write, even if it’s a definite no to a pink pair of pants. I think the comment was “No. Just no.”
So in true My Lime Boots style, I would like to spend the next five days leading up to the big blog birthday on Thursday 22 October 2015, looking back at past posts. It is my hope that you will once again be inspired by these posts, just as I was when writing them, and continue to be when reading them.
As part of this blogging journey I have made many great friends who want to celebrate this birthday with me. So, starting today, Sunday 18 October 2015, MLB will be giving away a fragrance a day. Yip, great I know! Watch out for daily posts on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, starting today, and ensure you are in the running. MLB loves to share happiness!
Seriously, there’s still more?
We have so many more goodies to giveaway, that’s what an MLB birthday is all about. So, on Thursday 22 October 2015, two readers who engage with the blog over this birthday week, will win hampers of great goodies. One for a Joburg based reader and one for a reader based anywhere in South Africa.
Goodies include a fashion voucher from Edgars, a bow tie from the newly released Dandy AF collection by Alan Foley, a Bonafide Beards or Face kit, the newly released Balmain Homme fragrance, a cut, style and treatment with champaign from Mel Taylor Hair, a half day spa package full of spoils from Urban Bliss Day Spa and a two hour personal styling and shopping session with Daniella from Shopology. Geesh, try and say all that on one breath!
This week I have over R12 000 worth of goodies to giveaway to my wonderful readers. I am so happy for you!
What do you need to do?
Join the MLB blog mailing list below so that we can continue to share great posts with each other. Then in the comments section of this post, wish MLB a happy birthday. Share your creativity and originality, perhaps also how certain posts have spoken to you. At the end of your comment please indicate “Jhb” or “SA”.
Want additional chances to win these goodies? Ok, lets do this.
Watch out each day from Monday for posts on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter where I reflect on past blog posts. Then regram, share and retweet these social media posts using the hashtag #MLBturns1, so I can pickup your support, together with a birthday wish for MLB. Again please indicate in your response “Jhb” or “SA”.
I may also have another thing or two up my birthday sleeve, so ensure you stay glued to all MLB’s social channels this week!
Lastly, and most importantly, I praise the Lord and give thanks to Him for the grace and mercy He has bestowed upon me, on this blog journey. The strength of character built up in me over this year, could not have been achieved through any other means.
Terms and conditions
All giveaways are open to South African residents only, living in South Africa. The Joburg hamper is only available to readers living in the greater Gauteng area who are available to utilise the goodies in Joburg.
