I have an aunt is a great fan of giveaways and competitions. I remember how she would hand me a competition entry form, saying “Can you come up for a catchy slogan for why you love shopping at Jusco? Your dad could win a car!” Maybe she’s a lucky star, as my parents have won a trip to Hong Kong and a TV in the past. Not through a catchy slogan I came up with though, so I can’t take any credit!
Anyway, the reason I’m telling you this story is because I’m hosting a giveaway on the blog, in conjunction with CSN Stores. Who is CSN Stores, you ask? Well, they are an e-commerce company comprising of over 200+ online stores. And they sell everything from a modern platform bed to a pretty cake stand! Basically, if you’re doing a spot of shopping for the home, I bet you’d be able to find what you wanted on their site. In fact, you’d probably find a lot of other things you want but don’t actually need…
Like me. I love wandering around homeware stores – spending time in such places in truly one of my favourite things to do in my free time. CSN Stores is similar. I don’t really want to admit how much time I spent browsing through their site and finding things I *wish* I had in my flat…
This beautiful china cake stand – I love the painted flowers on this, and I think it would be a great way to display cakes or muffins on the dining table. Things always look so much better when presented well, don’t you think?
Krups Citz Nespresso coffee machine – I’ve got a few friends who own one, and they say the coffee is surprisingly good and the machine is a breeze to use. An added plus is how it’d match the colour of my beloved KitchenAid stand mixer!
Le Creuset stoneware soup bowls – it would be so nice to serve soup in these, and think about what good props they’d make!
Zak 2 piece helping hands salad server set – they come in a range of vibrant colours, but red is by far my favourite.
Hyder day bed – I didn’t even know such things existed! This would be perfect for my post-lunch weekend naps… a bit pointless yes, but since this is a wishlist (as opposed to an actual shopping list), I figure I can get away with wanting a day bed for my living room.
Chicago metallic 12 cup dainty daisy cupcake pan – a girl can never have too many cupcake pans, and this one is one of the prettiest ones I’ve seen. These would be perfect for a girly tea party, they’re so cute!
But enough of me prattling on, because you probably want to know more about this giveaway. Thanks to CSN Stores, I will be giving away a $75/£50 gift certificate to one lucky reader – this gift certificate can be used to buy anything from their website! You could get yourself a daisy cupcake pan of your own (or something else, if cute cupcakes aren’t your thing).
