CSN Stores giveaway!

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ˜€

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/ยฃ50 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).

  1. Love your aunt! I love lucky people. I want to grow up to be one some day!

    On to business… I would love to get a few rolls of the adorable paintable beadboard wallpaper by Graham & Brown. With this much to spend, I would even throw in a roll of another of the paintable rolls, with a different design!

  2. I love the Ashton Sutton Retro Wall Clock in Pure White – TY9118216w, it’s super awesome and only $14! I also love the Sea Gull Lighting – 65035-777 – Metropolis Pendant in Copper Revival with a Satin Etched Glass Shade.

  3. I need a wall clock to replace the one that stopped working a few months back. I like the Howard Miller Cyrus Quartz Wall Clock.

  4. I’d use it to buy some Rachel Ray Bakeware.
    Thanks for the chance to enter!

  5. Fabulous Site! I have spent faaaar too long dreaming on that site!
    I first thought a lovely Jungle Friends wall clock for the nursery, nothing worse than been woken up by baby screams and not knowing if its feedtime. Then I fancied a 2lb loaf tin – have a thing for bread baking at mo.

    Best of all, I decided it’d be a ME treat, and it would have to be a Le Creuset Cast Iron Oval Casserole in Almond. It’d be heavy as anything even when empty and I’d show it off PERMANENTLY on the hob. Besides, its too heavy to keep putting it in, pulling it out of cupboard!

  6. Oh wow there’s so much to browse through! I know it sounds boring but I’d probably buy a tagine hehehe I LOOOOVE moroccan cuisine and I try and simulate tagines by slow cooking but it’s never the same is it??

    Oh and consider yourself stumbled ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Oh my! I might have to put a few quid extra to it but I think I’d buy an Emile Henry tagine. I’m so pleased I haven’t missed the deadline for this as I was thinking as I started reading the post that I would be too late.

    I only ever hear about CSN on food blogs… I don’t understand why they don’t advertise elsewhere as their site is very good.

  8. Thanks for all the entries, everyone! The giveaway has now closed, I will be picking a winner at random – results will be announced here shortly. Thank you for your patience! ๐Ÿ™‚
