Competition Wednesday: Win a Cadbury Giftset

I always struggle in the early months of the year.

This is the time of year my mental health hits rock bottom, the dark and cold has got to much and I just can't take much any more.

So with it comes blog neglect.

I'm going to try and get off my behind and blog (or well sit on behind and blog). However, I'm struggling to think of things to write about.

I got an idea the other night just as I was drifting off. It was of course gone by morning.

That said I couldn't let Wednesday go by without a competition and here's quick-firere, Instagram catch up to win some chocolates!

Happy boxing day everyone! πŸŽβ € β € How was your Christmas Day yesterday? I hope you had a good'un!β € β € This little guy is a grum and the person who made it is an anti-suicide/mental health artist ( @grumreapur ) and he scuplted this. How lovely! I've had it for a while but kept forgetting to take a photo of it. He represents enjoying each and every moment in life as “we never know when we might dance with the reaper”. What a lovely thing. Just thought I'd share it today!β € β € ——————–β € β € #BoxingDay #MentalHealth #UKBlogger #BloggersTribe #LifestyleBlogger #BloggingGals #BloggerLife #Blogger #TheHappyNow #NothingisOrdinary #ThatsDarling #DesignInspo #BBlogger #BBloggersUK #PursuePretty #PrettyLittleIiinspo #OnTheBlog #FBlogger #FBloggersUK #ProductReview #FashionBlogger #WearitLoveit #FlashesofDelight #SkincareProducts #SkincareTips #LifestyleBlog #BloggersgetSocial #ProBlogging

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey

      I’ll try and share this months as well if that helps πŸ™‚ I get the odd sub box and wondered if I should share or not – sounds like the answer is yes, I guess I worry a lot on sharing as I buy them myself and I worry people will think it’s an undisclosed advert and it’s not.
