Lucky Me! - Giveaway Wins

February has been a very lucky and pleasant month for my blogging life. :)
I have won not one, but two giveaways!
The prizes are very thoughtful and unique and they are from two of my favorite bloggers, so I am even more glad I've won. :D

a different kind of winner..;p
She looks so healthy and happy!

First one is a dining etiquette book from Kim  (A very sweet blog)'s giveaway!
It was a very unique and whimsical giveaway, and I was very happy to receive this mini sized book.
(Seriously, I love my kindle and haven't been without it ever since, but the feeling of holding a real book is not something my kindle can give to me.)

This book has answered some of the questions I had about formal dining.
I was wondering about which hand I should be holding a fork with when I am using a knife and eating at the same time. I usually use my right hand since I am right-handed, but my mom taught me that it is correct to use my left side when I was young!
This book tells me that both ways are fine. Using right hand is the American way and the Continental way is the opposite! :)

This book is nicely illustrated.
clears up for a lot of mysteries for me. :D

Next prize I received is from talented Rowena  (rolala loves).
She sent me The Black Knight  polish from Butter London!
This was on my holiday shopping wish list but I never actually got round to buying it, so guess how excited I was to have won this! :)
It is hands-down the prettiest glitter polish I've ever seen.
I am gladly willing to undertake the pain of removing this glittler polish. Anytime! ;p

She sent a sweet card along.
And isn't her business card pretty? :)
Rowena has an awesome etsy shop featuring beautiful original photographs.

Many thanks to you, Kim  & Rowena !
I'd invite you to visit these sweet and generous ladies' blogs. :)

I hope everyone is having fun blogging and making lots of great friends as I am.
Happy weekend! :D

I appreciate you clearing up that it's okay to hold your fork in either hand while you're also holding knife. I guess I've been doing it the "Continental" way lol. And I'm looking forward to seeing that polish on you! With your lucky run you should be playing the lottery ;)

  40. thank you, Oreleona. ^-^

  41. Congrats Lena! The etiquette book looks like an interesting read - I wouldn't mind picking up a copy of that for myself and brushing up my table manners a bit :P

    And Dark Knight looks gorgeous! I've heard such great things about Butter London polishes and have wanted to try them for so long. They're a bit more than I would like to pay for a polish though ><

  42. Hello Sweetie,

    Just wanted to thank you for having such an inspirational blog. Hope you have an amazing week full of lots of beautiful things.
    Feel free to drop past my blog if you have time =)

    -Mia xoxo

  43. thanks for stopping by and for your kind words!

  44. thank,Rinny :)
    i am still reading this book. it is quite humorous, too!
    totally agree BL price is a little steep. they often have nice deals and it is a little less than some of the higher-end brands, though. i am planning to do a NOTD with this shade soon. :)

  45. Congrats! That book seems pretty intriguing! Definitely suits you.

  46. thank you, Feelo!

    i am know it is not the etiquette for the book but i am reading it little by little in bathroom. xD
    i love how it is useful and fun to read. the author definitely has humour. :)

  47. It's one of those books I'd like to read when I had spare time too. I love those etiquette for women posts on tumblr. haha

  48. lol. i should look for those posts! :)
