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
