Happy 3rd Birthday rachelphipps.com! (+ Hobbs Jewellery Birthday Giveaway)

Last night just before I went to sleep I realised that we bloggers are super lucky as we get two birthdays a year, and only on one of them we'll ever be unhappy about the passing of another year. Today, rachelphipps.com is celebrating its 3rd birthday! Three years ago to the day I remember sitting down at my desk at boarding school and writing my first ever post about Benefit's Coralista blusher. Both my blog and I have come a very long way since that day, and we've had the opportunity to meet some amazing people, go some amazing places and do some amazing things and I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all of you, my readers without whom none of it would have been possible!

Chocolate cupcake from The Primrose Bakery. They only have two locations (Primrose Hill and Covent Garden) but they are sold all over London - much tastier and much cheaper than getting cupcakes from Hummingbird!

To thank you all, when I was at the Hobbs sample sale on Brick Lane last week I mentioned that I'd picked up myself some blog birthday presents, and a few little pieces for you guys so you can share in the birthday gift giving too! I have three beautiful pieces of jewellery for you guys to win, so three of my lucky readers can be winners! 
giveaway
The shoe pendant is on a long chain, has beautiful detailing and retailed at £45. The bow necklace is on a short chain and retailed at £49. The bracelet was made my Foxgloves London for Hobbs Limited Edition with 14CT gold plating, leather and freshwater pearls, and retailed at £89. Each one is a bit different so hopefully there is something here for everyone!

To enter, you need to be following this blog though either Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin' (I will be checking this, not because I like catching people out, but because I want it to be fair on everyone) and leave a comment on this post telling me which of the two necklaces or the bracelet you'd like to win! The pieces will be allocated in the order of who emails me back first if your first choice has already been chosen. For extra entries you can 'Like' rachelphipps.com on Facebook or Tweet about this giveaway (but remember to use the hashtag #birthdayhobbs and leave your Twitter handle in your comment!)


The giveaway ends on February 12th, and I'll be announcing the winners on Twitter and contacting them via email, so make sure you leave your email addresses in the comments so I can contact you!

  5. Oh, gosh, three years?! How is this happening? Time is running away with us! And I've not seen you in forever, either, to which I strongly object.

    Happy blog birthday, sweetie, and by the way, that there shoe necklace is beautiful :)

    And... I sort of think you know my email address :)

  6. I would be rather worried if I did not know your email address by now!

    Also, who's fault is that! I'm not the one who moved half way around the world! *giggle at private joke* - hopefully you'll be back in time so I can see you!
