Today is my birthday so I'll be taking the day off from my normal Magpie Monday posts, but I did want to put up the linky because despite the Easter holidays I'm sure some of you die-hard bargain hunters have probably written posts!
I also wanted to let you in on the fact that I'm planning a twitter party. I'm really hoping for your support as we'll be talking about all things second-hand. The #prelovedparty (working title!) will hopefully encourage newbies to dip their toe into the world of charity shops and car boot sales, and I'm sure together we have tonnes of tips; hints and success stories to share. Are you passionate about the benefits of re-use and re-cycling? Do you love doing up old junk shop finds, or are you crafty enough to upcycle something? Can you share pictures or blog posts? I'd love you come along.
I have a few more details to work out, but look out for announcements on date and time. I also need a couple of volunteers to help out when I inevitably get thrown in Twitter Jail for repetitive hash-tag usage!
What do you think? Are you in?
In other news, I was thrilled and quite a bit amazed to find I've been shortlisted for a Bloggers in Brilliance award. Thank you so much to those that nominated me.
I don't like to ask for votes, but as I'm already shortlisted in the 'Style' category, if would be lovely if you could vote for me here. So if you think you can be stylish on a shoe-string, chic in a jumble sale dress and want to poke consumerism in the eye, then please vote!
I've also been nominated for the MADs, so if you want to put me up for one of their categories too, I really would love you long time.
