Bookworld GIVE AWAY

This post is supported by Bookworld.

Fathers Day is just around the corner. I'm not kidding. It's on September 7. 
Recently I have been wondering what it is in September that I am meant to remember, and the only thing that seemed important enough to stick in my memory bank was that my sister is due to give birth (obviously, very important hence forgetting all other events!). Forget my wedding anniversary or fathers day.

So, for those who have also forgotten - this is a give away with you in mind.

It's not just for the forgetful of Fathers Day though. It's also for the fatherless,  the general book worms out there and also those who simply like entering competitions online. Let's be honest, who doesn't like entering competitions. 

What is in the prize pack??

The prize pack is worth $130 (an easy way to become Dads favourite child this year) and includes the following books:-

Emporium & Uniqlo

When people started to bang on about Emporium opening in the city, I had no idea what they were talking about.

I thought it was something to do with Myer. Isn't that what their instore magazine is called? Maybe not, I don't know. 

Back in the day, I used to be cool guys. I knew everything about the city. Now, I'm an old lady in the suburbs who grumbles about either having to drive or catch the train into the city.

I put the word out on my Facebook page that I was in the market for a new puffy jacket and the overwhelming response of  'you need uniqlo' was enough to make me trek into the city on a Monday morning in search of this amazing uniqlo store. 

Emporium is confusing. It's huge. So many awesome stores, so many empty stores. 

I needed to ask for a map. See, I am an old lady in the suburbs who needs a map when shopping.  

I found Uniqlo quickly, tried on my jacket, paid and got the heck out of there. It was packed. Nelly was yelling and trying to grab everything with her grubby mitts. 

I love her dearly but shopping with her is really no fun. No fun at all. 

Top Shop was calling my name, as was H&M outside but I had parked in a 1 hour spot up on Russel Street instead of mortgaging my house for CBD secure parking, so I had to hustle and hustle I did

Of course, there is always an exception to be made when hustling, and it's usually in the form of burgers. 

I've never heard of Charlie & Co before but the classic burger that I had was pretty good. Maybe not $11.50 good, but $8 good. 

It was messy to eat and I contemplated using a knife and fork but I was hustling after all and when hustling there is no time to be lady like. 

For those with prams or needing disability access, they have 3 or 4 lifts in a row which is an improvement on any shopping centre that I've ever been to.  The lifts all came quickly and were relatively spacious. 

I need to go back, alone. That means you, Nelly. You stay home. 

I prefer to shop alone than with anyone else. I am not that much of a browser and I am the type to walk in, scan items and walk out again. 

I can always count on my readers to point me in the right direction. This jacket really is great.

It's so warm, but so light. How is such magical warming power possible in such a light jacket?! HOW. I love showing people how it folds into a tiny little bag, like magic. 

I'm going to get the long version too I think. 

I bought it mainly to wear with exercise clothes when I take Nelly for a walk early morning in order to stop me from freezing to death but I'm wearing it nearly every day, usually with a just a t shirt underneath.

If I wear it indoors (as in this photo) I am absolutely roasting.

So, have you been to Emporium? Do you love Uniqlo?

The Healthy Mummy - Giveaway (CLOSED)

This is a sponsored giveaway. 

I am giving away three (3) memberships to The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge - valued at $49.95 each!

Before we get into the details, a note from me: Please do not feel pressured to lose weight after giving birth. Take time to enjoy your new child and only decide to lose weight if that is what you want, not what anybody else wants or because you feel pressure from society and only begin when you feel comfortable to do this. 

I gained 40kg when I was pregnant and it took me 12 months to lose it. I'm really glad that I didn't put pressure on myself during this time. 

Now, the giveaway details:

Designed in conjunction with the best nutritionists, postnatal exercise physiologists, midwives, and most importantly, mums. 
This tailored, safe and affordable program can easily fit into any mum’s busy routine. The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge is the perfect way for mums to lose weight, get fit and healthy, and support each other along the way.

- A focus on a balanced and healthy diet – it does not cut out any food groups.
