Moments That Mattered & Win An iPad Mini!!



Can you believe we are already half way through the first month of 2014? I can even believe it's 2014 for a start and it still feels very strange writing it down on paper never mind the countless amount of times I've have to scribble the date out!

2013 has been an exciting and memorable year for me. In April it was Amelia's 1st birthday which was such a lovely day yet sad at the same time because she was no longer my little baby, she was growing so fast under my eyes and I couldn't believe it. We threw her a little birthday party which I enjoyed planning very much. In November we went on our second family holiday and survived a 9 hour flight and 4 hour transfer to the resort with a toddler. I'd say that was an achievement and a half! It was such a memorable holiday as we got to spend time together as a family, the longest time since Amelia was born. These are the two moments that stand out the most to me from 2013 and I'm looking forward to seeing what 2014 brings. 

Today I have an exciting prize draw for you all! If you are a blogger keep reading...

How would you like to win an iPad Mini? Today I have teamed up with Lloyds bank to give away an iPad Mini to one lucky winner!!

This could be a family holiday, learning a new skill, meeting someone special the options are endless as long as it's something that happened in 2013 and that really affected your life for the good. Don't forget to include photos and make it stand out as much as possible! We will then be choosing the winner and the chosen winner will receive an iPad Mini worth £249 how amazing is that?!!
