WIN! £275 Designer bag from Juicy Couture!

17 Sep

OMG. This bag is heaven on straps

See, I told you that my next comp would blow your cotton socks off!

Coco Marie my favourite fashion shop in Amersham, which also happens to have the most lovely staff on the entire planet, has kindly offered this handbag to a Muddy Stilettos reader.

Shall I tell you a bit about it? Well. It’s big. Perfect for magazines, baby wipes, dossiers, morning newspapers and whichever kitchen sink you need to take with you to work or play. It’s suede with leather base, tassle and straps. Juicy calls the colour grapefruit, but I think it’s acid yellow and so superfunky I do not want to give it to you!

HOW TO ENTER (I’m presuming you want it):

Do any or all of the below. Don’t forget, the more ways you enter, the more chances you have of winning.

1. Register to Muddy Stilettos by entering your email address into the ‘Register here’ tab (top right of the homepage). You’ll be entered into all Muddy Stilettos competitions, plus you will receive my electrifyingly useful posts straight to your in box. You can unsubscribe at any time.

Cassius wants to draw this prize, so that means the fourth one out of the hat is the winner 30 September. Sorry, but what can I do? The child likes to eat paper.

WIN! Gorgeous £140 new season leather slouch bag from Mint Velvet

6 Sep

Work that bag, lady.

Need another handbag to see you through the autumn?

What a daft question. Of course you do. Especially when it’s slouchy and zippy and soft 100%  leather and suede and all round gotta-have-it gorgeous like this one from my superfave store Mint Velvet.

It’s also available in a cool slate grey (see below) which I love just as much.  If you win the comp, I’m happy to provide in either colour. It depends on stock levels though, so don’t kill me if I can’t get the one you prefer! You have to admit, they’re both goddam beautiful.

Velvet Brown posh polo rug winner – last call!

14 Aug

That lovely luxe picnic polo rug with leather holder from Velvet Brown is burning a hole in my entrance hall cupboard. If anyone knows Jess Garmon Jones please tell her to get in touch to claim her lovely prize. I’ll wait another week and then someone else will get the chance to have a dry bum  instead.

While I’m here I should also say congrats to Velvet Brown on their gorgeously-appointed new shop in Long Crendon (above), near to Thame. Combining floristry and interiorsy bits, it has a lovely vibe and some lovely tit-bits – perfect for pressies or for bits of interest around house. Nothing seriously expensive either. Had a sneaky peak and took lots of pics. Nicely done, don’t you think?

 

I love these little tea-lights. They were only a couple of quid each.

Velvet Brown, 1a The Square, Long Crendon, Bucks HP18 9AA. Tel: 01844 208261. Please note: closed Monday and Sunday.

Want to WIN the ultimate summer accessory? Too right!

3 Jul

Muddy Stilettos is the blog that just keeps on giving! Yes, mes amis, I have another lovely prize for you to win today.

If you can imagine for a second a summer without rain, sleet and hurricanes (close your eyes and just dream), you will know that a luxury picnic blanket is essential for festivals, summer concerts, village fetes, polo events (because we go to so many!) and, er, garden picnics.

So lucky us that Velvet Brown, fine purveyors of lovely interiorsy things, have offered Muddy Stilettos readers a gorgeous fringed polo picnic blanket. It’s 145 x 183 cm, and comes in a cottage style wool check with colours of peat, moss and heather (otherwise known as brown, green and pink). There is a waterproof backing (see pic below), and it can be neatly packed away and carried with the separate leather carrier. Usually £89. For you, utterly free!

TO ENTER, tis peasy. Here’s what to do:

1. Subscribe to my superduper blog by entering your email address into the ‘Register here!’ tab (top right of the homepage). You’ll be entered into all Muddy Stilettos competitions (I run a lot of them), plus you will receive my electrifyingly useful posts straight to your in box. You can unsubscribe at any time.

2. Follow me on Twitter @muddystiletto by following the link here AND follow Velvet Brown @VelvetBrown by following the link here – tweet ‘muddy’ to Velvet Brown so I know it’s for the comp.

3. ‘Like’ Muddy Stilettos on Facebook by following the link here

Do all three and you’ve tripled your odds! By the way, if you’re already doing the above you’ll automatically be entered into the comp.

AND THE WINNER IS…. Cassius hasn’t nibbled, scrunched or tipped tombola names all over the floor for a while so it’s his turn to pick the winner. Carnage will commence on 31 July.

You lucky lot! How about winning a family ticket to Gifford’s Circus?

If you saw my post yesterday on What’s On this week, you’ll know how excited I am about Gifford’s Circus, a brilliant Cotswold-based company that tours around Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire.

WIN family tickets to Wilderness Festival! Eeeek!

18 Jun

Whoopee! The lovely organisers of Wilderness saw my post on festivals last week, and have just called to offer Muddy Stilettos readers a family ticket (2 kids, 2 adults) with camping worth £260 for Wilderness on the 10th-12th August in Cornbury, Oxfordshire.

We’ll take those, thank you very much!


What’s on at Wilderness? Bleedin everything! A masked ball, live music from Wilco and Spiritualised, yoga, talks from The Idler Academy and Granta, hot tubs, cool cafes and bookshops, and a general superfunk of a weekend. If you’re taking kids, trust me – they will wet themselves with excitement at this festival (hmmm, maybe not such a good thing?). Bushcraft, cricket, horseriding, cabaret, fly fishing, zumba, jewellery making, gardening, theatre…. you name it, it’s there. Plus it’s local, so no need to trudge off to the Isle of Wight or Dorset or Suffolk in search of your festival kicks. I am definitely, absolutely, without a shadow of a doubt going. Want to come too?
