I'm very almost at 2000 followers, and in celebration I'm hosting a weekend of giveaways including a selection of goodies from some of my favourite brands. We're kicking things off this evening with a seaside-y giveaway; the winner will receive a perfectly kooky Vintage Style Me 'Puffin Beach' skirt - I happen to have one, and it's amazing! - and a pair of adorable mermaid collar clips from The Cookie Button.
When I first started Briar Rose (or Stolen Rose, as it was in the early days - kudos to anyone who remembers that!) it was a simply a little creative outlet to get me through the tricky first few months at university, and in all honesty I never expected anyone to read it. Between the friends I've made, the amazing opportunities that have come my way, the fantastic brands I've come to know and work with, and the wonderfully warm and supportive feedback I receive from my readers on a daily basis, Briar Rose has become an integral part of my life. I wish there was a way for me to thank each and every person who reads my blog, because between you all, you truly have changed my life for the better. That may be achingly cliche, but I blooming well mean it!
