Win with Hello Pretty and Bvbblegvm! (Closed)

We have to confess something: We're not designers ourselves. We prefer to spend our times swooning over the gorgeous things other people make. That's why we get a little giddy when we see things like these delicious strawberries and cream inspired ribbons from Bvbblegvm.
 

They're a set of vector ribbons  - that means that you get a file usable in any number of design programs with lots of different banners, ribbons, and little extras for you to use any way you like. So, even if you're more finger painting than fine art, you can create beautiful things using these. And, designers, you'll know exactly what to do. So, do you want 'em? Course you do. Here's how:

Entries close at midnight on Thursday 27th June. Please note that Hello Pretty's standard competition Ts and Cs apply.
* Please note that only one tweet per person will be counted.

A Friday probably doesn't get much better than this

I'll be honest - I wasn't at my best this morning. At noon I was still in my PJs, staring with tears in my eyes at my inbox, and on my 3rd cup of coffee.

And then, something amazing happened. My tears of anguish turned to tears of joy. Because this was brought right up to my door by what I can only assume was an angel:

That is right. A box of cupcakes. Twelve, to be specific.

Had I been in a more presentable state (read: looking less like I might be a skollie) I would have given her an enormous hug. And then I would have caught her and kept her in my kitchen forever. Ok, I don't mean that really. I'm not usually that creepy.

It was beautifully packaged with great attention to detail, and complete with beautiful little heart-handled spoons and the hand-written note above.

Turns out that there was in fact an answer to the question "Why?" surrounding this cakescapade. Cupcake Richard has a campaign called Cake Bomb. How is works is, you nominate someone who you feel makes Cape Town a little bit nicer, with a little motivation, and Lee nominated me!

I'm so touched, and so excited. This is such a neat, good-vibe campaign.

And for anyone wondering, those cupcakes are as good as they look. You should keep an eye on Cupcake Richard and if you know someone who you believes makes Cape Town a little bit nicer, go on and nominate them.

Thank you Cupcake Richard, and thank you Lee <3

(I had an espresso with my cupcake - and for anyone wondering, my espresso cup is from Cabo Collaboration.)

Winner of the tjou-tjou letterpress print

Two weeks ago we announced a giveaway that anyone subscribed to our newsletter would automatically be entered into.

The prize was a limited edition A5 letterpress print from a personally beloved designer of ours called tjou-tjou.

We have just drawn a winner - lucky number 403 - and I'm really excited about her name popping up, because she's been subscribed to our newsletter and supporting us since June last year.

Thanks for the support, Kerry! This print is really beautiful and we hope you love it.

We'll be doing more of these giveaways for our newsletter subscribers, so spread the word.
