Win with A Thousand Paper Cranes and Hello Pretty

You guys have been asking for this for a while - and here it is. Another awesome thing for you to win, and this time there are cats involved which makes it doubly cool.

Meet the newest member of the A Thousand Paper Cranes family:

He (or she?) has two coats that he wears - a pink one and a black one - but no name. Shame.

A Thousand Paper Cranes is giving away one of her cat cushions this week, and it could be to you! Here's how you can enter:

Once a winner is chosen, they will get a cat cushion of their very own, and the cat cushion will be christened with the name that they suggested.

I'm so looking forward to hearing your ideas! I can't vote, but if I could I would suggest Sebastian, after my own cat.

Entries close at 10am on Friday 7th November. Hello Pretty's standard competition Ts and Cs apply.

Win with Hello Pretty and Long Jean Silver! - CLOSED

We're of the opinion that it's actually good things that come in threes. Like three piece suits. And Hanson. (Don't even pretend you didn't love Hanson.)

That's why we were thrilled when Long Jean Silver told us she was going to give away not one, not two, but three of her stunning new textured silver triangle rings.
 

That's right. Three of them. One for you, and one for each of your two favourite people in the universe. (Note: Unfortunately shipping on this prize only covers Planet Earth.)

Winning these beauties is as easy as one, two...yup, you guessed it, three!

Win with Hello Pretty and Glove Jewellery! - CLOSED

Folks, it finally happened. We found someone with an eyebrow game fiercer than Beyoncé's. Exhibit A:

This handsome fella is brand spanking new from the phenomenally talented Glove Jewellery. He's sterling silver, made by hand, and ridiculously good looking. And the best part? He's looking for a good home. Could it be with you?

Here's what you need to do if you'd like to win him:​

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:

Win with Hello Pretty and Lou Harvey! (Closed)

In the words of the Mask, P-A-R-T-Why? Because we gotta.

We're party enablers here at HPHQ, and we couldn't think of a prettier way to do it than with these Lou Harvey party jars, filled with bunting, cupcake wrappers and toppers, and paper straws.

The fabulous folks at Lou Harvey have given us three jars, and while we're sorely tempted to keep them for ourselves, they have to go to three of you lucky people. Want one? Course you do. Here's how to get in on the action:

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.)

Win with Hello Pretty and Jewels & Lace! (Closed)

Pretties, we're slowly inching towards winter. Sartorially though, we're still channeling summer - and what better way to do that than with this gorgeous leafy thing from Jewels & Lace topping your tresses?
 

We're giving away one of these pretty things this week, and it could be to you! Here's how you can enter:
