happy birthday dear blog (+ a giveaway)

Today this lil' blog of mine turns 4 and I cannot believe I've actually been blogging for that long. Or that you guys have actually been reading this for some of that time. Most years the date of this blogiversary has been forgotten about (ahem ahem) and hasn't been acknowledged in any way. I though I'd finally change that! After all I am quite proud to be a part of the blogging community that I have officially belonged to for 4 years now (not to mention the numerous years spent reading other people's lovely blogs before that), and am also very thankful for all of you for following, commenting and generally just being wonderful. You are all great.

So, here's a tiny giveaway for you! It's nothing special, just a few things that I myself have been enjoying lately. In the picture you can see a few Lush products, my favourite nail polish and lip balm at the moment, some sweets (that are Finnish, and I hope you'll like them, even though they might not be something you're used to, I don't know!) and some Moomin chewing gum so that you don't rot your teeth on my account.. There'll also be a couple of surprises added:-) Unfortunately, this is for UK residents only and here's how you can enter:

1. Follow summer violets. You can do that either by the Google Friend Connect or bloglovin', both of which you can find on the right hand column, just over there-->
2. Leave a comment (with a way of contacting you) on this post!
3. If you want to, tweet/instagram/post about/any of that about this giveaway and leave an extra comment saying you did so for an additional entry.

The winner will be randomly chosen on 05/01/15 at noon, so you'll have two weeks to enter. The winner will be then announced and contacted later that day:-) Hope this is something you like and maybe I'll do similar things in the future. Good luck to you all!

//EDIT The giveaway has now ended and the winner has been notified!
