Postcards From Appreciation Giveaway!

My darling readers, the time has come for Postcards From to hold its first giveaway. I am super excited about this. I just truly want to say thankyou so much to everyone who has supported me through this blogging experience. Your daily comments are amazing, and I read and appreciate each and every single one. You are all gems. I hope that whoever wins this giveaway will be blessed, because I wanted to give back for all you guys have given!


First off we have a brand new skirt, I actually just bought it last night, from one of my favorite Australian stores - Cotton On! It can be worn high waisted or just at your hips, its super cute and form fitting. I love this skirt and I probably will go buy the same one soon because I kept staring at it in my room last night!

Second, we have my favorite magazine of all time : Frankie. It was made by a few cute Australian girls and has exploded into a genius treasure. Its full of lovely words, pictures, crafts, cupcake recipes, and articles that will make you laugh. Frankie is unreal and I promise you, you will love it! Winner will recieve this months issue, which comes out in a couple of days, just in time for the end of the giveaway!

  13. that skirt is adorable! i love dark florals. and i've never heard of that magazine. all australian mags i've ever seen have been so cool though so i bet this one is fabulous!

  14. Love the skirt, love the lipstick colour and I loooove Frankie! I already have that issue (I'm spoilt with a subscription! :p) Most of all I love this blog. Your outfits are always so amazing, I love that you have such eclectic taste and that you often get outfit shots without shoes on :D

    I can't wait to see who wins, hopefully it's some amazing American that has never had the experience of that awesome magazine... Imagine if they tell their friends etc etc and this is Frankie's big break over there :p I'm gushing, it's just so good.

    Okay it's early in the morning and I'm rambling! Thanks for blogging, you bring happiness to my day xx

  18. Ahhh I want to win this giveaway soooooo bad! I've seen a lot of giveaways on the blogs I follow, but none have seemed so personal as yours, and I love that. I think it is great that you took your time to go out and purchase these things, as well, pick out things that represent you that you would like to share with others.

    Please, please,please luck be on my side! :)

  24. Well I feel like a cheat. The first time I visit your blog and it's a giveaway! But I have to say, I read some older posts and I love your style! If you wear red lipstick and short skirts I can tell we're gonna be friends, haha. Can't wait to start following you!

  26. This is so odd, I swear to god that I commented here earlier. That is so very odd, but I'll write another comment.

    I think these giveaways are fantastic! That is definitely a great lip shade, I always appreciate a great lip color. I think the floral skirt is great. I always love florals and it's from Cotton On! Cotton On opened a few stores in Hong Kong and it is super popular and very affordable. I have a few items from that shop :) Woo!

    As you may know already, my email is avalonnesummers@gmail.com

    Good luck to everyone! I can't wait to see the winner wearing the skirt! I think the best part of the giveaway is the love letter from you :)

  30. Are you kidding me?! This is the coolest giveaway EVER, like Christmas. I love that you chose a lot of random things, that makes it so much fun and totally cool.
    If I win...I'll be happy to send you a picture wearing these things. I was just thinking the other day how I have NEVER in my life worn lipstick, just because I don't like the way it looks on me, but I love that bright orangey red so much people are getting into these days.
    Fun stuff! Enter me twice ;)

  33. this is really awesome! I love the pattern of that skirt and I've been super curious about Frankie since I've seen it in a few blogs. I'm thinking it's similar to old issues of Sassy or Bust? oh, and red lipstick and a loveletter? yes!

  35. Oh, yes! My fingers are crossed tight. I can never get enough skirts, and I just love magazines. I really adore lipstick, too, even though I'm not gutsy enough to wear it out. AND a letter from you? OOH. This is just too much. I'm hoping.
