I have lots of things to celebrate this year - my first speaking gig at a photography conference (Phlock Live), the launch of my tongue-tie service (Tongue Tie Sussex) AND being published in Digital Photographer magazine! So to pass on the excitement and good vibes, I'm running a HUGE giveaway worth over £600 including all the things I'd love to get for Mother's day!
I wanted to write a bit about why I've chosen these specific prizes. First of all, every single one is a local business that I love. It's important to me to support other local businesses and these are all businesses I spend my own money at as well as obviously telling you all about them when I can!
Of course the major part of this prize is an in-home family photo session with me including my Vibrant package which lets you choose 20 digital images and you also get 5 fine art prints. Worth £500 in total.
This can be used for maternity or newborn sessions and families with up to 5 people. Session to take place before 30th June 2020.
I've had the Mother's Day brunch at Wilderness Wood Cafe a few times, it gets better every year! I love the options of bacon & waffles with syrup or smoked salmon with scrambled egg (Nik and I always get one of each and share them both) and this year they also have a vegan option of avocado & tomato bruschetta too. PLUS you also get tea or coffee, milk or juice for the kids, yoghurt with fruit compote AND bite-sized blueberry muffins.
I've reserved a table at 10 am for up to two adults and two children, total value of £43.80.
From Victoria is a stunning plant and gift shop in Lewes. I first met Victoria when she took part in my Hello Yellow project for Young Minds charity. She's lovely and has amazing taste! Her shop recently moved from The Needlemakers to the High Street and is filled with utterly gorgeous plants, home wares and various gifts including jewellery. She also has the cutest assistant!
I bought a £25 voucher so you can have fun browsing yourself and choose something that you love! Victoria also threw in a lovely little dried posy of flowers.
Whirlygig is a beautiful toy shop in Tunbridge Wells (although they also have three other stores in Kent and Sussex, including Brighton). They specialise in ‘things to make and do’ – creative toys that really engage children and get them involved in what they are doing. Their shops are places of joy and colour so I'm obviously a fan!
I bought a £25 voucher so you can go with your kids and choose something fun together!
I discovered Art Chocolat recently and am already hooked on their colourful and delicious chocolates! Founded by Jack Ralph, these chocolates are super fresh and made with top quality ingredients locally near Hailsham.
I have a special code for you to claim your box of 12 chocolates, either The Chocolatier's Collection box OR choose your own (which I did to create this rainbow selection). My favourite was Rubies & Obsidian - raspberry & dark chocolate flavour. Postage is covered so order online with the code I give you and your fresh chocolates will be posted straight to you. Worth £18.94.
Brighton Gin is an award-winning gin, distilled by a family business down by the sea in Hove. Not only do I love the taste but the packaging is gorgeous too!
I've bought a bottle of gin for you to enjoy once the kids are in bed ;) Worth £38
It was so much fun compiling a list of gifts I'd like to receive! I hope you'll agree this is an epic prize to make Mother's Day something extra special for one lucky winner!
I'm also going to give away runners up prizes of £100 Bexphoto vouchers too so if you don't win, you could still get a Mother's Day treat ;)
