Giveaway to celebrate HHH's First Birthday!

The moment has arrived- I'm having a giveaway! I'm so excited for it! I was going around the shops today with the words "Like for yourself what you like for your Brother" resonating in my mind. (i.e, I was trying to pick things I would want to receive myself in a giveaway).

Without further ado, here are the all-important prizes: 


I believe we all blog because we have a passion for writing, and enjoy sharing our stories and experiences with others. Some people start up blogs to connect with the world, as a means of "therapy", to express themselves- all sorts of reasons. So the first prize is this super-cute and fun ruled notebook (it was literally love at first sight for me):


A vintage across-the-body brown bag, and a time necklace. Every girl needs a small bag for her essential items, and I decided to get a time necklace due to Aisha's post about them. It's a fully working clock btw :) yay!


This small cupcake notepad. It has a bit of elastic to keep it closed and a pink ribbon so you know which page you're on.


Entering is easy! All you have to do is comment below and share your favourite quote. It may be from a film, book, a lyric, anything- or just a general quote. The more interesting- the better! Include your e-mail address in the comment box too please.

The not-so-small print:
  • This competition will be run from today, 18/01/10 until Tuesday the 25th January, 8pm GMT.

'We all remember the bedtime stories of our childhoods.
The shoe fit Cinderella, the frog turns into a prince, sleeping beauty is awakened with a kiss.
Once upon a time and then they lived happily ever after.
Fairytales, the stuff of dreams.
The problem is fairytales don't come true.
It's the other stories, the ones that begin with dark and stormy nights and end in the unspeakable.
It's the nightmares that always seem to become reality'

My favourite quote from Grey's Anatomy. Sorry it's so long! :)

Asalamu alaikum, my fav quote is:

"There is only one sin. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation on theft. Do you understand that? When you kill a man, you steal a life. You steal his wife’s right to her husband, his children’s right to their father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth. Do you see? The is no act more wretched than stealing. A man who takes what’s not his to take, be it a life or a loaf of naan, I spit on such a man. And if I ever cross paths with him, God help him."

- Kite Runner

From one of the best books ever :D
I love the cupcake notebook btw *hint hint* hehehe

Glad you like the award too, well deserved :D
