It is better to give than to receive

I've received a lot lately. By that I mean I've won 2 great giveaways in the past 2 weeks. First, there was Meeks at Juggling Motherhood celebrating a year of blogging heaven, where I won a simply scrumptious pack of Lindt white chocolate. I love reading her blog as this fellow Wellington mum of four is so clever at finding fantastic craft ideas on the Internet, and she blogs so beautifully about how to balance being a mum and an individual. It totally made my day when I read on Meek's blog that I had won the pack. We put the chocolate away in the cupboard when it arrived, and were really planning to save it for a 'special occasion', but after a tough couple of weeks with various new sick bugs that seem to just keep on taking us out, Mark and I were in desperate need of a treat tonight so we did have a teeny weeny taste - talk about melt in your mouth cookies and cream sensation. Wow.

Then a few days later, I won a $100 Ocean Spray giveaway through my online Mindfood subscription - which just reinforces how much I love that magazine! I would post pictures but we devoured most of the goodies as soon as they arrived which included 3 Refresher Drinks, Cranberry Trail Mix, Salt & Pepper Grinder and a signed recipe book.

So, I'd love to now return the favour, allowing our blog readers the opportunity for a little indulgence and good cheer. It can't come at a better time for those of us in NZ who are in the grips of the darkest days of winter, hanging on by a thread for the shortest day to pass, longing for lighter evenings, a little more sunshine and less SAD (seasonal affected disorder) feelings, if we're being honest!

If you'd like the opportunity to win some indulgent Bohemein chocolate, this is it!

Bohemein is based in Wellington, and sells handmade, exquisite gourmet chocolate in flavours such as wasabi (crazy but amazing), and sea salt. Having tried them, I can promise you these are a sensational sensory experience. There's an anonymous saying that reads 'Forget love, I'd rather fall in chocolate'. I don't know if I'd quite go that far, but I know for some people chocolate comes pretty near to heaven. So if that's you, then here's what to do.

To enter:
  • Leave a comment
  • Open to anyone, anywhere on the planet
  • Entries (comments) will be open for 2 weeks, closing on 30 June 2010
  • Winner will be drawn randomly through random.org

Good luck my fellow chocolate lovers and thanks for reading!

You're giving away CHOCOLATE!!! Really!!??

Wasabi would really freak me out I think. I saw Chilli Lindt this week - was tempted but settled happily for my orange indulgence.

How cool to have won so many neat things - Mindfood is a good read huh?!!
