I can’t believe that it’s nearly the end of October and how time has flown. It’s been a busy month for me with lots going on, and in amongst all the excitements (and trying to eat healthily and exercise) I’ve also been offered some lovely products to give away to you lovely readers, and at the end of this post you’ll find details of how you can win.
I’ve been fortunate to go on some wonderful press trips around South West Australia which you can read about on my travel blog ZigaZag (You might like 5 Sensational places to visit in Margaret River), and ZigaZag has been named one of the Top 5 Travel Blogs to watch in 2015 which I’m so so happy about.
Travel is such a wonderful way to expand your horizons, and as we get older it’s so important to keep exploring and keep interested in the world at large.
More exciting than anything for me though, is that Lifestyle Fifty has been nominated as a finalist (of 5) in the Healthy Lifestyle and Fitness section of the BUPA blog awards. If you’d like to vote for me in the People’s Choice part of the awards, I’d be so grateful, you can click the link to vote here : BUPA Blog Awards Nominations
But now onto what I have to giveaway to you lovely readers.
October 2014 : Spring Giveaways
1. Hedgren Tote, Kaci, Casual Chic value $169
1 to giveaway
If you’re after a new handbag with contemporary urban looks and elegant lines in eye catching colours, then have a look at the Hedgren range of bags. They’re touted as being ideal for busy urbanites, commuters and travellers and I really love my Tote Kaci, Storm, Casual Chic bag*
I have one gorgeous, hard wearing, stylish Tote to giveaway.
Here’s the lowdown: Size: 35 H x 9 D x 38.5 W (cm), Weight: 0.5kg, Colours: Storm or Viola.
What I love about this bag
It’s a spacious tote, big enough for all my bloggie bits and pieces such as my iPad, my phone, a notebook and other essentials like a small cardi and make-up. I could probably fit in my small laptop if I really wanted to. I have this tote in Storm, you might like the vivid Viola as well. The bag is distinctive, hard wearing and the detailing is smart and elegant.
The material is functional, lightweight, water repellent and modern. It has tear-proof and slash-proof high-density webbing shoulder straps – so it’s ideal if you’re on the road or traveling.
You can buy Hedgren bags in Australia at national retailers including David Jones, Strandbags and Victoria Station.
2. Lugloc Value $49.95
1 to Giveaway
I don’t know about you, but we’ve had our luggage misplaced on a long-haul flight from South Africa to England. We were flying from Cape Town to England via Johannesburg and we arrived in Heathrow but our bags didn’t. We flagged down a taxi in open toe’d sandals, and flimsy t-shirts just a few days before Christmas while our warm jeans and sweatshirts headed off for a holiday we think to Dubai. Any rate, nobody could locate them, not for 10 days. By then we were dressed by Oxfam charity shops and relying on the generosity of like-sized family members with no thought that our luggage might be reunited with us.
It was finally returned to us. But nobody could tell us where it had swanned off to.
If only we’d had this product in one of the suitcases at the time. You see the Lugloc device once activated includes 4 free device traces and more traces can be purchased through the phone App with prices ranging from $3.79 for one trace up to $37.99 for 30 extra traces if you’re a serial traveller. It has a 5 year warranty and a fully charged Lugloc battery lasts for up to 40 days.
You just activate the LugLoc then place it a suitcase you’re checking in and it will be located anywhere around the world (except Japan or Korea). So if your luggage is lost or misplaced the approximate location of the Lugloc can be viewed on your mobile phone through the dowloaded LugLoc app so you can then use this information to help the airlines return your luggage to you.
What I love about this product
3. Plox Value $77.00
No I didn’t just swear at you! And I’m specifically talking about nifty little gadget called the Plox 6000 Powerbox
Thinks: Might enter myself – I’d really like one too 🙂 But I can’t – so good luck y’all!
