Win a Forever Memory Bear worth £80 (IT'S A GIVEAWAY)


Marie Kondo is massive at the moment. You know the Japanese home organising guru who's turned perfectionism into an artform. Apart from her slightly creepy obsession with folding, I have nothing bad to say about Marie. I spent five days last summer reading and implementing her strategy and those five days were more refreshing and relaxing than a five day holiday. By the time I'd finished clearing the house of all the things I did not want or need, I had to hire someone to take it all away! I got rid of everything I could not find good use for with the exception of one box. 

You know the box. You've got that box. The one you move from house to house, from cupboard to loft. It's filled with things you cannot use but cannot bear to part with. A few weeks ago I asked my readers about their favourite keepsake and many people chose their child's first babygro. 

If you've had a child, babygros and tiny clothes make up a large proportion of the box contents and whilst these things can mean a great deal to us, do we really enjoy them when they're shoved under the bed? 

That's why Forever Memory Bears are giving you the opportunity to take those memories out of the box and put them on display where you can enjoy them every day! 

Forever Memory Bears take your much loved items and through the power of creative magic turn them into a beautiful keepsake for you to love twice as much. You have the chance to win one of these amazing bears by entering the giveaway below. 

Before you enter, check out what will be needed if you win. This competition is open worldwide but you may need to pay for additional postage costs if you live outside the UK. 

This is a very special prize so there will be lots of ways to win, including:

Visiting the Forever Memory Bears website and choosing your favourite bear 

and


The winner will be announced on the blog in two weeks time, along with a very special offer. 

Good Luck!
