Now you do a little dance and you take a drink of water



We're off to Kaikoura for the weekend!
(Here's a sneak of my packing. I'm having a blue theme. I find it helps to have a colour theme, as packing traumatises me!)
Whilst G and I are having a dirty relaxing weekend celebrating his impending birthday, I'm having a giveaway!
Most of you probably already have this book, but if you don't, I have a copy for one lucky lovely!
( Open to International readers, of course! )


It just happens to feature our very own gorgeous Vix !
I really like this book, it's quite lovely.
All you have to do is leave a comment telling me how much you love me that you would like to enter; you have until  Monday night 11pm NZ time!
It's only polite that you be a regular reader.
I'll draw a winner by random number later in the week!

Have a splendid weekend; get your goodies out and give some random stranger a thrill!

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED!

Yes I DO love you and yea I WOULD like to enter! I would love to have a book featuring Vix!

Great idea having a colour theme to help with the packing issues. We're going away next week and I'm not thrilled about the prospect of the packing up! It's a mish for 7 people! But the unpacking when we get back is the part that traumatises me!
Have fun in kaikoura.. I love that coast. x

This book look s amazing. I love your blog and your style - definitely one that I check out all the time.

Trudie said...

Oh of course you are most definitely loved and adored. Without a doubt I would love to enter, that book has been on a wish lists for birthdays and Christmas and still non on has taken the hint. So I will take my chances at lady luck.

Love the colour theme packing idea, very clever. Have a fabolous time.

Haven't heard of that book before but I am very curious for a sneak peek! How lucky to be spending a weekend in Kaikoura, will you do something for me while you're there? Will you eat one of those delicious crayfish fritter sandwiches from that caravan for me? I still dream of them! ha ha I love how you pick a colour theme to help you pack, I imagine with all the clothes you have packing would be traumatising. So many great pieces to choose from! xx

Have a fab weekend - looks like you're all packed and ready to rock n roll :)

I'm a fairly new reader, but aw shucks what the heck - wack me down for the draw for the pretty vintage book. ;)

I already have the book, but I just thought I'd say I love you anyway! Have a lovely weekend x
PS I'm totally up for meeting when you visit the UK

pastcaring said...

A dirty weekend for the birthday boy? How fabularse! Hope you are packing some sexy undies, missus, and obviously they will have to be blue. Matchy-match all the way!
I do love you hugely, as well you know, but I won't enter your draw(ers) as I have the book already.
Hope you have a great trip away, take lots of pics, especially if you molest any statues while you are out and about. LOVE! xxxxxx

Hannah said...

Oh do hope you have fantastical weekend, packing always upsets me as I need a wardrobe change every time my mood changes which is a lot. Good idea to pack by colour. P.S. I love you like my favourite limb, which is my writing arm obvs xxx

Lucy Nation said...

Ooh yes consider me entered for the pretty vintage book. I share your packing pain. I hate it. I'm totally incapable of organising outfits. I'm sure you'll be a vision in matchy matchy blue. Enjoy your weekend. Try not to get your goodies out in public. If you do, get pictures!

Btw, you're totally right about AE being a plonka. I know he is really. It's the illusion I'm besotted with. I've never met him but I did stand in the same group as him backstage once! I ended up swapping numbers with one of the guitarists instead. I've also met Dave Vanian and Wayne Hussey, nice guys. I swear I was a groupie born too late!

seƱora Allnut said...

whouu, I love that blue shades! and I agree with you: packaging on a color theme is less traumatic!
Of course, I would love to have that book, but I think that mail costs would be absolutely crazy!, I don't want to ruin you!
besos & economy

Krista said...

Oh do give G some spankings from me will you :) I love the color theme especially for a weekend, I'm pinching that! I love all the blue and can't wait too you wear some on it!

I do already have a copy so don't count me in, but I do love the book and so wanted to have Vix sign my copy but I didn't wanna carry it all over the UK~ there were frocks to buy!

Have a blast!
XXOO

Deb said...

Have a great weekend. We are heading there too! The book looks amazing

Ulla-Marie Nilsson said...

First of all: I love you very much, Helga Von Trollop! i also admire Vintage Vixen. You both seem to be consistent in your style and do not worry about designers and trends. Additionally you combine colors and patterns in a delicious way, and I'm guessing that the book contains more "of your kind". Therefore, I would like to participate in your giveaway.

c... said...

I love both you an Vix very much and I hopefully wish that I will be lucky !!

chunkychick_in_NZ said...

ohhhh yes pleaseeeeeeeee enter me!!!

Vix said...

Have a brilliant weekend in Kalikoura, give birthday boy G his own blue movie and have a blast!!!
LOVE my parcel of joy - it arrived today!
Love you! Vix

Maria said...

have the best weekend - i think it is right that the colour theme is blue (if something is described as a bit 'blue' in england it is quite naughty!) being english i would like to be terribly polite and ask to be included for the book draw x

vintage_kitten said...

tessbolton said...

Hayley Rose said...

Of course I love you! how could you say such a thing? I loved you from the first moment my cursor hovered over your name on another blog, I knew from that moment on you would be in my favorites forever and then...facebook! :D Even if I dont win love this blog :)

Penny-Rose said...

Hi Helga, hope you and G have fab time in Kaikoura and I would be honoured and so happy I would almost wet my pants with excitement if I won your giveaway.

YvonneSedition said...

50 and counting said...

Blue is a truly underappreciated colour. Most of my uniforms are in various shade of blue.

Enjoy that weekend. My dirty weeken is rapidly approaching.


Look out Vegas!

Lynn Dylan said...

I am leaving a comment because I do love you! And I would love to win a book with our fabulous Vix in it, but I am in the States, so if that precludes me, that is totally understandable. Have fun in your blue!

xoxo

Happy Bday to G-star!

Nikki @ Penelope Cat Vintage said...

Gah! I missed the giveaway. This book has been in my basket for yonks but I keep running out of money :). Nevermind.

I love your co-ordinated packing and blue is the most common colour in my wardrobe at the moment.
