Happy 3rd Bloggiversary Shiny Thoughts!






Shiny Thoughts is 3 years old today – bless it! To celebrate, I’ve drunk Pimm’s with Katie and made shiny white choc and lime fairy cakes that I wish I could share with you all because knowing me, I probably won’t get round to eating them all in time! (And yep, I got glitter everywhere but hey ho!) This evening I’m off to see one of my favourite bands at the moment, Awolnation in central London so I best get going!

I want to thank you all who pop over to Shiny Thoughts and leave the kindest comments – you’re all lovely! I just never get the chance to reply as I’d like you so sorryyy! To celebrate I’m giving two bags of goodies away to my regular readers. Whoop whoop! One is full of beauty/jewellery bits and bobs and the other is a bounty of sweeties!


Just leave a comment with your preference, if you have one, plus just let me know how you follow/read Shiny Thoughts! If you don’t leave a link, please leave your email address and I’ll pick two winners next week! Lots of love and shinyness to you all!

    Congratulations on three years, I am just a few weeks behind you :) So much prettyness in this post, glad to see your cupcakes looking suitable shiny 😀

    I read your blog the old fashioned way by typing the URL in when I feel like a cheerful dose of colour ^_^ And I follow on Twitter too.

    I would really love to enter and would prefer the first because my tummy is an unhappy creature and doesn’t like sweeties the last few weeks- so naughty of it!

    3 Years is just awesome. To many more years to come. As always a wonderful post and even more wonderful pictures (I always come to you for inspiration on presentation). This ring is just lovely.

    Have a great new week and blogging year.
