12 Days Of Christmas Giveaway: Day 6 - Xmas Tipple & A New Read!

We're halfway through our  BIG Christmas Giveaway!!!



Each and every day until 1st December there will be a different competition going live....

And finally, on 1st December all of the winners will be drawn so that we can kick off the most festive month of the year with a bang and you will all receive your prizes in plenty of time for Christmas!! :)

So what's today's prize?!

Let's be honest most of us like to have a little drink over the festive period, and even if we don't - we most likely stock up incase of visitors!

So how perfect would this bottle of top quality Bloom Gin be to impress your guests with?!

This high quality London Dry Gin is available from Sainsbury's & Waitrose stores nationwide.

In addition to this, we are adding in a brand new book so you can curl up with a G & T and lose yourself in a romance novel!

The Echoes Of Love by Hannah Fielding 

Venetia Aston-Montague has escaped to Italy’s most captivating city to work in her godmother’s architect firm, putting a lost love behind her. For the past ten years she has built a fortress around her heart, only to find the walls tumbling down one night of the carnival when she is rescued from masked assailants by an enigmatic stranger, Paolo Barone.

Drawn to the powerfully seductive Paolo, and despite warnings of his Don Juan reputation and rumours that he keeps a mistress, Venetia can’t help being caught up in the smouldering passion that ignites between them.

When she finds herself assigned to a project at his magnificent home deep in the Tuscan countryside, Venetia not only faces a beautiful young rival but also a sinister count and dark forces in the shadows, determined to come between them.

Can Venetia trust that love will triumph, even over her own demons? Or will Paolo’s carefully guarded, devastating secret tear them apart for ever?


For your chance to WIN a bottle of Bloom gin & a copy of The Echoes Of Love, just complete the Rafflecopter form below!
