We have winners!! The generous people at Simon and Schuster gave us two copies of Marissa Stapley‘s Mating for Life to give away and we’re just about to do just that. If you didn’t get a chance to read Marissa’s interview and the competition entries please check it out here. All you had to do to enter was tell us what you are mated to for life, what you love and cannot live without. We absolutely LOVED all your answers; it was really challenging to select just two. In the end we chose Angie and Shireen as our winners; congratulations! A big thank you to everyone who played along. Please stay tuned for more competitions and give aways.

And finally, in the spirit of celebrating Marissa’s book and your fantastic comments this week’s Sweet Little Something depicts something each of us could not bear to live without. Please leave us a haiku or comment below; we love to hear from you and we do send good karma your way when you do. Truly.

Have a happy weekend!

From Hannah: My Sister. And a camera (though the one she is pictured with might not be overly effective). It doesn’t need to be a snazzy camera, the camera on my phone will suffice and I am an instagram addict. I guess I’m just a snap-happy, sister-lurvin’ kinda girl.


From Ria: Nature. I’m lucky to live in a gorgeous part of the world, with inspiring everyday sights outside my door. I try to maintain a child-like wonder about it all (just check out this Horse Chestnut seed pod. Amazing and beautiful.), which means I’m never bored when I’m outdoors. Having a three year old helps too.
