Good mood giveaway :)

Hello darlings :) Giveaway time!

Feeling good about being almost done with exams so I thought I'd do my first giveaway! Also: Yay 50 posts.

I want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to my wonderful readers and commenters.


A cute little topshop necklace that has been sitting in my jewellery box - it doesn't get the attention it needs so I'm giving it away to a loving home!

To enter: Simply leave a comment on this post with the word "Topshop" somewhere in it :)  Only one entry per person will be used.
I'll draw names out of a hat and announce the winner on the morning (UK time) of friday the 22nd and will hopefully post it that day. I am willing to post worldwide so international bloggers are welcome to enter!


Please check out my ebay shop where I'm selling loads of my excess shoes... I must own about 200 pairs and the shoe cupboard needs cleaning out! The shop will constantly be updated these few weeks. Please help my boyfriend and I get more feedback so we can start doing buy-it-now's! It's so annoying to be stuck on only 4 feedback :) I'm willing to do pick-ups for London bloggers.


Also.... New blog venture:


(I'm ALREADY frustrated with ebay. We'll see how this works out)

Just to make this a mega giant post: the lovely Stephanie from Ashtray tagged me so here we go!

Seven facts about me:
1. I'm technically chinese but my chinese speaking skills are pretty damn awful. I was born and bred in the UK and my second language
 (if you can call it that) is German. Basically, I would starve much, much quicker if I was dropped off in the middle of China than I would in Germany.

2. I adore animals. I love horses and in Hong Kong, I used to spend every weekend at my local stables feeding, cleaning, grooming and basically just living with my favourite horses.

3. I was sent away from home in Hong Kong at the age of 12 to boarding school in the UK (culture shock much?) for 6 years, which were both the best and worst years of my life.

4. I didn't know how to properly put on eye makeup (ie. shadows and shading) until a few months ago. Up till then I just drew a line of eyeliner on my lid and left it at that.

5. I have an irrational fear of shellfish in their shells, whether they are alive or dead. My biggest problem is with prawns, crabs, lobsters and other related nasties with waving antennae and creepy little legs. However, once the shells are peeled off, the legs thrown away and the heads severed, I am perfectly happy to eat the meat. People think I do this on purpose to make other people peel my shellfish for me but I honestly am afraid of their legs/eyes/shells.

6. I am a city girl, through and through. I love the big cities I've visited - Hong Kong, London, New York, Paris, Rome, Bangkok... I am useless with mud, terrible with fences and get extreme hayfever with a single sniff of pollen. My boyfriend is a complete country boy.

7. My most recurring dreams always feature lifts, shopping malls and hotels, usually all joined together.


Big love to all you beautiful readers, hope you have a wonderful day!
Z xoxo

  10. topshop. hmm. i went to topshop. i've been to three topshops. the first topshop i went to was the oxford street store, but i was jetlagged and carrying too many luggage-bags, so i didn't really appreciate it. then i went to the topshop in stevenage and bought jeans. then i went to the topshop in milton keynes and bought a dress on sale. i like topshop. we don't have topshop in australia, it makes me sad.

    i like that necklace, good giveaway skills!
