Carousel in the City { GIVEAWAY }

204 Carousel in the City { GIVEAWAY }

Like was promised to you – and this post will mark – giveaway#3 on the blog, yep – there’s a sweet present to be WON! This one applies to everyone who wants to enter – from within the country. Collaborated with a lovely girl from Pune, Twisha Maniar, who creates and paints objects for Carousel; Carousel is her own label which was conceptualised about 2 years ago, and she focuses completely on customisation of her products when it comes to the orders that she takes from customers. From the minute she connected with me some weeks ago, I knew this would be a really cute giveaway – What do you think? Because I’ve been thankful to the love I have been receiving since I started to publicise this blog some more, the two years gone past have been more than wonderful. Some thanks for you comes in the form of this beautiful box painted by Twisha herself, and wait, so here’s what you have to do if you wish to win it…

What’s in the Box?

1. NOTHING! The BOX is what you are going to win, silly. (Sorry, was trying to be cute.) So it’s set in a square shape, and I believe it would be perfect for those of you who can’t ever have enough of dainty, lacquered jewellery boxes.

2. Favourite feature? Twisha was gracious enough to let me create and conceptualise a pattern/print for the box; so it’s all her handiwork, and some of my brain juice. Told you, her customising properties are tops! (Confetti prints are my trademark! Copied the rainbow stripes from a pattern she had worked on previously for another customer.)


The rules are simple! (This giveaway is for Indian residents, only.)

1. Comment here on what excites you about/why you would like to win this dainty box.
2. Follow Carousel on both Facebook & Instagram; this is not optional either. :-)

(Brownie points will be awarded to you if you are to ‘Like’ my page on Facebook, and/or follow me on Instagram, HEH.)

What happens after?

I’ll choose ONE winner in exactly ten days, from now – save the date – November 20 is when this contest comes to an end! As soon as I announce the winner – which will either be on my Facebook or Instagram page (and through an e-mail, perhaps) – please write back to me with your postal address and phone number right away. (Will share the contact details with Twisha who will directly post the present across to you, then.)

The “Fourth Year of Festivities” remains yours for taking! Giveaway-gift-makin’.

{ Carousel, also, has a set of pre-painted objects for sale in the form of chalkboard frames, metal boxes, paper votive-holders, serving trays and so much more. This means that you can order from her existing collections, apart from requesting to have something custom painted. To be honest, I would rather opt for a custom-made product from Twisha only because the process is easy and plenty of fun. The result of which created this giveaway! Farewell. }

Sweet November

203 Sweet November

Forest green is the colour of my heart, this November! I suppose, it’s a blend between a warm summer and wintery autumn; yes, it’s that shade of green. Not envy, not sick! Pure, fresh, fragrant, resuscitating… Okay, so here’s the thing! And also, it seems like all I ever do is mope, mope, mope, mope. Not a secret? I want to be better at life. Be social when required. Be there for folks. I want to do more with my time. Sometimes I feel like everything’s slipping away… Out of my grasp, and I can stop it. BUT, I won’t. This feels like one of those awful days. Pangs of guilt. Boredom looming around like a dark cloud. Dramatic thoughts. I’m falling and failing, and should be concerned. This is a vow! Promise to not feel ashamed anymore. Will rise out of this self-pity, and be better. P.S. I will be better! Watch the blog, please? Reading a few good books, and I have some painting to do – this week. Also, a wedding sketch – TODAY. Nearly done, but have been procrastinating. Bye, friends!

NOTE: Watch out, because there is a giveaway coming your way, and this one should be a lot of fun! Also, it marks my third one on this particular planet. Collaborated with a label that focuses on handmade lovelies! Conceptualised a design that will be painted on the prezzie to be won. Oh, have I said too much? Just wait, and see!
