Thank You // Exciting Giveaway!

Ok I’m not a woman of many words *sheds tear* so I’m going to keep this brief!
Yesterday, while checking my stats on Google Analytics, I realised that I’d hit 200,000 page views since creating this blog.
Whurt. O_O
Now, I know that may not sound like a lot to some of you; hell, some of you probably get 200,000 views a month, but to me I feel so overwhelmed and grateful that you guys still continue to read my blog. 
There have been so many occasions where I’ve wanted to delete the blog altogether (SO MANY) as I felt I somehow wasn’t good enough to write or “compete” – however throughout the last three years, I’ve learnt what works and what doesn’t work and I’ve met some amazing bloggers, so I just wanted to say a MAHOOOSIVE thank you to all of you that have stayed with me!
In lieu of this recent milestone, I thought it appropriate to hold a giveaway. I’ve been wanting to hold a give-away of this sort for the longest time so I’ve been saving for a couple of months to get it.
Soooooo I will be giving away….wait for it..
A Fujifilm FinePix S4530 Bridge Camera?
What’s a bridge camera?
A bridge camera is a camera that is a cross between a point-and-shoot digital camera and a DSLR camera and usually have amazing zoom range which makes it ideal for photographers/bloggers/paparazzi(?!) LOL.
Anyhoo, this giveaway will run until the 7th of October at 00:00 where I will pick a winner at random.
Unfortunately, this giveaway is open to UK entrants only. My next one shall be international though!
Fill out the form below and good luck; may the odds be ever in your favour!*
* A cookie to anyone who can guess the movie reference!

  • I think I should win because I am struggling to get good picture quality with my iphone camera.a new camera is on my wish list and Christmas list but the chances of getting one as I have two small children who come first on the present lists are slim.would make me do happy to win a camera of such good quality.thanks

  • Wow fabulous giveaway! Congratulations on hitting 200,000 views! Found your blog via The Sunday Girl and it's fabulous. I'd love to win the camera because I have an interest in photography and i've actually got a wishlist of cameras i'd like to purchase. I've currently got a DSLR but it's a bit hefty for carrying around so i'm currently looking in to bridge cameras for the likes of blogging 😀

    Thank you!

  • Congrats on your achievement babes,your blog is amazing. Please enter me in ur giveaway,I would love to win because I love photography and would love to take better pics for my blog and been finding it hard to get hold of a good camera.

  • I'd love to win this camera as I have just started blogging, and although I was happy with my normal digital camera at first I am now struggling with things like swatch photos. I saw this on Buyapowa the other day but didn't get it because I didn't know whether a bridge camera is worth it, but from what you say it'd be perfect for me!

  • I'd love to win this because we desperately need a decent camera to capture the special moments with my (nearly) 2 year old son! At the moment we only have photographs taken with our mobile phones! This means they're not good enough for a canvas or anything and I'd love to have a nice decent quality canvas of my son.

    I'd love to win the camera because after my camera broke I've been making sue with my cellphone. However it can't possibly get everything I want to capture. I'm in need of a camera… a companion of sorts to take along with me on my travels from coast to coast and that will keep me company during my everyday routine to help me capture memories and anything beautiful I see along the way.

  • Betsy Boat

    * Hunger games reference * – (yay for virtual cookies!)

    This is a fantastic giveaway. Honestly, the best I have seen. I would LOVE to win this camera, I'm currently using my mums for my photography on my blog. Its pretty good really, little with 9 mega pixels or so. But I have to give it back soon, as im away at university. Which leads me onto my next point, university. This camera would be so MINDBLOWINGLY useful for university. I study fashion brand management so we have to do loads of photoshoots, which is great. But I always have to sign up and wait to use a university camera, which takes ages. :/ This would enable me to make my work totally my own, personal.

    Wow sorry this comment is so long! I suppose I can hope that now I have put all that out there the gods of fate are reading and will say ''hey, her number should come out of the raffle''.

    Lovely blog by the way, I'm a new follower!
    Hope your having a great weekend!

  • I'd love to win this awesome camera because my old one is broken…and I love taking photos!:)
