Celebrating Diary of a Ladybird's 1st birthday & the 100th post!

It's giveaway time!

Very quietly and discretely, on August 8th, this little blog of mine turned one. Awww... To top it off, this just happens to be my 100th post!

On such an occasion, it is only appropriate that I say thank you to all of you, my wonderful readers. When I first started this little blog I thought, Who's going to read it? Is anyone interested in what I'm blogging about? Then slowly but surely, my readership grew and I started receiving more and more hits and comments. And not visits and comments from friends and family who pity me, but people whom I've never met in my life! So thank you for interest in Diary of a Ladybird; for your encouraging words; for your own blogs that bring a smile to my face; and, for the sense of community that I have found in the blogging network. You are all amazing!

To celebrate Diary of a Ladybird's first birthday and the milestone of my 100th post, I am giving away a copy of 200 Cupcakes by Joanna Farrow.


This is a great little book with loads of beautiful and inspiring cupcake recipes. This book laughs boldly in the face of anyone who dares call cupcakes boring! There are great everyday cupcake recipes, as well as cupcakes for children, adults, special occasions and savoury cupcakes too. I have been using this book a lot recently, including my recent Red Velvet Cupcakes post.

To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is become a follower of my blog.
If you're unsure how to do this, click here.

It doesn't matter whether you're based in Australia, the US, Malaysia or... anywhere! You could win :) If you are already a follower, you will automatically be entered into the draw to win.

The winner will be randomly selected on Sunday, September 19 at 10pm AEST.

*** This giveaway has been drawn. Congratulations to Jen of Truffled Pink! ***

Thank you for reading my 100th post. I look forward to bringing you hundreds more to delight your senses :)

Good luck!
