THIS SH*T CRAY

I don't mean to brag, but this sh*t is just awesome. I've kept thedramadiaries the way it is because I pride myself in writing things that I will read, having readers that I would probably be friends in real life, so it's nice to have numbers that I can manage. Occasionally though, I do wish I had more feedback on this blog [although I get awesome feedback on Twitter and Instagram, join me there too!]. Over the last week though, my Facebook Page has exploded because of something I posted. This morning, there are over 14,000 people talking about the Page. CRAZY!

In case you were wondering, this is totally the best time to advertise. ;o)

COZYCOT INSPIRING WOMEN

So a few weeks ago, I received an email from the marketing person at Cozycot telling me I've been nominated as one of CozyCot Inspiring Women in conjunction with International Women's Day. I don't know who nominated me, but I'm as thrilled as I am humbled by the accolade. I write by blog purely out of love, and I enjoy motivating as many people as I can along my journey. Here's a little shameless plug... you can hit 'Like' at this link if you'd like [or if you've been been a voyeur of my site for years, or if you're a PR person whose stuff I constantly plug, or if you just love me and my bizarre sense of humour]:

And in case you have arrived from Cozycot's site and wondering why in the world this batsh*t crazy girl has been nominated, here are some of the best posts in the last year:

1, 2, 3 TIMES THE PRESSIES!

Because Christmas is a hop, skip and a jiggle away, I'm giving away not one, not two but THREE wicked awesome gifts in this 24-hour quickie giveaway! 1. BIRDIE SLING BAG WORTH $250 COURTESY OF EPITOME

Epitome is such a wicked cool boutique - thoughtfully curated brands and pieces that are understated, but make a statement all at the same time. Some of the brands they stock include Kings of Carnaby, FFAYTH, and Hansel. They have kindly sponsored a super cute sling bag made from eco-friendly fabric! Epitome is located at 14c Kensington Park Road (Serangoon Gardens), Open Daily - 12:00 pm to 9.30 pm.

2. A DOZEN DELISH CUPPIECAKES BY CUPCAKE WEEKEND!

I've raved about Cupcake Weekend, and it's not just because the fab baker is a good friend of mine, nor it's because they have a special thedramadiares cupcake! It's because every time I talk about her cupcakes [especially the Lemon Drops!], I start drooling uncontrollably. It's embarrassing, yes, but Cupcake Weekend totally deserves all the praise. Integrity, creativity, and taste, all in a business. Brilliant! This Christmas, Jolene is sponsoring a dozen cupcakes for a very lucky thedramadiaries reader!

You get an assortment of Christmas flavours:

  • Chocolate Molten Mint; moist chocolate cake filled with peppermint ganache (Valrhona Macaé 62%) topped with a peppermint infused buttercream frosting.
  • Toffee Coffee Caramel ; a double swirl vanilla & coffee cake topped with a delicious salted caramel frosting and crushed honey roasted macadamia nuts
  • Gingerbread Orange Spiced Tea ; fluffy gingerbread spiced cake filled with smooth tangy orange curd finished with a TWG Red Christmas Tea infused white chocolate frosting

You can also drop her a line to order them! Regular sized cupcakes, $3 each, minimum order of 6 in a box. Please drop an email to cupcakeweekend@gmail.com.
