Me? Really?! No Way!!

I never win anything. Ever. 
Every year random charities sell tickets for this & that and I buy them. 
But I already know. 
I'm not in a "drawing." I'm donating. 
Because I never win anything. It is my destiny to not win. 
I accept this fate. I've lived with it my entire life. 
No big.

So when I received an email stating I'd won a giveaway—I'll be honest.
I thought it was SPAM.

When I looked closer I saw the email was from the amazing & lovely Carrie 
at Couture Carrie! She told me I am the lucky-ducky winner 
of her gorgeous giveaway! 
Soon after I received an email from the equally 
gorgeous & amazingly talented Lorena  from the fabulous 
Etsy Shop Balea Raitz confirming my good fortune!

Check this amazing piece of gorgeous:
Citrus Crochet Bikini

Crash diet & spray tan here I come!!!
I'm also going to buy a gazillion lottery tickets because clearly my luck is changing!
Thank you both, you lovely girlies!

As if that wasn't enough, the amazing Marta over at Fashonistas Coffee 
honoured me with the following Blog awards:

I'm honoured and thrilled that she even considered me. 
Thank you Marta!
