Turns Five Next Month! Here’s How We’re Celebrating… !

Happy Birthday!

On December 16th, galadarling.comwill be five years old!

Can you believe it? FIVE YEARS! I can hardly wrap my brain around it! It has been an incredible ride, & as silly as it might sound to say that creating this blog changed my life, nothing could be more true. It is the best thing I’ve ever done.

You have been with me through so much. From the extremely humble beginnings in my apartment in Melbourne, to the bright lights big city vibe of New York City — & about a hundred other cities in-between! — you have kept me company, inspired me & made me smile. You’ve stuck with me through multiple boyfriends, oodles of apartments & plenty of ill-advised style moments! You celebrated with us when Mike & I got engaged & married, & you’ve fallen in love with Hank & Dolly like they’re your own!

You mean so much to me. Thank you for being part of my life. I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate it. So I’m giving you…

Happy Birthday!

(Or some other non-denominational word meaning, GIFTS! GIFTS! GIFTS!)

Yes, it’s true! I’ve teamed up with some of my favourite people for I’m Dreaming Of A Pink Christmas! It’s part birthday celebration, & part whopper Christmas bonanza!

I’m going to be giving away plenty of incredible goodies; in fact, I’m going to give away a fantastic prize every day of December! & all of them could be won by YOU!

The goodies range from sparkling jewellery to fabulous handbags; high-end sex toys to big pieces of art for your bedroom; from custom-made denim to smart, mind-expanding books! Trust me when I say the line-up is truly MAGNIFIQUE! Everything comes from a company I absolutely adore. Do you know what’s even better? The contests are open to EVERYONE everywhere! No geographical limitations!

It’s just my little way of saying THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for sticking with me on this crazy journey! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the fact that you come here to spend time with me every day. I don’t know how else to say thank you for all your tweets, Facebook messages, emails, postcards & treasures in the mail! Meeting you all in person is always so humbling & wonderful. You’re an incredible group of people, & I feel so lucky & blessed to have attracted you into my life!

This is the least I could do, right?!

The excitement kicks off TOMORROW! Remember to check back EVERY DAY for your chance to win an amazing prize… & please know that I love you, eternally!

I can’t wait to get cracking! WOO-HA!

P.S. Today’s the last day to take advantage of the Love & Sequins Super-Special Sale! Don’t miss out, baby doll!
