Spring Giveaway

Image Courtesy DIY Ideas

It's September the 1st, the first day of Spring!........ so to celebrate, I am having a Spring Giveaway here at 'The House'. I have the most divine bottle of 'Urban Rituelle Jasmine and Tuberose Bath and Shower Foam' and a 'Urban Rituelle Jasmine and Tuberose Shea Butter Soap', from 'my shoppe', to give away to one 'lovely' who leaves a comment on this post. I am totally addicted to this fragrance and when I am not burning it in candle form, I am wafting around in a haze of jasmine, after OD'ing on it in the shower! You too can smell like me!
Hope you enjoy it too. Will draw the winner next Monday.

  1. Mmmmm....would love to smell like you but I'm sure it wouldn't be worth the shipping! It seems so surreal that Sept. 1st is heralding spring for you while fall is around the corner for us....

  2. A little giggle escaped me when I saw your "it is september 1st, the first day of spring!" :) As I am so looking forward to midnight this evening and welcoming fall! :)

  5. Hi there A-M,
    I have been reading your blog religiously now for over a year and LOVE IT!!!!!!! You have great style and we one day hope to build our dream home so 'The House' is very inspiring.
    I'm at home with my first child, a 4mth old baby boy and it is your blog and others that get me through the day as I know I can just switch on my laptop and catch up on what all my blog friends are up to.
    I'd love to win the fragranes but just wanted to say Hi and Thanks.

  15. Oooooh Tuberose and Jasmine - very Spring. It's even a lovely Spring morning here in Melbourne - not too cold or rainy. Hope your boys are enjoying the "pool" weather you have been having in sunny Brisbane. Have a good week A-M. Shaz x

  16. Wow, first cab off the rank. Is that a good sign? I too love the smell of tuberose and it is my favourite oil for the house. I like jasmine and have them at our entry but have never had them blended together. Sounds very Spring. Hope you end up having some Spring in Brissie and not bypass it straight to summer. Happy 1st September.

  19. I love the smell of Jasmine. What a wonderful giveaway. So funny to hear you are beginning spring as the mums and cornstalks have just started to appear in my little corner of the world.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sounds lovely! I've been getting my daily dose of 'The House' since we started our building journey a couple of months ago. Keep up the good work! Don't you just love spring, does wonders for the spirits!

  22. I am very new to blogging and stumbled on your blog through Black and Spiro website a couple of weeks ago. Now I log on daily and dream of the house I will one day build on our block of land. I also have two boys so often have a giggle reading your concerns. Thank you for your blog I can't get home quick enough to log on and see all the beautiful things.

  23. A-M,
    I'm an avid reader of your blog enjoying my 5 minutes of peace every morning before the day begins. Being heavily pregnant with my 4th child I'm in desperate need of some pampering! I am due to have my child next Wednesday and only yesterday thought I need some 'special soap and cream' for my long awaited stay at the Mater Hilton! I will miss reading your daily blog whilst in hospital but no doubt will catch up on my return home.
    Kind Regards
    Kate

  24. Hi A-M

    Count me in too please! Really love the house and the blog and thanks for sharing so much of the journey with us all - although my husband thinks I get far too may ideas for our reno from you! Too much work for him I think. Thanks again and keep the posts coming!

  25. Sounds like a beautiful start to Spring and to celebrate my new job !! Please count me in on your lovely giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ooooh - I love everything jasmine!
    I like to have very girly things in my bit of space in the bathroom - I live in a household of boys, so if it looks or smells too pretty they will definately leave these things alone, and I can have them all to myself!!

    I'm having a Spring giveaway too which I will be announcing on my blog tomorrow. Its sort of a little related.

    Cheers, Karen

  28. I must admit I only stumbled across your site a month ago but i have been avidly reading all of your old posts from the beginning to see the progress of the house to what it is now. You've done an amazing job- the study wallpaper is amazing! I also find your site great as i used to teach at Churchie and find all the updates of what's happening at the school with your boys such a lovely trip down memory lane. Such a great school hope they love it there. Count me in for the Spring Giveaway, sounds great!

  30. Oh yes, yes please. Love this brand.

  31. Jasmine and Tuberose - that would be a lovely smell of warm Summer nights to sustain me over the cold Winter months ahead. I think I need two homes - one in the nothern, one in the southern hemisphere and then I can live in perpetual Summer. :)

  32. What a fabulous idea - a spring giveaway, I have everything crossed that I am lucky enough to win!

  35. Hi A-M, felt it was time I made a comment on your blog as I follow you daily and love your beautiful new home - we are a few months behind you in the new house department and have a completion date of 16th October. I most certainly felt for you with your water dramas and painting dramas and hope it is all sorting itself out. We have been blessed with a quick build with not too many hiccups so I hope the next 6 weeks goes smoothly as well - check out my blog for some posts on the house - as we get lots of the final details in I will start posting more about the house. Look forward to watching your home daily. Leanne at MrsAinthecove

  41. Our son visited us while here on business. He and his family are Americans living in AU. That may be part of the reasons I love Aussie blogs. It gives me another glimpse into their lives.

    You home is lovely and you did a great job planning for a comfortable home.

  58. Your site is so inspiring- it has me dreaming of a future beach house in New England!

  59. That's awesome to smell like A-M, huh?

    These fragrance is divine. I have my English (pomme) colleague and she's advertising to all of the bank employees that the butter soap is really worth to try.

    Well, am always late to peep you in and you know the reason.

    C yah!

  60. My favourite! I would smell just like our garden when it flowers. Hmmmm heavenly. The lovely pink packaging would surely tempt my little girls to steal another item from my ensuite :-)

  61. Hello! I agree, Jasmine is so Spring! It has sprung here in SA too and the scent of jasmine is coming through my windows on this sunny morning. Love your blog, it is fabulous and my daily addiction too! K x

    ReplyDelete
  62. It feels like Spring here today - it's a whopping 16 degrees and I actually had to take my jumper off!
    Well, it is Victoria after all. Your giveaway looks beautiful, please count me in.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Such beautiful packaging - it almost looks too good to open. SInce I have sick kids at the moment my house (and therefore me too) smells like a combination of tea tree oil, Glen 20 and disinfectant... not nearlly as nice as these I am sure!

  64. Jasmine...the only fragrance I can smell at the moment is dirt, I LOVE the thought of smelling like Jasmine and not planting them...thank you for such a wonderful give away...:)Cate

  65. Even though we had a generally half-hearted Winter, I'm SO looking forward to Spring anyway! My tulips are blooming like crazy, my tiny vegetable garden is finally making an appearance, and all the wiry trees along my street are bursting with bright splashes of yellows and greens. Ah I love this time of year!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Ooo how lovely! We could use some springtime scents in the air over here in WA too, as I think spring has missed the memo so far about it being september already! Is it just me or is this year flying by?
    By the way, I think the hall runner is a great idea.. to cute not to go there :)
