Help me out and win: Give-away!

Yes indeed..... You can win this adorable little "Cupcake package" containing;
1 x Cupcake lipbalm
1 x Cupcake band-aid box
1 x Cupcake shaped scented candle
1 x Box of vanilla flavoured cupcake mints (in a little metal-box)

I have seen this concept lately on a number of blogs that I follow and thought that this would be an excellent way to get some much needed feedback and at the same time thanking my blog-readers (that's YOU!) for reading this much needed little outlet of mine.....

So what do I need from you? All you have to do is answer the below questions by leaving your comment below and be my official blog-follower (register to the right by clicking the "Follow" button. If you are already a follower, just answer the questions ;)).

What brings you down?
What inspires YOU?
What is your favourite cupcake flavour, existing or just made up? ;)

So who will be the winner? I won't set an official time-limit as I have no idea how this will turn out, so my advice would be to hurry up ;) When time is officially over - I will comment below to let new readers know that the train has already passed...
When you have completed your "tasks" - your name will be written down on a piece of paper and then put in a hat, the traditional way. The name that gets picked will be the winner and I will then contact you for shipping details.......ok? Grrrrrreat!!!

Wish upon a cupcake......and Good luck!

    I adored Raindrops keep falling on my head and was also very happy to find Joshua Radin that I had never previously listened to. I have however liked all posts so far and can see that the content is improving.

    It would be fun to have shopping-tips with different price-ranges. As an example, if you find a nice green designer sweater to also find something similar in less expensive ranges like you can sometimes find in magazines, "cheap", "Reasonable" & "Designer".

    Injustice and hormones.....

    Brave people, individualism and love

    Hmm. German chocolate sounds amazing right now! I LOVE german chocolate frosting. It is so bizzare! But I would also love to try making those rainbow cupcakes I have been seeing around in blue, violet, and pink! They would have vanilla frosting and loads of sprinkles. I love love love all types of sprinkles!

  9. Hi Linda!

    My favourite post so far has to be the movie tips and i LOVE your photos! You have great taste! ;)

    I would like to see more fun tips of clothes, decorating etc from your life.

    Brings me down.. hmm that would be people who lie about me.. and i do not like the "Jantelag"- people in sweden that just can't let people be happy and sucsessful without trying to bring them down.:(

    Inspires me.. wow that is a LOT of things and people.. of course my lovely family, mt children and also all the happy people in this world.. people that do what they wanna do and aint afraid of taking that leap!
    I love the ocean.. the sun and as you.. the coulors of fall!

    wow.. cupcake flavour.. well there is soo many good one.. and the thing is that the frosting has to be good or the whole cupcake fails..
    i love the vanillabean flavour and also the cheesecake sith Philly frosting.. yum!
    And they taste sooo much better if they are decorated with cute hearts and pearls etc ;)

    Take care Linda!
    see you one day in Köping maybe!
    Kraaaam!

  10. PART I

    Hmmm my comments were too long, so I have to split them... ;-)

    So I guess I’m the last one answering your questions right? God, it’s so typical me and I guess that's one of the things bringing me down – me being a JIT person and not being able to change… (or well “able” is probably not the correct word, me being tooooo lazy to change is unfortunately the correct one...) And I can tell you, it is NOT a good thing being a JIT person if you work in accounting!!!!! But on the other hand – better late than never! ;-)

    ♥ Which has been your favorite post so far on this blog?
    God Linda, it is sooooo hard to choose a favorite post on this blog, then I just LOVE most of them, especially your diary posts about Sweden and your family. I just love, love, love these and I recognize myself and my feelings soooo much, sometimes too much. ;-(

    It just makes me happy reading your blog – your enthusiasm, your inspiration, the way you express your feelings, thoughts, emotions, ideas, taste and impression…It is not like I'm sitting in front of the computer reading these things – I always get the feeling you are sitting in front of me telling me all this stuff.

  11. PART II

    ♥ What would you like to see more of on this blog?
    Hmmm, this is a really difficult one… You have a really good mix with the diary blogs, the movie and music recommendations, the recipes, the shopping ideas (although I have to confess, I avoid these ones – I really do NOT need more ideas how to spend all my money. That might be a good thing to blog about – how to avoid spending your entire salary on clothes and shoes and still be happy ;-D).

    As mentioned above, I love the way your blog makes me happy and I think you should just keep posting the things you are posting - there are enough blogs out there, letting the reader know what the blogger had for lunch or that the blogger just cleaned the loo and honestly – how interesting is that?

    I loved your blog “Sweden vs. Switzerland” – but here is something to think about: How come all Swedes abroad are missing Sweden so incredibly much? Why are we so proud of our country, the traditions and the food? Why are we hanging on to everything that is Swedish? I have NEVER EVER met another nationality missing their home country so much. What is it that makes Sweden so magical? And if we miss Sweden so much, why just not stop complaining and missing and just move back home? What is the reason we are choosing to stay abroad? Is it just a typical Swedish thing? I am one of them - I’ve been living abroad for 10 years, I miss Sweden so much that it sometimes hurts, I love going to IKEA buying all the Swedish food, I love celebrating the Swedish traditions and I love going home for holiday, but still I know I am probably never going to move back “home”. Why?

  12. PART III

    ♥ What brings you down?
    There are the things bringing every normal human being down - war, child abuse, murder, terrorism, rape, liars, people disappointing you, being away from your loved ones etc – things which have unfortunately become a natural part of our every day life…

    And then there are those small, sometimes almost invisible, things happening (or in many cases not happening) around you everyday that have a huge impact on your mood. Things which are sometimes so unimportant that it is embarrassing. Things like missing the bus, not finding the shoes you want in the right size, realizing that it is Monday AGAIN and that you have to work for a whole week, irritating colleagues, promising your self that this will be the LAST chocolate bar you eat just to find your self with a new bar in your hands an hour later, working long hours, realizing that Starbucks will never open a coffee shop in Schaffhausen, opening your email account just to notice that you didn’t get that email you’ve been waiting for (but at the same time, that email that you don’t even know if you want) today either, friends convinced that a life without a partner is not a life worth living etc etc etc.

    But what really brings me down at the moment is all the people around me, including myself, having all those dreams, but NOT living them. Why are we so afraid? What is the worst thing that can happen?

    Although we do not know each other very well yet, I guess you have already figured out that there is a looooot of things bringing me down and what I’ve realized the last couple of months is that the line between things bringing me down and things making me happy is extreeeeeeeemly thin…

    ♥ What inspires YOU?
    People like you (;-D), family, friends, people living their dreams, movies, good weather, music, nature, love, days like today (sunny, blue sky +1°C…) , nature, love, new cultures, travelling...

    ♥ What is your favourite cupcake flavour, existing or just made up? ;)
    Well I guess I am extremely boring, but I have to go for a homemade apple and cinnamon muffin… But if I could create one =>I am absolutely crazy about chocolate and mint, so I guess that could really become a new favorite!

    Thank you for your blog Linda! Just keep inspiring, surprising and enjoying us Linda!!!!
