I'll hold my hands up and admit. I love a giveaway as much as the next girl and I expect that you all do too!
While I have done quite a few in the past, I wanted to put together something different for you this Winter to beat the cold days we seem to be in the midst of right now. Of course, this being The Residents, I couldn't just do any old giveaway! I had to make it special and unique to YOU GUYS and all the wonderful brands I have built INCREDIBLE relationships with over the last 2.5 year. Which is why I decided to make the value of the giveaway the same as the length I've been running this blog - $2500 worth of product for 2.5 years! *see what I did there*

Coffee Supreme - 3x Bags!
It couldn't be a Wellington themed giveaway without coffee! Coffee Supreme is my neighbourhood local and I have SO much respect for this iconic Wellington brand. They have kindly donated three bags of their finest grind, which will be sure to rock your socks. Starting in 1993, Coffee Supreme have stuck around where others have come and gone. They now have a roastery over the ditch and are loved for their epic Custom's coffee bar on Ghuznee Street where you can get all the coffee under the sun. What a great reason to enter this EPIC giveaway ;)

Wilson Trollope Voucher
Annabelle Wilson, the designer of Wilson Trollope, has become my homegirl. She makes the most beautiful designer clothing which I adore and suits women of all ages and sizes. Her dresses are understated yet demand attention because of their classic silhouette. She's a talented young woman and someone I love to support because she works SO hard and is really authentic. She's kindly donated a $360 voucher. Check out some of her designs in a recent post I wrote about working a capsule wardrobe.
Meniscus Leather Goods Handbag - Whiskey Tote
I wear my bag by Meniscus Leather Goods, made right here in Wellington, nearly every single day! So I had to include one in this very special giveaway. This bag has lots of room, and fits an Apple MacBook easily, including a case. It will take you all around the city, and beyond. I truly love wearing mine and I am so grateful that I found them. It is so sturdy and well-made, this is one of my favourite products in the giveaway.

A Tribeca Skin tonics Rose Quartz Facial Roller
You may think that a rose quartz facial roller is a frivolous thing, but I adore mine. This giveaway includes a Rose Quartz Facial Roller, worth $60, just for you. Rose Quartz is one of the most incredible healing crystals; it eases stress in the body, calms anxiety and promotes self love. looks beautiful and is fantastic at massaging the product into your skin. I got mine on the recommendation of my beauty-guru friend Amelia. If you want one of your own, check out her website.
A Daniel Wellington Bayswater Watch
Daniel Wellington may not be made in Wellington - but hey! It's all the name, right? Seriously though, I am a big fan of this elegant and sophisticated line of watches which was made famous on Instagram. You can win a Daniel Wellington Watch in this giveaway! Daniel Wellington has a really interesting backstory because it has become a multi-million-dollar brand just through social media marketing. I have three watches from Daniel Wellington which I rotate but my new favourite is the Bayswater, a unisex watch in rose gold that is timeless and goes with all my outfits. If you can't wait and want one for yourself, I have had a code (which I hope still works!) TR 15 which will give you 15% off. Go to www.danielwellington.com/nz to get yours.
Books from Penguin Books NZ
Penguin Books is one of the world most well known and loved book publishers. I love to read and so when Penguin Books NZ and I connected I was excited to be able to review their new release books. Reading is what got me into writing and writing is what I know and love. Read some of my previous reviews here and here. I've selected three books that I think you'll love published by Penguin: The Art of Simple, by Eleanor Ozich + Option B, by Sheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook) + Hideaways - a book all about the holiday homes that Kiwis sneak away to around the country.
When I work out, I ALWAYS wear Ipanema Girl NZ. Founded by the delightful Auckland based Ekaterina, this is an internationally inspired New Zealand brand that I collaborate with at least annually. I love their well made Brazillian fitness wear. While I might not be the picture of a Brazilian fitness model, Ipanema Girl products made me look like one. They hold you in where you need to be held in and look good as new, even after multiple washes. Their fitness clothing is really strong and sturdy, even for the most frequent exerciser. Check out their website here. Ipanema girl have donated a $400 fitness wear voucher for this giveaway.
