Giveaway: Ask Ashe Blog 5th birthday

So the Ask Ashe blog turns 5 this month.
Yes, 5 whole years of me ranting, raving and sharing all sorts of stuff – the stuff in my head, the stuff in my heart, the stuff of my dreams, any stuff made in white, cool décor and design stuff, the cool stuff made in Durban, the market stuff, the stuff you need to know on places to go, eat, drink, be entertained and the stuff you can read online. Ok yes, and much more stuff.

To thank you for being on this journey with me, I’ve got a WINNER-TAKES-ALL giveaway which will make one lucky person very stuffing happy :)

I’ve been privileged to work with some amazing sponsors and people over the years and am more than delighted to feature these awesome sponsors in this giveaway. Each is a product or company I am proud to recommend and trust you will love the awesome gifts they have contributed to this giveaway.

A BOS cooler bag filled with BOS ice tea, a frisbee, keyring and memory stick

The sexy packaging alone is enough to make you want to drink it, so it’s great that BOS is delicious too! Their range of refreshing organic rooibos ice teas are blended with all-natural fruit flavours – peach, lemon, apple, berry, lime & ginger (my fave) – and they are preservative, colourant and caffeine free. If you’re looking for a thirst quencher and energy refresher after being active, make sure to try new BOS Sport too.

A preloaded R500 Vida e caffe card
My brain doesn’t get started these days until I’ve had my Vida flat white – so woe betide the person who tries to get anything remotely productive out of me beforehand ;)
The baristas at Vida are infectiously happy, friendly and they make a damn fine cup of caffeine!
And if you need cooling down, I dare you not to like a gelado or better yet, a chocolate frio – sinfully good!

    Congrats on the 5 years :-) Hi, my name is Lynn and I’m from the beautiful mothercity.. Cape Town. My world revolves around my family.. i have a 3 year old and a 2 year old (yip.. crazzzzy as I’m turning 40 next year) so between jugging my job, husband and toddlers, there isn’t really much for anything else. I love to bake (when i get a chance alone in the kitchen :-) and family is the most important thing to me.
