Things Im loving....Giveaway!


Hi bloggers...guess what it's GIVEAWAY time! I feel so OPRAH! Except her prizes are worth like, thousands of dollars more...but hey! Gotta love a good giveaway!
So today Im linking in with Kristy's Things Im loving and then giving you a chance to win them. It in celebration of my 100th post. I know right!? 100 posts is kinda a big deal for me. And as a Thank you for reading my blog! I wouldn't bother doing it if nobody read it...so thanks!

Things Im loving.
Esk Valley Coffee beans from the Beanlab, Whangarei. Roasted locally in my town. Loving the taste...and I'm just a bit fussy when it come to great coffee. Heres where you can buy some of your own if you really want. If you are local, I can give you their Email and they deliver to your door like they do mine. Or you could drop by and have a cuppa with me...I'll share I promise ;)... Love it!Also loving Holly Wagner's new book "God Chicks and the Men they love". She and her husband pastor a church in Hollywood. When Hubby and I were newly married Holly and her husband visited my city and did a relationship seminar over two nights. They had us in stitches, just funny and very honest about their relationship. I learned so much from them. On the night I won her book "Dumb things we do" which I was hoping to find for the giveaway but my bookshop only had this one which is actually better I think, because it has a mans perspective too. They seem to know that men hate reading books on relationships and have little summary chapters that are a page long just for them...too clever! It is not only for married couples but also for young God chicks looking forward to that special someone and what to look out for. A great read.
And finally whats not to love about Lindt chocolate...Do I need to say any more about it! Only the best chocolate ever!


So there you have it! Just make sure your following me and leave a little comment telling me about your favourite marriage book, favourite chocolate or coffee brand and your email so I can contact you if you win. I don't mind posting it overseas too. I will draw it next week. Good luck!

I love a good coffee because it puts me in the mood to eat any chocolate to keep me shapley!! and a good book makes my husband happy because he sees me sitting still relaxing and he likes that :):)

Elizabeth said...

Oh, oh, oh - I want that book! We're on the look-out for another couples book!

Okay - fav coffee is (I know, I know) Nescafe Gold BUT my hubby LOVES hummingbird and basically anything 'real' in his eyes (prefers beans as we have one of those things that chops the beans up)!!!!

Fav marriage books so far are Shaunti Feldhan 'For Men Only' and 'For Women Only'.

And chocolate - well, as long as it's chocolate anything goes. Although I do have a weakness for Whittakers Dark Ghana Peppermint!

Love you post, and love your blog! Congrats on 100 posts! My fave marriage book so far is "Growing great marriages" by Ian and Mary Grant, fave choc - old gold dark choc peppermint, and fave coffee is... well I dont drink coffee but hubsy LOVES it. Does that make me banned from the competition?!

Muddled Up Mumma said...

Well done on your 100 posts. Great to stumble across your blog this weekend. My favourite chococate also happens to be Lindt. I especially love the 70% Cocoa dark chocolate that goes so well with a nice glass of red on a chilly night.

CHD said...

Fav coffee is whatever my husband makes for me. Fav book is Gary Chapman's The Five Love Languages- we read it just after we got married and it really helped us understand each other. Fav choc- I can never go past mint. Great give away. Thanks.

Kiwi Cakes said...

Wowee, Funny how you can miss something in your own town.I just ordered from Coffee Supreme in Wellington (tonight - 5 mins before reading this)I love the chocolate you are offering up, so creamy & subtle YUM!

Sima J said...

Wow a hundy posts .. very impressive!
fav book: Sheet Music (although I'll admit it's about the only one I've read! But it was really good!)
fav coffee: Anything Fairtrade is good! We grind our beans and use them in our machine each morning and I LOVE it!
fav choc: Black Forest is still at the top, unfortunately I don't feel fabulous about supporting Cadbury with the whole deforestation thing (Whitakers need to make a black forest choc!)

Widge said...

Wow what a fab giveaway! Gave coffee is nestle caramel latte ( those ones that come in sahets) iiiiiiiiiiiiiii know that must sound terrible to an actual coffee pro like yourself! Love lindt choc and I read a great marriage book last year called the proper care and feeding of husbands. Also reading a good one at the mo called love and respect what she do despretly craves and what he so desperately needs. Sorry can't remember the authors...
Congrats on 100!!!!!!!

Oops! Scuse my typos :0

Great giveaway! And well done on 100 posts! I can't live without chocolate and my favourite is actually the Lindt chocolate, particularly their chilli chocolate bar! As for marriage books, well I haven't read a ton to be honest so I can't say I have a favourite. And fav coffee is fresh Heaven Espresso by my good friend Arron, so good even my previously non coffee drinking hubby is now hooked!

Rachel Kate said...

Hmm that's a hard one... At the moment we are reading thru Men are like waffles and women like spaghetti but can't remember who wrote it. Very funny and inspiring! Fav chocolate is Ferrero Rondnoir dark chocolates and also Old Gold, and as for coffee well I haven't really been drinking much of it since I got pregnant but Esquires do a very nice cappuccino decaf. Can't believe you're at 100 yay that's so awesome. Keep up the great posts. Loads of love xo

The South African Kiwis said...

Ooh I've heard of men are like waffles - on the lookout for it actually! Maybe by the same people who wrote Red Hot Monogamy?
The most effective marriage book for me has been Becoming The Woman of His Dreams by Sharon Jaynes. Pieter likes The Love Dare and did it last year. Boy, was that an interesting 40 days!
I don't have a favourite chocolate - I love them all, although, SA Nestle does a cappuccino chocolate which was milk on the bottom, white on the top with coffee in it. I miss it....
BUT I'm with Widge on the Nestle Caramel Lattes... YUMMO!
Congrats on 100 posts!

Meghan at MNM's said...

Hey Jacksta, congrats on 100! I love the Lindt Chilli and Sea Salt chocolate :-) Favourite coffee would be Ripe - it's a local yokel brand down here in Welly. And marriage book well....hmmm...have I even read one? Crikey don't know if I have..that probably means I'm sadly in need!!!! Should be able to reply to this post for contact. Hope you're having a great weekend!!!

Gail said...

YUMMMMMMM and Yay for your 100!!! I would love to be into win - but will let someone else this time. Though..... it all looks fab. xx

Clare H said...

Hey Jackie, ooooh this looks SO good, love it chickie! Well I love coffee and since I haven't tried many kiwi ones of late I would have to say I love Vitoria coffee and Lindt chocolate is de-vine! Hubby and I read 'Love and War' by John and Stasi Eldredge this year (together) - it was so so good. And congrats on the 100 posts - I love your blog! Bless ya

Leonie said...

Not a coffee drinker but have a Dad who is addicted and is having his 65th birthday next week!
I also like the Shaunti Feldman books....

Congrats on hitting 100! :)My hubby is a major coffee drinker and his favourite is Pioneer http://www.coffeeroastery.com.au/ They roast it right then and there in the shop so it is gorgeous and fresh! :)

My most favourite marriage book is written by Nancy Cobb called: 'The Politcally Incorrect Wife'. I have been married for 7 years now, so it is nice to reread and refresh! I am interest in reading some of Holly Wagner's stuff. I went to the Hillsong Colour Conference in Sydney last year and it was the first time I had heard of her. She is one funny chick!

My most favourite chocolate in all the universe is Ferrero Rocher....closely followed by Milk Choc Lindt balls. Mmmmm....chocolate......
