Tulchan Surprise

A while ago I got a surprise mail from Tulchan. Would I be willing to review one of their cardigans from the new collection if they sent it to me? Would I??? 

I was contacted by Gemma, Tulchan's Digital & Direct Marketing Executive, and I was absolutely thrilled. Over the moon. Tickled pink. The cardigan on the photo was gorgeous. It was even more so when it arrived. I mean, look at it!

Gemma told me she had been reading my blog and she liked the way I had styled my Tulchan pieces. I have a great many Tulchan pieces, FYI, Tulchan is one of my favourite brands. It took me a while to come up with styling ideas for this beauty. And finally, ta-dah ...

Outfit No 1

Outfit No 2

Outfit No 3

I mentioned to Gemma that I absolutely love Tulchan socks, I am a proud owner of a rather pretty selection, and she was so kind as to pop a little surprise in the post, along with the cardigan! Aren't they absolutely gorgeous as well? 

I was very happy to receive the pretty blue package. This is the very first sponsor item in my closet, and I couldn't be happier. 

Thank you so much, Tulchan!

Outfit details:

1 Tulchan cardigan styled with Joules brogues, tights can't remember, Boden denim skirt, belt from local supermarket, Boden white top

Tulchan cardigan styled with Vagabond flats, Topshop cargos, Benetton belt, EK top

Meet Your Neighbours©

One of my many beautiful birthday presents this year, 
from my big brother & his family!

My big bro is an avid nature photographer, he contributes to many renowned nature photography magazines, including National Geographic Slovenija, and he participates in a very interesting project, Meet Your Neighbours©. He knows all about my love for Scotland, and the first pic was taken especially for me :) 

Thank you so much, I loved my present!

Right, so sorry about that. Last year apparently wasn't exactly my best blogging year. I stopped publishing sometime in October, even though there were many ideas at the back of my mind that I wanted to share with you. I kept taking pictures for a while but once I realized I couldn't find any time for posting them I stopped that as well. 

We're well into the new year already, my birthday has passed (I always associate my birthday with Christmas & New Year holidays, as I was born on January 6), and hopefully my blogging energy will restore. I did something a good blogger would never do, I guess, I posted the old photos with the approximate dates they were meant to be posted - once again, sorry about that. I can't promise to be a regular contributor in 2015 but I will do my best. I still very much enjoy following your blogs, though!

And if my blog is a sort of an unfinished project, here's another one! I've wanted to crochet a blanket for aaages, and I've had these granny squares made for at least two years, but I somehow can't bring myself to actually finish the darn thing. So here's to a challenge in 2015! Will keep you posted on the progress, I promise!
