Happy Blogiversary to meeee!! 

Well, i can’t say its Rachel The Hat’s anniversary as technical (due to a name change) i haven’t been Rachel The Hat for a year, BUT i have been blogging for a year which in my books is cause for celebration.

 Some of you have been with me since the beginning and others have joined along the way and some fairly recently. For all of you i am truly grateful. I could go in to a Gwyneth Paltrow style speech to thank you all as you really mean the world to me, tuning in each week and sharing your time with me and leaving such lovely words, but i wont (i promise!)

So, what has to thumbs and is EXTREMELY happy to have you here?


Thank you, thank you (tears, wipes nose) THANK YOU!!

So what does a girl do on her blogiversary? She gets dressed up and prances about whilst her hubby photographs it for the that very Blog!

So in honour of this special occasion i would like to present to you 

 One lucky winner will win:

I wanted to pick things that best represent what i love to wear on this blog:
Bright colourful bag by one of my favourite shops; Next, for more pics of this divine bag go see it HERE. Combining all my favourites, bright colours, florals and spots this bag is a little slice of heaven.
No7 Red and Blue nail polish, ‘cos they are my fav colours as you all know! Then finally No 7 bright Red lipstick and matching liner. Red lippy makes me feel happy and well put together.

I hope you love these things as much as i do!

All you have to do is be a follower of Rachel The Hat by either Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin’  and let me know in the comments below

Extra Entries:
Follow me on Twitter @RachelTheHat
Follow me on Instagram @RACHELTHEHAT
(links to both twitter and instagram are up the top of the blog on the left hand-side)
Leave a separate comment for each as they will be counted as individual entries, which if you would like to do all 3 that will get you 3 entries!
Good Luck! 
Giveaway is open to all and will be drawn on Friday 15th June!

Thank you all again for making this a fab journey for me. I’m so looking forward to my 2nd year of blogging and can’t wait to see where it takes me, hope you all stick around for the ride!


Ps. Sooo wish i could play dress up every day, this outfit was so fun!
