Celebrating a prosecco moment & a weekend giveaway: NOW CLOSED

I am a ginormous believer of celebrating now. Right this moment, do something that makes you happy (well, after you finish reading this blog post of course). Kiss the cat, hug a friend, change the screensaver on a work colleagues computer to something silly, book in brunch, sit back and properly enjoy a cup of tea - whatever it is that makes the cockles of your heart warm.


Languidly luxuriate in the moment. Go on, I dare ya.


Call someone you love, buy your boss a pack of wasabi coated peanuts, smile at a stranger, congratulate someone through facebook on something they are proud of, plan a delicious meal featuring your favourite flavour, book in a birthday bevvie, tell a cheesy joke that makes everyone groan, watch a youtube video of a cat drinking water.

 
The wine buffs at Waitrose Cellar kindly sent me a couple of their delicious prosecco bottles in order to create something very special out of the ordinary. We simply celebrated a safe return to normal London life after a weekend away in Amsterdam (and slightly frenetic dash through Brussels train station).


Believing firmly in karma, I've decided I simply want to share the love. One bottle of prosecco will wing it's way to someone who comments on the post below (UK entries only I'm afraid!). Names will be drawn old school from a hat on Monday morning, and the bubbly popped in the post as soon as you instruct me where to send it to.

How and what would you celebrate with your bottle of bubbles?

UPDATE: And the winner is, Dani!

  1. You can leave me out of the drawing - I'm not much of a drinker these days, but I still wanted to comment and tell you how much I LOVE that photo of the glasses on the beach. What a stunning shot! I want to be there right now!

  2. I love celebrating too! Right now I'm celebrating by enjoying blogs with coffee and porridge :) It's my birthday in a couple of weeks and I've planned about 5 posts to celebrate ;)

    Lots of love,

  3. Aw how wonderful. I agree with Sarah, that photo is superb. It reminds me of the holiday I just took with my mum. We have a new tradition of having chips from the chippy and some prosecco on the balcony when we go to this particular place.
    In the name of making something special out of the ordinary I would treat my dad to his favourite take away curry and open some fizz to celebrate his birthday. Just him and me :)

  7. It's my birthday tomorrow (Sunday) and the blog will be 2 years old. I'll be celebrating by arriving home from holiday terribly jetlagged but tanned so wouldn't some champagne go down awfully well!

  10. It's my 30ths birthday (eeek) exactly two weeks today. I'm not sure whether I want to celebrate or run away and hide.
    Thanks for the kind giveaway

  11. After this moment, I am going to do something I enjoy -- sleep. :) Prosecco would be lovely, but it is probably a bit too early/late (!?) for that. Have a good night! x
