giveaway: $100 swimspot voucher

Happy Monday! It’s about time I did a giveaway on this blog, right? Well, here we go! A love of water is a pretty innate part of being Australian, so it’s no wonder that I try and spend as much time at the beach or near a pool as possible. And a good pair of swimmers are a must for such activities! Which is why I am really excited to be hosting this giveaway. On offer here is a $100 voucher for The site stocks a whole bunch of designer swimwear from labels such as Luxe, Ella Moss, and Splendid. Above are just two of my favourites (read: what I’d get if I had the $100 to spend!) For those who are iffy about purchasing swimwear online, the site also has a ‘Fit Specialist Team‘ who are able to provide you with personalised fitting advice. You can’t go wrong, really. For those currently experiencing a northern hemisphere winter, swimwear is probably the last thing on your mind. But just think of this as getting a head start on your summer wardrobe! For those in southern hemisphere, this is a perfect way to make the most of the last rays of summer.
All you need to do to enter is comment on this post. Also, just for fun, pop on over to the swimspot website and let me know what you’d spend the $100 on. Remember to leave an email address or some other way for me to contact you if you win.
This competition is open to all readers. One entry per person. Entries close on 12 February 2011 at 11:59pm AEST. A winner will be chosen at random, and will be announced on 14 February, 2011 (Valentine’s Day – nawwww).
Good luck!

  22. Merowyn January 31, 2011

    I saw this givewaway this morning and the thought process went like this:


    yes, I have no bathers… nada.. zip… threw them out at the start of summer… stupid I know…

    Then the thought process went like this:

    "I'm NEVER going to win. I win nothing. Wah wah wah… not going to enter"

    But you entered mine, so hear goes!!

    I would probably pick something from the Splendid range, love Splendid!! They have such fun colours in their range.
