Guess What?

Look what I just got in my in-box:

Dear Michelle,
Congratulations! You are a verified Grand Prize Winner!


All your daily clicks and telling a friend or two... or 200 ;) worked! It looks like a trip to NYC & a makeover are in my not too distant future (the trip details are still coming, it'll be next month)

I can't thank you guys enough for making this happen. There really are no adequate words to express the awesome feeling of support I felt from all of you. ♥ Thank you ♥ My Mum and I are super excited. I will blog it all of course and probably bore you to tears with pictures.

♥ Shell
