Oh man, I have a lot to tell you guys about and I must warn you that I am insanely excited. Of course the thing is that when I am this excited, I have a tendency to ramble, and then the more I ramble, the more I digress and I’ll go completely off track until… squirrels… camels…tacos…
Ummmm where were we?
That’s right… my news.
So I have literally been busting at my britches to tell you about what has been going on behind the scenes lately, and now… finally, the time has come that I can let the cat out of the bag.
HOLY FLIPPING CHEESE BALLS - I’M GOING TO DUBAI AND ONE OF YOU GUYS AND A FRIEND COULD BE COMING WITH ME!!!
I know right!
Please excuse my overuse of the exclamation marks and shouty capitals but, slap me silly and call me Billy, I can’t breathe because I am that excited.
OK, let’s go back a few steps so I can give you the full story.
So recently, Life Love and Hiccups was invited to join the fabulous Nuffnang Bloggerati team. For those of you who are shaking your heads and wondering what the hell I am talking about -Nuffnang is the blogging agency, who will be handling all of my brand relationships for me moving forward.
Now, as far as you my awesome readers are concerned, you won't notice much difference on the blog front. My blog has been under the care of a blogging agent for the past two years anyway so nothing much will change from your perspective.
What it essentially means is that Nuffnang will be helping me to connect with the brands that I would love to work with so that I can continue to create content on this blog that I am truly passionate about.
Makes sense right?
Now here’s the part where I have multiple bruises all over my body from all the constant pinching I have been doing these past few weeks. I, along with 20 other Australian Nuffnang bloggers, will be heading off in December for an incredible Blogger getaway to Dubai, sponsored by Dubai Tourism.
Sweet Baby Cheeses…
Never in a gazillion years would I have ever imagined that this blog would see this super klutzy mum of 3 from the Northern Beaches going anywhere like Dubai.
To be totally honest, I didn’t know a great deal about Dubai before this all came to life.
At first, I pictured myself as Carrie Bradshaw with her Sex and the City pals walking through the desert in gorgeous outfits and high heels… but when I watched the movie again I realised that they were actually in Abu Dhabi, and furthermore I don’t own a single outfit as flashy as theirs, and I can't walk in high heels to save my life.
So I did what I always do when I need answers… I turned to the internet and Googled the bejeezers out of Dubai.
Up came pages and pages of camel safaris and traditional bazaars, the world’s largest mall and manmade islands, underwater zoos, extravagant buildings, restaurants and mosques, and I did what I always do when I get this excited about something… pretty much what I am doing now… I pee a lot and forget to breathe.
Now, as for you guys… you better have gone to the toilet and be holding your breath too because one of you and a friend will be joining us bloggers on this trip of a lifetime.
The winner of this competition and their +1 will receive return flights from their nearest capital city, accommodation and activities in Dubai and will be travelling with the Nuffnang Bloggerati team on this incredible adventure.
