From the end of the summer until early January is the busiest (and most expensive) time of year for us as a family as we have our anniversary, Lily's birthday, my birthday, Matt's birthday and nearly all of our family birthdays in addition to Christmas. So it obviously takes a lot of planning, and sale searching, during the summer to spread the costs (and stress) of picking out special gifts.
First up is Lily's birthday at the end of September. I've already started planning my ideas and designing the invitations for her birthday party. The theme has been decided. The venue has been booked. I've even picked up a few small gifts in the sales. Then, as I was browsing the Bloggers Required site, I came across this opportunity to host a giveaway for the lovely KAYA Jewellery website.
Intrigued, I took a look and was really taken by their gorgeous selection of Mother and Daughter bracelets. I try, wherever possible, to pick a sentimental gift for each birthday. Deep in my soul I am a real hoarder and I am extremely grateful to my Mum who kept so many special toys, cards and keepsakes from my own childhood. So I really like the idea of these bracelets as something to keep long after Lily's 4th birthday has passed.

Cherry Rose'. You can probably tell, but I'm quite keen on cherries! It's the literal translation of my surname and the inspiration for this blog.
three generations in one beautiful gift. Certainly something for me to consider with my Mummy's birthday coming up in August.
There are so many options available on the site, I'd definitely recommend taking a look around, there's something for everybody.
