Happy 5th Birthday Rachel Nicole! + Win a £100 Giftcard!

February 24, 2015

Today marks the fifth year of me blogging! Rachel Nicole is now five years old! I can’t believe I’ve been doing it for half a decade. I started my blog which was originally entitled ‘Pretty Petticoats’ (stolen from The Kooks’ Ooh La) back when I finished Secondary School – I didn’t post a lot in the beginning but I still find it funny to look back at posts. I definitely have improved the photography on here!

This blog has provided a platform to share my opinions on different trends, celebrities style and also document my daily outfits and what’s going on in my life. I’ve learnt so much from doing this from and It’s given me so many opportunities that I am so grateful for. I’ve just come back from my fourth season at London Fashion Week which would have not been possible without this blog. I’ve collaborated with some amazing brands, been to great events and even made some great friends along the way.

The opportunities which have arose from this blog wouldn’t have ever happened without my readers. Which is why to mark my fifth anniversary I have teamed up with five different brands on five amazing giveaways. You getting the whole five theme? These giveaways will be running over the next five weeks with a new one posted every Monday. There’s some really great prizes and I’m very jealous of whoever wins these!

Today’s giveaway is for a £100 voucher for Joshua James Jewellery. The website stocks some gorgeous pieces from Pandora, Thomas Sabo, Micheal Kors, Swarovski and more! To be in with a chance of winning enter via the widget below. Good Luck everyone!

 Thanks to everyone who has read my blog or left a comment! I still can’t believe it’s been five years, maybe it’ll be another five years!

    Happy 5th Blogiversary and congratulations on all of the wonderful posts you've done on your blog over the course of the last five years! Being a lingerie aficionado and loving some pretty petticoats I've purchased and showcased in the past, I really loved your former blog name "Pretty Petticoats". I have also enjoyed reading and seeing the wide range of fashion reporting, outfits and hauls you've featured here on your blog. I hope you have a fabulous 6th year blogging as well.
