So every once in a while I get some awesome messages from readers of my blog-and of course they ALWAYS have great things to say!

So this morning-I got a message from a nice man from England named Lee!  WHOA!  You betcha-guess I can say "Joey is worldwide!" ha.  Just kidding.  If that's the case I'd love to meet someone from Australia so that I can come visit sometime! ha.

Anyway-Lee had this to say:


My name is Lee and I work for a British advertising agency. We found your blog and your Snowed in post got me thinking of our recent snow day’s in London. Not so much fun here either as it causes travel mayhem :( Whilst reading your blog I felt that a campaign we’re working on might be relevant for you and your readers.

On February 18th, our client Next Direct is launching in America and to celebrate we are running a children’s modelling competition to find a 4-7 year old who will become the face of Next Direct, win a $100,000 college scholarship fund and one year contract with Wilhelmina Models.  Entry will open on our Facebook page at 7am EST on February 18th, 2010 and mums can send in photos of their child who will appear in a voting gallery for the public to choose our new model! Fifty finalists will be invited to Universal Studios on April 24th where we will choose a winner.

Next are one of Britain’s most popular brands – there are over 650 Next stores worldwide selling classic-contemporary fashion for men, women and children, plus stylish furniture and homewares. As Europe’s biggest fashion e-tailer (with a global online presence through Next Direct), the brand is at the forefront of home-shopping too!

Thanks for promoting our new store and love your blog!


Pretty cool site!  Of course you know me and my addiction love to shopping!

I checked out the site-asap!

Gotta admit.. when I think European-I think SKINNY!!!  But.. good news for us chubbies Americans- they have plus sizes and great maternity clothes!

Now.. I don't have a 4-7 yr old-but I'd love to help your babes become a star!

((If you win-you gotta let me know about it!!  k?  =)  ))

Ok-this MUM is off to Gymboree. 

Have a great day!
