who doesn’t want a bit of romance? [giveaway]

This is a collaboration with Bookworld

a little bit of romance

 I think that men know how to romance a woman and most do it well, at least for a time, otherwise women wouldn’t marry them. The problem is that most of them begin to rest on their laurels. ~ Nicholas Sparks

I think that most of us that have been with a significant other for any length of time can probably relate to Nick there.

Not to confuse love with romance but who doesn’t want to be unexpectedly swept off their feet every now and then.

Although who I am kidding, flowers are nice but sometimes romance can be him doing the dishes while you catch up on the latest episode of The Block.

Luckily, romance can always be found within the pages of a good book. I’ve got to admit, I’m a sucker for those lovey-dovey titles where boy meets girl, boy annoys girl, girl flounces off, boy redeems himself, boy and girl meet happily ever after.

This week at Bookworld it’s Romance Week with specials on different books and genres all week. Check back each day for new titles.

Plus get an  extra 15% off romance titles with the code BW-ROMANCEWK.  Just sign up to be a Bookworld Citizen (free) plus there’s free shipping for all purchases.

The lovely people at Bookworld are also giving away a book pack worth $155 with a selection of new romance titles including a signed copy of Nicholas Sparks’ The Longest Ride.

Just tell me what romance means to you. A grand sweeping gesture, surprise flowers, a proposal, or just something in the every day?

The fine print:
This giveaway is only open to Australian residents [sorry far-flung fans] and closes for entries on Monday, April 7 at 7pm. The winner will be contacted via email.

coming up, going out, diving in

It’s all new and shiny and clean around these parts at the moment.

And I’m riding the wave of motivation and doing a few new – or revamped – things around here, thanks to that fresh breeze that blew through.

You will notice a bit of a content swapsie. The weekends now have a to do list of ideas and inspiration [like here] and lime link love has moved to mid-week, for a little hump day distraction.

I’m trying to be a little looser with the calendar while still posting within some core categories and having a few surprises. I think I’m finally getting the hang of it.

The newsletter is making a comeback and will be coming out next week on a fortnightly plan. Sign up here or in the sidebar.

Life at Lime Lane is getting some love with some of the more homely, personal, style posts. Food, family and fun. That kind of thing.

And next is some love for Lime Lane Photography. Some new photos and the like.

I’m also in the process of rethinking and rearranging the shops.

I’ve been shifting the focus to society6 for art prints and other cool products like phone cases, clocks, cushions and shower curtains. It suits me down to the ground as I can upload, set and forget.

I’ve shut down my madeit store, too many irons and all that, and the Etsy store will focus on the little things ~ mini prints, odds and ends and stationery items.

In other news, I snagged the domains for limelane.photography and for my personal domain as well. Something shiny. Don’t know what I will do with them yet but hey, possibilities.

As always you can catch me on social media ~ check out the links under my bio.

And here’s to a great 2014!


Welcome back

green tea

Come in and sit down? Cup of tea?

The beach break took a little longer than expected but you’ll get that when you decide late on a long weekend that it’s time to have a revamp and you are also working all week.

But it’s the weekend, time to kick back and relax, throw open the windows and let the fresh breeze blow through.

A new look ~ lighter, cleaner, bigger photos. Probably still some hammering to do here and there but I think I will let the dust settle a bit first.

The beach break was a nice break for me, too, and at one point I thought about walking away. But I’ve put too much in to do that now so I walked straight back in again.

And you might notice a little badge over there in the sidebar. Yep, somebody absolutely lovely nominated me in Kidspot’s Voices of 2014.

Thank you, to that person, and to you who pop by, subscribe and read here.

You’ll have to excuse me, I have some blogging to do!
