GIVEAWAY: Be my February Girl

It has always been a little ambition of mine to design clothes. When I was a teen I designed and made jewellery with my company ‘The Bead Hive’ (see here), and now I’m beginning to venture into the clothing idea. So I have decided to make a giveaway of my first, very simple, creation: a printed t-shirt.

February is my birthday month and if it’s anything like January, will be wet and dreary. So I want to make it a tiny bit brighter for one of you with a simple white t-shirt, easy to wear with anything, with the cute pink ‘February girl’ logo on the front; inside will be sewn one of my unique ‘thoroughlymodernmilly’ name tags. The t-shirt is a small, but is on the big side, and for those who are more petite: you can cut the seams and customise it as a baggy cropped tee - that’s what I’m doing with mine! Along with the t-shirt I will be throwing in some Mac make-up, yet to be decided on.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of being crowned the ‘February girl’ is:

1) Be a follower on my page, and tell me your name

2) Tell me in no more than 50 words, what is special about February for you and write it as a comment below.

Competition open to all readers worldwide, winner will be announced on Valentine’s Day, 14th February.

But now we've rented a house and me, my husband, my parents and all my siblings and their boyfriends and girlfriends and my little nephew are going away together. Can't wait!

    I agree, feb is the month of love. and birthdays of people i loove. :) haha. it's also the month after new year's, when you can truly appreciate life after the darkest days of winter and yet still be a snow bunny! :)

    I'm following you with GFC as Laura,

    ♥ Laura

  40. Aw I love your blog!

    Well, February is special to me because it is my best friends birthday month :) He never makes a big deal out of his birthdays so I like to spend each day of the month letting him now he will be one day older very soon! Haha! Beautiful shirt btw♥

  41. Hi I love this idea and I am glad you are doing something to beat the January blahs, which we are seem to be suffering, even here in the sunny southern California. Please sign me up for the give away!

  42. Well my name is Saima, and Febuary is special to me because every Febuary there is a Vintage fair in London!! I cant wait to shop till i drop. Also Valentines day makes me realize I dont need a partner to make me happy my friends are enough for me.

  43. February is when people realise that no-one is more important than their loved ones. February may be wet and rainy, but it captures the most beautiful moments in the world. Success does not come from the head but from the heart. May February be rainy and wet, all the love and passion comes alive. And even though I know I will absolutely not win, I know at least that February is when someone, somewhere will love me.

    My name is Molly Mercurio, I live just outside London, by Richmond, and I want to be known as a peace-maker.

  44. Hey, My name is Mana and to me febuary is special because it's a month of love, joy, and happiness. Even though it's during winter, you will always feel special on febuary. I like how it's just in the middle of winter and spring so it's a moment of calmness during the two seasons that brings together couples on valentines day.

  45. Glad you've liked my blog, love this idea of the giveaway, I'm following you now too :)

    My name is Mara,
    And next Sunday I'll be in a plane to London with my boyfriend and the 14th would be our anniversary and our first Valentine's day together. I think it's a beautiful month to spend with the ones you love in spite of the cold and foggy days.


  46. hi, I'm Penny Lane. Thank you so much for your cute comment about my blog :)! I'm so glad you like it! I'm really into that Tee, it's great!
    So, let's see...What do I love about february?
    First strawberries in the market, winter walks through the park, museum's exhibitions, cold rainy days, pleasant cool sunny days, always a short vacation with friends (sometimes to a big city, sometimes to the country), red tea, february air- lights (acoustic version), my cat's birthday (silly, but always funny), and this tee :)

    PL ♥

  47. hi, my name is Mar Fernández.

    I kinda like February for many reasons, one is because a new year has just begun and this month is not as stressful as January, with all those New Years' resolutions. In Feb you can actually see how the year will go and what mood you have towards it. And I also love it because it means that Spring is coming :)

    one big kiss!

  48. Hi, I'm Miss LT.

    I love February because:

    1. No council tax to pay

    2. It is becoming increasingly lighter when I
    finish work

    3. Not long till my next pay day.


  49. Hi, I'm Elsie. Thanks for the sweet comment and the follow- although my crazy blog hasn't let it shown up! This is why I love February for a bit of fun:

    As the first sun begins to glare through, you know that Spring is coming, but Winter still remains. Chills and thrills, and baking and fires, and sitting and waiting, and walking and rushing, and raining. I sit and wonder often in February why it is so grey, then I remember that it only comes once and make the most of it! Sometimes I feel like jump up, and shouting and releasing all that Summer locked up in me, but I don't, we are all far too drained. But then I do, as it's only February once a year. Thank Goodness for that!

  50. I think I'm abit late but thanks for the follow and comment really meant alot x

  51. Hi,
    I'm Josyp and I'm following u via google!

    Although February is a short month with lots of pouring rain and days filled with cold, it holds a special place in my heart, first of all, my mother's birthday happens to be in this month...moreover, in it we celebrate the lover's feast! I'm a hopeless romantic, I totally organize a whole lovely day on the 14th!! A day to remember I must add, even though I feel Valentine's day is EVERY single day and not just one day a year!!

    Thanks so much :))

  52. Hi I'm Paula.I follow via google too :)

    I love february because it its the month that i start to feel normal again haha. January is about getting over xmas and the new year oh and also my daughters birthday. Oh and how could i forget VALENTINES DAY lots of chocolate from the hubby.

  53. Hello, Milly! Thanks for letting me know about your giveaway :)
    I've followed you. Happy birthday!

    February is a lovely month to me because it marks my boyfriend's and my half anniversary (yeah I celebrate those! ^^)
    Also, it's still a cool month (not too hot or cold) so great for doing outdoorsy things where I'm from.

  54. Thanks for joining my blog, really appreciate it!
    Great blog by the way, soooooooooooooooooooooooooo cool!

  56. Hi! I follow you with Google as Linnéa Madsen (and my blog is MissLinneaBaby). February is special to me because it is my mom's birth month and my maternal grandma's birth month, so we have lots of excuses to arrange family things.

  57. Hey Milly,

    Thanks for following. Followed back ;) Great blog
    So what is so special about February....Valentines... hum no! Way too much (even if I would like a flower :p)
    Close to the spring, not really, have you seen the porring rain outside. What is special in February for me is that in general my bank account is back to normal after the festive period, and so is my weight :)

  58. Hello Milly, thanks for reading my blog :)

    Why I love february you ask? Because it's one step closer to spring! I know, my fellow Canadians are probably scolding me for not embracing the cold and snow. Although as a bonus uni students here have a week long break every february that always proves to be a good time.

    Hope your bday celebrations go well.
