GIVEAWAY – win £50 of kitchen equipment

I was delighted when I was given the chance to host a giveaway from Cookware Essentials (now called Wayfair) to one of my UK readers as well as getting to chose an item for myself. I had such fun browsing their on-line store looking for an item for our new kitchen.

Should I chose something I maybe need, 0r how about something I really want!

Those who are familiar with my kitchen makeover, know that I have a passion for soft, duck egg blue, teal and soft cream.

Here are the goodies that are tempting me

First lets put the kettle on

And have a cup of tea

In a lovely mug

Would you like a biscuit or cookie with that?

Or how about a slice of cake?Then maybe I could do some measuring

or mixingor cooking with these great enamel utensils – very shabby chic!

Pop dinner in the oven

Or griddle it on the range cooker

Aren’t these so cute for individual servings? (even if they are the wrong shade of blue!)
And also loved these two items

Do you think I am a little too obsessed with cream and soft duck-eggy blue? Maybe you shouldn’t answer that.

So now, over to you…. which item (up to the value of £50, with FREE SHIPPING) would you chose if you won? Visit Cooking Essentials and have a look around.

  1. Its so hard to choose, I’ve never seen Cookware Essentials before but I’ll remember them now, I could get loads for £50 the prices are so reasonable:)

    I do like that cake stand, but then I might come over all fancy and want to two tiered stand, or the le creuset mixing jugs, I even like the nigella lawson mixing bowls but in the xmas colours, is that odd?

    Here, maybe its best if I don’t win:)

  2. There is too much to choose from!

    Do I go for something useful – like a frying pan to replace mine that has seen better days, or a salad spinner – or something fun like silicon muffin pans to use baking with the kids!

  3. And I’ve blogged about the competition in my Monday Weigh-In: Week Eight post.

  4. Oooh, so hard to choose. I could go for the Le Creuset 961013200 – Stainless Steel 20cm Non-Stick Omelette Pan for OH, or the Nigella Lawson Cake Plate or stand for me

  5. Oh wow the choice, I was in heaven as I adore browsing cookware online is great for it. I would possibly go for an Anolon pan, my pans are very poor and I could do with a good set, these seem great.

    Love your selection too.

  6. Just stopping by from SITS, and I’m loving your blog!! Not to mention, AWESOME giveaway!!!

  7. I think those measuring cups are beautiful!

    Sigh. Yet another reason I need to cross the pond.

  8. I know this is only open to your UK readers, but I saw you over at SITS and wanted to pop by and say hi! Happy Monday!

  9. Duck egg blue and creammmmy cream,
    Your favorite colours, your kitchen dream,
    Such a soft and restful scheme,
    Are you starting a worldwide blue/white meme?
    I don’t think you need worry just yet,
    I do not think it is such a threat,
    For I do not see it on your eyes,
    As part of your makeup, your disguise,
    So I think I can safely surmise,
    That you will stop when it is wise,
    But you DO know you match…


    Nah, you’ve still got like your house to paint (outside) and dressing your entire family in blue/cream and giving George a matching collar, and your car and your camera strap … oh, and WHEN you get your ipod you would skin it with a blue/cream cover.

    Ok, I think those bowls are too cool – only they must make a racket trying to go ROUND on the mixmaster. *snort* Yes, feeling very silly here today indeed. Must be the heat.

  10. Hi I’m from the dst blog train. Great post and I just LOVE the cutting board with the drawer ooooh but the individual serving cookware is nice…MMMmmmm

  11. I adore those blue individual serving pots! I’ve seen them used on a few cooking shows, and I’ve always wanted a set. Great giveaway, makes me wish I lived in the UK!

  12. Wish I were eligible for your draw! I am formerly from Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland, so when I saw your comment on Beach Cottage, I hopped on over to visit. You have a lovely blog!


  13. I would love to win the chopping board with the drawer – what a cool idea !!


  14. Hi
    Stopping by from SITS today. Looks like you have a busy day ahead… I still hope it will be a great one!

    Now, the cookware… I like so many of these things, but the teal square frying pan was COOL…

    See you around;)

  15. Came over to say hi from SITS. I can’t win (live in USA), but I love the color of that tea pot, and the jar, and plates. Pretty shades of blue. And, love your site. So cute and fun!

  16. I love the duck egg blue. I love the cookie jar as when I have a cuppa I have to have a cookie. Also love the crepe pan as it reminds me of summer holidays in France as a child where we encountered the Crepe.

  17. Hi what a lovely giveaway! I would love the Teapot I think. The colour is just stunning. Although the mixing bowls are lovely too! Can’t decide! I think the Teapot!

    Love Collette xxx
