    2013 Yearender giveaway results!

    Hello! If you’re following me over on my social media channels, you’re probably aware that I extended the deadline for the giveaway another two days. I failed to anticipate that I’d be away traveling on the original date of the contest draw. My Hong Kong travel journal which I will finish 2457527 years from now.   The extended contest deadline gave people more chances of putting in more contest entries via tweeting/sharing/reposting the giveaway images though.
