I reached 200 followers a while ago and fast approaching the 300 mark so I thought I would say a huge thank you to everybody who has followed my blog, commented and emailed me lovely things. The positive feedback I get is really rewarding and makes me want to blog regularly!

I have been thinking over and over again what to include as a prize for my giveaway. I have a few unwanted Christmas presents but nothing amazing to give away. Yesterday I was thinking about it some more and I am going to be giving away a blog design! It will be my £25 deal (which has currently been set to 'sold out' and will be up for sale again when I have got through the queue of blogs to design) but obviously free of charge! Not everybody is going to be interested in this, especially people who only have blogs to enter beauty giveaways and don't necessarily blog themselves. It can be hard to start blogging and grab attention from readers if your blog isn't very eyecatching to look at. It would be lovely to help out a blogger who reads my own blog to get on the road to blogging with a lovely looking blog. Or maybe one of you just fancy a re-vamp!

So, if you fancy winning yourself a complete blog design with a free installation included here's what you have to do:

  • Be a follower of ASHLLYD via GFC (Google Friend Connect) - Click Follow at the top or Click Join This Site on my followers widget.
  • Finish this sentence: "I really want a blog design by ASHLLYD because.........."
  • Leave a contact email.
Extra entries (+1 entry for each):
  • Follow me on Twitter (link here)
  • Like ASHLLYD on Facebook (link here)
  • Like Daisystreet on Facebook (link here)
  • Tweet about the giveaway and mention @ashllyd so I can see it!
Winners will be chosen via random.org and the giveaway will end 11:59pm 31st January. I will contact you on the given email address. The winner will have 48 hours to reply otherwise I will pick a different winner, so check your inboxes!



  1. I really want a blog design by ASHLLYD because they look awesome and my blog needs a makeover and I'm a poor student who can't afford to buy one :(

    If I were to win please email me at coolstoryclo@gmail.com

    (also I already follow you on Twitter and I tweeted about it here: https://twitter.com/#!/ChloeLeePhoto/status/156349957299908608)

    Thank you!

  2. I really want a blog design by ASHLLYD because I am a total technophobe. I have seen all of your other designs and they always look really cute and quirky, as does your blog (which constantly changes! :] ).


    Thanks hun,

  3. Ahhhh YAY! This has made my day! :')

    I really want a blog design by ASHLLYD because.......... I've wanted a new blog design for months, I genuinely hate mine haha! I adore your blog, and your designs and have wanted something similar for a while. I find it so neat, easy to navigate etc. Unfortunately, I haven't had the €€€ to pay for a design, so hopefully this might be my lucky chance. I'd also link your blog etc on my blog, and on twitter etc saying you designed it and all that jazzzz!

    I follow you on twitter and liked both FB pages. :D



  4. I really want a blog design by ASHLLYD because she's super nifty with HTML and I am really apalling. Needs lots of things changing but haven't got a clue!


  5. I really want a blog design by ASHLLYD because i'm technology illiterate. I've tried to learn it, messed about a little bit but it always ends in disaster. If there was a competition for the most boring layout, then mine would win hands down. While I don't like overcomplicated, I don't like plain & boring either and looking at your designs here & on other blogs you know your shizznitt!!
    I already follow you on GFC & Twitter :o)


  6. I really want a blog design by ASHLLYD because I looove what you do! I like how you do them and think you're very talented, and it's a fab opportunity to have my blog done all purty!

    I'm a follower on GFC as Lorin Pateron & liked your page on Facebook (Lorin Paterson), followed you on twitter (@reveriesdelorin) and tweeted about your comp, I mentioned you so you should have gotten it! Xx

  7. Oooh, my email address is lorinpaterson@mail.com by the way! x

  8. I really want a blog design by ASHLLYD because i feel that mine needs an update and looks messy right now. I'd really like for it to look more tidy and professional like yours does. I also think mine has too much going on at the moment making it feel too busy, especially in the sidebar.
    I follow you through GFC and twitter and have liked both facebook pages :)

  14. I really want a blog design by ASHLLYD because......... no matter how hard I try I can never get my layout "quite right"

  15. I really want a blog design by ASHLLYD because your blog is one of the blogs I always look forward to reading, the fact that your illustrations are beautiful and that you seem to have no ends to your html (and whatever else it is - im such a technophobe, its embarrasing!) and I would be so in awe to have something designed by you on my blog!

    This is such a lovely giveaway lovely!

  23. A fantastic opportunity giveaway! One to be honest I'd be daft not to enter!

    Following via GFC as The Agoraphobic Fashionista (name of blog also)

    "I really want a blog design by ASHLLYD because.......... I started my blog on Nov 16th after losing over 5 st and changing my life, I was starting to try and piece myself and my style etc together. Incredibly Agoraphobic and Bi-polar I struggle to get out of the house so started the blog as therapy. With that in mind I've tried my best in regards to the content, layout and design but it would be a real dream come true to have you design something outstanding!''

  24. Amazing competition! I am following on GFC and Twitter as A Certain Vintage

    I really want a blog design by ASHLLYD because....I am feeling uninspired by my blog! After struggling to personalise the layout over the 2 years since I've started it, I am stuck in a rut..my technical ability leaves a lot to be desired and I have never been happy with my blog layout. I have an idea in my head of how I'd like it to look but just can't implement it. This would motivate me to bring my blog into 2012, raise it's quality and lift my spirits after a difficult 2011 where my blog was one of the only places where I could have a safe haven for myself :)

    Amazing and generous giveaway!
