My first EVER competition!!

So it's the 1st of February and today is jam packed with things to celebrate. January is over, spring is coming, it's St. Brigid's Day, National Grandparent's Day and my blog is two months on the go!! So I thought it was high time to mark all this celebration with my first EVER competition. I am a huge fan of Lorraine Pascale's BBC Programme 'Baking Made Easy'. I love her show, her style of cooking and am always left wanting to bake after watching her. So I was very lucky when a very lovely friend, who knows me all too well, got me her cookbook at Christmas (it's not like i hinted that much!!). It's a gorgeous cookbook packed full of recipes for bread, cakes, desserts and savoury baking. I can't wait to try her 'I cant believe you made that cake' recipe it's impressive looking. I love this cookbook so much that I want to give a copy away to one of my lovely readers.

So how do I get myself into the draw for this I hear you say?? Well this is one of those super easy competitions. All you have to do is be a follower of my blog. You can do this in a number of ways:

1.  Follow The Purple Page through Google Friend Connect (you can do this through a google, twitter or yahoo account – hit the Join this Site button. It's just over there in the sidebar to the right).

2. Like The
Purple Page on Facebook and  share the post about this giveaway.

3. If you’re on Twitter join me here and tweet away.

You can just do one of these, you can do all three, it's up to you but I will give you one entry for each of the steps.

Good luck everyone!

This giveaway is open to Irish and UK followers only but if you are from abroad still join me as one day maybe I can have an international competition :) A winner will be selected at random and announced at the end of February.


The competition is now closed and the winner, as picked by Random.org, is Leanne Daly. Well done Leanne please email thepurplepageireland@gmail.com with the details of where you want me to send your very lovely prize too :)
