Yes that is a Harry Potter birthday cake - I wants it :P (Photo from The Cake Kitchen)

Cake, everybody loves CAKE!
Oh Hai folks. For those who didn't already know it'll by my 20th Birthday *le gasp* on the 7th of October and that means that it's now only 4 weeks away!! I'm slightly freaked out that I'm nearly that old since I still feel only 17 mentally (scrub that I have the mental age and attention span of a five yr old :P).
But I have a *marvellous* plan to make things a lot more fun - by having a contest!!

Here's the Deal
1. The Contest will run from the 9th of September until the 7th of October which is precisely four weeks.
2. It will be a single-entry contest (i.e. no extra entries for twitter, blog, youtube etc. promotions) - all you need to enter is your email address. (But if you want to promote the contest please do, I'll give you cookies :D )
3. You do NOT have to be a Follower to enter (although it would be really nice if you did)
4. The Contest is INTERNATIONAL so come one, come all!
5. ONE winner will be able to ask for any book(s) they want up to the value of £20 to be shipped to them from The Book Depository (since they ship almost anywhere for free)
6. The Winner will be picked via a random number generator on the 8th of October and announced on the blog and also they will be emailed.
7. Then they will have 48 hours to reply with their mailing address and confirm which book(s) they would like me to purchase so I can get the order made.
8. If the winner fails to reply within the alloted time then another shall be selected at random.

I think that's everything.
So fill in the Google Form below and you're away!


Happy (almost) Birthday to Me!!

Great contest!! 20 is not old! Though I do sympathize with you because I always feel old. I would like to be 23 and stay that age. It didn't feel too bad. I'm 25 now. I feel ancient. Not really, but in the same way you mean. It sucks lol.

A Harry Potter Cake. I've been asking for one since I was nine years old. Never ever have I seen one as awesome as that. You must get it and take lots of pictures of its awesomeness. And happy almost birthday! Thanks for the giveaway :).

Oh crud. I entered again. So sorry! >_< Well, um...count my recent entry I suppose. (I'll kick myself if my first entry would have secured me that box set!)

Happy Early Birthday!!

P.S. I think there will be 2 entries for me, but you can delete/disregard the first one, because I hit 'enter' and it submitted it before I was done :/

Yay birthdays *throws confetti* Always heaps of fun! Hope it's a good one!
I understand the old feeling. No matter how young I am I always feel old. Does that make sense? :P
