Two Year Giveaway

It’s been 2 years since I started this blog and in that time I’ve made a number of wonderful friends through this blog both in New Zealand and overseas. There’s nothing like shared interests to cement a friendship and I thank everyone who has commented on this blog in the past 2 years. This blog has given me the excuse to be more adventurous and try new things. I love sharing a little slice of my New Zealand kitchen with the world.

Sometime in the coming month, this blog will hit 100,000 visits and I’m celebrating with a new logo and giveaway. Some of you may remember my last giveaways when this blog reached 1,000 hits in October 2010 and then 10,000 hits in April 2011.

One lucky winner will receive three of my favourite New Zealand products and three sets of my designs.

In true NZ style, the producers all came to the party and have generously donated the following:

  • Al Brown has donated a 1 litre cask of his Extra Virgin Olive Oil from The Village Press. Signed by the man himself. The packaging features a stunning illustration by Kieran Rynhart.
  • Hakanoa Hand-Made have donated a big 750ml bottle of their Hakanoa Hand-made Ginger Syrup
  • J. Friend and Co. New Zealand Artisan Honey have donated a set of their NZ Native Honey Collection

The winner will also receive:

  • 10 x Illustrated bunny greeting cards with gold and silver envelopes
  • 1 x A3 food type print on linen stock (as featured on my Brown Sugar Stewed Apples post)
  • 10 x Aminal stickers

This competition is closed.

To enter, all you need to do is:

A. Visit the Bunny Eats Design Facebook page and hit “Like” and then…

B. Leave a comment under this post sharing one thing you like from New Zealand. It doesn’t have to be food related.

If you are already familiar with my Facebook page, just go straight to B.

Good luck!

  • Prize is non-transferable and there is no cash alternative.
  • Entries close midday on 10th October 2012, New Zealand Standard Time.

    Congrats on a great 2 years of blogging 🙂 can’t wait to see the new logo! I love NZ bush, there is a small stand of bush behind my work and I find it very calming to look at.

  3. I saw this pop up on facebook this morning and immediately thought ‘Tofu’. He is my favourite thing about NZ. Apart from the fact that it’s where I got my beautiful sister in law from. I don’t know about you, but Tofu has a way of brightening up the shittiest of days. My little Flatpac had to stay at Mums last night because we have an inspection and I felt so so sad waking up this morning, talking to her as a reflex, only to find that she wasn’t destroying a couch or cardboard box. I LOVE your new banner. Your food styling is so good!.. I’m a little jealous……………….

    • Awww. Thanks for the kind words Cass. Bunnies make our lives brighter, even when they need special care and attention. I gave Tofu a bath last night. He was so good about it. I think he’s starting to look forward to baths. Dirty bunny!

    There are so many things I like about New Zealand! I think a lot of them relate to summer; sunshine, beaches, bush walks, jandals, the sound of cicadas, bbq’s, beer, bikinis, tui song. Some of these you can find in other places during summer but they aren’t as New Zealandy as here. The thing I like most about New Zealand is that it is home.

  5. Congratulations on the milestone!

    I’m trying to think of things I like about NZ, but my mind keeps swirling around Hobbits and Xena. I’m sure they don’t count though…

  6. I love living in NZ. It’s comfortable, there’s so much space and not much people. Haha. No but really it’s quite laid back and you’re almost always close to nature. 😀 Congrats on 2 years!

  7. Many happy returns B-E-D! And wishing you lots more. The thing I like about NZ is also the thing that makes me groan sometimes, its smallness means that you can do things and talk to people who are likely to be inaccessible in larger countries. I like all the artisan producers who front up at markets, food shows, blogger meets and talk passionately about their products. Warm fuzzies.

    • You’re right, it’s great being able to meet the producers and those that are passionate about their business. It’s not the same as when you’re talking to someone at a checkout.

  8. My favourite thing about NZ is the amazing scenery and places you can visit in the shortest amount of travelling time, no matter where you are in the country ^_^ I also love our unique lingo and kiwiana items which make us unique to the world.

    • Great to see that our honey is making it’s way across the globe. The prize includes a little pot each of J.Friend’s Manuka, Pohutukawa and Kamahi Honey.

      • OOOOHHHHH!!! Hope I win! 🙂 I’d love to taste those other two. My husband has NZ on his bucket list of places to visit – it’s not in the near future however. 😦

    i enjoy so much about new zealand it is hard to pick oe thing, really the best thing is going a lovely beach with the family and being carefree

  10. jessica alvee says

    already a liker of your page 🙂
    My fav NZ thing other then my family has to be the areas of our country that are still natural and not over run or ruined by man, such as the lakes, forests, coves and caves 🙂 they are so beautiful when we (humans) don’t destroy them and instead enjoy them.

  11. Glenys Key says

    Congrats on your 2nd anniversary of blogging – I love the beautiful National Parks that protect our beautiful native trees and plants.

  12. Erin K says

    My favourite thing about NZ is where I live I can drive 10 mins out of the city and be in the country side, at the moment Im loving seeing all the lambs! Congratulations on 2 years 🙂

  13. My fave thing about NZ is that I feel that it is the best place in the world to bring up children, I wouldnt want to anywhere else !(not that I really know any different hehe but still you know what I mean…)

  14. Belinda says

    My favourite thing about NZ is we have so many wonderful athletes which makes me proud to be a NZer

  15. My fav thing bout NZ is summer time and beaches. Can’t beat lounging under pohutakawas with hot sand between your toes and an ice cream dripping on your togs. Bring on summer baby yeah! And kiwi food bloggers are pretty awesome too xox

  16. Super-sparkly congrats!
    Unfortunately I’ve never been there but on my list because of its breath-taking landscapes!!!
    I love about NZ is the Lord of the rings movie 😀 -so that’s why I want to be there once and the adorable and weirdo kiwis!!

  17. carolyn abraham says

    hi for me if would be the culture of new zealand and congrats on 2 years well done

  18. I’m brand new to your blog but have always been intrigued by New Zealand – my husband’s grandfather has proclaimed that New Zealand is his ultimate favorite place in the world (and he is quite a traveler!) and we are planning a special trip to go there with him next spring 🙂 Life is short so stop just “thinking” about things to do. do them 🙂
