Happy Birthday Zambia {+Giveaway}

Day 2Hi there and welcome, today marks the 50th independence anniversary for my motherland Zambia. I have been waiting for today all week, it’s been a hell of a week but one that I am enjoying very much. I am very privileged to come from a country that only knows peace. God has blessed us profoundly and I am grateful for that, I remember this one time when “captain solo” as he called himself threatened to over throw the then president and rule the country. It was the most frightening thing I have ever experienced, I remember schools getting shut that day and people refusing to work so they can find out if the country’s leadership was gonna be taken over or not, though it lasted only a couple of hours before this man and his men were apprehended it felt like forever.

Anyway back to the good stuff, tomorrow I will join my fellow country men in celebrating this important date and reminisce about the good old days back in the motherland. But before that can happen I wanted to share with my readers this wonderful giveaway I am co-hosting with other wonderful ladies.
Host: Lix / A Classic Notion [Lix Hewett Design] Co-hosts: Marielle / This Flooded Sky · Miranda / A July Dreamer · Abbie / The Pink Paper Doll · Samantha / Coco Butter Blog · Dawn / Leroy Lime

The host Lix (blog)  is hosting a wonderful media kit giveaway, you can check out some of her design work here. I was blown away when I saw the types of work she does. For me the best part is she is here in the UK and just a stone throw away. I have fallen in love with her designs and I have started to save up for my blog ::The Myrabev Life:: makeover.

If you want to be in with a chance to win a free media kit then enter the raffle below, fingers crossed and good luck. The giveaway runs from today till Friday 31st October 2014, Lix also has a 10% off on all her designs if you enter the code YAYFALL until the 31st October 2014.
