It's my birthday this week, so to celebrate I thought I'd give YOU a chance to win some presents – after all, it is quite often more fun to give than to receive!
I blogged this time last year about how I no longer mind getting older since the death of my little sister (you can read that blog here)  I think we should appreciate every day and celebrate the fact that we've survived another year.
So I've put together a little selection of QVC goodies worth over £130, so that one of you can have a little celebration of your own (click on the picture above for a closer look)! There's a Charlie Bears puppy dog from the Baby Boutique Collection, some fab Mally makeup (the iconic Face Defender and the new threepiece Lip Glitz), a Kipling purse (with a monkey called Jack – quite appropriate as that's often what I'm called by my friends!), plus a fabulous eyeshadow palette from the amazing US makeup range tarte which launched on QVC earlier this year.
You've got until 12pm on Tuesday 6th May to enter, and it couldn't be easier. All you have to do is answer this question:
Q. What famous train did I travel to Venice on before Easter? (Hint: the answer may possibly be found in last week's blog…).
Leave your answer in the comment box below this blog – you'll have to give your email address in the field provided (not in the actual comment) but don't worry, it won't be published. The winner's name will be published on this blog shortly after the competition ends. Good luck and have a wonderful week – and if it's your birthday this week too, have a great one!
Love Jackie x

Happy Birthday Jackie hope u r spoiled rotten xx Answer = Orient Express. What a fab way for your friend to celebrate her 40th Birthday xx
I know a lot of people must say this but have never posted anything ever before. I read the sad story of your sister and for different reasons my life totally changed on the 30th may 2010 too. When something happens as a shock you forget that others maybe going through something too that is life changing. I went into labour on the Saturday night and had a little boy in the early hours of Sunday morning at 25 weeks. He severe brain damage and was in hospital for nearly 5 months. He does have cerebral palsy and a gastrostomy but has done far better than predicted and can walk on his own and is very happy. He starts school with support in September and I will return as a teacher or assistant. I know this sounds very sad ha ha but qvc has become a bit of a regular in my house if I’m up the night with him I put it on if I can’t sleep or worried and it totally takes my mind of it.
The answer is the orient express.enjoy ur day.x
