Book Giveaway + 400 Readers

Hey beautiful people,

My blog just hit the 400 followers mark on WordPress! I’m very happy to have achieved this mile before going back home and I want to celebrate it with you here, so… I’m hosting a book giveaway! 

Now, before I go into the book giveaway, I would like to thank you all for your support and time. I started blogging when I was 12, but this blog is the first one to last so many days and months: it will be 2 years old in early 2019!Β 

In the past few months, I decided to come out of the closet as a blogger and since then I have dedicated more time to read other people’s blogs. The result has been incredible: I have had the chance to meet incredible and inspiring people on WordPress, who share the same passion for blogging with all their heart on life and well-being.

I’d like to specifically express my gratitude to the following bloggers:

These girls and boys are amazing! They inspire and support me beyond borders. When you have a minute, please have a look at their posts and I’m sure you will want to follow them as well. Now next: the book giveaway.

I recently wrote a review of a book dedicated to Happiness, by Jacqueline Pirtle, and I think it’s the appropriate time to gift one of my readers with a copy of that very same book. To enter in this book giveaway, all you have to do is to comment this post and letting us know your own answer to the following question:

What is Happiness To You?

I will announce the winner next Sunday’s evening (UK time) and I will ship the book no later than next Tuesday (27th November) as I have my flight back to Lisbon in the following day. Fingers crossed!

You can also read my post on the previous milestone (300 readers), here.


  1. Congratulations vanessa ! Keep it up πŸ˜‡β€οΈ

    And thank you so much for the mention ❀️

    What is happiness for me?

    Happiness for me is feeling satisfied with myself. Happiness is accepting myself for who I’m & working on my weakness without giving up.

  5. Congratulations to you my friend!!! You are doing a great job and I am very much inspired by your positive attitude.
    Thank you so much for mentioning me and I am glad that you are inspired, made me happy that I can impact.
    Happiness to me is helping others and watching them grow. growing up my mother taught us “Always do good to others and it will bring you tons of joy”. I couldn’t agree any more as growing old that’s the most peaceful thing for me now.
    Although the bigger joy to me is when I see my kids, especially being a mother of a girl with Down Syndrome makes me so happy.
    You need to bring tons of pictures from back home and share with us.
    I will spare some times to go check the bloggers you have mentioned. I am so blessed to connect with you as well, you are a wonderful person.

      2. You deserve a nice rest, my dear, the post can surely wait and it will even flow better 😊 I hope everything is ok with your little ones. Take your time replying back with your address, the book will be here waiting for you and absorbing some sun energy πŸ˜„πŸ’ž


  6. Congrats!!! πŸ˜€ Happiness to me means doing the things I love. I think my happiness also comes through seeing the world through a positive mindset, finding the light in all situations. I once told one my managers that when I become an old person, I want to be happy and not grumpy. No matter what I live through, happiness means I’m still able to find reasons to smile, laugh, and dance.

  7. Congratulations for reaching 400 followers lovely πŸ₯‚ i’m so pleased to have met you on WordPress and to be following your adventures.

    Happiness for me is simply being present. Such a simple concept, but one that doesn’t always come naturally.

    Happiness for me is also spending time with my dearest friend, who I truly believe to be my soul mate, who never fails to be there for me. Simply hearing his voice make me smile the biggest, silliest smile πŸ’•
