Every year we try and go on a big summer holiday that involves an epic road trip of some sort. One year we drove up and down theÂ East CoastÂ of America exploringÂ New England and Cape Cod with its seaside charm and rich history. Another, we travelled around the West Coast of America, toÂ Las Vegas- across the Nevada Desert into Los Angeles and up theÂ Pacific Coast Highway to San Francisco.Â We always came back adventure worn and changed as people.
At the end of 2012 year we spent travelling Mumbai, Calcutta and Goa for our wedding celebrations.
So this year it feels decidedly strange that we have decided to forego a summer holiday for the kitchen of our dreams [sigh].
However, I received an email from think there may just be a glimmer of hope for that getaway after all.
They asked me to share theirÂ âSummer Pin to Winâ competition with the potential to win Â£500 worth ofÂ Thomson vouchers toÂ spend on a holiday of your choice. They’ve also got Â£50 M&S vouchers for two runners up.
If youâre keen to get your hands on one of these prizes, then simply follow Hillary’s on Pinterest. Next choose your favourite image from their âsummer holiday inspiredâ board featuring dreamy shutters and blinds that evoke elegant summer interiors,Â and re-pin it to your Pinterest page. Simple!
The competition starts on the 15thÂ of July,and ends on the 26thÂ and the winner is announced on the 29thÂ (July). Good luck!
