Today Retro Chick the blog is TWO YEARS OLD!

Yes, that’s right. A whole 2 years of my meandering ramblings. To celebrate I insist every single one of you eats some cake today.

I’ve met some amazing people through the blog, both in real life and through chatting online, and I’d love to buy you all a cake.

Sadly I can’t.

In fact there’s a distinct possibility I might not even be able to buy MYSELF cake. I might, however, be able to help a couple of you buy something pretty to help celebrate. has kindly offered to sponsor a little giveaway for my birthday. I have 2 x £25 gift vouchers for ASOS to giveaway to 2 lucky winners. They offered me the choice of picking another prize for you, but I thought it would be nice to give you the chance to pick your own for once!

If you haven’t already then is worth a peek if you’re shopping online. I do occasionally find that the discount codes they list aren’t “codes” as such, but rather promotions the site is running, such as free delivery, that you get automatically. It’s great when you find you can get 20% off though! As well as ASOS they also have La Redoute discount codes and New Look discount codes on the site, amongst many, many others.

I remember ASOS in the early 00s when it was As Seen On Screen and you could shop by “celebrity” and buy the items, or similar, that you’d seen them wearing. It was one of my absolute favourite sites and it’s good to see it grow up and out into an amazing online shopping mall. In case you need inspiration for what you could spend your prize on I’ve helpfully spent my afternoon repeatedly spending a virtual £25 on ASOS.

Completely altrusitic you understand, not just an excuse for some virtual shopping….
