Rand Papele Necklace Giveaway!

Remember last week I mentioned how obsessed I am with my new necklace from Rand Papele?  I’m still obsessed. I’ve never had more comments on an accessory in my life!

I’ve been chatting with the lovely Jude from Rand Papele and we decided that you guys also deserve the chance to add one of their covetable pieces to your own jewellery collection.

The item up for grabs is a souvenir for your soul’s journey (the wandering Sagittarius in me is clapping her hands in glee) – a hand fabricated, formed, folded and stamped necklace made from sterling silver, and then oxidized to bring out the textures, tool marks and character.

You can see how beautiful the pieces are above, and the best bit is you get to choose which town/ city/ province/ country or place name you would like marked on your custom piece. Cool, huh?

To Win



1. Leave a comment in the comment section to tell me your favourite place in the world and why you love it (in 50 words or less)

Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat ‘Inspirations’ Giveaway

How do I begin to describe Gwinganna?

Heaven on Earth? Absolutely. A game-changer? No doubt. A place that will unhinge your resistance, unlock the buried (and beautiful) parts of your soul and inspire you to make changes – whether radical or subtle – to your life so you’re living the best possible version of you? A million gazillion percent yes.

Can you tell I’m fanatical about the place?

As proof that vision boards and manifesting your desires go hand in hand, a few years ago I had a nice, big image of the retreat on my board, with the words “I am enjoying a weekend at Gwinganna” written in red underneath.

Not long after, I started my current job and got talking to Gwinganna’s Marketing Manager, the glorious Tracy, who epitomises everything the place stands for – calm and centred, caring and mega positive – and she invited me to come and spend the weekend to try out their brand new luxury villas. Insert ZOMG x infinity! This was huge!

Of course, I leapt at the chance and had one of the most relaxing, rewarding and eye-opening experiences of my life. I was in awe of the staff who were on a mission to spread the word on health and wellness in a very big way, and mingling with others who were relishing in the journey as much as I was left me totally inspired.

If you’re on the fence about health retreats and thinking you kinda maybe sorta might like to visit one, I should let you know that Gwinganna wins pretty much every spa award under the sun and Hugh Jackman loved his visit so much he returned to become part-owner. Nice.

Giveaway Time


Tracy has been kind enough to give me 5 copies of Gwinganna’s ‘Inspirations’ coffee table book (RRP $19.95) to give away to In Spaces Between readers. Hooray!

Check out a few snapshots of the pages below:

To Enter

Simply leave a comment under this post before 9am Friday 27 January, 2012.

Any comment will do – you can tell us why you’d love a copy of the book, what appeals to you about the retreat, or about your Gwinganna experience if you’ve been before – and a winner will be selected using and contacted by email.

Best of luck x

Wait, wait, there’s more!


Gwinganna have also very generously shared one of their incredible recipes with us all, so if you’re need some inspiration for dinner tonight, why not give this baby a go? Delicious.
