Happy 8th Birthday to us, but boy do we have some presents for you!

It’s hard to believe SASSYBELLA.com is 8 years old. We went live on August 1, 2002 to be exact. Back then we were fresh out of school (I’ll let you figure out which level) and was a fashion blog-a-zine, a term we came to know and love through Gemma Cartwright formally of CatwalkQueen and currently of Big Girls Browse fame. Then we moved on to WordPress in 2005 and the rest they say is history.

But there is no need to waffle on about the amazing experiences we’ve had in the last year (because we’ll do that in upcoming posts) so let’s cut to the chase. We have some presents for YOU to say thanks for visiting and show how much we love our visitors and commenter’s.

SASSYBELLA.com’s 8th Birthday competition!

First prize:

A Nokia E72 smartphone in the chicest colour, Amethyst and a designer pouch designed expecially for the Nokia E72 by my favourite Australian designers Ginger & Smart.

The Nokia E72 is a handy phone to have in your possession with its web surfing capabilities (so you can see what’s new on SASSYBELLA.com of course) and its 5 megapixel camera to take snaps of your fashionable finds to share with your friends. And we don’t have to mention how chic any design by Ginger & Smartโ€™s designers Genevieve and Alexandra Smart is. The Italian leather pouch features a coin purse, slots for a lipstick, pen holder, credit card holders and a long strap which can be shortened..

And for three lucky runner’s up we have Benefit‘s new Fall 2010 Crescent Row fragrances to give away!

Benefit Crescent Row, The Second Story comprises of:

  • Garden of Good & Eva: A citrus floral that is a breeze down a lush lane. She’s the fresh rush of splendor you can’t quite explain.
  • Lookin’ to Rock Rita: A fruity green, Rita’s ready to rock and is dressed to thrill with a flavor for risks.
  • So hooked on Carmella: A floral vanilla, when it comes to Carmella don’t ask and don’t tell.

These adorable fragrances retail for $59 each and are available in store now (though in our opinion, why buy it when you can win it right here?)

What do you have to do?

Well you have a few options:

  1. Email this post to friends with this link, or
  2. Share the news of this competition on Twitter – make sure you include @sassybella and #SASSYBELLA8thBDay in your tweet, or
  3. Leave a comment letting us know what your favourite story on SASSYBELLA.com has been.

    Hi SassyBella! I wanna say Happy Birthday and stay awesome!

    One of my favorite (all time favorite) post story is ‘Jeans, Jeans and More Jeans’, yeah that helped me a lot, A LOT. I didnt know how to choose jeans at first, but after reading your post, i found out that Low-Rise jeans really fit me. So I had my first Giordano Low Rise jeans when I was in primary 4/year 4. I’m was a tall girl though I was only 10 year old ๐Ÿ˜€

    Anyway,tomorrow is my birthday! 6th August and I am turning 17. And I am from Asia and I love fashion. Feel free to browse my tumblr : ailurophobia6.tumblr.com Thank you!

    I loved the article Jeans, Jeans and more Jeans as I find that buying the best jeans for me such an expensive trial and error. Now I have saved money and got jeans that really suit me! xx
