The blog post could be from makeup, manicure, baking, outfit, a book review, series review, travel or even the movie itself! With the oscars coming up this makes a super cool and fun tag to do!

This is part of our GiG spotlight series, but just in case you don’t know… The spotlight series is a fun tag that we do every two weeks; one of the GIG Crew will be launching a topic that you can join in and write about on your blog. The GiG crew then will be choosing a ‘spotlight winner’ which will be feature all across the GiG network for a week, is a way to say thank you for joining and give a blogger some love! 😀

**By showcasing different items you love, tell us what your style is all about, you can make a list, you can use your own pics, you can use stock images, the important thing is you tell us your ‘fashion statement’ and make it creative, both in writing and design!**

  • You can think about the garments you’ll never leave home when getting your suitcase ready. The ones you absolutely consider must haves. Things you feel comfy and sexy wearing. It could be from an accessory to a knit…that’s your style!

♥ The GIG Blogger to be featured will be announced on Monday and will take the glory until Sunday that week.

Remember, you have until Sunday to submit your entry!

To support our GIG members, get their blogs out there, and showcase their creativity both in writing and design, we’re launching a new concept to do this, called GIG Spotlight, where you have all the glory of being featured across all GIG’s network (Facebook + Twitter) including on this blog (GIG’s Official platform) for a good one week!

Moderators of the Week: Meet Cinnamon Spring & Pixi Wishes

This week’s moderator is Saran (member of the GIG Crew) from Cinnamon Spring, a DIY, Fashion and Positivity blog.

The blog name encompasses two things: Cinnamon and Spring.

Cinnamon, because the smell of it on freshly baked bread or pastries is just so delicious and reminds me of home. Spring, because of the new adventure it brings with it after the dark and stormy seasons.

This blog is not a personal blog, and I try not to write about any negativity. This world has too many ills and I feel that it is best to be positive, positive, positive! ;) Before you go, I’d like to thank you soso much for dropping by and even popping a comment! I really appreciate it :D

To get to know Saran more — click here.

This week, we will also have one GIG member, who will be moderating alongside Saran, Becky from Pixi Wishes & Forehead Kisses – a bright, creative, lifestyle blogger from Australia, who have a knack for baking, cooking, DIY, and wonderful designs. Check out her blog here. 

Pixi Wishes & Forehead Kisses is my first blog and I am having so much fun writing, designing and managing it. I post about the things I love. Which include; cooking, craft, reading and all things design. Studying and working in a creative industry means I am always on the look out for inspiration and am constantly jotting down ideas and learning new skills…
