You have until April 1st to send your entries in for the MY BEST FRIEND ROCKS comp… this year the prizes are bigger and better than ever, so don’t miss out! I’ve teamed up with the cool ‘n’ fabby MIZZ magazine and CHILDLINE, the amazing children’s charity, to make this year’s comp truly spectacular…

Do you have a friend in a million? A friend who has helped you through some tough times, or been through some ups and downs herself? Maybe she’s been your friend since forever, or perhaps she’s a new mate and you want to show her how much you care… well, this is your chance! Click MY BEST FRIEND ROCKS and find out exactly how to enter.

You can be as creative as like – get to work designing an entry that will really catch my eye, then send it in to the address on the MBFR link. We’ve had some fab entries so far… check out a few of my faves on the MBFR link see the kind of thing other people are doing! The Easter hols are a perfect time to do this… all that chocolate can only be an inspiration!

If you are one of the 100 finalists, you’ll be invited to my ULTIMATE FRIENDSHIP FESTIVAL on the banks of the River Thames in London, with your best friend and a parent/guardian, for a day of fun, friendship, workshops, makeovers and lots, lots more… you’ll get to meet me, too! The overall winner and five runners-up will be announced at a special ceremony that afternoon. The winners will win everything they need to create the sleepover of their dreams… sigh!

Don’t miss out – show your best friend how much SHE (or he!) rocks and get those entries rolling in before APRIL 1st. Good luck!

Sadly, for this year anyway, the comp is only open to readers in the UK & Ireland… sorry to all you overseas readers with brilliant best mates. Oh… and HAPPY EASTER!!!!

STOP PRESS!!!! The Winners of the EASTER BUNNY FREEBY COMP, online on Easter Monday, selected at random, are as follows: Lucy S, Hannah W, Rebeca K, Rachel H, Catherine M, Lauren H, Briony A, Natalie C, Sheena T & Zara S. Winners are from UK, Eire, USA, Singapore & New Zealand. Well done all!
