GIVEAWAY: Sanlam Food Wine Design Fair

October 25, 2013


Ok so it’s Friday and  at the beginning of the week I said I was going to start a cool giveaway today, so here you go. Not only am I giving away 5 sets of double tickets to the Food Wine Design Fair but I also have a R3000 unit trust from Sanlam Investments to give to someone to help them save towards a lifetime dream.

We all have them, I’ve always wanted to dive face first like Scrooge Mc Duck into a massive vault full of kinder eggs, will it ever happen? Damn straight it will! As long as I still have the ability to dive and a mouth as big as mine, I will make this dream come true one day. And hopefully we can help one of your dreams come true too. I also have some great Marvelous Wine hampers to giveaway, this label came about when a chef, a winemaker and an entrepreneur happily collaborated to bring about 3 cool wines called Shazam!, Kaboom! and Ka-Pow!

So maybe you’re wondering how you stand a chance to win one of these 5 cool prizes? This is how:

1. Leave me a short comment telling me what you would one day use your unit trust for, what is the one thing you have been dying to do or go or eat or see.

2. Tweet or blog about this giveaway and I’ll give you another entry into the competition, just make sure you use these 2 tags @miss_luckypony and #FoodWineDesign. Let me know by leaving the link to your tweet or post in your comment.

3. Giveaway ends soooooon, so enter quick. Draw date is 1 November 2013, one week from now.

1st prize: Double tickets to Sanlam Investments FoodWineDesign Fair AND a R3000 unit trust from Sanlam Investments.

4 x runner up prizes: Double tickets to the Fair as well as a hamper of 3 x bottles of wine from newcomers Marvelous Wines.

    Awesome giveaway! Well, I would most definitely put the investment aside until it had grown and grown and I could use some of the money to visit Ireland, which has been a dream of mine ever since I was little 🙂 I can just picture myself sipping on a Guinness in a cosy little pub!!!


  • Hannah aka Ham October 25, 2013 at 11:29 am

    I would put the money aside until I have a nice home of my own one day and hopefully it will help out with some decorating.

  • Lea October 25, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    I REALLY want to eat and drink and ogle my way through Italy. They have this food tour you can go on and all you pretty much do is eat and learn to cook and drink wine and eat and did I mention you eat?

  • Karen October 25, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    I would put it towards a yacht. Or a green card so that I could go live in Las Vegas and follow my dream of becoming a show girl. However, I’ve always wanted to start my own radio station in my garage called Karen’s World. Any dream would do though.

  • Samantha October 25, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    I would use it to make my European Dream come true… ive always wanted to travel / explore / experience and one day HOPEFULLY live in London 🙂 <3 even become a professional Tea drinker, Cucumber sandwich eater and Rainy weather lover!!

  • MeeA October 25, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    What a great giveaway! I have 4 kids, so every little bit that can be stashed away and/or invested to grow will come in handy somewhere along the line, whether it be used toward a college/university fund, a year’s wardrobe, a deposit for a car or any number of other things. Ideally, I would like to build up a nice chunk of savings to cushion any kind of financial mishaps we may encounter along the way. Once we’ve built up a reasonable sum, we can then start contributing the monthly premiums we would normally pay to various insurance companies to this savings account. By doing so, we ensure that we’re still covered for any catastrophic events but we’re not giving away several thousand Rand per month for *in case* something bad happens…

  • anna-marie October 25, 2013 at 2:47 pm

    I would definitely, without a doubt go to Disney Land because that has been a dream of mine ever since i was young. I would go on every ride like 5 times and eat as much junk food as i possible can 🙂

  • ben October 25, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    Hi there,

    I would use it to buy my girlfriend a big shiny engagement ring!!!

    my boyfriend and I are dying to go and travel south africa by doing a roadtrip before we venture overseas for holiday. we cannot experience another country before we have seen our own beauty.This prize would allow us to start the journey and make our relationship that much stronger. And he also said, the sooner I save more the quicker i get the ring 🙂 tweet:

  • Nicole October 26, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    Shew well it would have to be books books and books. I want to build a treehouse library one day and fill it with all the fantastic adventures and stories I have enjoyed over the years!! I want to create a space to read adventures ,fantasy and romances whilst creating a space to make some of your own! Just a few more years of collecting and designing!

  • Nicola Meyer October 27, 2013 at 9:04 am

    I have always wanted to go for a trip on the Blue Train. To watch our beautiful South African countryside and to try out food along the way. Bliss!!

  • Huibri October 27, 2013 at 5:15 pm

  • Amy. S. October 28, 2013 at 9:33 am

    Would love to laze on a beach in Greece while sipping cocktails with my love.

  • Carrie October 28, 2013 at 9:34 am

    I would take the money and build myself a little studio in my garden where I can do what I really want to do, which is paint, paint, paint 🙂

  • Nick P. October 28, 2013 at 10:53 am

    I’ve always wanted to go to Japan, just because I am fascinated with the massive cultural difference. Every other country I’ve been to seems to have some similarities to here, Japan seems to have none. So the money would have to be put towards that.

  • Lynn October 28, 2013 at 11:06 am

    Id let the unit trust mature, and plan 1 month break, road trip through the eastern, northern and western cape. I’ve always bragged about travelling overseas, but I think getting to experience SA would be more fitting, at first.

  • Thea October 28, 2013 at 12:39 pm

    I would start saving for my future child (or children). I really want to go to Greece, it just looks amazing!
    So excited about DearRae’s jewellery!!

  • Tracy October 28, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    I would love to catch a flight to Mexico and drink tequila with a worm in it.

  • Este October 28, 2013 at 5:16 pm

    I would use the money to pay you to wear a silver catsuit and promote Nordic Ice at Billy The Bums.

  • Danae October 28, 2013 at 6:16 pm

    I would put the unit trust aside until the end of next year or beginning of 2015 when I will hopefully be able to put it towards a deposit on buying a little flat, or at least a deposit on renting my own place once I graduate next year and need to move out. Alternatively, I would use it to take a cross country road trip with my beloved, something we’ve dreamed of since we started dating 3 years ago 🙂

  • Valeria Benigno October 28, 2013 at 8:30 pm

    To turn my backyard into a baby Morroccan sanctuary .. & spend the rest of summer outdoor eating tubs of hummus and pita bread and loaddddsss of meze & tapas.. OH YEAH all while listening to the sweet sound of Putumayo ( all Cafe sounds welcome ) 🙂 🙂

  • Ryno van den Berg October 28, 2013 at 10:46 pm

    I would use the unit trusts to go on an awesome holiday to Europe and see all the things which I have only dreamt about 🙂 shared link on twitter @rvdb1110

  • Samantha October 28, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    I would love to use the unit trust one day to do a tour of Italy, it’s such a beautiful country and it would be a wonderful experience touring and drinking in the culture and tasting the food. Have tweeted as @samiola_88 as well 😀

  • Ruth October 29, 2013 at 11:35 am

    A wonderful give away not to be missed – thank you!!! I would LOVE to use the Unit Trust to do a Safari in one of our Game Reserves with the family!

  • Melissa October 29, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    I would use this money to buy me and my husband tickets to Hawaii because we both have never been and we both have always wanted to go.

  • Jenna October 29, 2013 at 10:37 pm

    If you follow the links below, you will see some things that I have kept over the years. They are my journals/idea books/poems/novel ideas and there are a lot of them. Whether or not there might be a best-seller in there (or three) I would love the TIME to explore them. Even just for me. Obviously, I would help find a super-good enough person to fill my shoes at work (seeing as I work at the best restaurant in town) and would only use my investment once it had built up properly. If I could – I would take six to ten months off from the world, staying somewhere remote but definately by the sea and mountains, to explore the piles of these books that have things I haven’t seen since they came out of my pen years ago! That would be really really nice. Oh – and I’d get my butt in gear and get a photographic portfolio together as well as go for singing lessons once a week.

    I don’t have a child as yet, but I’m in the planning stages. I would use the Unit Trust to start saving towards my unborn child’s College Fund.

  • Camille October 31, 2013 at 8:16 am

    It may just be the 6 year old in me yearning to find elegance and wonder in the world again, but I would use the money to help fund my dream of traveling to St Petersburg, in the snow, and watching Swan Lake at the Mariinsky Theatre. Specific I know, but I was there as a young girl, and missed the ballet by the skin of my teeth.

    Here’s my tweet:

  • Amy H October 31, 2013 at 8:35 am

    I would use my unit trust towards a foodie experience close to home. I am passionate about vegetarian cooking, not the rabbit food kind but the ‘oh-my-god-I-didn’t-even-realise-there-is-no-meat-in-this’ kind. There is a chef called Daniel Jardim who (I believe) makes the best vegetarian food in all of South Africa. He cooks for the Buddhist Retreat Centre in Ixopo, KZN and he offers courses where you can learn his various recipes while chilling out in beautiful scenery in the mountains. I’ve been cooking from his cookbooks for a few years and it would be a dream to learn from the man himself!

  • Rentia Smal October 31, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    Travel through France & Italy. But biggest dream is to visit Paris and really live the life!

  • Jess October 31, 2013 at 2:58 pm

    I’d one day use my Uint Trusts to vosot Madagascar, and go scuba diving. I live in Cape Town, so I don’t think I’ll make it to the fair, but it sounds lovely. I tweeted here:

        **visit – gah – I can’t type!

  • Carryn October 31, 2013 at 3:47 pm

    I would use the fabulous R3000 Sanlam Investments unit trust towards an indulgent trip to experience the romance of Paris! I love watching old movies that feature Paris, one of my favourites being ‘Funny Face’ starring Audrey Hepburn.

    I tweeted 🙂

  • Erica Giljam October 31, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    I would go sailing in Thailand. Sailing between islands, drinking beer and eating as many prawns as I can get my grubby little fingers on…. 😀

  • Megan Bird-Steyn October 31, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    I would love to own my own little conservatory or green house where I can fiddle in the garden all day and night, winter or summer. The money would go towards that and expanding on my beautiful succulent collection.

    First step, to invest and watch it grow. Second step, re-invest and watch it grow some more. Third step, giving back to my folks who given so much to get me where I am today. Pension schemes don’t go very far these days and I’d love for them to have a comfortable retirement. They put me on my own pension path at the age of 25 – a good investment by any parent!

  • Annique Schourie November 1, 2013 at 11:59 am

    I will def use the investment to impact lives in the East. 🙂 i have always felt my heart stirred for the people of the nations.

    I will LOVE to travel through Vietnam!

    I miss eating Rambutan in abundance! Our lychees are so old school!
