How to Enter

Entering is really easy; all we ask is that you share your most romantic moment with us! This can be absolutely anything, it doesn’t have to be Valentines related, but the most important thing is that it means something to you! You can share your story in whichever way you want so feel free to include photos and collages as, in true cupid style; we will be selecting the most romantic one as the winner!

All that we ask is that you post your memory on your own blog/website and leave a link to your post in the comments box underneath! Please note, this competition is only open to bloggers and only entries in the aforementioned format will be accepted.

Here is some inspiration to get you started…

Say you got engaged in Paris and your most romantic moment was your new fiancé feeding you croissants whilst walking under the Eiffel Tower. This collage and a short paragraph explaining the day would be an excellent competition entry!
