Mrs. O’s 2015 birthday giveaway. Or your own #paradisefound moment

Well well well, another year has gone by – and what a year it has been! As you may know (or not), my birthday is on April 14th and I am a great believer in celebrating what I call ‘birthday month’. Because a day is not enough, obviously. So to celebrate it in style, I have partnered with Sovereign, one of the most respected UK luxury travel companies for this luxury travel giveaway.

With more than 40 years experience in providing luxury holidays they pride themselves in offering exceptional value with superior treatment on every holiday.

What’s more, they are obsessed with one thing: finding your own Paradise. According to the Oxford Dictionary it’s the ‘ultimate abode’ – the most lovely, perfect place that you can imagine. At Sovereign, they are experts at finding that place for thousands of people every year.

And guess what, 5 lucky winners will be finding their own paradise very soon, as I have 5 extraordinary Sovereign hotel stays to gift to 5 readers.

What are the prizes, I hear you say? Well… read on!
