Screen Shot 2015-03-23 at 10.29.16 AM

OMG we’re 66 followers away from 10,000 on Instagram & officially ‘getting the k’ which is crazy unbelievable. Every thousand followers we’ve celebrate by creating the number out of an assortment of things from stickers to coffee pods, marshmellows, jelly tots & Oreos, it’s been fun. For this big one we thought we would hand it over to you – create the number 10,000 or simply 10k out of whatever you like, but they have to be real things, no typefaces overlaid on an image. The rules: has to be uploaded to Instagram in a square format, otherwise if you’re all about the Whitagram borders, upload it like that & email a square version to, a white/clean background is preferable but it’s up to you! When you upload make sure to include #NiftyMilestones so we can see it.. Enter as many times as you like, the more the merrier.

– 1st prize Nifty voucher for x100 polaroid prints + delivery

– 2nd prize Nifty voucher for x50 polaroid prints + delivery

– 3rd prize Nifty voucher for x30 polaroid prints + delivery

Closing date: dependant on when we hit 10,000

The first winner of the #MyNiftyValentine competition & a wonderful Yuppiechef sugary chocolate gift hamper is @elvermeulen who shared this beautiful photograph & story with us ‘he is the one I can just be myself with, who brings out the best in me and understands me. We have a lot of memories together, traveling through Botswana, road tripping to the Cape, finishing our degrees together, just to name a few.. Through ups and down he always stands besides me. Looking forward to Valentines Day with this one!’

As much as we loved the #NiftyColourProject – you all were ahmazing, there were over 1400 photos tagged! It’s onto bigger & better things.. We’re going to call it the #NiftyWeeklyProject & every week we’ll choose a theme (which we’ll announce of the blog on a Monday & on our Instagram) sometimes broad & sometimes quite narrow.

This week we want you to show us your favourite coffee shops, from the baristas, to the beans to the foam art! Simply take a photo, upload it to Instagram & include the hashtag! If we love & regram your photo on our Instagram account you’ll win a Nifty voucher for x16 Strips – delivery not included.

Upload a photo of a sunrise (like this one by @lucasradams) with #VAhappysummer & you could win a whole lotta Nifty vouchers – we love brands that use our products as prizes, so obviously we had to spread the love a lil bit :)
