Prague Log

So waaay back in April I went on a fabulous holiday with some of my girlfriends from college. We made a quick stop in London and then ventured off to Prague for a week of sightseeing, eating and drinking. As per usual, I had high hopes about how I could share our adventures here on the Dot Girl Blog, but then failed to make time to execute my lofty ambitions. So instead of carrying the guilt of a missed opportunity around with me I've decided to share tidbits of our excursions as I find time to do so.
I'll start off by sharing some photos I captured of my friends sporting their Vivi Dot gear. This is Andrea sporting a bright green Chrysanthemum Vivi Dot Flower Brooch. She's partaking in one of our favorite finds from the trip, Potato Soup. This delicious soup was on just about every menu, until we were seeking it out on our last night. After seeing it and having it nearly each place we ate, we spent over an hour hunting it down for our last meal in town. And here's lovely Stacey wearing two Private School Plaid hair clips on our walking tour up to the Prague Castle.Okay, so there's not Vivi Dot item in this shot, but I can't post about Pruage and leave out the pivo! And finally here's a pic of my Traveling Gnome Earring posing by the candlelight at one of our scrumptious and wine fueled dinners. You can see some more pics from our trip on the Vivi Dot Flickr Page.

Remember Me?!?

It's been too long! The guilt of not finding the time to post has become quite unbearable and I'm happy to finally clear my conscious. My blog post to do list is long, but I'd like to start by pointing out two lovely new players in the game of Spot the Dot!
Alisha received a free gift with her recent Vivi Dot order because she said the magic words, 'I'm playing Spot the Dot' at check out! See how easy that is to start off the game with ten Vivi Points? She's also following Vivi Dot on Twitter so that earns her another two.Next up is Sandra Sandrus. She's been busy finding blog posts about Vivi Dot (two Vivi Points each) and also follows us on Twitter (+2). I've decided to throw in another two Vivi points for her Spot the Dot tweet as well! Check out her new blog Barbeint.blogg.no for some poetry. Don't speak Norweigen? Google Translate works well for me.
Thanks for playing ladies! Keep it up and you'll earn your free gift in no time.

Back from Afar!

I've returned from afar and apologize for my prolonged absence. I'm especially sorry to Isil from the blog Work In Progress who has been earning Spot the Dot points while I was away. This congratulatory post about her earning her free gift is long over due! Thanks to Isil for posting not one, but two entries with fun photos of her wearing her Vivi Dot purchases (you can find the other on her second blog here.



Ina of Myldretid also deserves a shout for earning 4 more points for following Vivi Dot on Twitter (2 points) and becoming a fan of Vivi Dot of Facebook (2 points). That brings her up to 36 points!

I have lots to catch you up on after returning from an amazing trip to London and Prague with 4 of my best girlfriends (and a brief appearance by a 5th). I'll catch up with vacation photos, the story and snapshots of my adventurous friend the traveling gnome, and other exciting Vivi Dot announcements soon.

Ina of Myldretid.wordpress.com just received the Spot the Dot gift pack she earned by surpassing 30 points in the game! As the first person to reach this point value I thought she deserved an extra special prize package filled with Vivi Dot items chosen especially for her. I even included a pair of Purple Tiny Bow Hair Clips that aren't even available in the Vivi Dot Store yet! Other items included a ring, a 4-pack of buttons (check out the coming soon prints there too) and some Spot the Dot stickers. I'm very excited to give Ina (and you) a sneak peek at the new custom made Vivi Dot fabrics I designed myself (with Duncan's photoshop help). These and many other fun new prints will be popping up in the ViviDotStore quite soon.It's really quite simple to earn 30 points, so check out the rules of the Spot the Dot game here and join in on the fun today!

The first Vivi-Points Rewarded

I'm excited that this lovely picture from myldretid.wordpress.com earns the first 10 Vivi-Points! Congrats to you. Just 20 more and a free gift will be coming your way.
This lovely lady is a 22-year-old literature student who lives and works in Copenhagen. I absolutely adore her style and LOVE that Vivi Dot fits into her girly and eclectic wardrobe! I'm also extremely jealous of her ability to knit the cutest hats.

Do you WishWishWish for Free Vivi Dot?

One of my new favorite blogs, WishWishWish.net posted a contest for some free Vivi Dot items over the weekend. Hop on over to her site and comment on the Vivi Dot post to be entered to win.

Oh and by the way... I can't get enough of British English vocabulary. Hair grips! It makes perfect sense and isn't that much different than what they're called in America, but for some reason it sounds oh so much more charming.
