Lilmissbelle 12 Days of Christmas
Day 12: Picazzo Restaurant
Whoop whoop! It’s day 12 guys!!!
This has been the most hectic December in my entire life. Usually, I am always about chilling and taking it easy. But this time round, I took cognizance of the immense growth that my brand had realized and decided that I owe it to my fans to say thank you for coming along with me on this journey. And what better way than to reward you guys with goodies from brands that I love and that also believe in the value of my work?
The adage nothing good comes easy is not a lie. This blog is a labour of Love. There are times I have had to wake up at 4am to put up a post. There are days I have poured my heart and soul into a feature only to receive such low readership, and others when I put together a farce in like five minutes and the world flocks onto my website. I don’t get you guys. Honestly, I really don’t.
But, like I said. It’s a labour if love. I am grateful that I discovered writing much as I discovered running and I now can’t function properly if I keep off these two for too long.
Thank you to all the brands that partnered with me to make #lilmissbelle12daysofchristmas a success. Truth be told, it felt like a far-fetched idea when I started and I was scared that I wasn’t going to fill up all the 12 days. But I pushed on, knocked on doors, made countless calls some which were ignored but in the end, I got the results that I wanted. Congratulations to all the winners. Please share images of your winnings on social media with the hashtag #lilmissbelle12daysofchristmas and tag @lil_missbelle.
Finally for day 12, I have partnered with Picazzo Restaurant at The Hub to give one of you a Ksh 5,000 voucher. Simply go to my Instagram page and caption this photo which shows Xena and her friend Makena at Picazzo seated and Xena’s sister Xia crawling under the table. The most creative caption wins. Make sure you have subscribed to this blog, following my IG account (@lil_missbelle) and that of Picazzo (@picazzo_restaurant) . Please drop a comment here saying “Done” once you caption the photo on IG for tracking purposes. I will announce the winner in the comment section of the IG post tomorrow at 3:00pm.
Thank you guys for reading, for your words of encouragement, for bearing with my long posts and for checking up on me on the few weeks that I did not put up anything. In the first half of next year, I will be so busy with my main job and my last level of the Chartered Financial Analyst exams. However, will try to ensure that your emails ping at exactly 6am every Monday. I have learnt that if you want something really bad and you put all your mind and energy into it, the stars will align. Perhaps you could let me know what you would like to read in the coming year?
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2018. See you here on the 8th of January at 6:00am, if God wills.

Thought to let you know that you are doing a great job with the site and with your brand — your energy is admirable and inspiring and infectious (in a good way!). I also liked your 12 days of Christmas giveaways; it was very thoughtful of you to reward your readers so.
Here’s to wishing you all the best as you kick off your 2018. May you achieve the goals you’ve set out to — mind over matter, as you’ve put it up there — and may you not tire along the way.
Thank you, Bett. The world needs more cheerleaders like you. I wish you all the best in 2018. You are doing a wonderful job as well with craftit.co.ke
To bigger and better things in 2018!
