Tidestore Giveaway (and winner announcement)

*Drum roll* ...

The winner of the Hello Berry giveaway is Lou! Thanks to everyone that entered and thank you to the lovely team at Hello Berry. I'll be in touch with you soon Lou, congratulations!

Now that the Christmas season is upon us, giveaways are even more appropriate - and I love being able to give back to readers. So I present:

You might recognise the brand Tidestore from the skirt in this post, and the team behind Tidestore are giving away a $50 voucher to use on their site. (Trust me, it'll go a long way!)

To enter:
1. Follow me on Bloglovin'
2. Register at Tidestore3. Leave your name and the email you registered with in a comment below.
Too easy - Good luck!

Update: I hate that I have to do this but the people behind Tidestore leave me with no choice if they refuse to respond to my (many) emails. This giveaway has been cancelled and it's unfortunate that a well-established company can be so unprofessional. My sincere apologies to any inconvenience and disappointment this has caused. Excited to give something back to readers, I was unfortunately eager to accept the opportunity but vow to be more cautious in the future! If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to email me.

  9. Hi! Following and registered with

  10. Thanks for the giveaway Jysla!
    I had quite a lot of fun searching through Tidestore imagining outfits I could build and pieces I could snatch up with $50. You're right! It really does go a long way :)

    I am of course following you on Bloglovin' and registered at Tidestore with the e-mail
    Fingers crossed and wishing everyone the best of luck!


  11. One interesting thing that I did notice was that quite a few pictures advertising their clothing did not seem to be their photos. For instance, I saw that they were using a Victoria's Secret photo to advertise swimsuits. Another example I saw was that on the link for one of their trench coats, they were showing pictures of a trench coat that was not the one they were selling. It very clearly said Burberry on it and evidently was one (of perhaps multiple?) photos taken from another source and edited to have a Tidestore watermark.

    While this doesn't really pertain to the giveaway at hand, I'm still intrigued by the ethics of such practices and am perhaps interested in getting in touch with the representatives over at Tidestore.

    Jysla, I would love to know what you think of this and any opinions you may have in regards to the store, their clothing, etc!

  12. It is very misleading and unethical advertising although, unfortunately, quite common also. I think that since most of the clothing on the site is modelled off the high end designer brands, they feel that it is somewhat justified to use the photos as a form of advertising and to persuade people to buy the pieces.

    Not only does this happen with a majority of the Chinese online stores, I see this happen quite a lot with some eBay sellers too - I just hope that people are not misled into thinking that it is indeed the same product being sold.

    Thanks for the insightful comment! Not sure whether Tidestore would be willing to change their advertising tactics (perhaps too costly), but it is a good point. x
