I have a new friend and it follows me around the house wherever I go. And I love it.
I’ve always had a thing about radio; listening to the dulcet tones of Radio 4 in the morning and whilst I work or playing music whilst I cook in the evenings. I also love listening to podcasts, especially on Sunday afternoons or as I sew. My new VQ digital retro radio is perfect for all these things and more. It can run on batteries so I can carry it around with me from room to room (or you can plug it in) and I can also pull out the iPod dock and hook it up to my phone and play music from Spotify, which works perfectly when we have friends round. You can even connect it to your computer and the sound quality is great. Most importantly (obvs!), I think it looks great and the leatherette finish is really high quality. I really, really love it.
The lovely folks over at VQ are offering one of my readers a retro radio, worth £79.99, in a colour or pattern of your choice – see them all here. Wouldn’t it make a perfect Christmas present, too?
To enter the giveaway, which ends at midnight on Monday 7th December, all you have to do is complete the Rafflecopter below.

Loving the cream. Would look great in my bedroom makeover I have planned for the new year.

It would have to be the mustard yellow for its bright beauty! Radios are such wonderful things. I have one in my kitchen but would love one in my little study. They are companions and sources of such information. Transporting you back with a few bars of a song or getting you up on your feet for an impromptu (and often secret) dance! They are wonderful things and these designs and colours celebrate that it spades!
Wow! Such a great giveaway. I’d love the cream or teal. Both would look amazing in my new kitchen.
