COMPETITION – win a rock and roll cushion!

It feels like a bit of an oxymoron doesn’t it? A rock and roll cushion.

I like it though. It makes me feel like the evenings I spend on the sofa, doing a spot of knitting with my feet and up watching reruns of Jonathan Creek really might be cool after all.*

Even if I’m not though, this cushion most definitely is rock and roll. Come on, look at it!

Rock and roll cushion


It’s a design from the super talented and clearly very funky Jennie Maizels, the lady who makes the clothes plasters. Have you seen them? We’ve got some, and they are brilliant for a spot of mending or just adding a personal touch to your clothes. If you’ve no idea what I’m talking about but are curious then you’re in luck, as Jennie and I are chucking in a free pack when you win your cushion.

rock and roll plasters


To enter to win this charming cushion/plaster combo, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me why you are super cool and deserve this prize. Or maybe instead why your home needs a touch of rock and roll. The competition will close on 19th April and full T&Cs are available here.

    I need this cushion to brighten up my living room,it’s far too dull and boring at the moment! :)

    I need this prize because I’m a rocking single mummy on nothing but no sleep.
    The sides of my head are shaved Mohawk style and I dress myself and my son in leopard print and rock t-shirts so we obviously NEED the cushion and amazing plasters to bring our style full circle!
    Thanks for reading, rock on.

    Because I shut my niece up when she tried telling me, I have a horrible music taste. My song choices are clearly cooler than a Justin Bieber playlist, right? ;)


  4. 1 April, 2013 / 5:54 pm

    I’ve just moved into my new flat and I’m in total need of some character. This would be the perfect start to a new style flat.

  5. 1 April, 2013 / 5:58 pm

    Cool! I would like this prize because: The only ‘Rock’s in my life are in the garden
    The only ‘Roll’s in my life hold toilet-paper
    And although I have a cushion or three
    They are not funky as the one by Jen-nie!

  6. Hannah Irish
    1 April, 2013 / 7:12 pm

    I need some rock and roll in my life as my living room looks like a messy toy shop all the time!

    I am so super cool, no strike that, uber-cool, that I have to have this cushion. I may look like a middle aged frumpy mother of 4 young & slightly crazy children, but underneath it all I am a rock goddess hiding from the washing up and school runs……..I need this cushion to hold on to as I rock to and fro in the corner……:)

    I’m in the process of decorating my bedroom. When it’s done I’ll be ordering a colour changing light up bed. Now if that’s not both cool AND rock & roll I don’t know what is! – the cushion would look perfect on it :)

  9. Sharon Griffin
    2 April, 2013 / 12:17 pm

    i love this cushion because it reminds me of the film ” grease” that i watched when it first came out and i remember wishing i could have been around in the 1950`s. I love the music, fashion and nostalgia that this era is full of and this cushion would be a little piece of that sitting on my sofa x

  10. 2 April, 2013 / 12:19 pm

    I’d love this cushion because before I had my son, I was a pure punk rocker with hair every colour. Now, after having him, I’ve toned it down and gone boring brown! This would help put that rockiness back into my life!

  11. 2 April, 2013 / 12:33 pm

    would be nice, to add a bit of colour and excitement to my home :)

  12. 2 April, 2013 / 1:09 pm

    I NEED one of these cushions for my chair in my study/spare room. I’m attempting to jazz it up a bit but it needs a bit of help…

  13. Sue Bowden
    2 April, 2013 / 1:52 pm

    I can ‘rock’ and I can ‘roll’, and I am extremley cool, or at least that is what I tell myself, because nobody else does. This cushion looks fantastic and would look great on my sofa, it would brighten up the room so much.

  14. katie walters
    2 April, 2013 / 2:46 pm

    im super cool because i always read my son a bedtime story and i always take time everyday to do something with my son;whether it be going for a walk or playing a board game with him :-)

  15. 2 April, 2013 / 3:26 pm

    I think I am cool enough for this prize because I taught my children all there is to know about music (no Steps, 80’s pop or chart stuff in our house) oh and I read your blog so I know I am cool ;) @Bobbity666

  16. bayview
    2 April, 2013 / 6:49 pm

    I need a bit of rock n roll to show my kids I can still ‘rock’ it.

  17. 2 April, 2013 / 8:14 pm

    Jonathan Creek – that made me laugh!!

    This is also waaaayyyyyy to rock and roll for me but it would be ACE in my uber cool 9 year olds bedroom! Right up his street xx

  18. 2 April, 2013 / 8:16 pm

    I need some supercool rockstar input in my life because my taste in music stopped in 1992. While this could be a good thing (there’s no X Factor rejects in my world), I’m woefully old before my time. A Rock n Roll cushion would appeal to both my outer granny-ness and my need to drag myself kicking & screaming into the 21st century.

    This time last year our house was a slightly cluttered (meaning untidy) yet stylish home of two rather eccentric, well-travelled persons of eclectic and geeky tastes and interests. We spent our spare cash/time on city breaks, theatre trips, entertaining friends and pointless collectibles. Now you cannot cross a room without tripping over a playmat, bouncer, swing, car seat or toy that crinkles/squeaks/jingles/rattles/all of the above. We have no spare/cash time and get far too excited about things like new footmuffs, Jumparoos and the latest Lamaze toy! Yes, we’re over the moon with our little boy but have seriously lost what little cool we had to begin with. Our fate is in your hands!

    ” i love rock n roll- put another dime in the Jukebox baby”

  22. 3 April, 2013 / 2:40 pm

    Erm, I am NOT “super cool” so I deserve to win the cushion because it MAY actually add some cool to me at last! Lol.

  23. Jenette ogborn
    4 April, 2013 / 10:35 am

    I would love this for my daughter who loves anything quirky and when she next goes on a long trip she could use this to keep comfy as well as looking good.

  24. Claire Butler
    4 April, 2013 / 10:45 am

    plaster combo looks fab and just what i need for my little boy

  25. 4 April, 2013 / 1:47 pm

    LOVE the idea of a rock n roll cushion. At my age, my body yearns for the comfort of soft furnishings while my head refuses to believe I am not still a rock chick teenager. This prize would connect these two parts of my being, restoring harmony and balance to my life!

  26. 9 April, 2013 / 1:51 pm

    My house seems to have been taken over by chocolate & cream colours so I need to inject some colour into the place!

  27. Christine Lockley
    10 April, 2013 / 2:45 pm

    I’d love to win this fabulous cushion just to prove that I have great taste and some life left to live.

    Thanks for the chance to win x

  28. 11 April, 2013 / 12:04 pm

    I’d love to win this awesome cushion as I’ve a baby on the way and with a daughter already my home is covered with kid stuff, this would add some grown up touch to the place and make my wee corner feel lovely x

  29. 11 April, 2013 / 12:49 pm

    That cushion rocks and would fit puuuurfectly into my garden apple thingy.
    I can just picture it…me leaning against that, watching the children happily playing…record scratches….or maybe not.
    The rocks in my house are those in the garden and the rolls? *points to tummy*.

  30. Lisa Troccoli
    11 April, 2013 / 1:51 pm

    I am a real rock chick! I have seen Bryan Adams live many times and my husband plays his guitar nearly every night and now my son has one! Music is our lives :) x

  31. 12 April, 2013 / 7:23 pm

    Check out those cushions of loveliness! I’m an older mum who’s still swinging her thing but mainly in my mind rather than on the streets. They would be perfect for keeping the coolness alive and real!

  32. Cher Waite
    14 April, 2013 / 7:05 pm

    I need a new cushion desperately.. Frank (my cat) made the last one, a fluffy beige effort, his girlfriend. He wined and dined her.. and often I would walk in when he was biting her suggestively, so she had to leave. We are currently cushionless and I’m guessing the Rock n Roll cushion would be out of his league, so he would leave it alone. Please help! The most rock n roll I get is listening to snow patrol very loud in my car. Oh dear.

  33. Jane Berrow
    18 April, 2013 / 6:25 am

    I decluttered my house and now it has no personality! I would love to win this cushion.

    I now give shake, rattle and roll a whole new meaning,
    I need this cushion to stop me leaning
