My First Giveaway! Happy 25

It doesn't take a whole lot to make me happy and excited, so I was particularly thrilled over this weekend when I reached the 25 followers mark! I know this is a small thing for most of you gals, but I'm surprised that I have been blogging consistently for as long as I have (three + months, woo hoo) and that there's one - much less 25 (or *gasp* maybe more) - of you lovely ladies out there who read my blog.

So as a big THANK YOU for reading my blog and providing me with endless fashion and life inspiration, I thought it'd be fun to host my first giveaway.

The rules are real simple - to enter, just be a follower of my blog (new or regular) and leave a comment on this post with your e-mail address. This giveaway is only open to those with a US or Canadian address.

And here are some more details about the giveaway items:

A brand new copy of Keel's Simple Diary from Anthropologie in the sunny yellow. Anthropologie describes the diary as:
An easy way to record life's moments without the daunting task of facing a blank journal page, this book melds open-ended, fill-in-the-blank and multiple choice questions with bits of psychology and whimsy, creating a tool to help those time-pressed-yet-ponderous gain some insight.
• Leather, paper
• 6.75"H, 4.75"W
• 136 pages
• Taschen

Also, a new J. Crew glass cylinder necklace in black (now sold out). Purchased from the web site. J. Crew describes the necklace as:
Simply stunning with cylindrical glass-crystal beads and crystal-encrusted 14K gold-plated brass fireballs, all hand strung on nylon thread, with a pretty poly/satin grosgrain ribbon. 20" of beading and 18" of ribbon on each side. French wires connect the beading to the ribbon. Import. Ribbon-tie closure. Full necklace length: 56".

The necklace will come packed securely in a J. Crew silver gift box and the diary is still shrink-wrapped and has never been open. Both items will be packed and shipped together.

I will pick the winner using Random.org on Saturday, March 27 at 5:00 p.m. EST.

Thanks and good luck and thanks!

  6. I just found your blog when I was commenting on Wanderlusting Fool. And here I stumble upon it only to find a giveaway? Yes please! enter me...and I would be following your blog, giveaway or not, I like it.
    And don't worry too much about the # of followers, it took me almost a year to get to where I'm at, and its not even that big of a #. Just stick with it and remember to blog for yourself, not for your readers. Do what makes YOU happy!
