Wow! I seriously cannot believe that 100 of you follow my blog! So exciting and such a big “blog milestone.” I really, really appreciate everyone who reads my posts and especially those of you that comment. I know it sounds lame but this is my favorite hobby (yes, even more than laying out – imagine that!) and having people comment on my blog entries gives me the motivation to keep at it. It makes it more fun getting to know all of YOU too 🙂 I’ve made so many friends through the blog world and I’m excited for all the future ones to come!!!
I did a post last week about voting that would take place to see which Stella and Dot item I’d be giving away when I hit 100 followers. Guess what?!?! The results ended in a TIE. It was between the Avery Chains and Pearls Necklace and the Sunset Bangle. So I get to choose! And I’ve chosen…
Retails for $69!!!
I picked this piece for two reasons: 1) it just SCREAMS summer to me and 2) it seems like EVERY trunk show I host people say they “don’t wear gold.” Hello people – GOLD IS BACK in a HUGE way! I’m hoping that this giveaway will help motivate you all to try adding a little gold back into your jewelry wardrobe – I promise you’ll love it 🙂
I feel bad that in the end I ended up picking the item to giveaway when I was hoping to let it be your decision since you’re my readers sooooo I’m also throwing in a $25 gift certificate! That way YOU can order whatever you want!!!
In addition to my fabulous prizes a friend of mine from high school, Brandy, is throwing in some goodies as well. And it can benefit EVERYONE! She’s just started with Mary Kay (who doesn’t love their stuff? It’s the best!) and is giving away to one of you….
Mary Kay After Sun Replenishing Gel
Both of these freebies (a retail value of $26!) are must-haves for your summer beach tote! Plus for ALL of my readers until April 30th YOU can get $15 off your Mary Kay purchase. Simply visit her personal Mary Kay website (which you can find HERE) and click the top right corner tab that says “MyMK.” Register as her customer (and put the code EP04 after your last name so she knows you came from my site to give you the discount) and you get $15 off your order of $40 or more! In addition, you’ll all get free shipping. Who doesn’t love that?!?
Here’s how to win this prize package valued at $120!!!!
