Revamp and Giveaway!!!

Notice anything new??? My blog has been long overdue for an update! I actually hunted around, thinking I might pay someone to redo the blog for me. Then I realized that if I pay someone to do it I no longer have the control over changing it…plus the cheapest I could find was $80!!! Are you joking? I casually asked Zach about it and he was quick to say, “your blog looks fine.” Haha. One of my goals this year is to spend smart and, to me, spending that much money on a FREE hobby that doesn’t make us any money just doesn’t make sense. Especially when you can google how to do it all for free! 

It’s still not 100% finished but so far I like it! What do you think? I know it looks like I lost all my comments but it’s in the process of transferring them over…the first time it freaked me out but now I know it just may take a couple days (over 1,000 entries is a LOT of posts to catch up on for it!) I also updated my domain name…it’s now Shorter and easier 🙂 No worries though will still direct you to here! The BAD thing about updating is I lost ALL of my linked up blogs 🙁 I’m working on getting them all back but if I lost yours please let me know!

I’ve officially hit 200 followers so it’s another excuse for a fun giveaway!!! To celebrate I really wanted to give away something exciting…something that I would want to keep for myself…

That’s right! I’m giving away a COACH PURSE!!! It’s a leather pleated swing pack with fabric lining and a zip-top closure. It also has an outside zip pocket with a 45″ adjustable strap. The dimensions are 8 1/4″ long and 6 1/4 high. It’s in black but I wanted to use this picture in the tan color so you can see the strap…I totally love it! It’s valued at $148.

You know I couldn’t have a giveaway and not do something Stella and Dot…so I’m also throwing in a $25 Stella and Dot Gift Certificate! That’s a giveaway total value of over $150. Told you I wanted to celebrate in a big way 🙂

    I browsed your S&D site and 3 of my favorites are 1) the talia earrings, 2) the stackable gem ring and 3) the chantilly lace earrings — actually, I love those so much that I bought them at a party a few months ago and wear them at least once a week!!  🙂
