My First Giveaway!!

So, this is my 101st post!! Who knew that in January when I started blogging that I would like it this much and that I would find this much to write about. There are so many kind and generous bloggers out there who have hosted giveaways, I thought I'd host one as well for this milestone. I got an amazing email yesterday stating that one of my favorite etsy artists finally was able to start her own website for her jewelry. To celebrate her accomplishment and my 101st post, I am doing a giveaway in her honor.

Stella's jewelry is incredible! The pictures on her website are great, but even they don't do "real life" justice. I ordered my best friend and matron of honor the Catherine earrings as part of her bridesmaid gift, and she loves them. Stella's jewelry is delicate, pretty, and easily wearable for day-to-day wear as well as dressier occasions. Since summer is almost here, I've decided to give the Sea Breeze Necklace (pictured below) to one lucky reader. The color will be perfect for all the white tops and dresses that come out of hiding this time of year, and it will look great against tan skin as well! Plus, it's so delicate, it will still be wearable even on the warmest of days.


The giveaway will end next Wednesday, April 29th at 5 p.m. I'll pick the winner that night. Rules are as follows:
1. Leave a comment telling me your favorite item off Stella's site for your first entry.
2. Become a follower or let me know you are one, for two extra entrys.
3. Post about this on your blog or on your sidebar for 3 additional entrys.

This gives everyone a possible 6 entrys into the contest. Good Luck! It's definitely something I would want to win, and I hope you all feel the same way!

Also, Stella is offering 20% off all purchases on her website through May 31st with the code TWENTYOFF, and free shipping for orders over $100. If you know anyone getting married this year who is looking for something extra for her girls, or you yourself have fun gift giving opportunities coming up, this is a great opportunity!!

A few of my favorite items from her line include these below:






Gorgeous, huh?? Good luck to all and enjoy your weekends!!! I'll chat with you all again once I'm back from FL!
