The Giveaway of All Giveaways!

Welcome to my blogoversary give away!! I won't keep you waiting, here are the wonderful prizes you can win!!

The first, not one, but two, items are from the Etsy shop "Pinned Up"
I love these hair pins because they are a simple way to add a personal touch to any simple outfit. I actually own this next one and I think it is super cute!
This next item is the Goa Pendant Necklace from Stella & Dot.
You all know how I love me some Stella & Dot!
This next item comes from the good folks at Nintendo (it pays to read a blogger that is a Nintendo brand ambassidor doesn't it?) It is the Pic Cross 3D game for the Nintendo DS! This game is quite fun if I do say so myself.
What's that you say? You don't own a Nintendo DS? Oh that is rather unfortunate. I'm sorry. You will probably have to give the game away to someone that has a Nintendo DS.
I wouldn't do that to you.
I am giving you a Nintendo DS XL.
Yes, really.
Just look!
This isn't your mama's DS, it is the XL which means the screen is 93% bigger than a regular DS!

Stella And Dot Jewelry

I love me some jewelry, really though, when in doubt jewelry is the perfect gift for me. I love the way it sparkles and shows parts of your personality that your clothing just can't. So when my friend Elizabeth said that she became a Stella and Dot Stylist it was like the heavens opened up and angels sang on my behalf-at that moment I had found my jewelry dealer. She had the good stuff at good prices and unlike drugs, a jewelry addiction is socially acceptable! WIN WIN FOLKS!

I went to a trunk show at her house and I couldn't stop touching the stuff. It was pretty and so well made! However, said trunk show was a couple months ago when I wasn't really making much money-so jewelry had to wait. Stupid bills. So that meant I had to walk away from the show sans jewelry.
Sad Sassy.

Well, Elizabeth contacted me recently and said that she would be willing to give me a piece of jewelry of my choosing to review. Holla at your jewelry lover! I seriously ordered the necklace um, maybe 2 days ago and it arrived in my mail box today!

And look at the packaging!

I instantly put the cute necklace on and just knew it had found a forever home with me. It is such good quality. Ya know how some catalogue jewelry looks like it came from a gumball machine? Not Stella & Dot Jewelry, no siree bob. This is the good stuff!
(Please ignore my scraggly hair and just keep your eyes on the necklace. Thank You.)

If you are interested in checking out some great jewelry at equally as great prices go here. Go here now. And if you are located in California, the Bay Area more specifically and want Elizabeth to host a trunk show for you contact her here!

100% Pure

I picked up this awesome lotion, 100% Pure, in Truckee on our way home from Tahoe. The lavender scent makes me super excited to put it on everyday. But what is more exciting that this lotion really is 100% Pure. For instance, this is a completely vegan lotion, meaning no animal products and no animal testing whatsoever!

I bet you didn't know that 60% of things absorbed through the skin (like lotions) end up in your blood stream. I didn't know that before perusing the 100% Pure website. That fact really scares me-think of all the chemicals that end up in your bloodstream! Well I don't have to worry about that with 100% Pure-no chemicals AT ALL! Best thing is I can read and know what ALL of the ingredients are!

I love supporting companies like 100% Pure because it is about time we start putting all natural products in the forefront of our consumer consciousness; it is best for the environment and our bodies!
