Week of Giveaways: Meadow Boutique

It's Friday! Clearly we're pushing on in our week of giveaways.  How fun has it been so far?! I want to say a special thanks to all of the amazing vendors!!




Since it's Friday and normally I do a fashion post, I thought it'd be the perfect day to run the giveaway from Meadow Boutique, the adorable shop I write the blog for in Seattle.
If you've visited Meadow's blog, then you know how undeniably cute the boutique is. I'm not just saying that because I work there (: We have sweet and unique clothing, accessories, home goods and decor, jewelry, and lots of other goodies!
Here are a few of my favorite pieces from Meadow as of lately:





Got this for my mom's birthday!


Remember this one?! 

It was a keeper(:


You believe me now when I say Meadow is my favorite store (:


Let's get to the giveaway!


Shelley, the sweet owner of Meadow, is giving away this brightly colored makeup pouch:




Since turquoise is still alllll the rage, I thought it was perfect.  I'd love to store my makeup in that...what about you?!


Here's what you do...

Well this week is flying by with giveaways coming at you left and right! Hope you're enjoying it. I'm excited to get back to regular posting next week, though (:


Today we're continuing on with our 4th day of giveaways...




A while back I found Danielle's adorable Etsy Shop called Dani Notes. I was immediately smitten with her notecards, custom iphone cases, and monogrammed everything.  There's just something about seeing your initials on something (:


Today, the super sweet Danielle has a treat for us!  One of my readers will get to choose between two fabulous sets of notecards from her collection.  Here are your choices:


1. Monogrammed:



OR


2. Cupcakes:




If you're anything like me, then sending and receiving cards both make your day!  Note cards are one of those things I just "accidentally" walk out of a store with...can't stop myself.


So...now that you want them, let's get to entering!

She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not: Me!

Today I'm popping in to do my own installment of She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not.  This is one of my favorite posts to write, so I decided to do it myself this week (: Hope ya don't mind!  Here we go...


She Loves Me:


1. These photos.
My friend Emily is the seriously amazing photographer behind Gem Photo and she took these photos on her most recent vacation to Europe.  These pictures were captured in Burano and Em has left me wanting to go real bad! Can we just talk about the colors?!
Incredible.




2. My new sparkly flip flops from J. Crew for only $6.99!!

3. The color Turquoise.





4. This dresser I found from a cute new blog I discovered, I Just Might Explode.
I mean, really...how genius is this?!






5. JP from The Bachelorette.
I won't lie, I'm addicted to the show, but am the least bit impressed with Ashley. However, I loveeee JP. But if he doesn't win, it's fine...I guess I'll take him off Ashley's hands (:




6. Baskin Robbins Cookies 'N Cream ice cream.
With Rainbow Sprinkles.
The only way to go (:


7. I'm loving that Whippy Cake is giving away a $30 gift card to one lucky reader of mine!
{Comment on the post below this one to enter}



She Loves Me Not:


1. That my brother has been gone on a trip for a few weeks now.
 I miss him!




2. That Million Dollar Decorator's had their season finale last week.  
What am I going to do without those hilarious decorators each week?! I already miss hearing Martin saying "Oh, darling!" every 5 seconds.




3.  My sweet Shasta is in the hospital.
She had her spleen removed the other day after it ruptured and is currently recovering at the overnight doggy hospital.  It's very possible the reason for the rupture is because she has cancer, so they ran tests to find out. If she does have cancer, we'll need to put her down to put her out of her misery after we spend the week at home soaking up all the joy she brings us.  I'm in shock. I can't imagine my life without our girl. I just love her so much! Please say a prayer for our pup (:




4. Our house has been crazy the past few weeks.
We've been doing lots of work and small repairs to the home, and lots of little repairs= lots of a big ole mess. Our Pottery Barn rug came today, though, and the painting is finished.  I'm stoked to show you the reveal next week.


My mom is going to kill me for posting this mess (;
5. Burnt Hair
Last week I was curling my hair and somehow the electricity was crazy messed up! Meaning, it was like 1000 times hotter than normal. It totally fried off a chunk of hair...right in the front. Adorable.


Have a wonderful Wednesday! What are YOU loving?
Love,
Photobucket

Week of Giveaways: Whippy Cake

Okay, ladies...special treat today. 
If you like cake and you like hair accessories, you're going to ADORE this giveaway! Whippy Cake is by far my favorite hair accessory shop, so you can believe me when I tell you I almost wet my pants when I read the email from Becki saying WC was going to sponsor a giveaway(: Every time I wear a glamour band, I always get compliments and asked where I bought my hair piece.  It's safe to say I'm obsessed with flowers, ruffles, buttons and sparkles, so it's no wonder I own close to 10 Whippy Cake headband appliques (:
You may have seen me wear them in my Fashion Friday posts.


If you're just learning about Whippy Cake, here's the deal...
You buy a headband with a velcro piece attached, and then go nuts and buy as many appliques as you wish! Each applique has velcro on it as well, so you can stick it right to the headband.  They also have little alligator clips so you can simply clip the flowery goodness into your pony tail or wherever you'd like.  They come in mini sizes, too! Perfect for your little ones.


Becki, the talent behind my favorite glamour bands, is just the sweetest and she's giving away a $30 gift card to one of my lucky readers.  That's enough for one applique and headband! You'll be stylin' in no time.









This is why they call them Tempting Accessories!
