GIVEAWAY: Cushe Footwear


I’m excited to share a new giveaway with you guys this month! I was contacted by the super sweet folks at Cushe Footwear about reviewing a pair of their shoes or sandals and, if I liked them, giving a pair to one of my readers. When I first went to their site, I was a little wary. Most of their styles are pretty sporty. They’re certainly cute and practical, but not necessarily my thing. Then I saw these Re:Vive flats!



I’m not a super active person nowadays, but I enjoy a pretty regular bike ride, long walk, or zumba class. I always feel silly in these situations because I’m ridiculous and don’t own a real pair of tennis shoes. I’m cheap! And they’re ugly. That’s why I chose these flats from Cushe! They’re a great compromise for me. They’re cute, simple flats that I would wear with most skirts and casual dresses, but they’re waayyy more practical and comfortable for lots of walking, riding my bike, etc.


Hahaha, yes, this is my idea of active wear. ;)

In all seriousness, I really do adore these shoes. They appear to be made very well and have great details in fabric texture, colors, and prints. The inner lining is even a cute blue pattern! They have support so I’m not walking completely flat-footed and the back heel is stretchy, so they don’t slip off the back of my feet as I’m walking.

My communications with their customer service went fabulously, too! My shoes were delivered super fast and all my questions were answered quickly and very nicely.

This giveaway is for one pair of shoes or sandals from Cushe–any pair you like! To enter, just like Cushe on Facebook! For bonus entries, follow Cushe on Pinterest and/or leave a comment letting me know which pair you’d pick if you won! They have quite the range from sandals to flats to sportier active wear shoes, so you have a lot to choose from! Unfortunately, this giveaway is limited to US residents only. The winner will be randomly chosen and notified next Thursday, June 6.

GIVEAWAY: Sweet Spot Bags [Winner!]


Just popping in to thank everyone for entering my giveaway with Sweet Spot Bags! I randomly picked Amanda A. as the winner and have notified her.

Malin is a great handmade seller and really generous to offer this giveaway. If anyone’s looking for a sweet graduation present or way to fondly remember a moment in your life, I think Sweet Spot Bags is a really cute momento to have! xo

OOTD / GIVEAWAY: Sweet Spot Bags








Cardigan: Thrifted | Floral Skater Dress: UO | Scarf: Jason Wu for Target | Over-the-knee Socks: Target | Flats: Old Navy

I’m excited to share another lovely little giveaway with you guys today! Malin, the sweet lady behind Sweet Spot Bags, contacted me about the cool concept behind her handmade business and offered to send me one and offer one to a lucky reader! You may have seen her cute pouches on other blogs, so here’s another chance to snag one for yourself!

Here’s how Malin describes Sweet Spot Bags:

“Sweet Spot bags are little pouches that are printed by the sun to display the longitude and latitude of specific spots in the world. We sell spots such as Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Woodstock, Paris  and many more. We also print custom bags for people who have a specific location in the world and want to remember it throughout their day.”

The spot commemorated on my bag is my current address! My first apartment in St. Louis after college, the first place Andrew and I moved into together, and where we currently live quite happily. :) It’s definitely a sweet little reminder I love carrying in my larger purse!

To enter, all you have to do is like Sweet Spot Bags on Facebook here! For bonus entries, leave a comment letting us know what spot in the world you would choose to commemorate on your bag, and/or tweet about the giveaway!

Unfortunately, this one is only open to US entries. I’ll pick the winner next Thursday, April 25!

GIVEAWAY: Creature Type Illustration Collection [Winner!]


Hi everyone! Just wanted to pop in this evening to announce the winner of my illustration goodies giveaway! I have to say, I’m pretty sad to see it end because you guys all came up with such fantastic conversation heart ideas! I loved checking my phone for all the hilarious and cute new comments. :’)


Congrats to Meg of Bowties Are Cool! She wins the little collection of goodies!

Because you were all so sweet and lovely, I’ve also picked three runner-ups! Each of the following people will win an 8 x 10″ print of their choice! Meg was notified this morning that she won the grand prize, but I’m getting ready to email the runner-ups now, so if some of you are speedy, you may see this first!

#1 Libby
#2 Jeanne
#3 Lisa

Hooray! Thanks so much to everyone for entering and WELCOME to any and all new readers that started following me over the course of the giveaway! I adore you all. Also, I’m planning a big Etsy shop update this weekend and will be replenishing my ring making supplies next week, so if you might like to buy your very own conversation heart ring, you’ll be able to very soon! xo

GIVEAWAY: Creature Type Illustration Collection



Ta-da! Here is my promised, super awesome mega giveaway! One winner, selected at random, will win the following super cool shit I made:

- 3 8×10″ prints
- 4 5×7″ postcards
- 1 hand-painted, wood cameo brooch
- 1 hand-painted, wood donut brooch
- 2 hand-painted, wood conversation heart rings

I’m even going to pick a few random runner-ups for print and postcard prizes! I just want to spread the love, y’all. And the craft show leftovers. ;)

All you need to do to enter is leave a comment and tell me what your ultimate perfect favorite conversation heart would say! Haha, does that make sense? Mine would probably say something stupidly crude or sassy, like “S MY D” or just “HAY GURL” or something. I’ve been rocking the “OMG” one pretty proudly for the past few days though and I’m feeling pretty good about it.

And yes, I promise donut brooches/rings and conversation heart rings will be on my Etsy ASAP! I need to replenish my inventory!

This giveaway ends at midnight on Wednesday, March 20th! I’ll email the winner(s) and post them on Thursday the 21st.
