Happy Birthday to Me – A Present for You Giveaway!

Since it is my birthday, I want to spread the birthday love. Birthdays are a special day for presents, so I have decided to host my first giveaway in honor of my birthday. (Plus it is a nice way to celebrate everyone reading my blog!) 

What will you get if you win my 2009 Birthday Giveaway? Gifts from some of my favorite brands!

First – A fall must-have accessory, brooches are a great way to jazz up a jacket to make it ready for date night. This blue-jeweled brooch from Ann Taylor Loft has multiple blue-toned glass stones. (Sorry the picture is so lousy; I took it in a hurry on my way out the door to Disney.)


Second – Have you ever been somewhere and started mentally creating a to-do list only to forget everything on the list by the time a pen and paper became handy? Not any more. This handy purse-sized notepad comes complete with a mini pen for jotting down quick notes. Because it comes in a little padfolio, your notes won’t wind up in a crumple at the bottom of your purse either! This note set is made by Kenneth Cole Reaction and is a nice red “leather” that you can easily find in your purse!!!


Third – There are so many uses for my list gift I am not sure what to call it! You could use it as a cosmetic case for travel, a little bag in your purse (or diaper bag), a purse for a child, a crayon case, a wristlet, a tampon holder (J) and more!!! But I think the quote on it is the best part, “Born Free, Now I am Expensive!” Who can’t use another little bag for their stuff!

Born Free, Now I am Expensive

Are you excited? I hope so!

So, here is how it will work. To enter my Birthday Giveaway, leave a comment below telling me your favorite thing about my blog (after all it is my birthday!). If this is your first time to my blog, you can just tell me how you found my blog.

If you would like extra entries to my giveaway, you can do any or all of the items below (the one above is mandatory for your 1st entry). For each item you do, please leave an additional comment letting me know you completed the item. At the end of the giveaway, I will pick a random number from the number of comments below, so you must leave comments below for each entry to count.
