With Christmas around the corner I was wondering how I could show all of you just how much I appreciate you taking the time to stop by my blog. Well, with a giveaway of course!!!!  Because who doesn't like free stuff?  Some of you have been following me for couple years, and some are newer followers, whatever the case you are all welcome to enter.  Today's giveaway is from one of my absolute favorite nail polish brands, Essie.  Ever since being introduced to  Mint Candy Apple I have been hooked on this brand.  They are always coming out with the next big thing in nail color and their new collection, Repstyle is no exception.  With the use of a small magnet on the top of this bottle your nail color is transformed from drab to fab!  I recently tried this and quickly learned that it is going to take a little practice but once I get the hang of it, I am excited to see what different looks I can come up with.

Giveaway Rules:  I have 6 bottles so there will be 6 chances to win.  All you have to do is be a follower of my blog, of course, and leave a comment below with the name of your favorite Essie color AND your email address.
Want an extra entry?  Follow me on instagram and you got it!  Just note that as well when you enter below.
The winners will be picked at random.  Only one bottle per person will be awarded.

Good Luck Everyone!!  The giveaway will close in exactly one week from today at midnight.

The Unexpected Statement.....

I love, love, love a great statement piece.  At first glance these boots appear to be a pair of those great tapestry/leather mix boots, but when you turn to walk away what greets you is a vertical pom pom detail that adds a fantastic unexpected detail.  I loved these boots when I first saw them on my trip to Chicago a few months back but didn't have room in my luggage to bring them home.  Well our paths crossed again and they were on sale, so I thought why not??

Style Tip:  I love unexpected details!  They are those little things that make your clothing special.  A pop of color for the lining of your conservative blazer, great detailed buttons, or pom poms down the back of your boots are all little nuggets that make an ordinary style extraordinary.

Let's Do Lunch...

Several months ago I made business cards for my blog, here, and absolutely loved the way they turned out.  At the time I didn't think it was necessary to have a separate holder, however after seeing the below case I may just have to reconsider.
