birthday giveaway featuring amy, too faced & me.

maybe you missed the news, but it's my birthday. hip hip hooray! presents, balloons, and 30 candles on the cake... oh my! it's going to be great. but, i've always been taught that it is better to give than to receive. so, with that in mind, i've been throwing a month-long birthday celebration, here on the blog. each week i have hosted a giveaway featuring some of my favorite things, & i have loved every minute of it. this week's giveaway is a collection of some of my daily essentials & must-haves (click on the picture for a more detailed look)... a cute & sassy apron (one of my most requested patterns) in amy butler, of course (if you haven't noticed, i have a slight crush on her). my greatest & latest beauty find... a little something i like to call "lash extensions in a tube", lash injection by too faced cosmetics. a little reminder of my life's motto to "keep calm & carry on". & a bit of encouragement to wear around your neck... follow your dreams. crafted from sterling silver & gold (fill), so it's sure to match everything.

so here are the rules of the game:
* you have until midnight PST on tuesday, july 1st to enter.
* simply make a comment on this post to enter.
* anyone can enter (so tell your friends), although anonymous comments will be ignored unless accompanied by an email address.
* please, just one entry per person.
* the winner will be randomly picked & announced wednesday.
