Thank You! and WINNERS announced

I have to start with a huge, heart-bursting-over-with-love THANK YOU to everyone who entered my giveaway! It has been one helleva week! But really, this whole month has been a whirlwind of activity.

On instagram I have been hosting my #RebelliousSelfLove challenge, it has had a steady group of core participants as well as those who dabble, all are welcome! We only have a few more days, I am so impressed with everyone who has even in part, stuck with it! Thank You!

I addition to the contest here on the blog, I also held a smaller contest, just on instagram for a goodie bag, packed with lil things from me. This was not a sponsored prize, just stuff I think is cool and am excited to share with a follower. The winner was announced on IG earlier today, congratulations @yukonash! I cant wait to spoil you a bit!

Then there was my Fall collection that launched with Society+. This was my second collection with them { they used to be cool gal blue, I’m still getting used ot the new name, but I’m a big fan of it! } so with that, I was able to pick out more items. There is a ton of work that goes on behind the scenes of picking a collection, especially right before launch. Emails are flying back and forth, text messages, skype dates, packages arriving that need to get photographed immediately and then last minute interviews are thrown on top!

It’s ridiculously busy, but it’s a massive amount of fun as well!

So with all of that happening, as well as working on other projects for the future, still adjusting to my new website and the kinks that need to be ironed, I had this MASSIVE giveaway happening and so many of you joined me in celebrating 2 years of blogging.

The first year flew by so fast and I learned so much and was swept away in a love affair with the blogging community. My second year, I got serious about this blogging business, because I want it to actually BE my business. The learning curve has been steep, but It’s been one radical ride!

I have had the most amazing opportunities open up for me. And I have been blessed with friendships I would never imagined all thanks to this here blog!

So when I say ‘Thank You!’, I truly mean it from the very bottom of my heart. Without you reading and participating, I would have none of this.

I also need to thank the sponsors. With out them, I wouldn’t be able to host such an epic giveaway.

I have been such a fan of Chubby Cartwheels for the past two years, I admire Shawna as a person and a designer.  She may not know this, but she is a HUGE inspiration to me. When I first conjured up this idea, Shawna was one of the first people I wanted to ask to participate. Now she just needs to get that teal fabric back in stock so I can order my damn Boleyn dress! 😉

My relationship with SWAK designs has just been budding. They asked if I’d like to try some items back in August and I of course said yes. Being introduced to and being able to try out brands to share is one of my favourite things about blogging. I boldly asked if they would be interested in joining the giveaway and I think I literally squeed when I got the response ‘yes’ back from them.

Buxom Modern Plus Boutique is owned by Jenny and she is a DOLL. She’s kind and funny and used to be a hardcore gothy teenager, honestly, she’s after my heart! She sent this dress along with that awesome distressed sweater and I couldn’t think of a better way to show it off than in a celebratory post! This dress fits like a dream and it is so versatile. It’s stretchy, but a heavy enough fabric so it lays nicely, but not too heavy so there is a great bounce to the skirt! If you are lacking a little black dress in your wardrobe, I feel this is a perfect option to fill that gap!

Society+ has been such a positive force in my blogging career. We each took a gamble on each other in the early stages and it was blossomed into a beautiful partnership. I am honoured they let me do what I do. It’s a huge step in the direction of where I want to be with this blog. They have been supportive and trusting the whole way through!

Now, without further ado, the winners of the giveaway!

I am so happy to be able to give back to this community that has given me so much. I hope to be able to bring you more giveaways, more collections, more challenges and a better and better blog. I want to keep growing and learning and trying new things!
