The Birthday Celebration Continues - Giveaway #2

A huge thank you to everyone for helping kick start my 25th Birthday Bonanza! I've had a great time celebrating and hope you have as well! If you were not a winner the first time around, then here is your second chance!

I'm super excited about this week's giveaway because I'm including all the things I think a *preppy and fabulous* lady needs!

First up, I have discovered a website called Preppy Monogrammed Gifts and they have so many wonderful items! One of my personal favorites are the customized cosmetic bags!

Style #1

Like this...
(comes in chocolate, hot pink, black, lime green, white, light pink with choice of thread color, font and accenting ribbon)

Style #2

Or this...

And this is cute too!
(there is also a choice of palm tree, lobster, starfish, and crab - pictured above)

The winner will have their choice of cosmetic bag, which will be filled with a number of surprises - some of my very favorite things. I promise they won't disappoint!

Next, I wanted to include a unique piece of jewelry. I was going to do the typical silver or pearl jewelry, but then I figured most of us already have that in our jewelry box! I finally found what I was looking for and I think it's perfect because it's versatile, great for summer, AND it will include the winner's monogram! What's more preppy than that??!?

Oval shell pendant on a double strand of hand-strung beads
(choice of 2 different colors for the beads: pink/black, fuchsia/orange, lime/aqua, black/white, aqua/brown, fuchsia/lime, brown/pink)

And last but not least, the winner will receive her choice of Manners, Style OR Occasions by Ms. Kate Spade. These books need no introduction and are an essential element for any bookshelf.

Enter by Friday, April 10 at 8 pm PST to have a chance of winning!

Here's how to enter:

1. Look at the cosmetic bags offered on the Preppy Monogrammed Gifts website. Come back and let me know if you would choose:

the classic monogrammed cosmetic bag with accenting ribbon and monogram (Style #1 above)
one of the cosmetic bags with a preppy graphic and monogram (Style #2 above)

Simply state that you would choose Style #1 or if you choose Style #2, let me know which preppy image you like the best!
This is good for one entry.

2. Be a follower or become a follower for 2 additional entries.

3. Add this giveaway link to your sidebar or blog about it for 3 additional entries.

4. Add my button or let me know you already have my button on your blog for 4 additional entries.

There is a possibility of 10 entries per person. You don't have to do all of these, but please let me know in ONE comment what you have done (I'll figure out the number of entries you're eligible for)!

Good luck!
