Giveaway Time!

Hello! So, a few weeks ago I reached 200 followers (Hooray!) and I wanted to do a giveaway as a thank you! This giveaway has been a bit delayed mainly because I'm too picky and have been having trouble finding something perfect to send to one of you! When I was out shopping, I saw this at H&M and thought, "Man, That's PERFECT!"...



Hooray! You can win this fun floral purse! I thought it would be perfect for summer time activities like going to the beach, or picnicing, or spelunking, or cake baking, or road tripping, or dance parties (Or whatever you want, really)!

To Win:
1. Follow my blog via Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin'
2. Leave me a comment telling me how you follow, your email address, and what you would carry around in this bag if you win it!

The giveaway will close this Saturday night (April 30) and I should have the winner up by Sunday's post! Good luck!

Also, I figured I would include a few little photos from yesterday's outfit, to make this a complete post, so..





(Dress: Salvation Army, Belt: Delia's, Shoes: Steve Madden)
