Welcome to my first ever monthly giveaway! I’ve got a fabulous line-up for you. The September Giveaway includes all of the following:


1. A 13 piece ULTA goodie bag with everything seen here in your choice of “The Natural Wonder” or “The True Blue” collection:


2. Ribbon Flower Clips (tutorial coming soon!) made by moi. You could pop these beauties in your hair or on a belt, bag, sweater, or…as I did here…a pair of cute heels:


3. A full-sized bottle of ULTA’s Wild Night, the perfect shade of midnight blue with just the right amount of shimmer.


4. My feature item this month is a fabuloso clutch from Melissa of SoChick! Handbags and Embroidery!


The Paisley Green clutch is 100% cotton and is fully interlined for a professional finish. It measures 9in L x 4.5in H, has two Card Pockets inside, and holds a lot for its size (cell, keys, cards and cash, lipgloss, etc.). Retail: $18

Isn’t she gorgeous?!

5. A custom art print from my Jones Design Company stash (not a sponsor):

  1. I think the nail polish is my favorite… but barely! I would love something new and different for my nails but am not brave enough to take the plunge and make the purchase!

  2. I am a follower (love your blogs!) Molly B at the byrdhouse
    I would love to win this. . .love the clutch, the JDC print, and most of all, the flower clips, ’cause you made them! : 0

  3. I think my favorite item is the Ribbon Flower Clips. I love that you can add them to shoes for a totally different look!

  4. I am crazy about the flower clips! I need them on every pair of shoes I own! I am thinking specifically of a pair of turquoise peep-toe espadrille wedges (Payless clearance) that are stashed under the bed waiting for the right outfit. My favorite pair of wool, black-and-white houndstooth print, round-toed pumps (Ross clearance) have roses on the toes and I get so many compliments on them… if only the weather would get cool so I can wear them again!

  5. So many great things packed in this giveaway, but I really LOVE the art print. So pretty, and definitely a great message!

  6. I “liked” your blog on FB as Natalia Pari McNamara, and can’t understand why I hadn’t already since I read your blog every morning.

  7. I love the satchel bag!!! It would fit perfectly in my teacher bag for days when I am substitute teaching and I wouldn’t have to carry a purse!!!

  8. Opps! Didnt mean to hit send!

    I’m following you! And I love the clutch. Such a beautiful pattern!


  9. it’s so hard to chose a favorite! i am crazy about nail polish these days…. but a custom print? my oh my!

  10. I am a follower. I was going to say I liked the make up the most, but that is just because I am almost out of everything, but I really like the paisley clutch the best.

  11. Oooo it’s a tie between the make up bag and the cute green bag. I’m a bag addict can you tell?! I follow you now too! 🙂

  12. I’m follow you. You’re DIY ottoman finally prompted me to get off my butt and make mine. Anyway, I love the clutch. It’s so cheery! I’ll mention it on my new blog, Breezy Thursday.

  13. I sooo love every one of the giveaways! If i had to choose one that would benefit the whole family and just not myself it would be the sign from Jones Design! If were just for ME, however it would be a clutch from SoChick! thanks for the opportunity!

I love hearing from you guys!
