100th Post Giveaway!

Oh yes, you read that right!  It is indeed my 100th post and I'm giving crap away!  I've been "publishing" stuff online for almost exactly 9 years, but previous to this it has always been more of a way to keep up with friends and family.  This was the first time I put myself out there for strangers.  I didn't even tell my friends & family about this blog for the longest time because I wasn't sure if I would stick with it.  It took me a little while to find my groove, but a little more than a year (and 100 posts)! later, I think I'm doing pretty well!

And I have to say, I've been pretty pleased with the response I've gotten from strangers!  I'm not going to lie and say I don't care about comments, because I do.  I love getting comments!  I love knowing that I'm putting this out there and people are reading it.  That said, I'm lucky that I haven't received any negative comments yet.  And as a thank you to all of you who read this, I wanted to have a giveaway!

First though, I have an outfit for you.

Gray v-neck tshirt - NextLevel via; Black vest - Mossimo, thrifted; Black pants - Gap; Black heels - Ettienne Aigner via Macy's; Scarf - vintage

A funny thing about this vest.  I used to have the EXACT same vest in a size large.  During the Great Purge of 2011, I got rid of it because it was too big.  A few weeks ago at a thrift store, I found this vest, in a size small.  I've always been a vesty sort of lady, so I was super excited to pick it up.  And, you know, the fact that I've gone from a large to a small is nothing to scoff at!

Okay, so!  Here's what I'm giving away!

Patina is a local store full of all kinds of fun stuff.  They have a little bit of everything: jewelry, fancy soaps, candles, kitchen things, stationary, home decor.  Like I said, a little bit of everything.  I picked up a set of notecards and a pair of earrings to give away!  

I'm not even lying when I say I wish I could win my own giveaway.  I'm a big fan of notecards.  I use them a lot at work, to let people know that I enjoyed working with them or just to say hi to someone I haven't seen in a while.  And the earrings are adorable!  I should have picked up a pair for myself when I was there last week, but maybe I'll do that next week.  I think they're simple, but fun.  You could wear them with anything!

Want to win?  Leave me a comment!  Tell me what you like about the blog or what you'd like to see more of.  Tell me a funny story.  Write me a haiku.  If you can be polite about, tell me what you don't like.  Anything!  I'll leave the giveaway open for a week and next Wednesday (12/7), I'll choose a winner at random!

As a sidenote, Patina isn't sponsoring this giveaway.  I paid for these items out of my own pocket because, hey, it's the season of giving and I'm thankful for everyone who reads this!
