Celebration Giveaway!!

We're only three weeks away from my 30th birthday. Since I'm celebrating my birthday over three weekends I figured I'd celebrate with you by doing a CELEBRATION GIVEAWAY!!

This isn't just A giveaway... this is THREE giveaways in one! (Do you see a theme going here?) So let's get started with what I'm giving away and will discuss more details at the end. 

Giveaway #1
The first is a book I've been reading that is just too good not to share! "How To Be a Woman" by Caitlin Moran, may make some nervous with reclaiming the word feminism, but the reason I love Caitlin is because she has a way of telling her story, telling my story, telling OUR story and helping make women realize that feminism isn't a word to be frightened of but to embrace and reclaim.

"Any action a woman engages in from a spirit of joy, and within a similarly safe and joyous environment, falls within the city-walls of feminism. A girl has a right to dance how she wants, when her favourite record comes on.” ― Caitlin Moran, How to Be a Woman

Jenny Lawson raves about her (I didn't notice review on the back of the book until I was getting ready for this giveaway)...so if you love the Bloggess you know that she gives Caitlin a thumb up!

Giveaway #2
For my readers who connect with me more on the getting dressed up and stepping out level. I have this beautiful cameo necklace on ribbon for you. I was given this necklace a few years ago and I've been meaning to put it on a longer ribbon (too short for me) and just never have. So instead of having it hang on  my wall for another year I thought I'd share it with my lovely followers.

Giveaway #3

Last but far from least is a block printed (original) reusable tote bag from fellow artist, blogger and my dear friend iz originals. It's perfect for books, taking to work, reusable grocery bag (that's the Portlander in me) and I do love supporting artists. 


She has a few prints with this same design on it and I got lucky enough to have iz love me enough to send me a print. Can't wait to put it up in my office.

    1. Every year I try to do something. Even if it's just in my same town - the zoo, a museum, something to mark the occasion.
