december giveaway!

We’re getting ready to pack up and drive back home to Pennsylvania for the holidays, which means there’s time for one more giveaway before 2016 is over! Just like I did to mark the blog’s other little milestones, I’m celebrating the three-month mark by sharing a fun piece of jewelry from The Shine Project with one lucky follower!

I got involved as an ambassador for The Shine Project almost a year ago.  You can read the whole story here, but essentially, Shine supports inner-city American students on track to be the first in their family to go to college by teaching them to make jewelry and offering them employment and mentorship.  Student employees at the Shine centers have the opportunity to work hard to earn money for their higher education, so the purchase of Shine products supports their academic goals.  A portion of the profits also goes toward a scholarship fund that benefits the Shine kids.  I absolutely love this organization– and I’m obsessed with the jewelry, too!  It’s easy-to-wear, affordable, trendy, and supports a really awesome cause.

December’s giveaway is this seriously sweet arrow bracelet. It’s one of my very favorite Shine items, and I’m super jealous that one of you out there is going to be wearing it in just a few weeks!


All you have to do to enter to win this giveaway is to COMMENT on this post! As always, don’t forget to give your friends a shot at winning by sending them this link — the giveaways are a monthly thing, and the more, the merrier!

I’ll draw the winner randomly one week from today, Thursday 12/29. The winner will be announced right here on the blog.

Good luck, everyone! Safe travels and may you have the happiest of holiday celebrations with all of your loved ones. xo

    Hi Allie!

    I’m new to reading your blogs, but so far I’m really enjoying them! That cookie swap was a really creative idea, I’ve never thought about doing good exchanges instead of gift exchanges! Also, will the winner of the giveaway be announced on your blog or will they be emailed and notified too? Have a Merry Christmas!

    The story behind The Shine Project is truly inspiring. To see it now as it is shows where hard work can get you, along with sincerity and hope. Keep on doing the wonderful work you’re doing, Alli, I wish you all the very best ❤
