january giveaway!

Guess what, friends? I have some good news for you. It’s GIVEAWAY DAY! Picture me dancing around in my desk chair to Joy to the World by Three Dog Night (which, for some reason, has been my play-on-loop choice for the last few days). Time to spread a little Tuesday happiness!

This month, I’m back with a prize from The Shine Project, which makes the giveaway that much more fun for me. Doesn’t everyone need a little extra special bling when they’re feeling the winter slump (we have some weirdly warm weather here in New York this week, but I have a feeling it will take a turn for cold any day now)? Answer: yes. Everyone needs a little extra special bling… always.

The extra special bling from Shine is that much better because of what it represents. If you’re new to the blog (nice to meet you!), let me catch you up, because this is one of my favorite organizations. I got involved as an ambassador for Shine last spring. 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.

Pretty awesome, right?

This month, I’m giving a gold infinity charm bracelet from The Shine Project to one lucky winner!

My favorite thing about this bracelet is how sweet and delicate it is. The charm isn’t going to get caught up in your jacket or tangled up while you’re digging through your bag (been there!), but it’s enough of a statement to catch your eye if you’re looking for it : ) I’m a big bracelet girl, and I think you’re going to love this one.


All you have to do to enter to win this bracelet is comment on THIS post!

Feeling extra generous? Send this link to a friend to give them a chance at winning, too. You’ll have another chance to win a prize next month, so you might as well spread the love!

I’ll draw the winner randomly one week from today, Tuesday 1/30. The winner will be announced right here on the blog. Good luck!

(Unfortunately, you’re not eligible to win this contest if you live outside of North America, due to shipping concerns. I’m sorry about that!)

  1. Amazing organization! Education really changes a persons life!

    P.S. Even though I’m not currently in the USA, I have an address still there! 🙂

  2. That is an amazing cause. I was the first in my family to graduate with a Master’s degree. This post made me smile.

  3. Hi! I’m entering but mainly commenting to say HI and I love your blog and especially loved your last post. My love for creative writing and even just journaling about life has dwindled since I’ve been in a job I don’t like… and I really want to stop making excuses, and make time for it! Help hold me accountable 😛 One of the steps is telling people, right!? Love, childhood friend Kat
