GIVEAWAY: A 1,000 FASHIONABLE FRIENDS CELEBRATION AND THANK YOU


Happy Monday
, Fashionable Friends!

I recently reached 1,000 Fashionable Friends, which I owe all to you!!!

I never would have imagined that the evening I did a search for online journals, came across a blog site named Blogspot, and signed up, that it would turn into what this blog is today!

I didn't know anything about blogging when I began, I'm not even sure I knew what the word blog meant! I only tried it because I enjoyed writing, sharing, creativity and fashion, but mostly putting together looks that didn't cost a lot. Mostly because I noticed that I always gained the most compliments on affordable items.

I honestly never expected anyone to follow along, or was that why I began. I simply ended up jumping on the blogging train for myself when it was just beginning, and am so glad I too that leap that night.

I still remember one of my first followers, and not believing that someone was interested in what I posted! Her name was Anna, Anna Saccone from Ireland, and since that day, she and I have become friends, though we have not yet met in person.

She has been so supportive since day one, and I could not be more thrilled with all of her success and just how far her journey has taken her! In that time, she moved, got engaged, married, her dogs had puppies and she is now pregnant with a little girl! As well as created quite a successful beauty channel TheStyleDiet and daily blog channel TheSacconeJolys with her witty, kind, happy and full of personality husband Jonathan aka Jofus on YouTube! :)

Needless to say, this blog has become a true passion of mine, and I have met so many people from around the world in blogland, as I refer to it, whom I now consider friends! All of your support has been nothing short of positive, encouraging and straight up kind and inspiring!

Therefore, I wanted to do something for all of you to say, "Thank You!!!"

So, I went out and purchased a variety of things that I myself would enjoy or do enjoy currently, but instead of keeping these for myself, I'm giving all of you an opportunity to win them in this giveaway! Yay! :)

a Rafflecopter giveaway

This giveaway is open to everyone and will be open for 2 weeks until, Monday, June 18th! I will pick a winner on June 19th, and notify the winner via e-mail and then post it here on this post!

Good luck to everyone entering and thank you so, so much!!!

You really made my day, thank you so much! <3 I'm so flattered & happy to have you as a friend :) xoxo

  31. Firstly congrats! And really awesome giveaway!!
    Love the bag more than anything. That emerald green bag is just so perfect that it could be carried with a plain black or white dress and add just the perfect pop of color to the outfit..
    And then there's mix and match.. My favorite color is purple and I tend to wear a lot of it, and I've always admired the green - purple combination.. Its just so pretty and eye catching.. SO definitely this bag will be my 'everyday' sort of work bag.. Stylish and versatile just the way I like it!
    The other goodies are so cute too.. I love Victoria's Secret, unfortunately we don't have an outlet here in India, so the beauty products I get here are either heavily priced or fake!!
    Anyways congrats again and best of luck!!
