I found out about Karen Karch a while back and have since become a huge fan of her jewelry.  Luckily, the feelings were mutual and she custom-made me the gorgeous ring you see below.  Isn’t it insane?

Ring 2Ring

Well, Karen wanted you all to have a chance at owning a piece of her jewelry as well, so she’s giving away her Legend Dog Tag Necklace as seen on Shailene Woodley on the Women’s Health cover.  This necklace is worth over $300, but saying you’re wearing the same necklace as a celebrity is worth even more, right?

I came across the work of Katie Waltman after stumbling across this hoop and chain bracelet of hers.  An online search lead me to her beautiful site where I found a group of other things I loved just as much. I’ve been living in this hammered chevron necklace as of late.  After spending a few weeks in her designs, and staring at the gorgeous packaging in the office, I called up the studio and begged them to do a giveaway because I know our readers will go head over heels for her designs. And boy did they deliver.

Here is the best part- Katie let me choose which piece to giveaway to you!!! Drumroll please…..
I chose the gold Hamsa Hand for you. I get a lot of tweets and comments on insta about my hamsa and evil eye jewelry. The hand symbolizes protection. After a wild year of travel, work, and new pressures I became an avid wearer of jewelry to reflect personal triumphs. I always have some sort of personal piece on my body- just for myself. I own this specific necklace; it’s mid-length and a perfect size so you can wear it with everything.

Wait–it gets better.  Katie Waltman wanted to get in on the fun and give away MORE.

A second person will win a package $240 in value that includes some of Katie’s favorites:

Moonstone cluster drop earrings
Antica Farmacista Acqua Room Spray
How to enter you ask?  Good question.
Follow @katiewaltman and @dallasshaw on Instagram then comment right below on this blog post with your Instagram handle and email address (don’t forget the email, that’s how we tell you that you’ve won!).  You have one week to enter so, go go go!
Good luck, and as always thank you for reading the blog.
pssst.  the ladies at Katie Waltman are so great that win or lose our giveaways they’re giving our readers 20% OFF on their website.  So, find your jewels and make sure to enter DALLAS20 before checkout.

Another great giveaway happening today on the blog; MyChelle Dermaceuticals!  And what’s even better is, they’re giving away all 4 of the products you see above.  Now I know some of you may be young, but let me tell you a secret–you are never too young to start taking care of your skin.

How great are MyChelle products?  Glad you asked.

First off, all products are cruelty-free, gluten-free, vegan friendly, which is just awesome. But let’s get into what you get if you WIN:

The Wrinkle Spot Treatment has a nice scent and rollerball applicator and don’t call me crazy but I SWEAR after one coat my wrinkle disappeared. The Peptide + Anti-Wrinkle Serum works in 3 ways: firms, hydrates, and smooths.  Advanced Argan Oil is literally a head-to-toe product, as it can be added to your favorite facial or body moisturizers and hair conditioners.  I’m not 100% sure what the Remarkable Retinal Serum can’t do–repair sun damage and age spots, reduces fine lines and redness, prevents breakouts–it’s a miracle!!

So now that you’re desperate to own these products, here’s how to enter:

Like MyChelle Dermaceuticals on Facebook and like my new FB page then comment below with your Facebook name & email address.

Simple and easy.
