Sunflower Stationary Giveaway ***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***

My good friend Dana is one of the craftiest people I know. She's always trying new things and taking part in fun DIY projects!  Earlier this year, Dana started making handmade mini envelopes and gift tags. What first started out as a hobby, turned into something a little more. In March, Dana decided to open an Etsy Shop, Sunflower Stationary, where she sells mini envelopes and gift tags. She has a variety of different prints listed in her shop and she comes out with seasonal items as well! 

Dana is one of the sweetest sellers on Etsy. She is very accommodating to her customers needs and provides excellent customer service. She packages all her orders very nicely and she always includes a handwritten "Thank You", which I think adds a nice personal touch. I always receive my orders from Sunflower Stationary in just under a week, usually somewhere between 3-5 days. As for the product itself, I'm always beyond happy with my orders! I am impressed with the quality of Dana's products and I know she puts a lot of time and effort into each and every one of her orders.

Shop for a Cause!

Hey Everyone, 

Do you all know what October is? Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Throughout the month, you'll be seeing a bunch of pink products when you go shopping because this is the month that companies like teaming up with BCA Foundations and they come out with a line of pink products that will help support the cause! 

I love shopping and even more so I love the color pink, so I am always sure to take advantage of this months special line of BCA products. I don't know about you, but sometimes after a day of shopping I tend to experience buyers remorse, but the good thing about October is that I find comfort in knowing that I can shop for all things pink (with a BCA ribbon), and a portion of the proceeds will go to a cause that I believe in. 

Here are a few of my favorite picks:

If you buy this Stella & Dot Limited Edition Mercer Wallet during the month of October, all net proceeds will be donated to the Noreen Fraser Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to raising women's cancer research funds and promoting early detection awareness. 

The Rosena Sammi Sitara Bracelet, traditionally worn to offer protection, is embellished with a sterling silver heart in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. 30 % of proceeds will go to the Breast Cancer Awareness Society


For the month of October, Tory Burch has partnered with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and created this exclusive style to support the cause. Tory Burch is donating 15% of the purchase from this bracelet to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Limited Edition Plumped Up Pink Chubby Stick

From September 15, 2012- November 15, 2012 $3.00 from the purchase of this product will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. 

If any of you are interested in donating, I will list a few BCA foundations below: 

I hope that you all have a wonderful month and be sure to shop for a cure!
