Taddle-Tell Necklace Giveaway!

I will finally be doing a giveaway! Yay! I have had a busy year and I now have a few giveaways lined up for the next few weeks to kick off the beginning of March! 

March has so many exciting things happening during the month that I wanted to start it off right. The bloom of Spring starts in March and we are all excited to bust out our Spring colors and trends. On top of doing a few giveaways for the next few weeks I will also be introducing the new Spring Trends for 2013 and also the looks we look forward to.


The J. Crew inspired Bubble Necklace's first hit stores last summer, and they have quickly stayed popular during the fall and now into spring 2013. The Bubble necklace is a great statement piece for Spring with its bright colors and bold trend. And I for one love it! You can see me wearing it on many of my posts!

A chunky necklace is a must-have accessory for spring–and, believe it or not, it’s going to be your go-to piece for the summer and fall too!

I have teamed up with the ladies at Taddle-Tell to provide you with the must-have trend for spring, the bright colored statement necklace

The first place winner will win TWO of the statement necklace's featured above of their choice! And the second place winner will win ONE of the statement necklace's along with this adorable Bubble-Gum Necklace for a little girl! (see below) How awesome is that??
If you have never checked out their site, make sure you do now because you are missing out.
They also sell adorable baby girl Tutu's!! And have been featured on Rue La La!
