Six Year Anniversary Giveaway

Can you believe that it's actually been SIX years? It's crazy to think that I've kept this thing going for so long. I remember being so nervous to start this blog in the first place, and being especially nervous (dare I say embarrassed?) about anyone reading it. Six years later, I've carved out my own little space in the Internet, and it's hard to imagine my life without it. Though I've had my ups and down with this blog, I'm always grateful that I have this online diary of sorts as a document of my life these past six years. I'd be lying if I said that I haven't spent time rereading old pasts and comparing new photos to old to see how I've changed. It's funny to see me go from a bored college student to a thriving one, and from college grad with no direction to a confident and stable adult. I can only imagine what I'll feel like when I reread this post six years from now. 

I doubt many people are still reading this, but as with every blogging anniversary, I'm thanking those of you who have followed along with a huge giveaway. And as usual, I'm offering a variety of amazing prizes from independent female-run businesses. Here's what you'll win:

-one vintage floral Peter Pan collar from Magnus Clothing Co.
-one item of your choice from Holly Oddly
-$15 credit to Tiny Forester
-one pin of your choice from We Said Shop

A little about the shops participating:
Magnus Clothing Co.: I can't explain enough about how much I love Magnus. Luckily, I already wrote a blog post about the topic. Magnus Clothing Co. makes detachable collars, and for girls like me who think that every shirt or dress could use a Peter Pan collar, this brand is a dream come true. Her collars are feminine and adorable, and each one has a way of singlehandedly transforming an outfit. She's giving away this vintage floral collar, which I have and wear All. The. Time. It goes with everything, and I can't recommend it enough.

Holly Oddly: I could compliment any number of things about Holly's work - her unbelievable talent, and her killer use of color come to mind. However, one of the things I love best about her is her taste in pop culture. Her work pays tribute to some of my favorites including My Favorite Murder, The End of the F***ing World, Shawn of the Dead, Westworld, and more. She's offering one of item of your choice, and considering she makes a huge variety of items (like pins, keychains, stationary, and more), your possibilities are endless. She also owns and operates The Hidden Hand Society for a darker range of items!

Tiny Forester: Speaking of pop culture, Tiny Forester is another one with impeccable taste. I first met Chloe through blogging when she was running one herself, and I was constantly inspired by both her style and her creativity. I was so excited when I found out that she was running her own business, and extra excited when I saw how cute her pins are. Most of her designs are pop culture related, with designs spanning from some of my animated favorites like Steven Universe and Over the Garden Wall to Sailor Moon and anime and my personal picks: snacks. She's giving away $15 store credit, and you know you'll want to get everything. 

We Said Shop: Okay, okay, I'm a little biased on this one. We Said Shop is my pin shop that I run with my brother. While we admittedly haven't had much time to devote to it lately, it's still a fun hobby that we love doing. All of our pins have TV show quotes, and our first three designs have quotes from The Office, Parks and Rec, and Arrested Development (just in time for the new season!). We're giving away one pin of your choice.

All you have to do to enter is follow through the Rafflecopter widget below! The giveaway is open to US residents only and ends in one week. Good luck!
