It's our 2nd blog-iversary!
If you all lived nearby, we'd throw a big party and everyone could have a pretty cupcake!
But, er, since you don't, we'll just celebrate with a giveaway instead. (We love a good giveaway, don't you?)
What will one lucky reader win? How about...
A Jason Wu for Target Straw Clutch?
What, not enough?
Okay, well, what if there's a $50 gift card to your choice of three stores - Anthropologie, J. Crew, or Nordstrom - included inside?
We know. But it gets better. Four other readers will win necklaces and/or bracelets from Ember Arts, a socially-conscious company that partners with Ugandan craftswomen, helping them to design and sell jewelry made of recycled paper beads for fair trade prices, while also providing them with additional training in money and business management.

We want to help you protect your contact information. When we draw the name and number of the winner, we'll post it on our blog, along with directions for that winner to contact us. If for some reason, the winner doesn't get in touch with us within 48 hours, we'll redraw, and announce a new winner, etc.
Good luck to everyone!
