12 Days of Giftsmas & the First Giveaway

Happy Giftsmas, y’all!! I am just bursting at the seems with excitement because I finally get to share with you what I’ve been working on for quite some time! Today is the kickoff of my gift-giving series called “12 Days of Giftsmas.” Throughout this whole blogging journey I have been reminded time and time again how blessed I am, how blessed my life is, because of you! Because of you I get to meet amazing women daily, engage with you guys, encourage others, and be encouraged by you! Because of you I get to do what I love – talk fashion and share my life with you. You guys bring a joy in my life that I don’t know if I could ever fully express with words.

So, to say thank you I am hosting Fleurdille’s “12 Days of Giftsmas.” Each day, for the next 12 days, I am partnering with a different brand to gift one of you something special. The brands I’m partnering with have been hand-picked by me. I am not being paid by any of these brands. Rather, each brand I have chosen to partner with is a brand I love, support, and use. These are brands I believe in and I know you do/will too!

So how does this whole thing work? It’s super simple! Check back here every day for the next 12 days to see which brand I am partnering with. Then, enter the giveaway – they will either be on my blog or on instagram, so pay attention! All of the giveaways will run through the 12th, and the winners to each of the giveaways will be announced on the 13th. If you want a short cut to all the giveaways, just click on the “12 DAYS OF GIFTSMAS” tab on the top bar of my blog and it will all be there.

NOTE: To make sure you don’t miss a single chance to win something fabulous, you can subscribe to my blog here. I promise I won’t spam you with tons of emails!

So, without further ado, let the gifting begin! The first brand I am teaming up with is Akola Project and we’re giving away the gorgeous necklace above. I’m not going to lie, I kind of wanted to keep this necklace to myself because it’s so perfect for the holidays. If you haven’t checked out the gorgeous jewelry from Akola Project, I highly suggest you do. This is their signature necklace, but each and every piece is stunning. What I love even more than the gorgeous jewelry they are continually producing, is the mission behind this brand. Through their jewelry, Akola Project provides work and training opportunities to poverty-stricken women in Uganda and Dallas. To read a bit more detail on Akola Project, check out my post here about how Akola is empowering women.

So how do you win today’s gift? Follow me on instagram and stay tuned! I’ll be posting the image above and a blurb on how to enter! Good luck, guys!
