Can you believe it? 6 months ago today I started this little blog. It blows my mind that anyone would want to read about a crazy girl from Texas, but here you are. Maybe it’s because my dogs are so cute. It’s gotta be the dogs. Anyway, I love y’all. Yeah, I took it there. L-O-V-E. Also, y’all. I know it may not be a word you use (or even hear) on a regular basis, but it encompasses ALL OF YOU PEOPLE, and therefore, I must use it. I love my readers. I feel like I have found a place, a momentum. I’d better be careful, lest I burst into Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me.” Then the dogs would start howling.
I wish I could buy everyone something nice, but I’m afraid I’m not that rich. So, let’s settle for a giveaway!
I have a serious problem when it comes to leopard print. And makeup. I love both, perhaps to an unhealthy degree. So when I saw this adorable makeup bag, I had to snatch one up. It has a shimmery snakeskin finish – I really need to tone it down with the whole wild animal thing. Also, it has a mirror inside. Basically it’s taking everything in my power not to keep it for myself.
Hey, remember when I mentioned I currently don’t have a camera? Only an iPhone and a MacBook Pro? That’s why these pictures suck. Send donations to the Lauren From Texas Camera Fund.
I got so many compliments on my gold & silver key necklaces from Forever 21, that when I saw this necklace, I knew it had to be part of the giveaway. It’s like a miniature version, with two silver keys and one gold one. It’s so precious I want to blow raspberries on it, if that were possible. Which it’s not.
What would a Lauren From Texas giveaway be without something Texan?! These sterling silver earrings are in the shape of little Lone Star states, and they have tiny gold stars on each of them. Yeah, iPhone pictures aren’t good at portraying detail. I can GUARANTEE you that they are cute though – so cute, in fact, that I bought two pairs. One for my contest and one, you know, for a “friend.”
Now that you’ve seen the goods, here’s how you win:
1. Comment here = 1 entry
2. Link to this post on your blog/tweet about it (and leave a link to the post/tweet in the comments) = 1 entry
3. Cross your fingers!
That’s it! Contest will end October 31st @ midnight (Texas time, which is also known as CST). I will announce the winners either Sunday or Monday.
Best of luck and TONS of love.
