Giveaway Closed: Made by Maru


Winner will be announced Tuesday, May 29

I was out of commission yesterday, but I’m back in commission today with a sweet treat to make up for it. Readers meet Meridian. My new favorite necklace.

It’s become an extension of me. Seriously. It was designed and kindly gifted to me by San Francisco-based jewelry designer Stacy Haywood of Made by Maru and she is offering a piece to one of you! Trust me when I say, you will have a hard time choosing which piece to adorn yourself in. Take the following for example:

Really good huh?!

All you have to do to win some of this goodness is visit Made by Maru and favorite the piece you can’t imagine living another day of your life without. Then come back and tell me what you want. For extra entries (leave separate comments):

Vintage Christmas

We’ll be in Atlanta for the holidays this year — where my sister-in-law is getting married — so there won’t be much effort in decorating for Christmas at our house. We’ll probably pull out our old holiday decorations and keep it simple. But if we were to be spending time at home, I’d definitely go with a non-traditional, romantic, vintage vibe.
