What 37 Things I'm Obsessed With....AND a Stella and Dot Giveaway!

Linking up today for my AWESOME giveaway with YOLO Monday! and Tell Me About it Tuesday!

Okay, so I'm not going to do the traditional "What 3 Things I'm Obsessed With" post today, because I just can't narrow it down.
I'm like one of those little kids that gets distracted by everything shiny they see.
I'm guessing you ladies might want to see some shiny stuff too.
Yes?
Well, okay.
Lucky for you, I have a friend that recently became a Stella and Dot stylist.
Meet Jenny!  Isn't she cute?  :)
Scratch that.
Isn't she gorgeous?
She is actually one of those girls that is a rare combination of cute AND gorgeous.
It's sickening really.
Too bad she's also super nice,
or we could all talk bad about her super shiny hair and her pretty white teeth
 and her flawless glowing skin.
;)

Well, Jenny wondered if you guys might be up for a
Stella and Dot giveaway?!?
I told her I wasn't sure.
JK!
I was all...."HECK YA!  I'm IN!"
And then she texted me a picture of these GORGEOUS earrings (a $50 value!) that she had chosen for the giveaway.
And then I was all....Wait.....I want those for myself.
But, I guess I'll still do the giveaway.
:)
I mean, if they are good enough for George Clooney's girl, they are good enough for me!  :)

I got mixed reviews on the ease of using Rafflectopter,
so I thought we would go back to just leaving a comment.
Yep, we're gonna kick it old school.

*******************************************************
HOW TO ENTER THE CONTEST:
First of all, if you are leaving a comment registered as "Anonymous", make sure you leave your first and last name and/or an e-mail address!  I will need to know how to contact you!
*For 1 entry, simply leave a comment saying anything you want!
*You get a 2nd entry if you "like" the facebook page here,
and then leave a comment saying "I'm a facebook fan."
*You get a 3rd entry if you are a follower of the blog
(go to "join this site" on the bottom right hand corner if you haven't already),
and then leave a comment saying "I'm a follower".
*You get a 4th entry if you order $100 worth of merchandise from Stella and Dot
and leave a comment saying so!
Is that as clear as mud?
Some of you might only leave 1 comment, which is fine! 
But if you want to increase your chances, please do so.
The more comments you have, the better your chances of winning! 
(Please don't leave 1 comment saying you've done everything.  I will be entering the numbers into a computer program for a random # to be chosen, so you won't get all the necessary credit if you just leave 1 comment.)
THIS JUST IN...
after receiving a couple of requests via facebook and twitter.....
I've decided to add 2 new ways to get extra entries:
*You can get 1 extra entry if you follow me on Twitter (@simsslp) and  tweet about the giveaway.
*You get another extra entry if you share my link from Friday on facebook. (Just click "share".)
********************************************************

Sadly, only 1 lucky lady will win the contest.
Even sadder, I know with 100% certainty that it won't be me. Ha! :)
So I of course will be placing an order.  I'm getting those earring fo sho!
Plus.....I don't want to freak anybody out or start a riot or anything...
but like I mentioned yesterday,
do you know it's now only 59 days until Christmas?!?
 It's okay...just breathe...and get a jump start on your Christmas shopping with me RIGHT NOW!
I LOVE the idea of knocking out Christmas gifts for some of the ladies in my life.
 (If you are my mom, sister, MIL, or SIL, please disregard that last statement.)
 Jenny and I thought some of you might like that idea too,
so we decided to open up an online catalog party so you can get in on the shopping fun with me!

!!!A VIRTUAL CATALOG PARTY!!!
What?
Yes, ma'm!!!!!
Between now and next Wednesday (October 31st),
you can place a Stella and Dot order by going HERE.
We have set up a virtual trunk show with me as your hostess!  FUN!
Shipping is only $5.95 (no matter how much you order), and your order will ship directly to you and arrive within 3-5 days (as long as your stuff isn't on backorder).
The jewelry is unique, beautiful, incredibly well made, and worth every penny.
And....let's just be real here.....
Stella and Dot is cool. :)

I thought you guys might want to see some of their stuff (not just displayed in a catalog), so I played dress up with lots of the Stella and Dot pretties that Jenny owns....wanna see?

Olivia Bib Necklace
LOVE the orange and gold!
This orange would look so good with navy, grey, black, pink, and the list goes on.
Bahari Necklace
This navy and gold combo is awesome!
(and Katherine Heigl has been photographed wearing it!)

Starstruck Ring (Hello Gorgeous!...so sparkly and blingy in real life)
and the Sparkly Bardot Spiral Bangle
Stackable Deco Rings (SO sweet and dainty...and they look real!  I even tried two of them on with my real engagement ring, and they looked great!)
and the Tribute Bracelet (pretty with a little bit of sparkle - seen in Elle magazine!)
Chelsea Necklace
Love the look of this one!
Serenity Necklace
This is a statement necklace if I've ever seen one!
Ginger Layering Necklace
You know how I love layering necklaces right now!
 
Triology Ring and Bardot Spiral Bangle in Gold
Sidewinder Ring (totally hip) and Renegade Cluster Bracelet
Courage, Hope (Noreen Fraser piece, seen in US Weekly), and Elizabeth Bracelets
Cora Chandeleir Earrings and Gitane Tassel Necklace (can be worn 3 ways)
Goddess Teardrop Earrings (so light, a great size, and a little tiny bit of bling at the top)
Soiree Studs and Revival Tassel Necklace (as seen in In Style!)


Bryant Park Scarf
Clover Single Wrap Leather Bracelet (Oh so hip!) and the Moondance Stretch Bracelet

3- Strand Luna Wrap Bracelet (this bracelet is STUNNING on!)

Glint Flower CZ Necklace (Two of my girlfriends already bought 3 of these.  It is SO pretty and sparkly in person.  It's one of those necklaces that you would just keep on and wear every day if you wanted to.  Great for yourself or as a gift, and it's under $40!)
Soar Necklace and  Demi Layering Necklace
On the Fringe Silver Necklace (super casual and cool leather necklace with silver accents)

I had trouble taking good pics of any of the earrings,
 so I thought I would just showcase some of them here.
Charlize Teardrop Earrings (Who doesn't love turquoise?)
Valentina Chandeleir Earrings (A great pair of everyday earrings in gold.)
Talia Teardrop Earrings (A great silver pair for every day wear.)
Capri Chandeleir Earrings (The coral is great, but they come in turquoise too!)

And I also wanted to highlight 3 of my absolute favorite things that I think are GREAT deals and would make amazing gifts!
Who in the world wouldn't want this?  It could be totally casual with a button up shirt, or could go perfectly with a little black dress!  I want this for myself,
but I would also be really proud to give this as a gift.
These are PERFECT earrings.  
They are silver and gold with just a tiny bit of bling, and I think they would look GREAT with anything! Anything.
I'm totally getting these.
Bethenny Frankel has been seen wearing this. I love the chunkiness of it.  I love that it is gold and silver. I love the snakeskin look of it.  LOVE.





 Isn't their stuff RIDICULOUS?
And you won't believe how many choices there are online!
(I probably only showed you like 10% of the catalog.)
There are lots and lots of LOVELY things that are under $50,
and there is also plenty to choose from that is extra special and over $50.
 I've made a conscious decision this year that instead of giving lots of "okay" gifts for Christmas to one person, I prefer to give 1 nice gift.
It makes my Christmas shopping SOOOOOO much easier, it makes the wrapping a breeze, plus I feel like the recipient appreciates it more.
 I really like the idea of giving 1 special something that I am really proud of,
and that they will wear constantly!
And look at the boxes they come in!
The packages alone are fabulous!  I love the patterns!

Two more things that you can take advantage of this month with Stella and Dot:
1)  If you click HERE you can SHOP FOR A CAUSE by shopping the breast cancer boutique.
If you buy one of the 5 featured items, 100% of the proceeds go to
Noreen Fraser Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to women's
cancer research and awareness.
Awesome!

2) And check out this October promotion.

You spend $50, and you can get these 4 additional items at 50% off!
(Just to be clear, you spend $50 once.....and then you can get all 4 of these at 50% off!)
I MEAN!  PEOPLE!
 That's a lot of gifts (or a lot of extra pretty for yourself)!

And as a reader reminded me via a facebook conversation we were having about this virtual trunk show, just think of all the time and gas you are going to save doing a little online shopping!
Yep, that is some girl math at it's best.  Thanks Casey!

So, if you would like to place an order , just click HERE
COME ON....KNOCK A COUPLE OF PRESENTS OFF YOUR LIST,
and then REWARD YOURSELF for being so flipping on the ball
and pick up a little something for yourself too!
(Does your mind work like that also?!?) 

And don't forget to register for the contest!
THE CONTEST WILL CLOSE at 10:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 31st, and
I will announce the winner next Thursday!

The Catalog party will also close on October 31st at 10:00.
(We want to make sure you can take advantage of the two October specials.)
                 .
So, get to shopping with me, and start feeling a little Falalalalala a little early.
:)
Pin It!
