Epic Holiday Thanks Giveaway! {CLOSED}

Holiday Giveaway Alert! (ends 12/19) | The Stripe Blog

Saying “thank you” is important. Right? Everyone knows that. I don’t know if I say thank you enough for coming here and reading every day… for your comments, your “likes” on social media, and so on and so forth. Blogging can be very isolating at times and it is your sweet comments, emails, snaps, and so on and so forth that keep me inspired and make me love running this site so much.

Today, in the spirit of saying THANKS, I have teamed up with two of my close friends + fellow bloggers, Jess Kirby and Julia Dzafic on a giveaway that can only be described as… epicThe three of us pooled our own money to buy a $1,000 gift card to Nordstrom… and then reached out to a few of our favorite brand partners to secure additional, amazing prizes. The final prize is worth over $4,000. I’ve outlined everything you could win below, but all you have to do is enter your email address in the widget below! You can get additional entries by sharing the giveaway and/or following us + our brand partners on Instagram (it will prompt you to do so after entering your email address).

IMPORTANT: If you can’t see the widget below, you can enter by going to this page!


  • $1,000 to Nordstrom. Because, duh. They have everything.
  • $500 to vineyard vines. Because they have the coziest sweaters ever + beautiful holiday outfits.
  • $500 to BaubleBar. Because they have the greatest jewelry (and with $500 you can really go crazy!!!)
  • $500 to Design Darling. Because Mackenzie has an incredible eye and has curated the best stuff.
  • $500 to BareMinerals. Because their makeup is phenomenal and their new(ish) skincare line is so so good! Their face oil is my favorite.
  • $500 to Brahmin. Because everyone needs a classic handbag!
  • $250 to S.W. Basics. Because affordable, non-toxic beauty products that work are hard to come by!
  • A small framed print from Gray Malin. Because the man is seriously talented. I have five of his photos in my own apartment… they transport me back to my favorite places.

And because I don’t say it enough, thank you for everything! Even just reading. I truly appreciate it. 🙂

We’ll choose a winner next Monday, 12/19.

    Thanks for the opportunity to enter in your promotional give away. 🙂

  153. Marcy Sue Larkin says 12.16.16

    There isn’t a gift in this giveaway that does not meet a desire I have for this winter. Fashion and artwork are interrelated in so many ways. One expresses your living space and one expresses the skin that you live in. Favorite colors, patterns, designs… it all meshes. Plus as the year comes to an end, I always donate clothing that I have not worn often enough in the past year, either because the fit doesn’t attract my vision in the mirror or something is truly a one time wear piece. There are target demographics that could use these very gently used or nearly new ( sometimes completely new with the tags still on) pieces. Women returning to work, single moms that put their children first, even college students ready to pack for school. The possibility for charitable contributions leaves room in my closet for something new and more me. When I find those “me” pieces they will stay mine. I am not picky. I am choosy. This giveaway gives me the opportunity to live my choices from home to body.

  154. Margaret Friewer says 12.16.16

    What a great giveaway. Certainly would make for a Merry Christmas
