#Showyourheart… & Two big announcements


Today I have a few really exciting announcements to share with you.

First of all, today is Stripes & Sequins 3rd Birthday!  It’s been quite an adventure so far; and I’m so incredibly grateful for each and every one of you who comes here and reads my ramblings every day.   Actually, grateful isn’t a big enough word… there are no words.  Thank you.

Secondly, I am ecstatic to be collaborating with Diet Coke for the next few weeks, in support of womens’ heart health initiatives.

And third, we have an exciting contest to share with you!  (The pretty hearts above mean more than just my undying love for you guys.)   All you have to do is (from today 1/22 through 1/26) upload a heart-inspired picture on Twitter/Instagram, using the hashtag  #ShowYourHeart.  You will instantly be entered to win a trip to the 2013 Red Dress CollectionSM Fashion Show in NYC… a celeb-studded fete, kicking off fashion week!  I’ll be there… along with several other bloggers and some pretty major celebs (just can’t tell you who, just yet…)  Five lucky winners will be chosen… one per day.  To top things off… one grand prize winner will receive a shopping spree in NYC accompanied by a stylist.  Amazing, right?  I know.

Better yet, this initiative is all about raising awareness for American Heart Month.  Every tweet/instagram you send triggers a donation by Diet Coke… up to $100,000!  So please… get instagramming!!!
