I Won an Awesome Giveaway


Godet Cardigan, $95

Linen Cardigan, $165
I love to win!  Who doesn't right?  It doesn't even have to be much in order for me to get excited about it but I really hit the jackpot on this one.  One of my favorite and most fashionable bloggers Leslie over at Blonde Ambition hosted one of the best giveaways I've seen yet.  By the way she just got engaged and I cannot wait to see how beautiful her wedding turns out.  This is actually the first blog giveaway that I've ever entered.   We got to choose 2 of 5 items from Charli Girls.  Oh how my heart was yearning for these lovely sweaters as I did my entry even though I didn't really believe I had a chance in hell of winning.  Until I did!! I'm sure there were well over 100 entries and I was lucky #85! I'd never heard of this company before but I checked out their website and they've got some really cute stuff.  I love the muted colors and the weekend wear meets dressy style.  The fabrics are all soft and flowy.  This is truly the perfect prize.  I am always cold so sweaters are my best friend.  I try to have cute ones in a variety of neutral colors that go with everything because I don't ever leave the house without one.  Not only is the prize perfect but the timing couldn't be better.  I'm on a very limited budget right now and winning this gives me my little shopping fix. 

Mj laughs about my sweepstakes/contest entering ways.  It is not at all unusual for me to be simultaneously entering several different online contests at a time daily.  Part of me doesn't believe I will win but the other part of me figures why not try anyways.  Most of the time I don't win but this is a perfect example of how you just never know-for once it could be you!  It's been a long tiring week and I haven't been sleeping well.  Last night was my first good night of rest and finding out about this prize was the best way to start out my Friday.  Thanks again Leslie!!  Now, if I could just win that Dream house on HGTV I'd be all set!

  9. Congratulations to you! I never enter contests because I never win anything!

    I love both of the sweaters but am partial to the second one. I think you will look fabulous in either though.
