Mint to Be + Necklace Giveaway + I NEED YOUR HELP!!

Sorry, longest title ever!  Happy Hump Day yall!!  I have some EXCITING news!!!!  (No, I'm not pregnant.)  = )  Just in case yall don't keep reading, I figured I better put this at the beginning!  = )  Wallis a clothing store based in the UK and they have selected ME along with 27 other fashion bloggers to compete in a contest to become the FIRST US Ambassador for the clothing brand!!!  Can you believe that?!  Wallis has affordable clothing yet trendy clothing, and yall know I love a good deal!!  I think I would be a good fit for Wallis becasue I am all about trying to look fashionable while on a budget (until I win the lottery.)  I've said it before, but I try to buy clothes that double as work clothes, but can easily be transformed to going out clothes also.  Wallis has clothing just like that - cute floral blouses, striped blazers, polka dot dresses and more!  They work for me in the corporate world and then transition perfectly from day to night!  I will be styling a beautiful Wallis blouse next week, so stay tuned for that!  Vote for me here

It is 4:00am, and I've been up since 2:00am, I was so excited yall!!  Let's be honest here, I am probably the smallest and newest blogger (4 month anniversary today) competing!  I am beyond thrilled to even be chosen to compete; I truly am.  This blogging world has become something that I truly, truly love.  The people, the fashion and the accountability for getting myself to the greek...I mean gym!  I do not think I even have a chance at winning,  I mean, come on, I'm competing against some of my fashion blogger favorites like Shanna, Shannon, Kacie, Jessica - so many good ones!!  Some of them have 2, 3 or 4 times the amount of followers I do (for those of yall who follow me on Instagram, you know I hit 1,000 GFC followers yesterday, thank you!)  But, I just found out today that in addition to becoming the Wallis US Ambassador and representing the company for the next year, the winner will also win a trip to the UK where they will introduce her to the press at their Fall/Winter 2013 UK Press Preview.  What?!?!?  So, since I have rambled for like 2 paragraghs, but it would mean the absolute world to me if yall would take a minute and vote for me!  You can vote once every 24 hours, set that timer girls!!  Does your husband have Fbook, your kids, your momma, your neighbor, your ex (just kidding, but not really.)  = )  Seriously though, please share via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest (is that even possible?  I'm only a couple years behind, but I just joined!), email, text, anything.  I am not above begging and pleading (or doing another giveaway if I actually won, hint, hint, wink, wink!)  I will warn you, I will probably annoy and remind you every single day that you can vote here through April 9, 2013.  Once every 24 hours!  Did anyone keep a running tab on how many times I said "vote"?!  Thank yall so, so much...now for your regularly scheduled program...the Mini Messy Project and a giveaway!  Don't forget to enter the giveaway for a Brady Bands Headband here, a $200 Piperlime Gift Card here and a $20 Target Gift Card and an 8 x 10 Brittany Fuson Print of your choice here!


 Limited Faux Leather Skirt, but similar one here on sale for $29.99.  Last seen here.

Today, I am joining Messy Dirty Hair with the Mini Messy Project!!  Sooo what is the MINI project you ask?!  Well if you haven't guessed it yet its allllllll about the mini parts of fashion - the ACCESSORIES...which can also play a huge role in our everyday outfits. Just like clothes, accessories are also worn differently by each person depending on their style, shape, look etc. 
So the MINI project will focus only on accessories....but I don't mean just jewelry - tights, hats, sunglasses, headbands, bows, scarfs, shoes, belts, gloves are alllll accessories as well. 
The Deal
1 Accessory
4 Girls
4 Different Styles
1 Major Blog Day
 
Did you notice that gorgeous Mint Cuff Necklace above?  Well it was my accessory from the Mini Messy Project.  Yall know I love mint, and I don't have any collar or cuff style necklaces, so I was happy to have something a little different, and I would definiely wear it again.  It has a bit of a tough vibe, and I like that it makes a statement.  Do yall like it?
 
Check out how the other 3 girls styled it!

Now to the giveaway!! 

Remember the Evie J Bow Necklace I wore yesterday?  Well today I have partnered with Evie J to do a giveaway where you can win your very own Bow Necklace!!!  I have the gold necklace, and I wear it about every other day.  I even wrapped it around my wrist a couple of times and wore it as a bracelet one day.  It was the perfect length!  And if you can't wait to see if you won, you can use promo code evieinmemphis for 40% off your entire purchase through March 31, 2013!

  11. You had me at the first "vote here" (in my best Jerry Maguire voice). Voting is done, but please do remind me every day because you know I have a horrible memory. Love the shoes! I checked out the other ways the necklace was styled (maybe Melissa hasn't posted hers yet) and I definitely think yours is the best. I may be just a little biased though. So excited for your opportunity with Wallis!!!

  41. CONGRATS on the nomination! I can't believe how many bloggers I already follow that are nominated. I wish I could vote for all of you (which I probably will!).

    And that bow necklace is SO pretty and delicate. I think I would wear it with a gingham shirt...the contrast of the pattern with the simple bow would be fun.
