Mixing Patterns Gingham + Oia Jules Bracelet Giveaway!!

First I want to thank yall for the really sweet words yesterday.  It was really nice, unexpected and meant a lot to me.  I promise I'll give yall more details soon when I'm ready to talk about it more.  Enough of the gushy stuff for now.  = )  It's Hump Day, also known as my Friday this week!  All I have to do after I get off work is get a pedicure, pack, take an Economics test, take my Accounting midterm and then record audio for my Marketing project...then I'm in offical vacation mode!  Almost there.  I've already decided I will probably be up all night tonight and not go to sleep...but that's okay because I'll be in Vegas tomorrow!  I'm still not sure how I'm going to hit a jackpot though when I don't have any money to gamble on...oh well, I'll figure out the details when I get there.  It'll be my first trip to Vegas and I can't wait!!  Okay, I'll stop with the Vegas talk until tomorrow, then I'll bombard you with all my IG picturesKeep reading to enter the giveaway for a gorgeous Oia Jules bracelet!!  Don't forget to enter the giveaway for the $300 Kate Spade Handbag here and the Modcloth Pearl Stud Earrings here!

Old Navy Gingham Shirt.  $24.94.  $5 off $25 coupon here.
Bebe White Pencil Skirt.  Old, but similar style here on sale here for $27.93.
Michael Kors Ritz Two Tone Watch.  $250.  Last seen here.
On Saturday we woke up and it was snowing!  Even though I'm having withdrawals and need spring in my life yesterday, I was excited because it meant Shane couldn't work, so we got to spend the day together.  This is all the snow we got.  It didn't stick, and it melted almost immediately, but it was pretty while it lasted. 
After Shane got his 15 hour beauty sleep in, we went to the Y and played racquetball for a couple of hours.  He kicked my butt all 10 games we played.  Still fun though.  = )  Then we went to Huey's for some lunch. 
  I had a side salad for an appetizer, and then grilled salmon for my entree, and it was surprisingly good.  Afterall, Huey's is a burger joint.  = )
And then this happened!  So worth it though.  = )  Homemade sweet potato fries with icecream and caramel.  Very unique, so I couldn't pass that up!
Now for the giveaway winners!!
Per my usual, I got really, really excited after I drew the name for the HarePeace No Slip Headband, so I drew another one and another one - yeah, I think you see the pattern here.  So, I drew five winners.  The first name I drew got their choice of color and so on until the last one drawn got the last color left, but hey at least 5 people are winning now (and not just Charlie Sheen.)  If you won, please email me today so I can mail them out before I head out of town.  = )

Rose Gold Chunky Chain & Aurora Borealis Rhinestone Bracelet

A couple of weeks ago I asked everyone on Instagram if they wanted me to give away this bracelet above or the one I'm wearing the pictures above.  It was a tie, so I went with the Rose Gold, Gold and Aurora Borealis one.  It is even more beautiful in person, and the quality is just incredible!

To enter all you need to do is:
1.)  Make sure you're following me via GFC.
2.)  Make sure you're following me via BlogLovin.
3.)  Leave me a comment letting me know how you would style the bracelet.
Since I'll be out of town, this giveaway will run through next Tuesday, March 12 at 7:00pm, and I'll announce the winner the next day.

(already thinking in my head if I had won this! haha)
