WIN an Alex and Ani Paw Charm Bracelet! #DaisyGotchaDay #Giveaway

alexanigiveaway

I can’t believe another year has past since we last celebrated Daisy’s adoption anniversary or “Gotcha Day”! The actual date is still a few weeks away (July 21st) but I thought now was a great time to begin the celebrations! I decided to treat myself to a gift to commemorate four lovable years with our silly rescue pup, and bought myself an Alex and Ani Paw Print Charm Bracelet to mark the occasion.

Not only is it symbolic because of the paw print design, but it’s also got a special meaning because it’s part of the Alex and Ani Charity by Design collection, meaning that 20% of sales will go directly to supporting, healing, and finding caring homes for dogs and cats. Plus it’s SUPER cute, so what’s NOT to love about it?!?

We wouldn’t dream of leaving YOU out of the celebration, so we’re hosting a giveaway and treating one lucky winner to their choice of silver-tone or gold-tone Alex and Ani Paw Charm Bracelet!!!

Entering is super fast and easy. Just use the Rafflecopter widget below and complete as few or as many of the optional entry methods as you wish. The giveaway is open to US residents age 18+. Good luck to everybody, and thanks so much for being a part of our online family!

Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry from Sitara Collections ~ Review + Giveaway

Sitara handcrafted jewelry

Mother’s Day will be here before you know it so it’s time to start thinking about getting Mom something special! Sitara Collections recently invited me to review their work on my blog, and sent me a few lovely pieces from their handcrafted artisan jewelry collection. One lucky reader is also going to WIN something to keep for themselves or give as a gift!

Sitara Collections is an online boutique specializing in handcrafted, artisan jewelry, home decor, gifts and fashion items that you won’t find anywhere else. All the items they sell are handmade and the company supports fair labor practices to ensure that all their artisans are fairly paid for their beautiful work.

Although my photos don’t do either piece justice, they’ll still give you a great idea of what you can expect if you order something for yourself or to give as a gift. Each item arrives with a gold gift box and beautiful drawstring jewelry pouch. You or your recipient also receive a card explaining where the jewelry was handcrafted, and about it being fairly traded. Because the sale of Sitara Collections pieces helps support women artisans in locations such as India and Latin America, it’s a really nice idea for a Mother’s Day gift; give your mom something special and help other women support their families, too!

I love these earrings!

Aren’t these earrings gorgeous?!? When I saw them online, I just knew I had to have them! The color is more vibrant than my photos portray. These Pear-Shaped Gemstone Drop Earrings come in Smoky Quartz, Green Amethyst, Rose Quartz, Chalcedony, Garnet, Green Onyx and Black Onyx. The ones I’m wearing are the Chalcedony and I love them because they look as great with a ponytail, t-shirt and jeans as they do with a sundress and sandals.

stacked bracelets

I also love this beautiful Carnelian Om Bracelet. It looks gorgeous on its own but I have several other silver bracelets from Mexico, Thailand and India and love wearing them all stacked together. This one adds just the right pop of color! Sitara Collections has a really nice assortment of bracelets, so whether you like to mix your metals and gemstones or keep it simple, you’ll find some amazing arm candy to match your style.

In addition to the handcrafted jewelry, you’ll also find lovely home accents and textiles, handbags, hair accessories and wraps plus Ayurvedic health and beauty products and even stuff for kids and babies. Each time I’ve shopped the site, I’ve noticed that they offer a discount code for your first order, so be sure to keep an eye out in their Shop, or sign up for their newsletter. Right now, the offer is 15% OFF with Sitara Collections promo code SAVE15 at checkout. You can also visit them on Facebook for more photos and other offers.

Top Ways To Help Animals + WIN an ASPCA #FightCruelty Prize Pack!

We’ve got a very special giveaway for a GREAT cause and we hope you will all join in AND share this post with your friends, family and followers! This is an opportunity to WIN a cool ASPCA #FightCruelty Prize Pack, but even more importantly, it’s a chance to learn about lots of ways to get involved and help make a difference in the lives of animals.

ASPCA Top Ways to Help Animals

The ASPCA has put together a super helpful list of Top Ways To Help Animals In Your Community:

  • Learn how to report animal cruelty. One of the best things you can do to help animals in your community is to keep a list of people, including a humane law enforcement officer, a teacher or your veterinarian, who can help you report animal cruelty. Every state is different. In some areas, the police department investigates animal cruelty; in others, that job falls to local animal control or another municipal agency. If you aren’t sure where to report cruelty, visit ASPCA’s Report Animal Cruelty section.
  • Start a neighborhood watch program. Get to know the animals in your neighborhood and invite your friends and neighbors to do the same. Together you can keep an eye out for any suspicious behaviors—abuse and neglect of companion animals, the mistreatment of local wildlife, dogs left in hot cars and other signs of abuse.
  • Volunteer at your local shelter or animal rescue organization. Volunteering at your local shelter is a great way to make a difference in the lives of many animals. From walking dogs and organizing fundraising events to fostering abused or frightened animals, shelters across the country are in desperate need of volunteers. Be sure to visit Ten Ways to Help Your Local Shelter for more suggestions.
  • Become an animal activist. Visit the lobby section at ASPCA to find out everything you can do to raise awareness for animal rights.
  • Read the full list to discover even more ways you can get involved and help!

WIN an ASPCA Fight Cruelty Prize Pack!
