Happiness to us All with a Giveaway!

2 years may not seem like a long time to some of you. Especially since I know that many bloggers out there have been doing this job for 5 or even 10 years. But it is a milestone, and I wanted to celebrate it somehow with all of you by hosting a giveaway!

First, I’d like to thank my friend, Pam, for this lively picture. I was helping her organize her photos and she had a duplicate of this one. I thought it would be so appropriate for showing a roller coaster, marking the similarity of the fun and ups & downs that this blogging journey has been!

And it certainly has been a adventure for the 3 of us! My focus today is to show you, my readers, my appreciation for all your support of my blog. So make sure you go to the Rafflecopter below and do a couple of entries into my giveaway.

Just in case you haven’t been around since the beginning, I thought I’d share a couple of the first posts I published.

This was the Fur Vest Series where the 3 of us all wore my fur vest. This was before I categorized them, but we are all wearing skirts or dresses in this particular post!

And this series was about Glitter clothing items!

Both of these and many other early posts were formatted somewhat differently and the pictures were not the best quality (not that they are always spot on now, but I certainly know more about the process and am trying hard to make them better!).

If you’re ever looking for other styling outfits on my blog, I do keep a index of past posts that you can peruse. I occasionally try to go back to the earlier posts and update the picture sizes and shopping, but it can be a long and tedious process. So feel free to have a good laugh when you look back and tell me which was your favorite!!


I thought long and hard about what I thought would be appropriate and fun for my readers. I decided that a Nordstrom gift card would be wonderful for any woman! This is a $100 gift card that can be used at Nordstrom or Nordstrom Rack. You may shop at a brick & mortar store or online. I picked this particular company because I figured they are more of a splurge store for many of us. That being said, they have quite a few affordable brands and items available all year long.

I also chose Nordstrom because of their free standard shipping (in the US) and ease of returns. I realize that many women do not enjoy the shopping experience, so I might as well make it be as easy as possible! If you do live outside of the USA, then Nordstrom does offer international shipping. However, the international shipping is not free and you’re not eligible for free returns.

The giveaway runs for 5 days—so have at it and enjoy!!

Thanks tons from Jodie (the 50’s model), Nancy (the 60’s model) and Charlotte (the 70’s model)
