*Giveaway is now closed! Thank you everyone for entering*
Dearest readers, I apologize for not showing outfits or styling tips for several posts now. Boston weather is currently 30's and "wintry mix," so posing for outdoor photos without looking like rudolph the red nosed reindeer is tres difficile!
Instead I wanted to share with you guys some fun news that has me giddy...my awesome friend Stephanie of DSK Jewelry has invited me to join her family of "dsk models." Although I'm beyond flattered and proud to represent her brand, I'm a bit shy to join the ranks of the ladies on there!
I initially found DSK through Jen Frmheadtotoe (whom I found through Alterations Needed), and from Steph's sidebar I discovered some of the best beauty bloggers/youtubers out there - Eki, Pam, Stephie, and of course Jen as well. Earlier this year I also stalked DSK's 2010 model search where 44 beautiful girls competed to represent DSK (I voted for apetitediva Janine : ) ... I feel so lucky to have a spot with them. I'm just a conserv. petite clothing blogger!

Aside from being a passionate jewelry artisan, Steph is one of the best friends I've made on the blogger community. She and I are almost twins, climbing out of our wombs in the same month and year! We instantly hit it off chattering about food, shopping, and silly boyfriends. Check out her personal blog if you like beauty reviews, puppy pics, and extravagant Louboutin or LV hauls : ) Steph became a full-time entrepreneur after graduating from college, which I find hugely admirable. Wouldn't you love to be in the business of making others happy, or to work in a profession that you're truly passionate about?

Lol, excuse my gnarly flyaway hairs and "sideburns"! DSK jewelry is sparkly and youthful, but there definitely are pieces for the more conservative or mature dressers. Her jewelry is hand-made using quality materials...a lot of pretty Swarovski crystals and beads. Below are two items I love that are also work-appropriate:
Steph gave some advice a while back that really resonated with me..."Social media is powerful...we all have to look out for one another, and ignore the bad apples. You know who your real friends are over the course of time online." I've had some ups and downs throughout blogging, but the wonderful, wonderful friends I've made through readers and fellow bloggers alike have made it all worth it.
As a small way to spread the love, I'm giving away a pair of DSK lemon quartz wire-wrapped earrings (shown in the first photo up top). These were my first purchase, and I love the dainty yellow gem. Just leave a comment saying you'd like to enter, then visit Steph and say hi : ) I'll draw the winner before my next post.
