I was so impressed by Susan, the company’s founder, and immediately obsessed with the product: sweet little moccasins for babies. The tiny booties are durable, well designed, and most importantly stay on little feet! I definitely plan to get a pair for Jack once he’s out in the world and has a measurable foot, but until then, I just stalk the website every week and peruse their pretty colors. For a chance to win a pair (for your little one, your niece or nephew, a friend, or your future baby), please visit Freshly Picked and leave a comment below about which moccasins are your favorite. For an extra entry, pin one of the images in this post and leave a comment with a link to your pin. A winner will be chosen at random on Monday, July 7th. Good luck! UPDATE: The winner is Iliana R! Which moccasins do you you like the best?

Founded by two women (love that!), Orange Harp isn’t just about shopping, but more so about attaching meaning to the products we bring into our lives. The brands selected to be included on the app are hand-picked and must be committed to the Orange Harp philosophy… Design: Products are made of high-quality, natural, or renewable raw materials. Community: Brands care for communities by giving back and upholding fair standards—for people and animals. Planet: Practice energy-saving manufacturing techniques, eco-friendly shipping, and other methods that protect the earth. Even better, 1% revenue supports Not For Sale to help end modern-day slavery. Isn’t that great? I downloaded it a couple weeks ago and just think it is such a brilliant concept. Now, without further ado, the giveaway!! THE BRAND LOVEHEWN is an ethical fashion jewelry line crafted completely from vintage, recycled, and natural materials. THE PRODUCT LOVEHEWN’s Amber Agate River Stone Necklace is crafted from a slender vintage brass chain with a lovely rose gold patina, and a smooth, oval vintage amber agate stone. The necklace measures 18″ in length and the amber agate is approximately ...]]> 2 GIVEAWAY: Darling Art Prints Mon, 14 Oct 2013 17:02:04 +0000 In honor of my birthday tomorrow, I’ve decided to give you all a chance to win a special gift this week. I’ve partnered with Darling Magazine to give away two pretty prints—the Darling Magazine mission statement print, and the persona print of your choosing (I consider myself part Achiever, part Stylist). I personally am in love with the Issue No. 3 prints by Emma Block (shown at the top), but if you win you are welcome to choose any one print from the Issue No. 1 collection or the Issue No. 3 collection. Also, is that mission statement not the most inspiring and uplifting thing? Such good thoughts to dwell on. I think it would make a nice addition to a gallery wall. Here’s how you can enter to win… a Rafflecopter giveaway Which persona would you choose and why?]]> 43 Lindsay Letters + Anne The Adventurer Wed, 31 Jul 2013 21:27:00 +0000 0 {Giveaway} Stop Traffick Fashion Tote Bag Sat, 27 Jul 2013 12:00:00 +0000 1 {Giveaway} Two Boxes of KIND Bars Fri, 19 Jul 2013 12:00:00 +0000 UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. Scroll to the bottom to see the winner! KIND is a brand of all-natural foods that aims to make the world a little kinder through its KIND Movement, which inspires hundreds of thousands of acts of kindness around the world.

Just added to their line of clever flavors are Dark Chocolate Chili Almond–a sweet and spicy blend of mixed nuts drizzled in chocolate with a trio of cascabel, ancho and habanero chilies–and Maple Glazed Pecan & Sea Salt—a sweet and salty combination of pecans, almonds and peanuts covered in maple syrup with a touch of sea salt.

I discovered Nicole Santo’s Etsy shop, Grounded On The Daily, in April after posting a photo I found on Pinterest that was actually one of her hand-illustrated prints. Read on to learn more about the heart behind Nicole’s Etsy shop, as well as how you can win two hand-illustrated prints (BONUS: there’s discount code at the end of the post!)… Grounded On The Daily started as a Tumblr blog and a daily way to be creative with two of Nicole’s favorite things—quotes and watercolor (two of my favorite things, too!). According to Nicole, “Quotes are something that everyone connects to and a way to remember to stay grounded. Life is an adventure and it helps to be reminded daily to simply be thankful, to be happy and to just simply live.” Her shop is dedicated to hand-illustrated watercolor prints that are both beautiful and inspiring—and this week you have a chance to win your choice of two prints from the Grounded On The Daily shop!
