100+ followers = my first GIVEAWAY!!!

om freaking f g. 
i am so so so beyond psyched to see that i have more than 100 followers...

...so psyched that i am going to host my very first giveaway!!! yaaaay!

the winner will receive her choice, either: 
grace pearl earrings or starfish earrings - both beautiful and perfect for spring and summer!  one's classic, one's so preppy and cute, i wanted to let the winner make her own choice!

 

to get entries:
leave individual comments (because i'm lazy and am going to use the random number generator) for each of the following:
1) comment and tell me your favorite thing on www.stellanddot.com/alannastrei and why (1 entry)
2) link back to this giveaway in a blog post and link me to your post (1 entry)
3) become a follower! (or comment to let me know if you already are one) (1 entry)

yay!! this is really dorky, but as soon as i hit like 79 followers i was like 'sweet jesus, if you ever bless me with 100 people who are willing to read my mindless blathering about being stuck on a FREAKING SHIP [i went on in this prayer, a lot more about being stuck on the ship, then i complained about not being able to lose these last 10 pounds, then i prayed for luck getting a boyfriend...i kind of got a little off topic, but then i finished finally and prayed...] I WILL HOST AN AMAZING GIVEAWAY!'

and other sidenote: becky has convinced christina that we're going to go to vegas when i get back from deployment.  THANK YOU BABY JESUS, YOU WERE LISTENING!

eta: giveaway will end at 1159pm 28feb10...my time. and given that we're transiting back toward SD and shifting clocks constantly, i have no idea technically what time that will be...it's a myyyyystery!!

I love everything on Stella and Dot! I LOVE all the statement necklaces! If I had to choose one of the earrings I would probably choose the gold/pearl ones! I love them both but would get more use out of the pearl ones! Starfish are in for spring though!

On their site my ABSOLUTE favorite is the Colorburst Enamel Cuff- Green/Turq. Green is my favorite color and this cuff has just a hint of green (so it wouldn't overpower the green I"m already always wearing! :) Of the earings I love the starfish ones, they are so whimsical, absolutely adorable.
