Anyone who has met me likely knows (already) that I am very excitable. Most every day I act like a kid on Christmas morning…animated, childish, loving, and happy. I am constantly in awe of things around me, full of wonder, and think miniature anything is the cutest.thing.ever. All that to say I am a kid in a candy store today, excited to be doing my first blog giveaway!
Thanks to my friend Rachel Callahan earlier this month I attended an Alabama Blogger event at The Outlet Shops of Grand River to get some fashion tips and learn about the newest Fall trends from Tracy James Robinson of Chic Made Simple. It was a gloriously successful day that ended with me discovering my new favorite clothing store, Maurices, and buying way too many cute clothes. In our swag bags, the Shops included a $50 Gift Card to give away to one of our wonderful blog readers. I’ve decided to make this a fun giveaway voted on BY the people, FOR the people.
Picture Perfect Holiday Giveaway
I’m sending you on a picture-taking field trip. Below are the criteria:
- Picture #1 – Yourself with a holiday elf
- Picture #2 – Yourself with any item sold at the Shops at Grand River or by any of the parent shops associated with the outlet stores found at Grand River. (Example: if you own a Coach purse or a piece of Le Creuset, take a picture of yourself with it. You can find a complete list of shops here.)
- Picture #3 – Yourself with your favorite thing in or about Birmingham.
Bonus points for creativity and originality!
Your submission will be the 3 pictures emailed to me at sherri at yougotrossed dot com. All 3 pictures together will count as 1 (one) entry into the contest. One entry per person.
I will choose 3 finalists from all entries and post them in a new blog post on December 7th. I will then enlist you, my faithful blog readers, to vote on your favorite set of pictures in the Comments section of that post and the one with the most votes at 5 p.m. on December 14th will win the gift card…just in time to get some holiday shopping done at the best outlet stores around!
Happy picture taking!
If you haven’t visited the Shops yet, I encourage you to do so. Ever since moving back to Birmingham a few years ago, I’ve been a frequent guest of them. I love that I can tackle any and all gifts in one place at one time for any occasion. The drive isn’t far, the deals are phenomenal, and the selection is outstanding.
Find peace inside.
