Gorgeous Give-away!

As part of the 52 Weeks of ME! Challenge "Halfway There Giveaway Event", I'm so excited to be giving away a really awesome pair of handmade earrings!

I love to buy local, and I discovered the neatest little bead shop in town, filled with gorgeous baubles and beautiful handmade jewelry.

It's a treat for me to be able to steal away and shop there from time to's not some place I would take the girls just yet, so it feels like a little retail oasis!

These earrings were handmade by the owner of the shop...Swarovski pearls in black, with galvanized silver delica beads on sterling silver leverback posts.

Wouldn't it put a nice bounce in your step to wear these?

If you'd like to win them, just leave a comment, telling me your favorite way to pamper yourself.
Easy-peasy...that's entry per person through July 7. The winner will be announced on July 8.

P.S. I'd love to have you follow my blog if you don't already do so...and/or follow me on Twitter @Twin Triumphs!

[And because I can't stand the thought of alienating my international friends, the giveaway is open to anyone. And because there are a handful of SuperDads who might just have found themselves here...please feel free to enter, too. I won't judge if you decide to keep these for yourself, but I'd bet your wife would really like them.]

These earrings are beautiful!!! Did you buy a pair for yourself? I think I would have! Thanks for the opportunity to win! My favorite way to pamper myself is a trip to the salon for a pedi, mani and haircut!! It is my absolute fave!

Thanks for not excluding me!!! I really hate being excluded from these things and for 90% we are.

Anyway, my favourite way to pamper myself is to lay in bed and read :)

James said...

My wife would love these.

Hmmm. My favorite way to pamper myself?

Locking any door that's between me and my kids. Bathroom. Bedroom. Office. Any will do. :)

Right now my hope is to have a few hours at the pool, in a lounge chair, alone...except a book and my iPod. Does that sound ridiculous?

Deanna said...

Pretty, pretty!

My favorite way to pamper myself is with a good book, clean sheets, and a long nap. It's an exciting life, I know. : )

Beautiful earrings. My favorite way to pamper myself is to relax with a cup of tea and a People magazine!

Beth said...

I love those earrings and how great to find a cute little locallhy owned shop!

My absolute favorite pampering is to meet my girlfriends. lunch, drinks or just coffee, but to get time to sit down relax and catch up. Yes, we spend 90% of the time talking about our kids, but we can do it without being interrupted!

Lovin' those earrings!!!

I pamper myself once every 4-6 weeks with a haircut, "blow-out" and eyebrow wax. I feel like a million bucks afterwards! :)

Be sure to come enter my Giveaway!

Beautiful earrings!

My favorite indulgence is a NAP. Ahhh...

Barbara Manatee said...

those look so elegant!

I think the way I pamper myself is to get my hair done on a regular basis and take good care of my skin.

Holly Ann said...

Those are so pretty! My favorite way to pamper myself is at the spa! (Oh so rarely) ;)

MultipleMum said...

These are lovely Mandy! I hope you ship to Australia??? I don't wear earrings but with my Buy Nothing New Challenge these would be a lovely regift for someone! I like to take a deep, long bubble bath for the ultimate pamper for me. Candles, oil, soft music, and a good book. Just lovely x

Julia said...

These are lovely. Buying local. A woman after my own heart. :)

Doing a yoga class is definitely "me" time.

reanbean said...

They look gorgeous! I haven't worn the dangly kind in so long, but I will if I happen to win these!

In the old days (BC), I would have said some time at the spa was my favorite way to pamper myself. But now, just having some time alone or alone with my hubby is my favorite way to pamper myself.

Onesie Mommy said...

Beautiful earrings... simply beautiful!

My favourite way to pamper myself is to sit down with a delicious, sweet coffee and a home decor magazine.

My favorite "Me Time" is a quiet day at the computer to digital scrapbook.

I like to go to the spa a few miles away and spend the morning rotating around: massage, steam room, hot tub, cool shower, steam room, hot tub, shower. I have a very specific rotation but usually allow for a little reading time between steam room and hot tub. :)

Johanna said...

I'm kinda on a winning roll here... and these earrings are lovely. Finally catching up on my favorite blogs, so sorry I am late on commenting. My favorite pampering pastime is sleep. I'm a loser. But I also love going out with my friends, reading, and perhaps the occasional pedicure.

I like to pamper myself by doing my hair, putting on make-up and wearing a nice pair of earrings. Doing these little things makes me feel great. Thanks for hosting...lovely earrings!

These are gorgeous! I've been meaning to comment but life is busy getting in my way!

I think my favorite way to pamper myself is a quick pedi. Just sitting in the bathroom after my shower painting my toes, WITH THE DOOR CLOSED! The excitement and interest from the ladies when they see my freshly painted tootsies is even more of a pick-me-up!
