Stella & Dot: A Giveaway!

Oh you guys, I am SO excited about this one, because c'mon, who doesn't love a good piece of jewelry?

I have to admit to you, I didn't really care all that much about jewelry until I had this pack of kids.

Let me tell you why:  It takes time to put on makeup.  Even more time to shower.  I don't remember the last time I've used an actual hairdryer instead of the air to dry my hair.  It's a good day when I pull out my flat iron instead of grabbing yet another binder and throwing my hair up in a ponytail.  And I'll put on my perfectly-fitting designer jeans in the morning but no promises that they won't be covered in baby spitup and smeared with peanut butter by noon.

Time is not on my side.  But a frump I will not become.  I have standards, people.

Enter jewelry.  It takes only seconds to find and put on and it instantly says to the world, "I still care about the appearance I'm putting forth."

I think every woman has their own little jewelry fetish and for me, hands down, it's earrings.  Oh how I love a good dangle.

It's gotten to the point where I feel actual nakedness if I'm not wearing earrings.  Even when I'm working out I've been known to wear the diamond stud earrings Brian got me so long ago for one of our anniversaries.

So you can imagine my excitement when my sister-in-law, Nicole, became a Stella & Dot consultant.

I know what you're thinking.  Another house party where they're trying to sell you something.  But I think this is different.  For one, it's just good, fashionable jewelry.  No gimmicks.  And two, Nicole is just another mom of four trying to make her way in the world.  And I think we all, me especially, can applaud and support that.

So back to the jewelry.  Shall we?
I already own these earrings in green but now I think I might need them in blue. 
If you're a necklace person, don't you love the simplicity of this rope necklace?

And how about wearing this brightly-colored bangle instead of a watch?

I seriously love them all!

A Giveaway!
Nicole has graciously offered a $40 Stella & Dot credit to one of my readers!  To enter, simply head on over to Nicole's Stella & Dot site and have a look around.  Then come back to this post and leave a comment telling me what you would buy if you won.  That site is also where you can make purchases if you see anything you like.  Or, if you happen to live nearby, I would love it if you stopped by on May 30 to see all the jewelry pieces in person and have a glass of wine (or two?) with yours truly.

The contest will end at noon on Wednesday, May 29 at which point I will randomly pick one commenter.  Remember to include a way for me to contact you if you win: email, website, Twitter handle, Facebook page, etc.  Please, only one entry per person.

*Nicole is providing one of my readers with a $40 credit toward a purchase at Stella & Dot.  I was given no product or monetary compensation for this post.  I simply love Stella & Dot...and my sister-in-law.

This contest is now closed. The winner was commenter #12.  Congrats, Shelley!


  1. What an awesome site! I would buy the Wanderlast triple wrap in any color!!! loved them!!!!

  2. I'd either get the Charlize Teardrop earrings or the On The Mark necklace. And if I didn't have a Basilica Block Party committee meeting the night of the 30th, I would for sure be at your house meeting all the kiddos.

  3. I started off looking at the necklaces because I love dressing up with a necklace but quickly remembered the phase the babies are in which is grabbing at everything in reach so decided no necklaces today. I am known to wear the same diamond earrings everyday because they are just easy to grab. I too feel naked without earrings and I may not wear any other jewelry but I will always have my earrings in. I have to agree with your pick of the Serenity Stone Drops. They are simple but dressy.

  4. With a new baby, earrings and necklaces are out of the question right now :)However, I really like this:

  5. Oooh, I'd get the serenity small stone earrings in that light blue. So pretty!

  6. I would get the Dakota necklace or the Secret Garden Cluster; I've been feeling a Native American vibe lately...

  7. Definitely the serenity stone drop earrings...wish I could have them in every color!

  8. Love necklaces! I'm obsessed with all those colorful bib necklaces, so it was hard to choose. But I think the Dot Bloom necklace completely takes the cake for me. Dress it with a fun striped dress or just a plain old tank top, it makes a gorgeous feminine statement.
    My second favorite necklace that I chose based on daily simplicity is the Maya pendant necklace in that awesome turquoise color. What a great "neutral" that would make me feel dressed up and colorful everyday no matter what!

    You know where to find me...:)

  9. I am very excited to be having party in August because my jewelry collection needs a serious change, however I need some help now. I love bracelets these days and earrings, but seem to always be wearing my studs too (way too easy)... My necklace collection is seriously lacking so a credit would be very beneficial to my jewelry box.... Stella & Dot does have such cute stuff!!!

  10. I would love to get the Clover Single Wrap Leather Bracelet.

  11. I'm super into stackable bracelets so I am all over the Hope Bracelet. Super versitle. Love it. Pick me, I didn't get a chance to use the baby formula.
    Smooches doll.

  12. I love the Ever After necklace!
